 "The energy efficiency market is being transformed. The gradual disappearance of fossil fuel-based systems is leading to a complete overhaul of buildings' energy equipment, making heat pumps the most suitable alternative for new uses and regulatory constraints. AIRWELL GROUP has long been at the heart of this transformation, making heat pumps the focus of its offering. Thanks to past investments and the strategic changes we have made over the last 3 years, we aim to become the French leader in sustainable climate and thermal solutions for the construction industry. After a successful trial run on the ACCESS segment of the stock market, our Group is now ready to enter a new phase in its history. In a market that is expected to grow strongly over the next 10 years, we reiterate our intention to double in size and achieve revenues of €100m by 2025,"says Laurent Roegel, CEO of the AIRWELL GROUP.

AIRWELL GROUP (EURONEXT Access Paris, MLAIR), creator of intelligent energy ecosystems, announces the launch of a €5.2 m capital increase (100% offer) followed by a transfer of its shares from EURONEXT Access Paris to EURONEXT Growth® Paris with a view to underpinning its ambitious development plans and offering a complete range of climate and thermal solutions for the residential and office markets.

EURONEXT approved the proposed transfer to EURONEXT Growth® Paris on 13th of June 2023 and a notice was published on 14th of June 2023.

AIRWELL GROUP, A LEADING ENERGY EFFICIENCY PLAYER

AIRWELL is a leading French brand operating in 80 countries, specialising in the creation of intelligent energy ecosystems. With the momentum of the energy transition, the Group has positioned itself in the heat pump market, the focus of its growth strategy. While only 7% of homes in France were fitted with heat pumps in 2020, by 2050, 20 million homes are expected to be equipped, representing 60% of all buildings.[1].

The Group's strategy is to constantly address its customers' concerns, in particular by optimising their energy consumption, making greater use of renewable energies and reinventing ways of using energy.

To keep pace with the fast-changing market, the Group has developed a comprehensive offering based on a fabless industrial model and optimised logistics, making it more agile and better able to focus investment on R&D.

The Group's transformation is reflected in its three product offerings:

  • A B2B offer distributed in France and abroad through the sale of Air/Air and Air/Water heat pumps;
  • An "Airwell Academy" training and certification programme for installers to support the industry and meet the growing demand for labour in the HVAC sector. With this in mind, the Group has opened two training centres: the first in Valence (62) in 2014 and the second in Montigny-Le-Bretonneux (78) in 2023;
  • A distinctive range of services for the residential and commercial markets:
    • Ma Maison Hybride, an innovative, intelligent, connected eco-thermal service for private customers, combines the use of heat pumps with photovoltaic panels to produce and optimise energy consumption via the AirHome application,
    • The Leezy offer, an energy leasing solution for the commercial and corporate sectors, meets the challenges of energy conservation and regulatory compliance while promoting customers' CAPEX to OPEX policy, with the emergence of a Heat As A Service offer.

A NEW STAGE TO FUND SWIFTER GROWTH

The AIRWELL GROUP plans to strengthen its balance sheet to finance its current and future growth. To recap, the company carried out an initial reserved capital increase of €1.5m with Norwegian family offices and also issued €5m in bonds (maturing in 2028) subscribed by France Economie Réelle, a fund managed by DELTA AM, in early 2023.

Today, AIRWELL GROUP is conducting a capital increase through a public offering of €5.2 million (for 100% of the shares offered) with a view to:

  1. Boosting its marketing investments and sales presence outside mainland France through external growth (distributors) and organic growth;
  2. Continuing to invest in Ma Maison Hybride and its initiatives in data and AI for efficient energy management in buildings;
  3. Develop the AIRWELL Academy system to train partner installers;
  4. Increasing the appeal and liquidity of the share on the stock market.

A STRONG BRAND IN FRANCE AND ABROAD


TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Nature and number of shares for which registration is requested and shares offered:

The Company's shares to be listed on the EURONEXT Growth® market are:

  • all the ordinary shares making up the share capital, i.e. 4 873 542 shares with a par value of
     €0.05 each, fully subscribed and paid up and of the same class (the "Existing Shares");
  • a maximum of 1 000 000 New Shares to be issued as part of a capital increase in cash with cancellation of preferential subscription rights, by public offering, which may be increased to a maximum of 1 100 000 New Shares in the event of exercise in full of the Extension Clause, as this term is defined below, and increased to a maximum of 1 210 000 New Shares in the event of exercise in full of the Extension Clause and the Greenshoe Option (the "New Shares").

The New Shares are ordinary Company shares, all of the same class. They will be deemed to be equivalent to the Existing Shares as soon as they are issued. They will carry dividend rights
from their date of issue.

Offer structure:

The offer of the New Shares will be made as part of a global offer (the "Offer"), comprising:

  • A public offering in France in the form of an open price offer, mainly aimed at natural persons (the "Open Price Offer" or the "OPO"), it being stipulated that:

Orders will be divided according to the number of shares requested:

  1. A1 order fraction (from 1 share up to and including 500 shares) and A2 order fraction (over 500 shares) ;
  2. A1 order fractions will be given preference over A2 order fractions if not all orders can be fully satisfied;
  • A global offering primarily intended for professional investors or investors treated as professionals in France and certain other countries (with the notable exception of the United States of America, Australia, Canada and Japan) (the "Global Placement ").

If there is sufficient demand for the OPO, the number of New Shares offered in response to the orders issued as part of the OPO will be at least equal to 15%the total number of New Shares offered before any exercise of the Extension Clause and the Greenshoe Option.

Revoking orders:

Subscription orders made by individuals and received via the Internet as part of the public offering will be revocable, via the Internet, until the close of the public offering (26 June 2023 8.00 p.m. (Paris time)). Individuals should contact their broker to check whether orders transmitted via other channels can be revoked and under what conditions, or whether orders transmitted via the Internet can be revoked by means other than the Internet.

Those wishing to take part in the ??O must place their orders with an authorised broker in France no later than 26 June 2023 5.00 p.m. (Paris time) for over-the-counter subscriptions and 8.00 p.m. (Paris time) for online subscriptions.

Subscription price for the New Shares:

The price of the shares offered in the OPO will be equal to the price of the shares offered in the Global Placement (the "Offer Price"). The Offer Price may fall within a range of between €4.80 and €5.20 per New Share, as determined by the Chief Executive Officer on 14th of June 2023 in accordance with the powers delegated to him by the Board of Directors of the Company at its meeting on 2 June 2023 (the "Indicative Range"). This information is provided for information purposes only and is without prejudice to the Offer Price, which may be set outside this Indicative Range.

In the event of a change in the upper limit of the Indicative Price Range mentioned above or if the price is set at more than €5.20 per share, orders issued as part of the Open Price Offer may be revoked for at least three trading days.

The Offer Price is expected to be set on 27th of June by the Chief Executive Officer in keeping with the provisional schedule. It will be calculated by comparing the shares offered with the applications made by investors in the Global Placement, using the technique known as "book building" as established by professional practice.

Extension clause:

Depending on the level of demand expressed in the Offer, the initial amount of the Offer may, at the Company's discretion, be increased by 10%, i.e. a maximum number of 100 000 New Shares (the "Extension Clause").

Greenshoe Option

In order to cover possible oversubscription, the Company will grant Invest Securities (the "Stabilising Agent"), in the name and on behalf of the Lead Manager and Bookrunners, an option to purchase up to a maximum of 10% the initial number of New Shares to be issued under the Offer, plus any New Shares resulting from the exercise of the Extension Clause, i.e. up to a maximum of 110 000 Additional New Shares (the "Greenshoe Option").
