The directed share issue has been fully subscribed by selected Swedish and international institutional investors. Through the directed new issue are added to the Company of approximately 488 MILLION before transaction costs.
The reason to deviate from the shareholders ‘ pre-emptive rights in a directed share issue is that on a time – and cost-effective way to enable a capital raising to reduce the CLX indebtedness and to finance further value-creating acquisitions to broaden the Company’s ownership base and increase the liquidity of the Company’s shares. Collectively and with sufficient strength, this indicates that it is in the Company’s and the shareholders ‘interest to do a new share issue with deviation from shareholders’ preferential rights.
Through the rights issue, the number of shares and votes in the Company will increase by 4 067 647 shares and votes, from 49 534 442 shares and votes to 53 602 089 shares and votes. The new share issue entails a dilution for the existing shareholders of approximately 8.2% based on the total number of shares of CLX at the time of the rights issue.
Handelsbanken Capital Markets is acting as Sole Lead Manager and Bookrunner in connection with the directed share issue.
