THE STAKEHOLDER - FEBRUARY 2019

TOGETHER WITH OUR NEW SHAREHOLDERS WE ARE GAINING FURTHER STRENGTH

Katalysen is pleased and proud to announce that a select group of 12 individuals has joined Katalysen as shareholders.

This enables Katalysen to expand its reach and access to knowledge, expertise and network which directly translates into a higher value-add for our existing and future portfolio companies. As our motto says: Together we make things happen.

The 12 new shareholders bring the total number of shareholders to around 20, in our opinion a good number that allows the group to stay personal and dynamic.

Moreover, these new stakeholders facilitate our future expansion into markets outside of Sweden and Switzerland.

And, last but not least, the newly raised capital enables Katalysen to participate with bigger tickets in our investments.

URBANGREEN HAS BEEN FUNDED WITH AROUND 12 MSEK BY MORE THAN 600 STAKEHOLDERS

Urbangreen has successfully closed their funding round on Pepins having received around 12 MSEK from more than 600 stakeholders.

Urbangreen is offering products that are beneficial for the environment, property owners and residents.

In addition to the cleaning and disposing of water and increasing biodiversity, it is an attractive investment. With this funding in place, Urbangreen will increase the production capacity which will directly impact the bottom line.

Katalysen is engaged in Urbangreen as advisor and shareholder with the mission to create growth and value.

Together with all stakeholders we are now looking forward to reap the rewards.

UNITED SPACES CONTINUES THEIR GROWTH JOURNEY

Castellum has today announced that they are acquiring 100% of United Spaces for MSEK 200 (see press release).

Katalysen has been working with United Spaces for about 18 months and is also a member of United Spaces since about 2 years.

This transaction gives United Spaces more muscles to grow and it also provides existing shareholders an exit.

As a shareholder Katalysen is happy with this exit and as a member we look forward staying as clients of United Spaces.

And most of all, congratulations to Castellum for buying such a good business, to the whole team of United Spaces getting more fuel for expansion and to Göran and Lars having built end exited such a great company.
