Active Biotech's new share issue oversubscribed

2003-05-19

According to the preliminary figures, slightly more than 95 percent of the B shares offered have been subscribed through the exercise of subscription rights. In addition, new B shares corresponding to 25 percent of the total number of shares offered have been subscribed without the support of subscription rights, meaning that the new share issue is oversubscribed. As a consequence of the oversubscription of the new share issue, no new B shares will be allocated to MGA Holding AB in its role as guarantor.
Active Biotech's new share issue will be completed according to the following timetable:
Press release on final subscription level for new share issue
Approximately May 30
Notification of any allocation of shares not supported by subscription rights
Approximately May 26
Payment for shares allocated through subscription not supported by subscription rights
Approximately May 28
First day of trading in new B shares
