Approval of the resolution by the Board of Directors to issue new units consisting of shares and warrants with preferential rights for the shareholders
The Annual General Meeting resolved to approve the Board of Directors’ resolution of 15 May 2023, on issuance of units, in the form of new shares and warrants giving right to subscribe for new shares, with preferential rights for the shareholders. The issue comprises no more than 69,958,496 new shares and no more than 41,954,941 warrants of series TO2, which may be subscribed for and allotted together in the form of so called units where each unit consists of two (2) shares and one (1) warrant of series TO2. After the issue, the shares and the warrants will be separated. Two (2) warrants entitles to subscription of one (1) new share in the Company.
The shareholders of the Company shall have preferential rights to subscribe for units. For each share held on the record date, the shareholder receives one unit right, whereby one unit right entitles to subscribe for one unit. The record date for determining which shareholders shall be entitled to subscribe for units on a preferential basis shall be 16 June 2023.
In case not all units have been subscribed for, the Board of Directors shall decide that allotment of units subscribed for without unit rights shall take place up to the maximum amount of the issue, whereby the Board of Directors primarily will allot units to those who also subscribed for units based on unit rights, and in the event of over subscription, pro rata to their subscription based on unit rights. Secondly, the Board of Directors will allot units to those who subscribed for units without unit rights, and if full allotment cannot be made, pro rata to their subscription. To the extent not possible, allotment shall be made through drawing of lots, and finally, subject to such allocation being required in order for the issue to be fully subscribed, to the guarantors of the issue.
Warrants may also, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, be subscribed for by underwriters in the rights issue that have chosen to receive compensation in the form of newly issued units.
The subscription price is SEK 1.60 per unit, corresponding to SEK 0.80 per share. The warrants are issued free of charge. In the case of full subscription, this provides issuing proceeds of approximately MSEK 56.
Subscription for units with or without unit rights shall be made during the period from 20 June 2023 until, and including 7 July 2023. The Board of Directors shall be entitled to extend the subscription period. Trading with unit rights is expected to take place during the period from 20 June 2023 until, and including 4 July 2023. Trading in BTU (Paid Subscribed Units) is expected to take place from 20 June 2023 until, around week 30 2023.
Authorisation for the Board of Directors to resolve on a new share issue
The Annual General Meeting resolved on authorisation for the Board of Directors to, within the limits of the applicable Articles of Association, with or without deviating from the shareholders' preferential rights, on one or more occasions during the period until the next Annual General Meeting, resolve on an increase in the Company's share capital through a new issue of shares in the Company.
