Brighter draws down the fourth tranche under the financing agreement with L1 Capital and issues additional free warrants to its shareholders.
Brighter has called upon a fourth Tranche of SEK 10 million in line with the terms from the financing agreement communicated on the 26thof April 2017. The transaction is carried out through a private placement of convertible notes with warrants attached. It is the fourth tranche out of a total of up to 8 tranches totaling SEK 100 million. It is precised that SEK 48.2 million of Notes of the previous Tranches out of the SEK 50 million have been converted into equity as of today, strengthening the company’s balance sheet.
This investment as part of the agreement as such, serves as a great foundation regarding availability of financial resources for the company’s continuous strategic and product development and enables Brighter to make further progress preparing for the launch and production of Actiste on national and international markets.
In connection with this transaction, Brighter will, similarly to the previous Tranches, also issue free warrants to existing shareholders, to protect them against dilution. The record date to receive one (1) free shareholder warrant (TO4) for every sixty (60) shares is December 21, 2017, which means that the last day of trading of shares including the right to receive TO4 is December 19, 2017. The first day of trading in the share excluding the right to TO4 will be December 20, 2017. The free shareholder warrants are of the same type as the investor’s.
Highlights about the transaction:
- Fourth Tranche issued under a Private placement of SEK 10 million launched today through the issuance of Notes with Warrants attached.
- Upon the full exercise of the Warrants of the previous and fourth Tranches and the related Shareholders Warrants, the investment can reach an additional SEK 61.1 million. It is reminded that Brighter already received SEK 5.3 million from the exercise of Warrants of the first Tranche (TO3) on the first exercise period.
- L1 Capital and Brighter have agreed that the Warrants issued under this fourth Tranche shall be the same as those issued under the second and third Tranches, i.e. TO4, in order to maintain a visible and simplified structure of the instruments already admitted to trading on Nasdaq First North (shares, Warrants TO3 related to first Tranche and Warrants TO4 related to second, third and fourth Tranche) for the market and the shareholders.
