No. 556952-8671, has proposed that the annual general meeting resolves on a new share issue with pre-emption rights for existing shareholders of approximately 9,864,500 MSEK (the “Rights Issue”). The purpose of the Rights Issue is to secure financing to implement the activities that are included in the company’s business plan in the following twelve months. The notice for the annual general meeting will be announced separately.

Existing shareholders registered in the share register in Goobit Group on October 25, 2023, will have preferential rights to subscribe for new shares. One (1) existing share held on the record date will entitle to one (1) subscription right, which in turn entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) new share.
Allocation of Shares
If not all new shares are subscribed for with pre-emption rights, the board of directors will determine the allocation of new shares in accordance with predefined criteria detailed in the notice to the general meeting and the official board's proposal.
Subscription and Payment Period
The subscription period will run from October 27, 2023, to November 10, 2023. Payments for new shares based on subscription rights can be made via cash or set-off against claims during this period. The board reserves the right to extend the subscription and payment period.
Participation by existing shareholders
The board has received an expressed willingness of existing shareholders to subscribe for shares in the Rights Issue, corresponding in total to approx. 60 percent of the estimated total subscription amount of the Rights Issue.
The new shares will entitle holders to dividends from the first record date for dividend payments following registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and recording in the share register kept by Euroclear Sweden AB.
