The extraordinary general meeting in Hoylu AB (publ) (“Hoylu” or the “Company”) resolved on 28 November 2018 to approve the board of directors resolution to execute an issue of convertible loan notes of a maximum of SEK 10 million with pre-emption rights for the shareholders, with exemption from the shareholders Alden AS, Fougner Invest AS, Pine AS, Hering AS and Skadi AS (the “Issue”). The Company carried out a directed issue of convertible loan notes to the aforementioned shareholders, why the reason for derogating from mentioned shareholders’ pre-emptive right is to provide the Company with additional liquid funds to continue expanding the business of the Company but also to repair the potential dilutive effect that may occur in a conversion for shares due to the directed issue.  

The Company has due to execution of the Issue drafted an information memorandum with information of the Company and the complete terms and conditions of the Issue to investors.
