The board of directors of OmniCar Holding AB (“OmniCar”) or the “Company”) has resolved, based on authorisation from the general meeting, to carry out an issue of shares of a maximum of approximately MSEK 20 with preferential rights for existing shareholders (“the Rights Issue”). Those who are registered as shareholders of OmniCar on the record date, June 19, 2023, will receive seven (7) subscription rights for each share held in OmniCar. The subscription rights entitle the holder to subscribe for new shares in the Rights Issue, with four (4) subscription rights entitling the holder to one (1) new share in OmniCar. The subscription price amounts to SEK 0.12 per share. The Rights Issue aims to enable the expansion of OmnicarService, and to support further growth and development of the Company’s operations and the Company’s goals of profitability. The Rights Issue is secured to approximately 88 percent through subscription undertakings and guaranteecommitments.
The Rights Issue in summary:
Background and reasons
OmniCar has undergone a transformative journey over the past six months, shifting its focus entirely towards realizing the full potential of its operation, OmnicarService – the Mobile Car Service Fleet. As previously communicated in February 2023, the Company’s plan for 2023 revolves around four strategic business areas: “Operation Optimization,” “B2B Partnerships,” “Customer Success,” and “Clear Value Proposition.” These areas collectively aim to enhance operational efficiency and bolster the Company’s chances of success. The Company is already making significant progress in implementing these initiatives and anticipate noteworthy improvements on a quarterly basis even though the turnover is not advancing as swiftly as initially anticipated.
Based on the overall good results in the Company’s transformation journey the board of directors has decided to acquire additional funding to secure the path towards profitability and prepare OmniCar for expansion.
Assuming the Rights Issue is fully subscribed, the Company expects to generate approximately SEK 20 million in issue proceeds, before deducting issue costs.
Mikkel K. Christensen, CEO of OmniCar Holding AB, stated:
“We provide a unique service with high customer satisfaction, 4.9 out of 5. By working smarter with a high degree of digitalization we will create a profitable business and continue to give our customers a convenient car life. I look forward continuing delivering on our strategy enabling profitability and expansion possibilities”
Petra Bendelin, Chairman of the board of OmniCar Holding AB, added:
“The strategy is solid, and the customers embrace the services offered by OmniCar. I am pleased with the decision to conduct the right issue as we are providing all existing investors with the opportunity to participate on equal terms. I am particularly delighted by the commitment demonstrated by larger shareholders, my fellow board members, and the CEO, as they have confirmed their participation in the issue. This not only secures approximately 88 % of the total amount but, more importantly, reflects their trust in the company.”
Prior to the commencement of the registration period, the Company will organize a Q&A session where investors can seek clarification and obtain answers to any questions they may have.

Summary of the Rights Issue
The right to subscribe for shares is granted with preferential rights to the Company’s shareholders. For each existing share held in the Company on the record date June 19, 2023, seven (7) subscription rights are obtained. Four (4) subscription rights entitle to subscription of one (1) share during the period June 21 – July 5 2023. The subscription price for one (1) share is SEK 0.12.
In cases where all shares are not subscribed for with preferential rights (i.e. with the support of subscription rights), the board of directors shall, within the framework of the highest amount of the issue, decide on allotment of shares subscribed for without subscription rights, whereby allotment shall primarily be made to those who have also subscribed for shares with subscription rights and, in the event that these cannot receive full allotment, allotment shall be made in proportion to their subscription by subscription rights and, if this is not possible, by drawing lots, and allotment in the alternative shall be made to others who have subscribed for shares in the issue without the support of subscription rights and, in the event that they cannot receive full allotment, allotment shall be made in proportion to the number of shares subscribed for by each and, if this is not possible, by drawing lots, and ultimately to guarantors in accordance with guarantee contracts.
Upon full subscription in the Rights Issue, the Company will receive approximately MSEK 20 before issue costs.
The complete terms and conditions for the Rights Issue and information about OmniCar will be presented in the issue memorandum regarding the Rights Issue that will be published on or around June 20, 2023, and will be available on OmniCars website, www.omnicarinvestor.com.
