The Board of Directors of EPTI (INVAJO.ST) has decided to carry out a directed new issue of 6,971,357 million shares, at a subscription price of SEK 7.89 per share, which results in an issue payment of SEK 55 004 006 before transaction costs. The subscription price corresponds to a discount of approximately 0.25 percent against the volume-weighted average price (VWAP) for the Company’s shares on Nasdaq First North Growth Market on December 14, 2021. The decision was made with the support of the authorization from the Annual General Meeting on June 11, 2021.
“It is a sign of the strength and potential of EPTI that, during a time of unique broader market conditions, we can make an issue. Through this issue, we ensure increased ownership diversification and liquidity, as well as a stronger capital base for EPTI into 2022 and beyond, ” says Arli Mujkic, CEO of EPTI.
