Report from Cinnober’s Extraordinary General Meeting on 13 March 2017: approval of directed issue


Press release 13.3.2017

Cinnober Financial Technology AB (publ) held an extraordinary general meeting on Monday 13 March 2017 under the chairmanship of attorney at law Thomas Nygren. The meeting resolved to approve the Board’s resolution on a directed share issue to a selected number of institutional investors contacted in advance which was communicated through a press release on 23 February 2017.

Through the directed issue, 692,307 new shares will be issued in the company, entailing an increase of the share capital of SEK 692,307. The shares are issued at a subscription price of SEK 260. Accordingly, the company receives proceeds of approximately SEK 180 million before deduction of issue costs.

The reason for deviating from existing shareholders’ preferential rights is to broaden the company’s institutional shareholder base and to capitalize on the opportunity to swiftly secure funding on favourable terms for the development of its subsidiary operating with real-time clearing for banks.

For further information regarding the issue please refer to the press release published on 23 February 2017.
