Allocation to investors will be communicated on 24 June 2024 and the Offering is expected to be settled by the Managers on a delivery-versus-payment basis on or about 28 June 2024.

Conditions of the Offering
The completion of the Offering by settlement of New Shares towards investors is conditional upon i) the Oslo Stock Exchange having approved the Listing (subject to completion of the Offering), ii) the placement agreement entered into with respect to the Offering remaining in full force and effect, and iii) registration of the New Shares to be issued with Euronext Securities Oslo.

The Company may, in its sole discretion, in consultation with the Managers, cancel the Offering, at any time and for any reason prior to the satisfaction of these conditions without any compensation to the applicants.
