Background to the Offering
SignUp's Board of Directors and Management are of the opinion that the Offering, together with a broader ownership of the Company's shares, will positively contribute to the Company's continued growth and development. A broadening of the ownership of the Company's shares contributes to increased credibility and awarenes as well as a quality stamp that the Company believes will benefit both customer and supplier relationships and assist in attracting and retaining staff.

The Offering is expected to provide SignUp with approximately SEK 175-201 million, before usual issue costs, depending on the extent to which the Over-allotment Option is exercised. The issue costs are estimated to amount to approximately SEK 14 million, hence the Offering is expected to provide SignUp with net proceeds of approximately SEK 161 million (excluding the Over-allotment Option). As the Company is already cash flow positive, the Company intends to use all of the expected net proceeds from the Offering to make potential selective additional acquisitions to further accelerate growth.

Olof Hedin, CEO, comments:
"SignUp started automating financial processes through the product ExFlow 20 years ago. Today we have 1,100 customers and 90 partners around the world, which give us a stable foundation for continued expansion. In recent years, demand has accelerated for solutions that help companies and organizations work more decentralized, faster, more securely and with better control and traceability. This is exactly what SignUp can deliver through a SaaS (Software as a Service) service built into Microsoft's ERP Dynamics. I look forward to continuing to develop both our product range and the organization to the next level and the IPO is an important step for the Company's continued development.”

Göran Garvner, Chairman of the board, comments:
“With proud eyes, we can now look back in our history and see that some of our early decisions were very successful, e.g. to only rent out our products and create what we now call ARR, have a strong cash flow and conduct sales and marketing via the Microsoft partner channel that is available worldwide. With new shareholders and stronger resources, we will increase the pace but still have the above leitmotifs as a basis for our business. At SignUp, we are convinced that the future will be at least as bright as our fine history ”
