Stockholm, September 15, 2021
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - The Board of Directors of BTS Group AB (publ) has today decided to implement a directed new issue of 20,036 B-shares, supported by the authorization given at the Annual General Meeting in May 2021. The share issue price has been set at 212 SEK. The issue has been directed to the former owner and founder of the American company Bates Communication Inc, which BTS acquired in 2021.
The issue price has been determined according to the acquisition agreement by a calculated volume weighted average price per trading day for the company's B-share on Nasdaq Stockholm during December 2020. The shares are issued now in line with the agreement.
The share issue relates to final settlement of SEK 4,247,632 of initial purchase according to the acquisition agreement. The reason for deviating from the shareholders' preferential right is to be able to settle the additional purchase amount in a timely and cost-effective manner.
The total number of issued shares before the issue was 19,318,292. After the issue there are 19,338,328 shares in total. BTS's share capital increases from 6,439,431 to SEK 6,446,109.
