Mellby Gård has today announced that they will exercise the option to acquire additional shares in AcadeMedia AB (publ) (”AcadeMedia” or the ”Company”) from Marvin Holding Limited (a holding company owned by EQT V Limited and its co-investors) (“Marvin”) in accordance with the agreement that was made public in connection with the IPO of AcadeMedia in June 2016. For this reason Marvin sells 9,461,837 shares to Mellby Gård at the previously agreed price per share of 5% premium to the offering price at the IPO. This increases Mellby Gård's ownership to 20.01% of the total number of shares in AcadeMedia. Following the sale, Marvin holds 51,248,326 shares in AcadeMedia representing 54.4% of the total number of shares in the Company.
The change in ownership will also be flagged to Finansinspektionen (the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority) in accordance with existing regulations.
Harry Klagsbrun, Partner at EQT Partners and Investment Advisor to the EQT funds:
”We welcome that Mellby Gård with its long-term and entrepreneurial culture increases its holding in AcadeMedia. EQT shares the same will to actively support AcadeMedia’s vision to be an international role model in terms of quality, results and innovation in its various school and educational activities.”
