Background and reasons

Aino Health Management Oy was founded in Finland in 1994 and has been operating its current business model since 2010. The company has developed a complete system of IT-based services with a focus to improve corporate health and reduce sickness absence levels in private and public organizations.

The general corporate health level is most often expressed in terms of sickness absences and measured in terms of sick pay costs and salaries to substitutes. Furthermore, there are additional costs that are hard to measure such as reduced quality of delivered products and services as a consequence of a changing and unstable workforce, as a result of the general state at the work place, in full and in working groups.

A complete service provided by Aino Health includes:

  • Integration of the customer's personnel records and Aino Health's central IT-based database, Health Manager
  • HealthManager collects and analyses personnel data including suggestions for actions when the sickness absence reach a certain level as well as monitoring of supervisors and managers' actions and signal of possible passivity regarding personnel sickness absences
  • Sickness absence reporting and personal follow-up by qualified medical personnel through the Aino Health Call center/Health Desk
  • SafetyManager, to be launched in 2017, will serve as the customer's integrated solution for health and safety management in different organizations including registration, monitoring and reporting to top level management of events and processes related to the company safety and working environment

Aino Health's systems can be described as tools and services to be able to establish and maintain low sickness absence levels and reduce costs through ensuring that the employees get the attention needed when they are absent. Underlying reasons and patterns of the sickness absence are being monitored in consultation with employees and unions, and any passivity from managers can quickly be detected. Sickness absence can be a complex problem and can be explained by both obvious and hidden causes.

The subsidiary, Aino Health Management Oy, has established a reputable client base consisting of both private and public organizations in Finland. The customer base consists of approximately 150 customers, and around 30 customers with approximately 33 000 employees combined are using the HealthManager service. In 2015, 20 percent of Aino Health's customers accounted for about 85 percent of the turnover.

Aino Health is facing an expansion with the aim of further establishment in Europe. The first step will be a market launch in Sweden and Germany where discussions and negotiations with a number of potential customers have been initiated.

The current corporate structure consists of the parent company Aino Health AB (publ), the Swedish subsidiary Aino Health Sweden AB and the fully owned Finnish subsidiary Aino Health Management Oy with its subsidiary Aino Active Oy. The corporate group will be expanded and a new subsidiary will be established in each new country Aino Health enters.

Aino Health's objective is to achieve a strong growth, partly by growing organically in already established markets and partly through entering new geographical markets. The objective is that establishments on new markets should be self-financing without the need for additional capital after two years.

The Board of Directors in Aino Health has, to provide the Company with sufficient working capital and strengthen the financial position, on November 21, 2016 decided on the Offer based on EGM's approval on September 19, 2016. The Offer amounts to a total of SEK 53.8 M if fully subscribed and including the Over-allotment option, after which the Company will receive up to SEK 48.8 M after transaction costs of SEK 5.0 M. The proceeds will be utilized for working capital with the exception of 1-2 million relating to adjustments of software.

The offer and the subsequent listing on Nasdaq First North will create liquidity in the Aino Health share. The listing of Aino Health will grant the company access to the stock market, which facilitates future fund raising. The listing also enables Aino Health to, over time, get new shareholders that could strengthen the company development. The listing is also expected to have positive effects on the company's relationships with business partners, employees and potential clients. The Board of Directors of Aino Health assess that the company is well suited for a broadening of ownership and listing of shares.
