Preferential rights issue 2016
Rights issue for new investments
Zhoda Investments has conducted a preferential rights issue to strengthen its capital base by SEK 22 million. The issue has been fully subscribed and the company has raised SEK 22,4 before issue costs. The funds will be used for (i) investments in unlisted European ventures and (ii) development of the Lelyaki oil field to increase production.
Through subscription in the rights issue, the shareholders will gain exposure to Zhoda Investments’ portfolio of unlisted European ventures with an annual return target exceeding 20 per cent. Zhoda Investments is actively pursuing new investments.
In addition, a twenty-year license extension is expected to be granted for the Lelyaki oil field. The new Western management of the Lelyaki partner and new proven sales channel for oil are catalysts for increasing production, profitability and cash flows.
The issue price of SEK 0.20 per share indicates a pre-money valuation of the entire company of SEK 4 million. The balance sheet provided downside protection.
The board will seek a new trading platform to increase liquidity in the share
