Arctic Paper S.A. Q4, 2023 - preliminary results*: Strengthened positions in uncertain times

[1]Arctic Paper S.A. reports in PLN. In the English press release, the amounts above were converted to EUR at the average rates for the quarter respectively. “Arctic Paper will continue to drive our strategic diversification in energy and packaging, while maintaining our strong positions in paper and pulp.” Michal Jarczyński, CEO Preliminary selected financial results: Arctic Paper Group & Arctic Paper (paper segment) []PLN (million) Q4, 2023 Q4, 2022 Changes FY 2023 FY 2022Sales revenue, Arctic 825,9 1 085,1 -259,2 3 549,2 4 894,3Paper GroupSales revenue Arctic 581,2 770,0 -188,8 2 460,4 3 580,0Paper (paper segment)EBITDA, Arctic Paper 96,3 140,0 -43,7 475,3 974,0GroupEBITDA Arctic Paper 119,8 122,3 -2,5 375,8 685,2(paper segment)EBIT, Arctic Paper 67,1 109,3 -42,2 357,1 843,0GroupEBIT Arctic Paper 97,3 101,8 -4,5 292,3 605,2(paper segment)Net profit, Arctic 35,6 74,8 -39,2 272,4 756,8Paper GroupNet profit, Arctic 60,8 70,3 -9,5 264,3 519,6Paper (paper segment)Net profit per 0,69 1,05 -0,36 3,57 9,11share[2] (PLN/share)Net debt -347,5 -276,2 -71,3 -347,5 -276,2 [2] Net profit per share: net profit for the paper segment plus 51% of the net profit for Rottneros divided by the number of shares. The year 2023 ended as it begun, with a mixed picture due to the uncertainty affecting the general economy. For the fourth quarter, Arctic Paper’s consolidated sales decreased to PLN 825.9 million (1,085.1 million), although it is worth noting that the comparative quarter was one of the best in the Group’s history. EBITDA reached PLN 96.3 million (140.0), corresponding to an EBITDA-margin of 11.7 percent (12.9). The paper segment outperformed the pulp segment, reminding us of the advantages of combining the two segments as the fluctuations balance each other. For the full year, the Group's consolidated sales reached PLN 3,549.2 million (4,894.3 million) with an EBITDA of PLN 475.3 million (974.0 million) and an EBITDA margin of 13.4 percent (19.9). This makes 2023 the second-best year in the Group's history. Given Arctic Paper's strong financial position, the management board can recommend a dividend of PLN 1.0 (2.7) without compromising the ambitious investment program for the Group. Although the paper segment's sales decreased to PLN 581.2 million (770.0 million) compared to the exceptional period last year, EBITDA remained stable at PLN 119.8 million (122.3 million) and the EBITDA margin increased to 20.6 percent (15.9). The positive development is a result of our continued focus on efficiency and cost optimizing. The fourth quarter is normally weaker, but this year we saw positive signals of a change in demand on the paper market. For Rottneros – the pulp segment – revenue for the fourth quarter decreased to SEK 637 million (730 million). EBITDA amounted to -76 MSEK (31) due to lower pulp prices, higher variable costs, and the annual maintenance shutdown in Vallvik. For the full year, sales reached SEK 2,755 million (2,980) with an EBITDA of SEK 252 million (691) thanks to volume growth and cost efficiency. During the period, the list price for NBSK has strengthened and reached 1,300 USD in January 2024. For the packaging segment, the investment in a new production unit for molded fiber trays in Kostrzyn is delayed due to longer delivery times for the equipment. We expect production to begin in Q3, 2024. During the period, a financing agreement was reached regarding the investments in upgrading the biomass plant and in supplementary production of wood pellets at the mill in Grycksbo. The 17 MWh solar project in Kostrzyn will be completed in the second quarter of 2024, and we are working to expand our portfolio of renewable energy projects to achieve self-sufficiency. We will continue to grow in the energy segment. We have entered a new year, but the uncertainty that affected our operations in 2023 remains. However, the Group is stronger than ever, and Arctic Paper will continue to drive our strategic diversification in energy and packaging, while maintaining our strong positions in paper and pulp. As the green transition accelerates driven by both customer demands and new EU-regulations, it is more important than ever to have the financial strength to invest. Therefore, we look to the future with confidence. Michal Jarczyński, CEO of Arctic Paper S.A.

SCOTT BALL: In 2023, Citycon continued to demonstrate the strength of its strategy and portfolio as all operational metrics (sales, footfall, rents, occupancy, collections) continue to show sustained growth. Importantly, like-for-like net rental income grew 6.5 % and standing net rental income with comparable FX rate increased 6.0 % in 2023 compared to the previous year. The strong operational performance reflects the stability of our necessity-based centres focused on serving as a centre for the community as well as a last mile logistics hub for delivery of grocery, municipal, and other services. Our properties also possess excellent access to public transportation and locations in the strongest and fast-growing cities in the Nordics.For the year, like-for-like tenant sales increased by 3.4% and footfall 1.8% compared to the previous year. Notably, tenant sales are already 9.2% above 2019 levels. At the same time, we experienced strong demand for our centres from both new and existing tenants, as evidenced by our leasing activity with over 132,000 sq.m. of signed leases in 2023, resulting in retail occupancy of 96.0%. Average rent per square meter with comparable FX increased by 1.6 EUR to 24.0 EUR/s.qm. during the year again highlighting the quality and attractiveness of Citycon´s grocery- and municipal-anchored centres and their resilience in a variable market conditions. The rent collection rate remained strong at 99 % for 2023 which reflects the high quality and creditworthiness of Citycon’s tenants.Despite the strong operational result, currencies continued to impact our reported figures. During the year, there has been adverse volatility of the NOK and SEK, which are at twenty-year lows. FX rates had EUR 10.2 million negative impact on our direct operating result in 2023. However, these currencies began to strengthen in the latter part of the year, which, if this trend continues, would provide a tailwind to our operations.Likewise yield expansion significantly impacted the book value of our assets creating a paper loss for 2023. However, this was at least partially offset by actual cash proceeds due to the tremendous rent growth occurring in our assets. Now that spreads have begun to tighten, we anticipate that yields should follow, which provides an additional tailwind for us in 2024. Speaking of asset values, we are in final stages to take over the remaining interest in Kista Galleria in Stockholm, Sweden by assuming the seller’s share of existing debt and a minimal cash payment (EUR 2.5 million). After the transaction, Citycon will have 100% ownership of the centre and that will have approx. EUR 70 million positive effect on our total asset value in Q1 as the transaction is expected to be executed during the first quarter of the year.Looking to our balance sheet, Citycon continued its credit actions to strengthen its investment grade balance sheet. As previously noted, we refinanced and expanded our credit facility in April from EUR 500 million to EUR 650 million, consisting of a EUR 400 million revolver and EUR 250 million term loan. In total, Citycon repurchased EUR 191 million of notional bonds in 2023 through a tender offer from the open market by using approx. EUR 184 million of cash, taking advantage of discounts and dislocation in  secondary trading. Furthermore, in Q4 we signed an approx. SEK 1 020 million 7-year mortgage loan secured by one of our Swedish assets, providing evidence that the secured loan market is functioning well. Additionally, the loan provided liquidity to improve our maturity schedule and our balance sheet as the proceeds from the term loan were used to refinance the company’s near-term maturities.In November and December, we successfully completed two hybrid/equity exchanges where in total EUR 25 million notionals of hybrid bonds were repurchased by issuing new shares. We repurchased the hybrid bonds at a discount compared to the nominal value in exchange for equity at the market value. This transaction highlights our commitment to maintain our investment grade credit rating. In total, we retired EUR 87 million of hybrid debt in 2023. We are pleased that all these credit actions, which continue to mitigate the earnings impact of higher current market interest rates, while also improving our overall balance sheet, were recognized by S&P, who reaffirmed Citycon's investment grade rating with stable outlook. As evidenced by our actions in 2023, further strengthening our balance sheet and credit metrics is for us a top priority.Looking ahead to 2024, we are well positioned with a proven stable business model that has performed well regardless of macroeconomic pressures.  This is enhanced by the fact that 93% of our leases are linked to indexation which will further compound in 2024. Notably, our mix of high credit tenants are less reliant on consumer discretionary spending, which provides significant stability, which is reflected in our results.While we have been able to grow rents due to indexation, the fact that sales have continued to grow means our occupancy cost ratio remains very low (9.5%). This positions Citycon to have compounding rent growth with additional indexation without jeopardizing our tenants’ ability to continue to run profitable businesses.  It is also important to note that, following the completion of the residential towers in Lippulaiva in Q1/2023, we have minimal committed capital expenditures in 2024.Given the stabilization of interest rates and the sizable amount of capital looking for investment opportunities, we anticipate a significant increase in activity in the transaction market in 2024. Based on this expectation we are increasing our previously disclosed divestment target by the end of 2024 with a target of EUR 950 million over the next 24 months. Citycon owns some of the best, most urban, large fortress assets in the Nordics. The 12 largest assets (out of 33) make up approx. 80% of the value of our total assets. We will focus our efforts on these largest properties that offer a much stronger growth trajectory and divest the remaining properties.Further, the following actions will be taken in 2024: 1. Focus on core assets in core markets resulting in the sale of EUR 950 million of assets over the next 24 months. 2. Expense management to offset increase in finance cost, including: a. Consolidating all corporate functions to suburban Helsinki. b. Reduce G&A overhead to annual run rate less than 10% of NRI by year-end 2024. c. Reduction of operating expenses to offset sharp increase in energy price. d. Significant reduction of capex from EUR 96 million in 2023 to approx. EUR 30 million in 2024. e. The completion of current major projects including: i. In Myyrmanni, the opening of 7,300 sq.m. Prisma which results in the centre being practically fully leased with approx. 60% of tenant mix dedicated to grocery. ii. In Rocca al Mare, we are underway with the addition of the Selver grocery store as well as an 1,800 sq.m. gym. These will open by August 2024. iii. In Iso Omena, we will open the first Nike Rise concept store in Finland. iv. In Albertslund centrum in Copenhagen, we will open a Lidl grocery store in summer 2024. Taken together, these factors give us confidence that 2024 results will continue to build on our solid performance in 2023.  Our guidance reflects the benefit from inflation as indexation pushes our rents higher. As a result, our estimated outlook is for 2024 direct operating profit to be in range EUR 185–203 million, EPRA EPS EUR 0.62–0.74 and adjusted EPRA EPS EUR 0.46–0.58.

Valio is launching an extensive RDI project Food 2.0 with Business Finland’s funding to develop a food system of the future

Valio’s role is to initiate and lead wide-ranging cooperation as well as research and development projects with its current and new partners. Hundreds of companies and other operators are connected to the food system in Finland, and the goal is to have at least one hundred partners in the network. Valio’s and the ecosystem’s goal is to invest EUR 100 million more in research and development activities over five years and to increase exports connected to the food system by more than EUR 1 billion in the following years after the project has ended. Valio is the first food company that Business Finland has chosen as a leading company.  “It is important that we reform the food system with all the actors involved, as that is the only way that we will succeed in the change. The global transformation of food production is also an opportunity for Finnish production, as global demand for food and the importance of northern production areas are growing. By being a forerunner in sustainable food production, we can create added value for food produced in Finland while improving its profitability and international competitiveness,” says Tuomas Salusjärvi, EVP, Growth Businesses and R&D at Valio.  “Business Finland wants to be strongly involved in the work aimed at reforming the food system. All our services contribute to strengthening the goals set by this project”, says Business Finland Director-General Nina Kopola.  The global food system is changing  The current global food supply chain is facing challenges: the world’s population is growing, and the need for food is estimated to double by 2050. Extreme weather conditions, especially droughts, will increase with climate change in areas where majority of food is currently produced. Therefore, the importance of northern regions, such as Finland, in food production is growing. Recent global crises, such as the coronavirus pandemic and Russian aggression in Ukraine, disrupt food supply chains and threaten the security of supply. The world situation has also raised the prices of key inputs such as fertilisers and energy. This is why primary producers are struggling with unprecedented profitability challenges in Finland.  At the same time, the environmental impact of food production must be reduced. The entire food system – both plant and animal production – must operate more comprehensively in accordance with the principles of circular economy and resource efficiency.   “At the same time, we need to solve the profitability challenge of food production, meet the demands of the growing export markets and move towards more sustainable production methods. A new, more sustainable food system will build growth for food exports and also create new export opportunities, for example, in circular economy and digitalisation solutions. Rethinking the food system is also essential for the environment and food security,” says Salusjärvi.  In a sustainable food system, nutrients, energy and side streams circulate. The aim is to save natural resources, i.e. to use all resources efficiently and sustainably as well as to keep them in circulation for as long as possible without generating waste. Valio already works hard to achieve this in its own operations, but in the future, we will also need more cooperation between different industries, production methods and companies so that a genuine circular economy can be realised in food production.  Further information:  How can I get involved?  Valio will start building the ecosystem of companies in the food system immediately. The process will begin by launching already identified research and development projects. Later on, Valio will actively strive to create new development paths with partners related to the ecosystem.  The various research projects and other outputs of the Food 2.0 project focus on four themes:  ·Future products  ·Technology transformation  ·Regenerative production  ·Circular economy and resource efficiency  You can participate in the food system reform, for example, in projects initiated by the ecosystem. You can join by contacting Research Manager Riitta Partanen (riitta.partanen@valio.fi).  Find out more about the food system of the future on Valio’s info page  (English summary and downloadable information material at the bottom of the page).

Wärtsilä-led EUR 200 million collaboration ecosystem to develop autonomous zero-emission balancing solutions for the energy transition

Technology group Wärtsilä will lead a five-year collaboration of more than 200 Finnish companies, industrial organisations, research institutes, and universities. The partners in this “Wide & Intelligent Sustainable Energy” (WISE) project will together develop innovative clean energy concepts. The consortium intends to strengthen the Finnish energy sector to become a world-leader in energy innovation by building a scalable ecosystem and by introducing secure and autonomous zero-emission balancing power generation. The project aims to make a significant global impact in enabling the energy transition towards a fully decarbonised future. Wärtsilä’s goal is to offer flexible autonomous power plant concepts with the capability to operate with 100 percent e-fuel, such as green hydrogen and its derivatives, by the end of 2028. “A decarbonised energy sector is inevitable in the future. The only question is when we will get there. The WISE initiative brings together industry expertise plus research and academic know-how to accelerate the trend. It gives us a unique opportunity to become the leading powerhouse for the energy transition,” says Anders Lindberg, President, Wärtsilä Energy. An autonomously operated balancing power generation system will be developed as part of the overall renewable-based system. New service models for the revised operating environment will also be developed. The key enabler for this development will be to have the digital infrastructure, edge computing, energy management, and system optimisation working in seamless harmony. The ecosystem will evaluate commercial and delivery considerations, along with further technology options, to create viable business models. The partners are together investing EUR 200 million in the research by 2028, of which Wärtsilä’s share is EUR 100 million. It is expected that this investment will enable an R&D increase of some EUR 350 million in long-term to support Wärtsilä’s vision of a 100 percent renewable energy future. The project has been initiated by Business Finland, a public organisation under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. Since 2020, Business Finland has launched competitions calling for leading companies to solve significant future challenges together with collaboration networks and to increase their research, development, and innovation investments in Finland. Wärtsilä will lead the latest collaboration project known as WISE.

Viking Line Abp: Financial Statement Release 2023

Viking Line Abp               FINANCIAL STATEMENT RELEASE           16.02.2024, 9.00 AM Viking Line posts historically strong earnings JANUARY-DECEMBER2023 (compared to January–December 2022) · Sales amounted to EUR 491.4 M (EUR 494.7 M). · Other operating revenue was EUR 9.1 M (EUR 24.1 M). · Operating income totalled EUR 55.0 M (EUR 38.3 M). · Net financial items were EUR -9.6 M (EUR -10.3 M). · Income before taxes totalled EUR 45.4 M (EUR 28.0 M). · Income after taxes totalled EUR 36.3 M (EUR 22.7 M). · The Board of Directors proposes a dividend of 1 euro per share, which corresponds to 48% of earnings.  Outlook for the financial year 2024 There continues to be significant uncertainty due to the geopolitical situation and the impact this has on energy prices, inflation, interest rates and currencies as well as the effects these uncertainty factors may have on people’s propensity to travel, demand, consumption patterns and costs. In early 2023, Rosella was sold. Provided energy prices remain at current levels and there is a sustained propensity to travel, the Board expects income before taxes in 2024 to be on a par with the figure for 2023 if the EUR 8.6 M capital gain from the sale of Rosella in 2023 is not included. FOURTH QUARTER 2023 (compared to fourth quarter 2022) · Sales amounted to EUR 112.2 M (EUR 124.5 M). · Other operating revenue was EUR 0.3 M (EUR 15.2 M). · Operating income totalled EUR 2.7 M (EUR 19.4 M). · Net financial items were EUR -0.6 M (EUR -2.9 M). · Income before taxes amounted to EUR 2.0 M (EUR 16.5 M including the EUR 15.0 M capital gain from Amorella)). · Income after taxes totalled EUR 1.7 M (EUR 13.2 M).  COMMENTS FROM PRESIDENT AND CEO JAN HANSES The financial year 2023 was a very good year, the best since the company was listed in 1995. Income before taxes totalled EUR 45.4 M. The fourth quarter of the year turned out as expected, which means that we could meet our full-year forecast with far better earnings than in 2022. Passenger and cargo volumes remained stable despite a smaller number of vessels, while planned sales prices were achieved. In late October and November, passenger demand weakened temporarily before recovering in December. This was a market trend that affected all operators in our service area. Bunker (vessel fuel) prices have gradually fallen, but are still very high relative to pre-pandemic levels and Russia’s war on Ukraine. Furthermore, the troubled state of the world, including the war in Ukraine, has had a small impact on our market. On August 9, we announced that Viking Line and Gotlandsbolaget would form a joint venture entrusted with the task of developing and providing cruises with the former Birka Stockholm. Meanwhile, it was agreed with Gotlandsbolaget that Viking Line would acquire 50% of the ship for EUR 19 M. On August 23, the joint venture was approved by the Swedish Competition Authority and rigorous work got under way. The work has continued according to plan, and the vessel was rechristened Birka Gotland, with the joint venture taking the name Gotland Alandia Cruises. Service will launch on March 20, 2024. At the same time, Viking Cinderella, which has undergone a major dry-docking, will launch service on the Helsinki-Mariehamn–Stockholm route. The number of passengers who travelled with the company in 2023 totalled 4.9 million, which is a very good result given our reduced capacity, with fewer vessels than the year before. During the summer, there were even periods where there was a lack of capacity. Nearly 1.8 million passengers sailed during the period June–August, and many departures during the summer holiday season sold out well in advance. Viking Grace and Viking Glory had the biggest passenger increase during the year, on the Turku–Åland-Stockholm route, with 2,123,647 passengers. Viking Line’s market share here was 72%. Viking Glory, which launched service in 2022, still has the appeal of a novelty and is a well-loved vessel. The pairing of Viking Glory and Viking Grace makes for a strong combination on this route. Starting in 2024, our traffic will fall under the EU’s Emissions Trading System (ETS). This entails a cost burden that we can only partly offset in the medium term with continued energy efficiency work. Fossil-free fuel in a quantity and at a price that are economically viable does not exist. The implementation of a limited-term island exemption from the Emissions Trading System for traffic between Finland and Åland is thus well justified since the transition to fossil-free fuel is not driven by the cost of emission rights but by the supply of alternative fossil-free fuels. We do not intend to lower our ambitions to reduce emissions from our traffic when the island exemption is implemented – on the contrary, we will make use of cost savings to continue our work towards the transition to fossil-free fuel and increased energy efficiency. Viking Line has started to buy emission rights. To summarize, I can note that the past financial year has been very strong even excluding the income effect of EUR 8.6 M from the sale of Rosella. For 2024, our forecast is earnings on a par with 2023 (excluding Rosella’s capital gain) even though the year will be affected by emission rights costs and start-up costs for traffic with Birka Gotland. Our good earnings and post-pandemic recovery in operations enable investments in new environmental technology and innovations. I would like to extend my warm thanks to our customers and partners for their faith in us and our good collaboration. A big thank you also goes to our engaged personnel, who contributed to our earnings with their fine work.

