The Board of Brighter AB (publ) announces that Brighter will complete the acquisition of Nectarine Health’s (formally Noomi AB) assets. The transaction, expected to be completed on January 31, 2020, is made through a non-cash issue and includes all intellectual property, customer relations, R&D department, inventory, staff and other assets. One of the investors in Nectarine Health is the EQT Ventures Fund (“EQT Ventures”).

The share price in the issue is determined by VWAP (daily volume weighted average price) based on the 10 trading days prior to admission, which is expected to be January 31, 2020.
“Nectarine Health is a promising and leading innovation company complementing Camanio AB, the Brighter group's subsidiary focused on technology and services in elderly care, very well. The acquisition is an important step forward in Brighter's long-term global expansion, adding valuable expertise in AI related software and hardware development, as well as strengthening the Group's position within elderly care with new solutions,” says Henrik Norström, CEO of Brighter AB.
EU-Startups.com has named Nectarine Health one of the most promising European agetech companies. The agetech sector is poised to grow rapidly, being the next frontier market for technology disruption due to the megatrend of an aging population. Older people are the fastest growing demographic group, and there are now more people over the age of 65 than under the age of five for the first time in history
“We are very happy to have secured a transaction through which Nectarine Health will become part of a larger family with a strategic fit and get a strong owner with access to the public markets. We believe this will give Nectarine Health an optimal platform on which the highly qualified and committed team can continue our mission,” says Peter Stephens, CEO Nectarine Health.
