ExpreS2ion conducts a directed share issue to accelerate the development of the company

ExpreS2ion Biotech Holding AB (“ExpreS2ion”) today announces that the Company is conducting a directed share issue to a number of existing shareholders and strategic investors of initially approx. SEK 8 million, with attached consideration-free warrants, which in later stages can provide the Company with a further approx. SEK 9.6 million. The directed share issue is conducted in order to finance an accelerated pace of operations and increased investments in the business to ensure long-term good development. The motive to deviate from the shareholders' preferential rights is that considers it beneficial for the Company and the shareholders to strengthen the owner base partly by broadening the base of major shareholders, and partly by enabling share ownership for new strategic investors with special interest in the Company, and to avail of the opportunity to add new working capital to conditions attractive to the Company (especially the time and cost aspect of the implementation of the capitalisation). Through the directed share issue, the Company is supplied with working capital in order to work towards set goals, in a cost and time-efficient manner and thereby strengthen the Company's financial position. The above aspects as well as the prevailing market conditions have resulted in the conclusion that, according to the Board's opinion, there have been predominant reasons for deviating from the shareholders' preferential rights to the benefit of the Company and the shareholders in the long term. The directed share issue is subject to approval by an Extraordinary General Meeting, which is planned to be held on March 19, 2019. Notice to Extraordinary General Meeting is scheduled to be published shortly.
