As previously communicated, the issue was directed at a limited number of shareholders assessed as having the capacity to be cornerstones of the long-term ownership structure. Cantaloupe AB (Sinch founders Björn Zethraeus, Kristian Männik, Robert Gerstmann and Henrik Sandell) joined Stronghold Invest and Hans Runesten, main shareholder in Effnetplattformen (EFFP) and a director of Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget, as anchor investors and provided commitments to subscribe for about 45 percent of the issue. In conjunction, all have committed to join the reverse IPO of Effnetplattformen on the same terms as the majority shareholders. The remainder of the issue, about 55 percent, has been allotted to four new investors including Dragfast AB, which is now the second-largest shareholder in Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget.

“We are proud to welcome Dragfast and other prominent names to the previously announced additions to the list of shareholders in Tessin. Although the strong interest in investing in Tessin was perhaps not unexpected, we are no less pleased by the confidence shown in us by several highly respected investors”, says Jonas Björkman, CEO and co-founder of Tessin. “With Illja Batljan, Dragfast and Cantaloupe among the new major shareholders, we have put together something of a dream team, who together represent vast experience and networks in the real estate sector as well as experience building one of the most successful tech companies in Sweden.”

Tessin was founded in 2014 and is now the leading Nordic digital investment platform in the property financing segment, in terms of brokered capital. At the end of 2020, Tessin had almost 55,000 registered members on the platform. The business is based on a proprietary digital platform that links property developers seeking loan financing with investors seeking exposure to a high-return asset class with balanced risk and backed by collateral, primarily property mortgages.

At present, Tessin primarily offers construction and bridge loans to small and medium-sized property companies and property developers. The loans are funded through the Tessin platform by a syndicate of private, professional and institutional investors who are given the opportunity to invest in secured real estate loans with attractive yields. Tessin currently operates in Sweden and Finland. Since its founding, the company has brokered more than SEK 2.8 billion in financing to more than 260 different real estate projects. This has contributed making the building of around 5,000 residential units, as well as numerous commercial spaces and public buildings, a reality. Since the beginning, the equivalent of around SEK 1.8 billion has been repaid to platform members and the average annual return has been around 8.4 percent.

Financial information about Tessin is available in the 2020 year-end report (in Swedish).
