PRESS RELEASE

Mr Green announces intention of a placement of new shares  

Mr Green & Co AB (”Mr Green” or the “Company”) hereby announces an intention of a placement of approximately 5 million new shares (the “New Shares”) through a directed new share issue to Swedish and international institutional investors (the “Directed New Share Issue”).

The price of the New Shares will be determined through an accelerated book-building procedure, which will begin today at 17:30 on 14 June 2017 and end before the commencement of trading on Nasdaq Stockholm on 15 June 2017. The book-building procedure may, at the discretion of the Company, close earlier or later and may be cancelled at any time.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Directed New Share Issue to finance and further facilitate expansion, organically as well as through acquisitions. Mr Green’s strong brand, broad European presence and focus on Green Gaming make the Company well positioned to play an active role in the consolidation of the online gaming industry.

The Directed New Share Issue is subject to ( inter alia ) a resolution by the Board of Directors of Mr Green, following closing of the book-building procedure, to issue New Shares by virtue of the authorization given by the Annual General Meeting on 16 May 2017.

In addition to the New Shares, a handful of large shareholders, including board members Henrik Bergquist and Tommy Trollborg, are expected to divest a total of approximately 1 million shares.

Carnegie Investment Bank is Global Coordinator, SEB is Bookrunner and Cederquist is legal counsel to the Company in the Directed New Share Issue.
