A press release that Samsung agreed to acquire Fingerprint Cards, a Swedish maker of fingerprint ID sensors, is “incorrect“, the company said Friday.
“The previous press release was not sent by Fingerprint Cards AB. Trading in the share has been suspended,” the company said in a statement. “What has happened will be reported to the police and to the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority.”
The company’s stock surged in value 50 percent in trading Friday before it was halted.
