Enersense International Plc successfully completes its 1,775,000 new share directed share issue and raises approximately EUR 16 million

The Board of Directors of Enersense International Plc (“Enersense” or “the Company”) has today decided on the completion of the directed share issue of Enersense (the “Share Issue”) based on the authorization issued by the annual general meeting on 19 March 2021. The final subscription price per Offer Share (as defined below) is EUR 9.10 per share in the Institutional Offering and the Public Offering (as defined below), and 10 percent lower in the Personnel Offering (as defined below) being EUR 8.19 per share. Subscription price in the Institutional and Public Offering is based on book-building process arranged with institutional investors and it corresponds to approximately 14.2 percent discount to the volume-weighted average price on 21 June 2021 and approximately 9,4 percent discount to volume-weighted average price during a ten-trading-day period immediately prior to the publishing of the terms and conditions of the Share Issue on 10 June 2021. Trading in the Offer Shares is expected to start on the official list of Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd on or about 23 June 2021.

Enersense will issue 1,775,000 new shares in the Company (the “Offer Shares” or the “New Shares”), corresponding to approximately 13.2 percent of the total number of outstanding shares after the Share Issue.

516,226 Offer Shares will be allocated to private individuals and entities in Finland (the “Public Offering”), 1,140,000 Offer Shares will be allocated to institutional investors in Finland and internationally in compliance with the applicable legislation (the “Institutional Offering”), and 118,774 Offer Shares will be allocated to the employees employed by the Company or its group companies in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and France during the subscription period and the members of the Company’s Board of Directors and management team (the “Personnel Offering”). Due to the oversubscription, the Board of Directors of the Company has decided to increase the number of Offer Shares from the preliminary maximum number of 1,525,000 Offer Shares to the abovementioned 1,775,000 Offer Shares so that the size of the Public Offering will be increased by 150,000 New Shares and the Institutional Offering by 100,000 New Shares. In the Public Offering, the Company will approve the subscriptions made by the investors (“Commitments”) in full up to 250 Offer Shares per investor for the shareholders registered on 14 June 2021 in the shareholder register maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd and up to 100 Offer Shares per investor for the other parties who submitted Commitments in the Public Offering. For the part of Commitments that exceed these amounts, the Company will approve 34.1 percent. In the Personnel Offering, the Commitments made by Enersense’s and its group companies’ personnel as well as the members of the Company’s Board of Directors and management team will be approved in full. Offer Shares that were unsubscribed in the Personnel Offering have been reallocated for subscription in the Public Offering.

The Company will receive gross proceeds of approximately EUR 16.0 million from the Share Issue. The total number of outstanding shares (the “Shares”) will increase to 13,397,729 Shares after the New Shares offered in the Share Issue are registered in the Finnish Trade Register on or about 22 June 2021. The Company received more than 2,000 new shareholders in the Share Issue.

The New Shares allocated in the Public Offering are recorded on the book-entry accounts of investors who have made an approved Commitment on or about the date of the completion decision related to the Share Issue, i.e. on or about 22 June 2021. In the Institutional Offering, the New Shares will be ready to be delivered against payment on or about 24 June 2021 through Euroclear Finland Ltd.

A confirmation on the approval of the Commitments and the allocation of the Offer Shares will be sent to all investors who participated in the Public Offering as soon as possible to the address specified in the Commitment. Investors who have submitted their Commitments as Nordnet’s customers through Nordnet’s online service will see their Commitments as well as allocation of Offer Shares on the transaction page of Nordnet’s online service. Any excess amount paid when submitting the Commitment is refunded to the provider of the Commitment to the Finnish bank account specified in the Commitment, or in case of Nordnet’s customers, on the cash account in Nordnet, on or about the fifth (5) banking day after the completion decision related to the Share Issue, i.e. on or about 30 June 2021. If the investor’s bank account is in a different bank than the place of subscription, the refund will be paid to a Finnish bank account in accordance with the payment schedule of the financial institutions, approximately no later than two (2) banking days thereafter.

The participants in the Personnel Offering have committed to a lock-up lasting 365 days from the date of the completion decision related to the Share Issue. The Company has committed to a lock-up lasting 90 days from the commencement of trading in the Offer Shares.

Trading in the Offer Shares is expected to commence on the official list of Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd on or about 23 June 2021. The ISIN code of the Shares is FI4000301585 and the share trading code is ESENSE.

Information to Distributors

For the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended (“MiFID II”); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) Chapter 5 of the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority’s regulations regarding investment services and activities, FFFS 2017:2, (together the “MiFID II Product Governance Requirements”), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any “manufacturer” (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the shares have been subject to a product approval process, where the target market for shares in the Company are: (i) retail investors and (ii) investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II (the “target market”). Notwithstanding the assessment of the target market, distributors should note that: the price of the shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The target market assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Offering. For the avoidance of doubt, the target market assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the shares in the Company. Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the shares in the Company and determining appropriate distribution channels.
