Exercise of the over-allotment option in the listing of Alimak
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION IN THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, JAPAN OR AUSTRALIA.
The Global Coordinators have today notified Alimak Group AB (publ) (“Alimak” or the “Company”) and the primary selling shareholder, funds advised by Triton (“Triton”), that the over-allotment option has been exercised in full in respect of 3,559,500 shares in Alimak.
In connection with the initial public offering of Alimak, Triton granted the Global Coordinators an over-allotment option of up to 3,559,500 shares to be used to cover so-called over-allotment of shares. The Global Coordinators have exercised the over-allotment option in full. No stabilisation has been carried out since the listing, and due to Alimak’s share price development, the Global Coordinators have decided to end the stabilisation period.
Following the exercise of the over-allotment option Apolus Holding AB, a company ultimately owned by Triton, holds 12,298,486 shares in Alimak, corresponding to an ownership of approximately 28% of the shares in Alimak.
