Linköping, Sweden, September 30, 2016 – The Board of Directors of IT and medical
technology company Sectra AB (STO: SECT B) has decided to postpone the
publication of the company’s six-month report for the May-October 2016 period
until 8:00 a.m. on December 12, 2016. The report was originally scheduled for
publication on December 7, 2016.
The decision to change the publication date was made to enable Sectra’s
employees and any persons discharging managerial responsibilities in the company
to redeem the convertibles subscribed for in 2013 on November 7-10, 2016, and to
subscribe for new convertibles on November 7-11, 2016, in accordance with a
resolution by the 2016 Annual General Meeting (AGM). This decision is linked to
the EU Market Abuse Regulation (MAR), which came into force in July 2016. Under
MAR, the rules for persons discharging managerial responsibilities have been
changed and now stipulate a 30-day “closed period” prior to the publication of
interim reports, during which persons discharging managerial responsibilities
are prohibited from conducting transactions related to shares or debt
instruments issued by the company. Since Sectra has a convertible program for
all of its employees, which was introduced before the new rules were announced,
the report must be postponed for a week in order to enable the program to be
