Cibus successfully completes a directed share issue of 2,680,000 new shares and raises proceeds of approximately 418 million SEK

Cibus Nordic Real Estate AB (publ) ("Cibus" or the "Company") hereby announces that the Company has completed an accelerated bookbuilding procedure and resolved on a directed share issue (the "Share issue") which was communicated in a press release earlier today. The Share issue comprises 2,680,000 new shares at a price of 156 SEK per share. The subscription price for the shares in the Share issue has been determined through a bookbuilding procedure led by Nordea Bank Abp, filial i Sverige and Pareto Securities AB. Through the Share issue, Cibus will receive proceeds amounting to approximately 418 million SEK before transaction related costs.

NOT FOR RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION, PUBLICATION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY IN WHOLE OR IN PART IN THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA OR ANY JURISDICTION WHERE SUCH RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL OR WOULD REQUIRE REGISTRATION OR ANY OTHER MEASURES

The Share issue

The board of directors of Cibus has based on the authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting held on 24 April 2020 resolved on a directed share issue to Swedish and international institutional, and other qualified investors. The Share issue comprises 2,680,000 new shares at a subscription price of 156 SEK per share and the Company will hereby receive approximately 418 million SEK before transaction related costs. Cibus completed the Share issue with the objective of securing financing to be able to capture the acquisition opportunities that the Company has identified in its main markets where the total pipeline amounts to approximately 120 million EUR.

The subscription price has been determined through a bookbuilding procedure and corresponds to a discount of approximately 5 percent to the closing price of the Company's share on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market 1 December 2020. The board of directors' assessment is that the subscription price in the Share Issue is in accordance with market conditions since it has been determined through the bookbuilding procedure led by Nordea Bank Abp, filial i Sverige and Pareto Securities AB as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners (jointly the "Managers").

The board of directors of Cibus concludes that the interest in the Share issue was strong as it was significantly oversubscribed by both new as well as existing investors. The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights are mainly because the Company considers it appropriate to further diversify the shareholder base among Swedish and international institutional, and other qualified, investors as well as to raise capital in a time- and cost-efficient manner.

The Share issue entails a dilution of approximately 7 percent of the number of shares and votes in Cibus by increasing the number of outstanding shares with 2,680,000 from 37,320,000 to 40,000,000. The share capital of the Company will increase by 26,800 EUR from 373,200 EUR to 400,000 EUR.

Lock-up undertakings

In connection with the Share issue, the Company's CEO, Sverker Källgården, and CFO, Pia-Lena Olofsson, have undertaken, with certain exceptions, not to sell or in other ways dispose their shares in the Company for a period of 90 calendar days after the completion of the Share issue.

The Company has undertaken not to propose or take measures involving activities increasing the share capital, share issues and similar measures, with certain exceptions, for a period of 90 calendar days after the completion of the Share issue, without the consent of the Managers.

Nordea Bank Abp, filial i Sverige and Pareto Securities AB act as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners. Baker McKenzie acts as legal adviser to the Managers in connection with the Share issue. Roschier Advokatbyrå AB acts as legal adviser to the Company in connection with the Share issue.
