Arcane Crypto AB announces an operational reorganization, unifying its growing private wealth businesses under a new business unit called K33.

Arcane Crypto AB announces an operational reorganization, unifying its growing private wealth businesses under a new business unit called K33.

22 November 2022

In parallel Arcane has initiated a strategic review of its investment and venture business to exploit current market opportunities.

Over the last year, Arcane Crypto AB (“Arcane”) has experienced substantial interest in its private wealth business, currently offered by the various subsidiaries, today known as Arcane Research, Kaupang Krypto and Arcane Assets.

To capitalize on this interest and opportunity, these units will be combined into one single business unit called K33. This provides the operational optimizations and the single-minded focus needed to capture the opportunities in K33.

For Arcane as a group, unifying the private wealth initiative under K33, creates optionality to act on strategic interest. This may include, but is not limited to, taking on strategic investors or separated listings of different parts of the portfolio.

In practice, Arcane’s wholly owned subsidiary Arcane Crypto AS will be renamed K33 Holding AS, trading as K33. The relevant sub-entities will be combined and renamed accordingly.

Arcane is also in the process of optimizing the operation of its investment portfolio. Initially, the portfolio will consist of K33, Arcane Green Data, Pure Markets and LN Markets. Arcane will explore both new investments and M&A, seeking to take advantage of a strong deal flow and interesting opportunities in the market as well as potential partnerships.

K33 – Safe. Secure. Digital Assets.

K33, available on k33.com, will be a research-led digital assets brokerage with investment services.  Helping clients across EMEA make informed decisions backed by industry leading digital assets research as they invest for the long term is already proving a unique and winning proposition to Arcane’s customers.   K33 provides this through a unified platform where investors and wealth managers get access to Research, digital assets brokerages offering funds & structured products.

The unified platform will be launched during Q4 2022. The platform can be accessed both directly by customers and through distribution partners and asset management firms that sign up to offer the K33 platform as part of their investment offering.

I am very happy about this operational restructuring of Arcane. By doing this, K33 will get the focus and attention it needs to become, quite simply, the preferred private wealth platform for digital assets in Europe” says Torbjørn Bull Jenssen, CEO of Arcane and of K33.

According to the CTO & Head of Product, Oisin Zimmermann; “K33 represents our vision of the future of the digital assets investment industry, with client funds and investments guided and protected by experts. This will all be offered through an intuitive digital interface, augmented by real-time one-on-one advice and support. We’re targeting young, affluent and high net worth individuals across EMEA, directly and through their existing wealth managers, who value our level of expertise, and our ability to serve the most demanding clients and managers.

We are happy to finally be able to announce this strategic reorganization for Arcane. Despite turmoil in digital asset markets recently, we continue to see massive interest in the sector from many market participants.   Both the investment side, and the private wealth offering, K33, has an amazing potential. Under the new structure both parts of the business will get even better foundations to prosper and take strong positions in their respective markets” says Chairman Michael Jackson.

ARCANE CRYPTO RESOLVES ON A DIRECTED SET-OFF ISSUE OF SHARES TO BULLTECH AS AS AN ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATION FOR THE ACQUISITION OF KAUPANG KRYPTO AS

ARCANE CRYPTO RESOLVES ON A DIRECTED SET-OFF ISSUE OF SHARES TO BULLTECH AS AS AN ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATION FOR THE ACQUISITION OF KAUPANG KRYPTO AS

02 September 2022

The Board of Directors of Arcane Crypto AB (“Arcane Crypto” or the “Company”) has today, based on authorization from the general meeting of shareholders held on 10 May 2022, resolved to issue 58,452,374 new shares to Bulltech AS (the “Seller”), as an additional consideration (the “Additional Consideration”) in accordance with the share purchase agreement of Kaupang Krypto AS (“Kaupang”), which was announced on 13 October 2020. The Seller is entitled to the Additional Consideration due to Kaupang meeting agreed turnover targets.

On 13 October 2020, Arcane Crypto announced that the Company’s subsidiary Arcane Crypto AS had entered into a share purchase agreement regarding the acquisition of all shares in Kaupang from Bulltech AS in which the consideration consisted of (i) NOK 1,000,000 in cash and (ii) NOK 18,500,000 which were set-off against shares in Arcane Crypto. In addition, the Seller is also entitled to the Additional Consideration. As the terms and conditions regarding the Additional Consideration under the share purchase agreement have been met, the Board of Directors of Arcane Crypto has today resolved on and completed a directed set-off issue of shares in Arcane Crypto to the Seller in order to settle the Additional Consideration.

Based on authorization from the Annual General Meeting held on 10 May 2022, the Board of Directors of Arcane Crypto has resolved upon and completed a directed set-off issue of 58,452,374 shares, meaning that the Company’s share capital will increase by SEK 213,276.57120. The right to subscribe has, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, been given to the Seller of Kaupang, i.e., Bulltech AS. The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to fulfil the Company’s obligations towards the Seller under the share purchase agreement and thus set-off the Seller’s claim regarding the Additional Consideration for Kaupang.

Payment was made by way of set-off of the Seller’s claim under the share purchase agreement, which corresponds to a subscription price of SEK 0.184250001548269 per share. The number of issued shares corresponds to a dilution of approximately 0.67 percent of the total number of shares in Arcane Crypto. The subscription price was agreed in the share purchase agreement based on the volume-weighted average price of Arcane Crypto’s share on Nasdaq First North Growth Market the sixty (60) trading days immediately preceding 31 December 2021.

The Seller has accepted a lock-up for the Additional Consideration for a period of 24 months from the closing date of the acquisition of Kaupang. However, the Seller shall be entitled to sell shares up to an amount of SEK 3,000,000.

ARCANE ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT FOR THE SALE OF 100% OF THE SHARES IN TRIJO

ARCANE ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT FOR THE SALE OF 100% OF THE SHARES IN TRIJO

Stockholm, 31 August 2022

Arcane Crypto AS, a fully owned subsidiary of Arcane Crypto AB, has entered into an agreement to sell its Swedish crypto exchange, Ijort Invest AB (“Trijo”), to GreenMerc AB (publ).

The transaction is expected to close during the third quarter of 2022 and will not have a material impact on Arcane’s result.

Torbjørn Bull Jenssen, CEO of Arcane Crytpo, said, “With our strategic focus on a pan-European offering, targeting High Net Worth Individuals, Wealth Managers, and the Private Wealth segment, Trijo as a local retail play has become less relevant to Arcane. Selling to Green Merc, secures the continued operation of Trijo, to the benefit of Trijo’s loyal customers, and further focus for Arcane to double down on our core strategy.

Arvid Börje Ramberg, CEO of GreenMerc, says,  “We are happy to acquire and continue to operate Trijo. GreenMerc’s self-developed liquidity engine and marketplace provides the basis for developing GreenMerc’s services to deliver maximum customer value. There are strong synergies between Trijo and GreenMerc with no overlapping functions – a perfect match.”
