Covid 19 impact and update on capital redistribution

Stockholm, Sweden – Extensive impact on society in combination with canceled or postponed sports events and leagues affect Net Insight. Capital redistribution plans are being pushed forward in time.

The outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic has already had far-reaching effects on society and the economy. As of today, many of Net Insight’s geographical markets are still in the early stages of the outbreak. This, combined with great uncertainty about the virus's continued spread and impact on the economy, makes the effects on Net Insight's business difficult to predict. The business situation during the first months of 2020 was positive. Cancelled or postponed sports events and leagues in combination with travel and visitor restrictions, and a general increase in uncertainty and caution on the part of Net Insight’s customers have had a negative financial impact at the end of the first quarter. This will most likely also have a negative impact on the second quarter. The company actively monitors the development and takes continuous measures to limit the negative effects.

The Board will not propose any form of capital redistribution to the next Annual General Meeting. Given the current uncertainty in the market, decisions on the forms and timing of a capital redistribution will be pushed forward in time.
