The Convertible Bond Private Placement is supported by Hexagon Composites ASA (“Hexagon Composites”), Mitsui & Co., Ltd.

The net proceeds from the Convertible Bond Private Placement will be used to support Hexagon Purus’ growth strategy, including its ongoing global capacity expansion program and delivering on customer commitments to reach its 2025 financial targets of NOK 4-5 billion in revenues and break-even EBITDA.

The settlement of the Convertible Bonds is expected to take place on or around 1 February 2024 and is conditional on an extraordinary general meeting (“EGM”) of the Company expected to be held on or about 11 January 2024 resolving to approve the issuance of the Convertible Bonds.
