The Board of Directors of ÅAC Microtec Group AB ("AAC" or the "Company") has, subject to approval by a general meeting with the shareholders, and as indicated in the press release published on 21st December 2017, resolved to issue 6 535 948 new shares at the price of SEK 7,65 per share. The price was established through a so called "accelerated book-building" procedure led by G&W Capital ("G&W"). The new share issue was directed to a limited number of Swedish professional investors.
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, WITHIN OR TO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, CANADA, SWITZERLAND, SOUTH AFRICA OR NEW ZEALAND OR IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE THE DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION OF THIS PRESS RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL
The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights was mainly to bring new shareholders into the Company and at the same time strengthen the Company's financial position.
The proceeds from the directed new issue are intended to finance accelerated expansion, nearby acquisition opportunities and development of AAC, its market and its products.
The directed new issue will result in gross proceeds to the Company of MSEK 50 (before transaction related costs). It is the board of directors' opinion that the transaction promotes AAC's possibilities to create further value for all shareholders. None of the investors are part of the board or management of the Company or otherwise closely related to the Company.
The subscription price of SEK 7,65 for the new shares implies a discount of 8,9 percent based on the volume weighted average price of AAC's shares on Nasdaq First North during the ten (10) trading days up to and including the date of the signing of the share purchase agreement (i.e. the day of this announcement). The subscription price for the share is based on the accelerated book-building procedure led by G&W on 21st December 2017 and AAC has thereby ensured that the subscription price corresponds to fair market standards.
The new shares will be admitted to trading on Nasdaq First North following approval by the general meeting of the shareholders, payment and registration.
The Company today has a share capital of SEK 1,268,394 divided between a total number of 31,709,850 shares. The new share issue will entail a dilution for the current shareholders of approximately 17 per cent calculated by dividing the number of new shares and votes with the total number of shares and votes in the Company after registration of the new shares.
G&W acts as Sole Lead Manager and Bookrunner in connection with the directed new issue. Setterwalls Advokatbyrå acts as legal adviser to AAC.
