Arcane Crypto completes the acquisition of Ijort Invest AB (Trijo) and resolves on a directed set-off issue of shares to the sellers following the acquisition

Arcane Crypto AB ("Arcane Crypto" or the "Company") has, on 20 April 2021, announced that the Company's subsidiary Arcane Crypto AS had 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 SEK 32,835,000 is to be settled by issuance of a total of 121,836,734 new shares in Arcane Crypto to the sellers (the "Consideration Shares") at a subscription price of SEK 0.2695 per share, equal to the price of Arcane Crypto's share on Nasdaq First North Growth Market on the Business Day immediately prior to signing. Closing of the transaction and issuance of the Consideration Shares has today been completed through a directed set-off issue of shares.

On 20 April 2021, Arcane Crypto announced that the Company's subsidiary Arcane Crypto AS had entered into an agreement to acquire the remaining outstanding shares in Trijo. As the closing conditions under the agreement have been met, the Board of Directors of Arcane Crypto has today resolved on and completed a directed set-off issue of shares in Arcane Crypto to the sellers in order to settle the Consideration Shares.

By virtue of the authorisation from the Annual General Meeting held on 21 May 2021, the Board of Directors of Arcane Crypto has resolved on and completed a directed set-off issue of 121,836,734 shares, meaning that the Company's share capital will increase by SEK 444 548,59. The number of issued shares corresponds to a dilution of approximately 1.5 percent of the total number of shares in Arcane Crypto.

The right to subscribe has, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, been given to the sellers of the shares in Trijo. The reason for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights is to fulfil the Company's obligations towards the sellers under the agreement and thus set-off the sellers' claims regarding the purchase price for Trijo. The purchase price of approximately SEK 33 million, values Trijo at SEK 50 million on a 100 percent basis.

Payment was made by way of set-off of the sellers' claims under the agreement, which corresponds to a subscription price of SEK 0.2695 per share. The subscription price was agreed in the agreement, equal to the price of Arcane Crypto's share on Nasdaq First North Growth Market on the Business Day immediately prior to signing.

The Consideration Shares are subject to lock-up restrictions vesting with 1/3 on 1 January 2021, 1/3 on the date 18 months after closing of the transaction and 1/3 on the date 24 months after closing of the transaction.