For much of this period, Viking Line operated with two fewer vessels (Amorella and Rosella) than in 2022. Viking Grace was dry-docked for the period January 16 to February 12. During this time, the vessel was replaced by Viking Cinderella on the Turku-Mariehamn/Långnäs-Stockholm route. After this, Viking Cinderella returned to its normal day cruise service between Stockholm and Mariehamn. Rosella operated between Mariehamn and Kapellskär until January 8, after which it was taken out of service. Viking XPRS was out of service for three days in conjunction with its being removed from the Estonian bare-boat register on March 6 and then entered into the Åland Register of Ships. Viking XPRS has sailed under a Finnish flag since March 6. During the summer period, both Gabriella and Viking Cinderella made a number of destination cruises, including to Visby, Sweden’s High Coast, Bornholm and Åland. During the period June 29 to August 6, Viking Cinderella served in tandem with Gabriella on the Helsinki-Mariehamn-Stockholm route, calling at Tallinn. On August 7, Viking Cinderella returned to its normal day cruise service between Stockholm and Mariehamn and also made a number of charter and special cruises, including to Sweden’s High Coast and Visby/Ystad. In 2022, Viking Glory launched service on the Turku-Mariehamn/Långnäs-Stockholm route on March 1 and has served the route in tandem with Viking Grace since then. Amorella terminated its service on the same route on February 28, 2022. Both Viking Glory and Viking Grace were taken out of operation for planned service work in September 2023. During the comparative period, January 17 to February 23, 2022, Viking Cinderella served the Turku-Mariehamn/Långnäs-Stockholm route, before returning to its normal cruise service between Stockholm and Mariehamn on February 24. The total number of passengers on the Group’s vessels during the report period was 4,897,494 (4,945,564). The Group had a total market share in its service area of approximately 35.1% (37.2%). Market demand for travel was good from the start of 2023, and the international markets in particular grew compared to 2022. During the autumn, some volatility was noted in market demand, which we believe was mainly an effect of weaker household finances. The Group’s total cargo volume was 125,269 cargo units (117,777). The Group’s share of the cargo market was approximately 16.9% (14.7%). Total demand for cargo in our service area decreased compared to the same period in 2022 due to uncertain economic conditions in the region. Nonetheless, the number of cargo units transported by Viking Line increased. The market share for passenger cars was approximately 28.8% (32.8%). The decrease is largely due to the closing of the short-haul Kapellskär-Mariehamn route. SALES AND EARNINGS FOR JANUARY – DECEMBER 2023 Consolidated sales decreased 0.7% to EUR 491.4 M during the period January 1–December 31, 2023 (EUR 494.7 M January 1–December 31, 2022). For much of the year, the Group operated with fewer vessels than in 2022. With a comparable number of vessels, sales increased 13.2%. Operating income totalled EUR 55.0 M (EUR 38.3 M). Consolidated income before tax was EUR 45.4 M (EUR 28.0 M). During the period, Rosella was sold, which had a positive income effect of EUR 8.6 M. Passenger-related revenue decreased 0.4% to EUR 442.5 M (EUR 444.4 M), while cargo sales were EUR 45.7 M (EUR 47.4 M) and other operating revenue was EUR 3.2 M (EUR 2.9 M). The sales contribution was EUR 377.7 M (EUR 377.3 M). Operating expenses decreased 9.6% to EUR 304.3 M (EUR 336.5 M). Salary and other employment benefit expenses increased 3.6% or EUR 3.7 M, which is due in part to the reflagging of Viking XPRS. Other operating expenses decreased 15.5% or EUR 35.9 M. The decrease in operating expenses is largely due to lower fuel costs, which decreased 36.9% or EUR 35.6 M. In January and February 2022, the Group received aid for public service obligations from Traficom, the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency, for the Group’s vessels on the Turku–Mariehamn/Långnäs–Stockholm and Mariehamn-Kapellskär routes. In June 2022, the Group received EUR 2.1 M in State aid, which consisted of aid for uncovered fixed costs during the period December 2021–February 2022. The aid is recognized as State aid under other operating revenue. SALES AND EARNINGS FOR FOURTH QUARTER 2023 Consolidated sales decreased 9.9% to EUR 112.2 M during the period October 1–December 31, 2023 (EUR 124.5 M October 1–December 31, 2022). Operating income totalled EUR 2.7 M (EUR 19.4 M). Income was stable in a volatile market where there is great uncertainty due to the geopolitical and security policy situation. The sale of Amorella in 2022 had a positive income effect of EUR 15.0 M. Passenger-related revenue decreased 10.5% to EUR 99.5 M (EUR 111.1 M), while cargo revenue was EUR 11.9 M (EUR 12.6 M) and other revenue was EUR 0.8 M (EUR 0.8 M). The decrease in passenger-related revenue is due to a fewer number of ships than in 2022. The sales contribution was EUR 85.4 M (EUR 95.1 M). Operating expenses decreased 9.3% to EUR 76.0 M (EUR 83.8 M). Salary and other employment benefit expenses increased 8.1% or EUR 2.1 M, which is due in part to the reflagging of Viking XPRS. Other operating expenses decreased 16.9% or EUR 9.9 M, with fuel costs decreasing 37.6% or EUR 9.0 M.  INVESTMENTS AND FINANCING The Group’s investments for the period January 1–December 31, 2023, amounted to EUR 36.9 M (EUR 25.5 M). The Group’s total investments represented 7.5% of sales (5.2%). Viking Line and Gotlandsbolaget formed a joint venture, Gotland Alandia Cruises AB, which is entrusted with the task of developing and providing cruises with Birka Stockholm between Stockholm-Mariehamn and Stockholm-Mariehamn-Visby. In March 2023, Gotlandsbolaget acquired Birka Stockholm for EUR 38 M. In August 2023, Gotlandsbolaget sold 50% of the vessel to Viking Line for EUR 19 M, which was financed by Viking Line’s cash holdings. The vessel has been rechristened Birka Gotland. Most other investments are attributable to the dry-docking of Viking Grace and cabin upgrades on both Gabriella and Cinderella. Viking Cinderella, which currently provides cruise service from Stockholm to Mariehamn, will be reassigned to the Helsinki–Mariehamn–Stockholm route in the spring of 2024. The Group’s long-term interest-bearing liabilities on December 31, 2023, totalled EUR 150.6 M (EUR 186.3 M). The debt/equity ratio was 51.4%, compared to 47.2% in 2022. The Group’s cash and cash equivalents at the end of December totalled EUR 85.3 M (EUR 89.0 M). Unutilized credit lines in the Group totalled EUR 0.1 M (EUR 0.1 M). Net cash flow from operating activities was EUR 67.1 M (EUR 28.4 M). Net cash flow from investing activities was EUR -24.5 M (EUR 0.2 M) and net cash flow from financing activities was EUR -46.3 M (EUR -54.1 M). Most of the Group’s loan agreements include loan covenants according to market terms. The financial covenants in the loan agreements consist of minimum requirements for liquidity and solvency and a maximum net financial debt-to-EBITDA ratio. The dividend restriction in one of the Group’s loan agreements continues to apply in the event the Group’s debt-to-EBITDA ratio exceeds 5.0. The Group’s debt-to-EBITDA ratio is below 5.0, so the dividend restriction does not apply. Viking Line’s Abp’s shareholding in Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö has exceeded 20% since November 22, so Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö has been recognized as a company with a participating interest undertaking using the equity method since then. An initial positive income effect of EUR 2.5 M arose in the transition. RISKS AND RISK MANAGEMENT Viking Line’s operations are exposed to different kinds of risks, which vary in their scope and impact on operations, financial results and the company’s ability to meet certain social and environmental objectives. The relevant risks have been classified into four categories: strategic, operational, damage and financial risks. Strategic risks Changes in the geopolitical situation, the heightened security policy situation and the impact this has on energy prices, inflation and people’s propensity to travel as well as changes in maritime policy, regulations and other laws, in climate change, in the competition situation and the market trend can have a negative and significant impact on demand for the Group’s products and services and on its earnings, cash flow and financial position. Demand for the company’s services and products is also affected by megatrends. For example, increased awareness of climate change and environmental protection can affect the public’s view of ferry service. For most of our customers. our operations also constitute a leisure good rather than a utility good, which is substitutable, so consumers can choose other alternatives. Seasonal fluctuations during the year affect Viking Line’s business operations. Third quarter earnings usually account for the largest share of earnings for the year. Political decisions can change Viking Line’s operating conditions with potentially negative consequences for business operations. However, Åland’s tax exemption, which enables duty-free sales on board vessels in service to and from the Åland Islands, is permanent. The European Commission’s guidelines to promote maritime transport, which enable the net salary system for seafarers, are in effect until further notice. Finnish maritime transport is governed by environmental regulations in the International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s rules, EU directives, HELCOM recommendations and national laws. We actively monitor the drafting of environmental regulations, advances in environmental technology and the solutions that research provides to meet ever more stringent environmental regulations. As of January 1, 2024, maritime transport is included in the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) for greenhouse gas emissions. ETS is one of the instruments the EU uses to achieve its own climate goals and meet its international commitments in the Paris Agreement. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of vessels will gradually be phased into the ETS between 2024 and 2026, after which time all emissions will be included. Starting in 2024, Viking Line Abp will surrender allowances that cover 40% (70% in 2025 and 100% in 2026) of its fleet’s verified GHG emissions to the relevant regulatory authority, which for Viking Line is the Finnish Energy Authority. The Finnish parliament has approved the application of the so-called island exemption, which means that emissions generated by traffic between the Finnish mainland and Åland are exempt from the requirement to surrender emission allowances. Significant parts of the traffic on the Turku-Stockholm and Helsinki-Stockholm routes are thus exempt from the ETS. The island exemption will be in effect until December 31, 2030. The price of emission rights is affected by many factors, including a gradual reduction in total emission allowances in the free market, which is built into the ETS. The price may also be affected by various external factors, such as geopolitical or energy policy decisions. Starting January 1, 2025, the FuelEU Maritime Regulation will apply to European maritime shipping. The regulation is focused on the energy used by vessels, and the intention is to gradually phase out fossil energy while phasing a percentage of renewable or emission-free energy carriers into the European fleet’s energy mix. The vessels covered by the regulation shall achieve predetermined improvements in their GHG intensity. Requirements will be raised after each five-year period following a non-linear curve. The requirement is initially a 2% decrease in GHG intensity for the first five-year period compared to the reference year, 2020. Starting in 2050, the GHG intensity of vessels should decrease 80% compared to the reference year. Penalties will be charged to ship owners if there is non-compliance, with the amount determined by the level of the vessel’s environmental underperformance. Penalties will increase each year the vessel underperforms, and the size of the penalty could have a significant impact on profitability. Emission-free maritime fuel or technologies that use these fuels are not available today. In practice, the regulation for European maritime shipping entails the use of a mix of bio-based or alternative fuels and fossil fuels. The price and availability of alternative and renewable fuels will be key issues in the future. Operational risks The Group’s business operations are dependent on functioning logistics and IT systems for both external communication and the day-to-day management of operations. Cyber intrusion, malfunctions and disruptions can cause interruptions in operations and have potential consequences. Cyberattacks are a growing and ever-changing global problem. Disruptions in service or IT communication can have a negative impact on the Group’s earnings. Viking Line endeavours to minimize the risk of lengthy unplanned service interruptions by means of continuous vessel maintenance, a well-developed safety and security system, training and regular exercises. Risks in information management are minimized by developing appropriate security systems and alternative working methods as well as efforts to ensure the reliability of computer systems. Hiring, retaining and developing a skilled labour force are critical to success. The loss of key employees and inability to attract new employees can harm the Group’s operations. Damage risks Maritime safety and security is guided by our safety and security policy, which has top priority in Viking Line’s operations. Through our International Safety Management Code (ISMC) and International Ship & Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) management systems, we work systematically to identify potential risk situations and consequently prevent accidents. Our goal is to continuously improve safety and security. Viking Line has a zero vision when it comes to different kinds of crime, harassment and disorderly conduct on board. We work on a continuous basis to realize this vision. A group that has worked with these issues meets regularly, while a team of external experts has also been hired. Viking Line maintains a crisis preparedness plan to prevent and mitigate the consequences of adverse events and crises with serious consequences for passengers, staff, traffic, property, the environment, operations and trust in the company. The crisis preparedness plan is characterized by an effective alert system that quickly establishes the central crisis management organization in the company. In crisis situations, this central crisis management organization works in close cooperation with the relevant government agencies. Various organizations, companies and specialists are hired as needed to provide support and assistance in the crisis work. Communication, information and crisis support are key aspects of the crisis management organization’s work. In order to be effective and maintain stamina despite the physical and mental pressure, the organization undergoes training on a continuous basis. The work of the crisis management organization is aimed at saving lives, avoiding injuries and damage to the environment and property, and ensuring that rescue measures are so effective that operations can return to a normal situation as soon as possible without damaging the company’s brand. The Group’s vessels are recognized in the balance sheet at a carrying amount of EUR 435.3 M (429.6 M). The vessels have hull and machinery insurance plus increased value insurance totalling EUR 675.0 M (686.0 M). In addition, all vessels have strike/delay insurance, protection and indemnity (P&I) and Passenger Liability Regulation (PLR) insurance. Financial risks The Group is also exposed to various financial risks, among them fluctuations in currency exchange rates and interest rates. Sales revenue is generated in euros and Swedish kronor. Most of the operating inflow and outflow of cash and cash equivalents consist of euros. Purchase prices of goods for sale and bunker (vessel fuel) are affected by other currencies, especially the US dollar. Fluctuations in bunker prices have a direct effect on consolidated earnings. To mitigate the risk of increased bunker prices somewhat, on December 31, 2023, the Group had entered into fixed price contracts for bunker purchases that are in effect for the beginning of 2024. The company’s ability to meet the requirements set in existing financial agreements depends on its ability to generate a positive cash flow and earnings from its operations, which depend in part on factors that are beyond the company’s control. The company’s interest-bearing liabilities amounted to EUR 187.3 M on December 31, 2023, 80.6% of which have a variable interest rate. The total variable interest rate consists of the market interest rate plus a margin that is specific to the company. Fluctuations in interest rates can have a negative effect on the company’s costs of funding and increase funding costs in the future. DISCLOSURE UNDER THE EU’S TAXONOMY REGULATION The EU Taxonomy Regulation (EU) 2020/852) took effect on January 1, 2022, for two of the six environmental objectives concerning climate change (climate change mitigation and climate change adaptation). On January 1, 2023, the Regulation also took effect for the four remaining environmental objectives: sustainable use and protection of water and marine resources; transition to a circular economy; pollution prevention and control; and protection and restoration of biodiversity and ecosystems. The Taxonomy Regulation established a classification system (taxonomy) for environmentally sustainable economic activities. The taxonomy is a framework for steering capital flows towards in investments in sustainable operations; managing financial risks as a result of climate change, natural disasters and social problems; and promoting openness and long-term engagement in economic operations. Viking Line discloses information about such environmentally sustainable economic activities as defined in the taxonomy in accordance with the EU’s Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD). Viking Line discloses information about what proportion of its sales (turnover), capital expenditures (CapEx) and operational expenditures (CapEx) is derived from or related to economic activities considered to be eligible for and compliant with the Taxonomy Regulation and its delegated acts. In order to be in compliance with the taxonomy requirements, the company’s economic activities must meet the technical screening criteria, comply with the Do No Significant Harm principle and meet minimum safeguards. In 2023, the European Commission published an Environmental Delegated Regulation and a Regulation Amending the Climate Delegated Relegation. In the Climate Delegated Relegation ((EU) 2021/2139), technical screening criteria are established for maritime transport. The technical screening criteria for maritime transport have been developed to include the most recent regulations in the International Maritime Organization’s Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI Phase 3) and the requirement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the FuelEU Maritime Regulation. The updated technical screening criteria include alternative fuels, which were previously left out of the taxonomy, to a greater extent. Alternative fuels play a crucial role in the shipping industry’s climate transition, and Viking Line considers the addition to be both welcome and necessary. The Taxonomy Regulation and reporting practices will continue to be developed going forward. Viking Line is closely following this development process and will disclose information in accordance with these requirements and meet the criteria to the extent this is possible in the future as well. Key performance indicators used in the taxonomy Viking Line reports on two activities, 6.10 “Sea and coastal freight water transport, vessels for port operations and auxiliary activities” and 6.11 “Sea and coastal freight and passenger water transport”. As the company interprets it, the descriptions of these operations exclude economic activities that are significant to the Group, such as hotel operations and other on-board sales. The company has thus adopted a relatively cautious position on the Group’s operations regarding the scope of the taxonomy. As the company interprets it, activities that are not directly related to or do not facilitate the transport of passengers or goods are considered to be operations not subject to the taxonomy. The company has not included activities related to the bus transport of passengers. Viking Line has restricted sales (turnover) from activities under 6.10 and 6.11 – in other words, activities subject to the taxonomy – mainly to turnover from ticket sales and from freight and vehicle sales. The company has thus excluded retail sales and hotel revenue, except in cases where cabins constitute a significant proportion of services sold. Capital expenditure (CapEx) is based on investments following the cash flow principle, which also includes Viking Line’s investments in new vessels. Only expenditure directly related to vessels and their maintenance is included in CapEx. Operational expenditure (OpEx) consists primarily of vessel maintenance and repair costs. Only costs directly related to the transport of passengers or goods are included, so salary expenses for employees in service jobs are excluded from OpEx. In compiling Viking Line’s key performance indicators (KPIs), turnover and expenditure items have been taken into account only once to avoid double-counting. Research and development related to vessel technology is carried out mainly by the manufacturers. The Group has no actual expenses for research and development. There have been no changes in how Viking Line compiles its most important KPIs since the financial year 2022.

EVENTS AFTER THE BALANCE SHEET DATE The Board of Directors knows of no events after the balance sheet date that could affect the Year-End Report THE BOARD’S PROPOSAL ON DISTRIBUTION OF EARNINGS According to the balance sheet of Viking Line Abp on December 31, 2023, unrestricted equity totalled 136,840,669.10 euros. The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that: A dividend of 1 euro per share be paid                       17,280,000.00 euros The remainder should be retained in unrestricted equity119,560,669.10 euros There have been no material changes in the company’s economic position since the end of the report period. In the Board of Directors’ view, the dividend is justified given the requirements that the nature, scope, financing and risks of operations place on Viking Line’s equity.

