Sosandar PLC

(" Sosandar " or the " Company " ) ( LON : SOS)

PrimaryBid Offer

 

Sosandar ( LON : SOS), the AIM quoted online women's fashion brand , is pleased to announce, a conditional offer for subscription via PrimaryBid (the "PrimaryBidOffer") of up to 2,500,000   new ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the Company ("New Ordinary Shares") at an issue price of 20 pence per New Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price"), to raise gross proceeds of up to £0.5 million.

The Company is also conducting a placing of new Ordinary Shares at the Issue Price by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process (the "Placing") as announced earlier today. In addition to this, one of the Company's directors intends to subscribe for 150,000 new Ordinary Shares (the " Subscription Shares ") on equivalent terms and conditions and at the same Issue Price as participants in the Placing (the " Subscription ").

The PrimaryBid Offer, the Placing and the Subscription are conditional on the new Ordinary Shares to be issued pursuant to the PrimaryBid Offer, the Placing and the Subscription being admitted to trading on the AIM market of London Stock Exchange plc ("Admission"). Admission is expected to take place at 8.00 a.m. on 28 May 2021. The PrimaryBid Offer will not be completed without the Placing also being completed.

The Company will use the net proceeds of the Placing, the Subscription and the PrimaryBid Offer to:

o  capitalise on the growth opportunity with its third party retail partners where currently on average only nine per cent. of Sosandar's total product range is available for sale. In particular, focus will be on investing in stock from the Autumn / Winter 2021 season onwards, including increasing both the number of styles and the number of units per style to be sold through the third party partner websites;

o  provide additional funding to engage with other third party partners in the UK and internationally; and

o  provide additional working capital and further balance sheet flexibility to support other incremental growth initiatives.

PrimaryBid Offer

The Company values its retail investor base and is therefore pleased to provide private and other investors with the opportunity to participate in the PrimaryBid Offer by applying exclusively through the PrimaryBid mobile app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. PrimaryBid does not charge investors any commission for this service.

The PrimaryBid Offer, via the PrimaryBid mobile app, will be open to individual and institutional investors following the release of this announcement. The PrimaryBid Offer will close on completion of the bookbuilding process. The PrimaryBid Offer may close early if it is oversubscribed.

The Company reserves the right to scale back any order at its discretion. The Company and PrimaryBid reserve the right to reject any application for subscription under the PrimaryBid Offer without giving any reason for such rejection.

No commission is charged to investors on applications to participate in the PrimaryBid Offer made through PrimaryBid.  It is vital to note that once an application for New Ordinary Shares has been made and accepted via PrimaryBid, an application cannot be withdrawn.

For further information on PrimaryBid or the procedure for applications under the PrimaryBid Offer, visit  www.PrimaryBid.com  or email PrimaryBid at [email protected] 

The New Ordinary Shares will be issued credited as fully paid up in cash and free from all encumbrances, and will, when issued and fully paid, rank pari passu in all respects with the existing issued ordinary shares in the capital of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid in respect of such ordinary shares after the date of issue.
