NOT FOR RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO AUSTRALIA, CANADA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, NEW ZEALAND, SWITZERLAND, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL. OTHER RESTRICTIONS ARE APPLICABLE. PLEASE SEE THE SECTION "IMPORTANT INFORMATION" AT THE END OF THIS PRESS RELEASE.

IRRAS AB ("IRRAS" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: IRRAS) has completed a directed share issue of 13,200,000 shares at a subscription price of SEK 5 per share (the "Directed Issue"), through which the Company receives approx. SEK 66 million before transaction costs.

The Board of Directors of IRRAS has, based on the authorization to issue shares granted by the annual general meeting on April 28, 2021 and as announced by the Company through press release earlier today, resolved on a directed issue of 13,200,000 shares at a subscription price of SEK 5 per share, consequently raising gross proceeds of approx. SEK 66 million. The subscription price in the Directed Issue was determined through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure lead by Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ), and was, accordingly, in the assessment of the Board of Directors set on market terms and conditions.

A number of Swedish and international new and existing shareholders participated in the Directed Issue, including the Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund, Bacara Holdings Limited, Lexington Holding Assets Ltd and the Xanthopoulos family trust.

The reason for deviating from the shareholders' preferential rights in the Directed Issue is to raise capital in a time- and cost-effective manner and to diversify the shareholder base with Swedish and international institutional investors.

The net proceeds from the Directed Issue is intended to be used to ensure continued and successful implementation of the Company's growth strategy, including:
  • accelerate commercialization of the product portfolio in the US and EU to maximize equipment footprint to drive disposable revenue;
  • convert evaluation phase IRRAflow systems into revenue-generating commercial centers; and
  • general corporate purposes

The Directed Issue entails a dilution of approximately 16.6 percent of the number of shares and votes in the Company (calculated as the number of newly issued shares divided by the total number of shares in the Company after the Directed Issue). Through the Directed Issue, the number of shares and votes in the Company will increase by 13,200,000 from 66,281,340 to 79,481,340. The share capital will increase by SEK 396,000.00 from approx. SEK 1,988,440.20 to approx. SEK 2,384,440.20.

In connection with the Directed Issue, the Company has agreed to a lock-up undertaking, with customary exceptions, on future share issuances for a period of 180 calendar days after the settlement date of the Directed Issue. In addition, the members of the Board of Directors and certain members of the senior management of the Company, have agreed to not sell any shares in IRRAS for a period of 180 calendar days after the settlement date of the Directed Issue, subject to customary exceptions.

Advisers

Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ) is acting as Sole Global Coordinator and Bookrunner in connection with the Directed Issue. Setterwalls Advokatbyrå is legal adviser to the Company in connection with the Directed Issue.

Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the shares 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 Issue. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Carnegie Investment Bank will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.
