Use of the revenue from the issue
BRASTER S.A. is planning to obtain PLN 54-63 million* from the issue of series I stocks within the Offering. The obtained funds will be earmarked for the following objectives, presented in accordance with their priority:
Expansion into foreign markets and day-to-day costs of Company management (PLN 45.6-47.1 million*)
After the publication of the current strategy for the years 2015-2021 in March, the Company is planning a debut in about a dozen foreign markets in the years 2017-2018. At the end of June/beginning of July, the Company informed of signing agreements related to the start of pilot projects in Ireland, Japan and Dubai. In the upcoming weeks, the Company is looking forward to signing further agreements in Portugal and the Netherlands. Apart from the pilot project countries, BRASTER would like to debut in Great Britain until the end of this year. If the consent of the FDA is obtained, the Company would like to enter the US market this year. It is also planning to start technical pilot projects in Canada, Brazil, China and India. BRASTER will enter more markets in 2018 (Germany, Korea). For the purpose of executing the expansion plan, it is necessary to incur expenditure, in particular on increasing the working capital, preparing and conducting the marketing campaigns, increasing the sales capacity, developing the IT infrastructure, adapting the Braster System to the requirements of the respective markets, as well as conducting the certification procedures and maintaining the operating capacities of the Company.
Until 2021, BRASTER is planning to have entered markets which guarantee access to over 21 million people from the specific target group. Until that time, foreign sales will have constituted over 90% of total sales.
Development of a global telemedicine platform (PLN 4.8-12.8 million*)
One of the strategic objectives of the Company is also to construct a global integrated telemedicine platform, apart from the Braster System, as well as telemedicine solutions and devices of other producers, characterized by global sales potential. The vision will be executed, among others, by potential acquisitions. The Company is interested particularly in producers of telemedicine devices, providers of e-health services and products and the companies that provide telemedicine services.
Purchase of a real property in Szeligi (PLN 3.5 million*)
In December 2016 BRASTER purchased a real property including a plot in Szeligi near Warsaw and the building situated on it, for the registered office of the Company and for conducting the process of manufacturing liquid crystal matrices. The real estate was purchased for the sale price of PLN 5.3 million. The payment was split into two instalments of: PLN 1.3 million and PLN 4 million. The Company paid the first instalment and some of the second one from a bank loan. The remaining amount of PLN 3.5 million is to be paid from the resources from the issue of new stocks.
