NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, HONG KONG, JAPAN, SINGAPORE, SOUTH AFRICA, SOUTH KOREA OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE SUCH RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL OR WOULD REQUIRE REGISTRATION OR ANY OTHER MEASURES. PLEASE REFER TO IMPORTANT INFORMATION AT THE END OF THE PRESS RELEASE.
Stockwik Förvaltning AB (publ) (”Stockwik” or the ”Company”) hereby announces intention to carry out a directed new share issue of up to 1,026,055 new shares directed to Swedish and international institutional investors (the “Directed New Share Issue”).
The Company intends to carry out the Directed New Share Issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights pursuant to the authorization granted by the annual general meeting on 8 May 2020. Stockwik has engaged Pareto Securities AB (“Pareto Securities”) to investigate the conditions to carry out the Directed New Share Issue through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure.
The subscription price for the shares in the Directed New Share Issue will be determined through the accelerated bookbuilding procedure, which will begin immediately after publication of this press release and end before the commencement of trading on Nasdaq Stockholm on 14 April 2021. The bookbuilding procedure may, at the discretion of the Company or Pareto Securities, close earlier or later and may be cancelled at any time, meaning the Company may refrain from carrying out the Directed New Share Issue. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Directed New Share Issue to finance future acquisitions and general corporate purposes.
The reason for carrying out the Directed New Share Issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights is to diversify the ownership base in the Company among Swedish and international institutional investors as well as to raise capital in a time and cost efficient manner. Given that the subscription price in the Directed New Share Issue will be determined through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure, the board of directors assesses that the subscription price will be set on market terms and conditions.
In connection with the Directed New Share Issue, the Company has undertaken, with customary exceptions, not to issue additional shares for a period of 12 months after the announcement of the outcome of the Directed New Share Issue. Board members and management have undertaken not to sell any shares in Stockwik for a period of 90 calendar days after the announcement of the outcome of the Directed New Share Issue, with customary exceptions.
Pareto Securities AB acts as Sole Manager and Bookrunner, Gernandt & Danielsson Advokatbyrå KB acts as legal counsel to the Company and Baker McKenzie Advokatbyrå KB acts as legal counsel to Pareto Securities in connection with the Directed New Share Issue.

Solely for the purposes of each manufacturer's product approval process in the United Kingdom, the target market assessment in respect of the shares in the Company has led to the conclusion that: (i) the target market for such shares is only eligible counterparties, as defined in the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook, and professional clients, as defined in Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 ("UK MiFIR"); and (ii) all channels for distribution of such shares to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate (the “UK Target Market Assessment” and, together with the EU Target Market Assessment, the “Target Market Assessment”) Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the shares in Stockwik may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the shares in Stockwik offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the shares in Stockwik is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Directed New Share Issue. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, the Manager will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II or UK MiFIR; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the shares in Stockwik.
Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the shares in Stockwik and determining appropriate distribution channels.
