Numis has supported St. Modwen Properties PLC, a FTSE 250 British housebuilder and logistics firm, on its £1.3bn buy-out by Blackstone, the New York-based private equity firm.

The final offer price was 560p per share in cash, a 21.1% premium to net asset value and a 38.3% premium to the three-month VWAP.

Numis played an important role as Joint Financial Advisor and Joint Broker from the first approach through to completion, providing input on value, tactics and shareholder engagement to achieve shareholder value.

“Numis knows St Modwen and our shareholders very well, having supported us over the years. Their deep understanding of our company was invaluable in their role as joint financial advisor on the transaction.”
