CHROMOGENICS ANNOUNCES OUTCOME OF RIGHTS ISSUE
The Board of Directors of ChromoGenics AB (“ChromoGenics” or the “Company”) announces the outcome of the rights issue of units with preferential rights for the existing shareholders, announced on 17 May 2023 (the “Rights Issue”). The Rights Issue was 56.0 percent subscribed for with and without the support of unit rights. In total, 167,157,849 units were subscribed for with the support of unit rights, representing approximately 55.6 percent of the Rights Issue, and 1,045,519 units were subscribed for without the support of unit rights, representing approximately 0.3 percent of the Rights Issue. The remaining guaranteed part of the Rights Issue, corresponding to 72,019,594 units or approximately 24.0 percent, will be allocated to guarantors and ChromoGenics will thereby receive a total of approximately SEK 24.0 million before issue costs.
Outcome of the Rights Issue
The subscription period for the Rights Issue ended on 12 July 2023 and the outcome shows that the Rights Issue was subscribed for approximately 56.0 percent with and without the support of unit rights. In total, 167,157,849 units were subscribed with the support of unit rights, corresponding to approximately 55.6 percent of the Rights Issue, and 1,045,519 units without the support of unit rights, corresponding to approximately 0.3 percent of the Rights Issue. The remaining guaranteed part of the Rights Issue, corresponding to 72,019,594 units or approximately 24.0 percent, will be allocated to guarantors. The Rights Issue will raise approximately SEK 24.0 million before issue costs, which are expected to amount to approximately SEK 5.0 million, including the costs of the guarantors (assuming that all guarantors will choose payment in cash). The proceeds of the issue will be used primarily to enable continued growth and finance an upscaling of the Company’s sales.
Notification of the allocation of units subscribed for without subscription rights will be sent to those who have been allocated units in the form of a settlement note. Shareholders registered with a trustee will receive notification of allocation in accordance with the procedures of the respective trustee. Allotment of units subscribed for without the support of subscription rights has been carried out in accordance with the principles set out in the prospectus published on 21 June 2023.

We have a very exciting time ahead of us and I want to thank our shareholders, both new and those who have supported and believed in us over the years, for your renewed confidence.“
