The board of directors of ChromoGenics AB (publ) ("ChromoGenics" or the "Company") has today, subject to subsequent approval by the extraordinary general meeting on 5 April 2024, resolved on a directed issue of 2,505,885 shares (the "Directed Issue"). The subscription price amounts to SEK 6.44 per share and was determined based on an accelerated bookbuilding procedure carried out by Vator Securities AB (acting as Sole Bookrunner). The subscribers in the Directed Issue consist of existing shareholders, including the Company's two largest shareholders Färna Invest AB and Parment Förvaltning AB. In addition, the Company has received subscription intentions from all shareholding board members, including the Company's chairman, Johan Hedin, and the Company's CEO, Fredrik Fränding. The proceeds from the Directed Issue will mainly be used to strengthen the sales organisation, intensify partnership dialogues and finance the Company's working capital. In connection with the Directed Issue, ChromoGenics has also entered into loan agreements, on market terms, of a total of SEK 7 million, SEK 5 million with Parment Förvaltning AB, of which SEK 2.5 million is intended to be set off against shares in connection with the Directed Issue, and SEK 2 million with Bengt Josefsson Utveckling Aktiebolag.

The Directed Issue

The board of directors of ChromoGenics has today, subject to subsequent approval by the extraordinary general meeting on 5 April 2024, resolved on a directed share issue of 2,505,885 shares. The subscription price in the Directed Issue amounts to SEK 6.44 per share, corresponding to approximately 5 per cent discount compared to the closing price of the Company's share on Nasdaq First North Growth Market prior to the board of directors' resolution on the Directed Issue. Since the subscription price has been determined through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure, it is the board of directors' assessment that the subscription price reflects current market conditions and is thus market-based.

Through the Directed Issue, ChromoGenics receives approximately SEK 16 million before issue costs. The subscribers in the Directed Issue consist of existing shareholders, including the Company's two largest shareholders Färna Invest AB and Parment Förvaltning AB. In addition, the Company has received subscription intentions from all shareholding board members, including the Company's chairman, Johan Hedin, and the Company's CEO, Fredrik Fränding. The proceeds from the Directed Issue will mainly be used to strengthen the sales organisation, intensify partnership dialogues and finance the Company's working capital.

Prior to the Directed Issue, the Board has carefully considered the possibility of raising capital through a rights issue and makes the assessment that there are currently several reasons why it is more favourable for the shareholders to raise capital through a directed issue. A rights issue in the current market would entail a risk that the Company would not be able to meet its capital needs. A rights issue would also expose the Company's shareholders to a risk of a severely depressed share price, especially in this market with very high discounts in rights issues and high underwriting fees to underwriters. In light of this, since the Directed Issue (i) meets the capital needs to strengthen the sales organisation, intensify partnership dialogues and finance the Company's working capital and (ii) can be carried out in a more time-efficient manner and at a lower cost and with less complexity than a rights issue, it is the board of directors' overall assessment that the reasons that clearly and with sufficient strength justify that the issue is carried out with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights outweigh the reasons that justify the main rule that a new share issue shall be carried out with preferential rights for the shareholders. The Board of Directors therefore considers that a new share issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights is in the Company's and all shareholders' interest and thus the most appropriate alternative.

Dilution

The Board intends, inter alia, to propose to the Extraordinary General Meeting on 5 April 2024 that the share capital shall be reduced by SEK 12,374,904.64, from SEK 35,062,217.64 to SEK 22,687,313. This reduction entails that the quota value per share is reduced from approximately SEK 8.5 to SEK 5.5.

Through the Directed Issue, the number of shares in the Company will increase by a maximum of 2,505,885 shares, from 4,124,966 to 6,630,851, and the share capital will increase by a maximum of 13,782,367.5 SEK, from 22,687,313 SEK to 36,469,680.5 SEK (based on the quota value of the share after the reduction of the share capital that the board of directors intends to propose to the extraordinary general meeting on 5 April 2024). This corresponds to a dilution effect of approximately 37.8 per cent of the shares and votes in the Company.

Extraordinary General Meeting

The board of directors' resolution on the Directed Issue is conditional upon approval and resolution by the extraordinary general meeting on 5 April 2024. In order to carry out the Directed Issue at the stated subscription price, the Company's share capital must be reduced in order to lower the quota value of the Company's shares. The board of directors of the Company has therefore proposed that the extraordinary general meeting, where the board of directors' resolution on the Directed Issue is to be approved, resolves to reduce the Company's share capital for allocation to non-restricted equity. The resolution on the Directed Share Issue assumes and is conditional upon the extraordinary general meeting resolving to reduce the Company's share capital in accordance with the board of directors' proposal to the extraordinary general meeting. Notice of the extraordinary general meeting will be published through a separate press release.

Loan financing

In connection with the Directed Issue, ChromoGenics has also entered into loan agreements, on market terms, totalling SEK 7 million, SEK 5 million with Parment Förvaltning AB, of which SEK 2.5 million is intended to be set off against shares in connection with the Directed Issue, and SEK 2 million with Bengt Josefsson Utveckling Aktiebolag. The loans run until 27 December 2024, with the possibility of early repayment at no cost.

About ChromoGenics

ChromoGenics is a proptech company that produces smart dynamic glass, improving indoor environment and well-being while reducing energy consumption, operational costs, and climate impact in real estate. The product, ConverLight® dynamic glass, is based on a unique patented technology from the Ångström Laboratory in Uppsala, where electrochromic coatings are sputtered onto plastic films. The result is a dynamic foil that can be laminated into glass, providing effective sun protection in buildings and reducing environmental impact in production, transportation, and usage. The dynamic foil is easy to transport and can be applied by local partners in the glass industry, avoiding the need for long-distance shipments of bulky glass. All products from ChromoGenics prioritize environmental and health aspects, focusing on eco-friendly materials, reduced energy consumption, increased access to daylight and views, and improved indoor comfort.

ChromoGenics' production facility in Uppsala has been partly financed through conditional loans from the Swedish Energy Agency. ChromoGenics' stock (CHRO) is listed on the Nasdaq First North Growth Market, with Vator Securities serving as the Certified Adviser.
