GJEB: Proposed capital issue
The Board of Gjensidige Bank ASA has today 3 May 2017 decided to summon an Extraordinary General Meeting with a proposal to increase the share capital by NOK 195,000,000 through a private placing towards the parent company Gjensidige Bank Holding AS. Of the NOK 195,000,000 capital issue, NOK 876,000 would be share capital and NOK 194,124,000 would be allocated to share premium.
If the proposed capital issue is adopted by the Extraordinary General Meeting, article 3 in the Articles of Association will, as a consequence, be changed to:
“The Company's share capital is NOK 978,492,000 divided into 876,000 shares, each with par value NOK 1,117. The shares shall be registered in a securities register.”
The Board also decided to prepare for issuing Tier 1 and Tier 2 capital, based on authorities given by the Annual General Meeting. A transaction may follow, subject to FSA approval and market conditions.
This information is subject to disclosure under Oslo Stock Exchange's ABM rules.
