Final terms and conditions for the Rights Issue
As of the record date of November 28, 2017, each existing share entitles the holder to one (1) subscription right. One (1) subscription right entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) new share (primary preferential right). Shares not subscribed for with primary preferential rights shall be offered to all shareholders for subscription (subsidiary preferential rights). Unless otherwise offered shares are sufficient for the subscription that is made with subsidiary preferential rights, the shares shall be distributed among the subscribers in proportion to the number of shares they previously owned and insofar as this cannot be done, by lottery.
The Rights Issue will increase Seamless share capital by a maximum of SEK 29,382,652.50 from the current SEK 29,382,652.50 to not more than SEK 58,765,305 by issuing no more than 58,765,305 new shares. Following the Rights Issue, the number of shares in Seamless will amount to no more than 117,530,610.
The subscription price amounts to SEK 1.80 per share. This corresponds to a premium of approximately 4 per cent in relation to the Seamless share relative to the theoretical price after separation of the subscription right (TERP), based on the closing price of November 20, 2017 at Nasdaq Stockholm. Brokerage fee is not applicable.
At full subscription, the Rights Issue will provide Seamless approximately SEK 106 million before issue costs.
