Net Insight's SEK 157 million rights issue allocated to 65 percent

Net Insight is currently carrying a rights issue worth approximately SEK 157 million. ABG Securities and Swedbank Markets are acting as advisors to the company.

The company's founders, Board of Directors and management will all participate in the rights issue. Major institutional shareholders such as 4:th National Pension Fund, Alecta, Aragon and Banco Fonder, also intend to take part.

Furthermore, an underwriting consortium has been formed, headed up by the Nordiska Fondkommission AB, in co-operation with ABG Securities and Swedbank Markets. The consortium has allocated a substantial part of the founders´ rights and in addition guaranteed subscription of shares in the rights issue. This means that approximately 65 percent of the rights issue has been allocated.

"Of course, it is a sign of strength that we have been able to allocate such a large part of the issue this early in the process. We have found this very helpful in our ongoing talks with clients and partners", says Chairman of the Board, Lars Berg.
