The Extraordinary General Meeting of BioGaia on 18 March resolved to distribute the shares in the subsidiary Infant Bacterial Therapeutics AB (IBT) to BioGaia’s shareholders. On 29 March 2016, trading of IBT’s class B shares commenced on Nasdaq First North. IBT’s results up to March 29 will be consolidated in BioGaia’s financial statements.
