GS Sweden AB (publ) (the “Company” or “GomSpace”), parent company of GomSpace ApS, intends to carry out a private placement of up to 1.75 million new shares.
With support from the authorization granted by the extraordinary general meeting held on April 28, 2016, the board of directors has engaged Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ) to evaluate the possibility to carry out a private placement of up to 1.75 million new shares through a so called “accelerated book-building” procedure. The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights are mainly to bring institutional shareholders into the Company and at the same time strengthen the Company’s financial position in a short timeframe. The potential proceeds from the private placement are intended to be used to finance and facilitate accelerated expansion, nearby acquisition opportunities and development of GomSpace, its market and its products.
Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ) is acting as financial advisor and Setterwalls Advokatbyrå acts as legal advisor in connection with the private placement.
