Lifecare ASA: Final results of the Rights Issue and resolution to increase the share capital for settlement of the underwriting commission


Reference is made to the previous stock exchange announcements published by Lifecare ASA (“Lifecare” or the “Company“) regarding the partially underwritten rights issue of between 49,199,128 and 59,038,955 new shares in the Company (the “Offer Shares“) at a subscription price of NOK 1.52442 per Offer Share (the “Subscription Price“), raising gross proceeds between NOK 75 million and NOK 90 million (the “Rights Issue“). The subscribers in the Rights Issue will be allocated one warrant for every two Offer Shares allocated to, and paid, by them in the Rights Issue (the “Warrants“). The subscription period for the Rights Issue (the “Subscription Period“) expired at 16:30 hours (CEST) yesterday, 13 June 2024.

At the expiry of the Subscription Period, the Company had received valid subscriptions for a total of 83,313,359 Offer Shares.

Allocation of the Offer Shares and Warrants has been completed in accordance with the allocation criteria set out in the prospectus for the Rights Issue dated 28 May 2024 (the “Prospectus“). The board of directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors“) has allocated a total of 59,038,955 Offer Shares. Based on the number of Offer Shares allocated, the Company has allocated 29,519,478 Warrants, subject to payment of the relevant Offer Shares.

As the Rights Issue attracted subscriptions above the underwritten amounts, no allocations have been made based on the underwriting commitments for the Rights Issue.

The subscriptions received will, subject to payment, provide the Company with approximately NOK 90 million in gross proceeds.

Subject to the Warrants and the Additional Warrants (as defined below) being exercised at the maximum subscription price of NOK 1.98174 (the subscription price in the Rights Issue plus 30%), the Company may in total receive proceeds of up to approximately NOK 108 million.

Notifications of allocated Offer Shares and Warrants and the corresponding subscription amount to be paid by each subscriber are expected to be distributed today, 14 June 2024. The payment for the Offer Shares allocated to a subscriber falls due on 18 June 2024 in accordance with the payment procedures described in the Prospectus. The Warrants are allocated free of charge.

The Offer Shares are expected to be tradable on Euronext Growth Oslo from and including 20 June 2024. The Company will use reasonable efforts to seek to ensure that the Warrants are admitted to trading on a relevant trading venue as soon as possible following completion of the Rights Issue but there can be no assurance that such admittance to trading will be obtained.

Pursuant to the underwriting agreements for the Rights Issue dated 25 April 2024, each underwriter is entitled to an underwriting fee as compensation for their respective underwriting obligation.

Munkekullen 5 Förvaltning AB and Buntel AB, having underwritten a total of NOK 50 million of the Rights Issue (the “Top Guarantee“), are entitled to compensation of an aggregate of 25,000,000 warrants at equal terms to the Warrants issued in the Rights Issue (the “Additional Warrants“) that will be issued in accordance with the resolution made by the extraordinary general meeting of the Company held on 16 May 2024.

Teigland Eiendom AS, Lacal AS, Tjelta AS, and Hannibal Invest AS, having underwritten a total of NOK 25 million of the Rights Issue (the “Bottom Guarantee“), are entitled to compensation of 10% of their underwritten amount under the Bottom Guarantee, which they may elect to receive in cash or in kind (or in a combination thereof) through receiving new shares in the Company at the subscription price in the Rights Issue. If such new shares are issued, a separate stock exchange notice will be published regarding this.

The Offer Shares may not be transferred or traded before they have been fully paid and the share capital increases pertaining to the Offer Shares has been registered with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises (Nw. Foretaksregisteret). Neither the Warrants nor the Additional Warrants may be transferred or traded before they have been registered in the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises (Nw. Foretaksregisteret). It is expected that the share capital increase pertaining to the Offer Shares, as well as the issuance of the Warrants, will be registered in the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises on or about 20 June 2024, and that the Offer Shares and the Warrants will be delivered to the VPS accounts of the subscribers to whom they are allocated on or about the next day.
