Company Announcement No. 30-2023
Aalborg, November 23, 2023
Commencement of private placement
In the company announcement no. 28-2023, MapsPeople A/S ("MapsPeople") announced that short term additional capital might be required to fully finance operations through 2023. In continuation hereof, the Board of Directors of MapsPeople has today decided to strengthen the company's share capital by launching an issuance of new shares in a private placement (the "Private Placement"), expectedly to result in DKK 7-9 million in gross proceeds.
The private Placement of new shares (the "New Shares") is directed to a number of current shareholders underlining their strong commitment to and belief in MapsPeople. The Private Placement is expected to be subscribed for in the period from 23 November 2023 to 28 November 2023. MapsPeople will inform the market of the result of the subscription of the Private Placement immediately thereafter. The Private Placement will be carried out at a subscription price of DKK 1.19 per share equaling the average closing price of the share in the period from 16 November 2023 to 22 November 2023.
The Private Placement is made pursuant to and in compliance with the applicable exemptions from the obligation to publish a prospectus, and the New Shares will be issued in accordance with the Board of Directors' authorization to increase MapsPeople's share capital without pre-emptive rights for the existing shareholders.
The Private Placement is expected to be completed on 1 December 2023 and the New Shares are expected to be admitted to trading on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark on 5 December 2023.
Background for the Private Placement
As mentioned in company announcement no. 28-2023, the company announced a short term capital requirement through 2023 and, to achieve a point of cash flow breakeven in 2024, a total requirement of DKK 15-20 million. This Private Placement is a part of providing that required capital.
Admission to trading
The New Shares will be listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark in reliance on the exemption in the EU Prospectus Regulation and not on the basis of a prospectus.
The New Shares will be issued in the systems of VP Securities A/S ("Euronext Securities Copenhagen") and delivered to the investors in the temporary ISIN code DK0062615589. The temporary ISIN code will not be admitted to trading on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark but will only be registered with Euronext Securities Copenhagen for use in connection with the investors' subscription of the New Shares. The temporary ISIN code in Euronext Securities Copenhagen will be merged with the permanent ISIN code for the existing shares, DK0061549052, as soon as possible following registration of the share capital increase with the Danish Business Authority, expectedly on 6 December 2023.
The New Shares are expected to be admitted to trading on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark on or around 5 December 2023 in the permanent ISIN code for MapsPeople's existing shares.
