Kinnevik’s Interim Report 1 January – 31 March 2023

20 april 2023, 8:00 AMRegulatory information

”In the first quarter, we made headway on our 2023 priorities. We invested significant capital to accrete ownership in Spring Health and Agreena and financed these investments by exiting our remaining shareholding in Teladoc – ending the quarter with a net cash position remaining above SEK 10bn. The market backdrop continued to be volatile, exacerbated by distress in the banking sector, impacting the financial ecosystem our growth companies form part of. The impact on Kinnevik and our investees was limited, but the events serve as an important reminder of the fragility of current markets and the importance of financial resilience in these uncertain times.”

Georgi Ganev, CEO of Kinnevik
