Aerocrine applies for delisting
The Board of Directors of Aerocrine AB (publ) (“Aerocrine”) has decided to apply for the delisting of the Aerocrine share from Nasdaq Stockholm. The last day of trading in the share is expected to be July 13, 2015.
On June 15, 2015, Circassia Pharmaceuticals plc (“Circassia”) announced that the public offer to the shareholders of Aerocrine had been accepted to such an extent that Circassia now holds 92.6 percent of the shares and votes in Aerocrine. Circassia also announced its intention to request compulsory buy-out (tvångsinlösen) of the remaining shares in Aerocrine. In light of this, Aerocrine’s Board of Directors concludes that it is no longer justified for the company to remain listed and therefore has resolved to apply for the delisting of the Aerocrine share from Nasdaq Stockholm. The last day of trading in the Aerocrine share on Nasdaq Stockholm is expected to be July 13, 2015.
