Not for release, publication or distribution in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, in the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea or any other jurisdiction where such release, publication or distribution would be unlawful or would require registration or any other measures. Please refer to important information at the end of the press release.
Realfiction Holding AB (“Realfiction” or the “Company”) hereby announces that the Company has carried out a directed issue of 400,000 units (the “Directed Issue”). The investors in the Directed Issue consists of Tamarind Limited and Formue Nord Markedsneutral A/S. One unit consists of five (5) shares and two (2) warrants of series TO1. Additionally, the Company has resolved to issue and allocate one (1) warrant of series TO1 to current shareholders for every twenty-two (22) shares owned on the applicable record date.
The board of directors of Realfiction has, based on the authorization given by the extraordinary general meeting on 18 November 2020, resolved on and carried out the Directed Issue. The subscription price in the Directed Issue was set to SEK 89.50 per unit, corresponding to SEK 17.9 per share. The warrants are issued free of charge. The Company will initially receive SEK 35.8 million from the Directed Issue before deduction of transaction costs.
The board of directors of Realfiction assesses, given that the Directed Issue was carried out through an accelerated book-building procedure (conducted by Mangold Fondkommission AB), that the Directed Issue has been carried out in accordance with prevailing market conditions.
The rationale for deviating from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to broaden the shareholder base, as well as the fact that a directed issue provides the opportunity to, at favorable terms, raise capital in a time- and cost-effective manner. This is in line with the assessment of the Company’s board of directors that it is in the Company’s and the shareholders’ best interest to carry out an issue with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights and in accordance with prevailing market conditions.
The proceeds from the Directed Issue and the warrants will be used for a continued development of the ECHO 3D technology while simultaneously continue the sales of the Company’s current mixed reality products. Realfiction’s patent pending ECHO technology holds the potential to revolutionize the flatscreen market, by solving the problem of creating mass-produced and low-cost holographic televisions and monitors in high resolution and for multi-user scenarios without the need for head borne 3D-glasses or headsets. Finding such a solution is a current focus for the leading display manufactures.
The Directed Issue entails an initial dilution of 11.1 percent of the number of shares and votes in the Company. Through the Directed Issue, the number of outstanding shares will increase by 2,000,000 from 16,011,363 to 18,011,363. The share capital will increase by SEK 200,000 from SEK 1,601,136.3 to SEK 1,801,136.3. The issue costs amount to approximately SEK 1.9 million.
The Directed Issue will be registered after the warrants of series TO1, issued to current shareholders, are registered. This entails that investors in the Directed Issue will not receive additional warrants in capacity as shareholders in the Company on the applicable record date
Warrants to current shareholders in Realfiction
The board of directors of Realfiction has also decided to issue warrants of series TO1 (same series as in the Directed Issue) to the Company, which on the record date will be granted free of charge to current shareholders in Realfiction. The warrants will, to some extent, compensate current shareholders in the Company for the dilution in the Directed Issue.
The record date for the allotment of the free of charge warrants of series TO1 will be announced as soon as it is determined. The current shareholders of Realfiction will receive one (1) warrant of series TO1 for every twenty-two (22) held shares on the record date. Round down will be applied if necessary.
Terms and information regarding warrants of series TO1
A total of 1,527,789 warrants of series TO1 will be issued, where 800,000 are allotted to investors in the Directed Issue and 727,789 to be allotted to current shareholders in the Company.
Each warrant of series TO1 will give the holder the right to subscribe for one (1) new share in Realfiction during the period from 9 November 2021 until and including 22 November 2021 to a subscription price corresponding to the following:
70 percent of the volume weighted average price of the Company’s share during the period from 25 October 2021 until and including 5 November 2021. The subscription price shall never be determined to a higher amount than SEK 26.85.
Warrants of series TO1 will, upon full exercise, provide the Company additional funds of a maximum of approximately SEK 41.0 million, based on the maximum subscription price. The actual issue amount will depend on subscription price in the Directed Issue.
Upon full exercise of the warrants of series TO1, the dilution will amount to approximately 7.8 percent, calculated in proportion to the number of shares in the Company following the registration of the new shares of the Directed Issue. Upon full exercise of warrants of series TO1, the number of outstanding shares will increase by 1,527,789 from 18,011,363 to 19,539,152 and the share capital will increase by approximately SEK 152,778.9 from approximately SEK 1,801,136.3 to approximately SEK 1,953,915.2.
“Through this directed issue, which includes warrants with an exercise period next year to potentially minimize the dilutive effect for our existing shareholders, we have now secured the funding needed to complete our ECHO 3D display technology to a point where it can be integrated into future displays targeted at consumer and enterprise audiences. Furthermore, the profiles of the two investors in this directed issue confirm the strong support we are receiving from professional and tech-savvy investors. One of them is a Danish investment fund, while the other is an investment company controlled by a tech-savvy investor who does not want to step forward just yet. This investment company also participated in the directed issue that we conducted in November 2019. I want to thank the whole Realfiction team, our global partners and all our current shareholders for your valuable contribution that has already taken us far, and I welcome all existing and new shareholders on board for the next chapter in Realfiction’s journey, with the aim of truly making our mark in the 3D history books,” says Realfiction’s CEO Clas Dyrholm.
