BEWI ASA – Approval of prospectus for listing of shares in connection with acquisition of Jackon
Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement published by BEWI ASA (“BEWI” or the “Company”) on 1 October 2021 regarding its offer to acquire all shares in Jackon Holding AS (“Jackon”) and the announcement published on 15 October 2021 where it was announced that HAAS AS, an owner of 50 per cent of the shares in Jackon, had accepted the offer and chosen to receive its consideration in the form of 32,070,000 new shares in BEWI (the “Consideration Shares”). Reference is further made to the extraordinary general meeting held on 16 February 2022, where the Company’s shareholders resolved to grant the board of directors an authorisation to issue the Consideration Shares to HAAS AS when completing the acquisition of Jackon.
For the purposes of listing the Consideration Shares, once issued, the Company has prepared a prospectus in accordance with Article 3 item 3 of the EU Prospectus Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2017/1129 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2017 and ancillary regulation), as implemented under Norwegian law. The Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway (Nw. Finanstilsynet) has today, on 21 February 2022, approved the prospectus.
The Consideration Shares will be issued to HAAS AS (pursuant to a board authorisation) in connection with closing of the Jackon transaction. Closing of the Jackon transaction is still subject to fulfilment of outstanding closing conditions, including without limitations clearance from relevant competition authorities.
The prospectus will be made available at the Company’s website at bewi.com/investors/reports-presentations. Printed copies of the prospectus may be obtained free of charge at the registered offices of the Company at Hammarvikringen 64, 7263 Hamarvik, Frøya, Norway.
