STOCKHOLM, Sweden, April 29 2022. Karolinska Development AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: KDEV) announces that its portfolio company Promimic’s stock starts trading today at Nasdaq First North Growth Market. The shares will be traded under the short name “PRO”.

Prior to the listing on Nasdaq First North Growth Market, Promimic has implemented an ownership spread of the company's shares through a new issue of 5,000,000 shares, which gave the company SEK 80 million before deduction of issue costs. The issue was aimed at institutional investors and the general public in Sweden and was subscribed to 100 percent.

“As the main owner of Promimic, we have supported the company in its ambition to carry out an IPO despite the challenging listing climate. The reason is that both we and Promimic's financial advisers believe that the company's position and growth strategy are strong enough to withstand volatility in the capital market. Our assessment has now proved to be correct – the issue in connection with the listing was fully subscribed, completely without guarantees. The capital injection means that Promimic can boost its sales and marketing activities significantly in the US market, which is of great importance to the company,” says Johan Dighed, General Counsel and Deputy CEO of Karolinska Development.

Karolinska Development's shareholding in Promimic, including indirect ownership by KDev Investments, amounts, after the IPO, to 16.3 percent (1.8 and 14.5 percent, respectively).
