The Company may, however, at any time resolve to close or extend the application period at its own discretion and for any reason without further notice. If the application period is shortened or extended, any other dates referred to herein may be amended accordingly. The minimum application and allocation amount in the Private Placement will be the NOK equivalent of EUR 100,000 per investor, provided that the Company may, at its sole discretion, allocate an amount below EUR 100,000 to the extent exemptions from the prospectus requirements pursuant to applicable regulations, including the Norwegian Securities Trading Act and ancillary regulations, are available. The allocation of Offer Shares will be determined at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors, in consultation with the Manager, following the expiry of the bookbuilding process, where the Board of Directors will focus primarily on inter alia existing ownership, timeliness of application, price leadership, relative order size, sector knowledge, perceived investor quality and investment horizon. The Board of Directors may, at its sole discretion, reject and/or reduce any applications. There is no guarantee that any applicant will be allocated Offer Shares. The Offer Shares allocated in the Private Placement will be settled through a delivery versus payment transaction on a regular T+2 basis by delivery of existing and unencumbered shares in the Company that are already listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange pursuant to a share lending agreement between the Manager, the Company, Jannerberg Invest AB (4,500,000 shares), Factis Invest AB (4,063,382), Windchange AS (2,500,000 shares) and Windchange AB (1,126,764 shares). The shares delivered to the subscribers will thus be tradable from allocation. The Managers will settle the share loan with new shares in the Company to be issued by the Company's Board of Directors pursuant to an authorization granted at the Company's annual general meeting held on 17 June 2020. The Company will announce the final number of shares placed and the final subscription price in the Private Placement in a stock exchange announcement expected to be published before opening of trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange tomorrow, Thursday 10 September 2020. The settlement date for the new shares is expected to be on or about Monday 14 September 2020. Completion of the Private Placement is subject to final approval by the Board. The Company has agreed with the Manager to a lock-up on future share issuances for a period of 90 days from the settlement date for the Private Placement, subject to customary exceptions. The Company's Board, members of the executive management and the largest shareholders have all agreed with the Manager to a lock-up on existing shareholdings for a period of 90 days from the settlement date for the Private Placement, subject to customary exceptions. The contemplated transaction will be carried out as a Private Placement in order to complete the share issue in today's market conditions in an efficient manner and to allow for participation from new investors. As a consequence of the transaction structure, the shareholders' preferential rights will be deviated from. The Board of Directors has considered the Private Placement in light of the equal treatment obligations under relevant acts and regulations, and is of the opinion that the proposed Private Placement is in compliance with these requirements. Following careful considerations, The Board is of the view that it will be in the common interest of the Company and its shareholders to raise equity through a private placement, in view of the current market conditions and the growth opportunities currently available to the Company. A private placement enables the Company to raise capital in an efficient manner with significantly lower execution risks compared to a rights issue, and the Private Placement is structured to ensure that a market based subscription price is achieved. Advokatfirmaet BAHR AS acts as legal advisor to the Company in connection with the Private Placement.
