Online gaming operator LeoVegas has received formal approval to list on the Nasdaq Stockholm in Sweden, which sees the gaming company move from the First North Premier exchange.

The last day of trading on First North Premier is expected to be Friday, February 2, with trading on Nasdaq Stockholm to begin on Monday, February 5.

The listing prospectus that has been submitted by LeoVegas was approved and registered by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority on January 29.

LeoVegas’ shares will be traded under the same LEO ticker and ISIN code (SE0008091904) as previously and shareholders are not required to take any action in connection with the change in listing.

Gustaf Hagman, LeoVegas group CEO, said in a statement: “This change in listing can be credited to a strong team effort by everyone at LeoVegas, and I want to take this opportunity to express extra praise to my team for the hard work they have done to bring this across the finish line.

“The change in listing strengthens the group and gives us an even better quality seal in our communication and co-operation with authorities, licensors and partners.

“For institutional investors – both in Sweden but even more so abroad – we will become more accessible and attractive as a company. Today is a big day for LeoVegas and yet another step in our ongoing journey of growth.”
