Participants are offered a general discount of NOK 1,500 on their total share purchase. In addition, a price reduction of 25 percent of the share price will apply in exchange for the purchased shares being subject to a three year lock-up period. The purchase will be financed by a loan from Aker Solutions to be settled by salary deductions over a twelve-month period.

Aker Solutions will also offer selected managers the opportunity to buy additional shares worth as much as 25 percent of their annual base salary. A price reduction of 25 percent of the share price will apply in exchange for the purchased shares being subject to a three-year lock-up period. The managers are responsible for the financing and upfront cash settlement of these purchases.

The subscription period for both programs is November 5-20, 2015.

The company will purchase own shares in the open market for onwards sale to participants under the programs.
