Alligator Bioscience AB (publ) (“Alligator” or the “Company”) hereby announces that the exercise price for warrants series TO 6 (the “warrants”) is SEK 0.40. The exercise period for the warrants begins on August 17, 2023, and runs up to and including August 31, 2023. The last day for trading in the warrants is August 29, 2023.
Alligator carried out a rights issue of units during April – May 2023 (the “Rights Issue”). Each unit issued in the Rights Issue consisted of one (1) ordinary share and one (1) warrant series TO 6. Eight (8) warrants of series TO 6 entitle the holder to subscribe for one (1) new ordinary share in the Company. If all warrants are exercised, Alligator will receive approximately SEK 20 million before issue costs.
The subscription price for the warrants was set at the higher of (i) SEK 0.40 and (ii) 70 percent of the volume-weighted average price for the Company's share on Nasdaq Stockholm during the period August 1, 2023 – August 14, 2023. 70 percent of the volume-weighted average price during the measurement period was below SEK 0.40 and thus the subscription price is SEK 0.40.
