Realfiction Holding AB: To further accelerate its growth, Realfiction announces a Public Issue of 17,5 MSEK and calls an extra general meeting to decide on a Directed Issue of up to 7 MSEK
On March 21, 2019, the Board of Directors of Realfiction Holding AB (corporate ID no. 559110-4616, the “Company”) decided, pursuant to an authorization from the Annual General Meeting of June 18, 2018 to carry out a new issue of shares with a preferential right for existing shareholders, the “Public Issue”. The Public Issue consists of a maximum of 1 744 970 shares and can bring 17,5 MSEK into the Company if subscribed for in full. In addition to this preferential rights issue, the Board of Directors will make a proposition to the forthcoming extra general meeting to decide in favor of a parallel directed new share issue of up to 700 000 shares, which can bring up to 7 MSEK to the company for the purpose of converting existing loans owed and related interest to shares. The combined transactions of up to 24,5mSEK are secured up to 60% in total through pre-subscriptions from existing and new shareholders as well as loan conversion.
The proceeds from the planned Public Issue will be deployed to further accelerate the positive development of Realfiction, both commercially and in terms of technology development and will secure the ongoing operational cash-flow.
Clas Dyrholm, CEO of Realfiction comments: ”As can be seen in the annual report, that we released earlier today, we are seeing good progress, both in topline, margins and also in terms of operational cash-flows. By adding the funding from this new round, our business will be ready for further, significant acceleration in accordance with our previously announced STEP-UP-2019 strategy. This means being able to pursue our many opportunities in the international market with force, predominantly Maas for Retail and Rental. Also, we will be able to accelerate the ongoing investments in our very promising and ongoing technology Project Echo. Finally, by converting the outstanding loans, we strengthen our balance sheet significantly. I am proud and pleased about the significant interest that we have seen already for this public issue and look very much forward to many exciting meetings with our current well as new investors in the time to come”.

The company has access to subscription-rights free of charge corresponding to 25% of the Public Issue.
