Scandinavian Real Heart AB ("Realheart" or the "Company") announces that the Company's board of directors, based on the authorization from the annual general meeting on June 14, 2023, has resolved to issue 9 150 000 units to the European Innovation Council ("EIC") Accelerator, in accordance with the investment agreement announced on May 15, 2023. The directed issue consists of 9 150 000 units of the same type and on the same terms as the units in the rights issue announced on the same day and Realheart thus receives an additional SEK 14 640 000 before transaction costs. After the directed issue, the total number of shares will increase from 78 694 446 shares (after registration of the rights issue and the directed issue to underwriters) with 18 300 000 shares to a total of 96 994 446 shares. The EIC will then hold 18,9 of total shares and votes in the company.
The Company had received subscription commitments from EIC based on the following conditions:
- The investment is a co-investment with new and existing shareholders.
- That the investment corresponds to one third of the total capital raising, i.e. the rights issue and the directed issue combined, but that EIC's total ownership does not exceed 20 percent of the company after the investment has been completed.
Through the directed issue to EIC the Company's share capital increases by SEK 1 830 000.0 from SEK 7 869 444.60 after the rights issue and the directed issue to underwriters to SEK 9 699 444.60. Through the directed issue to EIC 9 150 000 warrants of series TO2 are also issued, which entitle the holder to subscribe for 4 575 000 shares in the Company. Upon full exercise of the Warrants, the share capital will increase by a maximum of SEK 457 500.0 and the number of shares will increase by a maximum of 4 575 000 shares.
Total increase in number of shares and share capital
In total the number of shares in Realheart after the rights issue, the directed issue to the underwriters and the directed issue to EIC (jointly the "Issues") increases by 62 015 198 shares from 34 979 248 shares to 96 994 446 shares, and the share capital increases by SEK 6 201 519.80 from SEK 3 497 924.8 to SEK 9 699 444.60. This gives a dilution effect of approximately 63.9 percent of the votes and capital in the Company.
Through the Issues, a total of 31 007 599 warrants of series TO2 are issued, which entitle the holders to subscribe for a maximum of 15 503 799 shares in the Company. Upon full exercise of the warrants, the share capital will increase by an additional maximum of SEK 1 550 379.90. This corresponds to a dilution effect from the Warrants of an additional maximum of approximately 13.8 percent of the votes and capital in the Company.
