The Board of Directors in Nyfosa has resolved to offer the holders of warrants, issued as part of Nyfosa’s warrant program 2019/2023 (“LTIP 2019”) (the “Warrants”), to repurchase such Warrants.
The Annual General Meeting 2019 resolved to adopt a long-term warrant program for employees in Nyfosa (LTIP 2019). In total, 1,950,000 Warrants were issued in one series that can be exercised to subscribe for shares under certain periods during the end of 2022 and the first half of 2023. As of today, the number of outstanding Warrants amounts to 1,259,300.
The Board of Directors has resolved that Nyfosa shall make an offer to repurchase all outstanding Warrants at market terms for a price of SEK 13.96 per Warrant, which is based on the market value of the Warrants as of today, 16 September 2022. If all holders of Warrants were to fully accept the offer, the consideration payable under the offer would amount to approximately SEK 17.6 million. The offer can be accepted during 16-19 September 2022 and participation in the offer is conditional upon that the participants invest the proceeds from the repurchase, net after taxes, in Nyfosa shares. The offer does not entail a change of the terms for the Warrants or LTIP 2019.
The reason for the offer is to facilitate for the warrant holders, which are employees (or retired employees) in Nyfosa, to realise the value of the Warrants and, considering the condition to reinvest a part of the proceeds, to increase their holdings in Nyfosa without having to finance the exercise price for the Warrants, for example by selling shares in Nyfosa.
The offer does not entail any additional tax costs nor any transaction fees for Nyfosa and it also simplifies the administration for the company. In addition, the repurchase of the Warrants decreases the dilutive effect of the Warrants on votes compared to if the Warrants had been exercised to subscribe for shares.
