Bokusgruppen is preparing for an IPO
Following successful digital growth initiatives, Bokusgruppen is aiming to strengthen its position in the book market in the years ahead. The strong and complementary brands Bokus, Bokus Play and Akademibokhandeln are well positioned in the Swedish market. Together, they provide favourable prerequisites for Bokusgruppen as a future publicly traded company.
On 28 April, 2021, Volati's Annual General Meeting resolved to distribute Volati's shares in the subsidiary Bokusgruppen AB (publ) (“Bokusgruppen”) to Volati's ordinary shareholders. Volati's Board of Directors has been authorized to decide on the record date for the distribution.
Following this decision, Bokusgruppen will apply for a listing of Bokusgruppen's ordinary shares on the Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market in early June 2021.
“We are accelerating our digital transformation and will now communicate directly with the stock market. Looking ahead, we aim to capitalise both on Akademibokhandeln’s omnichannel offering and large loyalty club, through which we can recruit new customers to Bokus Play, and on Bokus’s strengths in online shopping,” says Maria Edsman, CEO of Bokusgruppen
