Thommessen has acted as legal counsel to Kalera AS in connection with the successfully placed private placement of USD 22.5 million on 5 June 2020.

The private placement received strong interest from both existing shareholders and new high-quality institutional investors and family offices in the US and Norway, and was upsized from the original deal size of USD 10-15 million.

Thommessen also acted as legal counsel to Kalera AS in connection with the recent USD 15 million private placement on 1 April 2020, and the subsequent registration of the Company's shares on the N-OTC list on 21 April 2020.

Arctic Securities AS acted as manager in connection with the private placements and N-OTC registration.
