Background and reason

InCoax is 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 during 2022 received orders of SEK 17.5 million, 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™ 2.5.

The Company has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Nokia aimed at a strategic collaboration around the InCoax system solution for internet access. The agreement establishes terms and guidelines for the global delivery of InCoax MoCA Access™-based solutions, designed for Fiber Access Extension with multigigabit performance over coaxial cable networks in Multiple Dwelling Units (MDU).

This MoU marks the start of a significant collaboration between the two companies with the goal of seamlessly integrating InCoax products and solutions into Nokia's existing end-to-end Internet access solution, including management through Nokia's Altiplano™ Access Controller (fiber network management system). InCoax technology for Fiber Access Extension thus complements Nokia's Gigabit Connect and Passive Optical Network (PON) solutions. Nokia, a global market leader in XGS-PON (10-gigabit PON solutions), aims to position the InCoax system solution as a fast and efficient alternative in multi-family buildings where fiber installations are not practical. The synergy between Nokia's and InCoax's cost-effective solutions means significant savings both during installation and commissioning of broadband installations. The solution reduces installation time and costs for property owners, landlords and residents, while ensuring optimal connection performance. Deliveries under a definitive agreement are expected to start in the second half of 2024.

Through the commercial success resulting from the strategic realignment and having recorded the highest net sales for a single quarter ever in the Company's history during the third quarter of 2023, InCoax in December 2023 communicated that the Company expects to surpass the financial goal for 2023 of doubling sales compared to 2022. In order to generate continued growth and further development of the Company's products, as well as to develop new products, the Company is in need of working capital.

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 52.6 million before issue costs, which are expected to amount to approximately SEK 1.7 million. The net proceeds from the Rights Issue are planned to be used to repayment of loan, as working capital for the operating activities, to finance continued growth as well as M&A investments within technology.

"InCoax is on a very exciting growth journey. After extensive evaluations, Nokia has chosen our MoCATM Access-based system to be included in their Gigabit Connect offering to the operator market for 10Gbps PON networks (XGS-PON). With a fully integrated solution together with Nokia AltiplanoTM, this represents a strong offering to the operator market. The agreement with Nokia opens up sales opportunities for our system in a large number of operator channels. At the same time, the business with Google Fiber is developing and expanding according to plan in a continued good collaboration. We are also receiving ongoing orders and experiencing continued growth from a very large USA-based Tier-1 regarding our MoCATM Home-based solution for single-family homes. In addition to financing an increased working capital due to this sales expansion, we also intend to continue our software development to implement more functionality and thus continuously increase the number of use cases for our system with operators. I am very grateful for the continued strong confidence that our existing major shareholders show in InCoax for the growth plan that underlies the increased financing need." comments Jörgen Ekengren, CEO InCoax.

Terms and conditions of the Rights Issue

The board of directors has today, subject to approval by the extraordinary general meeting on 4 January 2024, resolved to carry out the Rights Issue by issuing a maximum of 36,052,364 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, 8 January 2024, whereby one (1) existing share entitles to one (1) subscription right and two (2) subscription rights entitle to subscription of one (1) new share. The subscription price is SEK 1.46 per share, which means that InCoax, provided that the Rights Issue is fully subscribed, will receive approximately SEK 52.6 million before issue costs. The subscription period runs during the period 10 January - 24 January 2024. 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 10 January - 19 January 2024.

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.

Change of share capital and number of shares and dilution

Through the Rights Issue, the number of shares in InCoax will increase by a maximum of 36,052,364 shares, from 72,104,729 shares to 108,157,093 shares and the share capital will increase by a maximum of SEK 9,013,091.00 from SEK 18,026,182.25 to SEK 27,039,273.25. This means that existing shareholders who choose not to participate in the Rights Issue will, if fully subscribed, experience a dilution of approximately 33.3 per cent of their votes and capital in the Company.

Subscription undertakings and guarantee commitments

InCoax has received subscription undertakings from the existing shareholders Saugatuck Invest AB, Svenska Defence AB, BLL Invest AB, Norrlandspojkarna AB and from several members of the board of directors and management, amounting to a total of approximately SEK 33.4 million, corresponding to approximately 63.5 per cent of the Rights Issue. No remuneration is paid for submitted subscription undertakings.

Furthermore, the Company has entered into agreements regarding guarantee commitments 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 11.6 million, corresponding to approximately 22.0 per cent of the Rights Issue and Svenska Defence has undertaken to subscribe for shares up to an amount of approximately SEK 7.6 million, corresponding to approximately 14.5 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 52.6 million, corresponding to 100 per cent of the Rights Issue. Neither the subscription undertakings nor the guarantee commitments are secured by bank guarantee, blocked funds, pledge, or similar arrangement.

Lock-up undertakings

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 Rights Issue and the lock-up period lasts for a period of 90 days from the announcement of the outcome in the Rights Issue.
