In its capacity as stabilization manager, EPB had the authority to carry out transactions aimed at supporting the price of the Asarina share at a higher level than would otherwise have prevailed in the market, although not at a price higher than the subscription price in the Offer.
Furthermore, Asarina Pharma has issued an option to EPB to subscribe to 350,000 newly issued shares in the Company (the ”Over-allotment option”), corresponding to no more than 5.1 percent of the number of newly issued shares in the Offer, to cover any possible oversubscription in the Offer. The price of the newly issued shares in the Over-allotment option equals the price in the Offer, SEK 21 per share. EPB announces that the Over-allotment option of 350,000 shares has been fully exercised.
The Company will thus be provided with an additional SEK 7.35M, which means that the Company has received a total of SEK 150.2M, before transaction costs, through the Offer and the Over-allotment option. After registration of the new shares issued under the Over-allotment option, the number of shares and votes in the Company will amount to 16,037,218.
