NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, HONG KONG, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA, OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION OF THIS PRESS RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL, BE SUBJECT TO LEGAL RESTRICTIONS OR WOULD REQUIRE REGISTRATION OR OTHER MEASURES.
InCoax Networks AB (publ) (“InCoax” or the “Company”) today announces that the Company has completed a directed issue of SEK 38 million corresponding to 3,040,000 shares in the Company. The issue was announced on March 15, 2019 and received large interest from the investors.
The Board of Directors of InCoax has, based on the issue authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting on 17 May 2018, resolved on a directed issue of 3,040,000 new shares with deviation from the shareholder’s preferential rights at a subscription price of SEK 12.50 per share, which means that the Company will receive gross proceeds of SEK 38 million. The subscription price in the directed issue has been determined by the capitalisation process that was published on March 15, 2019 and entails a discount of approximately 2.6 percent against InCoax's closing price on March 15, 2019.
The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights are that the Company has a capital need and that a directed issue implies lower costs and a faster process, which together and with sufficient strength indicates that it is in the Company's and shareholders' interest to make an issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights. The directed issue was subscribed by Saugatuck Invest AB (2 000 000 shares), BLL Invest AB (400 000 shares), Norrlandspojkarna AB (400 000 shares), Wilhelm Risberg (160 000 shares) and Tramontane Invest AB (80 000 shares). The capital injection from the directed issue will be used for the upcoming broad commercialisation of the Company's solution In:xtnd™ and for working capital.
The directed issue entails a dilution of approximately 24.6 percent of the number of shares and votes in the Company. Through the directed issue, the number of outstanding shares and votes will increase by 3,040,000 from 9,321,442 to 12,361,442. The share capital will increase by SEK 760,000.00 from SEK 2,330,360.50 to SEK 3,090,360.50. The new shares will be admitted to trading on Nasdaq First North when the shares have been issued and registered. Payment for the newly issued shares shall be in cash no later than March 20, 2019. The Board of Directors is entitled to decide on an extension of the payment period.
As published on March 15, 2019, the Company also has engaged an advisor to investigate the possibility for the Company to take up debt financing of approximately SEK 30-50 million. The advisor is Västra Hamnen Corporate Finance AB. More information about a possible debt financing will be press released separately if and when the debt financing is received.
Augment Partners AB has acted financial advisor in connection with the directed issue.
