The board of directors of Carbiotix AB ("Carbiotix" or the "Company") has today decided, with the support of authorization from the extraordinary general meeting, to carry out a directed issue of units, in accordance with the guarantee agreements entered into between the guarantors and the Company due to the preferential issue which was carried out during January 2024.
As previously communicated in connection with the rights issue, the bottom guarantors, in accordance with the guarantee agreements entered into, had the opportunity to choose to receive guarantee compensation in the form of cash compensation corresponding to 15 percent of the guaranteed amount, or units (shares and warrants of series TO 3) corresponding to 20 percent of the guaranteed amount. The guarantors at the level of 60 percent to 76.2 percent had, in accordance with entered into guarantee agreements, the opportunity to choose to receive guarantee compensation in the form of cash compensation corresponding to 17 percent of the guaranteed amount, or units (shares and warrants of series TO 3) corresponding to 22 percent of guaranteed amount A number of guarantors have chosen to receive the guarantee compensation in the form of units. Due to this, the board of directors, with the support of authorization from the extraordinary general meeting on January 10, 2024, has decided on a directed issue of units, corresponding to 17,264,952 shares and 5,754,984 warrants of series TO 3 in the Company. The purpose of the directed issue and the reason for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential right is thus to fulfill the Company's obligations towards the guarantors in accordance with the entered into guarantee agreements.
The subscription price is approximately SEK 0.90 per unit (equivalent to SEK 0.10 per share, TO 3 is issued free of charge), which corresponds to the subscription price at which units in the recently completed rights issue were issued.
After the Swedish Companies Registration Office's registration of the rights issue and the described directed issue to guarantors, the total number of shares in the Company will amount to 180,226,795 and the share capital to SEK 2,703,401.925 (after adjustment of the quota value). In addition, there will be 53,163,522 outstanding warrants of series TO 3.