Accounting principles This Year-End Report has been prepared in accordance with IFRS accounting principles and consists of a summary of the financial statements for the period in accordance with IAS 34. The Year-End Report has been prepared based on the same accounting principles, estimates and judgements as in the previous Year-End Report unless otherwise stated. Depending on its nature, public aid received is recognized as other operating revenue, compensation to employees or a decrease in advance payments. Changes in IAS and IFRS accounting principles and accounting standards as well as IFRIC interpretations that entered into force during the financial year have had a significant impact on the comparative figures in Group’s year-end financial statements since accounting for Alandia Försäkring Ab, a company that has an associate participating interest undertaking, changed to the IFRS 17 standard. Consolidated equity on December 31, 2022, was adjusted by EUR 2.2 M. For cash and cash equivalents with a short maturity, the carrying amount is considered equal to fair value. The carrying amount of trade receivables and other receivables as well as of trade payables and other liabilities is considered equal to fair value based on the short-term nature of the items. The carrying amount of interest-bearing liabilities is equal to fair value. Joint ventures and companies with a participating interest undertaking are companies over which the investor company can exert a significant influence. Investments in both joint ventures and companies with a participating interest undertaking shall be accounted for using the equity method. During the year, the Group established a new joint venture, Gotland Alandia Cruises AB, as well as a company with a participating interest undertaking, Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö. Gotland Alandia Cruises AB is a joint venture with Gotlandsbolaget with the aim of providing cruise service with Birka Gotland. The investment in Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö was reclassified in the autumn of 2023 as a company with a participating interest undertaking when the company’s shareholding exceeded 20%. See Note 12. The Year-End Report was not subject to an audit. When rounding off items to the nearest EUR 1,000,000, rounding-off differences of EUR+/- 0.1 M may occur. 2. Estimates and judgements In preparing the consolidated financial statements in compliance with IFRS accounting principles, the company’s management must make judgements and estimates about the future that affect the reported amounts for assets and liabilities, revenue and expenses as well as other information. The judgements and estimates contained in the financial statements are based on the management’s best assessment at the time the company’s year-end financial statements were published. The geopolitical situation, with very volatile energy prices, affected both the income statement and balance sheet. It is difficult to determine how long energy prices will fluctuate in this manner and what effects this will have on Viking Line’s future earnings, financial position and cash flow. The actual outcome may deviate from estimates and judgements made. The most important area that entails judgements is valuation of the Group’s vessels. Market valuations are carried out on a regular basis by external assessors. The vessels’ residual values and estimated periods of use are examined yearly and adjusted if they deviate significantly from earlier values. As of November 22, 2023, the company’s shareholding in Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö was accounted for under financial assets at fair value through other income, but after that the holding was reclassified and is now reported as a company with a participating interest undertaking using the equity method. In valuing the Group’s leases, judgements are made as to how the Group will capitalize on any opportunity to extend the lease period or terminate the lease. Judgements are also made as to what discount rate is to be used in calculating the present value of the Group’s lease liability. The size of the Group’s lease liabilities and right-of-use assets, as well as payments on its lease liabilities and depreciation of right-of-use assets, is affected by those judgements. Based on the management’s judgements, there is no need in the financial statements on December 31, 2023, for significant impairment losses in the income statement. 3. Risks and liquidity The Group’s cash and cash equivalents at the end of December totalled EUR 85.3 M (EUR 89.0 M). Unutilized credit lines in the Group totalled EUR 0.1 M on December 31, 2023 (EUR 0.1 M). Net cash flow from operating activities was EUR 67.1 M (EUR 28.4 M). Net cash flow from investing activities was EUR -24.5 M (EUR 0.2 M) and net cash flow from financing activities was EUR -46.3 M (EUR -54.1 M). In August 2023, Viking Line and Gotlandsbolaget formed a joint venture entrusted with the task of developing and providing cruises with Birka Gotland between Stockholm-Mariehamn and Stockholm-Mariehamn-Visby. In March 2023, Gotlandsbolaget acquired Birka Stockholm for EUR 38 M. In August 2023, Gotlandsbolaget sold 50% of the vessel to Viking Line for EUR 19 M, which was financed by Viking Line’s cash holdings. The vessel was rechristened Birka Gotland. During the comparative period, a new credit facility of EUR 40.0 M was drawn, and at the same time four loan facilities totalling EUR 33.0 M were repaid. During the comparative period, the State guarantees for the liquidity loans entered into in 2020 were also ended, and as a result Viking Line was released from the restrictions entailed by the terms and conditions of the State guarantees. In the autumn of 2022, the deferred loan payments agreed in 2020–2021 with the State-owned credit financing company Finnvera Abp and Finland Export Credit for the period July 1, 2020–December 31, 2022, totalling EUR 29.8 M were repaid. Most of the Group’s loan agreements include loan covenants according to market terms. The financial covenants in the loan agreement consist of a minimum liquidity requirement and a maximum total net debt-to-EBITDA ratio for the Group. During the period, these loan covenants met the requirements set. In 2022, the company had an agreement with its financiers on a waiver of the covenant term concerning the maximum total net financial debt-to-EBITDA ratio. During the period, the loan covenant was within the parameters set. The company’s ability to meet the requirements set in existing financial agreements depends on its ability to generate a positive cash flow and earnings from its operations, which depend in part on factors that are beyond the company’s control. There is a risk, if the geopolitical situation deteriorates and energy prices rise substantially in a way similar to that in 2022, that the company will not be able to generate enough cash flow or obtain further financing in order to meet its obligations in accordance with its financial agreements. As of January 1, 2024, maritime transport is included in the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) for greenhouse gas emissions. ETS is one of the instruments the EU uses to achieve its own climate goals and meet its international commitments in the Paris Agreement. As of January 1, 2024, Viking Line will be obliged to surrender allowances for its fleet’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions  to the relevant regulatory authority. The first allowance to be surrendered must take place by September 30, 2025. To reduce its price risk, Viking Line has begun to purchase emission allowances. Holding allowances ties up capital and has a negative effect on liquidity. Viking Line’s operations are exposed to different kinds of risks, which vary in their scope and impact on operations, financial results and the company’s ability to meet certain social and environmental objectives. The relevant risks have been classified into four categories: strategic, operational, damage and financial risks. During the year, geopolitical risks increased to some extent. To partly offset the risk of higher bunker (vessel fuel) prices, on December 31, 2023, the Group had fixed price agreements entered into for bunker purchases which are in effect until early 2024.

The aid is recognized as State aid under other operating revenue. During the comparative period, Amorella was sold and delivered, which had a positive income effect of EUR 15.0 M.

The remaining portion of this loss was used during the year, and there are no longer any losses to be used against future taxable income.

Impairment testing Recognized values for intangible and tangible assets are tested regularly in order to identify any external or internal indications of an impairment loss. If such indications are observed for any asset item, the recoverable amount of the asset is recognized. One of the most important areas that entail judgements is valuation of the Group’s vessels. The management has also made the assessment that there is no need for impairment for the Group’s other non-current assets. 12. Investments accounted for using the equity method During the financial year, Viking Line Abp’s investment in Alandia Försäkring Abp and Alandia Holding Abp generated income of EUR –1.6 M. Under IAS 28.10, the EUR 1.7 M dividend received during the year from Alandia Försäkring Abp results in only a positive cash flow for the Group. Viking Line’s Abp’s shareholding in Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö has exceeded 20% since November 22, so Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö has been recognized as a company with a participating interest undertaking using the equity method since then. An initial positive income effect of EUR 2.5 M arose in the transition. Rederiaktiebolaget Eckerö’s figures for December were not available when Viking Line’s year-end financial statements were prepared so the company has not included any share in earnings and considers the impact on Viking Line to be immaterial. On August 9, 2023, Viking Line and Gotlandsbolaget announced the formation of a joint venture, Gotland Alandia Cruises AB, which is entrusted with the task of developing and providing cruises with Birka Gotland. Viking Line has a 50% shareholding in the company, which is thus recognized as a joint venture. Viking Line’s investment for the period August 9–December 31 generated income of EUR –1.5 M. 13. Trade and other receivables Trade receivables are recognized at amortized cost in accordance with IFRS 9. The carrying amount of trade receivables and other receivables is considered equal to fair value based on the short-term nature of the items. 14. Fixed assets held for sale Fixed assets held for sale on December 31, 2022, consisted of Rosella, for which Viking Line Abp had entered a sales agreement.

To the extent Alandia Holding Ab is in need of cash equivalents to make the payments, Viking Line Abp has undertaken to make a cash capital contribution to Alandia Holding Ab through a shareholder agreement. 16. Events after the balance sheet date The Board of Directors knows of no events after the balance sheet date that could affect the Year-End Report.

Item 14 – Election of Auditor (re-election) The Nomination Committee proposes, in accordance with the recommendation by the Audit Committee, re-election of the audit firm PricewaterhouseCoopers AB as the Company’s auditor for the period until the end of the 2025 Annual General Meeting. Item 15 – Resolution on instruction for the Nomination Committee The Nomination Committee proposes that the Annual General Meeting adopt a new instruction for the Nomination Committee in the Company to apply until a new instruction is adopted. The proposal entails that the number of representatives from the Company’s Board of Directors in the Nomination Committee is changed from two to only the Chairman of the Board. In connection with this change, editorial and linguistic simplifications of the instruction are proposed, which are not assessed to lead to any significant changes in the work of the Nomination Committee. The instruction for the Nomination Committee is proposed to have the following wording: 1. The Company shall have a Nomination Committee consisting of five members. The Nomination Committee shall consist of one member appointed by each of the four largest shareholders, in terms of the number of votes held, who wish to appoint a member, and the Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors. 2. Unless the members agree otherwise, the Chairman of the Nomination Committee shall be the member appointed by the largest shareholder in terms of the number of votes held. 3.

