RIGHTS ISSUE


Reference is made to authority to issue new shares granted by the annual general meeting of AKVA group ASA ("AKVA") on 19 May 2011, as well as the stock exchange release dated 27 April 2011 with preliminary details of a contemplated rights issue.

 

The board of AKVA has today resolved to carry out a rights offering as previously announced. The share issue is resolved in order to strengthen the balance sheet, and thereby to gain momentum in the development and positioning of AKVA for the future. Key areas will be investments in development of the company's core products and core lines of business.

 

Pursuant to the board's resolution the company will issue 8,611,434 new shares at a subscription price of NOK 11.00 per share, which will result in gross proceeds to AKVA of NOK 94,725,724. The rights offering has been fully underwritten by an underwriting consortium consisting of existing shareholders.

 

AKVA's shareholders as of 24 May 2011, as they appear in the company's shareholder register in the Norwegian Central Securities Depository (VPS) on 27 May 2011 ("Existing Shareholders"), will have preferential rights to subscribe shares in the rights offering and will receive tradable subscription rights.

 

The shares of AKVA will trade inclusive of the right to receive subscription rights to and including 24 May 2011, and without the right to receive subscription rights from and including 25 May 2011.

 

A prospectus setting out detailed information about the company and the rights offering will be prepared and made public prior to the first day of the subscription period, which is expected to be 3 June 2011.

 

The main terms of the rights offering are:

 

  • The share capital in AKVA will be increased with NOK 8,611,434 through issuance of 8,611,434 new shares.
  • The subscription price is NOK 11.00 per share.
  • Gross proceeds at completion will be NOK 94,725,774.
  • Existing Shareholders will receive 0.5 tradable subscription rights for each share they own as registered in the VPS as of 27 May 2011. One subscription right entitles the holder to subscribe for and be allocated one new share.
  • The subscription rights will be freely transferable and AKVA will apply for the subscription rights to be listed on Oslo Børs (with ticker "AKVA T") in the subscription period.
  • Subscription rights that are not used for subscription of new shares or sold before the end of the subscription period will lapse and be of no value to the holder. Over-subscription and subscription without subscription rights is allowed.
  • Provided the Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanstilsynet) approves the prospectus on 27 May 2011, the subscription period will start on 3 June 2011 and end on 17 June 2011 at 17:30 (CET). If the prospectus is not approved within 27 May 2011, the subscription period and the other relevant dates in connection with the rights offering may be postponed with the number of days it takes to have the prospectus approved after
    27 May 2011.
  • Allocation of new shares in the rights offering will take place on or about 23 June 2011.
  • Payment for allocated shares will take place on or about 28 June 2011.
  • The shares that are issued in the rights offering is expected to be tradable on or about
    5 July 2011.
  • The underwriting fee payable to the members of the underwriting consortium equals 2 % of the subscription amount under the rights offering, in total NOK 1,894,515.48.

 

 

After completion of the rights offering the share capital in AKVA will be NOK 25,834,303, divided on 25,834,303 shares, each having a par value of NOK 1.00.

 

Pareto Securities AS is engaged as financial advisor and arranger for the rights issue.
