Calmark Sweden AB (publ) publishes information memorandum in view of rights issue
The Board of Directors of Calmark Sweden AB (publ) (“Calmark” or “the Company”) announces today that the information memorandum in view of the Company's previously announced rights issue (“the Rights Issue”) has been approved by Spotlight Stock Market. The information memorandum and other relevant information will be made available on the Company’s website, www.calmark.se, on Hagberg & Aneborn Fondkommission AB’s website, www.hagberganeborn, and on Spotlight Stock Market’s website, www.spotlightstockmarket.com.
The rights issue in brief
On 22 October 2021, the Board of Directors resolved, on the authority of the Annual General Meeting of 18 May 2021, to carry out a rights issue of not more than 4,611,064 B shares, entailing an increase of the share capital of up to SEK 461,106.40. Upon full subscription, the Company will receive approximately MSEK 24.9 in proceeds before issuance costs.
Those that were registered as shareholders in the Company on the record date, 5 November 2021, have a preferential right to subscribe for new B shares in proportion to their respective number of shares held on that date. One (1) existing share entitles the holder to one (1) subscription right and six (6) subscription rights entitle to subscription of 1 (1) newly issued B share. The subscription price amounts to SEK 5.40 per B share.
The Rights issue is covered by subscription commitments and guarantee undertakings corresponding to 53.6 percent and 26.4 percent of the full amount, respectively. In total, approximately 80 percent of the Rights Issue is hence covered by subscription commitments and guarantee undertakings.

About Calmark Sweden AB (publ)
Calmark is a medical technology company developing and selling a point-of-care (POC) analysis method with easier and faster diagnostics of medical conditions in newborns. The unique test platform consists of a portable instrument and test cassettes for various biomarkers. The first test, Neo-Bilirubin, was launched to the market in 2020. In the Western world, the introduction of POC diagnostics is resulting in huge savings and shorter care chains. In less developed healthcare systems, the product will offer a decision support which is currently lacking, since the access to hospital laboratories often is limited. Calmark aims to become the global leader in POC diagnostics for newborns and, in the long term, to offer all relevant tests for the first period of life. In addition to products for newborns, Calmark sells a POC test for assessment of COVID-19 disease severity. The B share is listed on the Spotlight Stock Market and is traded under the CALMA B ticker.
