ProAct IT Group's new stock issue fully subscribed

ProAct IT Group's new stock issue fully subscribed During May and June, ProAct IT Group (publ) carried out a new stock issue with preferential rights for existing shareholders. The issue attracted a great deal of interest and has now been fully subscribed. The issue has been handled by Handelsbanken Investment Banking. The new stock issue with preferential rights for existing shareholders has now been fully subscribed, adding 1,501,218 shares in the company and generating revenue of SEK 82.6 million before issue costs. Each shareholder was entitled to subscribe for one new share for every five shares held at an issue price of SEK 55 per share. Following this issue, the total number of shares in the company is 9,007,312. The liquidity resulting from the issue will be used to finance ProAct's continued expansion and growth. ProAct wishes to be financially well prepared for continued expansion - both organic and via acquisitions. It is planned to use the issue liquidity for: ·Completion of complementary acquisitions within areas of interest that strengthen ProAct's position, where liquid funds may constitute the acquisition liquidity in part or in full. ·Organic expansion such as establishments in new places and in new geographical markets, as well as development of existing activities. ·New investments in development of advanced services. ·The continued rapid growth will require both investment and increased operating capital as a result of ProAct's extensive expansion and increases in turnover. "Taking into account the instability of the share market during the spring, it is very satisfying to see full backing for the issue intended to finance ProAct's future expansion and growth," says Henrik Holm, Chairman of the Board of ProAct. Option programme 2001 In accordance with the decision taken by the Annual General Meeting on 18 April 2001, ProAct has implemented a share option programme for new employees and key personnel within the ProAct Group in the Nordic region. The option premium amounts to 10:60 per option, and the issue price before translation was SEK 187. Following translation - due to the new stock issue - each option entitles the holder to subscribe for 1.08 shares at a price of SEK 173.07 per share. The programme is to run until 31 May 2004, with the subscription period running during May 2004. Interest was very high among the key personnel, while the other employees showed little interest. This is primarily attributable to the poor condition of the share market. Previously published option programmes For the share option programme 1999/2002, running until 30 June 2002, translation caused by the new stock issue has resulted in a new subscription price of SEK 54.80 per share, while the subscription price for the 2000/2002 option programme, running until 29 November 2002, has been set at SEK 152.30 per share. Both programmes entitle the holder of each option to subscribe for 1.08 shares after translation.
