The Year End report has been updated with corrections to all relevant sections impacted by the updates listed above.

Correction of errors

On 31 January 2017, Ayima Group AB (publ) acquired all shares in the British company Ayima Holdings Limited. After the transaction, the sellers were majority shareholders of the Parent Company, hence the acquisition was recognised as a reversed acquisition. Payment of the purchase consideration for the participations in Ayima Holdings Limited was made through an issue in kind where the seller received 3,500,000 shares in Ayima Group AB (publ). This means that Ayima Holdings Limited is seen as the accounting acquirer and Ayima Group AB (publ) as the acquired company, although legally it is the opposite.

As no operations were conducted in the Parent Company at the time of the acquisition the company does not constitute a business and should not be accounted for as a Business combination. Instead it should be accounted for as an asset acquisition in which no goodwill is recognised. In previously published reports, goodwill has been recognised as a result of the reversed acquisition.

The error has been corrected by restating each of the affected financial statement line items for the prior periods as follows:

Balance sheet (extract) 2017-12-31 Increase/decrease 2017-12-31 restated
Goodwill 60 118 -21 448 38 670
Total assets 141 658 -21 448 120 210
Other paid in capital 56 046 -21 448 34 598
Total equity 61 933 -21 448 40 485
Total equity and liabilities 141 658 -21 448 120 210
