Group CEO James van Houten made a statement following the meeting:

This rights issue will be the single largest rights issue in history and will assist the Group in fighting for its survival going forward. With this money, we will have physical outlets of SwishShop in every city in the United Kingdom and European Union by the end of 2024. SwishHost will have further expansion with more datacentres in major population centres and eventually more datacentres than any other provider in the world.
