The holders of warrants of series TO3 have the right to subscribe for one (1) new share in Saniona for each warrant held at a price of SEK 25.00 per share. The subscription price has been determined within the interval of SEK 25.00-30.00 per share in accordance with the warrant terms based on the volume weighted average price of Saniona’s share during the period from and including March 17, 2021, to and including March 30, 2021.

“Saniona recently concluded our most successful year to date, during which we transformed our business model to maximize the value of our innovative medicines, raised SEK 567 million to fund our operations into the second half of 2022, and built our U.S. operations to facilitate access to the U.S. patients, physicians and financial markets that will be critical to our success,” said Rami Levin, President & CEO. “We started 2021 with the achievement of two important milestones: receiving orphan drug designation from the U.S. FDA for Tesomet in Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) and gaining clarity on the the regulatory path forward for Tesomet in hypothalamic obesity (HO). Now we are continuing to build momentum and preparing to simultaneously initiate three clinical trials by mid year: two Phase 2b trials for Tesomet in hypothalamic obesity and Prader-Willi syndrome and a Phase 1 trial with SAN711 for rare neuropathic disorders. We remain in a strong position to advance our innovative treatments for rare diseases. We now invite shareholders to exercise warrants of series TO3, which will generate additional funding to further strengthen our position.”

Action from you as a warrant holder is required – how to exercise your warrants of series TO3:
The TO3 warrants will cease being traded on April 16, 2021. In order for your warrants not to expire, your action is required. You must apply for subscription of new shares, by exercise of warrants, no later than 5:00 p.m. CET April 20, 2021.

You can have your warrants registered in two ways:
1. In a securities custody account with a bank or other nominee (for example, Avanza or Nordnet), in an investment savings account (Sw. Investeringssparkonto) or endowment account (Sw. Kapitalförsäkring). Your warrants are then nominee registered.
2. In a VP-account (a VP-account starts with three zeros). Your warrants are then directly registered.

If your warrants are nominee registered
Subscription and payment of new shares, by exercise of warrants, shall be made to the account-holding bank/nominee with which the warrants are registered. The subscription and payment shall be made in accordance with instructions from each such bank or nominee. Usually, the bank/nominee sends out a digital notice to the account holder, otherwise it is enough to log into the securities custody account from the first day in the exercise period in order to get instructions on how to exercise warrants for subscription of new shares. If you do not find these instructions, please contact your bank or trustee. Please note that banks and other nominees may set different time limits for the last day for subscription, hence it is recommended to contact the account-holding bank/nominee early in the exercise period. Subscribed and payed for shares may be entered as “interim shares” or “IA” into your securities custody account until registration of the issue is completed with the Swedish Companies Registration Office, whereby interim shares will automatically be converted to ordinary shares in Saniona. 

If your warrants are directly registered
Subscription of new shares, by exercise of warrants, shall be made by sending a completed subscription form to Nordic Issuing. In conjunction with sending the completed subscription form, payment must be made to Nordic Issuing in accordance with the payment details stated on the subscription form. Completed subscription form and payment must be registered with Nordic Issuing no later than 5:00 p.m. CET April 20, 2021. Subscribed and payed for shares will be entered as “interim shares” or “IA” into your VP-account until registration of the issue is completed with the Swedish Companies Registration Office, whereby interim shares will automatically be converted to ordinary shares in Saniona.

(Santiago/Oslo, 12. april 2021) Statkraft skal for første gang bygge vindkraftverk i Chile, og øker dermed sin produksjonskapasitet for fornybar energi i det søramerikanske landet, hvor etterspørselen etter vann-, vind- og solkraft er stigende. Sammen med selskapets eksisterende vannkraftportefølje i Chile, vil Statkraft nå en produksjonskapasitet på 366 megawatt (MW) innen utgangen av 2023. Det 102 MW store vindprosjektet Torsa består av tre vindparker, med til sammen 19 turbiner fra den tyske produsenten Nordex. Samlet forventes vindparkene å produsere mer enn 300 GWh med fornybar energi i året – nok til å forsyne 100.000 gjennomsnittlige chilenske hjem. Prosjektet ligger i O’Higgins-regionen, 124 kilometer sør for hovedstaden Santiago. - Disse tre vindparkene øker ikke bare vår produksjonskapasitet i Chile; de utvider vår fornybarportefølje til å for første gang omfatte vindkraft. Framover planlegger vi også å inkludere solkraft i produksjonsmiksen vår, sier Statkrafts konserndirekt
