ERRATUM

First subscription phase pursuant to the agreement for the issue of tranche warrants granting rights to exercise bonds convertible into new ordinary shares with warrants entered into with NEGMA GROUP LTD on 16 October 2019

Minimum of €5.3M by 31 March 2020

In accordance with:

  • the delegation of power granted by the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting held by Spineway (the “Company”) on 3 October 2019;
  • the Board of Directors’ decision of 17 October 2019 approving the issue of 16 000 warrants (the “Tranche Warrants”) the exercise of which gives access to the issue of a maximum of 16 000 bonds convertible into new ordinary shares (the “Convertible Bonds”) with warrants (the “Warrants”), representing a bond issue for a maximum total par value of 40 000 000 euros, with cancellation of the shareholders’ preferential subscription right in favor of NEGMA GROUP LTD (the “Investor”);1

And, in order to finance equity investment plans and support its strategies, Spineway decided to launch the first phase of the Convertible Bonds subscription program as follows:

  • First subscription tranche of 24 December 2019 for 800 Tranche Warrants granting rights to:
    • 800 Convertible Bonds with a par value of 2,500 euros;
    • i.e., a total bond issue of 2,000,000 euros;
  • Second subscription tranche to take place by 31 March 2020, at the latest, for a minimum of 740 Tranche Warrants granting rights to:
    • 740 Convertible Bonds with a par value of 2,500 euros;
    • i.e., a total bond issue of at least 1,850,000 euros.

                         
The Company would like to specify the following:

  • The first subscription tranche for convertible bonds is accompanied by a Commitment Fee and compensation in favor of Negma Group Ltd, representing 2.85% and 0.875% respectively of the total possible commitment of 40,000,000 euros. The Company has the choice of paying in cash or via the issuance of additional convertible bonds and chose to grant 580 additional convertible bonds representing a total value of 1,450,000 euros to be added to the bond issue from the first subscription tranche.
  • The second subscription tranche may be revised upwards depending on the progress of the equity-investment or strategic plans under consideration.

As a reminder:

  • The Convertible Bonds have a par value of 2 500 euros each and are subscribed at 100% of par.
  • The Convertible Bonds have a maturity of 12 months from their date of issuance. In the event of default2, a significant adverse event3, a change in control or failure to deliver new shares in accordance with the Issuance Agreement, the Convertible Bonds that have not been converted shall be redeemed by the Company at par. Upon maturity, the Convertible Bonds shall be converted by their bearer into SPINEWAY shares. The Convertible Bonds shall not bear interest.
  • At its discretion, the Investor may, at any time, convert all or any of the Convertible Bonds into new ordinary shares (a “Conversion”). Upon a Conversion, the Investor shall determine the number of Convertible Bonds to be converted and the total par value to be converted (the “Conversion Amount”).

It is also recalled that details beyond the main characteristics of the Tranche Warrants, Convertible Bonds and Warrants are available on the Company’s website as well as in the press release dated 18 October 2019.
