LGP Telecom investigates a potential new issue of shares

LGP Telecom investigates a potential new issue of shares LGP Telecom Holding AB ("LGP") is currently investigating the possibility to effect a share issue. The share issue may be effected through a directed new issue. Expected issue volume is approximately MSEK 150. The purpose of raising additional capital is to strengthen the company's financial position after a period of substantial investments and to give the company further resources to take advantage of the possibilities that may emerge when demand is strengthened. LGP has carried out an extensive investment program during 2000 and 2001. This in combination with a declining market has resulted in a negative cash flow so far during 2001. Through a new issue, the company's financial key figures will be strengthened significantly.
