Company announcement - No. 35 / 2016
Copenhagen, 23 September 2016 - Zealand has increased its share capital with nominal DKK 45,457 divided into 45,457 new shares with a nominal value of DKK 1 each. The increase is a consequence of the exercise of warrants granted under three of Zealand's employee warrant programs. Employee warrant programs are part of Zealand's incentive scheme, and each warrant gives the owner the right to subscribe for one new Zealand share at a pre-specified price, the exercise price, in pre-specified time periods before expiration of the warrant.
For further description of Zealand's warrant programs, see the company's Articles of Association, which are available on its homepage: www.zealandpharma.com .
The exercise price is DKK 77.00 per share for 25,250 of the new shares, DKK 50.27 per share for 13,957 of the new shares and DKK 87.45 per share for 6,250 of the new shares. The total proceeds to Zealand from the warrant exercise and consequential capital increase amounts to DKK 3,192,437.50.
The new shares give rights to dividend and other rights from the time of the warrant holder's exercise notice. Each new share carries one vote at Zealand's general meetings. Zealand only has one class of shares.
The new shares will be listed on Nasdaq Copenhagen after registration of the capital increase with the Danish Business Authority. Following registration of the new shares, the total share capital of Zealand will be nominal DKK 24,587,032 divided into 24,587,032 shares with a nominal value of DKK 1 each.
The amendment of Zealand's Articles of Association entailed by the share capital increase has today been registered with the Danish Business Authority.
