In accordance with an approval by the Extraordinary General Meeting, Inzile acquired 80% of the shares in Spanish QEV Tech Holdings (QTH). The purchase price was SEK 494 million and the access took place immediately. In connection with the acquisition, the Board of Directors decided on a directed share issue to eFashion Championship (eFC) by offsetting eFC’s entire claim against Inzile attributable to the transfer of shares in QTH. The subscription price was SEK 14.62 per share, which means that at the registration of the share issue, eFC owned 63% of Inzile’s outstanding shares. The acquisition was regarded as a reversed acquisition, meaning that eFC received the controlling interest of Inzile.

Inzile received an order, worth SEK 22 million, from Spanish Pinero Group regarding the development and delivery of battery systems for their existing vehicle fleet within Hotels & Resorts. The order was delivered during Q4 2021 and Q1 2022 to Pinero’s facilities in the Caribbean.

The bridge loan was available as of end of November, while the credit is available when Inzile calls for it. The financing is being used for Inzile’s working capital need until new capital has been raised.
