Calmark's rights issue massively oversubscribed, provides MSEK 24.3 in total
The Board of Directors of Calmark Sweden AB (publ) (“Calmark” or “the Company”) announces today the outcome of the issue of units with preferential rights for existing shareholders, which was resolved upon by the extraordinary general meeting on 6 November 2019. The rights issue has been subscribed to an amount of approximately MSEK 34.6, which corresponds to a subscription rate of approximately 142.4 percent. This provides the Company approximately MSEK 24.3 before issuance costs which amounts to approximately 2.7 MSEK. The new issue comprises 7,366,680 B shares and 2,455,560 Series TO 2 B subscription warrants.
The result of the rights issue shows that 551,650 units were subscribed with support of unit rights (corresponding to about 89.9 percent of the rights issue), and 322,697 units were subscribed without support of unit rights (corresponding to about 52.6 percent of the rights issue). Consequently, the rights issue is oversubscribed by approximately 42.4 percent. Due to the oversubscription, none of the guarantee undertakings have been utilized.
“The high subscription rate shows that the market has great faith in Calmark and our business model. We are proud of the confidence shown in us, but we are also humbled by our existing shareholders’ reaffirmation of their desire to accompany us on our journey, and by the fact that our new shareholders see the potential of the company's strategy,” says Anna Söderlund, CEO.
“This owner contribution gives us the means to realize our projected market launch of the initial three tests for jaundice, low blood sugar levels and asphyxia during 2020; in addition, the issue provides an opportunity to accelerate investments in production even further, to lower the manufacturing costs for the disposable items and increase gross margins considerably.”
Share capital and number of shares
The rights issue entails that the share capital increases by SEK 736,668.00, through a new issue of 7,366,680 B shares. When the issue has been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office, Calmark’s share capital will amount to SEK 2,025838.20, divided on 20,258,382 shares, each with a quota value of SEK 0.10.
