I.M. Skaugen SE (IMSK) has since May 2011 had a “market maker agreement” with SEB with the purpose to provide more and better liquidity for our many smaller shareholders. The ambition has been to offer some assistance to enable these to sell or buy smaller lots of shares, and by this increase the turnover and tighten the spreads of the IMSK shares.

 IMSK and SEB has now agreed to terminate this “market maker agreement”. We are in a process of evaluating if such liquidity arrangements has had and will have the desired effect to warrant the additional cost for the company.

 SEB will until 29th of February perform its obligations under the agreements in place.
