- SoFFin has acquired approximately 295 million shares resulting from the capital increase approved by the Annual General Meeting at EUR 6 per share and thus holds a stake of 25% plus one share in Commerzbank.
The capital increase was registered in the commercial register (Handelsregister) today. Commerzbank received a total of around EUR 1.8 billion from the increase in its share capital. In addition, the bank has now received the second SoFFin silent participation of EUR 8.2 billion.
We are a reliable partner and an effective provider of financial services to private customers. We are the best bank from the point of view of German SMEs, and as such we successfully support our customers’ business activities – here in Germany and worldwide.
