STOCKHOLM, 9 June, 2022 09.00 CEST

Today, 9 June 2022, is the first day of the subscription period in FUUD AB (publ)’s ("Fuud" or the "Company") rights issue of units (the "Rights Issue") which was resolved on 20 May 2022.

Summary

  • Shareholders in Fuud have the preferential right to subscribe for four (4) new shares per every five (5) existing shares, i.e., a subscription ratio of 4:5.
  • Provided that the Rights Issue is fully subscribed, the Company will receive proceeds of initially approximately SEK 78.1 million before issue costs.
  • The subscription price in the Rights Issue is SEK 1.84 per unit, corresponding to SEK 0.23 per new share. The warrants are issued free of charge. Each unit consists of eight (8) shares and one (1) warrant of series TO 2.
  • Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) new share in the Company at an exercise price of SEK 0.38. Upon full exercise of all warrants, Fuud is thus estimated to receive an additional capital contribution of approximately SEK 16.1 million before issue costs.
  • The subscription period in the Rights Issue will run from and including 9 June until and including 23 June 2022.
  • The warrants will be exercisable for subscription of new shares during the period from and including 11 November until and including 25 November 2022.
  • Prior to the Rights Issue, the Company has received subscription commitments and has entered into agreements on guarantee commitments in the form of so-called bottom and top guarantees. The bottom guarantee ensures, provided that subscription takes place at least corresponding to the subscription commitments, that the Rights Issue is subscribed and paid for up to approximately 80.2 per cent of the Rights Issue. The top guarantee ensures that the Company receives issue proceeds of SEK 1.0 million, corresponding to 1.3 per cent of the Rights Issue.
