Børge Leknes, CEO of Hudya, comments:
"As we have previously announced, Hudya's sales are developing strongly at the same time as the cost of customer acquisition is falling. In 2020, we will also launch our services in the Swedish and Danish markets. The share issue gives us the financial muscle we need to continue this rapid expansion", comments Børge Leknes, CEO of Hudya.
Number of shares and share capital
The share capital and the total number of shares in the Company after the Offer are dependent on whether the issuers of issue guarantees choose fees in the form of shares or cash and the completion of the ongoing non-cash issue whereby Hudya AB acquires Hudya AS. Hudya will announce the final number of shares in the Company prior to listing on the Nasdaq First North Growth Market.
