Summary of the background and rationale

The Company is at a stage where the sales, marketing and production of the organization are still under development. At present, the customer order backlog has not reached a sufficient level for the Company to be able to self-finance its working capital requirements.

The Board of Directors of Enersize believes that it is of great strategic importance to ensure good liquidity in the Company in order to be able to finance the commercialization phase and to lay a foundation for the Company's continued success. Working capital has been strained and in 2019 the Company financed parts of the business through the raising of short-term liabilities and conversion of liabilities into shares.

Enersize intends to use the total net proceeds raised for the following purposes:

  • Repayment / set-off of current liabilities and project loans
  • Securing working capital
  • Strengthen the sales organization

The Rights Issue
On the basis of the Extraordinary General Meeting’s authorization, the Board has resolved on an issue of shares and warrants in accordance with the principal conditions below:

  • Enersize will grant all shareholders registered in Enersize's share register kept by Euroclear Finland Oy or Euroclear Sweden AB one (1) subscription right for each share held on the record date 26 September 2019. One (1) subscription right entitles the holder to subscribe for two (2) newly issued shares. When two (2) newly issued shares are subscribed, one (1) free of charge warrant of series 2/2019 is received. The subscription price is 0.65 SEK or 0.06 EUR per share.
  • The Rights Issue thus means an issue of a maximum of 72,403,016 new shares and 36,201,508 warrants. Upon full subscription in the Rights Issue, the Company will receive proceeds of approximately 47 MSEK, before issue costs.
  • Existing shareholders who choose not to participate in the Rights Issue, assuming that the Rights Issue is fully subscribed, will experience a dilution amounting to 67 per cent.
  • Subscription period for subscription of shares will be from 1 October 2019, and until 16 October 2019 in Sweden and until 18 October 2019 in Finland.
  • The subscription period for subscription of shares by exercising the warrants will be from 31 August 2020 to 11 September 2020.

The subscription price for subscription of shares by exercising the warrants corresponds to 70 per cent of the average volume weighted price paid for the Company’s shares according to Nasdaq First North Growth Markets official list during the period from 13 August 2020 up and until 27 August 2019. The subscription period for subscription of shares by exercising the warrants will be from 31 August 2020 to 11 September 2020. The subscription price may not be lower than 0.65 SEK (0.06 EUR) or higher than 1.30 SEK (0.12 EUR), which means that the Company can receive a minimum of approximately 24 MSEK and a maximum of approximately 47 MSEK upon full exercise of the warrants.
