Members’meeting at Kredinor on 23 March 2022

At the Members’ meeting, Board Chair Sverre Gjessing emphasised the importance of ensuring that members, clients, employees and others feel that Kredinor will continue to operate on the basis of the same high values the company has had for the last 117 years. This means focusing fully on the customer through good customer service and continuous deliveries.

At the Members’ meeting, both clients and owners were given detailed information about the background and further plans for the conversion of Kredinor into a limited liability company, and the plans for the merger with Modhi, owned by Sparebank1. What is new is that Kredinor, through its new business structure, will become more flexible in terms of access to capital and consolidation. This will make Kredinor more robust and secure in the future

Content of the presentation

Sverre Gjessing, Board Chair at Kredinor provided information about the background and goals for the work that is underway. CEO Klaus-Anders Nysteen explained the intentions behind the merger between Kredinor and Modhi. Board member Sverre Olav Helsem then presented the organisation and establishment of the Kredinor Foundation. Charlotte Surén, Project Manager at Kredinor with responsibility for strategic projects, was also present. She went through the project setup for the restructuring process and timeline, which also includes the possible merger with Modhi.

The way forward

The restructuring of Kredinor presumes that the Norwegian Ministry of Finance grants tax relief for the transfer of the business to Kredinor AS, and the Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authority must grant permission to establish the new group. Similarly, a merger with Modhi will require approval by the Norwegian Competition Authority and the Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway. Until this is in place, there will be no changes to the business for clients, customers or employees of either company.
