Company Announcement No. 1-2020
Copenhagen, November 25, 2020

DecideAct A/S has applied for admission to trading on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Denmark. The offer period runs from 26 November to 9 December 2020, and the offer price is DKK 8.15 per share, corresponding to a pre-money valuation of DKK 42 million. The maximum offer of new shares is DKK 18.5 million, of which 36% have been signed before the offer period opens.

About DecideAct A/S

DecideAct is a dedicated provider of solutions that move manual implementation and follow-up of strategy to a cloud-based Strategy Execution Management platform. By rethinking the way strategy is implemented, DecideAct has created a groundbreaking tool that can help companies and organizations achieve their strategic goals. DecideAct’s vision is to modernize strategic leadership through technology.

Strategy Execution Management is a new category—and it is interesting for several reasons: First, because all companies work with strategy. Second, because most companies find that their strategies fail during implementation. And third, because most companies do not have a digital solution for strategy implementation.

The founders of DecideAct have spent the past five years developing and refining the cloud solution together with customers in the Icelandic test market. Based on sales experience in the Icelandic test market, the sales potential in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland alone is more than 500 customers over the next three years. If just half is landed, it will yield an annual subscription turnover of 56.9 million Danish Kroner in 2023.

The cloud solution was created for the new reality, where companies work together at a distance. In other words: the timing is right. It is DecideAct’s ambition to continue to set the standard in the category while the market continues to grow substantially.

SUMMARY OF THE OFFERING

The expected gross proceeds are DKK 7 – 18.5 million.

  · Only new shares are offered

  · The offer price is DKK 8.15, corresponding to a pre-money valuation of DecideAct before the offer of DKK 42 million.

  · The tender period runs from 26 November to 9 December 2020.

  · Publication of the result of the offering is expected to take place on December 11 and the first trading day is expected to be December 16.

 

  · Offer price: DKK 8.15 per share of nominally DKK 0.10. Number of shares before the offer: 5,290,539

  · 36% of the maximum offer of DKK 18.5 million has been signed before the offer period opens.

Reason for the offering

DecideAct is seeking funds to drive its marketing and sales capability. The Company believes that it is in a market situation that is an early stage Product Life Cycle with a fairly low market maturity, it is important to be ahead of the curve and thus enjoy as much first mover advantage as possible. DecideAct’s aim is not only to scale its sales and support functions, but also to allocate resources to increasing awareness in the market. The Founders will draw on their vast international experience to spread the word, but they have also teamed up with some of the world’s prominent thought leaders when it comes to evangelizing modern Strategy Execution Management.

Financial performance and expectations

For the past two years, test marketing has been conducted in Iceland to test interest and purchase cycle. With a relatively modest effort, DecideAct has produced extremely good results that have also indicated the potential in the Nordic markets in the coming years. DecideAct anticipates that the client base will add up to at least 250 licenses by 2023 corresponding to an MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue) of approximately DKK 5 million and a corresponding ARR (Annual Recurring Revenue) of approximately DKK 57 million, which is more than 10 times the expected MRR at the end of 2020.
