Klövern AB (publ) (“Klövern“), through its indirectly wholly-owned subsidiary Dagon Sverige AB (the “Offeror“), announced on 4 October 2018 a public cash offer to the shareholders of A Group of Retail Assets Sweden AB (publ) (“Agora“) to transfer all ordinary Class A and Class B shares and preference shares in Agora to the Offeror (the “Offer“).

The last day to accept the Offer is 9 November 2018. Duly completed acceptance forms shall be delivered or sent by post and be received by Swedbank AB (publ) no later than 9 November 2018.
Settlement will begin as soon as the Offeror has announced that the conditions for the Offer have been satisfied or that the Offeror has otherwise resolved to complete the Offer. Assuming that such an announcement is made no later than around 13 November 2018, settlement is expected to begin around 16 November 2018.
The Offeror reserves the right to extend the acceptance period and to bring forward or postpone the settlement date regarding the Offer.
