BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes Plc: Directed share issue to shareholder


The Board of Directors of BBS-Bioactive Bone Substitutes Plc (“BBS” or the “Company”) has learned that in the subscription rights issue decided by the Company's Board of Directors on 26 May 2020, the subscription of 65,500 shares made and paid by one of the Company’s owners, Ahti Paananen, has not been registered, due to an error by Paananen's account manager, in the share allocation approved by the Board of Directors on 24 June 2020.

For the above reason, and based on the authorisation received from the Annual General Meeting on 5 April 2019, BBS's Board of Directors decided today, 26 June 2020, to issue to Ahti Paananen a directed share issue in which 65,500 new shares of the Company were offered for subscription by Paananen at a subscription price of EUR 4.20 per share, which corresponds to the subscription price used in the rights issue decided by the Board of Directors of the Company on 26 May 2020.

In the opinion of the Company's Board of Directors, placing Ahti Paananen on an equal footing with other shareholders constitutes a compelling financial reason for the Company to deviate from the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription right referred to in Chapter 9, Section 4 of the Companies Act.

As a result of the directed share issue, the number of the Company's shares will increase to a total of 6,571,525 shares.
