Avanza remains the second largest owner after the founders. Avanza's book value of the shares in Stabelo amounts to SEK 109 million and the market value after the transaction is SEK 238 million. The change in value has no effect on Avanza's accounting treatment.
Nordax, with its lending business, enters as a new owner. As a result, Stabelo’s cash position strengthens and provides additional distribution power. Nordax's ownership amounts to 9%.
“Stabelo is an exciting investment for us that will continue to benefit both our customers and owners. Mortgages are also an important part of our offering, which enables Avanza's customers to release their savings from other banks. There are many mortgage borrowers out there who would benefit from switching provider”, says Rikard Josefson, CEO of Avanza.
"The combination of two strong owners from the financial industry in the form of Avanza and Nordax not only gives us a market-leading distribution power, but also a greatly enhanced product development capacity to broaden our offering of mortgage products," continues Hampus Brodén, CEO of Stabelo.
