Anora Group Plc applies for delisting regarding the secondary listing of Anora shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange
As announced on 25 August 2021, in connection with the completion of the merger between Altia Plc and Arcus ASA, Anora Group Plc ("Anora" or the "Company") submitted an application for a secondary listing of Anora's shares on the Oslo Børs (the "Oslo Stock Exchange"), for a transitional period of four (4) months from the first day of the secondary listing on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
The Oslo Stock Exchange approved the listing application on 30 August 2021. The Anora shares have been listed through a depository interest arrangement in the Norwegian Verdipapirsentralen (the "VPS") and are trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange under the ticker code ANORA. Trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange commenced on 1 September 2021.
The Board of Directors of Anora has, in accordance with the merger plan, resolved to submit an application for the delisting of the Anora shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange. In the application, it is requested that the delisting in respect of the Anora shares admitted to trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange would become effective on or about 1 January 2022. The Anora shares will continue to be admitted to trading on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd ("Nasdaq Helsinki") under the trading code ANORA (ISIN code: FI4000292438).
After the planned delisting of Anora shares from the Oslo Stock Exchange, Anora shares may no longer be traded on the Oslo Stock Exchange. Anora has on 10 November 2021 distributed an instructive letter to its shareholders registered in the VPS providing information about the options available regarding the Anora shares registered in the VPS. Shareholders may either convert their Anora shares registered in the VPS to Nasdaq Helsinki or sell the shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange before the secondary listing ends. Shareholders wishing to sell their Anora shares after the secondary listing has ended will first need to convert their Anora shares to Nasdaq Helsinki. Conversion and transaction fees are applied to the share conversion and transaction events.
