Meltron secures bridge financing 7 MSEK

Meltron has now made an agreement with one of its larger shareholders, who participated significantly in the issue end of last year and who also is holding a significant number of warrants. Per the agreement, the shareholder makes a bridge loan of 700 k€ available for two drawdowns in the period February to May. At the end of the maturity of the warrants of the latest issue (TO3), the loan will be off-set for shares at a price which is the lower of the warrants price (0,85 SEK/share) and the average share price during the period.

- This financing now ensures that Meltron will be able to build up the sales and develop the company according to plan, says Ville Sistonen, CEO of Meltron. We see a lot of progress on a number of fronts and hope to achieve tangible results in the near future. We also see the financing as a vote of confidence from this larger shareholder.
