Ola Rollén, Hexagon’s President and CEO, was today acquitted for the second time from the insider trading allegations by the Norwegian economic crime authority (Økokrim). Following the prosecution’s appeal of the Oslo City Court’s unanimous acquittal (10 January 2018), the Borgarting Court of Appeal (Borgarting lagmannsrett) also found Rollén not guilty, rejecting all charges of insider trading.

“I speak on behalf of the Board and everyone else who has stood united with Ola since the beginning of this ordeal that we were never in doubt about Ola’s innocence and, consequently, that the Norwegian courts would reach a firm conclusion to dismiss all allegations,” Gun Nilsson, Hexagon’s Chairman of the Board, commented.

“I am yet again relieved by the court’s verdict, confirming what I and my lawyers have stated from the very beginning; that I did nothing wrong.” said Ola Rollén. “Once again, I would like to convey my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the unwavering support expressed to me from shareholders and employees during this difficult time. It gives me great pride and encouragement to serve as Hexagon’s President and CEO.”
