The new shares are savings shares subscribed for with the savings accumulated by ESSP participants between 1 July and 31 August 2023. The share subscription price is EUR 12.71 per share, which corresponds to the volume-weighted average share price on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Finland during the time period from 1 to 31 August 2023.

The share issue is based on the authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting held on 25 June 2020. The new shares are estimated to be entered in the Trade Register on 28 September 2023 and trading in the new shares on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Finland, maintained by Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd, together with the old shares is estimated to commence on 29 September 2023.
