Exercise of the overallotment option
Pareto Securities has notified Sedana Medical AB (publ) (”Sedana Medical” or the ”Company”), that the overallotment option has been exercised in full.
Press Release July 7, 2017
NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, HONG KONG, JAPAN, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA, SOUTH KOREA OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE SUCH RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL OR WOULD REQUIRE REGISTRATION OR ANY OTHER MEASURES. PLEASE REFER TO IMPORTANT INFORMATION AT THE END OF THE PRESS RELEASE.
In connection with the initial public offering and listing of the Company’s shares on Nasdaq First North June 21, 2017, the Company committed to issue an additional 769 230 new shares to cover overallotments of shares in connection with the offering.
Pareto Securities, acting as stabilization manager on behalf of the Company in the offering, has today exercised the overallotment option in full. The Company will therefore receive an additional SEK 15 million, which means that the Company will receive total proceeds of SEK 115 million before deduction of transaction costs.
No stabilization transactions have been carried out since the listing, and due to the Company’s share price performance, Pareto Securities has decided to end the stabilization period.
If the demand for shares is large, the overallotment option makes it possible for the Company to issue more shares than the original offer. In this particular case, the overallotment option meant that the Company, in line with what is stated the prospectus published June 7, 2017, issued an additional 769 230 new shares.
The overallotment option was issued to make price stabilization practically possible during the first 30 days following the listing of Sedana Medical's shares. Since the price development of the Company's share has been strong and traded with a good margin to the subscription price, no price stabilization has been required and Pareto Securities has today decided to end the stabilization period.
