Norwegian Block Exchange AS (NBX) has entered into a stock purchase agreement with The Mint AS (The Mint) to acquire all the shares in The Mint with settlement in NBX's consideration shares, subject to approval at the NBX general assembly meeting.

An information meeting and the extraordinary general assembly meeting is expected to be held in February. The agreement will be finalized no later than February 29, 2024.

The Mint AS is valued at 24,000,000 NOK, and the settlement is based on the weighted average of the last 10 trading days before the completion date, with a maximum consideration of not more than 21,000,000 shares in NBX.

The synergies created by the acquisition is expected to increase NBX's revenues by up to 40 MNOK in the first year with a positive margin of 10-14 MNOK.

After the acquisition, The Mint will become NBX's initiative for tokenizing RWAs (Real world asset), where The Mint will expand both the product portfolio and business areas, as well as geographically expanding for NBX to reach more markets.
