On November 6th 2013, our previous major shareholder, Patentør AS, sold a large part of its shares to our employees. This extended the group of shareholders in Oslo Patentkontor AS from 4 to 12 shareholders.
Thus, around half of our employees hold shares in Oslo Patentkontor AS. We are proud that so many of our employees decided to invest in their employer. We are looking forward to exciting times with new challenges that we will master - with our employees and for our employees.
For our clients, the changes in the shareholder group will not bring about any changes in their daily contact with us.
The shareholders are now:
Standing, from left to right: Rita Sandnes, Tone Dahl, Svein Stenbek, Henrik Juel Pettersen, Per A. Martinsen, Øyvind Smedseng, Trond Gustad.
Sitting, from left to right: Helene Gjessing, Valerie Anne Haugan, Patentør represented by Lorentz Selmer, Kathy Gout, Gunn-Tove Bjerke-Selmer
Lorentz Selmer cuts slices off the cake to the new shareholders.
