Dutch Green Business Group N.V. (“DGB” or “the Company”) (Euronext: DGB), a leading reforestation and carbon offsetting company, is pleased to announce that it has completed the second tranche drawdown of EUR 500,000 under its previously announced EUR 6 million investment agreement (the “Investment Agreement”) signed between the Company and a consortium of Dutch-based accredited investors (the “Consortium”) (see press release of 31 May 2021).
The funds will be used to finance further growth of the Company and development of its carbon offsetting marketplace.
In accordance with the terms of the Investment Agreement, the Consortium will acquire an additional 481,605 ordinary shares of DGB (the “Ordinary Shares”) from the Company’s treasury shares.
- EUR 250.000 (50% of this Tranche) will be in listed Ordinary Shares for a price per share of EUR 1.10 (as determined by reference to the average of the lowest 5 trading day volume weighted average prices of Ordinary Shares on the Euronext Amsterdam Exchange over the 20 trading days immediately preceding the investment date of this second tranche).
- EUR 250.000 (50% of this Tranche) will be in non-listed Ordinary Shares at a discounted price of EUR 0.95 per share. Non-listed shares are not directly tradable on Euronext Amsterdam.
A total of 950,157 treasury shares have been transferred to the Consortium under the first and second tranche of the Investment Agreement, resulting in an average price per share of EUR 1,05. Upon completion of this second tranche share transfer, the Company still holds 1,299,842 treasury shares.
After careful consideration of the strategic, economic and financial aspects for all stakeholders involved, the board believes that long-term value creation for shareholders is better safeguarded when DGB explores different funding options and therefore terminates the Investment Agreement.
