In accordance with the terms of the subscription underwriting commitments, the Company shall give to those parties who have provided subscription underwriting commitments an underwriting commitment fee corresponding to 4% of the aggregate amount of the subscription underwriting commitment by issuing up to 4,205,236 new shares of the Company (“New Shares”) to those parties without consideration. The total amount of the underwriting commitment fee payable to each such party in shares of the Company is equal to the amount of the fee based on the above-mentioned respective subscription underwriting commitment divided by the subscription price of the Share Issue i.e. EUR 0,03. The Company is entitled to reimburse the possible remainder of the underwriting commitment fee in cash to the commitment provider.
Pursuant to the share issue authorization of 5,000,000 shares provided for the Board of Directors by the extraordinary general meeting on 1 March 2021 and based on the above-mentioned subscription underwriting commitments, the Board of Directors of the Company has today decided to issue, in a directed share issue, in total 4,205,236 New Shares of the Company without consideration in accordance with section 17 chapter 9 of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act as follows:
Shares received by
Haapaniemi Ossi Antero
Haapaniemi Ossi Antero
Haapaniemi Ossi / Kalksten Finance Oy
Haapaniemi Ossi / Kalksten Properties Koy
Kyösti Kakkonen / Joensuun Kauppa ja Kone Oy
Kyösti Kakkonen / K22 Finance Oy
Kyösti Kakkonen / Kakkonen Kari Heikki Ilmari
Kyösti Kakkonen / Bocap Investment Oy
Leena Niemistö / Kaikarhenni Oy
As the subscription underwriting commitments have been material to the successful outcome of the Share Issue, and taking into account the particularly material significance of the Share Issue to financing of the company’s business and for overall continuation of its operations, the Board of Directors considers that there is a particularly weighty financial reason for the directed share issue without consideration both from the point of view of the Company as well as the interests of all its shareholders.
The New Shares issued represent approximately 0.6 per cent of all the shares in the Company after the registration, including also the Offer Shares subscribed in the Company's subscription rights issue which are expected to be registered within the Trade Register on 12 April 2021.
The New Shares are expected to be registered with the Finnish Trade Register on or about 12 April 2021 and are expected to be listed on First North Finland on or about 13 April 2021 and First North Sweden on or about 14 April 2021. After the New Shares have been registered with the Finnish Trade Register (considering also Offer Shares subscribed in the Company's subscription rights issue which are also expected to be registered with the Trade Register on 12 April 2021), the total number of registered shares in the Company will be 663 639 370.
