TubeSolar, Blackrock Gold and FCR Real Estate: money makes the world go round
Filled company coffers open up many opportunities to seize growth opportunities. From a timing point of view, capital increases or new investments are therefore often interesting. Which companies are now sitting on high level liquidity that can be invested profitably, or who will soon receive new funds? Here are three companies that investors should take a closer look at right now.

TubeSolar AG - AgroPhotovoltaic play with a lot of potential
The share certificates of TubeSolar AG have only been listed since February 14. The Augsburg-based company is a spin-off of the laboratory production including patents of OSRAM/LEDVANC. TubeSolar has been manufacturing photovoltaic thin-film tubes that are assembled into modules since 2019. These thin-film tubes for solar energy generation have considerable advantages over silicon solar modules, for example in terms of weight, geometry, material usage, and yield.
The technology is to be used primarily in the agricultural sector (agro-photovoltaics) and span agricultural production areas. In the next few years, it is expected to expand production in Augsburg to an annual production capacity of 250 MW.
TubeSolar AG has announced that it is aiming for a capital increase with subscription rights and a listing on the m:access of the Munich Stock Exchange.
The company plans to put a production facility with a capacity of 20 MW into operation in the fiscal year 2021. For this purpose, the Free State of Bavaria will grant the company an investment subsidy of up to EUR 10.8 million. This exciting company currently has a market capitalization of EUR 83.5 million.
Blackrock Gold Corp - Waiting for the next price boost
Blackrock Gold is an exploration company focused on the discovery of gold and silver deposits in the State of Nevada. Nevada, also known as the "Silver State", is one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world.
At the beginning of June, the stock started a rapid upward movement, which led from CAD 0.30 to almost CAD 1.60 within a very short time. Extensive investment commitments of CAD 12 million, including CAD 5 million from industry icon Eric Sprott, were the reasons for this. The share is currently quoted at CAD 0.90 and is valued at around CAD 100 million. With its coffers full, the company has now increased the 2020 exploration program to identify high-grade zones. Four targets have been defined on the Tonopah project.
The Silver Cloud project, as the company recently announced, will most likely be spun off into a separate exploration company. The company's management is currently considering that Blackrock shareholders will receive one SpinCo share for every three shares held. The market is now waiting for approval.
It is only a matter of time before the share price will increase as a result of new drill results. The spin-off of the Silver Cloud project will also have a positive effect.
FCR Immobilien AG - Capital increase and change to the regulated market planned
FCR Immobilien, listed on m:access, intends to carry out a capital increase and is also planning a segment change from scale to regulated trading. FCR reported that it has "adopted a comprehensive package of measures for the planned growth of the company."
A securities prospectus, for the short-term implementation of the segment change, and the capital increase, was submitted to BaFin. Further details of KE are not yet available. The funds received from the planned cash capital increase, with subscription rights for existing shareholders and public offering, are to be used to expand the real estate portfolio. FCR intends to expand its real estate portfolio from over EUR 300 million by a further EUR 160 million.
FCR is a specialized investor for shopping and specialty shopping centers in Germany, focusing on promising secondary locations that offer above-average yield potential due to their location. FCR also invests opportunistically in the asset classes: office, residential, and logistics. The company has set a target of EUR 11.1 million in earnings before taxes for the current fiscal year. The share is thus favorably valued.
