The issue involves a share dilution of approximately 10,6 percent.
The directed issue requires a decision by an Extra General Meeting, which will be summoned in a separate notice. Main owners representing approximately 46 percent of the total voting power of the Company are supporting the Board’s proposal.
The reason to deviate from the preferential right of the shareholders of the Company is to, through means of the directed issue of B-shares, broaden the long-term ownership of the Company with a few additional financially strong players. The reason is furthermore to, in a time- and cost efficient way with an appropriate level of certainty, make sure that the Company gets access to additional financing to further enable a forceful expansion and broadening of the Company’s existing activities related to Aventus NowCast and Wake Vortex. The Company’s possibilities for value growth are thereby improved for the benefit of all share owners.
