Preferential rights issue
Rejlers´ Board of Directors decided on 8 February 2017, subject to approval at the Extraordinary General Meeting on 13 March 2017, to conduct a preferential rights issue of Class A and Class B shares. Those who are registered as shareholders on the record date of 15 March 2017 have preferential rights to subscribe for new shares of the same class in proportion to their existing shareholdings. Shares can be subscribed for without subscription rights. If all shares are not subscribed for with subscription rights, the Board shall, up to the maximum amount of the rights issue, make a decision as to the allocation of shares subscribed for without subscription rights, whereby such shares shall primarily be allocated to those who subscribed for shares with subscription rights and who have indicated that they wish to subscribe for additional shares, whether or not they were shareholders on the record date. In the case of over-subscription, allotment shall be made in proportion to the number of shares that such persons have subscribed for in the preferential rights issue with subscription rights. Secondarily, shares shall be allotted to others who have declared interest for subscription, without the support of subscription rights, and, in the case of over-subscription, allotment shall be made in proportion to the number of shares that each one has declared interest and, to the extent that shares cannot be allotted as stated above, they will be allotted by drawing lots.
Full terms and conditions of the preferential rights issue, including the increase in share capital, number of shares issued and issue price, is expected to be published on 7 March 2017.
The subscription period is expected to be from 17 March 2017 through 31 March 2017, or such later date as decided by the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors' decision regarding the preferential rights issue is subject to approval at the Extraordinary General Meeting.
