With reference to the share offering of 500,000 – 750,000 shares announced on 25 October 2017 (the “Offering”), Nixu Corporation (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it will issue 750,000 new shares in the Company (the "Offer Shares") to institutional investors. The Offering was conducted as an accelerated book-building process carried out by Carnegie Investment Bank AB. The Offering was completed at the earlier announced maximum amount and it was well oversubscribed.
The Board of Directors of the Company approved on 25 October 2017 the subscriptions for the Offer Shares. The Offer Shares were offered to a selected group of domestic and international institutional investors in deviation from the shareholders pre-emptive subscription rights. More than 60 per cent of the Offer Shares were allocated to international investors. The subscription price was set at EUR 13.00 per Offer Share, amounting to total proceeds of EUR 9.75 million before commissions and expenses. The subscription price is approximately 0.5 per cent lower than the volume-weighted average price per share for October 2017. The subscription price is 7.1 per cent lower than the closing price of EUR 14.00 on 25 October 2017. The subscription price of the Offer Shares will be recorded into the invested unrestricted equity reserve of the Company.
The 750,000 Offer Shares subscribed in the Offering correspond to approximately 11.6 per cent of all the shares and voting rights in the Company immediately prior to the Offering and approximately 10.4 per cent of all the shares following the Offering. Following the Offering, the number of issued and outstanding shares of the Company will be 7,241,198.
The interim shares representing the Offer Shares are expected to be entered into the book-entry accounts of investors on or about 30 October 2017. The interim shares will be combined with the Company’s existing shares after the registration of the Offer Shares with the Trade Register maintained by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office on or about 1 November 2017. The Offer Shares will entitle their holders to shareholder rights, including the right to receive full dividends declared by the Company, if any, after the Offer Shares have been registered in the Trade Register. The Offer Shares are new shares of the Company that are equivalent to the existing share class of the Company.
The Company intends to make as soon as practicably possible an application for the admission into trading of the Offer Shares on First North Finland marketplace operated by Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd (the "Helsinki Stock Exchange"). Public trading in the Offer Shares on the First North Finland marketplace is expected to commence on or about 1 November 2017, provided that the interim shares have been combined with the Company’s existing shares and that the Helsinki Stock Exchange approves the listing application in respect of the Offer Shares. The interim shares will not be applied to trading on the First North Finland marketplace.
In connection with the Offering, the Company has entered into a lock-up undertaking under which it has, subject to certain exceptions, agreed not to issue and/or sell any shares in the Company for a period ending 90 days after the closing of the Offering.
