Clavister Holding AB Executes Two Issues Of Warrants

STOCKHOLM, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Clavister Holding AB (the "Company") has in accordance with the authorization resolved on the Extraordinary General Meeting 11 December 2017 executed two  warrants issues of 3 062 608 warrants and 1 250 000 warrants respectively to Tagehus Holding AB ("Tagehus"). All issued warrants have been subscribed by Tagehus.

No 1 2017/2020 ("Series 1")

A total of 3 062 608 warrants of Series 1 have been issued to Tagehus with deviation of the shareholders' preferential rights. The reason for the deviation from shareholders' preferential rights is that the Company has undertaken to carry out the issue as part of an agreement between the Company and Tagehus regarding, inter alia, issuing of loans to the Company. The warrants are issued free of charge and each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one new share in the Company for a subscription price of SEK 20. The subscription price has been determined in the loan agreement between the Company and Tagehus. Payment for subscribed shared based on warrants shall be made through cash payment or by set-off claims, under the conditions stated in Chapter 14 Section 48 of the Swedish Companies Act.

The warrants may be exercised during a period from the registration of the warrants with the Swedish Company Registration Office up to and including 29 September 2020. It is set out in the loan agreement between the Company and Tagehus that Tagehus only may exercise 562,608 warrants of Series 1 insofar the strike price corresponds to accrued interest on the loan from Tagehus to the Company.

If all warrants of Series 1 are exercised, the Company's share capital will increase with SEK 306,260.80 and the number of shares with 3,062,608. The issue proceeds would in that case total SEK 61,252,160.

No. 2 2017/2020 ("Series 2")

A total of 1,250,000 warrants of Series 2 have been issued to Tagehus with deviation of the shareholders' preferential rights. The reason for the deviation from shareholders' preferential rights is that the Company has undertaken to carry out the issue as part of the mentioned loan agreement. The warrants are issued free of charge and each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one new share in the Company for a subscription price corresponding to the shares' quotient value at the time for subscription. The subscription price corresponds with the share's quotient value and has been determined in the loan agreement. Payment for subscribed shares based on warrants shall be made through cash payment or by set-off claims, under the conditions stated in Chapter 14 Section 48 of the Swedish Companies Act.

The warrants of Series 2 intends to compensate Tagehus for the dilution Tagehus may suffer if the Company makes a rights issue or private placement based on a subscription price lower than SEK 20 per share before 30 September 2020. Hence Tagehus may only exercise warrants of Series 2 to the extent necessary to compensate Tagehus for such dilution pursuant to the loan agreement. The warrants may be exercised during a period from the day of registration of the warrants with the Swedish Company Registration Office up to and including 29 September 2020.

If all warrants are exercised, the Company's share capital may increase with SEK 125,000 and the number of shares with 1,250,000.

GAIN Capital Launches AI-Enhanced Trading App, GetGo

New mobile app gives users access to financial market trading via smart signals and easy-to-use interface

BEDMINSTER, New Jersey and LONDON, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GAIN Capital Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: GCAP), a global provider of online trading services, today launched GetGo, an innovative financial trading app. The new mobile-only service uses a smart AI-enhanced algorithm to spot statistical trends in financial markets and provide users with compelling trading signals based on historical data.   

"GetGo is an intelligent and engaging way to trade financial markets, especially for those who are interested in taking advantage of shorter-term trading opportunities but are deterred by the apparent complexity and the time commitment associated with traditional trading," commented Glenn Stevens, CEO GAIN Capital. "We're excited about the significant opportunity this product offers in bringing AI-enhanced trading strategies to new audiences."

GetGo's proprietary algorithm is the result of several years' work and tens of millions of back tests by a team of quantitative finance experts. The program uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze millions of data points every hour to signal trading opportunities with strong historic track records.

GetGo will initially cover 40 markets, including FX, indices and gold. When the algorithm spots a pattern it recognizes it sends the user a signal through the app, which they can review, evaluate the potential upside and maximum downside for the trade, and decide whether to execute the trade. Users can also configure the number of signals notifications they receive based on various parameters, including signal strength, opportunity rating of the trade, and time of day.

Lex Webster, SVP Strategy, GAIN Capital added: "With GetGo we wanted to create a product that would generate high-quality trading signals based on data and statistics, while stripping back the complexities of traditional platform trading via a simplified mobile user experience. GetGo doesn't just identify dozens of new trade opportunities each day, it applies trade management rules to offer a potential upside greater than the maximum downside on each trade. These features include automatic position closure when the trade signal expires and free guaranteed stop losses on every trade. Users also have flexibility to either watch their trades unfold in real time, or set and forget with confidence that GetGo will manage their open positions." 

Transparency of performance is a key part of the GetGo offering. The app provides account level performance data as well as overall win/loss rates and best and worst signals. GetGo is now available in the United Kingdom on the Apple App Store and will be available in the Google Play Store in the coming months. The Company has plans to rollout GetGo in additional markets throughout 2018.
