Result of Open Offer
01 June 2022
Omega (AIM: ODX), the specialist medical diagnostics company focused on industry-leading Health & Nutrition and Global Health products, announces the results of its Open Offer.
On 6 May 2022, Omega announced its intention to raise gross proceeds of up to £4.1 million by way of a Placing, Subscription and Open Offer (together the "Fundraising"), all at an issue price of 4 pence per New Ordinary Share.
The Open Offer closed for acceptances at 11:00 a.m. on 31 May 2022. The Company has received valid acceptances from Qualifying Shareholders in respect of their Basic Entitlements in respect of 1,560,453 New Ordinary Shares and has also received applications from Qualifying Shareholders under the Excess Application Facility in respect of 1,317,323 New Ordinary Shares. In aggregate this totals 2,877,776 New Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 5.77 per cent. of the Open Offer Shares. Accordingly, Qualifying Shareholders who have validly applied for Open Offer Shares will receive their full Basic Entitlements as well as those applied for under the Excess Application Facility.
Accordingly, a total of 5,002,776 New Ordinary Shares will be issued at the Issue Price (subject to the conditions noted below), of which, 2,125,000 New Ordinary Shares will be issued pursuant to the Subscription and 2,877,776 New Ordinary Shares will be issued pursuant to the Open Offer (the "Open Offer Shares"). This brings the gross proceeds of the Fundraising (including the Placing announced 6 May 2022) to £2.20 million before expenses.
The Open Offer and Subscription remain conditional on the approval by Shareholders of the Resolutions at the Company's General Meeting to be held on 6 June 2022 (or any adjournment thereof), the satisfaction of certain conditions in the Placing Agreement and Admission of the New Ordinary Shares to trading on AIM occurring at or before 8.00 a.m. on 8 June 2022 (or such later date as the Company and finnCap may agree, being not later than 8.00 a.m. on 22 June 2022).
The Company will announce the results of the General Meeting as soon as practicable after the meeting concludes.
Capitalised terms not otherwise defined in the text of this announcement have the meanings given to them in the Company's circular dated 13 May 2022.
