Cambridge (UK) 28 December 2022 (08.00 CET) – Hybrid Software Group PLC (Euronext: HYSG) is pleased to announce that the Prospectus for the January 2021 acquisition of HYBRID Software has been approved for public release and is available at https://www.hybridsoftware.group/investors/hybrid-software-acquisition. The 21,074,030 new shares that were issued as consideration for the purchase of HYBRID Software will be listed for trading on Euronext Brussels on 28 December 2022.
Guido Van der Schueren, Chairman of Hybrid Software Group, comments, “We are happy to conclude this final step in the successful acquisition of HYBRID Software. Although the transaction was completed nearly two years ago, accounting changes after Brexit delayed the publication of the Prospectus and the listing of the additional shares for trading. But this didn’t stop us from integrating HYBRID Software as the largest component of Hybrid Software Group, both in headcount and revenue. The acquisition has already been a success and continues to deliver additional synergies to the company.”
