Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement published by ADS Maritime Holding Plc (the “Company”) on 3 October 2022 regarding the subsequent offering (the “Subsequent Offering”) of up to 34,190,476 existing ordinary shares in the Company held by B T Larsen & Co Ltd. (the “Offer Shares”) at a price of NOK 2.10 per Offer Share (the “Offer Price”).
The application period for the Subsequent Offering will expire at 16:30 hours (CEST) today, on 18 October 2022.
Correctly completed application forms must be received by Arctic Securities AS (the “Manager”) before the end of the application period. The allocation rights (“Allocation Rights”) that are not used to apply for offer shares in the Subsequent Offering before the expiry of the application period will expire and have no value.
If the market price of the Company’s shares exceed the Offer Price, the Allocation Rights will have financial value. If the market price of the Company’s shares is below the Offer Price, the Allocation Rights will not have financial value because it will be possible to buy shares in the market at lower prices than the Offer Price, subject to sufficient volume of shares being available for purchase.
For further information about the Subsequent Offering, please refer to the prospectus dated 3 October 2022 (the “Prospectus”). The Prospectus, including the application form in the Subsequent Offering, is available electronically at the Manager’s website: https://www.arctic.com/secno/en/offerings.
