Dutch fashion retailer C&A, shareholders to raise about $445 million in Brazil IPO: sources

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - C&A Modas SA, the Brazilian unit of Dutch fast-fashion retailer C&A, and its shareholders expect to raise 1.8 billion reais ($445.5 million) in its IPO, including supplementary and additional share allotments, two people told Reuters.

C&A and its bankers have set the price of its shares at 16.50 reais, a securities filing showed on Thursday, at the bottom of a previously set range of 16.50-20 reais.

The company and its shareholders sold 1.6 billion reais worth of shares, according to the filing.

High demand in the offering allowed the company and its bankers to sell the full supplementary allotment, that will raise the total deal value to 1.8 billion reais over the next days, added the people, who have knowledge of the matter but did not want to be named as the information is not yet public.

The Dutch retailer, controlled by the Brenninkmeijer family, also sold part of its stake in the Brazilian company, reducing its stake to roughly 64%, according to the people.

The investment banking units of Morgan Stanley MS.N, Banco Bradesco SA BBDC4.SA, Banco BTG Pactual SA BPAC3.SA, Citigroup Inc C.N, Banco Santander Brasil SA SANB11.SA and XP Investimentos SA managed the offering.
