Cleantech Invest made directed share issue to enable additional add-on investment in fast growing portfolio company

Releases

Based on authorization granted by the Extraordinary General Meeting on 9 March 2016 and subscription commitments received from a small group of investors, the Board of Directors of Cleantech Invest Plc (“Cleantech Invest” or the “Company”) has on 25 July 2016 resolved on a directed share issue (the “Offering”).

In the Offering, 793,271 new class A shares (the “Offer Shares”) were offered for subscription at the subscription price of EUR 1,10 per share, which equals to the volume weighted average price of Cleantech Invest Plc’s class A share on First North Finland during the time period between 13 April 2016 and 13 July 2016 and a discount of 5%. The Offer Shares have been subscribed for in full by a small group of investors. The entire subscription price of the Offer Shares will be recorded in the reserve for invested unrestricted equity. The Offer Shares represent approximately 3.65% of the outstanding shares in the Company after the Offering, when taking into account also 150,000 new class K shares subscribed based on the Company’s stock options 2013 as well as 41,268 new class A shares subscribed in the share exchange executed in connection with the Company’s investment in ResQ Club Oy, the registration of which to the Trade Register is pending on the date of this resolution.

The reason for the Offering is for the Company to have the ability to make an add-on investment in a fast growing portfolio company, which is currently in fund raising process. Having the ability to make this investment is in the interest of Cleantech Invest shareholders as it is a sound investment in its own right and having the ability to do the investment increases funding possibilities for the portfolio company, decreases the risk as well as enhances the upside potential in this holding significantly.

Cleantech Invest will apply for listing of the Offer Shares on First North Finland and First North Sweden. Cleantech Invest will publish an update to its company description published in April 2016 in connection with the listing of the Offer Shares.
