DecideAct A/S [ACT], company announcement no. 8-2022:
This press release constitutes inside information that DecideAct A/S is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014. The information was sent for publication, through the agency of the contact persons set out below, at the time stated by the Company's news distributor, Cision, at the publication of this press release.
The transaction was triggered by an offer made by DecideAct's largest single shareholder, Jens Munch through his holding company, J. Munch Holding ApS to purchase a further 1,000,000 shares, corresponding to an investment of a further DKK 6,500,000.00 into DecideAct by way of a directed issue.
The transaction has been agreed upon at DKK 6.50 per share. This is 12.5% above the 10-day weighted average share price calculated ending Friday, August 12, 2022 (incl.) of DKK 5.78 per share. The Board has accepted the offer based upon the conclusion that a further financial strengthening of the company is valuable to all shareholders.
Before this investment, J. Munch Holding ApS owned 29.6% of the share capital of the Company. After the related capital increase, the ownership percentage will increase to 36.3%. Due to the transaction, the total number of issued shares and votes goes up by 1,000,000 shares from 9,540,539 to a new total of 10,540,539 shares/votes and the share capital goes up from 954,053.90 to 1,054,053,90 based upon the nominal value of 0.10 DKK/share, which corresponds to a dilution of 9.5% of non-participating shareholders.
The capital increase is executed by the Board of Directors by use of the existing authorization to perform directed issues in the Company's Articles of Association. By agreeing with an investor who knows the Company well, the transaction is performed without any major distraction to management.
CEO and Co-founder, Flemming Videriksen states: "The continued strong backing and support from our leading shareholder is highly appreciated. The extra capital adds financial resources to pursue our ambitious goals".
The new shares will be identical to the existing shares and an application will be made for them to be admitted to trading on Nasdaq First North Growth Market, Denmark under the existing ISIN DK0061414471 and ticker `ACT'. Gemstone Capital acted as Financial Adviser in this transaction.
