Bronderslev, 31 January 2013 - Asetek A/S ("Asetek or the "Company") announces today that they have sent an application for listing on the Oslo Stock Exchange, alternatively Oslo Axess. The application for listing is expected to be considered at the Oslo Stock Exchange board meeting to be held on or about 27 February 2013.
Asetek is the leading provider of energy-efficient liquid cooling systems for data centers, servers, workstations, gaming and high performance PCs. The Company's products are used for reducing power and greenhouse gas emissions, lowering acoustic noise, and achieving maximum performance by leading OEMs and channel partners around the globe. Asetek's products are based upon the Company's patented all-in-one liquid cooling technology, with more than 1.3 million liquid cooling units sold and deployed in the field.
In connection with the contemplated listing, Asetek intends to raise new equity capital in order to accelerate the Company's growth within its data center business segment. The global shift towards cloud computing and increasing demand for data centers has opened up a significant market opportunity with a large unmet need for energy efficient liquid cooling solutions. The data center market is growing fast, and currently approximately one percent of the total global electricity consumption is spent on cooling data centers.
Carnegie AS and Arctic Securities ASA have been retained as joint-lead managers and joint bookrunners in connection with the listing process. Crux Kommunikasjon AS is acting as IR/communications advisor. Further information about the listing process and the contemplated offering will be published at a later stage.
Asetek is headquartered in Bronderslev, Denmark with offices in USA, China and Taiwan. For more information, please visit http://www.asetek.com.
