Kinnevik: The supreme administrative court denies the Swedish tax agency leave to appeal SEK 702 million tax dispute

Kinnevik AB ("Kinnevik") today announced that the Supreme Administrative Court has decided not to grant the Swedish Tax Agency leave to appeal the tax case concerning withholding tax in the amount of SEK 702m in relation to Kinnevik's acquisition of Emesco AB in 2009.

In December 2015, the Administrative Court of Appeal in Sundsvall decided in favor of Kinnevik in the tax dispute, after which the Swedish Tax Agency sought leave to appeal the case in February 2016. As disclosed in its Annual Reports, Kinnevik has not provided for any potential additional tax as a result of the dispute. Today's decision will thus not have any effect on Kinnevik's financial statements or cash flow.
