Sdiptech divests InsiderLog from its support operations to Euronext

Sdiptech's subsidiary S. Legal AB has sold 80 percent of the shares in the wholly-owned InsiderLog AB to Euronext. for a cash consideration of 5.8 million euros and an additional purchase price based on future earnings development.

S. Legal AB is part of Sdiptech's support operations. In the support operations, which is only a smaller part of Sdiptech, advisory services are offered in for example law, acquisition, communication and recruitment. In some cases, support operations include the development of products aimed at simplifying customer operations and InsiderLog is such a product.

During the end of 2016, the development of the cloud-based InsiderLog software was initiated, to facilitate the handling of inside information and logbooks in listed companies, which was complicated when the EU's new Market Abuse Regulation MAR entered into force. The product was launched in December 2016 and has acquired more than 170 listed companies, banks and law firms as customers in just over a year. Prior to the sale, InsiderLog's operations and related assets have been transferred from S. Legal AB to a newly formed company.

Jakob Holm, CEO, Sdiptech, comments:

"As part of the Sdiptech's support operations, the team responsible for legal services has developed InsiderLog to simplify their customers' operations. This product has found a new owner who sees the potential to further develop it on a European basis. Sdiptech AB has through its subsidiaries a 36 percent ownership in InsiderLog and this was a good opportunity to divest this ownership at a good return. This type of product development and transaction is positive for Sdiptech, but it is at the same time outside the Group's core business and thus does not constitute the main focus for the Group. "
