Ensurge Micropower ASA: Contemplated Private Placement
NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO AUSTRALIA, CANADA, HONG KONG, JAPAN OR THE UNITED STATES OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF ANY OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN.
Ensurge Micropower ASA ("Ensurge" or the "Company") has engaged Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) and SpareBank 1 Markets AS (jointly, the “Managers”) to advise on and effect a contemplated private placement of new ordinary shares in the Company (the "Offer Shares") raising gross proceeds of approximately NOK 40-60 million (the "Private Placement"), at a subscription price per share of NOK 0.10 (the "Offer Price").
The final number of Offer Shares to be issued will be determined by the Company's board of directors (the "Board"), in consultation with the Managers, on the basis of an accelerated bookbuilding process to be conducted by the Managers.
The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to fund the Company’s operations, Go-to-Market activities and production ramp up. Over the next 6-9 months, the Company expects significant funding from customers and strategic partners to complement this equity funding.
The bookbuilding period for the Private Placement will commence on 18 October 2023 at 16:30 CEST and is expected to close on 19 October 2023 at 08:00 CEST (the "Bookbuilding Period"). The Company, after consultation with the Managers, reserves the right to at any time and in its sole discretion resolve to close or to extend the Bookbuilding Period or to modify or cancel the Private Placement in its entirety without further notice. If the Bookbuilding Period is shortened or extended, any other dates referred to herein may be amended accordingly.
The allocation of Offer Shares will be determined at the end of the Bookbuilding Period and the final allocation will be made at the sole discretion of the Board after input from the Managers. Allocation will be based on criteria such as (but not limited to), existing ownership in the Company, timelines of the application, relative order size, sector knowledge, investment history, perceived investor quality and investment horizon. There is no guarantee that any potential investor will be allocated shares in the Private Placement. The Board may, at its sole discretion, reject and/or reduce any applications. There is no guarantee that any applicant will be allocated Offer Shares. Notification of allotment and payment instructions is expected to be issued to the applicants on or about 19 October 2023 through a notification to be issued by the Managers.
The Private Placement will be divided into two tranches. The first tranche will consist of up to 122,846,875 shares ("Tranche 1" and the "Tranche 1 Offer Shares"), which equals the number of shares the Board may issue based on the current outstanding authorization to issue new shares granted by the extraordinary general meeting of the Company on 11 July 2023 (the "Authorization"). The second tranche will consist of the remaining number of shares for the Private Placement ("Tranche 2" and the "Tranche 2 Offer Shares"). Issuance of the Tranche 2 Offer Shares will be subject to approval by an extraordinary general meeting of the Company expected to be held on or about 9 November 2023 (the "EGM"). The Offer Shares are expected to be allocated pro rata to applicants in Tranche 1 and Tranche 2.
Settlement of the Tranche 1 Offer Shares is expected to take place on or about 23 October 2023 on a delivery versus payment ("DvP") basis facilitated by a pre-funding agreement entered into between the Company and the Managers. The Offer Shares allocated to investors in Tranche 2 will only be tradable on Oslo Børs following approval by the EGM and approval of a prospectus (the "Prospectus") by the Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway (the “FSA”), and will be issued on a separate ISIN until the Prospectus has been approved and published.
Completion of Tranche 1 is subject to necessary corporate resolutions by the Board required to consummate Tranche 1 of the Private Placement, including final approval by the Board of the Private Placement and issuance of the Tranche 1 Offer Shares pursuant to the Authorization. Completion of Tranche 2 is subject to (i) completion of Tranche 1, and (ii) the EGM resolving to issue the Tranche 2 Offer Shares. Completion of Tranche 1 will not be conditional upon or otherwise affected by the completion of Tranche 2, and the applicants' acquisition of Tranche 1 Offer Shares will remain final and binding and cannot be revoked, cancelled or terminated by the respective applicants if Tranche 2, for whatever reason, is not completed.
The Private Placement will be directed towards Norwegian and international investors, subject to applicable exemptions from relevant registration, filing and prospectus requirements, and subject to other applicable selling restrictions. The minimum application and allocation amount has been set to the NOK equivalent of EUR 100,000. The Company may however, at its sole discretion, allocate amounts below EUR 100,000 to the extent exemptions from the prospectus requirements in accordance with applicable regulations, including the Norwegian Securities Trading Act and ancillary regulations, are available.
The Board has considered the contemplated Private Placement in light of the equal treatment obligations under the Norwegian Securities Trading Act and Oslo Børs' Circular no. 2/2014 and deems that the proposed Private Placement would be in compliance with these requirements. The Board holds the view that it will be in the common interest of the Company and its shareholders to raise equity through a private placement, in view of the current market conditions and the growth opportunities currently available to the Company. A private placement enables the Company to raise capital in an efficient manner, and the Private Placement is structured to ensure that a market-based subscription price is achieved.
The Subsequent Offering
Subject to among other things (i) completion of the Private Placement, (ii) relevant corporate resolutions including approval by the Board and the EGM, (iii) prevailing market price of Ensurge's shares being higher than the Offer Price, and (iv) approval of the Prospectus by the FSA, Ensurge will consider carrying out a subsequent offering (the "Subsequent Offering") of new shares in the Company. A Subsequent Offering will, if made, be directed towards eligible shareholders in Ensurge who are shareholders in the Company as of 18 October 2023, as registered in Ensurge's register of shareholders with the Euronext Securities Oslo, the central securities depositary in Norway (Nw. Verdipapirsentralen) on 20 October 2023, who (i) were not included in the wall-crossing phase of the Private Placement, (ii) were not allocated Offer Shares in the Private Placement, and (iii) are not resident in a jurisdiction where such offering would be unlawful or, for jurisdictions other than Norway, would require any prospectus, filing, registration or similar action (the "Eligible Shareholders"). The Eligible Shareholders are expected to be granted non-tradable allocation rights. If carried out, the subscription period in a Subsequent Offering is expected to commence shortly after publication of the Prospectus, expected to occur during November, and the subscription price in the Subsequent Offering will be the same as the subscription price in the Private Placement. Ensurge will issue a separate stock exchange notice with further details on the Subsequent Offering if and when finally resolved.
