Everysport Media Group AB (publ.) (ESMG) has today entered into an agreement to acquire the remaining 50% of the shares in the subsidiary Every Padel i Sverige AB (Every Padel). The purchase price amounts to SEK 28,2 million and consists of newly issued shares in ESMG (the consideration shares). The seller is the real estate company Corem Property Group AB (Corem) via the subsidiary Dagon Sverige AB, which through the transaction becomes a shareholder of ESMG. Every Padel currently operates seven padel facilities in Sweden with over 40,000 customers and has agreements for expansion in 2021 to a further four facilities in Sweden.

In the spring of 2021, ESMG completed an acquisition of 50% of the shares in Every Padel as part of positioning the group within padel and creating new conditions for future expansion and product launches. The remaining 50% of the company, which will now be wholly owned by ESMG, is now acquired.

Comment from ESMG's CEO, Hannes Andersson:

“Padel is one of the world's fastest growing sports and Every Padel has in a short time positioned itself as one of the leading brands in padel not only nationally, but also internationally. There are major synergies with ESMG's other operations, especially in the media segment, which we believe will have further effect after this acquisition. We welcome Corem and its shareholders as shareholders of ESMG and look forward to a continued exciting journey for the group.”

Comment from Corem’s CEO, Eva Landén:

“Every Padel is an exciting company that we believe is fits very well as wholly owned by ESMG. The padel sport is in a very exciting growth phase both in Sweden and internationally, and having a partner in ESMG who runs and owns Every Padel is a good fit. We look forward to continuing the journey as a shareholder of ESMG.”

Transaction highlights:

- Every Padel is one of Sweden's largest companies in the rapidly growing sport of padel. The company conducts operations through the rental of padel courts in its own facilities, sales of padel courts, events, and sales of padel-related equipment.

- The acquisition is part of ESMG's strategy to grow into new product areas in sports and further grow the portfolio's B2C revenues. Every Padel has more than 40,000 customers today and is expected to pass 60,000 customers in 2021.

- ESMG acquires 50% of Every Padel for a purchase price of SEK 28,2 million. The purchase price consists of 639,425 newly issued shares in ESMG. The subscription price for the newly issued shares of SEK 44,08 corresponds to the volume-weighted the average price of Spotlight during the period July 1st – July 14th, 2021.
