Klövern has mandated Nordea and Swedbank to arrange fixed income investor meetings starting on 20 October 2016. A SEK denominated senior unsecured capital markets transaction may follow, subject to market conditions (the "New Issue Transaction"). Furthermore, Klövern announces its invitation to holders (the "Holders") of its outstanding SEK 1,150,000,000 FRN bonds due 19 January 2017 (ISIN: SE0004868453)(the "January 2017 bonds") to tender their January 2017 bonds for cash, subject to the conditions outlined below. Holders are hereby offered to participate in the New Issue Transaction.

Early Redemption
Conditional upon the consummation of the New Issue Transaction, Klövern intends to make an early redemption of the January 2017 bonds in accordance with the Terms & Conditions dated 19 October  2012. The January 2017 bonds will in an early redemption event be redeemed at a price equal to 100.00 per cent. of the nominal amount (plus accrued and unpaid interest from, but excluding, the preceding interest payment date until, and including, the relevant early redemption date).

Tender Offer
For every nominal SEK 1,000,000 of bonds in the New Issue Transaction irrevocably subscribed by a Holder, Klövern agrees to purchase from that Holder nominally SEK 1,000,000 of the January 2017 bonds at a fixed cash price equal to 100.250 per cent. of the nominal amount (plus an amount equal to any accrued and unpaid interest from, but excluding, the preceding interest payment date until, and including, the relevant settlement date) (the "Tender Offer"). Holders may receive priority allocation for the aggregate principal amount of bonds subscribed for in the New Issue Transaction in relation to January 2017 bonds tendered to Klövern.

The New Issue Transaction proceeds will be used for the refinancing of the January 2017 bonds and for general corporate purposes. The acceptance of bonds for purchase pursuant to the Tender Offer is conditional on the successful completion, determined by Klövern, of the New Issue Transaction, on terms satisfactory to Klövern in its sole discretion. Holders can only participate in the Tender Offer by submitting a valid tender instruction.

Deadline

The Tender Offer expires at 17.00 CET on Tuesday 25 October 2016, unless extended, re-opened, withdrawn or terminated at the sole discretion of Klövern. Klövern will announce the results and whether any of the January 2017 bonds will be accepted for the offer as soon as reasonably practicable after the pricing of the New Issue Transaction. Settlement for any purchase of January 2017 bonds pursuant to the Tender Offer is expected to take place on the same date as the settlement of bonds subscribed for in the New Issue Transaction and will be no later than Wednesday 9 November 2016.

Subject to applicable law, Klövern may, in its sole and absolute discretion, extend, re-open, amend or waive any condition of or terminate the Tender Offer at any time.
