Bergen, 16 October 2015: Reference is made to the stock exchange release published on 6 October 2015 regarding the intention to list the shares (the "Shares") of Skandiabanken ASA ("Skandiabanken" or the "Bank") on the Oslo Stock Exchange and the contemplated initial public offering (the "Offering" or the "IPO"). Skandiabanken and its sole shareholder Livförsäkringsbolaget Skandia, ömsesidigt (the "Selling Shareholder") have resolved to launch the Offering and to apply for a listing of the Shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange. Subject to approval of the listing application and successful completion of the Offering, the Shares of Skandiabanken are expected to be admitted to trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange on 2 November 2015 under the ticker "SKBN" (subject to any extension or shortening of the Offering period).
The Offer Shares (as defined below) will be offered for sale within an indicative price range between NOK 43 and NOK 54 per Offer Share, corresponding to an equity value of Skandiabanken of between NOK 4.3 billion and NOK 5.4 billion before the issue of New Shares in the Offering (as defined and described below). The final price per Offer Share (the "Offer Price") may, however, be set above or below this indicative price range.
The Selling Shareholder intends to offer for sale between 60 million and 75 million existing Shares (the "Sale Shares"), representing between 60% and 75% of the Shares in Skandiabanken prior to the Offering. In addition, the Bank intends to raise gross proceeds of approximately NOK 300 million by issuing up to 6,976,744 new Shares (the "New Shares" and, together with the Sale Shares, the "Offer Shares") in the Offering. The proceeds from the issue of the New Shares will provide the Bank with sufficient capital for management's objective of lending growth going forward.
The Joint Bookrunners (as defined below) may over-allot up to 15% of the number of Offer Shares allocated in the Offering. Further, pursuant to an over-allotment option, the Joint Bookrunners may elect to purchase from the Selling Shareholder the number of over-allotted Shares to cover any over-allotments made in connection with the Offering.
After the completion of the Offering it is expected that the Selling Shareholder will hold between 12.1% and 28.3% of the Shares in the Bank (assuming full exercise of the over-allotment option and that the Offer Price is set at the mid-point of the indicative price range).
The Selling Shareholder will enter into a customary lock-up agreement with the Sole Global Coordinator (as defined below) for the remainder of its shareholding in the Bank with a lock-up period lasting 180 days from the first day of trading, whereas the Bank, as part of the same agreement, will be subject to a lock-up period of 12 months from the same date.
The Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway has approved the prospectus dated 16 October 2015 (the "Prospectus") which has been prepared in connection with the Offering. The terms and conditions for the Offering, as further set out in the Prospectus, comprise:
(i) An institutional offering, in which Offer Shares are being offered to (a) investors in Norway, (b) investors outside Norway and the United States, subject to applicable exemptions from any prospectus requirements, and (c) investors in the United States who are QIBs in transactions exempt from registration requirements under the U.S. Securities Act.

(iii) An employee offering, in which Offer Shares are being offered to the Bank's eligible employees, subject to a lower limit of NOK 13,500 and an upper limit per application of NOK 1,999,999 for each eligible employee. Each eligible employee will receive a fixed cash discount of NOK 1,500 on the aggregate amount payable for the New Shares allocated to such employee.

The bookbuilding period for the institutional offering will commence on 19 October 2015 at 09:00 hours (CET) and end on 29 October 2015 at 14:00 hours (CET), and the application period for the retail offering and the employee offering will commence on 19 October 2015 at 09:00 hours (CET) and end on to 29 October 2015 at 12:00 hours (CET), both subject to shortening or extensions.
The Selling Shareholder and the Bank will, in consultation with the Joint Bookrunners, determine the final number of Offer Shares and the final Offer Price on the basis of the bookbuilding process in the institutional offering. The announcement of the Offer Price is expected to take place on or around 30 October 2015 with trading of the Shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange to commence on or around 2 November 2015 under the ticker "SKBN".
Completion of the Offering is conditional upon (i) the board of directors of the Oslo Stock Exchange approving the application for listing of the Shares in the Bank in its meeting expected to be held on 22 October 2015 and the satisfaction of the conditions for admission to trading set by the Oslo Stock Exchange, which are expected to be that (a) the Bank obtains a minimum of 500 shareholders each holding Shares with a value of more than NOK 10,000, and (b) there is a minimum free float of the Shares of 25%, (ii) the Bank and the Selling Shareholder, in consultation with the Joint Bookrunners, having resolved to proceed with the Offering and approved the Offer Price and the allocation of the Offer Shares to eligible investors following the bookbuilding process, and (iii) the board of directors of the Bank resolving to issue the New Shares in accordance with the authorisation from the general meeting to increase the share capital. There can be no assurance that these conditions for completion of the Offering will be satisfied. If the conditions are not satisfied, the Offering may be revoked or suspended.
The Prospectus will, subject to regulatory restrictions in certain jurisdictions, be available at www.skandiabanken.no, www.carnegie.no, www.seb.no, and www.dnb.no/emisjoner, from the commencement of the bookbuilding period and the application period for the Offering, 19 October 2015 at 09:00 hours (CET). Hard copies of the Prospectus may also be obtained free of charge from the same date by contacting Skandiabanken or one of the Managers.
In the period from 30 June 2015 to 30 September 2015, developments in Skandiabanken's result of operations and loan book have been in line with management's expectations. With respect to Skandiabanken's financial performance in the three month period ended 30 September 2015 (all figures are unaudited):
(i) Net interest income amounted to NOK 242 million.
(ii) The Bank's loan book stood at NOK 55,122 million as at 30 September 2015, of which home loans, car loans, consumer loans and other credit products constituted NOK 51,575 million, NOK 1,400 million, NOK 598 million and NOK 1,550 million, respectively.
(ii) The consumer loan balance increased from NOK 368 million as at 30 June 2015 to NOK 598 million as at 30 September 2015.
(iv) Deposits and borrowings from customers decreased to NOK 45,395 million during the three month period ended 30 September 2015. The decrease compared to the period ended 30 June 2015 was expected as the holiday pay Norwegian citizens receive in June is used during the summer.
One-off items related to the separation and listing process continued in the three months ended 30 September 2015. Management estimates that the total cost of the separation and listing process will be approximately NOK 140 million. This estimate includes NOK 37.5 million in separation and listing related costs recognised as administrative expenses prior to 30 June 2015. For the three month period ended 30 September 2015, the Bank expects to recognise approximately NOK 38 million in separation and listing expenses. The remaining separation and listing related expenses, estimated to NOK 64.5 million (estimate includes approximately NOK 40 million in estimated costs for entry into the Norwegian Bank's Guarantee Fund), are expected to be recognised during the three month period ended 31 December 2015.
