Kongsberg Automotive Stock Exchange release 29. April 2020
Kongsberg Automotive refers to the invitation for an Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) on April 30 2020.
As has been widely published through the EGM invitation and investor presentations from the company, we have explored a capital raise driven by the strong expected decline in revenues due to the Corona virus/COVID 19 outbeak. We have received strong interest from prospective equity investors. However, some of these have requested more time in order to better understand Kongsberg Automotive. Thus, we did not complete a capital raise before our scheduled EGM. We have also recently made progress with alternative non-equity sources of liquidity. In addition to this, we are seeing gradually improving markets through the slow but ramping startups at many OEMs. We believe that the combination of some or all of the above factors may lead to a reduced need for equity capital than anticipated.
Consequently, Kongsberg Automotive cancels the EGM scheduled for April 30 2020. We expect to invite for a new EGM shortly with a revised agenda.
