The Board of Directors of Audientes A/S (“Audientes” or the “Company”), CVR 36047631, has reached an agreement with its existing bridge lenders (Selandia Alpha Invest A/S, Renewable Ventures Nordic AB and Mr. Gerhard Dal) to refinance the existing bridge loans originally secured in 2022, which will amount to DKK 5.85 million incl. both accrued interest until the refinancing and a refinancing fee of DKK 75,000 combined with a right for the lenders to convert the loans to shares at market price.


The new loans are maturing by the end of September 2024, with no interest and no instalments due until then. Loan givers may elect to convert the loan partly or wholly.


The lenders can convert the loan partly or wholly to equity in conjunction with:-

(2) with emissions of shares (directed and rights issues) to others with a market value of at least DKK 500,000, whether with or without pre-emptive rights for the Company's shareholders. In this situation, conversion will be made at the same price as the issue.


Furthermore, bridge loans secured on May 31, 2023, from the same lenders, amounting to in aggregate DKK 780.000 incl. interest accrued, that was incurred to fund the company’s operation and development, will be converted into shares to allow the Company to use its liquidity to operate and further develop the business rather than repaying loans, will be converted into shares to allow the Company to use its liquidity to operate and further develop the business rather than repaying loans. In addition, Nordic Grand Harmony Investment AB will convert debt of DKK 50,000 to shares.
