Opus Group publishes updated information for the upcoming rights issue
Opus Group announced in a press release on July 9, 2012 that the company intends to conduct a rights issue to existing shareholders of SEK 50 million. The proceeds from the rights issue will be used to partly finance the acquisition of 70 inspection stations from Bilprovningen.
Opus Group has today published the press release with the notice to the extraordinary general meeting on September 6, 2012. The timing and structure of the rights issue have been adjusted slightly in relation to what has been published by a press release published on July 9, 2012. Opus Group’s Board of Directors proposes that the EGM authorizes the Board to resolve on the issuance of up to SEK 55 million and set the terms and conditions for the issue. The reason why the authorization is proposed to include a maximum of SEK 55 million is that the Board notwithstanding any rounding problems, is given the opportunity to determine the appropriate ratio for the number of subscription rights in proportion to the shares held and the appropriate subscription price.
New preliminary schedule for the rights issue is presented below.
