Calmark publishes information memorandum in connection with fully guaranteed rights issue
Calmark Sweden AB (publ) (“Calmark” or “the Company”) is presenting an information memorandum today, on the occasion of the rights issue of units that Calmark’s extraordinary general meeting on 6 November 2019 resolved to conduct in accordance with the Board of Directors’s proposal (“the Rights issue”). If the Rights issue is fully subscribed, the Company is initially provided approximately MSEK 24.3 before issuance costs. On full exercise of all associated subscription warrants, the Company will receive between MSEK 10.3 and MSEK 16.2 additionally, before issuance costs. The Rights issue is guaranteed through subscription commitments (68 percent, of which 50 percentage points are subscriptions with the support of unit rights and 18 percentage points are subscriptions without unit rights) and guarantee commitments (32 percent), in total corresponding to 100 percent of the initial issue amount.

The information memorandum and application form for subscription with or without pre-emption rights have now been published on the websites of Calmark (www.calmark.se) and Hagberg & Aneborn Fondkommission AB (www.hagberganeborn.se), respectively.
The Rights issue in brief

- Each subscription warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one B share, at a subscription price calculated as 75 percent of the volume-weighted average price during the period 12 October 2020 up to and including 23 October 2020, but not less than SEK 4.20 or more than SEK 6.60. Subscription for B shares with warrants will be possible during the period between 4 December 2020 and 16 December 2020 inclusive.

About Calmark Sweden AB (publ)
Calmark is a medical technology company developing a point-of-care (POC) analysis method with easier and faster sampling of medical conditions in newborns. The unique test platform, which consists of a reader and single-use products, is expected to be ready for launch in 2020 when three important POC tests are introduced. The WHO estimates that 1.5 billion children will be born worldwide by 2030. In the Western world, the introduction of POC diagnostics is resulting in huge savings and shorter healthcare chains. In less developed healthcare systems, the product helps save lives. Calmark aims to become the global leader and ultimately to offer all relevant POC tests for the newborn's first period of life, wherever they are born. The B share is listed on the Spotlight Stock Market and is traded under the CALMA B ticker. Read more about Calmark at www.calmark.se/eng/home.
