Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA


GENEVA, Sept. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Etrion Corporation (“Etrion” or the “Company”) (TSX: ETX) (OMX: ETX) announces that further to the recent sale of substantially all of the Company’s assets and the return of capital to shareholders that was completed on August 24, 2021, and in order to minimize the costs and management time associated with the listing of the Corporation’s common shares (the “Common Shares”) on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) and Nasdaq Stockholm (“Nasdaq”) pending a determination of whether the Company should pursue an alternative business or an orderly dissolution and winding-up of the Company, the Company has applied to voluntarily delist the Common Shares from the TSX. Such delisting will become effective after the close of trading on September 17, 2021.

The Company also intends to apply to delist from Nasdaq. In accordance with good Swedish market practice, the formal application for delisting will be submitted to Nasdaq no earlier than three months after the market has been informed of the delisting plans through this press release. Such process is intended to provide shareholders with a reasonable time to sell their Common Shares or otherwise act on the basis of the information. In accordance with the TSX Company Manual, the TSX does not require shareholder approval of the voluntary delisting of the Common Shares from the TSX as an acceptable alternative market will exist for the Common Shares on the date of delisting. Shareholders holding Common Shares in Canadian brokerage accounts should contact their brokers to confirm how to trade such shares on Nasdaq following delisting from the TSX.

The ownership of the Common Shares will not be affected by a delisting, and shareholders will maintain their shareholders´ rights under applicable corporate law and the Company’s constating documents.
