Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ) (”Carnegie”) has today notified Ovzon AB (publ) (”Ovzon” or the “Company”) that the over-allotment option has been exercised in full and that the stabilisation period has ended. By reason of this, the Company’s board of directors has resolved on a directed share issue by power of authorisation.
In connection with the listing of Ovzon’s shares on Nasdaq First North Premier (the ”Offering”), Ovzon has issued an option to Carnegie to acquire an additional maximum of 696,428 shares from the Company at the price in the Offering to cover over-allotment of shares in the Offering.
Carnegie has today, in its capacity of stabilising agent in the Offering, exercised the over-allotment option in full. By reason of this, Ovzon’s board of directors has today resolved to issue 696,428 shares to Carnegie in a directed share issue, by power of authorisation.
The Company will thereby receive additional proceeds of approximately SEK 49 million, which means that the Company has received approximately SEK 238 million in total through the Offering, before issue costs. Following registration of the new shares issued as part of the over-allotment option, the number of shares and votes in the Company will amount to 8,396,399. The subscription price for the new shares is SEK 70 per share, corresponding to the subscription price in the Offering.
No stabilisation has occurred since the listing and by reason of the Company’s share price development Carnegie has decided to end the stabilisation period.
An over-allotment option entails that the Company, if the demand for its share is strong, may sell additional shares to those included in the initial offering. In this case, the over-allotment option resulted in the sale, by the Company, of an additional 696,428 shares, in line with what is stated in the IPO prospectus.
The over-allotment option was issued to enable stabilising measures during the first 30 days following the listing of the Company’s shares. As the share price development has been positive and stable, no stabilising measures have been required and Carnegie has today resolved to end the stabilisation period.
Terms for the directed share issue
Pursuant to the authority granted by the annual general meeting held on 25 April 2018, the board has resolved to carry out a directed share issue of 696,428 shares, entailing an increase in the share capital of SEK 69,642.8.
