- Completed $8,000,000 Gross Proceeds Underwritten Public Offering to Support Growth strategy.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, February 16, 2022 – Splash Beverage Group, Inc. (NYSE American: SBEV) (“Splash” or the “Company”), a portfolio company of leading beverage brands, today gave an update on its previously announced pricing of an underwritten public offering of its commons stock, pursuant to a “shelf” registration statement filed with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission on October 8, 2021 (the “Offering”).
As previously announced the Company will sell 2,000,000 shares in the Offering for gross proceeds of approximately $8 million. The Company has also granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 300,000 shares of common stock at the public offering price, less the underwriting discounts and commissions, to cover over-allotments, if any. The Offering is expected to close on or about February 17, 2022.
“We’re delighted to have priced this equity offering, which will strengthen our balance sheet while providing additional liquidity to finance our accelerating growth,” said Robert Nistico, Splash Beverage Group’s Chairman and CEO.
“This is the first effort to raise capital under this registration statement,” said Nistico. “We’ve taken a very measured and disciplined approach to accessing the shelf,” Nistico continued, “deciding only to raise an amount we deemed necessary to finance our current operations and inventory needs, and provide flexibility for us to take advantage of opportunities in the sectors that we participate in. We’ve entered into numerous distribution agreements and added meaningful retail partnerships over the past few months, and we are experiencing an increase in demand for our products. This additional capital will support our efforts to provide the necessary inventory to fuel that growth.”
The Company’s shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-259865) was declared effective by the SEC on October 8, 2021.
