Um Nasdaq First North

Nasdaq First North er skilgreint sem markaðstorg fjármálagerninga (e.
Multilateral Trading Facility) rekið af Nasdaq Nordic kauphöllunum (Nasdaq First
North Denmark er skilgreint sem hliðarmarkaður). Markaðurinn hefur ekki
lögbundinn sess sem skipulegur markaður innan Evrópusambandsins. Félög á Nasdaq
First North lúta reglum Nasdaq First North en ekki þeim lagalegu kvöðum sem
fylgja því að skrá fyrirtæki á skipulegan verðbréfamarkað. Áhættan við slíka
fjárfestingu getur verið meiri en á Aðalmarkaði.



Viðurkenndur ráðgjafi

Kvika er aðili að, og með samning við Nasdaq Iceland hf. Kvika er með
starfsleyfi sem viðskiptabanki skv. lögum um fjármálafyrirtæki nr. 161/2002, og
er undir eftirliti Fjármálaeftirlitsins. Kvika er viðurkenndur ráðgjafi (e.
Certified Adviser) á First North markaðnum. Á grundvelli framangreinds hefur
Nasdaq Iceland hf. samþykkt að veita Kviku undanþágu frá því skilyrði að vera
með utanaðkomandi viðurkenndan ráðgjafa í skráningarferlinu sem og í kjölfar
töku til viðskipta. Nasdaq Iceland tekur í staðinn að sér aukið
eftirlitshlutverk við skráningu og mun einnig gegna eftirliti í kjölfar töku
hlutanna til viðskipta.



Opinn fundur með fjárfestum

Í tilefni af töku hlutabréfa Kviku til viðskipta á First North markaðnum heldur

Nasdaq First North

Nasdaq First North is regulated as a multilateral trading facility, operated by
the different exchanges within Nasdaq Nordic (Nasdaq First North Denmark is
regulated as an alternative marketplace). It does not have the legal status as
an EU-regulated market. Companies on Nasdaq First North are subject to the rules
of Nasdaq First North and not the legal requirements for admission to trading on
a regulated market. The risk in such an investment may be higher than on the
main market.



Certified Adviser

Kvika, which is a member of and has an agreement with Nasdaq Iceland hf., has
been granted an exemption from the condition of obtaining a third party
Certified Adviser. Kvika holds an operating licence to operate as a commercial
bank under the Icelandic Act on Financial Undertakings, no. 161/2002 and is
regulated by the Icelandic Financial Supervisory Authority (hereafter also
referred to as the "FSA"). Kvika is approved by Nasdaq Iceland as a First North
Certified Adviser. Due to these circumstances, Nasdaq Iceland has agreed to
exempt the Issuer from obtaining a third party Certified Adviser, during the
application process, while simultaneously taking on a more prevalent
surveillance role in the listing of the Issuer. The Issuer has also chosen to be
fully Exchange-monitored after the shares have been admitted to trading, meaning
that it will not have a Certified Adviser on a continuous basis.



Open meeting with investors

On the occasion of the admission of Kvika's shares to trading on the First North
market, Kvika will hold an open introductory meeting where the Bank's operations
and performance in 2017 will be reviewed. The meeting will take place on 15
March 2018, at 16:15 pm, in Kvika's headquarters in Borgartún 25, 105 Reykjavík,
on the 8(th) floor. We invite everyone to attend.
