The board of directors of InCoax Networks AB ("InCoax" or the "Company") has today, subject to subsequent approval by the extraordinary general meeting in the Company on 19 October 2022, resolved to carry out a rights issue of shares with preferential rights for the Company's existing shareholders of approximately SEK 50.1 million before issue costs (the "Rights Issue"). The Rights Issue is mainly intended to finance working capital for the operating business, continued growth as well as potential M&A investments within technology. In connection with the Rights Issue, the Company has received subscription undertakings of approximately SEK 41.5 million, corresponding to approximately 82.9 per cent of the Rights Issue. Furthermore, the Company has entered into an agreement with Saugatuck Invest AB regarding a guarantee commitment without remuneration of approximately SEK 8.1 million, which together with the subscription undertakings secure the Rights Issue to approximately 99,1 per cent. The board of directors has also resolved to propose that the extraordinary general meeting on 19 October 2022 authorizes the board of directors to resolve on an over-allotment issue of approximately SEK 15.0 million in order to satisfy Svenska Defence AB's interest to, in the event of an oversubscription in the Rights Issue, fulfil its undertaking to subscribe for shares in the Rights Issue in accordance with submitted subscription undertaking (the "Over-allotment Issue"). The Rights Issue and the Over-allotment Issue are subject to approval by the extraordinary general meeting on 19 October 2022. Notice to the extraordinary general meeting will be published through a separate press release.
Background and reason
InCoax is a public limited company developing innovate solutions for broadband access, so-called "Fiber Access Extension" solutions, with gigabit speed and provides next-generation sustainable network products and system solutions to the world's leading telecom and broadband service operators.
During 2020, InCoax underwent a strategy change to position the Company more clearly towards system design and solutions for bigger Tier 1 operators. This has resulted in a Master Purchase Agreement (MPA) with Google Fiber Inc., an American national fiber/LAN operator operating in 19 American metropolitan areas.
In addition to the agreement with Google Fiber Inc., InCoax has after successful field tests received an initial order of SEK 3.5 million in September 2022, on products relating to private single-family homes from an American Tier 1 operator. The Tier 1 operator has a need in the segments of private single-family homes and apartment buildings to connect four million households and 1.6 million households respectively to fiber within the next three to five years. In parallel, InCoax continues discussions with the American Tier 1 operator regarding the last step, productization and commercialization of InCoax' multigigabit solution for fiber extension in multi-family homes - InCoax MoCA Access[TM] 2.5.
Furthermore, InCoax broadened its offering in September 2021 by launch of Distribution Point Unit D2501, targeting smaller multi-family homes, which increases InCoax' addressable market. Distribution Point Unit D2501 is currently undergoing field tests at two American operators, in Europe one operator has initiated tests and another has ongoing field tests in four buildings. There are also other operators who have shown interest in this solution, where tests are expected to start in the second half of 2022. The expanded operations will, according to the Company, initially increase the Company's working capital needs.
To secure the Company's working capital and development needs and to be able to carry out the Company's business plan and strategy, the board of directors has resolved to carry out the Rights Issue. The Rights Issue is estimated to provide InCoax with approximately SEK 50.1 million before issue costs, which are expected to amount to approximately SEK 2.0 million. The net proceeds from the Rights Issue are planned to be used as working capital for the operating activities, to finance continued growth as well as M&A investments within technology. In addition, the board of directors may, in the event of an oversubscription in the Rights Issue, resolve on an Over-allotment Issue in the form of a directed issue of not more than SEK 15.0 million to the investor Svenska Defence AB. The net proceeds from the Over-allotment Issue are planned to be used to accelerate the Company's expansion and further development of the Company's software to further broaden the customer base of operators.
Provided that the Rights Issue is fully subscribed and the Over-allotment Issue is exercised in full, the Company will receive approximately SEK 65.1 million before issue costs.
"InCoax is facing a major expansion and through this financing we are establishing a solid foundation to stand on for further penetration of the US market and the growth journey we see ahead of us. As previously announced, we have, over time, deepened our collaboration with Google Fiber and we see clear indications of continued growth in this business. We have also won a first order from a very large US-based Tier 1 operator with whom we also see great growth potential. In addition to financing an increased working capital due to this expansion, we also intend to accelerate our software development to implement more functionality and thereby broaden the number of use cases of our system with operators. In addition to the high level of trust shown by existing major owners, it is also very encouraging that through this financing we strengthen our owner base with another major and long-term owner. All in all, these commitments indicate a very strong confidence in our future growth plan", comments Jörgen Ekengren, CEO.
Terms and conditions of the Rights Issue and the Over-allotment Issue
The board of directors has today, subject to approval by the extraordinary general meeting on 19 October 2022, resolved to carry out the Rights Issue by issuing a maximum of 25,695,885 shares. The right to subscribe for shares with preferential rights shall vest in those who are registered as shareholders in the Company on the record date, 25 October 2022, whereby one (1) existing shares entitles to one (1) subscription right and eight (8) subscription rights entitles to subscription of five (5) shares. The subscription price is SEK 1.95 per share, which means that InCoax, provided that the Rights Issue is fully subscribed, will receive approximately SEK 50.1 million before issue costs. The subscription period runs during the period 27 October - 10 November 2022. Subscription rights that are not utilized during the subscription period will become invalid and lose their value. Trading in subscriptions rights is expected to take place on Nasdaq First North Growth Market during the period 27 October - 7 November 2022.
