Maha Energy's initial public offering of MSEK 150 in connection with planned listing now also available for the general public in Denmark and Norway
As communicated through a press release on 30 May 2016, the board of directors of Maha Energy AB (publ) (the "Company" or "Maha"), has decided on an initial public offering of units in the form of new shares of class A and warrants giving right to subscribe for new shares of class A (the "Offering").
A prospectus as well as a supplementary prospectus have been prepared by the board of directors in connection with the Offering and approved by and registered with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Sw. Finansinspektionen) on 31 May 2016 and 7 June 2016 respectively. The supplementary prospectus constitutes a part of, and shall be read together with, the prospectus. One of the reasons for preparing a supplementary prospectus was the board of directors' decision to direct the Offering not only to Sweden but also to the general public in Denmark and Norway and that application for acquisition of units may also be made through Nordnet Bank AB which was communicated through a press release on 7 June 2016.
The application period started on 7 June 2016 and ends on 20 June 2016 (general public) and 21 June 2016 (institutional investors) respectively. Since the prospectus and the supplementary prospectus had not yet been passported to Norway or Denmark on 7 June 2016, the application period in these jurisdictions starts today.

- The Offering is directed to the general public in Sweden, Denmark and Norway as well as to institutional investors in Sweden and internationally.
- The Offering comprises units up to an amount of SEK 150 million with an option for the board of directors to increase the Offering with additional units up to an additional amount of SEK 25 million.
- Each unit consists of four (4) new shares of class A and one (1) warrant giving right to subscribe for one (1) new share of class A.
- The subscription price per unit shall be not less than SEK 19 and not more than SEK 21, corresponding to a subscription price of not less than SEK 4.75 and not more than SEK 5.25 per share. Nothing is to be paid for the warrants.

- Subscription for shares through exercise of warrants will be possible for a period of 18 months from the date of registration of the warrants with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.
The Offering is conditional upon the Company meeting First North's ownership distribution requirements and that no circumstances arise in which the Offering would be considered inappropriate by the board of directors of the Company. The Offering may thus be cancelled under such circumstances.
