Result of Placing

 

Ondo InsurTech plc (LSE: ONDO), a leading company in claims prevention technology for home insurers, is pleased to announce that further to the Company's announcement released at 4.35 p.m. on 13 May 2024 ("Launch Announcement") the Bookbuild has closed and the Company has conditionally raised £3.0 million through the placing of 21,428,571 Placing Shares to certain Institutional and other investors at the Issue Price.

 

The Issue Price of 14.0 pence per share represented a discount of approximately 3.45 per cent. to the closing price of 14.5 pence per existing ordinary share of 5 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") on 13 May 2024, being the last business day prior to announcement of the Placing.  The Placing Shares will represent approximately 24.7 per cent. of the Company's existing share capital.

 

In addition to the Placing, the Company intends to provide all Qualifying Shareholders with the opportunity to subscribe for an aggregate of up to 8,669,476 Open Offer Shares at the Issue Price, to raise up to approximately £1.2 million (before expenses), on the basis of 1 Open Offer Share for every 10 Existing Shares held on the Record Date.  Qualifying Shareholders subscribing for their full entitlement under the Open Offer may also request additional Open Offer Shares through an excess application facility (the "Excess Application Facility").

 

Shareholders should note that the Placing and Open Offer is conditional upon, among other things, the passing by Shareholders of the Resolutions at the General Meeting of the Company, expected to be held at 10.30 a.m. on 3 June 2024, Admission becoming effective and the Placing Agreement not being terminated in accordance with its terms.

Craig Foster, Chief Executive Officer of Ondo, said:

"We appreciate the support shown by a number of new institutional investors that have backed the fundraising, as well as the continued support from our existing institutional shareholders.

 

The proceeds of the Placing will enable us to accelerate and role out into the US, and maintain growth in other UK and Scandinavian markets.

 

We are pleased to also be able to offer the opportunity for all of our Shareholders to also participate in the Fundraise on the same terms as the participants in the Placing, through the Open Offer.

The Placing Shares, when issued, will be fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the Existing Shares of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid after the date of issue.

Information to Distributors

 

UK product governance

 

Solely for the purposes of Paragraph 3.2.7R regarding the responsibilities of UK Manufacturers under the product governance requirements contained within Chapter 3 of the FCA Handbook Production Intervention and Product Governance Sourcebook (the "UK Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the UK Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Placing Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such securities are: (i) compatible with an end target market of investors who meet the criteria of investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in the UK Product Governance Requirements; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by UK Product Governance Requirements (the "UK Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the UK Target Market Assessment, distributors (for the purposes of UK Product Governance Requirements) should note that: (a) the price of the Placing Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; (b) the Placing Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and (c) an investment in the Placing Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom.  The UK Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Placing.  Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the UK Target Market Assessment, Dowgate will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the UK Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of Chapter 9A or 10A respectively of the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Placing Shares.

 

Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Placing Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
