The recapitalisation is carried out to strengthen ITAB’s capital structure to reduce the financial leverage of the group, to invest in the One ITAB transformation plan and to provide sufficient headroom to the business given the Covid-19 situation.
The recapitalisation entails that the equity is strengthened by approx. SEK 868 million by a rights issue of SEK 768 million and a set-off issue of SEK 100 million and entails further that Aeternum Capital becomes ITAB’s largest shareholder with a holding of approx. 25 percent of the shares. First day of trading in the new class B shares issued as a result of the recapitalisation is estimated to be 22 March 2021.
