SolTech’s rights issue oversubscribed by 333 percent. Decision on over-allotment issue. The company will receive a total of SEK 100.2 million before issue costs.
SolTech Energy Sweden AB’s (publ) (“SolTech” or “the Company”) new share issue with preferential rights for the shareholders (the “Rights Issue”) has been completed. The rights issue was oversubscribed by 333 percent, which is why the Company has decided to carry out a directed over-allotment issue (the “Over-allotment issue”). The company is thus allocated a total of SEK 100.2 million before issue costs.
CEO Stefan Ölander in a comment:
– We are humbly grateful for the very large trust existing and new shareholders showed us in this new issue. Our goal was to reach SEK 100.2 million in issue volume and we received subscriptions corresponding to SEK 321 million. We are now filling the cash register with SEK 100.2 million and thus have the funds we need to continue our successful acquisition strategy.
Number of shares and over-allotment
6,775,816 shares were subscribed with the support of subscription rights, corresponding to approximately 91 percent of the Rights Issue, and 25,329,005 shares were subscribed for without the support of subscription rights, corresponding to approximately 341 percent of the Rights Issue. The rights issue is thus oversubscribed by 333 percent.
In order to allow allocation to those stakeholders who did not receive allotment in the Rights Issue and in order to broaden and strengthen the Company’s ownership base, the Board has decided, on the basis of authorization from the Annual General Meeting on May 28, 2018, to issue an additional 2.6 million shares at a subscription price if SEK 10 per share, corresponding to approximately SEK 26 million, on the terms stated in the prospectus regarding the Rights Issue.
Through the Rights Issue and the Over-allotment Issue, a total of 10,018,222 shares will be issued and the Company will thus receive approximately SEK 100.2 million before issue costs.
