Terms for the Directed Issues
The board of directors of Heliospectra has today, pursuant to the authorization granted by the annual general meeting on 19 May 2022, resolved on the Directed Issues. Through the Directed Issues the number of shares in the Company will increase by 20,694,082 and the share capital will increase by SEK 2,069,408.20. The issue fund has been made by set-off of the remaining parts of the Loans, see below for exact statement of the issue fund for each Principal Owner.
The subscription price for the shares is SEK 1.253 per share, which correspondence to a premium of approximately 25.3 percent compared to the shares closing price on 9 September. The subscription price has been determined after negotiations at arms’ length between the Company and the Principal Owners, respectively. Overall, the Company’s board of directors is of the opinion that the subscription price is market-based, based on the current circumstances.
The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is an opportunity to raise capital on favourable terms in order to strengthen the Company’s liquidity and working capital in a time- and cost-effective manner, which has been of material importance for the Company’s management given the severe financial situation of the Company. According to the board of directors, this indicates all in all and with sufficient strength that it is in the shareholders’ interest to carry out a issue of new shares with derivation from the shareholders’ preferential rights.
