The Board of Directors of NextCell Pharma AB (“NextCell” or the “Company”) announces today the outcome in the Company’s new issue of shares with preferential rights for existing shareholders (the “Rights Issue”).

- In addition, applications for subscription without using subscription rights corresponding to 11,750,102 shares have been received
- The Rights Issue was fully guaranteed through subscription undertakings of approximately SEK 8.4 million and guarantee commitments of approximately SEK 16.7 million
- No guarantee commitments have been utilized
The result in the Rights Issue shows that 4,111,192 shares were subscribed using subscription rights. The remaining part was subscribed without using subscription rights. The interest in subscription of shares without using subscription rights corresponded to 11,750,102 shares.
“We would like to thank everyone who participated in the issue. It is gratifying to note that there is a great interest in NextCell that resulted in a substantial oversubscription. The funds raised now enable Nextcell’s continued development and we look forward to the company’s upcoming listing on Nasdaq First North as well as to the implementation of planned projects, “says Anders Essen-Möller, Chairman of the Board.
Allocation of shares subscribed without using subscription rights within the Rights Issue has been done in accordance with the principles stated in the prospectus published on 3 June 2020. Notice of allotment is made through a settlement note sent to the respective subscribers. Payment for allotted shares must be made in accordance with the instructions in the settlement note.
