Chairman Göran Hedbys comments:
“-The company now enters the next phase, the commercialization of the concept developed during several years of research and development. To finance that phase, we must request new capital from our owners and new investors.
It is with great pleasure that our major owners and persons close to the company do not hesitate to support the issue of new shares in order to help us take the next step. The support is broad and shows a solid belief in the technology and the people behind Optifreeze. The method developments and production concepts have reached a level where we are now ready to take a step forward.
I believe that we are well equipped for the next phase. We have recruited new competences into the management of Optifreeze. We now have people with sales and marketing experience, both on the company board and within the operative management of Optifreeze. We have created a good insight through our methods, where we continually develop how different raw materials are affected and improved by the OptiCept process. It is with great confidence that I invite You to participate in OptiFreeze’s continued journey, and also to participate in the shares issue that is being carried out in order to prepare the Company for industrialization and commercialization.”
