The Extraordinary General Meeting of Kungsleden AB (publ) was held today. The Extraordinary General Meeting resolved to approve the Board of Directors’ decision on a rights issue with preferential rights for existing shareholders.
The terms of the rights issue entitle each existing share held on the record date for the rights issue, 19 September 2014, to 1 subscription right. 3 subscription rights entitle to subscription for 1 new share. The subscription price is SEK 35 per share which, at full subscription, will result in a total issue size of approximately SEK 1,593 million before issue costs. The subscription period will run from 23 September up to and including 8 October 2014.
At full subscription, the number of shares will increase from 136,502,064 to 182,002,752 and the share capital will increase from SEK 56,875,860 to SEK 75,834,480.
The reason for the rights issue is to enhance the financial flexibility and facilitate the company’s ability to realise its growth plans and thereby create additional shareholder value.
