Delisting from AktieTorget
NorInvent was listed on AktieTorget in May 2017. The research was based on Dr. Jonatan Moses’s previous studies pertaining to XtriG. The company intended to adapt the technology for large-scale industrial use. In March 2018, the company was informed that there was a problem with obtaining additional documentation of the original research made by Dr Jonathan Moses. NorInvent has chosen to continue research on the patented XtriG platform in parallel with basic research in order to identify a new, functional variant of XtriG, which causes uncertainty and there is no guarantee that NorInvent succeeds in developing a functional XtriG.
The Board of Directors of NorInvent has decided, in consultation with AktieTorget, and in consideration of the company’s current operations and future plans, to apply for delisting of the company’s shares from AktieTorget. The decision is based on the fact that the company’s operation currently consists of basic research, which is being made in order to find a working version of XtriG, thereby creating a basis for further research. There is a risk that the company’s basic research will last for a long period.
Write-down of patent value
The Board of Directors of NorInvent has decided to write down the company’s patent value from approximately 1.8 MSEK to 0 SEK, affecting the company’s immaterial assets in the balance sheet. The write-down is retroactive and affects NorInvent’s annual report for the financial year 2017 and financial reports in the future. The decision is based on the advice of the company’s auditors, which, due to the company’s current activities and lack of access to the original research documentation, believe that a write-down of the patent’s value is appropriate. The patent value may be written up again if NorInvent’s planned studies are positive.
Following delisting from AktieTorget, NorInvent will communicate with its shareholders via the company’s website (www.norinvent.com). Furthermore, the company intends to call a shareholders meeting as soon as possible after delisting.
