The shares are issued at a subscription price of SEK 2.60 per share, which corresponds to the subscription price for one share in the Rights Issue. Upon full subscription in the Overallotment Issue and following registration of the Overallotment Issue with the Swedish Companies Registration Office, the Company’s share capital will increase by SEK 97,358.25 to SEK 2,045,091 and the total number of shares will increase by 779,082 to 16,360,728.
The right to subscribe for shares in the Overallotment Issue belongs to subscribers in the Rights Issue, who subscribed for units through unit rights and who also subscribed for additional units which they were not allotted.
