Stock exchange release 15 November 2022 at 9:10 a.m.

NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, SOUTH AFRICA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, CANADA, NEW ZEALAND, SINGAPORE OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF THE RELEVANT LAWS OR REGULATIONS OF SUCH JURISDICTION. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE THE “IMPORTANT NOTICE” BELOW.

Enersense International Plc (“Enersense” or “Company”) has completed the acquisition of Unified Chargers Oy announced on 20 October 2022. In the transaction, Enersense acquired the entire stock of Unified Chargers Oy. The purchase price (“Purchase Price”) of the acquisition is approximately EUR 1.2 million and it will be adjusted as agreed in the purchase agreement (“Purchase Agreement”) according to the so-called locked box method.

The revenue of Unified Chargers Oy for the financial year that ended on 31 January 2022 was EUR 0.4 million and loss for the period was EUR -0.4 million. Its balance sheet total on 31 January 2022 was EUR 0.9 million.

For the payment of the Purchase Price, in connection with the closing of the transaction, Enersense issued, in a directed share issue (“Share Issue”), a total of 199,174 new Enersense  shares (“Consideration Shares”) in a share exchange for subscription by the shareholders (“Sellers”) of Unified Chargers Oy. The Sellers have subscribed for the issued Consideration Shares offered for subscription in the Share Issue in full, and the Board of Directors of Enersense has accepted the Sellers’ share subscriptions.

The Share Issues were carried out by the decision of the Board of Directors of Enersense in deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive subscription right under the authorisation given by the Extraordinary General Meeting of Enersense on 10 November 2022. The Consideration Shares issued in the Share Issue were issued in order to develop the group’s business and finance the corporate transaction, so there is a weighty financial reason for the Share Issue and the deviation from the pre-emptive right of the shareholders within the meaning of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act.

The value of a Consideration Share in the Share Issue was approximately EUR 6.05 per share and the total subscription price of the Consideration Shares EUR 1,205,000. According to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement, the value of a Consideration Share corresponds to the trade volume weighted average price of the Company’s share on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd during a period of three (3) weeks following the date of signing of the Purchase Agreement, that is, for the period from 21 October to 10 November 2022. The number of shares allocated to a single Seller as payment for the Purchase Price is calculated to one decimal place and rounded to the lowest total number of shares.

According to the terms of the lock-up agreements (“Lock-up Agreement”) concerning the Consideration Shares concluded by Enersense and the Sellers in connection with the closing of the transaction, a total of 67 percent of the Consideration Shares subscribed for by each Seller in the Share Issue are subject to so-called lock-up sales restrictions (“Lock-up”). The Lock-up is lifted in stages within 24 months, as agreed in the Lock-up Agreement.

After the new shares subscribed for in the Share Issue have been registered in the Trade Register, the total number of Enersense shares will be 16,492,531 shares. The number of Consideration Shares directed for subscription corresponds to approximately 1.2 percent of Enersense’s stock after the registration of the Consideration Shares. The Consideration Shares will entitle to full dividends possibly distributed by Enersense and to other distribution of assets as well as carry other shareholder rights in the company starting from when the Consideration Shares have been entered in the Trade Register and the shareholders’ register of the Company.  Enersense will be requesting admission to public trading of the new shares on the official list of Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd as the same type of shares as Enersense's current shares, after they have been registered in the Trade Register.
