Dignitana complements the previously announced directed rights issue – decides on an additional directed rights issue
The Board of Directors of Dignitana AB (publ) has decided today, as a result of a large investor interest, to complement the previously announced directed rights issue by emitting 540,000 additional shares to an amount of approximately SEK 2.3M. In total this implies that the directed rights issues comprise a total of SEK 9.5M.
In a press release on 16 November 2018 it was announced that the Board of Directors had decided on a directed rights issue comprising in total 1,380,500 shares to a number of selected investors to the price SEK 4.20 per share corresponding to an amount of approximately SEK 5.8M, and a directed off-setting issue of up to 339,972 shares to the price SEK 4.20 corresponding to an amount of approximately SEK 1.4M. The Board of Directors has today, 3 December 2018, decided to issue 540,000 additional shares to the price SEK 4.20 per share to a total amount of approximately SEK 2.3M. The directed rights issues, including the directed rights issue decided on today, comprise in total 2,260,472 shares to the price SEK 4.20 in total the company will receive approximately SEK 9.5M before issue costs. Through the rights issue decided on today the share capital will increase with SEK 540,000.
The rights issue is fully subscribed by Green Park & Golf Ventures (GPG). The dilution effect for current shareholders in relation to the additional share issue will be approximately 1.1 percent, and for the three directed rights issues will be approximately 5.3 percent.
The reason for the issue, deviating from the shareholder’s preferential rights, is to give the Board of Directors the required flexibility to finance and enable the continued rapid expansion on the U.S. market as well as secure additional working capital. The Company’s existing shareholders are also given the opportunity to subscribe for shares in the preferential rights issue. The preferential rights issue comprises approximately SEK 24.3M to the price SEK 4.20 per share. The subscription period is 4 December 2018 to 18 December 2018.
Redeye AB (redeye.se) is financial advisor and Advokatfirman Delphi is legal advisor in the preferential rights issues, the directed rights issue and the directed off-setting issue. Aktieinvest is the Company's issuing agent in the issues.
