Launch of accelerated bookbuild offering of up to 1,300,000 existing shares in NTG Nordic Transport Group A/S

NTG Nordic Transport Group A/S (“NTG”) has received information of the launch of an accelerated bookbuild offering to institutional investors (the “Transaction”) of up to 1,300,000 existing shares in NTG, equivalent to approximately 5.7% of the existing shares outstanding in NTG, currently held by the shareholders Vindtunneln Holding AB, ML Invest Køge ApS, Holdingselskabet af 7. marts 2019 ApS and Jesper Ellegaard Petersen.

Danske Bank A/S and Nordea Danmark, Filial af Nordea Bank Abp, Finland are acting as Joint Global Coordinators and Joint Bookrunners and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken, Danmark, filial af Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ), Sverige, is acting as Joint Bookrunner in the Transaction (the “Managers”). A further announcement is expected to be made following completion of the bookbuilding and pricing of the Transaction.

NTG has indicated an interest in acquiring a total amount of 300,000 shares as part of the Transaction. The acquired shares will be held in treasury by NTG if the repurchase is completed.         The purpose of the repurchase will be to acquire minority shareholders’ shares in NTG subsidiaries against NTG-shares under the “Ring-the-Bell” concept, cover obligations arising under the share-based incentive program, and potentially for other purposes such as payment in relation to potential M&A transactions.

Assuming all the shares available in the Transaction are sold, Holdingselskabet af 7. Marts 2019 ApS will hold 4.4% of the shares in NTG after settlement of the Transaction.

Each of ML Invest Køge ApS, Vindtunneln Holding AB and Jesper Ellegaard Petersen has undertaken a 180-day lock-up towards the Managers, subject to certain customary exceptions. Furthermore, Holdingselskabet af 7. Marts 2019 ApS has undertaken a 90-day lock-up towards the Managers, also subject to certain customary exceptions.
