76 percent committed when subscription of new shares in Ripasso Energy begins
As of today, it is possible to subscribe for shares in the Swedish cleantech company Ripasso Energy AB (publ). The issue is already secured to 76 percent by subscription commitments after major shareholders transferred subscription rights to an investors’ consortium on the term that the consortium subscribes for shares in the issue, which will add approx. MSEK 70.
On the 1 November, the board of directors of Ripasso Energy resolved upon an issue of no more than 18,347,312 to a subscription price of SEK 5 with preferential right for shareholders. The resolution means that the company receives MSEK 91.7 before issue costs, if the issue is fully subscribed. Approximately MSEK 70 is now comprised of subscription commitments (representing approximately 77 percent of the ceiling of the share issue) after Sven Sahle, AC Cleantech and Gunnar Larsson, major shareholders of the company, transferred subscription rights to an investors’ consortium who have undertaken to subscribe shares. The investors’ consortium has as previously communicated undertaken to subscribe for 63 percent of the issue, but the undertaking has now increased to 76 percent.
