STOCKHOLM, Sweden — The subscription period for Tilgin’s (STO:TILG) rights issue of shares and warrants has ended. The rights issue will raise SEK 72 million for Tilgin before issue and underwriting costs. Upon full exercise of the warrants, the company could raise a further SEK 67 million.
“The rights issue gives Tilgin the resources it needs to invest in development and sales of our world-leading IP technology,” says Ola Berglund, Tilgin’s CEO. “In the first quarter Tilgin presented strong order intake and record gross margins. Since then, the company has announced an initial order for the new Mood 400 product platform from a leading telecom operator in Southern Europe for their IPTV launch. This order has been won in co-operation with a global systems integrator. Additionally, a larger order has been received for IP residential gateways from a leading Nordic operator. Our leading products, strong customer relationships and partners such as Ericsson and Nokia Siemens will, together with this rights issue, enable Tilgin to return to growth and profitability.”
Tilgin has now completed its rights issue of shares and warrants, raising a total of SEK 72 million. The subscription period was March 31 – April 25, 2008. At the end of the period SEK 57,906,654 had been subscribed for using pre-emption rights and SEK 282,399 without pre-emption rights. The remaining part, representing about SEK 14 million, will thus be subscribed for by a number of underwriters based on separate underwriting agreements, as previously announced.

Shareholders are entitled to subscribe for one unit consisting of three new shares and two warrants of two different series for every three shares held.

The rights issue will raise SEK 72 million for the company. Upon full exercise of the warrants, the company could raise a further SEK 67 million.
