D. Carnegie & Co completes a directed issue of approximately 6.5 million Class B shares and raises proceeds of approximately 474 MSEK
D. Carnegie & Co AB (publ) (the ”Company”) has, based on the authorisation granted to the board of directors by the Company’s extraordinary general meeting on 23 March 2016 and in accordance with the Company’s indications in a press release published on 4 April 2016, resolved to carry out a directed cash share issue of 6,539,900 Class B shares at a subscription price of SEK 72.50 per share (the ”Issue”). The subscription price in the Issue has been determined through an accelerated book-building process led by SEB and ABG Sundal Collier. Subscribers in the Issue are approximately 60 Swedish and international institutional investors. The reason for deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to diversify the institutional shareholder base and in a time efficient manner secure partial financing of the repayment of three convertible subordinated loans in the Company and a promissory note issued by the Company in order to improve the Company’s capital structure and financing. Through the Issue, the Company will receive proceeds amounting to approximately 474 MSEK before transaction costs.
The Issue has a dilutive effect of approximately 8.5 per cent in relation to the number of existing shares in the Company due to an increase in the number of outstanding shares to 77,308,776 (divided into 5,369,866 Class A shares and 71,938,910 Class B shares).
In order to facilitate the delivery of shares to the investors in the Issue, Svensk Bolig Holding AB has undertaken to lend 6,539,900 Class B shares to SEB and ABG Sundal Collier. The shares will be returned as soon as the Issue has been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.
