Stockmann plc (the “Issuer” or “Stockmann”) gives conditional notice that it will redeem in full its outstanding EUR 150 million 3.375 per cent notes due 2018 (ISIN: FI4000051057) (the "Notes") (the "Early Redemption").

Capitalised terms used herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the consent solicitation memorandum dated 16 November 2017 (the “Consent Solicitation Memorandum”).

The Early Redemption Settlement Date is set to 12 December 2017. As determined in the manner described in the terms and conditions of the Notes and with reference to a fixed purchase yield of 0.58 per cent, all Notes will be redeemed at the Redemption Price of EUR 1,007.38 per each EUR 1,000.00 in principal amount of Notes. Any accrued and unpaid interest will also be paid in respect of the Notes in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Notes.

The Redemption Price will be paid to each investor who is registered as a Noteholder in the noteholders’ register maintained by Euroclear Finland at end of business on 11 December 2017.

The Early Consent Fee of 0.20 per cent in respect of the Notes will be paid no later than 10 days following the Early Redemption Settlement Date to eligible Noteholders in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Consent Solicitation, as fully described in the Consent Solicitation Memorandum.

This notice of Early Redemption is conditional on the successful settlement of the issue of the EUR 250 million senior secured notes announced earlier today (the "New Notes"). No separate announcement will be released if this condition has been fulfilled.
