The Board of Directors of Ferronordic Machines AB (publ) (“the Company”) has, in consultation with Carnegie Investment Bank AB, decided to shorten the application period in the on-going offering of preference shares (“the Offering”).
Following the Board’s decision, applications to subscribe for preference shares with payment in cash and/or with payment in bonds are due no later than 17.00 CET on 17 October 2013. The reason for the shortened application period is a very strong demand in the Offering.
