NOT FOR RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR TO THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, JAPAN, SOUTH AFRICA, AUSTRALIA OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION, WHERE SUCH ACTIONS ARE SUBJECT TO LEGAL RESTRICTIONS. THIS PRESS RELEASE DOES NOT MAKE AN OFFER REGARDING ANY SECURITIES IN BIOSERVO.

Bioservo Technologies Aktiebolag (”Bioservo” or the ”Company”) has, in accordance with the Company’s press release earlier today and based on the authorization from the Annual General Meeting on April 19, 2021, resolved on a directed issue of 3,159,664 shares at a subscription price of SEK 11.50 per share (the "Directed Issue"). Through the Directed Issue Bioservo will raise SEK 36.3 million before issue costs. The price in the Directed Issue has been determined through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure carried out by Erik Penser Bank.

The Board of Directors of Bioservo has, based on the authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting on April 19, 2021 and in accordance with what was indicated in the Company's press release earlier today, resolved on the Directed Issue of 3,159,664 shares to the existing shareholder Adrigo Asset Management and a number of qualified private investors and family offices. The subscription price amounts to SEK 11.50 per share and Bioservo thereby raises SEK 36.3 million before transaction costs. The price in the Directed Issue has been determined through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure and corresponds to a discount of 8.0 percent against the closing price for the Company's share on Nasdaq First North Growth Market on September 28, 2021. As the price was determined through an accelerated bookbuilding procedure it is the Board’s assessment that the Directed Issue was carried out on market terms.

To facilitate the implementation of the Directed Issue, the new shares were initially subscribed for by Erik Penser Bank, to an amount corresponding to the quota value of the shares. In connection with payment from the investors in the Directed Issue, around October 1, 2021, the Company will receive the remaining amount, i.e. the difference between the quota value and the price in the Directed Issue.

Bioservo intends to use the net proceeds from the Directed Issue to strengthen the Company’s sales resources and development capacity.

We believe 2022 will become the most intense year up to date in the history of Bioservo in which we expect to have break throughs in more markets and go through with new launchings in new industries. In order to meet expected increased demand we see a need to expand Bioservo’s commercial abilities. The Directed Issue allows us to strengthen our sales resources in relevant business areas while increasing development investments to ensure Bioservo’s continuing leading position within soft exoskeletons", says Bioservo's CEO Petter Bäckgren

The Directed Issue has a dilution effect of approximately 16.7 percent of the number of shares and votes in Bioservo calculated as the dilution of the number of shares and votes after the Directed Issue. Through the Directed Issue, the number of outstanding shares increases by 3,159,664 shares, from 15,798,321 shares shares to 18,957,985. The Company's share capital increases by SEK 631,932.80 from SEK 3,159,664.20 to SEK 3,791,597.00. The reasons for deviating from the shareholders' preferential right are to execute capitalization of the Company in a time and cost-effective manner.
