Carbiotix announced on December 7, 2023 that the board had decided on the Rights Issue, subject to the approval of the extraordinary general meeting. On January 10, 2024, the extraordinary general meeting decided to approve the board's decision.
The Company today announces that the Company has increased the guarantee from the previous total of approximately SEK 11.2 million to a total of approximately SEK 14.2 million SEK through a guarantee at the level from 60 percent to 76.2 percent. The guarantee has been provided by external investors. The total commitment through pre-subscription- and guarantee commitments in the Rights Issue therefore amounts to approximately SEK 14.2 million (corresponding to approximately 76.2 percent of the issue volume in the Rights Issue).
For issued guarantee commitments at the level from 60 percent to 76.2 percent, a guarantee commission of 17 percent of the guaranteed amount is paid in cash compensation, alternatively an optional compensation of 22 percent in the form of units (which are subscribed at the same price as units in the Rights Issue). For the previously known guarantee commitments, compensation of 15 percent of the guaranteed amount is paid in cash compensation, alternatively an optional compensation of 20 percent in the form of units (which are subscribed for at the same price as units in the Rights Issue).
No compensation is paid for the pre-subscription commitments. Pre-subscription commitments and guarantee commitments are not secured by advance transaction, bank guarantee or similar arrangements.