Unless there are special circumstances, no changes shall be made in the composition of the Nomination Committee if there are (i) only marginal changes in the number of votes held or (ii) if the change occurs later than three months before the Annual General Meeting. A shareholder that has become one of the four largest shareholders later than three months before the Annual General Meeting on account of a more significant change in the number of votes held, shall however be entitled to appoint a member who shall be invited to the Nomination Committee as a co-opted member. 7. A shareholder who has appointed a member of the Nomination Committee has the right to dismiss such member and appoint a new member of the Nomination Committee. 8. Changes in the composition of the Nomination Committee shall be announced as soon as they have occurred. 9. The Nomination Committee shall perform its assignment in accordance with the Swedish Code for Corporate Governance.10. If needed, the Company shall provide a secretary function to the Nomination Committee and reimburse such reasonable costs that the Nomination Committee deems necessary to be able to fulfil its assignment. Item 17 – Resolution on Remuneration Guidelines for senior executives The Board of Directors proposes that the following guidelines for remuneration shall be approved by the Annual General Meeting of the Company. The guidelines set forth herein shall apply to remuneration and other terms of employment for the President and CEO, Deputy CEO, and other members of group management (together “Group Management”) and, if applicable, remuneration to board members for work in addition to the board assignment. Group Management currently comprises ten executives. The principles shall be applied to employment and consultancy agreements entered into after the 2024 Annual General Meeting, and to changes made to existing agreements thereafter. The guidelines shall be in force until new guidelines are adopted by the General Meeting. These guidelines do not apply to any remuneration decided or approved by the General Meeting. Remuneration for the President and CEO and, if applicable, members of the Board of Directors is resolved by the Board of Directors of the Company, based on the recommendation of the remuneration committee (the “People Committee”). Remuneration for other members of Group Management is resolved upon by the People Committee and is reported to the Board of Directors. People Committee shall also monitor and evaluate programs for variable remuneration for Group Management, the application of these guidelines as well as the remuneration structures and compensation levels in Electrolux Group. The Board of Directors shall, based on the recommendation from the People Committee, prepare a proposal for new guidelines at least every fourth year and submit it to the Annual General Meeting. The President and CEO, Deputy CEO and other members of Group Management do not participate in the Board of Directors’ processing of and resolutions regarding remuneration-related matters in so far as they are affected by such matters. Note 27 of the Annual Report includes a detailed description of existing remuneration arrangements for Group Management, including fixed and variable compensation, long-term incentive programs and other benefits. The Company has a clear strategy to deliver profitable growth and create shareholder value.A prerequisite for the successful implementation of the Company’s business strategy and safeguarding of its long-term interests, including its sustainability, is that the Company is able to recruit and retain qualified personnel. To this end, it is necessary that the Company offers competitive remuneration in relation to the country or region of employment of each Group Management member. These guidelines enable the Company to offer Group Management a competitive total remuneration. More information on the Company’s strategy can be found on Electrolux Group’s website and in the most recent annual report, www.electroluxgroup.com/en/. The remuneration terms shall emphasize ‘pay for performance’ and vary with the performance of the individual and Electrolux Group. The total remuneration for Group Management shall be in line with market practice and may comprise the following components: fixed compensation, variable compensation, pension benefits and other benefits. Employment contracts governed by rules other than Swedish may be duly adjusted for compliance with mandatory rules or established local practice, taking into account, to the extent possible, the overall purpose of these guidelines. Fixed compensation The Annual Base Salary (“ABS”) shall be competitive relative to the relevant market and reflect the scope of the job responsibilities. Salary levels shall be reviewed periodically (usually annually) to ensure continued competitiveness and to recognize individual performance. Variable compensation Variable compensation consists of both short-term and long-term incentives. Long-term incentives consist of long-term share-related incentive programs (“LTI programs”). Such programs are resolved upon by the General Meeting and are therefore excluded from these guidelines. Each year, the Board of Directors evaluate whether an LTI program shall be proposed to the Annual General Meeting. LTI programs shall be distinctly linked to the business strategy and shall always be designed with the aim to further enhance the common interest of participating employees and the Company’s shareholders of a good long-term development for Electrolux Group. For more information regarding the LTI programs, including the criteria which the outcome depends on, please see the corporate governance section on Electrolux Group’s website, www.electroluxgroup.com. Following the ‘pay for performance’ principle, variable compensation shall represent a significant portion of the total compensation opportunity for Group Management. Variable compensation shall always be measured against pre-defined targets and have a maximum above which no payout shall be made. Variable compensation shall mainly relate to financial performance targets. Non-financial targets may also be used in order to strengthen the focus on delivering on the Company’s business strategy and long-term interests, including its sustainability. The targets shall be specific, clear, measurable and time bound and be determined by the Board of Directors. Short Term Incentive (“STI”) Members of Group Management shall participate in an STI plan under which they may receive variable compensation. The objectives in the STI plan shall mainly be financial and the measurement period shall be one year. The objectives shall mainly be set based on financial performance of Electrolux Group and, for the business area and product line heads, of the business area or the product line for which the Group Management member is responsible, such as profit, financial efficiency, and sales. Financial objectives will comprise at least 80 per cent of the weighting. Non-financial objectives may be related to sustainability, customer satisfaction, quality, or company culture. To which extent the criteria for awarding variable cash remuneration has been satisfied shall be determined by the People Committee when the measurement period has ended. For financial objectives, the evaluation shall be based on the annual financial performance in accordance with the most recent interim report for the fourth quarter made public by the Company. The maximum STI entitlements shall be dependent on job position and may amount to a maximum of 100 per cent of the ABS. Reflecting current market conditions, the STI entitlement for Group Management members employed in the U.S. may amount to a maximum of 150 per cent of ABS. Extraordinary arrangements Additional variable compensation may be approved in extraordinary circumstances under the conditions that such extraordinary arrangement is made for recruitment or retention purposes, is agreed on an individual basis, does not exceed 300 per cent of the ABS and is earned and/or paid out in instalments over a minimum period of 24 months. Such additional variable remuneration may also be paid on an individual level for extraordinary performance beyond the individual’s ordinary tasks and shall in these situations not exceed 30 per cent of the ABS and be paid in one installment. Right to reclaim variable remuneration Terms and conditions for variable remuneration should be designed to enable the Board of Directors, under exceptional financial circumstances, to limit or cancel payments of variable remuneration provided that such actions are deemed reasonable (malus). The Board shall also have the possibility, under applicable law or contractual provisions and subject to the restrictions that may apply under law or contract, to in whole or in part reclaim variable remuneration paid on incorrect grounds (claw-back). Pension and benefits Old age and survivor’s pension, disability benefits and healthcare benefits shall be designed to reflect home country practices and requirements. When possible, pension plans shall be based on defined contribution. In individual cases, depending on provisions in collective agreements, tax and/or social security legislation to which the individual is subject, other schemes and mechanisms for pension benefits may be approved. Defined pension contributions shall not exceed 40 per cent of the ABS unless the entitlement is higher under applicable collective agreements. Other benefits, such as company cars and housing, may be provided on an individual level or to the entire Group Management. Costs relating to such benefits may not amount to more than 20 per cent of the ABS. Members of Group Management who are expatriates, may receive additional remuneration and other benefits to the extent reasonable in light of the special circumstances associated with the expatriate arrangement. Such benefits shall be determined in line with Electrolux Group’s Directive on International Assignments and may for example include relocation costs, housing, tuition fees, home travel, tax support and tax equalization. Notice of termination and severance pay The notice period shall be twelve months if the employer takes the initiative to terminate the employment and six months if the Group Management member takes the initiative to terminate the employment. In individual cases, contractual severance pay may be approved in addition to the notice periods. Contractual severance pay may only be payable upon the employer’s termination of the employment arrangement or where a Group Management member gives notice as the result of an important change in the working situation, because of which he or she can no longer perform to standard. This may be the case in e.g., the event of a substantial change in ownership structure of Electrolux Group in combination with a change in reporting line and/or job scope. Contractual severance pay may for the individual include the continuation of the ABS for a period of up to twelve months following termination of the employment agreement; no other benefits shall be included. These payments shall be reduced with the equivalent value of any income that the individual earns during that period of up to twelve months from other sources of income, either from employment or from other business activities. In addition, compensation for any non-compete undertaking may be awarded. Such compensation shall be based on the ABS at the time of notice of termination of the employment, unless otherwise stipulated by mandatory collective agreement provisions, and be awarded over the period for which the non-compete clause applies, which should not exceed twelve months after termination of the employment. The compensation shall be reduced by an amount corresponding to any income that the person receives from other sources of income, either from employment or from other business activities. Salary and employment conditions for employees In preparation of the Board of Directors’ proposal for these remuneration guidelines, salary and employment conditions for employees of Electrolux Group have been taken into account, by including information on the employees’ total income, the components of the remuneration and increase and growth rate over time, in the People Committee’s and the Board of Directors’ basis of decision when evaluating whether the guidelines and the limitations set out herein are reasonable. Consultancy fees If a member of the Board of Directors (including through a wholly-owned subsidiary) should carry out services to Electrolux Group in addition to the board assignment, specific fees for this can be paid out (consultancy fees), provided that such services contribute to the implementation of the Company’s business strategy and the safeguarding of the Company’s long-term interests, including its sustainability. Such consultancy fee may for each member of the Board of Directors not to exceed the annual remuneration for the board assignment. The fee shall be in line with market practice. Deviations from the guidelines The Board of Directors may temporarily resolve to deviate from the guidelines, in whole or in part, if in a specific case there is special cause for the deviation and a deviation is necessary to serve the Company’s long-term interests, including its sustainability, or to ensure the Company’s financial viability. People Committee’s tasks include preparing the Board of Director’s resolutions in remuneration-related matters. This includes any resolutions to deviate from the guidelines. Material changes to the guidelines adopted by the Annual General Meeting 2020 The proposal to the 2024 Annual General Meeting for resolution on guidelines for remuneration corresponds, in all material aspects, with the guidelines adopted by the 2020 Annual General Meeting. Item 18 – Resolutions on a) transfer of own shares on account of company acquisitions; and b) transfer of own shares on account of the share program for 2022 The Company has previously, on the basis of authorizations by the Annual General Meeting, acquired own shares for the purpose of using these shares to finance potential company acquisitions, as a hedge for the Company’s share related incentive programs as well as to adapt the Company’s capital structure. The Board of Directors considers it to be of continued advantage for the Company to be able to use repurchased shares on account of potential company acquisitions and the Company’s share related incentive programs, and the Board of Directors therefore proposes the authorization to be renewed for the period until the following Annual General Meeting. In view of the above, the Board of Directors proposes as follows. a. Transfer of own shares on account of company acquisitions The Board of Directors proposes the Annual General Meeting to authorize the Board of Directors, for the period until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or several occasions, to resolve on transfers of the Company’s own shares of series B in connection with or as a consequence of company acquisitions as follows. 1. Own shares of series B held by the Company at the time of the Board of Directors’ decision on the transfer may be transferred. 2. Transfer of shares may take place outside Nasdaq Stockholm as set out in Chapter 19, Sections 35-37 of the Swedish Companies Act. 3. The shares may be transferred with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights. The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights shall be that transfer of own shares enables alternative forms of payment for company acquisitions which according to the Board of Directors is beneficial for the Company and contributes to increased shareholder value. 4. Transfer of shares shall be made at a minimum price per share corresponding to an amount in close connection with the price of the Company’s share on Nasdaq Stockholm at the time of the decision on the transfer. 5. Payment for transferred shares may be made in cash, by contributions in kind or by a set-off of Company debt. b. Transfer of own shares on account of the share program for 2022 The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves that the Company shall be entitled, for the period until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or several occasions, to transfer a maximum of 555,000 own shares of series B in the Company for the purpose of covering costs related to social security charges, that may arise as a result of the Company’s obligations under the previously adopted share program 2022. Such transfers shall take place on Nasdaq Stockholm at a price within the prevailing price interval for the Company’s shares at Nasdaq Stockholm from time to time. Majority requirement Valid resolutions in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposals a) and b) above require that shareholders holding no less than two thirds of the votes cast as well as the shares represented at the Annual General Meeting are in favor of the proposals. Item 19 – Resolutions on a) implementation of a performance based long-term share program for 2024; and b) transfer of own shares to the participants in the long-term share program for 2024. Background The Board of Directors in the Company has decided to propose a performance based long-term incentive program for 2024 (the “Share Program 2024”). The proposed Share Program 2024 is in all material aspects unchanged compared with the share program for 2023, with the exception that the number of participants is reduced to 800 to reflect the current total headcount of Electrolux Group. The Board of Directors is convinced that the proposed program will be beneficial to the Company’s shareholders as it will contribute to the possibilities to recruit and retain competent employees in Electrolux Group, is expected to increase the commitment and the motivation of the program participants and will strengthen the participants’ ties to the Company and its shareholders. Proposals of the Board of Directors In view of the above, the Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to a) implement Share Program 2024, and b) transfer own shares free of consideration to the participants in Share Program 2024, as follows. a. Implementation of Share Program 2024 The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to implement Share Program 2024 with the following principal terms and conditions: 1. The program is proposed to include up to 800 senior managers and key employees of Electrolux Group, who are divided into seven participant groups; the President and CEO (“Group 1”), other members of Group Management (“Group 2”), and five additional groups for other senior managers and key employees (“Group 3-7”). Invitation to participate in the program shall be provided by the Company no later than on May 17, 2024. 2. Participants are offered to be allocated shares of series B in the Company (“Performance Shares”), provided that the participant remains employed until January 1, 2027. Exemptions to this requirement may be prescribed in specific cases, including a participant’s death, disability, retirement or the divestiture through a sale, spin-off or otherwise of the participant’s employing company from Electrolux Group. 3. The Performance Shares shall be based on maximum performance values for each participant group. The maximum performance value for the participants in Group 1 will be 100 per cent of the participant’s annual base salary for 2024, for participants in Group 2, 90 per cent of the participant’s annual base salary for 2024, for participants in Group 3, 80 per cent of the participant’s annual base salary for 2024, for participants in Group 4, 60 per cent of the participant’s annual base salary for 2024, for participants in Group 5, 50 per cent of the participant’s annual base salary for 2024, for participants in Group 6, 40 per cent of the participant’s annual base salary for 2024, and for participants in Group 7, 20 per cent of the participant’s annual base salary for 2024. The total sum of the maximum values of the Performance Shares defined for all participants will not exceed SEK 568m excluding social costs. 4. Each maximum performance value shall thereafter be converted into a maximum number of Performance Shares [1], based on the average closing price paid for the Company’s share of series B on Nasdaq Stockholm during a period of ten trading days before the day the participants are invited to participate in the Share Program 2024, reduced by the present value of estimated dividend payments for the period until shares are allotted. 5. The calculation of the number of Performance Shares shall be connected to performance targets for Electrolux Group, for the performance period, established by the Board of Directors for (i) cumulative earnings per share [2] and (ii) CO\2\ reduction [3]. The performance targets adopted by the Board of Directors will stipulate a minimum level and a maximum level, with the relative weight of the performance targets (i) and (ii) being 80 per cent and 20 per cent, respectively. For the participants in Group 1 and 2 (Group Management), the granted Performance Shares based on (i) and (ii) will be multiplied by 0.75-1.25 depending on the outcome of a relative total shareholder return target [4]. The performance period is the financial years 2024-2026 with respect to each of the performance targets. 6. Performance outcome of the established performance targets will be determined by the Board of Directors after the expiry of the three-year performance period in 2027. If the maximum performance level is reached or exceeded, the allocation will amount to (and will not exceed) the maximum number of Performance Shares following from 3 and 4 above. If performance is below the maximum level but exceeds the minimum level, a proportionate allocation of Performance Shares will be made. No allocation will be made if performance amounts to or is below the minimum level. Information on the performance targets and the outcome will be provided no later than in connection with the allocation of Performance Shares in accordance with 7 below. 7. If all conditions in the Share Program 2024 are met, allocation of Performance Shares will take place in the first half of 2027. Allocation will be free of consideration except for tax liabilities. 8. Certain deviations in or adjustments of the terms and conditions for the Share Program 2024 may be made based on local rules and regulations as well as applicable market practice or market conditions or where appropriate due to group re-organizations, including cash settlement instead of delivery of shares under certain circumstances. 9. The Board of Directors, or a committee established by the Board for these purposes, shall be responsible for the preparation and management of the Share Program 2024, within the framework of the aforementioned terms and conditions.10. If material changes would occur within Electrolux Group or on the market that, according to the Board of Directors’ assessment, would lead to the conditions for allocation of Performance Shares no longer being reasonable, the Board of Directors shall also have the right to make other adjustments of the Share Program 2024, including e.g. a right to resolve on a reduced allotment of Performance Shares. Costs for the Share Program 2024 The total costs for the Share Program 2024, if the maximum number of Performance Shares are delivered, are estimated to a maximum of SEK 662m, which corresponds to approximately 2.72 per cent of the Group’s total employment cost for 2023. The costs will be recognized over the years 2024-2026, in accordance with IFRS 2. The costs have been calculated as the sum of salary costs, including social costs, and administration costs for the program. Administration costs are estimated to be less than SEK 1m. If no allotment of shares is made, only administration costs will arise. The costs have been calculated based on the value, at the start of the program, of the Performance Shares that may be allotted at maximum performance through transfer of own shares, with a reduction of the present value of estimated dividend payments during a three-year period. The estimate on maximum costs assumes maximum performance and that the number of participants that will leave Electrolux Group during the performance period is the same as the historical average since the introduction of share programs in 2004. In the calculation, a maximum share price of SEK 193 per share has been applied. Hedging measures for the Share Program 2024 In order to implement the Share Program 2024 in a cost-effective and flexible manner, the Board of Directors has considered various methods for transfer of shares to the participants. The Board of Directors has found that the most cost-effective alternative is transfer of own shares and proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves on transfer of own shares in accordance with b) below. Should the majority required under b) below not be reached, the Company intends to enter into an equity swap agreement with a third party to secure the Company’s financial exposure. Number of shares, effects on key figures, etc. The maximum number of Performance Shares that could be allotted to the participants under the Share Program 2024 shall be limited to 6,108,000, which corresponds to approximately 2.16 per cent of the total number of shares and 1.71 per cent of the votes in the Company [5]. The Share Program 2024 does not result in any dilutive effect on share capital or votes. If repurchased own shares are allocated under the Share Program 2024, the number of outstanding shares in the Company will increase with not more than 6,108,000 shares of series B, which corresponds to a maximum dilutive effect on earnings per share of approximately 2.21 per cent [6]. The dilutive effect on earnings per share is independent of the share price as Performance Shares are delivered free of consideration. The total maximum increase in the number of outstanding shares of all outstanding share programs in the Company is estimated to be not more than 12,714,000 shares of series B, delivered free of consideration, corresponding to a dilutive effect on earnings per share of approximately 4.50 per cent [7]. In this calculation, maximum allotment of shares has been assumed for the share programs 2024, 2023 and 2022. b. Resolution on transfers of own shares to the participants in Share Program 2024 In order to secure the delivery of Performance Shares in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Share Program 2024, the Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves that the Company shall transfer a maximum of 6,108,000 shares of series B in the Company on the following terms and conditions: 1. The right to receive shares shall be granted to participants within Electrolux Group covered by the terms and conditions pursuant to the Share Program 2024. Furthermore, subsidiaries within Electrolux Group shall have the right to acquire shares, free of consideration, and such subsidiaries shall be obligated to immediately transfer, free of consideration, shares to participants covered by the terms and conditions of the Share Program 2024. 2. The participant shall have the right to receive shares during the period when the participant is entitled to receive shares pursuant to the terms and conditions of Share Program 2024. 3. Participants covered by the terms and conditions of Share Program 2024 shall receive shares of series B in the Company free of consideration. 4. The number of shares of series B in the Company that may be transferred under Share Program 2024 will be subject to recalculation as a result of intervening bonus issues, splits, rights issues and/or other similar corporate events. Majority requirements The resolution of the Annual General Meeting to implement the Share Program 2024 according to a) above requires that more than half of the votes cast at the Annual General Meeting are in favor of the proposal. The Annual General Meeting’s resolution on transfer of own shares according to b) above requires that shareholders representing at least nine-tenths of the votes cast as well as the shares represented at the Annual General Meeting are in favor of the proposal. Preparation of the proposal for the Share Program 2024 The proposal for the Share Program 2024 has been prepared by the People Committee and the Board of Directors. Other share related incentive programs For a description of the Company’s outstanding share related incentive programs, reference is made to the Annual Report for 2023, note 27, and the corporate governance section on Electrolux Group’s website, www.electroluxgroup.com/en/. In addition to the programs described, no other share related incentive programs have been implemented. Shares and votes As of the day of announcement of this notice, there are in total 283,077,393 shares in AB Electrolux of which 8,191,804 are series A shares, each carrying one vote, and 274,885,589 are series B shares, each carrying one-tenth of a vote, corresponding to in total 35,680,362.9 votes. As of the same date the Company holds 13,049,115 own shares of series B, corresponding to 1,304,911.5 votes that may not be represented at the Annual General Meeting. Shareholders’ right to receive information The Board of Directors and the President and CEO shall at the Annual General Meeting, if any shareholder so requests and the Board of Directors considers that it can be done without material harm to the Company, provide information regarding circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda and circumstances that may affect the assessment of the Company’s or its subsidiaries’ financial situation and the Company’s relation to other group companies.

Metso’s Financial Statements Review January-December 31, 2023

Metso revised its segment reporting as of September 30, 2023, by transitioning from three segments to two: Aggregates and Minerals. The Smelting business, previously reported under the Metals segment, was moved to the Minerals segment, and the Metals & Chemical Processing and Ferrous & Heat Transfer businesses from the Metals segment were transferred to discontinued operations. All income statement, order intake and order backlog figures presented in this report pertain to continuing operations, and the financial information for the comparison periods has been restated accordingly. Figures in brackets refer to the corresponding period in 2022, unless otherwise stated. Fourth quarter 2023 in brief · Customers' decision-making slower year-on-year; sequentially stable market activity · Orders received declined 14% to EUR 1,232 million (EUR 1,437 million), services orders increased 4% · Sales EUR 1,342 million (EUR 1,356 million), services sales increased 8% · Adjusted EBITA increased 7% to EUR 225 million, or 16.8% of sales (EUR 210 million, or 15.5%) · Operating profit increased to EUR 200 million, or 14.9% of sales (EUR 183 million, or 13.5%) · Cash flow from operations was EUR 216 million (EUR 212 million) 2023 in brief · Orders received declined 7% to EUR 5,252 million (EUR 5,623 million) · Sales grew 8% to EUR 5,390 million (EUR 4,970 million) · Adjusted EBITA increased 24% to EUR 887 million, or 16.5% of sales (EUR 715 million, or 14.4%) · Operating profit increased to EUR 805 million, or 14.9% of sales (EUR 490 million, or 9.9%) · Earnings per share were EUR 0.66 (EUR 0.36) and for continuing operations EUR 0.65 (EUR 0.39) · Cash flow from operations was EUR 550 million (EUR 322 million) · The Board of Directors will propose a dividend of EUR 0.36 for 2023 (EUR 0.30), to be paid in two equal installments President and CEO Pekka Vauramo: Our performance remained strong in the fourth quarter, despite sales declining slightly year-on-year within a mixed market environment. We improved our adjusted EBITA by 7% to EUR 225 million and adjusted EBITA margin to 16.8%, compared to 15.5% in the last quarter of 2022. This demonstrates our unwavering dedication to improving our profitability and to reaching our updated profitability goal of over 17% adjusted EBITA margin. Demand in the mining market remained stable during the latter part of the year. Steady customer production levels contributed to the favorable increase in services orders within the Minerals segment. Whilst Minerals equipment orders for the quarter declined, as a result of a tough year-on-year comparison, we continue to see a healthy order proposal pipeline. As anticipated, the aggregates market continued to be weaker compared to the previous year. This was evident in the lower order intake in the fourth quarter, although there was a sequential increase due to seasonal demand. Quarterly sales increased in Minerals, but the decline in Aggregates sales, in addition to a negative currency impact, resulted in the Group's sales being 1% lower year-on-year. The profitability of Minerals improved, and the profitability of Aggregates was at the comparison period's level, despite the decline in sales. Overall, our profitability development reflects improved gross margins through cost management, as well as other actions implemented to strengthen our resilience to market fluctuations. For the full year, orders received decreased slightly, mainly due to the weaker Aggregates market. Sales increased by 8%, and adjusted EBITA increased by 24% to EUR 887 million, or 16.5% of revenue. Our cash flow from operations also improved towards the end of the year, reaching EUR 550 million compared to EUR 322 million in 2022. Overall, we can be very satisfied with our performance, and I would like to express my gratitude to the whole Metso personnel for their strong contribution during 2023. We made significant strides in our strategic focus areas, with sales of our Planet Positive products growing by 18% year-on-year to EUR 1,447 million, accounting for 27% of our total sales. The demand for Planet Positive products remains robust, and new Planet Positive orders include battery minerals processing plants, such as a lithium hydroxide refinery, and a full-scope sustainable comminution flow sheet concept. During the year, we also introduced several new Planet Positive products, to e.g., battery minerals processes, recycling, and process optimization and availability. Throughout 2023, we continued to refine our business portfolio: we announced a plan to divest two businesses that were previously part of our Metals segment. These businesses have been reported as discontinued businesses since the third quarter, and the divestment process is ongoing. Additionally, we pursued inorganic growth opportunities and made three small acquisitions last year. In 2024, we will continue to seek further opportunities to strengthen our market position and expand our sustainable and digital offerings. We also remain committed to annual productivity improvements and cost control. We expect that the ongoing demand for infrastructure and minerals, driven by the global energy transformation, will sustain our end markets. However, customer decision-making may be influenced by economic and geopolitical developments. We are confident that our strong position will enable us to continue providing excellent service to our customers and creating value for all our stakeholders in 2024. Market outlook According to the company's disclosure policy, Metso’s market outlook describes the expected sequential development of market activity during the following six-month period using three categories: improve, remain at the current level, or decline. Metso expects that the market activity in Minerals will remain at the current level, while the activity in Aggregates is expected to improve. In its previously published outlook, Metso expected the overall market activity to remain at the current level in both Minerals and Aggregates.

Cereno Scientific releases Insights Videos Season 3 Episode 1–4 with Sten R. Sörensen, CEO, Cereno Scientific

The Insights Series is conducted as a series of interviews and conversations with internationally renowned scientific experts, who share their knowledge and insights to provide a greater understanding of the company's intensified focus on further developing the product portfolio. Season 3 of the Video Series was recorded in conjunction with Cereno’s participation at the prestigious top global PVRI 2024 Annual Congress organized by the Pulmonary Vascular Research Institute. The PVRI 2024 Annual Congress is a top global pulmonary vascular congress, focusing on the future of care for patients with pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary vascular disease, gathering key opinion leaders from all over the world. Insight Series Season 3 consists of interviews with: · Sten R. Sörensen, CEO, Cereno Scientific · Dr. Björn Dahlöf, CSO, Cereno Scientific · Dr. Raymond Benza, System Director of Pulmonary Hypertension at Mount Sinai Icahn School of Medicine, New York City, Principal Investigator of the Phase II study of CS1, and member of Cereno’s Scientific Advisory Board First out are four videos featuring Sten R. Sörensen, CEO, Cereno Scientific Watch here:Insights Series S3 E1 - Remarkable findings in Cereno Scientific’s Phase II study on PAH  Watch here: Insights Series S3 E2 – The importance of the “Compassionate use”-approval by the FDA  Watch here: Insights Series S3 E3 – The potential in HDAC inhibition with CS01 and CS014  Watch here: Insights Series S3 E4 – Implications for PAH patients looking forward  Drug candidate CS1 is currently being evaluated in a Phase II study as a treatment for the rare disease pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). A collaboration agreement with global healthcare company Abbott allows Cereno to use their cutting-edge technology CardioMEMS HF System in the study. An investigator-initiated patient case study performed on the first patient having completed the study at the clinic where one of our investigators was based showed remarkable efficacy data. In 12 weeks of treatment with CS1, the patient showed a 30% pulmonary pressure reduction and a 20% increase in cardiac output. The patient’s overall functional status was changed from NYHA/WHO functional class II to I at the end of the treatment period, meaning that she had next to normal functional physical capacity. A data quality control review (DQCR) initiative was performed confirming the utility of the CardioMEMS HF System (Abbott Inc.) and showed that CS1 has a clinically meaningful reduction of pulmonary pressure, a key marker of the PAH disease burden. The initial findings are, however, not a guarantee of the final study result. Since January 2024, CS1 has been available under FDA’s Expanded Access Program (“compassionate use”) for continued CS1 treatment in patients who have completed the Phase II study. The study is designed to randomize 30 PAH patients and the top-line result of the Phase II study is estimated to be reported in Q2 2024. The video series is available on Cereno’s website , LinkedIn  and YouTube .

