Oslo, 30 November 2016 – AINMT AS has successfully completed a private placement through issuance of new shares for a total consideration of NOK 800 million. The decision to conduct a private placement is primarily driven by further growth ambitions in Norway – both in terms of customer acquisition and network infrastructure build-out. The completion of the private placement is subject to EGM approvals.
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, HONG KONG OR JAPAN OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE DISTRIBUTION OR RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL.

AINMT Holdings AB will use the proceeds to fund further growth ambitions in Norway – both in terms of customer acquisition and network infrastructure build-out.
