Unibet notes that the next scheduled window for the exercise of share options in the company was planned for 1-15 June 2014.
As previously announced, the Board of Directors has proposed to the AGM the distribution of shares owned by Unibet in Kambi Group Limited to shareholders. This transaction, which is expected to be executed shortly after approval by the shareholders at the AGM on 20 May 2014, requires that the number of issued Unibet shares in the market is a fixed number. This is necessary to ensure the mechanism to issue one Kambi share for every one Unibet share is effective.
The Board of Directors has therefore approved a change in the planned exercise window from 1-15 June 2014 to 30 April - 6 May 2014. This change only applies to the 110,281 options that have already vested but are not exercised.
No changes have been made in respect of share options or performance shares in Unibet that have not vested. The Board of Directors will assess the impact of the Kambi transaction on those share rights following the completion of the separation of Kambi.
