Arcam today announces that it has completed a private placement of 400,000 new
shares, providing the company with approximately SEK 348 million before
transaction costs.
This press release may not be announced, published or distributed, directly or
indirectly in the United States, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa,
Switzerland or Australia.

The private placement, which was announced on December 16, 2013, has allowed
Arcam to place 400,000 new shares with international institutional investors and
qualified investors in Sweden at a price of SEK 870 per share through an
accelerated book building procedure.

The proceeds from the private placement are intended to be used to finance and
facilitate accelerated expansion, nearby acquisition opportunities and a
development of the company, its market and its products.

For the purpose of the private placement, the Board of Directors of Arcam has
resolved, pursuant to the authorization given by the extraordinary general
meeting held on December 6, 2013, on a directed issue of 400,000 new shares. The
purposes of the resolution to issue new shares, deviating from the shareholders’
preferential rights, are primarily to broaden the long-term international
institutional ownership in Arcam, and to take advantage of an opportunity to
raise capital for the above-mentioned purposes on attractive terms, thereby
promoting Arcam’s ability to create further value for all shareholders.

Through the issue, the number of shares in Arcam increases by 400,000 from
4,185,408 to 4,585,408 and the share capital increases by SEK 1,600,000 from SEK
16,741,633.5 to SEK 18,341,633.5. The new issue results in an equity dilution of
approximately 8.7 percent after completed issue. A large existing shareholder
has undertaken to temporarily lend the number of shares required to facilitate
prompt delivery to the subscribers.

In addition to the directed share issue, the CEO of Arcam, Magnus René, has
divested 30,000 shares in the company, accounting for less than half of his
total holding. Magnus René has entered into a lock-up agreement with Carnegie
Investment Bank not to sell any further shares in the company over the coming 12
months.

The newly issued shares will be admitted to trading on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm and
the company expects to have a prospectus approved for this purpose on or around
January 8, 2014. Trading in the new shares is expected to start in close
connection thereto.

“We are delighted by the interest shown by institutional investors, both in
Sweden and internationally, and we welcome them on board as shareholders. The
transaction strengthens Arcam’s financial position and enables the company to
capitalize on the exciting opportunities arising as the market for 3D printing
grows. It also helps us to maintain the high tempo in our current expansion”,
says Magnus René, CEO of Arcam.
