Stockholm, 28 June 2021 – Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget i Norden AB (publ) (“SBB” or the “Offeror”) announces the results of the invitation (the "Invitation") to holders (the “Noteholders”) to exercise their Noteholder Voluntary Conversion Right as defined in, and in accordance with the terms and conditions (the “Conditions”) of the Notes, in respect of any or all of their SEK 2.75 billion 7.00 per cent. Subordinated Mandatory Convertible Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”) issued by the Offeror and mandatorily convertible into series B registered shares of the Offeror (the “B Shares”).
The Invitation commenced on 21 June 2021 and expired at 4.00 p.m. (CEST) on 24 June 2021 (the “Expiration Deadline”).
As at the Expiration Deadline, SEK 2,672,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes (representing c.97.2% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes originally issued and currently outstanding) had been validly submitted for conversion pursuant to the Invitation. The Offeror confirms that it will accept for conversion all Notes validly submitted for conversion pursuant to the Invitation.
Any Noteholder whose offer has been accepted for conversion by the Offeror, will be eligible to receive by way of consideration (a) B Shares comprising the relevant Noteholder's entitlement under the Conditions as a result of the exercise of Noteholder Voluntary Conversion Right, and (b) a cash sum equal to SEK 206,500 per SEK 1,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes (20.65% of the principal amount of the Notes) (the “Invitation Premium”). For the avoidance of doubt, in accordance with limb (c) of Condition 5.3, interest will cease to accrue on the relevant Notes from (and including) 24 January 2021 (being the Interest Payment Date falling on or immediately preceding the relevant Scheduled Settlement Date) and as such no additional payment will be made in respect of the accrued interest.
SBB may consider accepting bilateral voluntary early conversions of the remaining Notes on terms that are substantially similar to the terms of the Invitation.
