Anoto raises additional USD 1 million on a sale of 1 million shares of Knowledge AI to further improve financial strength

Stockholm, 29 May 2023 – Anoto Group AB (publ) (“Anoto”) announces that it has sold 1 million shares of common stock of its education subsidiary Knowledge AI Holdings Ltd. (“KAIT”). The transaction was done at USD 12 million on a fully diluted basis.  After the sale, Anoto will still own 4.3 million shares of Knowledge AI (47.8% on outstanding number of shares). The 1 million shares were sold to an investment company based in the United Kingdom.

“This is the final piece in our efforts to raise cash for Anoto. Once we are done with the offering and the sale of KAIT shares, we will raise a total of $6.7 million which will enable us to expand and grow. The sale of KAIT shares was intended to reduce dilution for Anoto shareholders and to achieve independent company status for KAIT for it to be self-sufficient and eliminate dependency on Anoto while maintaining a meaningful stake for Anoto in KAIT,” says Joonhee Won, CEO of Anoto Group AB.
