The subscription period in Bioservo’s rights issue begins today


Today, May 26, 2023, the subscription period in Bioservo Technologies AB’s (“Bioservo” or the “Company”) rights issue of approximately MSEK 37 begins, which was resolved by the board of directors of Bioservo on May 15, 2023, based on the authorisation of the annual general meeting held on April 25, 2023.

The rights issue in summary:

  • New issue of a maximum of 18,957,984 units with preferential rights for the Company's existing shareholders.
  • The subscription price amounts to SEK 1.95 per unit, corresponding to SEK 0.65 per new share, which, assuming that the rights issue is fully subscribed, results in the Company receiving approximately MSEK 37 before deduction of issue costs. 
  • For each existing share held in the Company on the record date May 24, 2023, two (2) unit rights are obtained. Three (3) unit rights entitle to subscription of one (1) unit during the period May 26 - June 9, 2023. 
  • One (1) unit consists of three (3) shares and one (1) warrant of series TO3 without consideration. One (1) warrant of series TO3 entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) new share during the period December 6 - December 20, 2023, at a subscription price corresponding to 70 percent of the volume-weighted average price of the Company's share during the period November 22 - December 5, 2023, however not less than the share's quota value (currently SEK 0.20) and not more than SEK 2.
  • Major shareholders have expressed their support for the rights issue through subscription undertakings and non-binding intentions to subscribe. Subscription undertakings have been entered into by major shareholders amounting to approximately MSEK 12.8, corresponding to approximately 34.5 percent of the rights issue and a non-binding intention to subscribe has been provided by a major shareholder amounting to approximately MSEK 3.4, corresponding to approximately 9.1 percent of the rights issue. Furthermore, the Company has entered into guarantee commitments of approximately MSEK 20.9, corresponding to approximately 56.4 percent of the rights issue. The rights issue is thus 100 percent secured. The guarantee commitments consist partly of a so-called top guarantee and partly of a bottom guarantee. The subscription undertakings and guarantee commitments are not secured by bank guarantee, blocking funds, pledging or similar arrangements.

The prospectus is available on Bioservo's website,, Aktieinvest FK AB's website,, and on Redeye AB's website
