Catena Media plc (Nasdaq Stockholm: CTM) 

Catena Media plc (“Catena Media” or the “Company”) today announces the outcome of the subscription period following the publication of the financial report for the second quarter 2020 of the warrants 2020/2024 (“Warrants”) issued as part of the rights issue of units. In total, 1,596,668 Warrants, corresponding to approximately 3.9 per cent. of all outstanding Warrants (being approximately 3.4 per cent. of all Warrants issued as part of the rights issue), were used to subscribe for the same number of new ordinary shares in the Company. Payment for the new ordinary shares has been made in cash with a total amount of approximately SEK 4 million and by set-off of the Company’s hybrid capital securities (“Capital Securities”) to a total amount of approximately SEK 26.2 million.

Exercise of Warrants
During the subscription period following the publication of the financial report for the second quarter 2020, a total of 1,596,668 Warrants were used to subscribe for 1,596,668 ordinary shares in the Company, corresponding to approximately 3.9 per cent. of all outstanding Warrants (being approximately 3.4 per cent. of all Warrants issued as part of the rights issue). The subscription price for each share was SEK 18.90. 161,752 subscribed shares have been paid in cash, and an additional cash amount has been paid by holders paying by set-off to cover remaining parts of the subscription price (i.e. to the extent the subscription price has exceeded the nominal amount of the Capital Securities used for set-off), meaning that the Company will receive approximately SEK 4 million in total before issue costs. In addition, 1,434,916 subscribed shares have been paid by setting off the nominal amount of 261,828 Capital Securities (each with a nominal amount of SEK 100), meaning that a total nominal amount of SEK 26,182,800 of the Company’s Capital Securities have been used for set-off purposes. The total outstanding nominal amount of the Capital Securities will be reduced from SEK 659,592,500 to SEK 633,409,700 through a cancellation of the Capital Securities used for the aforementioned set-off in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Capital Securities.
