NOT FOR RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, JAPAN OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL Immunicum AB (publ) Clarifies Information Regarding Directed Issue
As communicated earlier today the board of directors of Immunicum AB (publ) has decided to implement a directed issue of approximately SEK 178M and a Rights Issue of approximately SEK 173M. Both issues are subject to approval by the Extraordinary General Meeting on 8 November 2018.
The directed issue comprises of 20,915,588 shares issued at a price of SEK 8.50 per share. The issue has been subscribed by, essentially, a number of institutional investors including the Fourth AP-fund (SEK 38M), Gladiator, (SEK 32M), the Second AP-fund (SEK 21M), Alfred Berg (SEK 20M), Nordic Cross (SEK 17M) and Adrigo (SEK 10M). In addition, a number of private investors have subscribed for the directed share issue including Rothesay (SEK 10M), Lennart Sten through company (SEK 7.5M), EWS Stiftelsen (SEK 3M) and JESEM AS (SEK 1M). Furthermore, a number of private investors have subscribed for SEK 18M through Avanza Pension.
The reason for deviating from the shareholders' pre-emption rights is that the board finds it beneficial for Immunicum's future development to strengthen the ownership base with a number of strategical and long-term shareholders, as well as taking advantage of the opportunity to provide the company with additional capital on favorable terms.
The newly issued shares in the directed issue are expected to be admitted to trading on Nasdaq Stockholm at the same time as the shares from the Rights Issue. The shares subscribed for and issued in the directed issue does therefore not qualify for participation in the Rights Issue. For more information, please contact:
