I would have naturally preferred to be appointed under different circumstances, but I have no reservations in accepting it. I have a great deal of faith in Global Gaming and stand by what I have said in recent weeks: the regulator’s decision to revoke our licences is incorrect and disproportionate. We are confident that we are compliant with the requirements of the Swedish legislation, and I have faith in the judicial process and look forward to its outcome.“The current situation is damaging to us, our customers, our employees and approximately 6,000 shareholders for every day that goes by. We will do everything in our power to restore as much confidence as possible in us, in order to be able to offer our brands to our customers in Sweden again soon.”Closing its statement, Global Gaming governance confirms that Fagerlund will remain a member of the Board of Directors.last_img read more
