NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR TO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, HONG KONG, JAPAN, SWITZERLAND, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA, SOUTH KOREA OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION OF THIS PRESS RELEASE WOULD NOT BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE LAW OR REQUIRE REGISTRATION OR ANY OTHER MEASURE. PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT INFORMATION AT THE END OF THE PRESS RELEASE.
The Board of Directors of Ferroamp AB (publ) ("Ferroamp" or the "Company") has, based on the authorisation granted by the annual general meeting on 12 May 2022, resolved to carry out a directed share issue of one million shares at a subscription price of SEK 60 per share to Swedish and International institutional investors (the "Directed Share Issue"). The subscription price was determined through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure performed by Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ) ("Carnegie").
The bookbuilding procedure, which was announced by the Company earlier today, has been completed and the Board of Directors of Ferroamp has resolved to carry out a directed issue of one million shares at a subscription price of SEK 60 per share, consequently raising proceeds of SEK 60 million before deduction of costs attributable to the Directed Share Issue. A number of Swedish and international institutional investors subscribed for shares in the new share issue, among others Swedbank Robur.
After the Directed Share Issue, the total number of shares in Ferroamp will amount to 14,542,001. The Directed Share Issue entails a dilution effect of approximately 6.9 per cent based on the total number of shares in Ferroamp after the Directed Share Issue. Through the Directed Share Issue, the number of shares and votes in the Company will increase by 1,000,000 from 13,542,001 to 14,542,001. The share capital will increase by SEK 100,000.00 from SEK 1,354,200.10 to SEK 1,454,200.10.
Ferroamp intends to use the proceeds from the Directed Share Issue to accelerate the Company's growth and business development through the following initiatives:
- Investments in the continued development of the product portfolio in order to effectively meet increased demand
- Continue to develop the digital service offering, which will strengthen the Companys overall offering
- Further develop existing concepts within microgrids based on the Companys PowerShare technology
- The companys ongoing development work
The Board of Directors is of the opinion that the proceeds contribute to a good balance of different financing sources, increases the capitalisation and decreases the overall risk level. Prior to the Directed Share Issue, the Company has also considered the possibility to firstly raise the required equity through a preferential rights issue. In connection with this, the Board of Directors has assessed that a rights issue would be significantly more time-consuming and entail significantly higher costs and increased exposure to potential market volatility compared to the Directed Share Issue. Unlike a rights issue, the Directed Share Issue has also broadened the shareholder base and provided the Company with new reputable institutional owners, which the Board of Directors considers to be of benefit to Ferroamp and the general liquidity in the share. In the light of the above, the Board of Directors has made the assessment that a Directed Share Issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights was the most favourable alternative for Ferroamp and in the best interest of the Company's shareholders. As the subscription price in the Directed Share Issue was determined through a bookbuilding procedure, the Board of Directors assesses that the subscription price reflects current market conditions and demand.
In connection with the Directed Share Issue, a number of employees, that all have subscribed for shares through the Company's ongoing options program series 2019/2022, have sold an additional 73,800 shares.
In connection with the Directed Share Issue, the Company has undertaken, subject to customary exceptions, not to issue additional shares during a period of 180 calendar days following the completion of the Directed Share Issue. Members of the Board of Directors and the Company's management owning shares and/or subscription rights have agreed not to sell any shares in the Company during a period of 90 calendar days following the completion of the Directed Share Issue, subject to customary exceptions.
Carnegie has acted as Sole Global Coordinator and Sole Bookrunner in connection with the Directed Share Issue. Baker McKenzie Advokatbyrå KB has acted as legal counsel to Ferroamp.

Information to distributors
Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the shares in the Company have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the "EU Target Market Assessment"). Solely for the purposes of each manufacturers product approval process in the United Kingdom, the target market assessment in respect of the shares in the Company has led to the conclusion that: (i) the target market for such shares is only eligible counterparties, as defined in the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook, and professional clients, as defined in Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 ("UK MiFIR"); and (ii) all channels for distribution of such shares to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate (the "UK Target Market Assessment" and, together with the EU Target Market Assessment, the "Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Distributors should note that: the price of the shares in the Company may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the shares in the Company offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the shares in the Company is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Directed Share Issue. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Carnegie will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II or UK MiFIR; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the shares in the Company.
Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the shares in the Company and determining appropriate distribution channels.
