Exercise of overallotment option and end of the stabilisation period

ABG Sundal Collier AB and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) (”Joint Global Coordinators”) exercise the overallotment option regarding 604,350 shares in SSM Holding AB (publ) (“SSM” or the “Company”). The stabilisation period has now ended and no further stabilisation measures will be effected.

According to the announcement in connection with the offer to acquire shares in SSM and the listing of the Company’s shares on Nasdaq Stockholm (the “Offering”) the Joint Global Coordinators may effect transactions on Nasdaq Stockholm aimed at supporting the market price of the shares above or at the same level as those which might otherwise prevail in the open market.

It has been possible to effect such stabilisation transactions on Nasdaq Stockholm, in the over-the-counter market or otherwise, at any time during the period which started on the first day of trading in the shares on Nasdaq Stockholm 6 April 2017 and ended 30 calendar days thereafter (the “Stabilisation Period”), which means that the last trading day on which stabilisation may be affected was 5 May 2017 and thus the Stabilisation Period has ended. No transactions have been effected at levels above the price in the Offering.

In order to cover possible overallotments, Eurodevelopment Holding AG (the “Principal Shareholder”) undertook, at the request of the Joint Global Coordinators, to sell additional shares corresponding to a maximum of 15 percent of the number of shares comprised in the Offering (the “Overallotment Option”), entailing a maximum of 1,471,970 shares, at the price per share in the Offering which was SEK 59. It has been possible to exercise the Overallotment Option in full or in part during the Stabilisation Period. Joint Global Coordinators now notify that the overallotment option with respect to 604,350 existing shares has been exercised. Consequently, 867,620 shares which the Joint Global Coordinators have lent from the principal owners in order to cover overallotment in connection with the Offering will be re-delivered.

The Stabilisation Period regarding the Offering has now ended and no further stabilisation transactions will be effected. Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ) (“SEB”), as stabilisation manager, announces that stabilisation measures have been undertaken in accordance with article 5(4) in the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014 as specified below. The contact person at SEB is Ben Jones (tel: +44 20 7246 4651).
