Stockholm, Sweden, 22 September 2021 – Ranplan Group AB (publ) publishes convening notice for an extraordinary general meeting and proposes a Set-Off Issue whereby a major part of existing loans be converted into shares.
The board of directors of Ranplan Group AB, reg. no. 559152-5315, (the “Company”) publishes convening notice for extraordinary general meeting (‘EGM’) to be held on Monday 18 October 2021, at 4:30 pm, at Ranplan Group’s Office in Stockholm; Riddargatan 18. The board proposes that the EGM resolve on a Set-Off Issue whereby loans in the amount of SEK 23 780 000 be converted into 2 900 000 new shares. The conversion price at SEK 8.20 has been determined by the 30-Day volume-weighted average share price in the market between 9 August and 17 September 2021 after applying a discount of 1.5%. As this transaction involves a related party (the CEO), a valid resolution at the EGM requires that the proposal be supported by at least nine-tenths (9/10) of the votes cast and shares represented at the EGM.
The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to strengthen the balance sheet in a time and cost-efficient manner in order to enable continued expansion. The board of directors’ assessment is that the subscription price of the Set-Off Issue conforms to current market conditions.
Should the resolution be passed and the proposed transaction be carried out then, (i) the number of outstanding shares in Ranplan Group AB will increase by 10.5% from 27 538 242 (including the 3 400 000 new shares to be registered following completion of the directed issue, see press release of 21 September 2021) to 30 438 242, (ii) the share capital will increase by SEK 116 000.00 and (iii) the unused (undrawn) part of the credit line (up to SEK 50 million) will expand by the amount of the resultant debt reduction.
Per Lindberg, the CEO, has not participated in the decision by the Board of Directors in arriving at this proposal. He will not use his votes at the EGM.
