Dicot’s rights issue is heavily oversubscribed
The rights issue of units amounting to SEK 20.3 million which was made public on July 23, 2019 (the “Rights Issue”) in Dicot AB (publ) (”Dicot” or the "Company") has been heavily oversubscribed. The subscription period ended on September 17, 2019. The Rights Issue was subscribed with 244 percent, of which approximately 92 percent was subscribed with unit rights and approximately 152 percent was subscribed without unit rights. Hence, the underwriting commitments will not be used. Through the Rights Issue, the Company obtains approximately SEK 20,3 million before issue costs. In light of the oversubscription of the Rights Issue, and as previously communicated, Dicot’s Board of Directors now considers resolving on an overallotment issue.
The allotment of units subscribed for without unit rights has been made in accordance with the terms of the Rights Issue, which are stated in the investment memorandum. Notification of such allocation will be communicated separately by registered settlement note. Nominee registered shareholders will receive a notice of allocation in accordance with instructions from the respective trustees.
Through the Rights Issue, Dicot’s share capital will increase by SEK 973,852.88 through the issuance of 7,790,823 shares. Following the Rights Issue, and after registration of the Rights Issue with the Swedish Companies Registration Office, the Company’s share capital will amount to SEK 1,947,705.75 and the total number of shares in the Company will amount to 15,581,646 shares.
The warrants of series 2019/2020 that have been issued through the Rights Issue entitle the holder to subscribe for one (1) new share in Dicot during the subscription period from October 1, 2020 to October 15, 2020. The subscription price for shares using the warrants will correspond to 70 percent of the volume weighted average price of the Company's shares according to the Spotlight Stock Market official price list for the period from September 14, 2020 through September 25, 2020 but will not be less than SEK 2.60 or higher than SEK 5.20. The warrants are intended to be admitted for trading on Spotlight Stock Market after the Rights Issue has been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.
Furthermore, in light of the oversubscription of the Rights Issue, and as previously communicated, the Board of Directors of Dicot now considers resolving on an overallotment issue by utilizing the authorization from the annual general meeting held on May 16, 2019.
