The net proceeds of the Offering will be used for general corporate and refinancing purposes and to provide the Company with the financial flexibility to accelerate the execution of its growth strategy. The increased attention for health and wellbeing, due to COVID-19, is expected to lead to increased demand for fitness and higher fitness penetration levels in our countries. At the same time the Company expects increased availability of good sites at better terms compared to pre COVID-19. Next to organic growth, Basic-Fit will also be considering (small) bolt-on acquisitions if these opportunities would present themselves.
