Extraordinary General Meeting - Active Biotech AB
The EGM approved the Board's decision to issue a debenture loan at a nominal amount of SEK 149,950,560 through the issue of 3,748,764 convertible debentures.
The convertible debentures shall convey the right for conversion into shares in the Company, each with a par value of SEK 10. Through conversion, the share capital in the Company may be increased by 37,487,640. The loan will carry 2 percent interest from January 1, 2005 and will mature for payment on June 30, 2009, if the debentures have not been converted by that time.
Preferential rights to subscribe for debentures shall be given to existing shareholders, with each nine shares currently held entitling shareholders to subscribe for one convertible debenture. In the event that not all convertible debentures are subscribed through preferential rights, the Board will decide on allocation within the framework of the total amount of the issue.
The conversion price will be SEK 40. The record date for participation in the issue will be November 15, 2004. Subscription and payment are to take place during the period November 19, 2004 to December 9, 2004.
