The offer period expired at 4:00 pm on 4 January 2021. Shareholders holding a total of 50,744,588 shares in Skeljungur hf. accepted the takeover bid, equivalent to 2.56% of the total issued shares in the company.

"In an offer summary, subsequent statements to the market and at meetings of Strengur's advisors with other shareholders, Strengur has described its plans in detail. With the offer, those shareholders who did not share that vision had the opportunity to sell their shares at a premium to the price on the last trading day before the offer was made. Strengur thanks other shareholders for the trust and faith they have in the journey that has been announced, and Strengur will, by virtue of its votes, execute that vision for the benefit of all shareholders," says Jón Ásgeir Jóhannesson, Chairman of Strengur hf. and Skeljungur hf.
