The company wishes to make the following clarification to avoid any potential speculation in the market. In connection to the company’s buy back of own shares a matter of interpretation has occurred which means that a formal error can have been made in relation to the company’s issued bond. In total, the company has during a period of 7 days repurchased a small amount of shares at a limited amount of SEK 1.5 million. The company immediately stopped buying own shares when it became aware of the matter.
The company regrets the matter and is in the process of contacting bondholders in order to solve the situation.
