Furthermore, the Managing Board has resolved to increase the share capital of the Company by a further up to EUR 1,121,700.00 by issuing up to 1,121,700 new no-par value registered shares from the authorized capital 2017 against cash contributions while granting subscription rights to the shareholders of the company ("capital increase with subscription rights" and, together with the capital increase without subscription, "capital increases"). The shares from the capital increase with subscription rights will also be offered without a prospectus.
The exact number of new shares from the capital increase without subscription rights, the placement price, the subscription price, the possible exclusion of fractional amounts as well as the subscription ratio will be determined in an accelerated bookbuilding process, which will begin immediately after this announcement and will be determined by the Managing Board, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, after completion of the accelerated bookbuilding process and will be published. The exact number of new shares from capital increase with subscription rights is expected to be determined by the Management Board, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, after the end of the subscription period.
The subscription period is expected to begin on June 4, 2021, and to end on June 18, 2021 (both inclusive). There will be no trading in subscription rights on the stock exchange. The existing shares of the Company will be listed on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Prime Standard) "ex subscription right" as of the June 4, 2021.
The new shares from the capital increase with subscription rights shall be offered to the above-mentioned qualified investors before the start of the subscription period, if there is corresponding demand. Within the pre-placement, claw-back rights during the allocation are intended to ensure that new shares are available for the exercised subscription rights by shareholders of the company.
The new shares from the capital increases will be entitled to participate in profits from January 1, 2021 and be admitted to trading without a prospectus on the regulated market and at the same time to the partial regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
Delticom intends to use the issue proceeds to strengthen its equity ratio as well as to repay loans and to create new scope for financing and growth.
Moreover, Delticom is in talks with a long-standing partner company about a potential investment, which would include a financing with components of debt and/or equity. Depending on the specific volume of the capital increases, the company will discontinue these talks and other processes to gain equity in a timely manner.
