Aktia's LP market making agreement with Handelsbanken ends 31 March 2013
Aktia plc and Svenska Handelsbanken AB (publ) Branch Operation in Finland have ended their market making agreement which fulfilled the requirements of NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd's Liquidity Providing (LP) operations.
The market making agreement was aimed at facilitating trading in Aktia A shares in conjunction to the listing of Aktia plc. The liquidity in Aktia's A shares has during the last 12 months been satisfactory and the market making agreement is therefore no longer motivated.
The market making will end 31 March 2013.
