Press release

7 April 2022

 

Oneflow AB (publ) (”Oneflow” or the ”Company”), a fast-growing SaaS company within digital contract management, today announces the outcome of the Company’s offering of shares (the “Offering”) and the listing on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market (the “Listing”). The Offering attracted a very strong interest from both Swedish and international institutional investors, as well as the general public in Sweden and the Offering was substantially oversubscribed.

The Offering in brief

  • The Offering, excluding the over-allotment option, comprised 6,111,111 newly issued shares, corresponding to approximately SEK 275 million before transaction costs.
  • The number of shares in the Offering was increased, in accordance with the terms of the Offering, by 580,093 existing shares[1] (the “Upsize Option”), corresponding to the maximum amount of shares within the scope of the Upsize Option and approximately 9 percent of the total number of shares in the upsized Offering.
  • To cover any over-allotments in relation to the Offering, the Company has undertaken to issue up to 1,003,680 additional shares, corresponding to proceeds of a maximum of approximately SEK 45 million and a maximum of 15 percent of the number of shares in the Offering (the “Over-Allotment Option”).
  • The total value of the Offering, if the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full, amounts to approximately SEK 346 million before transaction costs.
  • As previously announced, the price in the Offering was SEK 45 per share, corresponding to a post-money value of all shares in Oneflow of approximately SEK 1,144 million assuming the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full[2].
  • The Offering was substantially oversubscribed and, as previously announced, Swedbank Robur Ny Teknik, Handelsbanken Fonder, Andra AP-fonden (AP2) and Humle Fonder (together the “Cornerstone Investors”) have subscribed for shares in the Offering of a total amount of approximately SEK 218 million.
  • Provided that the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full, the Offering (including the Upsize Option) will consist of 7,694,884 shares, which represent approximately 30 percent of the capital and votes in Oneflow after the completion of the Offering.
  • Trading in Oneflow’s shares on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market commences tomorrow on 8 April 2022 under the trading symbol (ticker) ”ONEF”. Settlement is expected to take place on 12 April 2022.

Set-off of bridge loan in connection with the Offering

In November 2021, the Company received a bridge loan of SEK 30 million. The bridge loan is described in more detail in the prospectus which the Company has prepared for purposes of the Offering. Lenders with loans totalling approximately SEK 17.6 million have, in accordance with the terms of the bridge loan, used the opportunity to set off their loans in connection with the Offering. As a consequence of the set-off, the Company will issue 391,782 new shares at the subscription price for the Offering, and the share issue is expected to be registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office on or around 12 April 2022.

Anders Hamnes, CEO and founder of Oneflow, comments:

“The first day of trading in our shares is an important milestone for Oneflow and we are all very happy and proud of the great interest we have been met with, both from the general public with nearly 4,000 subscription applications as well as from esteemed institutions. We now look forward to accelerating our geographical expansion plans, innovating the platform further and continue making the contract management process for all companies faster, easier, safer and truly digital. We warmly welcome the new shareholders to the next chapter in our growth journey.”

Lars Appelstål, Chairman of the Board of Oneflow, comments:

“Today, the conditions are strengthened for continued European expansion and growth. I enthusiastically look forward to, together with the board, management and employees, continue developing this exciting business as a public company and helping more firms digitalize and automate their contract management processes.”

 

About Oneflow

Oneflow develops, sells and implements digital contract management and automation systems. The Company believes that contract processing today, both in Europe and globally, is mainly characterized by manual and paper or file-based contract management, which result in a high degree of time and resource-intensive administrative work and high exposure to human errors. Through the Company’s software platform, companies are given the opportunity to digitally handle contracts before, during and after signing within one single platform in order to automate and streamline the contract management process. The Company mainly operates in the Nordic market, but its product offering has a global reach and, by 31 December 2021, the Company had 18,886 paying users in 24 countries[3]. Oneflow’s business model primarily consists of providing long-term subscriptions of products adapted to different types of customer needs and preferences through a SaaS model (Software-as-a-Service). Oneflow was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. The average number of employees was 83 during 2021, allocated in its three offices in Sweden, Norway and Finland.

The Company’s platform allows users to create, cooperate and work with contracts in real time, both internally within the organization and externally towards counterparties. Thereafter, the contract can be signed and archived in a structured and secure way. Contract data such as amounts, dates and deadlines are saved and can be filtered, summarized, aggregated and automatically integrated into other business systems and be used for notifications.

Oneflow assesses there are a number of main competitive advantages that distinguish the Company from its competitors and other players in the digital contract management market, which include:

  1. Oneflow has an end-to-end platform for all steps in the contract management process, i.e. before, during and after signing;
  2. Oneflow has a feature-rich and flexible HTML-editor that makes the contracts interactive, adaptable to different screen sizes and allows real-time editing; and
  3. The contract data in Oneflow is structured and built so that users are able to easily and efficiently find information and transfer contract data to other business systems automatically.

In the financial year ended 31 December 2021, Oneflow’s net sales amounted to SEK 43.6 million, which represents a compounded annual growth rate of 59 per cent since 31 December 2019. To continue the Company’s high and sustainable growth, Oneflow has developed strategic initiatives that mainly include the four components; innovation and product development, marketing and increased awareness of the product, increased sales to existing customers and geographical expansion to new markets. From a long-term perspective the goal is to, with the help of the Company’s growth initiatives, become one of the global market leaders in digital contract management.

Stabilization measures

In connection with the Offering, Danske Bank, acting as stabilization manager, may carry out transactions aimed at stabilizing, maintaining or in other ways support the market price of the Company’s shares at a level above what would otherwise prevail on the open market. Such stabilization transactions may be carried out on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market, the OTC market or otherwise, and may be carried out at any time during the period beginning on the first day of trading in the shares on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market and terminating no later than 30 calendar days thereafter. Danske Bank has, however, no obligation to carry out stabilization measures and there is no guarantee that stabilization measures will be implemented. Under no circumstances will transactions be carried out at a price higher than the price in the Offering.

Danske Bank may use the Over-Allotment Option to over-allot shares in order to enable stabilization measures. Stabilization measures, if implemented, may be suspended at any time without notice but must be suspended within the aforementioned 30-day period. Danske Bank must, by the end of the seventh trading day after stabilization measures have been carried out, in accordance with Article 5(4) in the EU Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052, announce that stabilization measures have been undertaken. Within one week after the end of the stabilization period, Danske Bank will, through the Company, announce whether or not stabilization was carried out, the date on which stabilization was initiated, the date on which stabilization was last carried out and the price range within which stabilization was carried out for each of the stabilization transactions.

Information to distributors

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended (\”MiFID II\”); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the \”MiFID II Product Governance Requirements\”), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any \”manufacturer\” (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Company\’s securities have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that such securities are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the \”EU Target Market Assessment\”). Solely for the purposes of each manufacturer\’s product approval process in the United Kingdom, the target market assessment in respect of the securities in the Company has led to the conclusion that: (i) the target market for such securities is only eligible counterparties, as defined in the FCA Handbook Conduct of Business Sourcebook, and professional clients, as defined in Regulation (EU) No 600/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (\”UK MiFIR\”); and (ii) all channels for distribution of such securities to eligible counterparties and professional clients are appropriate (the \”UK Target Market Assessment\” and, together with the EU Target Market Assessment, the \”Target Market Assessment\”). Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, Distributors should note that: the price of the Company\’s securities may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Company\’s securities offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Company\’s securities 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 Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Offering and the Listing.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II or UK MiFIR; 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 Company\’s securities.

Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Company\’s securities and determining appropriate distribution channels.
