Thomas Skovlund Schnegelsberg, CEO of STENOCARE, comments:
“We are of course overwhelmed and incredibly grateful for the great interest that has been shown for our new share issue. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all new shareholders. While we are delighted with the interest shown, it is unfortunate that we have not been able to assign shares to all who have chosen to subscribe. If possible, we would of course have liked to oblige everyone and to those who have not been assigned any or only a part of the shares you have subscribed for, we can only apologize. I hope you will continue to follow our journey when we start the trading on Spotlight Stock Market on October 26, 2018. I would also like to extend my gratitude to all those parties who, in one way or another, have been involved and made this all possible such as Sedermera Fondkommission, Gemstone Capital and Nordnet Bank among many others. We have an exciting time ahead of us and we are now a few steps closer to realizing our vision of improving the quality of life of patients with chronic pain and suffering.”
