Stockholm, Sweden, Oktober 21, 2019 – The annual general meeting of Hoylu AB (publ) ("Hoylu" or the "Company") resolved on May 16, 2019 to authorize the board of directors, with or without deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive right, on one or more occasions until the end of the next annual general meeting, to resolve to increase the Company's share capital through new issues of shares, warrants or convertibles loan notes to the extent permitted by the Articles of Association (the "Authorization"). The Authorization was registered by the Swedish Companies Registration Office (Sw. Bolagsverket) on July 26, 2019.
The Company announces today that the Board resolved on October 20, 2019 to carry out a directed issue of convertible loan notes and warrants on below terms and conditions and that the said directed issue is fully subscribed.
The main terms of the directed issue are shown below.
· The convertible loan amount to SEK 6,000,000 corresponding to 6,000,000 convertible loan notes (the “Convertibles”).
· The right to subscribe for Convertibles in the directed issue, with deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive right, is granted to the existing shareholders in the Company; Alden AS, Fougner Invest AS, Norse Partners AS and the non-current shareholder Torsen Tankers & Towers AS (the “Investors”).
· The convertible loan matures on October 1, 2020 and carries an annual interest rate of 5 per cent.
· The conversion price is set at SEK 4.00 per new share, which corresponds to approximately 118 per cent of the closing price for Hoylu’s share on Nasdaq Stockholm First North on October 18, 2019.
· For every SEK 4.00 Convertible subscribed, the Investors shall be issued two warrants each with a right to acquire one (1) share in Hoylu for price of SEK 6.00 (the “Warrant”). The right to exercise the Warrant expires October 1, 2020. The Convertibles and Warrant are collectively referred to as “Units”.
· A maximum of 4,500,000 shares will be issued in relation to the directed issue due to conversion of the Convertibles and the exercise of the Warrants.
· The reason for the directed issue of Units and the deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive right, is to increase the Company's working capital for continued growth and a direct issue is significantly faster and less expensive compared to a rights issue. The Board's assessment is that a directed issue of Units under the circumstances is the Company's most favorable way to obtain financing. The Units issued in the directed issue will not be subject to trade.
