NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, HONG KONG, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA, OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION OF THIS PRESS RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL, BE SUBJECT TO LEGAL RESTRICTIONS OR WOULD REQUIRE REGISTRATION OR OTHER MEASURES.

The Board of Directors of Aino Health AB (publ) (“Aino Health” or the “Company”) has, subject to approval at the Extraordinary General Meeting on 9 September 2020, decided to carry out a rights issue of a maximum of 10,623,319 shares (the “Rights issue”). The subscription price per share is SEK 1.50, whereby Aino Health upon full subscription in the Rights issue receives approximately SEK 15.9 million before issue costs. For every (1) existing share on the record date on 16 September 2020, two (2) subscription rights are received and three (3) subscription rights entitle the holder to subscribe for one (1) new share. The subscription period is between 18 September – 2 October 2020. The Rights issue is fully secured through underwriting commitments from the existing shareholders Filip Engelbert and Jonas Nordlander. No underwriting compensation is paid for the underwriting commitments. The proceeds from the Rights issue will be used for working capital to execute according to the current growth plan. The Rights issue is conditional on the Extraordinary General Meeting resolving to reduce the Company's share capital by SEK 15,934,979.00 without the withdrawal of shares and that the limits for the number of shares and share capital in the Articles of Association are changed. This reduces the Company's share capital to SEK 23,902,468.50 and the share's quota value to SEK 1.50. Notice to the Extraordinary General Meeting will be issued through a separate press release.

  • The record date for the Rights issue is planned to be 16 September 2020 with the last day of trading including the Subscription rights on 14 September 2020 and the first day of trading excluding the Subscription rights on 15 September 2020.
  • The subscription price is SEK 1.50 per share. The subscription period for the Rights issue (the "Subscription period") is expected to commence on 18 September and it is expected to end on 2 October 2020.

Reasons for the Rights issue and use of proceeds

Aino Health develops and markets IT-based and scalable tools for preventive management of employee absence. The target groups are municipalities, organizations and company managements with a need to increase health awareness in their organizations.

The Company's products and services are based on Software as a Service, a cloud service that offers software and system support for Health Management. The technology is globally applicable with an increasing aim towards a more sustainable health policy. The Company's products and services contribute, among other things, to strengthening companies' competitiveness by offering solutions for managing the employees' health, well-being and employee engagement, as well as reducing absence related costs.

Aino Health is in an expansion phase and the goal is to confirm the Company's position in existing markets and to establish and develop operations in the Nordic region and the rest of Europe. However, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has affected the Company in a slowdown in sales to new potential customers. As part of reducing its expenses, the Company has, as previously communicated, taken a government-guaranteed loan of approximately SEK 2 million, deferred payments of taxes, VAT, employer contributions and used the opportunity for part-time layoffs via Tillväxtverket. In addition, Aino Health has worked hard over the past quarter to achieve a controlled cash flow. Through a reorganization, the Company has scaled down some of the overhead costs by, among other things, reducing the workforce and the Company will also reduce the monthly salaries of the CEO and CFO by 40 percent between October 2020 and the end of December 2021. The reduced workforce has enabled Aino Health to now have a more fast-paced organization that will focus on continued growth and to provide the market with the best possible SaaS solution in the segment.

In order to secure working capital for the upcoming twelve-month period, to be able to execute according to the proposed growth plan, the Board has decided on the Rights issue, which will give the approximately SEK 15.9 million if fully subscribed.
