On November 18th, 2022, the Company disclosed that it had completed the acquisition of 80 per cent of the shares in Tricked Esport ApS (“Tricked”) for a purchase price of SEK41,400,000 to be paid by way of a direct issue of ordinary shares in the Company.

Furthermore, the Company is required to issue ordinary shares to the Sellers to fulfill its obligation pursuant to the acquisition.
The Consideration Share Issue entails a dilution of approximately 17.72 per cent of the number of ordinary shares and votes in the Company. Through the Consideration Share Issue, the number of ordinary shares and votes in the Company increases by 27,626,666 ordinary shares from 128,316,734 to 155,943,400.
The share capital entails an increase by SEK3,313,656.31 from SEK15,390,838.5103 to SEK18,704,494.82.