Sörensen, CEO Email: sten.sorensen@cerenoscientific.com Phone: +46 73-374 03 74 About Cereno Scientific AB Cereno Scientific develops innovative treatments for common and rare cardiovascular disease. The lead drug candidate, CS1, is a HDAC (histone deacetylase) inhibitor that acts as an epigenetic modulator with pressure-reducing, reverse-remodeling, anti-inflammatory, anti-fibrotic and anti-thrombotic properties. A Phase II study is ongoing to evaluate CS1’s safety, tolerability, and efficacy in patients with the rare disease pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). A collaboration agreement with global healthcare company Abbott allows Cereno to use their cutting-edge technology CardioMEMS HF System in the study. Two initiatives performed during the ongoing Phase II study have shown positive findings suggesting the potential clinical benefit of CS1 in PAH patients. These initial findings are, however, not a guarantee of the final study results that are expected in Q2 2024. Since January 2024, CS1 has been available under FDA’s Expanded Access Program (“compassionate use”) for continued CS1 treatment in patients who have completed the Phase II study. Cereno also has two promising preclinical drug candidates in development through research collaborations with the University of Michigan. Investigational drug CS014 is a HDAC inhibitor in development as a treatment for arterial and venous thrombosis prevention. The innovative drug candidate represents a groundbreaking approach to antithrombotic treatment potentially without the associated increased risk of bleeding in humans. CS014 is a new chemical entity with a multi-fold mechanism of action as an epigenetic modulator – regulating platelet activity, fibrinolysis, and clot stability for the prevention of thrombosis without increased risk of bleeding as documented in preclinical studies. Drug candidate CS585 is a prostacyclin receptor agonist that has been documented in several preclinical studies to target the IP receptor for prevention of thrombosis without increased risk of bleeding, which also has been recognized in the medical community. CS585 was in-licensed from the University of Michigan in 2023. The company is headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, and has a US subsidiary Cereno Scientific Inc. based in Kendall Square in Boston, Massachusetts, US. Cereno is listed on the Nasdaq First North (CRNO B).More information on www.cerenoscientific.com.

Resolution on amending the Company’s Articles of Association The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that Article 10 of the Company’s Articles of Association currently in force concerning general meetings of shareholders be supplemented with an addition regarding remote meetings owing to a change in the Companies Act. According to the proposed addition, a general meeting of shareholders could, subject to a decision by the Board of Directors, be organised without a physical venue so that the shareholders could exercise their decision-making powers during the meeting in full and in real time by means of a telecommunications link and a technical instrument (remote meeting). The shareholders could thus exercise their right to ask questions and right to vote as if in a physical meeting. The amendment would enable the Company to better prepare for changing circumstances in the Company’s operating environment and the society at large, and offer its shareholders a possibility to exercise their decision-making powers in full in the items presented to the general meeting under all circumstances. The proposed amendment would further enable the organising of a general meeting and the full exercise of shareholder rights in a situation where participating in the general meeting at the meeting venue would not be possible for, e.g., safety reasons. Moreover, the Board of Directors proposes that Article 10 be amended so that in addition to the items listed in Article 10, the annual general meeting of shareholders shall also, if necessary, resolve on the remuneration policy (new item 6 of the amended Article 10) as well as resolve on the approval of the remuneration report (new item 7 of the amended Article 10). In addition, the running numbers of the current items 6–11 of Article 10 would be accordingly adjusted to numbers 8–13 in the proposed amended Article 10. Article 10 would remain otherwise unchanged. Article 10 of the Articles of Association would thus read as follows (changes underlined): “Article 10 The General Meeting of shareholders shall be held in Espoo or Helsinki, as decided by the Board of Directors. A General Meeting of shareholders can, subject to a decision by the Board of Directors, be organised without a physical venue so that the shareholders can exercise their decision-making powers during the meeting in full and in real time by means of a telecommunications link and a technical instrument (remote meeting). The Annual General Meeting is to be held each year by the end of May on a day decided by the Board of Directors and matters to be dealt with at the meeting shall be: 1) the financial statements, the report by the Board of Directors and the consolidated financial statements, 2) the Auditors’ Report, resolutions on: 3) adoption of the financial statement and the consolidated financial statement, 4) the use of profits shown in the balance sheet, 5) release from liability for the members of the Board of Directors and the President, 6) if necessary, the remuneration policy, 7) approval of the remuneration report, 8) the number of members of the Board of Directors 9) the remuneration to be paid to the members of the Board of Directors and the auditor, election of: 10) the members of the Board of Directors, whereby according to the resolution passed by the General Meeting, the person or persons receiving the most votes shall be elected, 11) Chairman of the Board from amongst the members of the Board of Directors, 12) the auditor, as well as consideration of: 13) other matters stated in the notice of meeting.” 18. Resolution on amending the Rules of Procedure of the Company’s Shareholders’ Nomination Board The Nomination Board proposes to the Annual General Meeting that the Rules of Procedure of the Company’s Nomination Board be amended.

Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of Class B shares against payment The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorise the Board of Directors to decide on a share issue against payment in one or more issues. The authorisation comprises the right to issue new Class B shares or assign Class B treasury shares held by the Company. Maximum number of shares to be issued or assigned It is proposed that the authorisation cover a combined maximum of 18,000,000 of the Company’s own Class B shares, representing approximately 9.92 per cent of all shares in the Company.

Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of Class B shares without payment to the Company and on a directed share issue of Class B shares in order to execute the share-based incentive plan for the Oriola Group’s executives and the share savings plan for the Oriola Group’s key personnel In addition to the authorisations presented above, the Board of Directors proposes that it be granted the following authorisations in order to execute the share-based incentive plan for the Oriola Group’s executives and the share savings plan for the Oriola Group’s key personnel: (i) Share issue without payment to the Company The Board of Directors is authorised to decide on a share issue without payment to the Company in one or more issues. The maximum number of the Company’s new Class B shares to be issued under this authorisation is 250,000, representing approximately 0.14 per cent of all shares in the Company. Other terms and purpose of the authorisation The Board of Directors decides upon all other matters related to the issuing of Class B shares. The purpose of the authorisation is to enable the creation of own shares to be used in the share-based incentive plan for the Oriola Group’s executives and the share savings plan for the Oriola Group’s key personnel as described below. (ii) Directed share issue In deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive right, the Board of Directors is authorised to issue the Company’s Class B shares in one or more issues. The authorisation granted to the Board of Directors includes the right to derogate from the shareholders’ pre-emptive subscription right, provided that there is, in respect of the Company, a weighty financial reason for the derogation. The Class B shares to be issued can be either new shares or own Class B treasury shares. The total number of shares to be issued under the authorisation is 250,000 Class B shares. The share issue may be without payment. Purpose of the authorisation The Board of Directors may exercise the authorisation in the share-based incentive plan for the Oriola Group’s executives and in the share savings plan for the Oriola Group’s key personnel. The shares in question represent approximately 0.14 per cent of all shares in the Company. Other terms and validity The Board of Directors decides upon all other matters related to the share issues, the executives’ incentive plan, and the key personnel’s share savings plan. Deciding upon a directed share issue without payment requires that there is a particularly weighty financial reason for the deviation in respect of the Company and that the interest of all of its shareholders is taken into account. The proposed authorisation revokes all other share issue authorisations granted to the Board of Directors with the exception of those decided earlier during this Annual General Meeting. The authorisations in accordance with this section shall be valid for no longer than eighteen (18) months from the resolution of the Annual General Meeting. 22. Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of the Company’s own Class B shares The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorise the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of the Company’s own Class B shares on the following terms and conditions: Maximum number of shares repurchased According to the authorisation, the Board of Directors is entitled to decide on the repurchase of no more than 18,000,000 of the Company’s own Class B shares, which represent approximately 9.92 per cent of all shares in the Company. The authorisation may only be used in such a way that in total no more than one tenth (1/10) of all shares in the Company may at each time be in the possession of the Company and its subsidiaries. Consideration to be paid for the shares and targeted acquisition Shares may also be repurchased in accordance with the resolution of the Board of Directors in a proportion other than that in which the shares are owned by the shareholders, using funds belonging to the Company’s unrestricted equity and at a price formed in trading on regulated market on the date of the repurchase or otherwise at a price formed on the market. The Board of Directors decides how the shares will be repurchased. Among other means, derivatives may be used in the acquisition of the shares. The repurchase of the shares reduces the Company’s distributable unrestricted equity. The shares may be repurchased to develop the Company’s capital structure, to execute corporate transactions or other business arrangements, to finance investments, to be used as a part of the Company’s incentive schemes or to be otherwise relinquished, held by the Company, or cancelled. Other terms and validity The Board of Directors decides on all other matters related to the repurchase of Class B shares. The authorisation to repurchase the Company’s own shares shall remain in force for a period of not more than eighteen (18) months from the resolution of the Annual General Meeting. This authorisation revokes the authorisation granted to the Board of Directors by the Annual General Meeting on 21 March 2023 in respect of the repurchase of the Company’s own Class B shares. 23.

In accordance with Article 135 of the Companies Act (Cap. 386 of the Laws of Malta) the adoption of the resolution required approval by not less than 75 percent of the nominal value of the shares/SDRs represented and entitled to vote at the EGM and at least 51 percent of the nominal value of the total shares/SDRs in issue and entitled to vote at the meeting. As these requirements were not met, the Board of Directors is to convene a second extraordinary general meeting (the “Second EGM”) within 30 days to take a fresh vote on the proposal to amend the Company’s current Memorandum and Articles of Association in accordance with the rules set out in Article 135(1)(b) of the Companies Act (Cap. 386 of the Laws of Malta). The Board of Directors’ proposal to amend the Company’s current Memorandum and Articles of Association will be adopted at the Second EGM if 75 percent or more of the shares/SDRs represented and entitled to vote at the Second EGM vote in favor of the proposal. Should more than 50 percent of the nominal value of the total issued shares/SDRs having the right to vote at the Second EGM be represented at the meeting, a simple majority in nominal value of such shares/SDRs so represented shall suffice for the adoption of the resolution.

M.O.B.A. Network AB (publ) updates on the fourth quarter and decides on reversal of additional purchase consideration and non-cash affecting write-downs

Update regarding the fourth quarter of 2023 Preliminary results for the fourth quarter (not audited by the company's auditors) 2023-10-01 2022-10-01 2023-01-01 2022-01-01Amount in TSEK 2023-12-31 2022-12-31 2023-12-31 2022-12-31Revenue 82 147 80 306 273 154 289 815Adjusted EBITDA 17 673 7 600 38 665 32 130EBITDA 74 184 7 600 89 801 32 130Adjusted EBIT 14 366 6 342 22 982 27 314EBIT 34 037 6 342 37 277 27 314 * Adjusted EBITDA consists of operating profit before depreciation and amortization, adjusted for costs and revenues of a one-time nature. * Adjusted EBIT consists of the operating result adjusted for write-downs, costs, and revenues of a one-time nature.              Non-cash affecting write-downs M.O.B.A Network (publ) has today decided on non-cash affecting write-downs of SEK 37 million in the fourth quarter in accordance with IFRS accounting standards. The write-downs are non-cash affecting and of a one-time nature. As a result of the historically weak advertising market shown in 2023 combined with an increased discount rate (WACC), the booked value has been challenged in the short term for Critical Click, an asset acquired in 2018. Therefore, a non-cash affecting write-down has been made with 27 MSEK. M.O.B.A. Network continues to have confidence in the long-term growth prospects for the assets in Critical Click, where the start of 2024 has shown organic growth. The write-down corresponds to 27% of the total booked amount for goodwill and other intangible rights, related to the acquisition of Critical Click. The company has also decided to migrate LoLWiz to the Porofessor app because Porofessor is the leading app in the market and the product M.O.B.A. will continue to invest in, which means that the asset needs to be written off from the balance sheet, amounting to 10 MSEK. No additional purchase consideration for the acquisition of Wargraphs S.A.S. for year 1 The company has determined that no additional purchase consideration will be paid out for year 1 regarding the acquisition of Wargraphs S.A.S., which in accordance with IFRS will be recorded as other income and positively affects the result with 57 MSEK.

The trinity of SENS: Paving the way for sustainable futures

At SENS, we are actively engaged in the global transition towards sustainable energy. Our focus is on developing and implementing key projects such as solar parks, battery storage, and energy storage in mines. These projects are essential for integrating renewable energy more efficiently into our daily lives and for the broader energy market. The discussion around energy often tends to revolve around the risk of electricity shortages. However, at SENS, we see a great opportunity in improving energy storage solutions. To fully utilize renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power, which can be unpredictable, large-scale and long-term storage is crucial. By investing in and further developing energy storage technologies, we aim to make renewable energy more reliable and accessible. Our commitment to improving energy storage is a central part of our comprehensive strategy to support the transition to a sustainable energy future. With our work, we hope to contribute to a world where green energy is always available, which in turn contributes to a better planet for us all. Strategic recruitments In January, SENS took important steps towards strategic growth by expanding our management team, marking a renewed commitment to developing our business. We welcomed Anders Björkenbo as our new Chief Commercial Officer and Chief Operating Officer (CCO/COO). With his broad experience from sectors such as the automotive industry, tech industry, and energy sector, as well as several years of working with startups, Anders is perfectly positioned to make a significant contribution to our sales strategy and business development. His role is critical for expanding our project portfolio and strengthening our position in the market for sustainable energy storage. At the same time, Nikolas Georgii became part of our team as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). His extensive background in IT and Greentech, with previous positions at prominent companies like Novell, Cisco, and Clavister, as well as companies such as myFC and Clearwell Europe, makes him ideal for communicating SENS's vision and values. Nikolas has an important mission to effectively convey the benefits of our solutions to investors and key players within the energy sector. "Having the opportunity to work together with the team at SENS is incredibly satisfying, especially as we address the global challenges in energy supply, with a particular focus on the need for flexible energy solutions." - Nikolas Georgii Together, Anders and Nikolas play a central role in driving SENS towards our ambitious goals. Their expertise is crucial for improving our position in the market and contributing to our work for a sustainable energy future. Projects that set new standards Our groundbreaking projects pave the way for new standards in sustainable energy. Our commitment to driving forward sustainable energy solutions is clearly illustrated through our recent projects and strategic partnerships. In January, we initiated a collaboration with Karlskoga municipality to explore the possibility of erecting a solar power plant with battery storage. SENS sees great benefits in collaborating with municipalities to develop solutions for storing renewable energy and intends to continue initiating similar collaborations with Swedish municipalities. Furthermore, we have entered into a leasing agreement for a 40 MW battery storage facility outside Eskilstuna, marking our second major project in Sweden for 2024. The project, which may be complemented by a solar park, demonstrates our expanding presence within the Swedish market. On the international stage, we have broadened our scope of operations by entering into a strategic partnership with Nyembesi in Zimbabwe. The goal of this partnership is to explore and develop sustainable energy storage methods. By combining our efforts with Nyembesi's local expertise on the African continent, we strengthen our commitment to a global transition to sustainable energy. Going forward In 2023, SENS made significant progress in our strategy and contributed positively to sustainable development. The year highlighted our firm belief in a sustainable future. As we move into 2024, our focus on promoting the green transition intensifies. The key to significant change lies in advancements in energy storage, a challenge we at SENS are ready to tackle with full force. We are prepared to continue our important work and strive for a greener tomorrow.

Accordingly, the Tender Offer will be subject to disclosure and other procedural requirements, including with respect to withdrawal rights, the Tender Offer timetable, settlement procedures and timing of payments that are different from those applicable under U.S. domestic tender offer law and practice. The financial information included in this stock exchange release or the Tender Offer Document has not been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, or derived therefrom, and may therefore differ from, and not be comparable with, financial information of U.S. companies.

Lake Sevan is crucial for Armenia due to its roles in irrigation, freshwater supply, biodiversity, tourism, culture, hydropower, research and the economy. The lake’s condition has a direct bearing on the region’s environmental status and on Armenia’s economic potential. Over the years, climate change has caused the lake to suffer from massive algal blooms, which are affecting water quality. Sweco is part of The EU4Sevan programme that aims to rehabilitate Lake Sevan’s ecosystem by enhancing governance, strengthening policy frameworks and building capacity for sustainable development planning. Experts from Sweco Czech Republic are assessing the prospective state of the lake, if it was to be artificially raised by about 6.5 metres, back to the water levels of the year 1903.  In doing so, Sweco is using detailed mathematical modelling and long-term observed data for future climate change scenarios, which is crucial for decision-making. Additionally, Sweco provides consultancy support for impact assessment and roadmap development.

Stena Line’s CEO Niclas Mårtensson appointed to lead the Supply Chain & Transport Industry Community at the World Economic Forum

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is an international organisation that brings together leaders from business, government, civil society, and academia to shape global, regional and industry agendas. At this year’s annual meeting in Davos, it was announced that Niclas Mårtensson will take on the role of Governor Chair of one of the forum’s 22 industry communities: the Supply Chain & Transport Industry.

The World Economic Forum brings together such a vast diversity of political leaders and influential people from business and the civil society who are all engaged in collaborating to create actual change for a better world”, Niclas Mårtensson says. WEF is most famous for the annual meeting in Davos, but the industry communities work together throughout the year, proposing, endorsing, and providing strategic input to priorities for the industry they represent. A significant role for Niclas Mårtensson will be to influence the policies and regulations around existing opportunities, with the goal of facilitating a fossil-free supply chain and transport industry. “While the world currently sets high goals for sustainability, the necessary infrastructure to achieve these goals often falls short, for example when it comes to electrification. In my role as Governor Chair, I have a responsibility to make my voice heard and influence the policies that are crucial for our industry’s inevitable transformation”, states Niclas Mårtensson.

ChromoGenics' Dynamic Glass in Boverket's New Headquarters

In a groundbreaking project with stringent environmental performance requirements, Skanska is building the new headquarters for the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning, “Boverket” in Karlskrona. The building is a pilot project and sets an entirely new standard for future sustainable office properties, with the choice of dynamic glass being ChromoGenics' latest innovation, ConverLight. ChromoGenics has now initiated production of the glass. Swedish Building Regulations are issued by Boverket. Along the waterfront in Karlskrona, construction has begun on Boverket's new headquarters, designed by Sandell Sandberg architects. The project is commissioned by the property company Vacse, with Skanska leading the construction work. Right from the procurement stage, the goal was to certify the property according to several strict environmental standards, including NollC02, Well Platinum, BREEAM SE EXCELLENT, and Energy Class A. During an early climate analysis, it was observed that the largest carbon dioxide emissions came from piling, the structure, and the extensive façade glass, accounting for 85 percent of emissions. To achieve the goals, innovative solutions were required – where one of the keys to success was found locally. Initially, the plan was to use a double shell façade, but due to significant carbon dioxide emissions, a rethink was necessary. Instead, the double façade with its integrated blinds was replaced with standard single façade with dynamic glass from ChromoGenics, reducing the amount of glass and steel used and resulting in a thinner floor slab. The product, ConverLight, is an advanced technology where an electrochromic foil is laminated into the glass to regulate the intensity of sunlight and heat penetration into buildings. When the sun shines, the control system darkens the glass, significantly reducing the need for air conditioning. Similarly, solar heat can be allowed in during the winter to reduce energy consumption and heating costs. This solution also provides a natural daylight effect and unobstructed views – offering several positive health benefits for the over 250 people who will work in the building. · Dynamic glass is a key component in creating future energy-efficient and eco-friendly properties. Just by replacing the glass, a property's energy consumption can be reduced by up to 40%. Moreover, offering Boverket employees a fantastic view of the water and the surroundings is another added value of our solution. It will be a fantastic building, which will include the largest curved electrochromic glass in the world. We are now looking forward to being an active partner in this innovative sustainability project alongside Skanska, Boverket, and Vacse, says Fredrik Fränding, CEO of ChromoGenics. The property is expected to be completed in 2025 and the dynamic glass is now in production at ChromoGenics' facility in Uppsala. This project sets a new standard for future sustainable office properties and demonstrates how Swedish innovations like ConverLight can play a crucial role in reducing the environmental impact of the construction sector. This order has previously been communicated by the company in a press release dated 2023-10-15, in which the name of the project and companies involved were not disclosed.

