The Private Placement has enabled Oasmia to place 26 new convertible instruments with a limited group of investors at a nominal value of SEK 1,000,000 per convertible instrument through an accelerated book building procedure.
The convertible loan is issued with the purpose of replacing the Company’s financing under the Company’s convertible loan 2017:2 in the total amount of MSEK 26, which fell due for payment 18 April 2018. The fallen due loan amount under the Company’s convertible loan 2017:2 will be paid to the convertible loan holders in May 2018 and the fallen due interest was paid in April 2018.
In order to enable the placement, the Board of Directors of Oasmia has, by virtue of the authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting held on 25 September, 2017, resolved on a directed issue of a new convertible loan in the amount of SEK 26,000,000. The convertible instruments have been subscribed at 100 per cent of the nominal amount and the convertible loan bear an interest rate of 8 per cent per year. The conversion rate is based on the closing price of Oasmia’s shares on Nasdaq Stockholm on 18 April 2018 with premium and will amount to SEK 4.90. The term of the loan is approximately one year with a maturity date on 22 April 2019 if not converted to shares earlier. The terms of the convertible instruments are based on an accelerated book building procedure on 18 April 2018 and the Board of Directors has thereby ensured that the terms of the convertible instruments corresponds to fair market standards.
