Additional institutional investors acquire holdings in Björn Borg


A number of Swedish and foreign institutional investors have today acquired 2,669,040 shares in Björn Borg AB, corresponding to approximately 11 percent of the total number of shares in the company. The sellers of the shares – Martin Bjäringer, Fredrik Lövstedt, Mats H Nilsson, Håkan Roos, Vilhelm Schottenius and Nils Vinberg – have each divested approximately 25 percent of their particular holdings in the company.

“Björn Borg is experiencing increasing interest from institutional investors and the move to the Stockholm Stock Exchange’s Nordic List is enabling more players to invest in the company. In connection with this, a number of the company’s largest and long-term owners have decided to provide space for new shareholders, by reducing their respective holdings. I am of the opinion that a broadening of the base of institutional shareholders will make a positive contribution by establishing stable and long-term ownership of Björn Borg,” says Fredrik Lövstedt, Chairman of the Board of Björn Borg AB

SEB Enskilda assisted in the transaction.