Upmarket Italian delicatessen brand, Prezzemolo & Vitale, rolls out Pricer’s in-store automation solution to its London stores

Founded in Palermo, Sicily, P&V is now a third-generation family-owned premium deli, which specialises in high-quality, artisan Italian produce sold through its modern estate of grocery stores. With 10 stores in Palermo, P&V sought to expand into the UK market, showcasing and celebrating the culture of Italy and Sicily through its food and wine produce. It launched its first UK store on London’s Kings Road, Chelsea, in 2017, and has since opened three further delicatessens in chic London boroughs, including Notting Hill and Wimbledon, as well as London’s food mecca, Borough Market. Each week, it imports the finest produce from Italy, from seasonal fruit and vegetables, to charcuterie, cheeses, pasta and wine, as well as offering dining-in experiences, which feature Italian ingredients sold in the deli, in its in-store cafés. It plans to open a further two stores in Kensington and Clapham Junction later this year. P&V was already using ESLs within its Palermo store network and wanted to bring digital shelf-edge experiences to its upmarket London delis. This would not only keep the look and feel of its stores sleek and modern, but also help P&V deliver real-time automated pricing updates across its 2,500 SKUs in-store and improved replenishment and restocking efficiencies, freeing up its staff to focus on customer service delivery. Having conducted a full assessment of the ESL market, P&V chose to partner with Pricer due to its reputation as a market leader as well as the high quality nature of its solution, which matched both the premium aesthetics of the P&V stores, while also delivering the digital capabilities P&V wanted to build into its store operations. Working closely with P&V’s Italian IT team, Pricer rolled out the latest 4 colour ESLs into its Wimbledon store in September 2023, quickly followed in October by its Borough Market and Chelsea delis and in early December for its Notting Hill establishment. With Pricer Plaza Store Manager cloud-based solution and ESLs implemented in all of P&V’s London stores, the upmarket deli brand is now able to update pricing and promotions in real-time, helping it ensure accurate pricing at the shelf edge. It also has delivered labour hours savings, ensuring store associates can focus time on serving customers or tasks that improve customer experiences in-store. Additionally, Pricer’s solution has also helped improve store operational efficiencies for replenishment, leveraging Pricer’s Flash capabilities, which uses a flashing light on the labels to alert store associates to items that require restocking, helping to reduce shelf gaps. Salvatore Prezzemollo, Chief Operating Officer at P&V, commented: “As the saying goes, ‘retail is detail’ and Pricer is helping us to ensure our pricing and store operations can run effectively with the attention to detail and customer service we want to be able to offer to our customers. The Pricer team worked seamlessly with our IT staff in Italy, quickly and efficiently rolling out the ESLs in-store, whilst also affording us the flexibility to add some custom integrations so the solution fits our business needs perfectly.” Peter Ward, UK & Ireland Country Manager at Pricer, commented: “The P&V brand celebrates the very best of Italian and Sicilian culture through the highest quality produce, delivered in its sleek and modern delis.

BAKKAFROST: Strong biology after a challenging year

The performance in Q4 2023 per region was very uneven: Faroe Islands                 · Revenues of DKK 1,478 million (1,641 million) · Operational EBIT of DKK 460 million (525 million) Scotland                         · Revenues of DKK 84 million (298 million) · Operational EBIT of DKK -104 million (-149 million) Commenting on the result, CEO Regin Jacobsen said: “Bakkafrost delivered strong results in the fourth quarter 2023 with improved operating margin. Markets have been strong, with high demand in all regions. Bakkafrost salmon was well appreciated with good premium in the market, especially strong development in North America, which increased to 25% of the salmon from Bakkafrost Faroe Islands. I am proud of the progresses from the high focus on fish health and welfare in the Bakkafrost’s operation in the Faroe Islands, which have resulted in a very robust and strong farming regime. The average monthly survivability for the full year was 99,39% with average harvest weight of 4.6 kg HOG and 90% superior grade. In Scotland our journey to robust operation is still in progress – last year the monthly survivability was 98,29% with average harvest weight of 4.2 kg HOG and 89% superior grade. After a troublesome third quarter in Scotland with biological challenges – the fourth quarter gave opportunities with good biological development to grow the fish, resulting therefore in reduced harvest volumes, concentrating on growing into H1 2024 to larger sizes.” During Q4 2023, the FOF segment sourced 53,552 tonnes (46,051 tonnes) of raw material. The Operational EBITDA margin was 25% (14%), and fish feed sales amounted to 39,354 tonnes (32,600 tonnes). For the full year 2023, the FOF segment’s operational EBITDA margin was 23% (18%). During the full year 2023, Havsbrún sourced 467,037 tonnes (297,814 tonnes) of raw material. In Q4 2023, the Freshwater segments in the Faroe Islands and Scotland released a total of 6.8 million (8.5 million) smolts combined: · Freshwater FO: 5.1 million (5.0 million), · Freshwater SCT: 1.7 million (3.5 million). In 2023, the freshwater segments have released a total of 23.2 (25.4) million smolts: · Freshwater FO:  14.2 million (14.4 million), · Freshwater SCT: 9.0 million (11.0 million). In Q4 2023, the Freshwater FO segment made an operational EBIT per kg released smolt of 26.75 DKK/kg (34.55 DKK/kg), corresponding to 41.78 NOK/kg (48.26 NOK/kg). The Freshwater SCT segment made an operational EBIT per kg released smolt of -49.44 DKK/kg (-20.60 DKK/kg), corresponding to -77.23 NOK/kg (-28.77 NOK/kg). The Farming segments achieved higher prices in Q4 2023 than in Q4 2022. Both Farming FO and Farming Scotland segments had lower harvest volume in Q4 2023 compared to Q4 2022. In Q4 2023, the Farming SCT segment had incident-based costs of DKK 48 million (DKK 83 million). The total combined harvest in Q4 2023 of the farming segments in the Faroe Islands and Scotland was 17,067 tonnes gutted weight (24,474 tgw): · Farming FO:                    16,005 tgw (19,276 tgw), · Farming SCT:                   1,062 tgw (5,198 tgw). In 2023, the farming segments have harvested a total of 73,006 tonnes gutted weight (90,603): · Farming FO:                    52,408 tgw (66,686 tgw), · Farming SCT:                   20,598 tgw (23,917 tgw). In Q4 2023, the Farming FO segment made an operational EBIT/kg of 4.01 DKK/kg (13.19 DKK/kg), corresponding to 6.27 NOK/kg (18.43 NOK/kg). The Farming SCT segment made an operational EBIT/kg of -44.97 DKK/kg (-32.64 DKK/kg), corresponding to -70.24 NOK/kg (-45.60 NOK/kg). The Services segment made an operational EBIT/kg of 0.76 DKK/kg (0.05 DKK/kg), corresponding to 1.18 NOK/kg (0.06 NOK/kg). The operational EBIT margin for the segment was 7% (1%). The Sales & Other segment had a revenue of DKK 2,355 million (2,385 million) and an operational EBIT margin of 4% (4%). The operational EBIT/kg was 5.94 DKK/kg (4.33 DKK/kg), corresponding to 9.27 NOK/kg (6.05 NOK/kg). The performance according to the previously used business segment structure can be found in the Appendix. The long-term goal of the Board of Directors is that 30-50% of earnings per share shall be paid out as dividend. Bakkafrost’s financial position is strong with a solid balance sheet, a competitive operation and available credit facilities. The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that DKK 8.70 (NOK 13.26*) per share shall be paid out as dividend. The Annual General Meeting will be convened on Tuesday the 30th of April 2024. * The dividend per share in NOK is subject to changes depending on the exchange rate between NOK and DKK, which will be announced after the Annual General Meeting. OUTLOOK Market Stable supply in Q4 2023 The supply of salmon increased slightly by 0.3% in Q4 2023 compared to Q4 2022, incl. inventory movements. Without inventory movements, the supply reduced 1.8%, according to the latest estimate from Kontali Analyse.  Stable salmon prices in Q4 2023 Salmon spot prices (in EUR) were 0.2% lower this quarter compared to Q4 2022. Prices in Q4 2023 were affected by the nearly unchanged supply and strong demand for salmon from certain markets such as the China and the US.  2% growth in 2024 No growth in global supply is expected for H1 2024. In H2 2024, the global supply is expected to grow around 4%, compared to H2 2023. For the full year 2024, the global supply is expected grow around 2%, excluding inventory movements. Bakkafrost has a strong focus on ensuring a well-balanced flow to the different markets to increase diversification and mitigate market risk. Bakkafrost operates in the main salmon markets, Europe, the USA, and the Far East. Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, Bakkafrost has stopped all trading with Russia. Farming The farming operation in the Faroe Islands performed well in the fourth quarter. The new wellboat Bakkafossur, equipped with dual freshwater treament systems, has greatly enhanced sealice management and resulted in the lowest sealice levels ever. The average harvest weights, growht rates and feed conversion rates also got better during the quarter, especially after October when the last fish from the batch of smolt impaired by reduced hatchery water quality, as mentioned in Q3 2023, were harvested out. Looking ahead, the Faroese farming operation has a strong outlook and Bakkafrost expects to keep increasing harvest weights and improving farming KPI’s in the next quarters. In the Faroese freshwater operation, Bakkafrost has been working intensively for a long time to improve the production of large smolt, which is more complicated. The quality and performance of the large smolt have improved a lot since the first generation came from the Strond hatchery. The large-smolt production is moving into a phase focusing on maintaining consistent size and high quality of the smolt while increasing production volumes. The Norðtoftir, Glyvradal and Viðareiði hatcheries have been expanded which gave a capacity increase of more than 50% and the production and capacity utilisation are now growing steadily. In Q4 2023, Bakkafrost signed a contract to build a big new hatchery in Skálavík, Faroe IsIands, which will increase the production capacity by around 7 million smolt at 500g. The construction will begin in Q1 2024 and when it is finished in the next three years, the annual smolt production capacity in the Faroe Islands will be 24 million smolts of 500g, as explained in the 2024-2028 investment programme. Bakkafrost’s farming operation in Scotland faced difficulties during the fall when the seawater temperatures were higher and biological hazards also rise. The salmon farming industry in Scotland has suffered from major problems in recent years mainly because of micro-jellyfish and other factors that damage the gill health of the fish. However, Bakkafrost’s farming operation has seen better biology since mid-September 2023, resulting in lower mortality. The increased freshwater dual treatment capacity in Scotland is a key factor by improving fish gill health while also keeping sealice levels record low. This has reduced the potential impact of the biological challenges during Q4 2023. Consequently, to leverage the improved biological development, Bakkafrost minimised Q4 2023 harvest volume, allowing fish to grow larger for harvest at higher harvest weights and value in 2024. In order to address the biological risks, Bakkafrost has made strategic adjustments to its short-term plans and production strategy for the Scottish farming operation. A comprehensive risk assessment has been conducted for all farming sites, evaluating the feasibility of stocking and farming these sites using various strains, hatcheries, and smolt sizes. Based on this evaluation, Bakkafrost will prioritise and advance the utilisation of large, high-quality smolt from the Applecross hatchery over external sources. Consequently, Applecross will supply nearly all of the required smolt to the marine sites in 2024. Some farming sites may not be restocked or remain productive during Q3 until the risks have been mitigated through the use of large, high-quality smolt. This approach will reduce the biomass at risk in Q3 and result in around 70% of the 2024 harvest volume being harvested in the first half of the year. The Scottish freshwater operation is focused to grow the production of big and healthy smolt at Applecross, after the first trial-batch of 250g smolt was released in May 2023. In 2024, Applecross is expected to supply 9.1 million smolts at 200-250g, which will make up 98% of the planned smolt release for 2024.  When the Applecross 5 & 6 expansions are completed around year-end 2024, Applecross will be able to produce all smolts for Scotland at around 200-300g. As shown in the Faroe Islands, big and healthy smolt will face lower risks in the marine environment because of shorter production cycles in the sea and more robust salmon. In Q4 2023, the average weight of released smolt in Scotland was 113g, which is 2% lower than in Q4 2022. Smolt release Bakkafrost has guided for a smolt release in the Faroe Islands of around 17.8 million large smolts in 2024. In Scotland, the smolt release in 2024 is expected to be around 9.3 million smolts with an average weight over 200g. The number and average weight of smolts released are key elements of predicting Bakkafrost’s future production.

In the Faroes Islands, it is important to harmonise the size and quality of the smolt as it leads to better utilisation of marine farming sites and increased harvest weights. In 2024, Bakkafrost expects to harvest around 66,000 tonnes gutted weight in the Faroe Islands and 25,000 tonnes gutted weight in Scotland, giving a total of around 91,000 tonnes gutted weight. The quarterly harvest profile is outlined in in the table below. Biological, environmental and market conditions can affect the expected harvest profile. Expected harvest profile as a % of total harvest pr. region Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4FO 20% 25% 27% 28%SCT 25% 44% 16% 14% The estimates for harvest volumes and smolt releases in both geographies are dependent on biological development. Sales & VAP (Value added products) Bakkafrost's highly flexible value chain includes state-of-the-art VAP processing capacity, which enables the company to adapt effectively to rapidly changing market situations. As a result of changes in the Faroese revenue tax, Bakkafrost has adjusted the strategy for contracted VAP (Value-Added Products) to reduce contract exposure for 2024.  For 2024, Bakkafrost has signed contracts covering around 9% of the expected harvest volumes in the Faroe Islands and Scotland combined. FOF (Fishmeal, oil and feed) The outlook of fishmeal and fish oil production is dependent on the availability of raw materials. The ICES 2024 recommendation for blue whiting is 1,530 thousand tonnes, which represents a 12.5% increase from the recommendation for 2023. In 2024 Bakkafrost expects continued high production volumes of fishmeal and normalisation of fish oil production volumes. The major markets for Havsbrún’s fish feed are the internal Faroese and Scottish Farming segments. Investments On the Capital Markets Day on 6 June 2023, Bakkafrost announced a 6.3bn DKK investment plan for 2024-2028. The investments will enable a transformation of the operation in Scotland and provide sustainable growth in the Faroe Islands as well as Scotland. The main purpose of the investments in Scotland is to replicate Bakkafrost’s successful operation in the Faroe Islands. Bakkafrost considers building 2 large energy-efficient hatcheries in Scotland, enabling the implementation of Bakkafrost’s large smolt strategy and giving an annual production capacity above 15 million smolts at 500g. Having large smolt in Scotland will transform the performance, lower the biological risk and increase harvest volumes. In addition to building hatchery capacity, Bakkafrost plans to build a new processing plant to strengthen processing capabilities and increase flexibility in operation. Bakkafrost will also invest in more service vessel capacity to improve the mitigation of biological risk and improve the cost of operation. Further, Bakkafrost will make investments in marine site development. The investments in the Faroe Islands include increasing annual hatchery production capacity to around 24 million smolts at 500g, cost-efficient repurposing of old hatcheries into broodstock operation, expansion of feed production capacity and growing sustainably by optimization of existing sites and new technology. With the investment plan, Bakkafrost expects to sustainably grow the total annual harvest volumes to 165,000 tonnes in 2028. Over the same period, the total annual production capacity in Bakkafrost’s value chain will reach 200,000 tonnes gutted weight.

Nobia strengthens its financial position through a fully guaranteed rights issue of approximately SEK 1,250 million and extends credit facilities

“We have now taken several actions to strengthen our financial position, including divesting non-core assets, the sale and leaseback arrangement for our new factory, and now, resolving on a rights issue and extending our credit facilities. We can now continue to execute on our strategy and finalise the important Jönköping factory that will render us superior product and manufacturing capabilities. By leveraging the full potential of our Nordic operations and drive transformation in our UK business, we are committed to delivering value to shareholders and customers.”, says Nobia’s President and CEO, Jon Sintorn. Summary: · The Rights Issue with preferential rights for existing shareholders will comprise of new shares entailing proceeds of approximately SEK 1,250 million before deduction of transaction costs. · The Board of Directors’ resolution regarding the Rights Issue is subject to approval by an extraordinary general meeting (the “EGM”). The EGM is scheduled to be held on or about 26 March 2024. · The purpose of the Rights Issue is to finance the completion of the Jönköping factory of approximately SEK one billion and to strengthen the balance sheet. · Nobia’s largest shareholders, Nordstjernan Aktiebolag ("Nordstjernan"), If Skadeförsäkring AB ("If Skadeförsäkring") and the Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund (“AP4”), together representing approximately 44.9[1] per cent of the capital and votes in Nobia, have undertaken to subscribe for their respective pro rata shares of the Rights Issue. · Nordstjernan, If Skadeförsäkring and AP4 have further entered into guarantee undertakings for the remaining part of the Rights Issue. Thus, the Rights Issue is covered in its entirety by subscription and guarantee undertakings. · Nordstjernan, If Skadeförsäkring and AP4 have also undertaken to vote in favour of the Rights Issue at the EGM. · The final terms of the Rights Issue will be determined by the Board of Directors on or about 20 March 2024. · Provided that the Rights Issue is approved by the EGM, the record date for the Rights Issue is expected to be 28 March 2024 and the subscription period is expected to run from 3 April 2024 to 17 April 2024. · To ensure the Company’s access to long-term financing to allow for operational and financial flexibility for the Company, Nobia has negotiated an amendment and extension of Nobia’s current SEK five billion revolving credit facilities with its lenders. The current facilities will be partly repaid and reduced to SEK 3,450 million using proceeds from the previously communicated asset divestments and the Rights Issue. The remaining facilities will be extended to 30 June 2027. The amended and restated facilities agreement requires that the Rights Issue is fully subscribed and completed by no later than 30 April 2024. Background and reasons Nobia is a leading European kitchen specialist with a long history of delivering high quality kitchens. The Company has strong market positions in the core Nordic and UK markets, which are underpinned by favourable long-term trends. Recent macroeconomic turbulence, such as rising interest rates, has negatively affected the Company’s operating performance. Furthermore, the Company has undertaken significant investments in the new Jönköping factory which has increased the Company’s net indebtedness. Together, these events have negatively impacted the Company’s financial position. Consequently, the Board of Directors and management have identified a need for strategic actions and to strengthen the Company’s capital structure, through asset divestments, the Rights Issue and an amendment and extension of the Company’s revolving credit facilities, to allow for operational and financial flexibility. The Company’s strategic initiatives focus on maximising cost efficiency, realising the full potential of the Nordic region (e.g., through the new automated factory in Jönköping and harmonised product ranges) and executing the UK transformation program. As a response to the changed market conditions, Nobia announced a group wide cost savings program in January 2023 that is expected to generate full annualised effect of up to around SEK 350 million in the second quarter of 2024, with realised savings of approximately SEK 280 million during 2023. On 19 January 2024, Nobia signed an agreement to divest the new factory building currently being constructed in Jönköping and lease it back under a 20-year rental agreement, with an option for extension for additional 20 years. On 12 February 2024, Nobia announced the strategic decision to focus on its core Nordic and UK markets. In line with this decision, Nobia entered into an agreement to divest its Dutch subsidiary Bribus. On 19 February 2024, Nobia further announced its continued focus on its core markets, and the divestment of ewe in Austria. The new custom-built 129,600 square meter factory in Jönköping is expected to have the capability to deliver complete kitchen orders by the end of 2024 and to enable competitive advantages for Nobia. The advantages include a digitalised order flow from order to delivery, highly automated production, mass customisation at scale, higher service level and shorter lead times through logistic efficiencies. The factory enables further consolidation and flexibility in the Nordic supply chain network and provides capacity for future growth. The increased operational efficiency in the Jönköping factory is expected to improve EBITDA margin for the Nordic region by approximately 3.5 percentage points[2] with additional potential from increased volumes, footprint consolidation and improved customer offering. Since December 2022, a new local management team has driven a strategic move in the UK to become a focused mass premium leader. The transformation in UK is underway with several cost savings and restructuring measures being undertaken in 2023 resulting in positive effects with a more attractive product mix and higher average order value. Furthermore, Nobia plans to broaden its distribution reach beyond its UK store network in a cost-effective manner, including initiatives such as the recent expansion of Magnet Kitchens' reach through a shop-in-shop concept in partnership with Selco, alongside other asset-light distribution models. The Board of Directors and the management team of Nobia expect some stabilisation of the market in 2024 and the market to start recovering in 2025, led by the consumer segment. As a result, and in combination with estimated remaining cash outflow for the Jönköping factory of approximately SEK one billion, leverage levels are expected to increase during 2024 before they are expected to decrease towards the financial target of <2.5x net debt/EBITDA[3]. To ensure the Company’s access to long-term financing and allow for operational and financial flexibility for the Company, Nobia has negotiated an amendment and extension of the Company’s current revolving credit facilities with its lenders, as further described below. Agreements relating to credit facilities Nobia has held dialogues with the lenders under the existing facilities agreement to secure an amendment and extension of the revolving credit facilities until 30 June 2027, and Nobia and the lenders have entered into an amendment and restatement agreement in respect of the existing facilities agreement. The amended and restated facilities agreement entails that the Company’s current SEK five billion facilities are partly repaid and reduced to SEK 3,450 million using proceeds from the previously communicated asset divestments and the Rights Issue. Further, the Company has also agreed with the lenders that new financial terms and conditions (covenants) shall apply. The new financial covenants include minimum liquidity and absolute adjusted consolidated EBITDA excluding IFRS 16. The Company will at a later date undertake to meet other financial covenants, in form of a leverage ratio and an interest coverage ratio, under the facilities arrangement. The amended and restated facilities agreement requires that the Rights Issue is fully subscribed and completed by no later than 30 April 2024. The Rights Issue Against the above background, the Board of Directors of Nobia has resolved on an issue of new shares with preferential rights for Nobia's existing shareholders of approximately, SEK 1,250 million. As further set out below, the Rights Issue is fully covered by subscription and guarantee undertakings by Nobia’s largest shareholders, Nordstjernan, If Skadeförsäkring and AP4. The proceeds from the Rights Issue will be used to finance remaining investments for the Jönköping factory and to strengthen the balance sheet. The Company’s shareholders on the record date shall have the right to subscribe for new shares in the Rights Issue with preferential rights. The record date for the right to participate in the Rights Issue is expected to be 28 March 2024. Subscription for new shares can also be made without preferential rights. Final terms for the Rights Issue, including the amount by which the share capital in the Company is to be increased, the number of new shares to be issued and the subscription price are expected to be announced on or about 20 March 2024. The subscription period is expected to run between 3 April 2024 and 17 April 2024. Voting, subscription and guarantee undertakings Nobia’s largest shareholders, Nordstjernan, If Skadeförsäkring and AP4 have undertaken to subscribe for their respective pro rata shares of the Rights Issue. Such subscription undertakings comprise approximately 44.9 per cent of the Rights Issue. Nordstjernan, If Skadeförsäkring and AP4 have further entered into guarantee undertakings for the remaining part of the Rights Issue. Thus, the Rights Issue is covered in its entirety by subscription and guarantee undertakings. A cash fee for the guarantee undertakings, determined based on current market conditions, of two per cent of the guaranteed amount will be paid to Nordstjernan and If Skadeförsäkring. No compensation is paid for the subscription undertakings, nor for AP4’s guarantee undertaking. Neither the subscription or guarantee undertakings have been secured by, for example, bank guarantees, blocked funds, pledges or similar arrangements. Extra General Meeting (EGM) The Board of Directors will convene the shareholders to the EGM through a separate press release. The EGM is expected to take place on or around 26 March 2024.

