A top guarantee up to 100 percent of the rights issue has been obtained in addition to the previously disclosed subscription commitments and guarantee consortium.
In addition to the previously guaranteed level of approximately 82.5 percent, SpectraCure has now obtained a top guarantee syndicated by G&W Fondkommission that covers the remaining amount of the rights issue totaling approximately MSEK 140. Like the guarantors of the bottom guarantee, the guarantors of the top guarantee between 82.5 percent and the full amount of the rights issue will receive a compensation in the form of set-off against newly issued units at the same unit price as in the rights issue. The compensation of the top guarantors, a few strategic investors, corresponds to 12 percent of the guaranteed amount. Consequently, no more than 184,095 units, corresponding to no more than 184,095 shares and no more than 184,095 Series TO4 subscription warrants, will be issued to the guarantors as a guarantee fee. The guarantors' fee will thus not affect the cash net proceeds from the rights issue.
SpectraCure has previously obtained subscription undertakings of approximately MSEK 7, corresponding to about 5 percent of the rights issue, MSEK 3 (corresponding to the full pro rata share) of which from MK Capital AB (controlled by CEO Masoud Khayyami) and MSEK 4 of which from Cardeon Futuring Financing AB (30 percent owned by CEO Masoud Khayyami) (corresponding to the full pro rata share). Further to that, a number of external investors have, as previously been disclosed, provided guarantee commitments totaling approximately MSEK 108.4,corresponding to about 77.5 percent of the Rights Issue. Previously disclosed subscription and guarantee commitments thus amount to approximately MSEK 115.4, corresponding to about 82.5 percent of the total Rights Issue.
No cash or other assets have been pledged and no other collateral has been provided to secure the commitments. Detailed information on the parties who have made guarantee commitments will be found in the prospectus, which will be made public in conjunction with the beginning of the subscription period for the rights issue.
