With reference to the first tranche of the bond issue, there is a residual of 10 tranches of bonds still to be issued, each with a nominal value of Euro 500 thousand, for a total amount of Euro 5.0 million.

Nice & Green is an international investor specializing in growth and development finance dedicated to listed companies with a substantial active portfolio of transactions on medium and small-cap companies. Nice & Green, after investing in Switzerland, Sweden, France and Spain, decided to invest in high-tech companies and high development potential also in Italy and Itway represents their first transaction with an MTA-listed company.
The convertible bond is interest-free and bonds will not be listed on any regulated market. The issue of this tranche of convertible bonds does not require the publication of any offer prospectus.
The conversion ratio – indicative of the number of Itway shares to be assigned to the Investor in case of conversion of the Bonds – will be determined on the basis of the equivalent received by Itway for each tranche of Bonds divided by the Conversion Price.
The bonds last 12 months from the date of issue and, in the event of a non-claim by the maturity date, they will be automatically converted into newly issued shares. N&G may request the conversion of bonds into shares at any time following the submission of conversion requests but the Company may, upon the issue of new shares, repay the bonds in cash. The equivalent of the redemption will be calculated by dividing the equivalent of each tranche of Bonds by 0.97.
