STOCKHOLM, 17th JANUARY, 2018 -- XBT Provider AB (Publ), the issuer of four series of Tracker Certificates referenced to crypto-currencies (Bitcoin Tracker One, Bitcoin Tracker Euro, Ether Tracker One and Ether Tracker Euro) (the “Issuer”) is pleased to announce its imminent return to the non-MMO market segment (NMMO) of Nasdaq’s First North Stockholm exchange, effective as of the opening bell, tomorrow, 18th January, 2018.
As a result of this return to the NMMO market segment, the Issuer’s Certificates will: 1) open with an auction without the Market Maker Order / Market Price Protection functionality; and 2) will have ‘volatility guards’ on the order books, designed to provide ‘protection’ during periods of continuous trading.
It is the Issuer’s opinion, formed in light of extensive discussions with Nasdaq Stockholm, the Issuer’s official market-maker and other market participants, that a market, such as NMMO, which provides an opening auction is better suited to instruments such as the Issuer’s Tracker Certificates.
