Salmon Evolution Holding ASA: Cancellation of subsequent offering


26th April 2021 / 05:00

Reference is made to the stock exchange notice from Salmon Evolution Holding ASA (the "Company" or “Salmon Evolution”, OSE ticker code "SALME") on 11 March 2021 regarding the successful completion of the NOK 500 million private placement at a price of NOK 6.0 per share (the "Private Placement") and a conditional subsequent offering of up to 8,333,333 new shares in the Company (the "Subsequent Offering").

As announced in the stock exchange notice, completion of the Subsequent Offering is subject, inter alia, to the prevailing market price of the share. Following the Board of Directors’ conditional resolution to carry out a subsequent offering, the price of the share has, for an extended period and with substantial volume, traded below the subscription price in the planned Subsequent Offering.

Existing shareholders wanting to avoid or reduce the dilutive effect of the Private Placement have had the opportunity to purchase shares in the open market at prices below the subscription price in the Private Placement and the contemplated Subsequent Offering.

The Company has therefore resolved to cancel the Subsequent Offering.
