In February hemCheck announced that the company had received over 1900 new shareholders through a new issue of units. Each unit consisted of one share and one subscription option rights of series TO 1. With subscription option rights issued free of charge the subscription price per unit amounted to SEK 6 per share. The issue volume of 28.2 million initially signed to approximately 59 MSEK, a subscription rate equivalent to approx. 209%. As the rights issue was oversubscribed, the Board decided to make full use of an over-allotted issue. The company thus initially raised approx. 30 MSEK prior to listing, and if all share issue costs and / or all outstanding subscription option rights will be used before Q1 2018, the Company will receive an additional 30 MSEK before issue costs.
The ticker symbol for the Company’s shares on First North is HEMC, the ticker symbol for subscription option rights is HEMC TO 1.

Possession of a series TO 1 subscription option rights entitles the owner to subscribe for one of the new shares at a price of SEK 6 for a period from 29 January 2018, up to and including 9 February 2018.
