| Message from the CEO.
The third quarter was marked by change, development and above all a lot of new opportunities that we are extremely happy about. In addition to the mobile service Go Diabetes, we are particularly pleased with the acquisition of the jDome® technology that proved to be very popular and well liked. We have since the acquisition in late September seen a fantastic fast growth in sales in the jDome segment, and interest from potential buyers and users since then has been far beyond expectations.
Through the acquisition of the company behind the jDome technology, we not only got smart, nice, dedicated and driven people but also broadened our IP and product portfolio in new sought after areas that are important in Brighter’s vision of a data-driven healthcare. Big data is hotter than ever and we at Brighter see great opportunities to streamline and improve the care, treatment and development through analysis and re-use of the personal data that our products collect.
Brighter stronger focus on online healthcare and data analysis contributes to the company's products, jDome and now Actiste after the name change from Brighter One, creating greater value on multiple levels. Partly due to that the user's direct care can be improved by specific adjustments, but also because it can contribute to new insights for researchers and developers. At the same time, the entire continuum of care becomes more efficient through easy access to continuous data and automatic mobile contact with patients.
In October, we entered into a partnership with Ericsson, which is an important and historic milestone for the company. The cooperation brings Brighter closer than ever to becoming a key player in the global market for mobile healthcare and connected care units. Through the partnership with Ericsson and local mobile network operators The Benefit Loop gets all the necessary components for incorporating Brighter's vision of a globally connected healthcare chain, where the patient is in focus.
We continue to develop Actiste rapidly and simultaneously take advantage of the opportunities jDome contributes continuously. Looking ahead, one of our main objectives is to find launch partners in various parts of the world, currently our and Ericsson's focus is in Asia, in order to carry out a broad global commercialization of our products and services through The Benefit Loop.
Finally, I want to personally thank our shareholders who accompany us on this amazing journey to the future of healthcare. We have received many new owners during the past quarter, from various parts of the world, and we will work hard to create value for both old and new owners.
CEO Brighter AB (publ).
The Company's investments consist mainly of capitalization of development expenses - both external and internal - and patents. During the period January to September 2015 the Company resumed capitalization of development expenses associated with the development of Actiste and the Benefit Loop. During the period investments amounted to MSEK 9.4 (11.2).
Capitalized expenses for research and development, equipment and tools, installations on third party property at the end of the period amounted to MSEK 14.5. This mainly refers to the development of Actiste and the Benefit Loop.
2015-09-18 Brighter contracted with the main shareholders of Division By Zero AB to acquire more than 90% of the shares in Division By Zero. 2015-10-08 the registration of the non-cash issue regarding this acquisition was completed, resulting in an increased number of issued shares to 35,380,431. The value of the acquisition, calculated on the average price 2015-09-18, and given that the Brighter by its offer to the minority shareholders, gains control of 100% of the shares in Division by Zero, now Brighter Two AB, would be about MSEK 7.7, the total number of issued shares amounts to 2,615,279. Brighter has filed for registration of received minority shareholders shares, corresponding to approximately 9% of the shares in Brighter Two AB, meaning Brighter will have control over more than 99% of the shares. There remain a small number of shares that Brighter intends to gain control over shortly.
Risks relating to the operation are described in the Annual Report for the fiscal year 2014 and also in the offering memorandum from April 2015 (Swedish only).
