Saniona, a leading biotech company in the field of ion channels, today announces that the company has decided to postpone the planned change of listing from Nasdaq First North Premier to Nasdaq Stockholm. The listing process will restart in the spring of 2017.
As previously communicated, Saniona has initiated a process to transfer its listing from Nasdaq First North Premier to Nasdaq Stockholm Small Capduring 2016. Saniona has planned the listing on Nasdaq Stockholm Small Capunder the assumption that management fulfilled applicable competence and experience criteria.
One of the listing requirements applicable to companies to be listed at Nasdaq Stockholm is that the management of the company should have sufficient competence and experience to manage a company listed on a regulated market.
In order to fulfil the relevant listing requirement, the CEO, CFO or equivalent senior executive member of the management team with responsibility for disclosing information to the market should typically have at least twelve months' experience within the last five years from a similar position in a company listed on a regulated market, including Nasdaq First North Premier, or comparable experience.
Nasdaq Stockholm's listing committee has, in a so called advanced ruling, come to the conclusion that, based on an overall assessment, Saniona's management team's experience will not fulfil the applicable listing requirement during 2016.
Experience from a company listed on Nasdaq First North Premier during 12 months will count to satisfy the relevant listing requirement. Saniona has been listed on Nasdaq First North Premier since May 19, 2016. Therefore, based on the existing management experience Saniona may be listed at Nasdaq Stockholm Small Capat the earliest during the second quarter of 2017.
