ABG Sundal Collier AB (“ABGAB”), a part of the ABG Sundal Collier group (“ABGSC”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the leading Swedish investor relations- and sponsored research platform “Introduce”.
Introduce.se currently offers comprehensive financial information and professional analysis on small and medium sized listed companies in Sweden and serves approximately 100 companies in the mid cap- and small cap segment that are listed / traded on the Nasdaq OMX main market, First North, AktieTorget and NGM. Introduce has been a pioneer in its segment and currently reaches out to more than 350,000 investors.
This acquisition fits well into ABGSC’s strategy of broadening the service offering towards Nordic corporations and follows our recent launch of a corporate sponsored research product.
“Our objective is to combine our premier position within corporate finance and institutional research and sales with a broadened service offering towards corporates in the small and mid-cap segment. ABGSC shall be the obvious alternative for all companies requiring corporate advisory and –financing services in the Nordic market”, says Karl Berglund, Managing Director of ABGAB.
Following this acquisition, ABGSC will provide the most extensive Nordic equity research universe with close to 400 companies under coverage.
“We find this transaction to be very exciting for the ABGSC. Introduce will not only further improve the knowledge about ABGSC to a broader audience, but also provide us with the best possible platform for expanding these services to the other Nordic countries”, Knut Brundtland, Group CEO.
The transaction is subject to an approval from the Swedish FSA (“Finansinspektionen”) and will, if approved, be effective on 1 June 2018.
