CEO Ola Holmlund comments:
“We’re in the final phase of a Phase III study and have several projects coming to the clinic over the next few years. The great interest in investing in our business matches the interest we have seen among partners and patients for our drug candidates. Supported by this successful share issue, we can increase the rate of development for our value-creating work,” says Lipidor’s CEO Ola Holmund.
Subscription and allotment
The issue of approximately SEK 25.2 million was subscribed at SEK 136 million, including a subscription commitment of SEK 18.2 million, which corresponds to a subscription rate of circa 540%. Through the share issue, the company adds circa 1,150 new shareholders. This means that 4,200,000 shares and 2,100,000 TO1 warrants will be issued. The company is thus provided with issue proceeds totaling SEK 25.2 million before deduction of issue costs, which are estimated at approximately SEK 2.5 million. The warrants may provide the Company an additional minimum SEK 18.9 million and maximum of SEK 25.2 million by November 2020.
