Reverse share split in INIFY
Following the execution of the dividend, a reverse share split in INIFY will be carried out. The extraordinary general meeting in INIFY resolved on 13 January 2022 to carry out a reverse share split, whereby ten (10) shares in INIFY will be combined into one (1) share. To carry out the reverse share split it was also resolved to amend INIFY’s Articles of Association and the number of shares in INIFY. The shareholders of INIFY do not need to take any actions in order to participate in the reverse share split. INIFY’s shareholders will automatically receive a new, lower, number of shares in proportion to their holdings on the record date, which will be determined at a later stage in the process. The shareholders whose holdings of shares are not, on the record date, evenly divisible by ten (10), will receive shares free of charge from a large shareholder in INIFY contributing with shares to the shareholders whose holdings of shares are not evenly divisible by ten (10). The larger shareholder will also round down its remaining holding of shares in INIFY to the nearest number that is evenly divisible by ten (10).
Following the reverse share split, the number of shares in INIFY decreases from 77,367,500 to 7,736,750 and thereafter each share will have a quota value of approximately SEK 0.064626 per share. As a result of the reverse share split, INIFY’s share will change ISIN code.
