NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, SOUTH AFRICA OR JAPAN
MEDICREA INTERNATIONAL (Euronext Growth: ALMED, FR0004178572, PEA-PME eligible), pioneering the convergence of healthcare IT and next-generation, outcome-centered spinal device design with UNiD™ ASI (Adaptive Spine Intelligence) technology ("Medicrea" or the "Company"), today announces a capital increase of €3,083,777 with 4 U.S. institutional investors.
This fund raising concerns a total of 1,127,936 ordinary shares with warrants attached ("ABSA") issued at a unit price of €2.734 (including issue premium), i. e. a gross amount of €3,083,777. The number of ordinary shares issued may be increased to €1,691,904 or a maximum total gross amount of €4,775,681 in the event that all the warrants ("BSA") are exercised.
This fund raising which main goal is to accelerate the development of new services within the UNiD™ HUB will also allow the company to maintain liquid assets above €3.5 million in conformity with existing contractual covenants. The Company believes that this fund raising (excluding the exercise of the warrants) should confer the Company with the means to finance its activity until end of H1 2019.
KEY FEATURES OF THE CAPITAL INCREASE
The ABSAs have been subscribed at a price of €2.734, with a share reference price1 of €2.70. The subscription price of the ABSAs compared to the sum of the reference share price and of the theoretical value of the BSAs shows an overall discount of 8.9%.
Settlement and delivery of the ABSAs should take place (subject to customary market conditions) on July 13th, 2018.
Number of securities issued and resulting dilution
The transaction involves 1,127,936 new ordinary shares issued, resulting in a dilution of approximately 7%. Based on existing capital of 15,082,811 shares prior to the transaction, the capital increase raises the total number of ordinary shares comprising the share capital to 16,210,747 shares.
The new shares carry rights from January 1, 2018, and are tradable on the Euronext Growth market as from July 13th, 2018. They will be listed on the same listing line as the existing shares (ISIN: FR0004178572) as soon as they are admitted for trading.
The shares represent 7.47% of the Company’s share capital as of this day (pre-issue), and 11,22% in the event of the exercise of all the BSAs.
For illustrative purposes, the interest of a shareholder holding 1.00% of share capital of the Company prior to the transaction is brought to 0.93% after the transaction, and would be brought to 0.90% if all the BSAs were to be exercised.
Characteristics of the warrants
1,127,936 new shares issued comes with one BSA, for a total issuance of 1,127,936 BSAs.
Two BSAs entitle holders to subscribe to one new Medicrea ordinary share, at an exercise price of €3.
The BSAs shall be exercisable for a period of three years after their issuance.
The theoretical value of one BSA is €0.3194, assuming a volatility of 40% based on the closing price on July the 9th, 2018 which is equal to €2.70 (Black & Scholes formula).
The BSAs are immediately detached from the shares upon issuance. The BSAs will not be subject to a request for admission to trading on the Euronext Growth market in Paris and will therefore not be listed.
Stonepine Capital, L.P., a U.S. institutional investor is subscribing for 548,647 ABSAs, i.e. in total 48.64% of the 1,127,936 ABSAs.
