Swedbank AB (publ) (”Swedbank”) and Nordea Bank Abp, filial i Sverige (”Nordea”) (together the ”Joint Global Coordinators”) have exercised the overallotment option of 1,056,832 new B-shares in Wästbygg Gruppen AB (publ) (”Wästbygg” or the ”Company”). The stabilisation period has now ended, and no additional stabilisation measures will be taken.
As was announced on 30 September 2020, in connection with the offering to acquire new and existing B-shares in the Company and the listing of the Company’s B-shares on Nasdaq Stockholm (the “Offering”), the Company has granted an overallotment option to the Joint Global Coordinators.
The option has introduced the possibility for the Joint Global Coordinators to, during no more than 30 calendar days from the first day of trading in the Company’s B-shares on Nasdaq Stockholm, acquire no more than 1,484,375 additional B-shares. This equals no more than 15 percent of the total number of B-shares included in the Offering, which the Joint Global Coordinators under the option have been able to acquire at a price equal to the price in the Offering of SEK 96 per B-share. The aim of the option was to cover potential overallotment in connection with the Offering.
The Joint Global Coordinators exercise the overallotment option of 1,056,832 new B-shares, which will be used to settle the share loan that was granted to the Joint Global Coordinators by the Company’s main owner M2 Holding AB, in order to facilitate the delivery of overalloted B-shares in connection with the Offering. In order to facilitate exercise of the overallotment option, Wästbygg has agreed to resolve on a new share issue of 1,056,832 B-shares (at a price corresponding to the price in the Offering, SEK 96 per B-share) and following exercise of the overallotment option the total number of B-shares in Wästbygg amounts to 31,720,165 B-shares.
Swedbank has also, in its capacity as stabilisation manager, held a mandate to conduct stabilisation transactions, to the extent the bank deems suitable, with the aim to stabilise the market price of the Wästbygg B-share at a level above that which may otherwise have been in the market. Such transactions have been possible to execute at a price level at or below the price of the Offering.
Stabilisation measures have been possible to execute on Nasdaq Stockholm at any point of time during the period from the first day of trading in the Company’s B-share (13 October 2020) and not more than 30 calendar days thereafter (the “Stabilisation period”), meaning the final day of stabilisation was 11 November 2020. The Stabilisation period has thereby ended, and no further stabilisation measures will be conducted.
Below follows an overview of the stabilisation measures comprising in total 427,543 B-shares which Swedbank has executed during the Stabilisation period, in accordance with Article 5.4 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU/596/2014). This has previously been made public in a press release on 29 October 2020. All transactions during the Stabilisation period have been executed on Nasdaq Stockholm and no other stabilisation measures have been taken.
