Background and motive
In June 2022, the Company announced that it had initiated extensive restructuring. The Company partially reduced the number of employees and employed consultants.

The purpose of the change is to create a better functioning organization, which is more cost-effective and fast-paced in order to be able to serve the Company’s existing customers and partners to a significantly greater extent. It is the Company’s goal to increase the number of new B2B agreements and at the same time increase engagement among existing partners and end users, with a focus on the European market. This is to increase the Company’s revenue and reach profitability over the next 12 months. The Company believes that the restructuring will help them achieve the above-mentioned goals.

- Offset or repayment of previous bridge financing, approximately 40 percent
