Zealand Pharma increases its share capital as a consequence of exercise of employee warrants

Copenhagen, November 22, 2019 – Zealand Pharma A/S (“Zealand”) (NASDAQ: ZEAL) (CVR-no. 20 04 50 78), a Copenhagen-based biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of innovative peptide-based medicines, has increased its share capital by a nominal amount of DKK 158,225 divided into 158,225 new shares with a nominal value of DKK 1 each. The increase is a consequence of the exercise of warrants granted under several of Zealand's employee warrant programs. Employee warrant programs are part of Zealand’s incentive scheme, and each warrant gives the owner the right to subscribe for one new Zealand share at a pre specified price, the exercise price, in specific predefined time periods before expiration. For a more detailed description of Zealand’s warrant programs, see the company’s Articles of Association, which are available on the website: www.zealandpharma.com.

The exercise price was DKK 101.20 per share for 69,925 of the new shares, DKK 127.05 per share for 33,000 of the new shares and DKK 142.45 per share for 55,300 of the new shares. The total proceeds to Zealand from the capital increase amount to DKK 19,146,545.00.

The new shares give rights to dividend and other rights from the time of the warrant holder's exercise notice. Each new share carries one vote at Zealand’s general meetings. Zealand has only one class of shares.

The new shares will be listed on Nasdaq Copenhagen after registration of the capital increase with the Danish Business Authority. Following registration of the new shares, the share capital of Zealand will be nominal DKK 36,023,686 divided into 36,023,686 shares with a nominal value of DKK 1 each.

The amendment to Zealand’s Articles of Association entailed by the share capital increase has today been registered with the Danish Business Authority.
