The board of directors’ of Seamless has resolved on a directed issue of convertible debentures
The board of directors’ of Seamless Distribution AB (publ) (“Seamless”) has, pursuant to to an authorisation granted by the latest annual general meeting, resolved on a directed issue of convertible debentures. The offering was fully subscribed, whereupon Seamless has issued convertible debentures of SEK 42 million to private and institutional investors who have been identified by Evli Bank Plc.
The convertible loan amounts to a nominal value of SEK 42 million and carries interest at an annual rate of seven (7) per cent which shall be paid every quarter. The convertible debentures have been subscribed at a value corresponding to 100 per cent of the nominal value and the conversion price has been set to SEK 9 based on a book building process to private and institutional investors completed in August 2016.
“This convertible refinances a previous convertible debentures that was not converted into shares”, says Peter Fredell, CEO of Seamless.
The issue has been implemented with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights and the right to subscribe for the convertible debentures was only granted to a limited number of private and institutional investors who have been identified through a book-building process, arranged by Evli Bank Plc. The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential right was that the company is in need of financing of operations and a directed issue of convertible debentures has been deemed to be the fastest and the most favourable way to obtain such financing for the company. The convertible loan will mature 364 days after the date of issue, unless conversion or distribution has occurred prior to this date. The issue brought
SEK 42 million to Seamless. The payment for the convertible debentures shall be made in cash in connection with the subscription, or such later date as the board of directors resolves.
The issue of convertible debentures will entail, upon full conversion, a dilution for the current shareholders of Seamless of approximately 7.36 per cent after full dilution.
