Issuance and Conversion Guide
Eco Wave Power Global AB (Published) (“Eco Wave“) has submitted a request to delist its common stock from the Nasdaq First North Growth Market (“Nasdaq First North”). The formal request for delisting was submitted to Nasdaq First North on May 25, 2022 and Nasdaq First North has determined that June 13, 2022 will be the deregistration date on which Eco-Wave the common shares will be officially delisted in Sweden (“Delisting Date”). After the cancellation date, Eco-Wave only listed securities will be its American Depositary Shares (“ADS”) which trade exclusively on the Nasdaq Capital Market in United States under the symbol WAVE and CUSIP# 27900N103. Shareholders of Eco Wave are encouraged to convert their ordinary shares into ADS. Issuance costs for conversions of Eco Wave common stock is waived for ninety (90) days from the date the Company submitted its delisting request to Nasdaq First North. In other words, all holders of Eco-Wave ordinary shares will have 90 days from the May 25, 2022 and ending on August 23, 2022 convert their ordinary shares into ADS free of charge. Below is the detailed procedure for converting your ordinary shares into ADSs:
- The Common Shareholder’s broker must deposit the underlying Common Shares in electronic form in The Bank of New York Mellon’s (“BNYM”) custody account in Sweden. In order to determine the transaction date of the deposit, please use the actual date of the deposit as the transaction date. See below for custodian information:
Guardian’s name: Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (“SEB”)
SWIFT (BIC): ESSESSESS
Contact email address: [email protected]
Phone Number: +371 677 57310
For credit to: Bank of New York Mellon DR
Account number: 01001151658
To note: Bank of New York Mellon (“BNYM”) does not issue fractional ADSs. To avoid any delay in the conversion of Common Shares into ADSs, the Common Shareholder’s broker should deposit Common Shares equivalent to the issue of whole ADSs only. Any deposit giving rise to fractional ADSs will be rejected in its entirety by BNYM and BNYM will advise SEB accordingly. For the avoidance of doubt, BNYM will not issue whole ADSs and will return excess ordinary shares to the ordinary shareholder’s bank or broker.
- BNYM must have complete instructions as to where the ADSs will be delivered to the Depositary Trust Company (“DTC”). DTC serves as a clearing house to process and settle securities transactions. All deposits made with SEB must therefore include the following information regarding a) the broker receiving delivery of the ADSs from BNYM and b) the investor or ultimate beneficial owner: CPD Broker Name, DTC Broker Participant Number, Name of Investor or Ultimate Beneficiary and Account Number with DTC Broker. Providing complete information when filing will avoid any delays in completing the conversion process.
To note: Most of the largest brokers, traders and financial institutions in the country are DTC members or participants and each is assigned a DTC participant number. If the Common Shareholder’s broker is not a direct participant in DTC, it will settle trades through a DTC-participating settlement agent of the Common Shareholder’s broker. The non-DTC broker will not be able to settle securities trades. BNYM will deliver ADSs to a DTC Participant only.
- Upon receipt of SEB’s SWIFT confirmation of deposit and complete delivery instructions, BNYM will remit the ADSs to DTC for credit to the counterparty, who will then credit the investor’s or ultimate beneficiary’s account (thus, BNYM needs the information additional information regarding where the ADS will ultimately be credited). To avoid any delay in the delivery of the ADSs, it is useful for investors to advise their brokers to receive the delivery of the ADSs by BNYM to complete the conversion process.
- Issuance costs for conversions of Eco Wave common stock is waived for ninety (90) days from the date the Company files its delisting request with the Nasdaq First North Growth Market. This means that all shareholders will have 90 days from the May 25, 2022 and ending on August 23, 2022 convert their ordinary shares into ADSs free of charge. Thereafter, issue costs will be charged on conversions of common shares at the rate of $5 per 100 ADS or fraction thereof.
- Questions regarding the taxation of conversions should be addressed by the converting investor with their tax adviser.
