The shares of CISL Gruppen AB are traded on First North, the alternative market operated by OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm.The Committee has established that CISL, continuously during 2006 and 2007, submitted excessively positive information about the company, while negative information was withheld from the market.

Moreover, the CISL Gruppen shares have been placed on the First North’s observation list for eight months – such a position shall normally not exceed six months – and it is not possible to predict when the company could be returned to its ordinary position in the share list.

2008:12

A broker at HQ Bankaktiebolag (HQB) placed in connection with the call auction that was held before the trading started on June 18, 2008 large buy orders in HM with prices that deviated substantially from the closing price on the last trading day. The prices also differed from the prices at which other market participants wanted to trade. It was the opinion of the Disciplinary Committee that it was inappropriate to place orders with the current volume to considerably higher prices. The Committee believes however – despite certain embarrassing circumstances for HQB and the broker – that it has not been sufficiently demonstrated that the particular orders were designed to improperly influence the price formation in the trading system or that they were devoid of commercial purpose. The Disciplinary Committee has decided to let the matter rest. For more information, see the attached files with the press release and decision from the OMX Nordic Exchange Stockholm's Disciplinary Committee.
