Zwipe AS – information about the warrants issued in connection with the rights issue




Zwipe AS


OSLO, NORWAY – 3 January 2024 – Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement published by Zwipe AS (the "Company") on 14 December 2023 regarding the final allocation of a rights issue of units, each consisting of one new share in the Company, each with a nominal value of NOK 0.10 and one warrant of series T01 (the "Warrants"), with preferential rights for existing shareholders raising gross proceeds of approximately NOK 35 million (the "Rights Issue").  

The Rights Issue resulted in the issuance of 64,823,988 Warrants, of which 40,889,612 Warrants were allocated to subscribers in the Rights Issue and 13,480,092 Warrants were allocated to the top guarantor in connection with the Convertible Loan (as defined below). All 64,823,988 Warrants will be listed and tradable on Euronext Growth Oslo for a period commencing today, 3 January 2024 and ending at 16:30 (CET) on 9 December 2024. In addition, the Warrants will be listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Sweden for a period commencing today, 3 January 2024 and ending at 16:30 (CET) on or about 10 December 2024. The 10,454,284 Warrants not allocated to subscribers in the Rights Issue or in connection with the Convertible Loan (as defined below) will not be used and will be returned to the Company.

Two (2) Warrants entitle to the subscription of one (1) new share in the Company. The subscription price upon exercise of the Warrants shall for subscription of one share in the Company be 70% of the ten-day VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price) of the Company's shares on Euronext Growth Oslo the last ten (10) trading days prior to commencement of the Exercise Period, but never lower than NOK 0.10 per share and never higher than 1.20 per share. Consequently, if all Warrants are exercised, the Company expects to raise an additional amount of minimum NOK 3,241,199.40 and maximum NOK 38,894,392.80.

Holders of Warrants may either sell their Warrants or use them to subscribe for shares in the Company, in both cases within the deadlines stated above. As such, the Warrants may have a financial value for the holders, depending on the prevailing market price for the shares in the Company. If the Warrants are not sold or exercised within the respective deadlines, the Warrants will lapse with no compensation to the holders.

For more information pertaining to the Warrants, please see the prospectus prepared in connection with the Rights Issue (the "Prospectus"), which is available on the Company's website and on the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority's website,

Pre-commitment and bottom guarantee commitments:

In connection with the Rights Issue, the Company received subscription commitments from a number of existing shareholders totaling approximately NOK 8.8 million, corresponding to approximately 25 percent of the Rights Issue. No compensation is paid for these subscription commitments.

In addition, Zwipe received so-called bottom guarantee commitments of approximately NOK 15.8 million. Through the bottom guarantees together with the subscription commitments, approximately 70 percent of the issue proceeds in the Rights issue was secured. For the so-called bottom guarantees, a compensation of thirteen (13) percent of the guaranteed amount is paid. The subscription commitments and bottom guarantee commitments were not secured by bank guarantee, escrow funds, pledging or similar arrangements. Detailed information regarding the parties that have entered into subscription commitments and guarantee undertakings can be found in the Prospectus.

Top guarantee commitment and new issue of the Convertible Loan and Warrants pursuant to the top guarantee commitment:

Zwipe received a so-called top guarantee of approximately NOK 10.5 million. The top guarantee was fulfilled by the top guarantor subscribing for a convertible loan in the Company of NOK 10,514,472 (the "Convertible Loan"). Through the top guarantee, together with the subscription commitments and the bottom guarantee commitments, 100 percent of the issue proceeds in the Rights Issue was secured. For the so-called top guarantee, a compensation of fifteen (15) percent of the guaranteed amount is paid. The top guarantee commitment was not secured by bank guarantee, escrow funds, pledging or similar arrangements. The subscription amount has been paid to the Company.

The top guarantor also had the right and obligation to subscribe for Warrants free of charge in relation to the subscription price for the Convertible Loan. The number of Warrants the top guarantor was entitled to subscribe for amounted to the maximum number of Units in the Rights Issue less the aggregate number of Units subscribed for by existing shareholders in the Company and Units subscribed for under the bottom guarantee commitments, multiplied by 0.78. Based on these principles, the top guarantor was allocated 13,480,092 Warrants.
