Oasmia announces private placement of new shares

Uppsala, Sweden, Oct. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The price of the New Shares will be determined through an accelerated book building procedure. The book building will begin on October 22, 2016.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement to strengthen the working capital as well as finance the continued operations and further development of additional human and veterinary products based on the XR17 technology.

The Private Placement is subject to, inter alia, a resolution by the Board of Directors of Oasmia, pursuant to the authorization granted by the annual general meeting held on September 26, 2016, to issue New Shares following the completion of the Private Placement book building procedure. The reason for deviating from the shareholders' preferential rights by conducting a directed new share issue is to broaden the shareholder base and that the costs of the procedure and the timing collectively and with sufficient strength indicate that it is in the Company's and thus the shareholders' interest that the issue is made with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights.
