Why has Castellum resolved on a rights issue?

The Board of Directors of Castellum believes that the proceeds from the rights issue will strengthen the Company's financial position and enable the Company, in the current macroeconomic environment, to (i) manage balance sheet liquidity alongside repayment of upcoming near and mid-term bond maturities with adequate margins, (ii) maintain and reinforce the Company's credit profile and public credit rating and (iii) enable the Company to keep growing selectively through planned and future value-creating development projects.

Did any party enter into subscription undertakings or guarantee commitments for the rights issue?

Akelius Residential Property, Castellum's largest shareholder representing 13.4 per cent of the shares and votes in Castellum, supported the decision of the rights issue and undertook to subscribe for its pro rata share (13.4 per cent) of the rights issue. Akelius Residential Property did, additionally, enter into a guarantee commitment to subscribe, subject to certain terms, for an additional 28.5 per cent of the rights issue without subscription rights. Citigroup Global Markets Europe AG and Nordea Bank Abp, filial i Sverige entered into a guarantee commitment by way of an underwriting agreement, subject to customary terms, for the remaining part of the rights issue that was not covered by Akelius Residential Property's subscription undertaking and guarantee commitment, i.e. 58.1 per cent of the rights issue (divided equally between Citigroup Global Markets Europe AG and Nordea Bank Abp, filial i Sverige). Hence, 100 per cent of the rights issue was covered by subscription undertakings and guarantee commitments. The subscription undertakings and guarantee commitments were not secured through, for example, bank guarantees. 

The rights issue was, however, fully subscribed and the guarantee commitments were thus not utilised.
