Close of Bookbuild and Result of Placing

 

Autins Group plc (AIM: AUTG), the UK and European based manufacturer of the patented Neptune melt-blown material and specialist in the design, manufacture and supply of acoustic and thermal insulation solutions, is pleased to confirm that, further to the announcement earlier today, the bookbuilding process has now closed (the "Placing") and the Company has conditionally raised gross proceeds of £3.0 million through the Placing of 15,000,000 new ordinary shares at a price of 20 pence per share. The Placing Price represents a discount of 21.6% to the closing mid-market price of 25.5 pence per share on 18 November 2021. 

 

The Placing (details of which were provided in the Company's announcement published earlier today) is conditional on, inter alia, the passing of the Resolutions to be proposed at a General Meeting expected to be held at the Company's offices of Central Park Drive, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV23 0WE at 11.15 a.m. on 9 December 2021. A circular providing further details of the Placing and a notice convening the General Meeting will be sent to Shareholders on 22 November 2021 and will be available on the Company's website once published.
