Resolution on issue of new shares (item 6)
The shareholder IR Holding Bidco Inc. (“IR Holding”), holding approximately 87.2 percent of the total number of shares and votes in the Company, proposes that the General Meeting resolves to increase the Company's share capital by a maximum of SEK 10,147,945.20 through a new issue of a maximum of 338,264,840 ordinary shares, each with a quota value of SEK 0.03.
The new shares may, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential right, only be subscribed for by IR Holding, with the obligation for the subscriber to make payment for subscribed shares by way of set-off against loans amounting to SEK 60,000,000 plus accrued interest as of 12 September 2023 of SEK 887,671. The subscription price is SEK 0.18 per ordinary share. The subscriber may not subscribe for fewer shares than such share subscriber is entitled to subscribe for according to above.
Subscription must take place no later than 14 October 2023. The set-off will be considered executed immediately in connection with subscription of the new shares. The Board of Directors shall have the right to extend the subscription period and the time of payment. The new shares give the right to a dividend from and including the first record day regarding dividends that occur after the registration of the new shares with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. The amount that exceeds the quota value must be added to the free premium fund.
The purpose of the new issue and the reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential right is to enable the Company to settle outstanding loan amounts of a total of SEK 60,887,671 according to the short-term financing originally provided by Bacara Holdings Ltd. and which, in connection with the completion of the ongoing public takeover offer of the shares in the Company, has been transferred to IR Holding. On 24 August 2023, through the independent bid committee, the Company reported on the Company’s challenges in finding alternative financing to be able to repay the short-term loan, which initially was due for payment on 15 September 2023 but has been extended to 15 October 2023. Through the proposed set-off share issue, a loan amount of SEK 60,000,000 plus accrued interest will be settled and the Company thereby avoids becoming insolvent, which would otherwise have been imminent. The subscription price amounts to the bid price in the public takeover offer.
The company's managing director is authorized to make minor formal adjustments to the issue resolution that may prove necessary in connection with registration of the new shares with the Swedish Companies Registration Office or Euroclear Sweden AB.
For a valid decision of the General Meeting according to the above proposal, it is required that the resolution be supported by shareholders who represent at least two thirds of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the General Meeting.
The shareholders’ right to submit questions
The shareholders are reminded of their right, in accordance with Chapter 7 Section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act, to request information from the Board and the CEO at the Meeting.
As per 18 September 2023, the total number of shares and votes in the Company amounts to 794,813,400. The Company holds no shares in the Company. For information about how your personal data will be processed, see
The Board of Directors of the Company will issue a separate press release to be announced in connection with the announcement of this notice to convene the Extraordinary General Meeting. The press release will also be available at the Company’s website, www.irras.com.
