Exercise of overallotment option and end of stabilisation period
Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ) (“Carnegie”), J.P. Morgan Securities plc, Goldman Sachs Bank Europe SE, BNP PARIBAS, Danske Bank A/S, Danmark, Sverige Filial, DNB Markets, a part of DNB Bank ASA, filial i Sverige, Nordea Bank Abp, filial i Sverige, Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) and Swedbank AB (publ) (together “Managers”) exercise the overallotment option in respect of 35,357,180 B-shares in (”Storskogen” or the “Company”). The stabilisation period ended on 4 November 2021 and no further stabilisation transactions will be carried out.
As announced in connection with the offering and the admission to trading of the Company’s B-shares on Nasdaq Stockholm, Carnegie has, as stabilisation manager, had the option to perform transactions which will result in the share price being sustained at a higher level than would otherwise be the case in the open market. Stabilisation transactions have been possible to be carried out on Nasdaq Stockholm, in the over-the-counter market or otherwise, at any time during the period starting on the date of commencement of trading in the B-shares on Nasdaq Stockholm and ending not later than 30 calendar days thereafter.
Carnegie has, however, had no obligation to carry out stabilising transactions and there has been no assurance that stabilising transactions would be undertaken. Further, stabilising transactions, if undertaken, could be discontinued at any time without prior notice. In no event could transactions be carried out at levels above the offering price (i.e. SEK 38.50 per share).
Carnegie has notified that stabilisation measures have been undertaken in respect of 16,848,061 B-shares in accordance with article 5(4) in the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014. All transactions during the stabilisation period have been carried out on Nasdaq Stockholm. The stabilisation period regarding the offering has now ended and no further stabilising transactions will be effected. Below is a summary of the stabilisation transactions which have been undertaken during the stabilisation period. The contact person at Carnegie is Johan Flintull (phone no: +46 8 5886 8842).
In connection with the offering the Company granted the Managers with a so-called overallotment option which has entitled the Managers, no later than 30 days from the first date of trading in the Company’s B-shares on Nasdaq Stockholm, to acquire up to 52,205,241 additional newly issued B-shares, corresponding to a maximum of approximately 15 per cent of the number of B-shares in the offering, at the offering price (i.e. SEK 38.50 per share) to cover any overallotments or short positions in connection with the offering. The Managers have today notified that the overallotment option has been exercised in respect of 35,357,180 B-shares. In order to facilitate the overallotment option, Storskogen has previously issued 52,205,241 B-shares to Carnegie, and since the overallotment option is exercised in respect of 35,357,180 B-shares, Carnegie will transfer back 16,848,061 B-shares to the Company without any consideration. These 16,848,061 B-shares will be held by the Company and the board of directors of the Company intend to propose to the next general meeting in the Company to redeem these shares.
