The board of directors of GWS Production AB (“GWS”) has, pursuant to the authorization from the extraordinary general meeting held on 27 June 2017, resolved to issue 1,580,000 new shares in GWS to Humle Småbolagsfond at a subscription price of SEK 3.29 per share.
ABG Sundal Collier has been financial adviser in connection with the new issue.
The subscription price for each new share was set to SEK 3.29 by the board of directors of GWS and corresponds to the volume-weighted average price (VWAP) during the period 8 November 2017 to 24 November 2017 for GWS’ share on Nasdaq First North. Compared to the closing price on 28 November 2017, the subscription price constitutes a discount of 4 percent. Through the investment, GWS raises approximately SEK 5.2 million before issue expenses.
The rationale for carrying out the new issue is to raise working capital.
The number of shares and votes in GWS will be increased with 1,580,000 from 14,365,407 to 15,945,407. The shares issued in the placement correspond to approximately 9.91 per cent of the share capital and votes in GWS. Payment of the shares issued shall occur no later than on 1st December 2017 and will be made in cash. The board of directors of GWS retains the right to extend the payment period at its discretion.
- This shows that the interest in our company is significant, including major investors, comments Andreas Rodman, CEO, GWS.
- The issue of shares gives us even greater power and ability to continue the successful development of the company and create long-term stability through the investment from professional financial institutes.
The reason for deviating from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to broaden the shareholder base, and with a directed share issue means lower costs and a faster process which altogether with sufficient strength indicates that it is in the Company’s and the shareholders’ interest that the issue is made with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights.
