Cibus has completed a directed new share issue of 6,220,000 shares, raising ca SEK 886 million to finance the acquisition of a property portfolio of supermarkets from Coop

INSIDER INFORMATION: The board of directors of Cibus Nordic Real Estate AB (publ) ("Cibus" or the "Company") has, as announced in the Company's press release earlier today, and with authorisation from the extraordinary general meeting on 23 January 2020, resolved to carry out a new share issue of 6,220,000 shares, corresponding to approximately SEK 886 million (the "Directed New Share Issue"). The subscription price in the Directed New Share Issue was set to SEK 142.5 per share and has been determined through a so-called accelerated bookbuilding procedure, carried out by Pareto Securities AB and Swedbank AB (publ) (together the "Managers"). The Directed New Share Issue was heavily oversubscribed. Investors in the Directed New Share Issue are a number of Swedish and international institutional investors, including Clearance Capital, The Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund (AP4), Länsförsäkringar Fastighetsfond, Norron Asset Management, and Sensor Fonder. The proceeds from the Directed New Share Issue will be used to partially finance the acquisition of a property portfolio with 111 supermarkets located in Sweden, with an underlying property value of approximately SEK 1,900 million, from Coop (the "Acquisition") as the Company previously announced today. The proceeds from the Directed New Share Issue will also be used to finance future acquisitions in line with the Company's strategy.

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.

Summary of the Directed New Share Issue

· The subscription price in the Directed New Share Issue was set to SEK 142.5 per share and has been determined through a so-called accelerated bookbuilding procedure which was carried out by the Managers.

· Through the Directed New Share Issue, Cibus will raise approximately SEK 886 million before transaction costs.

· The Directed New Share Issue was subscribed for by a number of Swedish and international institutional investors, among others Clearance Capital, The Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund (AP4), Länsförsäkringar Fastighetsfond, Norron Asset Management, and Sensor Fonder.

· Through the Directed New Share Issue, the number of outstanding shares in the Company will increase by 6,220,000 from 31,100,000 to a total of 37,320,000. The share capital will increase by EUR 62,200 from EUR 311,000 to EUR 373,200.

The Directed New Share Issue

The rationale for carrying out the Directed New Share Issue and for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights is to secure financing in a time- and cost-effective manner for the Acquisition that is expected to be completed before commencement of trading on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market on 5 March 2020. For additional information on the Acquisition, see the separate press release with headline "Cibus Nordic Real Estate AB (publ) moves into Sweden, announces intention to acquire a property portfolio with supermarkets from Coop and obtains new financing" that was published today. By determining the subscription price in the Directed New Share Issue through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure, it is the assessment of the board of directors that the subscription price will accurately reflect current market conditions and demand.

The subscription price in the Directed New Share Issue is set to SEK 142.5 per share and has been determined through the accelerated bookbuilding procedure carried out by the Managers. The subscription price in the Directed New Share Issue constitutes a discount of approximately 2.7 percent compared to the Cibus' last closing price on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market on 4 March 2020. Through the Directed New Share Issue, the Company will raise approximately SEK 886 million before transaction costs.

The Directed New Share Issue entails a dilution of approximately 16.7 percent of the number of shares and votes in the Company. Through the Directed New Share Issue, the number of outstanding shares will increase by 6,220,000 from 31,100,000 to 37,320,000. The share capital will increase by approximately EUR 62,200 from EUR 311,000 to EUR 373,200.

The board of directors' decision to carry out the Directed New Share Issue was made with the authorisation granted by the shareholders of the Company at the extraordinary general meeting on 23 January 2020.

Lock-up commitments

In connection with the Directed New Share Issue, the Chairman of the board, Patrick Gylling (through a wholly-owned entity), board member Jonas Ahlblad and CEO Sverker Källgården have undertaken not to sell any of their shares in the Company for a period of 180 calendar days after the announcement of the outcome of the Directed New Share Issue, with customary exceptions.

The Company has also undertaken, with customary exceptions, not to propose or take any action that would entail an increase in the share capital, such as new issues or similar measures, for a period of 180 days, without the consent of the Managers.
