Comment by Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO:
"This change in listing can be credited to a strong team effort by everyone at LeoVegas, and I want to take this opportunity to express extra praise to my team for the hard work they have done to bring this across the finish line. The change in listing strengthens the Group and gives us an even better quality seal in our communication and cooperation with authorities, licensors and partners. For institutional investors - both in Sweden but even more so abroad - we will become more accessible and attractive as a company. Today is a big day for LeoVegas and yet another step in our ongoing journey of growth."
The Board of Directors and Group Management are of the opinion that a listing change is a positive and important step in LeoVegas' development and will further increase awareness about LeoVegas and strengthen the Company's brands. In addition, it will position LeoVegas for a development with more regulated gaming markets and create new opportunities for continued strong growth. Further, the Nasdaq Stockholm regulated market will give LeoVegas more and broader access to the Swedish and international capital markets. All in all, the change in listing will contribute to LeoVegas' organic growth strategy as well as to growth through possible acquisitions.
Baker McKenzie is acting as legal adviser to LeoVegas in connection with the change in listing to Nasdaq Stockholm.