If not all shares are subscribed for by exercise of subscription rights, allotment of the remaining shares shall be made within the highest amount of the Rights Issue: firstly, to those who have subscribed for shares by exercise of subscription rights (regardless of whether they were shareholders on the record date or not) and who have applied for subscription of shares without exercise of subscription rights and if allotment to these cannot be made in full, allotment shall be made pro rata in relation to the number of subscription rights that each and every one of those, who have applied for subscription of shares without exercise of subscription rights, have exercised for subscription of shares; secondly, to those who have applied for subscription of shares without exercise of subscription rights and if allotment to these cannot be made in full, allotment shall be made pro rata in relation to the number of shares the subscriber in total has applied for subscription of shares; and thirdly, to those who have provided underwriting commitments with regard to subscription of shares, in proportion to such underwriting commitments. To the extent that allotment in any section above cannot be done pro rata, allotment shall be determined by drawing of lots.
In connection with the Rights Issue, Svenska Defence AB has undertaken to, without compensation, subscribe for shares with preferential right in the Rights Issue to an amount of SEK 1.7 million. In addition, Svenska Defence AB has undertaken to subscribe for shares without preferential rights in the Rights Issue for an amount of approximately SEK 15.0 million. In order to satisfy Svenska Defence AB's interest to, in the event of an oversubscription in the Rights Issue, fulfil its undertaking to subscribe for shares in the Rights Issue in accordance with the submitted subscription undertaking as well as the possibility of raising additional proceeds to the Company, the board of director proposes that the extraordinary general meeting on 19 October 2022 resolves to authorize the board of directors to, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, resolve on a new issue of shares in the form of a so-called Over-allotment Issue of a maximum of approximately SEK 15.0 million. The right to subscribe for shares in the Over-allotment Issue shall only vest in Svenska Defence AB that has submitted a subscription undertaking in the Rights Issue. Svenska Defence AB's subscription in the Over-allotment Issue will thus amount to the difference between Svenska Defence AB's total subscription undertaking of approximately SEK 16.7 million and its actual subscription within the Rights Issue, meaning that Svenska Defence AB's total undertaking within the Rights Issue and the Over-allotment Issue amounts to approximately SEK 16.7 million.
The board of directors may resolve to exercise the Over-allotment Issue, in whole or in part, in the event the Rights Issue is oversubscribed. The subscription price in the Over-allotment Issue will amount to SEK 1.95 per share, corresponding to the subscription price in the Rights Issue. Upon full exercise of the Over-allotment Issue, the Company will receive an additional approximately SEK 15.0 million through the issue of a maximum of 7,692,307 shares.
Change of share capital and number of shares as well as dilution
Through the Rights Issue, the number of shares in InCoax will increase by a maximum of 25,695,885 shares, from 41,113,418 shares to 66,809,303 shares and the share capital will increase by a maximum of SEK 6,423,971.25 from SEK 10,278,354.50 to SEK 16,702,325.75. This means that existing shareholders who choose not to participate in the Rights Issue will, if fully subscribed, experience a dilution of approximately 38.5 per cent of their votes and capital in the Company.
In the event the Over-allotment Issue is exercised in full, the Company's share capital will increase by an additional SEK 1,923,076.75 to SEK 18,625,402.50 and the number of shares with 7,692,307 shares to a total of 74,501,610 shares. The dilution from the Over-allotment Issue alone amounts to 10.3 per cent. In total, if the Rights Issue is fully subscribed and the Over-allotment Issue is exercised in full, the dilution will amount to 44.8 per cent.
Subscription undertakings and guarantee commitments
InCoax has received subscription undertakings from five of the Company's existing shareholders, amounting to a total of approximately SEK 26.5 million, corresponding to approximately 53.0 per cent of the Rights Issue. In addition, Svenska Defence AB has also undertaken to subscribe for shares without subscription rights in the Rights Issue as well as in a potential Over-allotment Issue of an amount corresponding to a total of SEK 15.0 million. In aggregate, the Rights Issue is thereby covered by subscription undertakings amounting to approximately SEK 41.5 million, corresponding to approximately 82.9 per cent of the Rights Issue. No remuneration is paid for submitted subscription undertakings.
Furthermore, the Company has entered into an agreement regarding a guarantee commitment where Saugatuck Invest AB, controlled by the chairman of the board of directors Peter Agardh, has undertaken to subscribe for shares in the Rights Issue up to an amount of approximately SEK 8.1 million, corresponding to approximately 16.2 per cent of the Rights Issue. No remuneration is paid for the submitted guarantee commitment.
In aggregate, the Rights Issue is covered by subscription undertakings and guarantee commitments of approximately SEK 49.6 million, corresponding to approximately 99.1 per cent of the Rights Issue.
In connection with the Rights Issue, all members of the board of directors and senior management with shareholdings in InCoax have undertaken towards Vator Securities AB, subject to customary exceptions, not to sell or otherwise transfer their shares without first, in each separate case, ascertain a written approval from Vator Securities AB. The decision to leave such written approval is decided by Vator Securities AB and the decision is made in each separate case. Agreed approval can depend on both individual and business-related situations. The lock-up undertakings only cover the shares that are held before the Offering and the lock-up period lasts for a period of 90 days from the date of expiration of the subscription period in the Rights Issue.
