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.
Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement published earlier today on 18 October 2023 by Ensurge Micropower ASA ("Ensurge" or the "Company") regarding a contemplated private placement (the "Private Placement") of new shares in the Company (the "Offer Shares"). Ensurge is pleased to announce that the Private Placement has been successfully placed through an allocation of 122,846,875 Offer Shares in Tranche 1 (the "Tranche 1 Offer Shares") and an allocation of 352,153,125 Offer Shares in Tranche 2 (the "Tranche 2 Offer Shares"), at a subscription price of NOK 0.10 per Offer Share (the "Subscription Price") for total gross proceeds (i.e. both tranches) of NOK 47.5 million.
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 share issue and associated share capital increase in Tranche 1 has been resolved by the board of directors of the Company pursuant to an authorization to issue new shares granted by the annual general meeting of the Company on 11 July 2023 (the "Authorization"). Following completion of Tranche 1 of the Private Placement, the Company's share capital will be NOK 198,253,573.30 divided into 1,982,535,733 shares, each with a par value of NOK 0.10.
Issuance of the Tranche 2 Offer Shares will be subject to: (i) completion of Tranche 1, (ii) approval by an extraordinary general meeting of the Company (the "EGM") to issue the Tranche 2 Offer Shares, expected to be held on or about 10 November 2023. The notice for the EGM is expected to be distributed on or about 20 October 2023.
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 by delivery of existing and unencumbered shares in the Company that are already listed on Oslo Børs pursuant to a pre-funding agreement entered into between the Company and the Managers. The Tranche 1 Offer Shares will be tradeable from (but not before) the registration of the share capital increase pertaining to the Tranche 1 Offer Shares in the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises.
Payment of Tranche 2 is expected on or about 10 November 2023, however, the Tranche 2 Offer Shares will not be tradeable on Oslo Børs until a prospectus (the "Prospectus") has been approved 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.
The Subsequent Offering
The Board will further propose to the EGM that a subsequent offering of new shares in the Company is carried out at a subscription price per share equal to the Subscription Price in the Private Placement (the "Subsequent Offering"). The maximum amount of the Subsequent Offering will be NOK 12.5 million. The Subsequent Offering will be 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 Subscription Price, and (iv) approval of the Prospectus by the FSA. A Subsequent Offering would 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) are 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- tradeable subscription 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 2023. Ensurge will issue a separate stock exchange notice with the key information relating to the Subsequent Offering.