Year-end report 2023

CEO comment Nobia executed multiple strategic initiatives during 2023 that will benefit us going forward. We remained profitable at the operating profit level excluding items affecting comparability, despite very tough market conditions and currency headwind, and we have improved the gross margin in all three regions. We also made the strategic decision to focus on the core Nordic and UK markets, leading to divestments of non-core operations in the Netherlands and Austria. Our strategic initiatives focus on maximizing cost efficiency, realizing the full potential of the Nordic region, and continuing to execute the UK transformation program. The cost reduction program, launched early in 2023, continues to yield significant savings and was a strong contributor to the positive operating profit in the quarter, despite a 22% drop in sales. The gross margin was higher for the Group as well as in all regions. Cost reductions, a slight decline in direct material prices, and price increases all contributed to the improvement. We are coming closer to the finalisation of the  Jönköping factory, which is to be fully operational by the end of the year. It is expected to enable several competitive advantages, such as digitalized order flow from order to delivery, highly automated mass-customized production, higher service levels, and shorter lead times. We are also harmonizing our Nordic product ranges and processes and are, at completion of the Jönköping factory, at a point when we can realize scale and efficiency synergies that were not possible before. We are expecting the factory to positively affect our Nordic EBITDA margins by approximately 3.5 percentage points with additional potential from increased volumes. In addition, the new factory gives us opportunities to further optimize the Nordic manufacturing footprint. The UK transformation program continues to progress well. Our local management team in the UK is driving a shift towards becoming a focused mass premium leader. Cost savings and restructuring measures are showing positive effects with, for example, a more attractive product mix, an increased average order value, and a clear gross margin improvement. We will continue to drive further improvements, for example, by adding asset-light distribution models, at the same time as we focus our own store footprint. This is a capital-efficient way to increase our distribution reach, which also makes us more agile in the front end and less volume-sensitive. We have recently reached an agreement for a shop-in-shop concept in partnership with Selco, a leading UK builders merchant. Market conditions remain challenging and sales declined by -22% in the quarter, with even more pronounced decline in volumes. But, there are some positive signs and the decrease in order intake seems to start flattening out. We expect some stabilisation in 2024 and the market to start recovering in 2025, lead by the consumer segment. However, considering the lag between order and delivery, the coming quarters will continue to be challenging. Today, we also announce a fully guaranteed rights issue with preferential rights for existing share-holders of approximately SEK 1,250m and an amendment and extension of the Group’s revolving credit facilities. The purpose is to finance remaining investments for the Jönköping factory and to strengthen the balance sheet allowing for operational and financial flexibility. Together with the recent divestments of Bribus and Ewe, and the sale and leaseback transaction of the Jönköping factory property, our debt situation has been significantly improved. We will continue to work relentlessly on protecting our earnings, executing our strategic initiatives, as well as ensuring that we are ready to capitalize on opportunities when market demand returns. Finally, I want to thank our shareholders, employees, suppliers, and customers for your continued support.Jon Sintorn,President and CEO

Katalysen Ventures publishes year-end report for 2023

Report from CEO Peter Almberg The Market: Since early 2021, the early-stage investment segment has been tested. Markets, however, are inherently destined to rebound and we believe that we have finally reached a turn in momentum. In Katalysen Ventures’ IPO memorandum, we published a growth target that we think is appropriate for a venture developer, given the characteristics of the model and previous performance data: 35% annual growth in portfolio value. This represents average growth over a full economic cycle and we are confident that we will reach this target over time. The Katalysen shares represents an accessible investment in a portfolio of Nordic early-stage innovation. For the past two weeks, the shares are also traded on the Nasdaq INET platform, making it significantly easier for international investors to trade the stock. This is important, since a large part of the company’s shareholders is based abroad, a fact that we are very proud of. In 2023, we have increased our stakes in the portfolio ventures that we think hold the most potential over the next 30 months, and we have significantly reduced our costs, with a further 20% reduction in operating costs starting Q1 2024. Through a partner strategy, we have grown our network and improved our access to expertise. By focusing on developing companies around great partnerships, we can implement lessons learned over the last five years and maximize our own potential for the next five years (more on this soon). To reflect this new strategic direction, we re-designed our logo and website in early 2024. Care: The public launch of ChatGPT in 2022 marked the beginning of a craze reminiscent of the dot-com era. At Katalysen Ventures, we are strong supporters of AI, and we look forward to using its growing capabilities to leverage our own unique competence. While AI may one day overtake human intelligence – which of course is not necessarily good news for people who claim to have a high IQ – we can excel in a world in which passion, curiosity and resilience (AQ) are what separate “winners” from “non-winners”. Indeed, we have observed that it is already the norm for early-stage venture developers. As intelligence takes a giant leap and becomes affordable through AI, we celebrate the chance that it may be made available to all humans in a way that is fair. The keys to "making it" in the future, we believe, will be to have an entrepreneurial mindset, a personal brand and a network. You will also need to care. And we care. Mid-pandemic, we asked all our portfolio companies to fill out a questionnaire to find out what they thought of us as investors and partners. The responses were unanimous: what our entrepreneurs liked was that we genuinely cared about them. Today, when I talk to investors, our shareholders and our board, the response is very similar. That we listen, understand and care is central to who we are and to what makes Katalysen different, in a good way. Adding up our resources such as experience, hands-on problem-solving skills, a quality network, and a knack for financing strategy, results in a very solid partner. And this has always been central to our mission: to be the best partner possible to entrepreneur-led ventures. Another one of Katalysen’s strength lies in our tenacity. We do not give up. We listen, understand, care and constantly look for solutions. Even during as difficult an experience as a company bankruptcy we turned that “defeat” into a fantastic opportunity (see the QuTEM case study). Such an outcome would not have been impossible without relying on our core strengths. Collaborations: With the recent inflation and interest rate increases, start-ups have found it particularly difficult to obtain additional funding while suffering from reduced valuations. These challenges often create tension among shareholders and founders. Partly due to these issues, even fundamentally strong businesses with high potential are struggling, and tensions lead to diminished collaboration. Our philosophy is centred on achieving greater outcomes through collaborative efforts. In the last 24 months, our belief in the power of teamwork as a cornerstone of success has been validated. The first transaction using our new Venture Targeter Framework is a great example of what can be achieved by the great collaboration of all involved parties. We are confident that this transaction will have a significant positive impact on the future value of our portfolio, and we are now looking at similar turnaround opportunities. As venture developer with a collaborative mindset, we are particularly proud to demonstrate how to salvage great IP and turn failure into success. Conclusion: The highlight of the quarter was the inaugural investment of the Venture Targeter Framework into QuTEM. We are currently working on two similar transactions into special situation opportunities, pooling expertise, experience and cash using the same framework. We look forward to soon being able to share more information about how we are capitalising on the lessons learned from the last five years to continue building a unique investment platform. Following a complete, bottom-up revaluation of the portfolio using an upgraded valuation approach, we arrived at a total portfolio valuation that is 1.7% lower than the total portfolio valuation at the end of 2023Q3. Given the economic climate, our portfolio is developing well.

The complete proposal is available at the company and at the company’s website, www.skf.com. At the Annual General Meeting in 2008 the SKF Group introduced a long-term performance share programme for senior managers and key employees. Since then, the Annual General Meeting has resolved each year upon a performance share programme. The Board proposes – in order to continue to link the long-term interests of the participants and the shareholders, strengthening the SKF Group’s ability to attract and retain the best people and to contribute to the SKF Group’s business strategy, its long-term interests and sustainability – that a decision be taken at the Annual General Meeting 2024 on SKF’s Performance Share Programme 2024. The programme is proposed to cover senior managers and key employees in the SKF Group with an opportunity to be allotted, free of charge, SKF B shares in accordance with the following principal terms and guidelines. Under the programme, not more than in total 1,000,000 SKF B shares may be allotted. The allotment of shares shall be related to the level of achievement of the Total Value Added (TVA) target, as defined by the Board, and SKF’s CDP Climate Change score target. The TVA performance measure is weighted 80% and the CDP Climate Change score performance measure is weighted 20%. TVA performance measure TVA is a simplified, economic value-added model promoting greater operating profit, capital efficiency and profitable growth. TVA is the operating profit, less the pre-tax cost of capital. Over the three-year programme period (2024-2026), the TVA performance target range is set annually by the Board against the baseline of the actual TVA achieved in the previous year. The overall performance achievement for the TVA performance measure of the programme is the average of achievements of the annual TVA targets. In order for allocation of shares to take place, the average TVA development must exceed a certain minimum level (the threshold level). In addition to the threshold level, a target level is set. Maximum allotment is awarded if the target level is reached or exceeded. By way of example, if the TVA achievement year 1 is 80%, year 2 is 100% and year 3 is 0%, the overall performance achievement of the programme would then be 60% (80%+100%+0% / 3). CDP Climate Change score performance measure CDP is a global non-profit organization known for its assessments and scoring methodology to evaluate companies’ disclosure and performance relating to climate change and environmental impact. The CDP Climate Change score is based on an extensive questionnaire requiring disclosure and performance in the following categories: Business strategy, Financial planning & scenario analysis, Emissions reduction initiatives, Energy, Governance, Opportunity disclosure, Risk disclosure, Risk management processes, Scope 1 & 2 emissions, Scope 3 emissions, Targets and Value chain engagement. This comprehensive assessment and the resulting score is known across the investor and customer communities as a credible third-party view on companies’ approaches to climate change. The score ranges from A (leadership level) to D- (disclosure level). SKF received an A in 2023 which is in the leadership band. This is higher than the Europe regional average of B, and higher than the metal product manufacturing sector average of C. The score is set annually and the bar is raised every year, reflecting increasing stakeholder expectations. SKF’s performance achievement and CDP score will therefore require continuous improvements. The overall performance achievement for the CDP Climate Change score is the weighted average of the annual performance achievement, based on the following criteria:  SKF’s CDP Climate Change score Performance achievementA 100%A- 75%B 50%<B 0% For example, if SKF’s CDP score is B year 1, A- year 2 and A year 3, the overall performance achievement for the full programme period is 75% (50%+75%+100% / 3).  Provided that the performance measures of the programme are fully met, the participants of the programme may be allotted up to the following maximum number of shares per person within the various key groups: · CEO and President –shares corresponding to a value of 75% of the fixed base salary · Other members of Group Management – shares corresponding to 55% of the fixed base salary or 13,000 shares, whichever is higher · Managers of large business units and similar – 4,500 shares · Other senior managers – 3,000 shares · Other key persons – 1,250 shares If the total outcome of the programme exceeds the threshold level for allotment of shares but the final allotment is below 5% of the target level, payment will be made in cash instead of shares, whereupon the amount of the cash payment shall correspond to the value of the shares calculated on the basis of the closing price for SKF’s B share the day before settlement. If all the conditions included in SKF’s Performance Share Programme 2024 are met, allotment of shares shall be made free of charge following the expiry of the three-year calculation period, i.e. during 2027. Before the number of shares to be allotted is finally determined, the Board shall examine whether the allotment is reasonable considering SKF’s financial results and position, the conditions on the stock market as well as other circumstances, and if not, as determined by the Board, reduce the number of shares to be awarded to the lower number of shares deemed appropriate by the Board. The Board is furthermore entitled to introduce an alternative incentive solution for employees in countries where participation in SKF’s Performance Share Programme 2024 is not appropriate. Such alternative incentive solution shall, as far as practicable, be formulated employing the same conditions as SKF’s Performance Share Programme 2024. The company has 455,351,068 shares in issue when this notice is issued. In order to comply with the obligations of SKF’s Performance Share Programme 2024, a maximum number of 1,000,000 B shares are required, corresponding to approximately 0.2% of the total number of outstanding shares. Assuming maximum allocation under the Performance Share Programme 2024 and a share price of SEK 210, the cost, including social security cost, is estimated at approximately MSEK 252. On the basis of a share price of SEK 290 the cost, including social security cost, is estimated at approximately MSEK 348. In addition, the administrative costs are estimated at approximately MSEK 2.  The Board does not propose for the time being to take any action to hedge SKF’s obligations under the programme. Delivery of shares under the programme shall not take place until 2027. _______________ Number of shares and votes, and documentation When this notice is issued, the total number of shares in the company are 455,351,068, represented by 29,306,933 series A shares and 426,044,135 series B shares, with a total number of votes of 71,911,346.5.

Ponsse´s Financial Statements for 1 January – 31 December 2023

PONSSE PLC, STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE, 20 FEBRUARY 2024, 9:00 a.m.PONSSE’S FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR 1 JANUARY – 31 DECEMBER 2023October-December (continuing operations):– Net sales amounted to EUR 242.8 (224.6) million– Operating profit totalled EUR 13.8 (11.7) million, equalling 5.7 (5.2) per cent of net salesJanuary-December (continuing operations):– Net sales amounted to EUR 821.8 (755.1) million– Operating profit totalled EUR 47.2 (46.6) million, equalling 5.7 (6.2) per cent of net sales– Net result was EUR 30.0 (34.2) million– Earnings per share were EUR 1.07 (1.22)– Order books stood at EUR 229.5 (353.7) million at the end of the financial year– Cash flow from business operations was EUR 30.4 (-17.9) million (continuing and discontinued operations)– Equity ratio was 53.3 (55.0) per cent at the end of the financial year (continuing and discontinued operations)– Ponsse has classified the Russian operations subject to trade as assets held for sale and reported them as discontinued operations. Unless otherwise specified, the figures presented in these financial statements refer to continuing operations.– The Board of Directors´ dividend proposal is EUR 0.55 (0.60) per share.– The company’s euro-denominated operating profit in 2024 is expected to be on par with the operating profit in 2023 (EUR 47.2 million).PRESIDENT AND CEO JUHO NUMMELA:For Ponsse, the start of 2023 was driven by relatively strong order books. While the market situation looked fairly positive at the beginning of the year, the decreased outlook for the forest industry soon started to affect our customers’ investment decisions.While our order books for the second half of the year were weaker than in the comparison period, they increased slightly during the final quarter to EUR 194.2 million. At the end of the period, the company’s order books stood at EUR 229.5 (353.7) million.Forest machine markets were affected, on one hand, by uncertainties caused by inflation and rising interest rates and, on the other, by declining economies across the world. Difficulties in the key drivers of our operations – the sawmill and chemical forest industries – were rapidly reflected in forest machine sales. A decrease in purchasing power reduced private consumption and decelerated demand for sawn goods, board and pulp. Despite this, our customers were highly employed, and harvesting operations in Finland and Sweden in particular were running at high capacity.Machines continued to be delivered normally from Ponsse’s factory in Vieremä throughout the year. The availability of parts improved, reaching an excellent level at the end of the year. This resulted both from quieter general demand for equipment and machine manufacturing and from the measures we carried out in our supplier network. We modified our procurement strategy and built alternative procurement channels for critical components.In 2023, our net sales increased to EUR 821.8 million, driven by the delivery of new machines and the positive situation in maintenance. The growth was 8.8 per cent. Eventually, our net sales for used machines also increased slightly from the comparison period. Our technology company Epec grew as planned.The company’s profitability decreased, with the operating profit rate being 5.7 (6.2) per cent. The loss of the Russian market had a significant impact and the difficulties of Ponsse Latin America Ltda, Ponsse’s subsidiary in Brazil, continued. Ponsse reacted strongly to the situation of its Brazilian subsidiary, and the company is now heading in a better direction. The new Managing Director of Ponsse Latin America Ltda started at the beginning of February 2024. We expect the profitability of our Brazilian subsidiary to improve significantly in 2024.The company’s cash flow amounted to EUR 30.4 (-17.9) million in the period under review. We have been able to improve the efficiency of our working capital and especially release capital tied to material and accessory stocks. While the increase in used machine stocks calmed down towards the end of the period, the stocks increased significantly when examining the year as a whole.Despite the challenges, 2023 was also full of successes. With festivities, we delivered the 19,000th and 20,000th PONSSE forest machines manufactured in Vieremä to our customers. Ponsse has grown rapidly. The PONSSE forest machine number 10,000 was completed in 2015 which means that the number of manufactured machines has doubled in only eight years.Our investments in the development of new products are bearing fruit. During the year, the PONSSE Mammoth, a new addition to our forwarder range with a carrying capacity of 25 tonnes, the new PONSSE Scorpion Giant harvester and the PONSSE H8 harvester head all entered serial production. At the same time, we developed our existing product range to be more competitive. New product properties focused on operator ergonomics and remote connections, including the PONSSE Active Cabin suspension system, the rotating PONSSE Active Seat, and PONSSE Manager Satellite which enables satellite connections in forest machines. The productisation and testing of the PONSSE EV1, a forwarder equipped with an electric powertrain, proceeded as planned, and the second prototype of the concept was completed for customer testing at the end of 2023.Ponsse is planning to update its operating model globally to strengthen its long-term competitiveness and profitability and provide even better customer services. The goal is to have a more global and scalable organisation and operating model. We are especially seeking to strengthen roles with customer responsibility in our sales and service network and planning to establish regional organisations to ensure both local and regional support. The global functions to be possibly established to support these regional organisations and a harmonisation of their operating methods would provide effective support for the success of our customer activities in the future. The planned measures could result in total annual savings of approximately EUR 10 million from 2026 onwards. The Group’s Management Team is moving the planning and execution of these changes forward. They would affect our organisation globally, and any local negotiations with employee representatives will be held in accordance with the local legislation of each country. If the planned operating model is realised, the changes would enter into force at the beginning of June 2024. According to initial estimates, the planned measures could result in the reduction of approximately 120-140 jobs globally.NET SALESConsolidated net sales for the financial year amounted to EUR 821.8 (755.1) million, which is 8.8 per cent more than in the comparison period. International business operations accounted for 74.9 (79.1) per cent of net sales.Net sales were regionally distributed as follows: Northern Europe 44.4 (38.0) per cent, Central and Southern Europe 21.9 (21.4) per cent, North and South America 30.7 (36.5) per cent and other countries 3.0 (4.0) per cent. 1-12/23 1-12/22Net sales from continuing operations 821,800 755,123Net sales from discontinued operations 3,576 32,561Net sales total 825,376 787,684 PROFIT PERFORMANCEThe operating profit amounted to EUR 47.2 (46.6) million.

