Observe Medical ASA, October 29, 2020: Reference is made to Observe Medical’s announcement October 16, 2020 regarding the signing of a letter of intent to acquire Sylak AB, a distributor of ICU/anaesthesia products in the Swedish market, for an enterprise value of SEK 6 million (on a cash and debt free basis).
