24 October 2016
The Board of IVISYS AB (‘IVISYS’) has—pursuant to the authorization from the Extraordinary General Meeting convened on 14 October, 2016—decided to carry out a rights issuance with preferential rights for existing shareholders. Upon full subscription, the rights issuance will provide the company with approximately 6.5 million SEK before issuance costs.
IVISYS is in a period of rapid expansion. In only a year and a half, the Company has built a successful sales team, which operates across Northern and Eastern Europe. The team has managed to generate more than 40 potential projects, which in total would bring in more than 20 million SEK, about 10 potential projects are added to the pipeline each month. Simultaneously, IVISYS has managed to create a name for itself within the vision industry. The Company was selected as one of the top ten leading suppliers in the vision industry by the California-based magazine Manufacturing Tech Insights. The Company's technology was considered to be at the same high level as global industry players, who enjoy decades long track-records and have thousands of employees.
This upcoming issuance is aimed at ensuring the company’s need of capital, so that the company can continue to expand and initiate new sales activities in order to increase its market share at a fast pace, while at the same time maintaining the Company’s ability to handle a possible quick increase in confirmed orders.
