The completed subscription of the Rights Issue with and without support of subscription rights corresponds to approximately 88.3 percent of the total Right Issue, and the commitment of the underwriters provides the rest of the subscription of shares to have the maximum of the Right Issue 100 percent subscribed. The Rights Issue will thus provide the Company with approximately SEK 21.9 m before issue costs.
”I would like to thank our existing and new shareholders for their confidence in BoMill. We really look forward to an exciting future together. After successfully finalizing the development of our unique sorting equipment BoMill InSight, ready for our demanding customers, we have now started our commercial journey. This funding will enable us to further scale up our sales activities and open up new markets. We look forward to fully devoting our time to delivering on our business plan”, comments Andreas Jeppsson, CEO.

The total subscription has the following approximate breakdown:
|Subscribers||Number of shares||Issue amount(SEKm)||% of the maximum Rights Issue|
|Subscribed with support of subscription rights||38,636,240||18.2||83.0|
|Subscribed without support of subscription rights||2,467,265||1.2||5.3|
|Total subscribed with and without subscription rights||41,103,505||19.3||88.3|
