- The Offer values the total number of shares in Cary Group to approximately SEK 8,570 million. The total value of the Offer, based on the 92,288,403 outstanding shares in Cary Group, which are not directly or indirectly owned by Teniralc, CVC Funds or Nordic Capital or their respective closely related parties, amounts to approximately SEK 5,999 million.

The Board of Directors of Cary Group has, within the Board, appointed an independent bid committee, which will represent the Company in connection with the Offer. The independent bid committee consists of Juan Vargues, Magdalena Persson and Ragnhild Wiborg. The board member Joakim Andreasson is considered biased, as he is Managing Director in Nordic Capital Advisors, hence Joakim Andreasson has therefore not participated in, and will not participate in, the Board of Directors of Cary Group’s handling of matters relating to the Offer.
The independent bid committee will, in accordance with the regulations, announce its opinion regarding the Offer no later than two weeks prior to the expiry of the acceptance period.
Cary Group has appointed White & Case as legal advisor in connection with the Offer.
