An offer document (in Swedish and English) has been made public by the Bidder.
The Offer is not being made to (and acceptance forms will not be approved from or on behalf of) persons domiciled in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland or USA or whose participation in the Offer requires that additional offer documents are prepared or registrations affected or that any other measures are taken in addition to those required under Swedish law (including The Swedish Stock Market Self-Regulation Committee's Takeover rules for certain trading platforms (2024-01-01)), except where there is an applicable exemption.
This press release and any other documentation related to the Offer (including copies of such documentation) must not be mailed or otherwise distributed, forwarded or sent in or into any jurisdiction (including, without limitation, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland or USA) in which the distribution of this press release or the Offer would require any additional measures to be taken or would be in conflict with any laws or regulations in any such jurisdiction. Persons who receive this press release (including, without limitation, banks, brokers, dealers, nominees, trustees and custodians) and are subject to the laws or regulations of any such jurisdiction will need to inform themselves about, and observe, any applicable restrictions and requirements. Any failure to do so may constitute a violation of the securities laws or regulations of any such jurisdiction. To the extent permitted by applicable law, the bidder disclaims any responsibility or liability for any violations of any such restrictions and the bidder reserves the right to disregard any acceptance forms whose submission constitutes a direct or indirect violation of any of these restrictions.
The Offer, the information and documents contained in this press release are not being made and have not been approved by an authorised person for the purposes of section 21 of the UK Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (the "FSMA"). Accordingly, the information and documents contained in this press release are not being distributed to, and must not be passed on to, the general public in the United Kingdom except where there is an applicable exemption. The communication of the information and documents contained in this press release is exempt from the restriction on financial promotions under section 21 of the FSMA on the basis that it is a communication by or on behalf of a body corporate which relates to a transaction to acquire day to day control of the affairs of a body corporate; or to acquire 50 percent or more of the voting shares in a body corporate, within article 62 of the UK Financial Service and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005.
Statements in this press release relating to any future status or circumstance, including statements regarding future performance, growth and other trend projections as well as other effects of the Offer, are forward-looking statements. Such statements may, inter alia, be identified by the use of words such as "anticipate", "believe", "expect", "intend", "plan", "strive", "seek", "will" or "would" or by similar expressions. By their nature, forward-looking statements are associated with risks and uncertainties because they relate to future events and depend on circumstances that occur in the future. Due to several factors, many of which are outside the bidder's control, future circumstances may materially deviate from what has been expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which the statements are made and the bidder has no obligation (and undertakes no obligation) to update or revise any such statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except for when it is required by applicable laws and regulations.
This press release has been published in Swedish and English. In the event of any discrepancy between the two language versions, the Swedish version shall prevail.
