TETHYS OIL COMPLETES DIRECTED NEW SHARE ISSUE OF SEK 100 MILLION
The Board of Tethys Oil AB (publ) (the “Company”) has, exercising the mandate
that was granted at the AGM held on 25 May 2011, made the decision to make a
directed issue of 2,500,000 new shares (the “Issue”).
A total of 2,500,000 shares were allotted to mainly Swedish and international
institutional investors. The issue price was set through book building at SEK
40, which corresponds to a discount of approximately 7 percent to the volume
weighted average share price the last trading day before the Issue. Payment for
the new shares shall be made in cash three days after settlement note has been
sent. Through the Issue, SEK 100 million will be brought to the Company before
issue expenses. The proceeds from the Issue are intended to be used to fund
Tethys’ ongoing investment programme in Oman and for general working capital
Following the Issue, the number of shares amounts to 35 043 750, of which the
new shares correspond to 7.1 percent of the equity. The company’s share capital
increases with SEK 416,667 from SEK 5,423,958 to SEK 5,840,625.
The new shares will entitle to dividends for the first time at the record date
for dividend that is closest after the new shares have been registered by the
Swedish Companies Registration Office (Bolagsverket).
The reason for deviating from the shareholders’ preferential right was to reach
institutional investors and broaden the Company’s investor base.
Pareto Öhman AB is financial adviser to the Company in connection with the
Issue. Gernandt & Danielsson Advokatbyrå KB is the legal adviser to Pareto
Öhman AB in connection with the Issue.
