Cell Impact AB (publ) announces that the Board, with the support of the share issue authorization from the Annual General Meeting on April 11, 2019, today has resolved upon a directed share issue of series B shares with a value of approximately SEK 5 million. The share issue is directed to the Japanese industrial group Nakanishi Metal Works Co. Ltd. (NKC), which has entered into a subscription undertaking of approximately SEK 4.5 million, and Mr. Shigeru Nakagawa, Executive Officer, NKC New Business Division, who has entered into a subscription undertaking of approximately SEK 0.5 million.
The reason for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential right is to add new owners of strategic importance to the company, and through the issue, the cooperation between Cell Impact and NKC is clarified and strengthened in the framework of international business development. Accordingly, in the Board's opinion, there has been predominant reasons to deviate from the shareholders' preferential right to the benefit of the company and the shareholders in the long term.
-"It is gratifying that, through this new issue, we have the opportunity to initiate a deeper collaboration with a company such as NKC," says Pär Teike, CEO of Cell Impact. "NKC has a rich history as a supplier of industrial solutions to both the Japanese and international automotive industry, and we hope that we together can help accelerate the introduction of environmentally friendly fuel cell technology on a broad scale."
