XBT PROVIDER AB:: Migration To First North Segment (A Multilateral Trading Facility)
STOCKHOLM, NOVEMBER 24, 2017 - On 1st December, 2017, all Securitised Derivatives categorised as ‘warrants and certificates’ which are then listed on Nasdaq Stockholm’s regulated market will be required, if they wish to remain listed, to migrate to Nasdaq First North Segment, which is a multilateral trading facility (MTF).
XBT Provider AB (Publ) (the “Issuer”) is accordingly preparing for such migration of its tracking Certificates which are referenced to bitcoin and ether (Bitcoin Tracker One, Bitcoin Tracker Euro, Ether Tracker One and Ether Tracker Euro). The ISIN and Order Book IDs for these products will remain as they currently are, as will trading fees and the structure of the Issuer’s Certificates.
In anticipation of this migration, it would be prudent for holders of the Issuer’s Certificates to confirm that their brokers will have the requisite access to the First North MTF with effect from 1st December.
As a mutlilateral trading facility, First North is not subject to the same degree of regulation as Nasdaq Stockholm. Accordingly, Certificate holders subject to an investment restriction relating to the regulated status of products which they may be invested in, should seek appropriate investment advice as to whether First North MTF will be compliant with such restrictions. Please note that the Issuer is unable to provide such advice.
For more Information regarding this migration please consult the Nasdaq documentation (which can be found here) or contact your usual broker. For more information on XBT Provider issued trackers, contact investor relations at [email protected].

In 2017, Ether Tracker One became the first ether-referenced security available on a regulated exchange when it listed on NASDAQ in Stockholm. All four certificates are available in 179 countries and are traded in the same manner as any other share or instrument listed on the Nasdaq exchange in Stockholm. The Issuer's Prospectus is approved by the Swedish FSA (Finansinspektionen) and its products are listed on Nasdaq Nordic in Stockholm. XBT Provider AB (Publ) is not a licensed financial advisor. The views presented in this release are the opinions of the Board of XBT Provider AB (Publ) and no other party. Bitcoin and ether are volatile assets and their prices (and the price of securities that are referenced to them) can move quickly. Prospective investors in the Issuer's certificates should carefully consider the suitability of such an investment and, in connection with such a determination, should carefully read the Issuer's latest Prospectus (including, in particular, the risk warnings set out therein).
