The Board of Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget i Norden AB (publ) (“SBB” or the “Company”) has, based on the authorization given by the annual general meeting held on 29 April 2019, decided on a directed new issue of 6,639,360 Class B common shares (“B-shares”) at a price corresponding to approximately SEK 29.9 per share. Syquant Capital has, on behalf of certain funds, (“Syquant Capital”) subscribed for all B-shares in the directed issue.
The issue is made due to that SBB has entered into an agreement with Syquant Capital to acquire a total of 8,736,000 common shares in Hemfosa Fastigheter AB (publ) (“Hemfosa”) (to a price not exceeding the price in the recently completed offer to the shareholders of Hemfosa). The newly issued B-shares constitute part of the agreed consideration and the subscription price corresponds to the volume-weighted average price of the share on 20 February 2020, the last trading day before entering into the agreement.
The directed share issue will result in an increase of the number of shares in SBB of 6,639,360 and an increase in the share capital by SEK 663,936. This entails an increase in the number of shares from 1,368,067,979 to 1,374,707,339 and an increase in the share capital from SEK 136,806,797.90 to SEK 137.470.733.90, corresponding to a dilution of approximately 0.5 percent of the outstanding number of shares and approximately 0.2 percent of the outstanding number of votes in the Company. After completion of the acquisition, SBB will control 98.3 percent of the shares and 98.9 percent of the votes in Hemfosa.
