Strategy

  • CoinShares strategy is based on three pillars:

    1. Strengthen our foundations by continuing to innovate in our core businesses such as Asset Management and Capital Markets.
    2. Continue to explore strategic partnerships and acquisitions, allowing CoinShares to grow and diversify its top line.
    3. Innovation and curiosity – these traits are essential to stay ahead of the competition and enable CoinShares to build the future of investing through its products.

  • CoinShares Asset Management – 2021 saw the establishment of CoinShares Physical, which provided the platform to launch new products as well as the launch of staking rewards. Throughout 2022 CoinShares plans to continue launching new, regulated and innovative products that address investor needs and allow them to participate in the growth of digital assets.

  • CoinShares Consumer Solutions – With the acquisition of Napoleon complete, CoinShares can develop its Consumer Solutions business by relaunching NapBots in 2022 to expand its customer base from France to Europe and develop a range of products for all investors in digital assets.

  • FlowBank – CoinShares raised its stake in FlowBank, a Swiss neobank targeting non-professional investors, to 29.3% in 2021. FlowBank now uses CoinShares’ proprietary trading platform, Galata, to offer its users digital assets exposure and having access to its FINMA banking license provides CoinShares with a strategic vehicle to accelerate its development.

  • DeFi – In the coming weeks, CoinShares Consumer Solutions will launch a decentralised platform, in a few clicks users will be able to delegate their crypto into vaults carrying specific      strategies, and users will share the vaults performance fees with the other token holders.

  • Galata – Galata is CoinShares’ proprietary institutional-grade, first class, digital asset native trading platform and is a key component in deploying the company’s strategy, accelerating its product development plans and achieving its financial ambitions. Galata acts as a bridge between traditional finance and decentralised finance and it links different exchange platforms and different services that are today crucial to the success of CoinShares’ Capital Markets and Asset Management businesses. CoinShares aims to transform Galata into a marketable trading platform in 2022 through a Platform as a Service revenue model aimed at any financial services firms who want exposure to digital assets for themselves or their clients.

  • Listing – CoinShares is progressing plans to uplist from Stockholm Nasdaq First North this year to the venue with the highest level of regulatory standards, Nasdaq Stockholm Main Market, which will allow a deeper pool of investors to access CoinShares.

Commenting on the year ahead, Jean-Marie Mognetti, Chief Executive Officer ofCoinShares said:

“Our mission is to build the future of investing by providing the premier investment technology for the digital asset sector. We are continuing to invest in our long-term future and 2022 will be a year of further change for us as we transform into a product-centric organisation with a customer-centric culture.”

Maha Energy AB har underrättats om att kontrakterad borrigg i Oman har dragits tillbaka7.7.2022 15:45:00 CEST | Pressemelding

Maha Energy AB (publ) har underrättats av Global Business Services (“GBS”) att den kontrakterade borriggen GBS-1 (tidigare OGI-4) inte längre kommer att vara tillgänglig för Maha Energy i Oman. Detta innebär att den planerade borrstarten av de första sex brunnarna på Mafraqfältet försenas. GBS har meddelat Maha Energy att de inte kan leverera borriggen GBS-1 (tidigare OGI-4) främst på grund av tekniska brister som upptäckts under inspektioner strax innan mobiliseringen. Maha arbetar nu på att hitta alternativa lösningar, men detta innebär att borrningen av de sex brunnarna på Mafraq kommer att försenas. En reviderad tidplan kommer att meddelas så snart som ytterligare information finns tillgänglig. ”Då vi arbetat väldigt hårt för att få allt på plats och starta borrningarna innan den sista juni är vi mycket besvikna över att GBS nu beslutat att inte leverera den kontrakterade borriggen i sista minuten. Men eftersom borrplatser och all annan borrutrustning nu står klart så är vi redo fö

Maha Energy AB (publ) has been notified by Global Business Services (“GBS”) that the contracted GBS-1 (formerly OGI-4) drilling rig will no longer be available for Maha Energy in Oman. This means that the planned start of the drilling of the six first wells on the Mafraq field will be delayed. GBS has notified Maha Energy that they are unable to deliver the drilling rig GBS-1 (formerly OGI-4) primarily due to technical deficiencies uncovered during pre-mobilisation inspections. Maha is now evaluating alternative options, but this means that the drilling of the six wells on Mafraq will be delayed. A revised schedule will be announced as soon as further information is available. Jonas Lindvall, CEO at Maha comments: “We have been working hard to ensure all material and equipment were available for a June 30 spud, so it is very disappointing that GBS has decided to withdraw the contracted drilling rig this late in the game. Everything else is in place so once we find a replacement drillin
