Arcane Crypto AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Arcane Crypto AB ("Arcane Crypto"), has today entered into an agreement to acquire the remaining outstanding shares in Ijort Invest AB, which operates the Swedish crypto exchange Trijo ("Trijo"). The purchase price of approximately SEK 33 million, values Trijo at SEK 50 million on a 100 percent basis. The transaction will be fully settled in shares in Arcane Crypto which will be issued to the sellers (the "Transaction"). Arcane Crypto currently owns 34 percent of the shares in Ijort Invest AB. Closing of the Transaction is inter alia conditional upon customary regulatory approval of Arcane Crypto as owner of Ijort Invest AB.

"We are happy to announce the acquisition of Trijo and their great team" says CEO of Arcane Crypto, Torbjørn Bull Jenssen. "Arcane and Trijo has been working together for several years already. By fully joining forces now, we will use the firepower to together lift Trijo to the next level. We already own and operate the Norwegian cryptocurrency borker Kaupang Krypto, and by acquiring Trjio we are strengthening our Nordic footprint while preparing for our European expantion. The synergies between Trijo and Arcane crypto are clear, and the users should expect rapid product development going forward, including integration with the Bitcoin Lightning Network for faster and cheaper bitcoin transactions".

"I cannot think of a better company to merge with than Arcane. By becoming an integrated part of Arcane Crypto we will get access to a larger pool of resources and our infrastructure in Trijo could be utilized by the whole Arcane Group in entirely new ways" says CEO of Ijort Invest AB Totte Löfström, "We are really looking forward to further accelerate our growth and expanding our product offering based on this full integration with Arcane Crypto".
