Edsbyns Elverk will be sold to Ellevio
Yesterday, on November 3, an Extraordinary General Meeting of AB Edsbyns Elverk made all the necessary decisions for the Group to be sold to Ellevio. Moreover, owners representing over 90 percent of the shares have accepted Ellevio's offer. This means that Ellevio is about to initiate a redemption process for the remaining shares.
In order for the sale to Ellevio to be completed, more conditions than the shareholders' acceptance had to be met; of which one was that the pre-emption for Class A shares had to be removed. This decision was made at the meeting on November 3, meaning that Ellevio's aqcuisition of Edsbyn's Elverk can be completed. X percent of the shares were represented at the meeting.
- I am really glad that we are now yet another step closer to incorporating Edsbyn Elverk's grid into our operations. Ellevio will soon start the integration process and work to secure a smooth process for both employees and customers, says Johan Lindehag, CEO of Ellevio.

Ellevio wants to give shareholders who have not yet chosen to accept the offer the opportunity to do so. Therefore, the acceptance period has been prolonged until and including Friday November 19 at 17.00. Price per share and estimated payment of consideration are the same as before. Remaining shareholders who wish to accept the offer can use previously issued application forms and reply envelopes, or download and print a new application form from www.ellevio.se/bud-Edsbyns-Elverk.
