The issue has been subscribed by Nordea Fonder AB.
The shares will be issued to a price of 94.50 Swedish Crowns per share, which means that the company will be provided with approximately 85 million Swedish Crowns before issue costs.

The Board believes all together that the targeted new share issue will help to create value for all shareholders.
“This is a good way for us to continue to develop our company. A strong financial position is a presumption for success”, says Peter Rejler, Chairman of the Board at Rejlers.
