The Board has concluded that it is in the Company’s best interest to avoid a share issue during the ongoing change of ownership as reported to the market through the stock exchange announcement on 26 September 2023, and will therefore utilize the Company’s right to settle the options by cash settlement, in accordance with the option agreement.
