Stockholm, Sweden, 21 September 2021 – The Board of Directors of Ranplan Group AB (publ) (’the Company’) has today, in accordance with its authorisation from the Annual General Meeting of 17 May 2021, decided to carry out a directed issue in the amount of SEK 27 880 000 before transaction costs by issuing 3 400 000 new shares at a subscription price of SEK 8.20 per share (’Directed Issue’).
Subscribers in the Directed Issue encompass three Nordic funds (St Petri Capital, Modelio Equity and a Family Fund) as well as two existing shareholders (Wilhelm Risberg and Fredrik Lundgren).
The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Directed Issue mainly for further investments in the Company’s growth.
’We appreciate the infusion of additional capital and welcome increased interest from a number of highly qualified investors’, said Per Lindberg, CEO of Ranplan Group AB.
The Directed Issue consists of 3 400 000 new shares at a subscription price of SEK 8.20, which means that the Company receives 27 880 000 before costs for the Directed Issue. The subscription price has been determined by the Company’s Board of Directors after negotiations with the subscribers. The subscription price at SEK 8.20 per share corresponds to a discount of 1.5% to the volume-weighted average price in the last 30 days of trading of SEK 8.32. According to the Board of Directors’ assessment, the subscription price of the Directed Issue conforms to current market conditions.
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.
Through the directed issue (i) the number of outstanding shares in Ranplan Group AB will increase by 14.1% from 24 138 242 to 27 538 242 and (ii) the share capital will increase by SEK 136 000 from SEK 965 529.68 to SEK 1 101 529.68. The Issue, in accordance with the authorisation from the Annual General Meeting of 17 May 2021, entails a dilution for existing shareholders of 12.4% with respect to the number of shares and votes in the Company.
