Exercise of over-allotment option and end of the stabilisation period in MilDef

Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (”SEB”) exercises the over-allotment option regarding 449,939 shares in MilDef Group AB (”MilDef”). The stabilisation period has now ended and no further stabilisation transactions will be effected.

As announced in connection with, and in the prospectus in respect of, the offering to acquire shares in MilDef and the listing of the company’s shares on Nasdaq Stockholm (the ”Offering”), SEB has had, as Global Coordinator and Bookrunner, the right to carry out transactions aimed at supporting the market price of the shares at levels above those which might otherwise prevail in the open market.

Stabilisation transactions have been possible to undertake on Nasdaq Stockholm, in the over-the-counter market or otherwise, at any time from and including the first day of trading in MilDef’s shares on Nasdaq Stockholm, i.e. 4 June 2021, and no later than 30 calendar days thereafter. SEB has, however, not been obliged to undertake any stabilisation and there was no assurance that stabilisation would be undertaken. Undertaken stabilisation has been possible to discontinue at any time without prior notice. Transactions have, in no event, been executed at levels above the price set in the Offering, i.e. SEK 36.50 per share.

In order to cover possible over-allotments, MilDef undertook, at the request of SEB, to issue additional shares corresponding to a maximum of 10 percent of the number of shares in the Offering (before upsizing of the Offering) (the ”Over-Allotment Option”), equivalent to a maximum of 1,268,001 shares, at a price corresponding to the price in the Offering. The Over-Allotment Option could be exercised in full or in part for a period of 30 calendar days from the first day of trading in the shares on Nasdaq Stockholm. SEB has notified that the Over-Allotment Option with respect to 449,939 shares has been exercised. MilDef will thereby be provided with additionally approximately SEK 16.4 million, which means that MilDef has been provided with, approximately SEK 416.4 million in total as a result of the Offering, before transaction costs. Following registration of the new issued shares pursuant to the Over-Allotment Option, the number of shares and votes in MilDef will amount to 36,067,861. All shares in MilDef that SEB has borrowed from the selling shareholder Marianne Trolle with the purpose of covering the over-allotment in the Offering will be returned within short.

SEB has, in its capacity as stabilisation manager also notified that stabilisation measures have been undertaken, in accordance with article 5(4) in the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014, on Nasdaq Stockholm as specified below. The contact person at SEB is Roger Wiberg (tel: +46 (0)704 32 99 21).
