Sectra becomes 100% owner of Mamea Imaging AB The Swedish IT and medical-technology company Sectra AB has acquired 5,260 shares in Mamea Imaging AB from Life Equity Sweden KB, thereby increasing its ownership holding in the company from 95% to 100%. The acquisition has no material effect on Sectra's earnings and financial position. "As a result of the acquisition, we have completed the alignment of the ownership structure in Mamea Imaging AB," says Jan-Olof Brüer, CEO and President of Sectra AB. "The acquisition of Mamea is part of our increased focus on the mammography market, where our aim is to become established as a leading player with our unique mammography screening system, Sectra MicroDose Mammography." "This deal is industrially motivated and we are very satisfied with Sectra acquiring our share in Mamea. We look forward to a continued fast development and commercialization in this area", says Peter Zakrisson, Partner in Life Equity Sweden. The intention is to pay for the acquisition with Sectra shares on the same terms as when Sectra acquired a share majority in Mamea on April 30 from the company's founders. As payment for the acquisition, the Board of Directors has decided to carry out an issue of 47,387 B shares to the sellers based on the authorization the Board was granted at the Annual General Meeting in June 2003. The new issue corresponds to 0.1% of the share capital and 0.1% of the votes in the company. After the issue, Sectra's share capital amounts to SEK 36,439,438. Mamea Imaging AB was founded in 1999 by a research group at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and Sectra.
