Doro’s President and CEO, Jérôme Arnaud, has decreased his holding in Doro AB by 100,000 shares, from 472,004 to 372,004 shares. Following the transaction, his holding in Doro corresponds to 1.95 percent of the capital and votes in the company.
The divestment of shares is being made for personal financial reasons.
“I have worked developing Doro for three years before selling these shares, and I may sell additional shares in the near future. The reason is that I want to pay off the loan I secured to acquire my shareholding in the first place; I also want to use the proceeds to pay off a tax liability and to finance my private residence”, explains Jérôme Arnaud.
“I have a long-term commitment to Doro. Together with Bo Kastensson, Chairman of the Board, I am convinced that the strategies we are implementing will generate further value for customers and partners, and therefore also for our shareholders. This is why part of the proceeds of the share divestment also will be re-invested through a significant subscription to the warrant program that Doro’s Board today has proposed to the upcoming Annual General Meeting.”
