‒ The rights issue represents a powerful move by Hemfosa and we are pleased that the response has been so positive. Our clear ambition is to continue growing and we see many attractive business opportunities in our three geographical markets. We have now created greater scope for acquisitions, which will allow us to continue to establish Hemfosa as a recognized and powerful player in community service properties,” says Jens Engwall, CEO of Hemfosa Fastigheter.
Those who have subscribed for ordinary shares without subscription rights will be allotted shares according to the principles outlined in the prospectus. Such subscribers who have been allotted shares without subscription rights are expected to be notified on May 16, 2016. Only those who are allotted ordinary shares will be notified.
Through the rights issue Hemfosa’s share capital increases by SEK 13,144,020.50 from SEK 71,220,103.50 to SEK 84,364,124 and the total number of ordinary shares increases by 26,288,041 from 131,440,208 to 157,728,249 when the rights issue is registered at the Swedish Companies Registration Office.
