Today Rejlers announces that the Board of Directors, with the authorization of
the Annual General Meeting from May 2nd 2013, has decided to issue a total of
900,000 new shares of Class B in Rejlers, with deviation from the shareholders'
preferential rights, to funds managed by Nordea Fonder AB. The issue has been
subscribed by Nordea Fonder AB.
The shares will be issued to a price of 94.50 Swedish Crowns per share, which
means that the company will be provided with approximately 85 million Swedish
Crowns before issue costs. The issue price gives a discount of 0.6 % compared to
the volume weighted average price for Rejlers B shares during the period
February 5, 2014 to February 18, 2014.
The reason for deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights is that the
Board considers it to be beneficial for the company and shareholders to
safeguard the possibility that, at for the company attractive terms, bring new
capital and enable refinancing of prior acquisitions and future acquisitions.
The Board believes all together that the targeted new share issue will help to
create value for all shareholders.
“This is a good way for us to continue to develop our company. A strong
financial position is a presumption for success”, says Peter Rejler, Chairman of
the Board at Rejlers.
Through the new share issue the shares in Rejlers will increase by 900,000 from
11,421,721 to 12,321,721 divided on 1,251,250 shares of Class A and 11,070,471
shares of Class B. The total number of votes will increase with 900,000 from
22,682,971 votes to 23,582,971 votes. Through the new share issue the share
capital increases by SEK 1.8 million to 24,643,442 SEK. The new share issues
correspond approximately 7.3 per cent of the share capital and approximately 3.8
per cent of the shares in the company after the new share issue. Payment of the
subscribed shares shall be made not later than February 25, 2014. The Board is
entitled to decide on extension of the payment period.
