Kinnevik: Distribution and listing of Invik

8/17/2005 3:23 PM

The Stockholm Stock Exchange's Companies Committee has approved the Invik class B share for listing on the O-list. Trading on the O-list will commence on September 1, 2005. The size of a round lot is set at 200 shares. The record date for distribution to the company's shareholders of all shares in Invik & Co. AB ("Invik") will be August 30, 2005.
 
In the distribution, each ten class A or class B shares in Kinnevik will entitle the holder to one share of the corresponding class in Invik. If the shareholding in Kinnevik is not evenly divisible by ten, fractions of a share will be received. These fractions will be automatically combined to form whole shares and sold on the Stockholm Stock Exchange. Proceeds from the sale will be paid to the owners via VPC without deduction for commission. All holders of odd and excess share fractions will receive equal compensation per fraction, regardless of whether payment relates to fractions of class A or class B shares.
 
The shareholders in Kinnevik, who in conjunction with the distribution receive fewer than 50 Invik shares, will be given an opportunity via Fischer Partners Fond­kommission AB to sell their Invik shares without commission through a simplified procedure. Application forms for participation in the simplified procedure will be distributed to the shareholders concerned around September 5, 2005.
