Kinnevik: Notice to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting


The shareholders of Kinnevik AB (publ) (“Kinnevik”) are hereby invited to an Extraordinary General Meeting on Thursday 7 November 2019 at 16:00 at Convendum, Regeringsgatan 30 in Stockholm. The Extraordinary General Meeting shall resolve on the proposed distribution of Kinnevik's holding in Millicom to its shareholders through a share redemption plan.

As announced by Kinnevik on 17 September 2019, the Extraordinary General Meeting will be held to resolve on the Board’s proposal to distribute Kinnevik’s holding in Millicom International Cellular S.A. (”Millicom”) (in the form of Swedish depositary receipts (”SDRs”) in Millicom listed on Nasdaq Stockholm and convertible into Millicom shares listed on Nasdaq New York), to the holders of ordinary shares (i.e. holders of Class A shares and Class B shares) in Kinnevik.

The distribution of Kinnevik’s Millicom SDRs is proposed to be made through a share redemption plan. Each ordinary share in Kinnevik (irrespective of share class) will entitle to one (1) redemption share, and each redemption share will entitle to 0.1372 Millicom SDRs, corresponding to a value transfer of SEK 61.05 per ordinary share in Kinnevik (based on the closing price of Millicom SDRs on Nasdaq Stockholm as at 4 October 2019). The Board shall be authorised to set the record dates for the right to receive redemption shares, for the redemption of these, and for the right to receive Millicom SDRs. The estimated record date for the right to receive redemption shares is 14 November 2019. Based on the estimated record date, the redemption shares will be traded on Nasdaq Stockholm from and including 15 November 2019 to and including 29 November 2019, and will then automatically be redeemed by Kinnevik. The redemption consideration, in the form of Millicom SDRs, is estimated to be paid out to the holders of redemption shares on 3 December 2019 and will be available on securities accounts/nominee accounts or equivalent on 5 December 2019. Kinnevik will arrange for any excess fractions of Millicom SDRs to be sold on behalf of the shareholders concerned.

The Extraordinary General Meeting will also resolve on proposals from a shareholder.


Shareholders who wish to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting shall be recorded in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden on Thursday 31 October 2019, and give notice to attend no later than Thursday 31 October 2019.
