After considering various factors, FREYR’s board of directors believes that redomiciling to the United States will enhance shareholder value over the long-term by providing potential strategic opportunities and benefits, including:

  • Simplifying FREYR’s corporate structure and streamlining reporting requirements, which will (i) facilitate efforts incurred by FREYR to assess, implement and remain compliant with multiple regulatory and reporting requirements for FREYR on a consolidated basis, and (ii) provide opportunities for FREYR to improve operational efficiencies and financial flexibility in the corporate treasury, cash management, risk management and tax functions;
  • Enhancing FREYR’s eligibility for inclusion in equity indexes and trigger associated benchmarking from actively managed funds, thereby delivering a significant uplift in fund flows to its ordinary shares;
  • Benefiting from well-established principles of corporate governance under Delaware law, which are more closely aligned with the New York Stock Exchange listing standards and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) governance requirements; and
  • Positioning FREYR to better respond to global tax developments and U.S. incentive programs for battery manufacturers, considering recent changes in U.S. tax laws and federal incentive programs.

Pending a successful shareholder vote, closing of the planned redomicile to the United States is expected to be completed by December 31, 2023.
