Camanio Care intends to divest its operations and subsidiaries to Brighter
Camanio Care AB (publ) ("Camanio Care") has signed a letter of intent with Brighter AB (publ) ("Brighter") regarding the divestment of all shares in Camanio Care's subsidiary Camanio AB, given that Camanio Care's all assets and liabilities are transferred to its subsidiary Camanio AB. Camanio Care's Board of Directors will engage an independent reviewer to evaluate the subsidiary before the Board decides whether they wish to proceed with the negotiations with Brighter. A prerequisite for the transaction is that Camanio Care’s shareholders decide in favour of the transaction at an Extraordinary General Meeting of Camanio Care. Following a potential transaction, the listed Company Camanio Care can change strategy to become a listed investment company.
The purchase price for the divestment is intended to be paid by Brighter through a non-cash issue directed to Camanio Care, and Camanio Care transfers all shares in its subsidiary to Brighter. The value of the total number of shares planned to be issued by Brighter in the rights issue will correspond to the value of Camanio Care's subsidiary.
Camanio Care has engaged Wahlton Attorneys as legal advisor.
“Camanio Care has a strong range of products in welfare technology for digitalized care. The company has had difficulties in attracting attractive financing as a listed company. Through Brighter, the operations would get a financially stronger owner with greater possibility to develop the services and the business. A transaction would also entail that the company’s shareholders secured certain value,” says Niclas Lilja, Chairman of the Board of Camanio Care since June 2019.
“Camanio Care has not had the best conditions as a listed company, but we are confident that the company's product portfolio has a bright future and see a great opportunity to refine operations outside the stock market, with less regulatory requirements taking resources and in a safe context. We see this as a measure to safeguard Brighter's interest in Camanio Care in the best possible way while also taking responsibility and provide security for Camanio Care's customers,” says Jan Stålemark, board member of Brighter.
In parallel to Brighter's planned acquisition of Camanio Care's subsidiary, Brighter also intends to sell all its shares and warrants in Camanio Care, that is, the company that remains after the assets and liabilities have been transferred to Camanio Care's subsidiary, to Brighter's Chairman of the Board Truls Sjöstedt and Brighter’s CEO Henrik Norström through companies.
“Mine and Henrik's, through companies, acquisition of Brighter's shares in Camanio Care AB, is of private nature and not linked to Brighter. The company will continue to be listed, but it will be renamed and have a completely new business orientation. Henrik and I will not be operationally active in the company. In short, we want to establish a listed investment company,” says Truls Sjöstedt.
