Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement published by Hiddn Solutions ASA ("Hiddn" or the "Company") on 21 December 2018 regarding commitments from certain existing shareholders and new investors in the Company for a private placement of new shares in the Company raising NOK 20 million in gross proceeds (the "Private Placement").
The Company's board of directors has today resolved to carry out the Private Placement and resolved issuance of 23,845,226 new shares in the Company, each with a nominal value of NOK 0.34, at a subscription price of NOK 0.84 (the "New Shares"). The New Shares are issued by the board pursuant to an authorization granted by the Company's annual general meeting on 23 May 2018.
Following payment for the New Shares and registration of the new share capital pertaining to the Private Placement with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises, the Company will have an issued share capital of NOK 39,299,750.34, divided into 115,587,501 shares, each with a par value of NOK 0.34. Subject to publication of a listing prospectus approved by the Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway, scheduled to be approved on or about 29 March 2019, the New Shares will be issued in the VPS under the Company's ordinary ISIN, and be listed and tradable on the Oslo Stock Exchange following registration of the new share capital with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises.
The board of directors has further concluded that it will not be necessary to carry out a subsequent offering following the Private Placement having taking into consideration, inter alia, the trading prices of the Company's shares since announcement of the Private Placement in December 2018 and the limited size of a potential subsequent offering compared to the cost required for consummation.
