The subscription period for the Offer Shares (the "Subscription Period") will commence on 18 May 2022 at 10:00 Finnish time (09:00 Swedish time), and it is expected to end on 3 June 2022 at 16:00 Finnish time (15:00 Swedish time) in Finland and on 1 June 2022 in Sweden at 16:00 Finnish time (15:00 Swedish time).
  • In addition, BBS will offer each subscriber of the Offer Shares one (1) newly issued warrant of series TO1 and one (1) newly issued warrant of series TO2 for each eight (8) shares subscribed and paid for in the Offering.

  • Net proceeds from the Offering will be used inter alia for successful completion of the ongoing CE marking application process for BBS’ bone implant ARTEBONE® Paste, for initiating the commercialisation of ARTEBONE® Paste and for paying the loan repayments and interest.

Reasons for the Offering and use of proceeds

The Company estimates that it will spend the net proceeds received from the Offering and the Warrants on implementing the Company’s business plan, strengthening the working capital as well as on debt servicing and payments, including, but not limited to, the following:

1.The main intended use of proceeds is to successfully complete the ongoing CE marking application process for BBS’ bone implant ARTEBONE® Paste including the ISO 13485 certification of the Company’s quality system as part of the CE marking. The proceeds will also be used for product development, maintaining the patent portfolio and developing production as well as for the FDA approval application process for obtaining a marketing authorization for ARTEBONE® Paste in the U.S. market.

2. For initiating the commercialisation of ARTEBONE® Paste (approximately EUR 0.7 million).

3. For paying the loan repayments and interest of EUR 0.7 million, which will be repayable in the next 12 months.

In addition, the subscription undertaking of approximately EUR 150,000 given by RiverFort in connection with the Offering includes a provision, based on which the Company shall use a sum corresponding the subscription price paid by RiverFort in the Offering for repayment of RiverFort’s loan receivable from the Company.

The above-mentioned estimation on the use of proceeds is based on the assumption of maximum proceeds being raised in the Offering.

The above presented estimate on the use of proceeds is based on the assumption that the Offering is fully subscribed. The estimated proportions of the use of proceeds may vary depending on the amount of the capital raised and the business development.
