Hembla applies for delisting from Nasdaq Stockholm

The board of directors of Hembla AB (publ) (“Hembla”) has resolved to apply for delisting of the Hembla-shares from Nasdaq Stockholm. The last day of trading in the shares on Nasdaq Stockholm will be notified when Hembla has been informed thereof by Nasdaq Stockholm.

On 7 November 2019, Vonovia SE, through its indirectly wholly-owned subsidiary HomeStar InvestCo AB (“Vonovia”), announced a mandatory cash offer (the “Offer”) to Hembla’s shareholders to transfer the remaining shares in Hembla to Vonovia. On 10 December 2019, Vonovia announced that Vonovia will, upon settlement, hold 6,136,989 A-shares and 81,282,426 B-shares in Hembla, corresponding to approximately 95.3 percent of the total voting rights and approximately 94.1 percent of the share capital in Hembla.

Following the press release in December, Vonovia has requested that Hembla’s board of directors applies for the delisting of the company’s shares from Nasdaq Stockholm. Vonovia has also requested a compulsory acquisition of the remaining shares pursuant to Chapter 22 of the Swedish Companies Act (2005:551).

Based on the above, the board of directors of Hembla has decided to apply for delisting of Hembla’s shares from Nasdaq Stockholm. Such an application has today been made to Nasdaq Stockholm. The last day of trading in the shares will be announced as soon as Hembla has been informed thereof by Nasdaq Stockholm.
