Göteborg, 2 July 2021
Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) (”SEB” or the “Joint Global Coordinator”) has today notified Sleep Cycle AB (publ) (“Sleep Cycle” or the “Company”) and the selling shareholders (GLA Invest S A, MCGA AB, h265 AB and Petter Wallin) (the “Selling Shareholders”) that the over-allotment option has been exercised in full and that the stabilisation period has ended.
In connection with the initial public offering of Sleep Cycle and the listing of the Company's shares on Nasdaq Stockholm on 8 June 2021 (the "Offering"), the Selling Shareholders granted the SEB an option to purchase an additional of up to 730,525 existing shares in Sleep Cycle to cover any over-allotment in connection with the Offering (the “Over-Allotment Option”), exercisable in whole or in part within 30 days after the date on which Sleep Cycle’s shares commenced trading on Nasdaq Stockholm. The Over-Allotment Option has been exercised in full.
No price stabilisation activities have been carried out since the Offering, and due to the Company’s share price performance SEB has, as stabilising manager, decided to end the stabilisation period.
