Copenhagen, October 21, 2020

Today, WindowMaster International A/S announces the result of the offering of shares in connection with the admission to trading of the Company’s shares on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark cf. Company Announcement no.1 2020 of October 6, 2020 and the Company Description published on October 6, 2020.

As planned, the offer period was concluded on October 19, 2020 11.59pm (CEST). The Company’s offer of shares in the range 4,702,495 - 5,662,188 at an offer price of 10.42 DKK per share was fully subscribed. The final number of shares offered in the period therefore amounts to 5,662,188. Hence, the gross proceeds from the offering amounts to DKK 58,999,999. The part of selling existing shares will be used to repay acquisition debt – thereby improving the financials of the Company. The gross proceeds from selling new shares will be invested in organic growth and acquisitions.

In addition to the 1,953,920 shares that were allocated to investors in the pre-subscription period, the Company received 3,653 orders for a total of  11,513,577  shares in connection with the public offering. In total, this amounts to an oversubscription of the total offering of 138%.

The first day of trading at Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark is expected to be October 27, 2020 under the ticker ‘WMA” under permanent ISIN: DK0061278355.

WindowMaster International’s CEO, Erik Boyter states about the offer period :“We are very pleased with the result of the offering and in particular we are overwhelmed by the interest and trust that investors have shown in our company. We are aware of our responsibility towards our new shareholders and we will be strongly focused on continuing building a positive equity story over time. The positive development will particularly be fueled by the global green agenda and not least our prioritizing of integrating sustainability into our global operations and the solutions we provide. We will not only invest the proceeds from the offering in organic growth but also look for acquisition targets to support and accelerate growth. It has been important to us that as many investors as possible receive an opportunity to become investors in WindowMaster International as this motivates the Danish investor culture – the wast majority of the subscribers have therefore been allocated 365 shares plus 23.16% of their additionally wished allocation.”

WindowMaster International’s Certified, Jesper Skaarup Vestergaard, Partner at Grant Thornton echoes Erik Boyter’s takeaway on the offer period: ”As a result WindowMaster International’s very strong fundamentals and the strong awareness that Grant Thornton, together with the management of WindowMaster International, have created in the Danish investment community, we envisage that the liquidity in the stock will be strong. It should be noted that WindowMaster International has a high level of free float shares and a high number of shareholders. This will most likely enable a transparent and market driven share price, where the future positive development of the business case will be reflected in the share price development (NASDAQ ticker: "WMA”). In other words, we believe that we with the work that has been performed have created the perfect launch ramp for both the company’s growth ambitions and for its current and future shareholders.”
