NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, HONG KONG OR JAPAN, OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL OR WOULD REQUIRE REGISTRATION OR OTHER MEASURES. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF ANY OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN.

Reference is made to the stock exchange release published by Insr Insurance Group ASA ("Insr" or the "Company") on 27 November 2017 where (i) the Company announced that the Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authority (the "NFSA") had approved the acquisition of 100% of the shares in Nemi Forsikring AS (the "Transaction"), (ii) that closing of the Transaction and the issuance of the 12,857,142 consideration shares to Alpha Insurance A/S (the "Consideration Shares") were expected to take place on or about 30 November 2017, (iii) that the share capital increase related to the issuance of 57,200,000 new shares (the "Private Placement Shares") in the NOK 400,400,000 private placement (the "Private Placement ") was expected to be registered in the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises on or about 29 November 2017, and (iv) that the Private Placement Shares were expected to be delivered to the investors against payment on or about 30 November 2017.

The NFSA has today approved a prospectus dated 28 November 2017 which has been prepared in connection with the listing of the Private Placement Shares and the Consideration Shares and the offering and listing of the Offer Shares described below.

The board of directors of the Company has, as previously announced, resolved to conduct a subsequent offering of up to 5,714,285 new shares (the "Offer Shares") at a subscription price of NOK 7.00 per share (the "Repair Offering"), subject to completion of the Transaction and the Private Placement. The Repair Offering is directed at shareholders of the Company as of 29 August 2017, as registered in VPS on 31 August 2017 (the "Record Date") who have not been allocated shares in the Private Placement and who are not resident in a jurisdiction where such offering would be unlawful, or would (in jurisdictions other than Norway) require any prospectus filing, registration or similar action (the "Eligible Shareholders"). Each Eligible Shareholder will be granted one non-transferable allocation right (the “Allocation Rights”) for each 7.01 existing share registered as held by such Eligible Shareholder as of the Record Date. The number of Allocation Rights granted to each Eligible Shareholder will be rounded down to the nearest whole Allocation Right. Each Allocation Right gives the right to subscribe for, and be allocated, one Offer Share. Over-subscription will be permitted; however, there can be no assurance that Offer Shares will be allocated for such subscriptions. Offer Shares will not be allocated to subscribers without Allocation Rights. The subscription period for the Repair Offering will commence at 09:00 hours (CET) on 4 December 2017 and end at 12:00 hours (CET) on 13 December 2017.

ABG Sundal Collier ASA has acted as the sole manager and bookrunner in the Private Placement and acts as the sole manager in the Repair Offering.

The prospectus, including the subscription form for the Repair Offering, will be available from 29 November 2017 at www.insr.io and www.abgsc.com, and will also be available free of charge at the business offices of the Company, Haakon VII's gate 2, 0161 Oslo, Norway.
