Cleantech Invest Oyj: Cleantech Invest makes a directed share issue to accelerate growth

Cleantech Invest Plc Company Announcement         03 February 2017 at
15:30 EET

Based on the authorization granted by the Extraordinary General
Meeting on 9 March 2016 the Board of Directors of Cleantech Invest
Plc ("Cleantech Invest" or the "Company") has resolved on a directed
share issue (the "Offering") of approx. 2.6MEUR to institutional
investors and investors of strategic value to the Company.

In the Offering, 933,000 new class A shares (the "Offer Shares") were
subscribed at the subscription price of EUR 2,74 per share, which
equals to the volume weighted average price of Cleantech Invest Plc's
class A share on First North Finland during the time period between
23 January 2017 and 1 February 2017 and a discount of 10%. The entire
subscription price of the Offer Shares will be recorded in the
reserve for invested unrestricted equity. The Offer Shares represent
approximately 4,1% of the outstanding shares in the Company after the
Offering.

The reason for the Offering is to accelerate growth in current
portfolio and potentially investing in new early stage companies.
Having the ability to do this is in the interest of Cleantech Invest
shareholders as it enhances the upside potential of the company as
well as decreases the risk in current holdings.

Cleantech Invest Chairman of the Board Lassi Noponen:

"Since 2010 we have built Cleantech Invest largely with the support of
private shareholders and we are thankful and exited for their
continued support. We are equally exited to welcome our new
institutional shareholders into Cleantech Invest. In addition to new
financial resources, adding major mutual funds to our shareholder
register will elevate Cleantech Invest's credibility both as an
investment target as well as in its pursuit for leadership in
cleantech acceleration, to a new level. We have always carefully
considered our fund raise steps. This measured directed share issue
will enable us to pursue strategies for long term value creation for
the benefit of all of our shareholders."

Cleantech Invest CEO Alexander Bigge Lidgren comments:

"During the last two years several of our companies have shown
remarkable revenue growth, increasing our confidence in their ability
to become global category leaders. This fundraise increases our
ability to support the growth of our current portfolio as well as
potentially invest in new super stars in their early stages. We are
especially happy that some of the investors in this share issue are a
result of connections made through our pop-up offices. While not
underestimating the new growth challenges that we know will appear we
face the coming year with great enthusiasm and a large portion of
joy!"

Cleantech Invest will apply for listing of the Offer Shares on First
North Finland and First North Sweden.
