The Board of Directors of Checkin.com Group AB (“Checkin.com” or the “Company”) has decided to carry out a new share issue and list the Company's shares on Nasdaq First North Growth Market. The offering comprises a total of 2,903,226 shares in Checkin.com (the "Offering"). The price in the Offering amounts to SEK 15.50 per share and the Offering amounts to a maximum of SEK 45 million. Based on the issue price and the existing number of shares before the completion of the Offering, Checkin.com is valued at approximately SEK 359 million.
TIN Funds, Knutsson Holdings, Norron Select and Erik Selin through ES Aktiehandel AB have undertaken to, subject to certain conditions, acquire shares in the Offering for a total of SEK 27 million, corresponding to 60 percent of the shares in the Offering.
The Board has prepared a prospectus related to the Offering which today, May 3, 2021, has been approved and registered by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Sw. Finansinspektionen) and subsequently published by the Company. Checkin.com will also apply for admission to trading of the Company's share on Nasdaq First North Growth Market, with the first date for trading preliminary set to May 20, 2021 (the “Listing”).
The Offering in brief
Checkin.com was founded in 2017 with the business idea of establishing a new standard on the internet for checkin – similar to what online payment companies have created for simple, secure and fast online payment solutions ("checkout"). To date, Checkin.com has established itself as a rapidly growing player in the global market for how end users register, identify themselves and log in online, checkin. The Company's technology combines several user experience systems, data sources and identification methods to create individually tailored checkin flows for each end user. The Company's software increases the conversion rate while ensuring necessary identification and regulatory compliance. In 2020, the Company's software platform managed over 18 million checkin sessions in over 165 countries.
The Company's product is delivered through a cloud-based software, Software as a Service, where the customer subscribes to monthly subscriptions. The Company’s net sales and EBITDA in 2020 amounted to SEK 22.3 million and SEK 1.7 million, respectively.
The Offering and subsequent listing gives Checkin.com access to the Swedish capital markets and enables a diversified shareholder base of both Swedish and international investors as well as increased brand awareness, which is expected to improve the Company's continued growth and development. The Board and management also believe that a listing of the Company's shares on Nasdaq First North Growth Market is a hallmark of quality that can have a positive effect in recruitment contexts and on the relationship with customers, suppliers, shareholders and creditors. Furthermore, a listing of Checkin.com facilitates the Company to use own shares prior to or in relation to potential acquisitions.
Kristoffer Cassel, co-founder and CEO of Checkin.com comments:

From the very beginning, many of the Nordic region's most prominent investors have strongly believed in what we do and chosen to support us, and it now feels great to also be able to offer the public the opportunity to be part of our journey, says the Company's CEO and co-founder Kristoffer Cassel.
