Aino Health AB (publ) ("Aino Health" or the "Company") has completed the Offer to the market to subscribe for shares in the Company for a total of 53.8 MSEK (the "Offer"), distributed on a share issue of 46.8 MSEK (the "Share Issue") and an Over-allotment of existing shares of 7.0 MSEK for stabilization activities (the "Over-allotment"). The Over-allotment including stabilization of the share price during 30 calendar days may imply that Aino Health will receive an addition of 7.0 MSEK through a share issue included in the Over-allotment option directed to Erik Penser Bank AB, after which the Company would receive up to 48.8 MSEK.
The Offer attracted strong interest and was subscribed to about 206 percent, equivalent to 2.1 times the Offer. Due to the strong interest shares have been allocated to around 1 100 new shareholders among almost 4 000 applicants. First day of trading Aino Health's shares is scheduled for Friday December 16, 2016.
November 27, 2016, the Board of Directors in Aino Health published the decision to apply for listing of the Company's shares on Nasdaq First North, and in connection with the listing the Board of Directors decided to diversify the ownership through a Share Issue according to the Offer. The Offer consists of 1,800,000 newly issued shares and an Over-allotment of 270,000 existing shares as a part of the stabilization of the share price during 30 calendar days. The Company may receive an addition of 270,000 shares through the Over-allotment option directed to Erik Penser Bank as a part of the agreed stabilization of the share price.
The number of shares will increase from 3,622,770 to 5,422,770 through the Share Issue and up to 5,692,770 shares if the Over-allotment is fully exercised. The dilution for existing shareholders amounts to 33.2 percent and to a maximum of 36.2 percent if the Over-allotment option is fully exercised.
The Offer implies that the Company will be added around 1 100 new shareholders, after which the total number of shareholders will amount to approximately 1 200. The Company will meet the share distribution requirements on Nasdaq First North and the first day of trading is scheduled for Friday December 16, 2016.
The subscription period for the Offer expired on Thursday, December 8, 2016. A number of institutional partners and private investors have, before the initiated subscription period, undertaken to subscribe for shares in the Share Issue corresponding to approximately 31.9 MSEK, or about 86 percent of the Share Issue.
The Board of Directors in Aino Health has, in consultation with Erik Penser Bank, decided on the allotment of shares in the Offer, in which the objective has been to achieve a good distribution of the share to enable a regular and liquid trading on Nasdaq First North as well as achieving a desired strategic ownership base. The allotment decision will be obtained in the form of a contract note. Information will not be sent to those who have not been allotted shares.
After the Offer has been registered at the Swedish Companies Registration Office the total number of shares in Aino Health will increase by 1,800,000 shares from 3,622,770 shares to 5,422,770 shares. The share capital will increase by 4,500,000 SEK to 13,556,925 SEK. If the Over-allotment option is fully exercised, this implies an additional increase of 270,000 shares and an increase of the share capital of 675,000 SEK to 14,231,925 SEK.
"We are very pleased with the great interest we have had in Aino Health's IPO. While we have secured capital for our expansion into Europe with focus on Sweden and Germany as the first countries, we have received a large number of new shareholders. We are very happy for this and the legitimacy that our listing gives in various customer contacts", says Jyrki Eklund, CEO of Aino Health