The authorization includes the right to decide how to acquire treasury shares. Under the authorization, treasury shares may also be repurchased in other proportions than that of the shares held by the shareholders (directed repurchase). The decision to repurchase treasury shares under the authorization may not be taken in such a way that the total number of treasury shares held by the company and its subsidiaries would exceed 10% of the total number of shares. The authorization revokes the authorization granted to the Board of Directors by the AGM on 7 April 2022 and is valid until the closing of the next Annual General Meeting; however no longer than until 30 June 2024.The AGM authorized the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares as well as the issuance of options and other special rights entitling to shares in one of more tranches as laid down in chapter 10, section 1 of the Finnish Companies Act.

A stock exchange release regarding the incentive plans has been published on 3 March 2023. The aim of the new plans is to align the objectives of the shareholders and plan participants for increasing the value of the company in the long-term, to retain the participants at the company and to offer them competitive reward schemes that are based on earning and accumulating the company’s shares.The CEO plan consists of five performance periods, calendar years 2023, 2023-2024, 2023-2025, 2024-2026 and 2025-2027. A restriction period is included in performance periods 2023 and 2023-2024, which begins from the reward payment and ends on 31 December 2025. The matching reward will be paid by the end of May 2024, 2025, and 2026. The matching shares delivered as a matching reward cannot be transferred during a restriction period that will end on 31 December 2025, 31 December 2026, and 31 December 2027. The performance-based reward will be paid by the end of May after the end of each performance period. The shares received as reward based on performance periods 2023 and 2023-2024 cannot be transferred during the restriction period, i.e. 31 December 2025. The amount of rewards to be paid based on the performance periods that began in 2023 will correspond to an approximate maximum total of 75,000 Ponsse Plc shares, also including the portion to be paid in cash (gross reward).The key employee plan consists of three performance periods, each lasting for three calendar years, performance periods 2023-2025, 2024-2026 and 2025-2027. The matching reward will be paid in 2023, 2024 and 2025 after the acquisition of the investment shares and confirmation of reward, as soon as practically possible. The matching shares delivered as a matching reward cannot be transferred during a restriction period that will end on 31 December 2025, 31 December 2026, and 31 December 2027. The performance-based reward will be paid by the end of May after the end of each performance period. The share acquisitions for the first performance periods began on April 28, 2023, and ended on July 12, 2023. The number of shares acquired totaled 16,500.During the financial year, the cost effect of the share-based incentive plans was approximately EUR 0.7 million. For the restriction periods that started in 2023, the total cost effect of the share-based incentive plans is estimated to be around EUR 2.0 million in the years 2023-2025.During the financial period 2021, the Group implemented the restricted share plan, where the reward is based on the participant’s valid employment or director contract and the continuity of the employment or service during a restriction period. The 24-month restriction period of the system ended in 2023 and accordingly, 3,000 company shares were paid as a reward. The expenses were distributed over the entire period, of which the 2023 portion is EUR 56 thousand.SHARE PERFORMANCEThe company’s registered share capital consists of 28,000,000 shares.

We want to promote the well-being of our people, innovate sustainable solutions that respect nature, develop our operations while considering the natural environment, and be a trusted partner for whom communality is an asset.In 2023, we launched a development project to strengthen our readiness to meet the requirements of the EU Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), which came into force at the beginning of 2024. During 2023, we carried out a human rights impact assessment and started work on a double materiality assessment, which will be completed by the end of February 2024. An ESG Controller specialising in sustainability reporting also started at the company.In the company's first human rights impact assessment, we examined and described a process related to Human Rights Due Diligence. As a baseline, we assessed the human rights impacts and risks of Ponsse's operations and specified the key human rights issues and standards in the value chain (Human Rights Impact Assessment). The areas for improvement were assessed taking into account the four key groups of people in the company's human rights responsibility: 1) our work community, 2) customers and end-users, 3) supply chain employees, and 4) people in the surrounding areas and communities.In the double materiality assessment, we identify and prioritise the key economic, social and environmental sustainability issues that have the greatest impact and strategic value for our operations, both in the short and long term. The material impacts, risks and opportunities identified in the assessment form the basis for Ponsse's 2024 sustainability reporting.GOVERNANCEIn its decision-making and administration, the company observes the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act, other regulations governing publicly listed companies and the company’s Articles of Association. The company’s Board of Directors has adopted the Code of Governance that complies with the Finnish Corporate Governance Code approved by the Board of the Securities Market Association. The purpose of the code is to ensure that the company is professionally managed and that its business principles and practices are of a high ethical and professional standard.The Code of Governance is available on Ponsse’s website in the Investors section.NON-FINANCIAL INFORMATION REPORTINGEach year, Ponsse publishes its responsibility report in conjunction with its annual report. The report is also available on the company’s website under the Sustainability and Investors drop-down menus.RISK MANAGEMENTOur risk management is based on the company’s values and strategic and financial goals. The purpose of risk management is to support the company’s strategic objectives and to secure its financial development and the continuity of its business. Ponsse’s management conducts an annual risk assessment that includes the sustainability risks and opportunities impacting the company’s business. Within them, aspects related to climate change, biodiversity, and resource efficiency together with digitalisation and technological development are emphasised.The purpose of risk management is to identify, assess, and monitor business-related risks that may impact the realisation of the company’s strategic and financial objectives or the continuity of business. This information is used to decide what measures will be required to prevent risks and respond to current risks.Risk management is part of the company’s daily business and has been incorporated into its management system. Risk management is directed by the risk management policy approved by the Board of Directors.A risk is any event that may prevent the company from achieving its objectives or threatens the continuity of business. A risk may also be a positive event, in which case the risk is treated as an opportunity. Each risk is assessed on the basis of its impact and probability. The company’s risk management methods include the avoidance, mitigation, and transfer of risk. Risks may also be managed by controlling and minimising their impacts.SHORT-TERM RISK MANAGEMENTOur major short-term risks are related to the global geopolitical situation, sudden economic fluctuations, and to the interest rate level that has remained high. The geopolitical situation increases uncertainty through financial market operability, sanctions, and growing cybersecurity threats.The risks in the financial market may also increase the volatility of developing countries’ foreign exchange markets. The continued instability of the world economy and growing financing costs may also reduce demand for forest machines. Additionally, if the political strikes in Finland continue, Ponsse could suffer significant financial losses. These financial risks relate in particular to the functionality of the production and supply chains.In the challenging situation, Ponsse’s strong financial position is important. In terms of financing, Ponsse has carried out all measures necessary to ensure business continuity, and financial situation is regularly evaluated. The key objective of the company’s financial risk management policy is to manage liquidity, interest, and currency risks. The company’s financial position and liquidity have remained strong due to binding credit limit facilities agreed with several financial institutions. The effect of adverse changes in interest rates is minimized by utilizing credit linked to different reference rates and by concluding interest rate swaps. The effects of currency rate fluctuations are partly mitigated through derivative contracts.The parent company monitors the changes in the Group’s internal and external trade receivables and the associated risk of impairment. The company has long-term and extensive service contracts, which may involve operational risks.Changes taking place in the fiscal and customs legislation in countries to which Ponsse exports may hamper the company’s export trade or its profitability. Global supply chain disruptions can make it more difficult to manage PONSSE forest machine production schedules and it may tie up more capital in the company’s supply chain and increase the risks related to working capital management.In order to strengthen cybersecurity, Ponsse has clarified its software update policy and user manuals. We will improve our ability to detect and react to abnormal activity on our networks, and we regularly test our digital services with our partners against cyber-attacks.ACCOUNTING POLICIES REQUIRING CONSIDERATION BY MANAGEMENT AND CRUCIAL FACTORS OF UNCERTAINTY ASSOCIATED WITH ESTIMATESEstimates and assumptions regarding the future have to be made during the preparation of the financial statements, and the outcome may differ from the estimates and assumptions. Group management utilizes their best judgement when making decisions regarding accounting policies and their adoption. Estimates made when compiling the financial statements are based on the management’s best views on the closing date of the reporting period. The estimates are based on previous experience and assumptions about the future that are deemed the most likely on the date of the financial statements.Trade receivablesOn the date of the financial statements, the Group recognizes a credit loss on receivables for which no payment will probably be received according to its best judgement. The general model specified in IFRS 9 is applied when recognizing provision for expected credit losses.InventoriesOn the date of the financial statements, the Group recognizes impairment losses according to its best judgement. The assessment takes into account the age structure of the inventory and the likely selling price.Change in guarantee provisionThe guarantee provision is based on realized guarantee expenses and on failure history recorded in the previous years. In addition, company may prepare provision for possible individual warranty obligations, if needed.Change in other provisionsThe group has recognized a provision in the item of other provisions based on an agreement entered into by Ponsse Latin America Ltda, as the fulfilment of the contractual obligations is estimated to generate expenses that exceed the expected economic benefits obtained from the agreement. The provision has been measured based on the best possible estimate of the expenses arising from the fulfilment of the obligations on the closing date.Capitalisation of R&D expenditureOn the date of the financial statements, the Group assesses whether the new product is technically feasible, whether it can be commercially utilized and whether future economic benefits will be received from the product, which makes it possible to capitalize development expenditure arising from the design of new or advanced products on the balance sheet as intangible assets.Deferred taxesPreparing the consolidated financial statements requires the Group to estimate its income taxes separately for each subsidiary. The estimates take into account the tax position and the effect of temporary differences due to different tax and accounting practices, such as allocation of income and provisions for expenses. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized as the result of the differences. The possibilities of utilizing a deferred tax asset are estimated and adjusted to the extent that the possibility of utilization is unlikely.GoodwillThe Group carries out annual impairment testing of goodwill and unfinished intangible assets, and evidence of impairment is evaluated as presented above in the accounting policies. Recoverable amounts from cash-generating units are determined as calculations based on value in use. The preparation of these calculations requires the use of estimates.OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTUREThe company’s euro-denominated operating profit in 2024 is expected to be on par with the operating profit in 2023 (EUR 47.2 million).Due to the uncertainty in the markets, the company will consider carefully its investments, continues to monitor its costs, and develops its operative model in order to improve competitiveness. The company monitors changes both in the operating environment and customers’ operating conditions closely.We monitor Ponsse Latin America Ltda -subsidiary’s situation in an enhanced manner and the company takes measures to improve the situation.EVENTS AFTER THE PERIODJanne Loponen has been appointed as the new Managing Director of Ponsse Latin America Ltda, effective 1 February 2024. Janne Loponen will be based in Brazil and will report to Marko Mattila, Chief Sales, Service & Marketing Officer of the Ponsse Group. Fernando Campos Passos, the former Managing Director of Ponsse Latin America Ltda, held the position since 2018. Ponsse has published a press release on 20 February 2024, in which it tells the plans to update its operating model globally to strengthen its long-term competitiveness and profitability and provide even better customer services. The Group’s Management Team is moving the planning and execution of these changes forward. They would affect our organisation globally, and any local negotiations with employee representatives will be held in accordance with the local legislation of each country. If the planned operating model is realised, the changes would enter into force at the beginning of June 2024. The planned measures could result in total annual savings of approximately EUR 10 million from 2026 onwards. According to initial estimates, the planned measures could result in the reduction of approximately 120-140 jobs globally.There are no other known events after the end of the reporting period that would require either adjustments to the information presented for the financial year or disclosure of additional information.ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2024Ponsse Plc’s Annual General Meeting will be held on 9 April 2024, starting at 11:00 a.m. at a place and in a way that are to be announced.BOARD OF DIRECTORS’ PROPOSAL FOR THE DISPOSAL OF PROFITThe parent company Ponsse Plc had 231,603,128.02 euros of distributable funds on 31 December 2023.The company’s Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that a dividend of EUR 0.55 per share shall be paid for the year 2023.

Year-End report January – December 2023

CEO comments Strong sales development during the last quarter of the year Sales in the fourth quarter amounted to SEK 30.1 million (20.6). A new all time high is thus reached, more than SEK 8.0 million higher than the sales record last quarter. This corresponds to organic growth of 46 percent compared to the strong fourth quarter last year. The sales development mainly consists of larger orders from several partners and increased direct sales in prioritized geographic markets. The operating result was our best to date, SEK 8.8 million (2.1), corresponding to a margin of 29 percent (10). For the full year 2023, sales amounted to SEK 89.2 million (+31%) and operating profit to SEK 14.1 million (16% in margin). At the end of the year, the costs were slightly higher than estimated and the cash balance lower than expected. This relates to opportunities that arose regarding SyMRI in 3D and expansion of the collaboration with Philips Healthcare. For example, we made the decision to increase investment in customer exhibitions and launch activities. Furthermore, we prioritized increased investment in processes that provide additional regulatory approvals to sell our new product. Regulatory issues are necessary everyday things in our industry. The counterparty has a very large part of the time plan and thus also how it affects our costs. The commercial organization has the capacity to continue creating increased sales. We are also greatly helped in this by the close cooperation with our industrial partners and our process for regulatory management works well. The cash balance at the balance date has partly been negatively affected by the timing of invoicing. Overall, the year ends strongly in terms of sales. I would have liked to see more of the sales processes completed before the end of the year. The good part of this is that the sales opportunities remain. Thus, these have a positive impact on the beginning of 2024. It should also be mentioned that in December we received a significant order from an MR scanner manufacturer. The order concerns licenses of SyMRI intended for the global market. The licenses will begin to be delivered and recognized as revenue in 2024 and the order value is at least SEK 15 million. SyntheticMR and Philips Healthcare expand global partnership with SyMRI in 3D We are very pleased and proud to now expand our partnership with Philips Healthcare to include SyMRI in 3D. The extended agreement means that the product will be included in the company's global price book and sold in their commercial organization. This will enable Philips Healthcare to offer SyMRI in both 2D and 3D to its customers. By joining forces with them on SyMRI in 3D, we have achieved a crucial milestone on our way to establishing a new standard in healthcare. Our shared mission to improve efficiency, elevate patient care and drive meaningful savings in healthcare reaffirms our commitment to revolutionizing the field. In addition to the fact that we are in the process of obtaining approval for the clinical use of SyMRI in 3D in the USA, we have now obtained approval in the EU. The product is thus CE-marked and available for sale on the European market. With preparations in place, we now eagerly look forward to the commercial launch of SyMRI in 3D in the first half of the year. Looking ahead To continue establishing SyMRI as a standard in healthcare, expanding partnerships with MR scanner manufacturers is a very high priority. Among other things in terms of product development related to SyMRI in 3D. SyMRI in 3D enables precise volumetric estimates of brain regions, a technique commonly referred to as parcellation. It gives clinicians the opportunity to gain deeper insights into the structure and function of the brain. In addition, the exceptional resolution of SyMRI in 3D facilitates comprehensive lesion analysis, ensuring a more accurate and in-depth assessment of medical conditions. SyMRI in 3D will enable doctors to make even better, more informed decisions using quantitative imaging in dementia, multiple sclerosis and various pediatric conditions, among others. With SyMRI in 2D, we have established our customer solution in healthcare. With 3D, we greatly increase the chances of becoming standard in even more clinical contexts. In 2024, we expect revenues exceeding SEK 110 million and an operating margin after depreciation of at least 20%. The current quarter has started positively, well in line with the goals we set for the whole year. Ulrik Harrysson CEO, SyntheticMR AB (publ) This is a translation of the Swedish version of the report. When in doubt, the Swedish wording prevails.

As consideration for shares in Ayima Group, WPTG may issue up to a total of 4,436,203 new class B shares in WPTG as consideration to shareholders in Ayima Group for the shares in Ayima Group, which would give shareholders in Ayima Group an ownership in WPTG amounting to approximately 16 percent of the outstanding capital and 15,8 percent of the votes in WPTG and the current shareholders in WPTG an ownership in the WPTG amounting to approximately 84,2 percent of the outstanding capital and votes in WPTG. Due diligence WPTG has, in connection with the preparations of the Offer, conducted a limited confirmatory due diligence review of Ayima Group, of publicly available information. No information that has not yet been publicly disclosed and that is considered to be inside information has been part of the due diligence review. WPTG’s shareholding in Ayima Group Neither WPTG nor any of its closely related companies or closely related parties own any shares or other financial instruments in Ayima Group that give financial exposure to Ayima Group’s shares at the time of the announcement, nor has WPTG acquired or agreed to acquire any Ayima Group shares or any financial instruments that give financial exposure to Ayima Group’s shares during the six months preceding the announcement of the Offer.

Any acquisitions made or agreed will be in accordance with Swedish law and the Takeover Rules and will be disclosed in accordance with applicable rules.

If an obligation to publish a prospectus should arise, it will mean a delay in the above timetable. Compulsory redemption and delisting In the event that WPTG, whether in connection with the Offer or otherwise, becomes the owner of more than 90 per cent of the shares in Ayima Group, WPTG intends to commence a compulsory redemption procedure in respect of the remaining shares in Ayima Group in accordance with the Swedish Companies Act (Sw. aktiebolagslagen (2005:551)).

Minesto participates in roundtable at International Energy Agency’s invite-only Energy Innovation Forum on Global Energy Transition

IEA has been at the forefront of fostering exchanges on innovative energy technologies between decision makers and international experts for decades. This event featured strong representation from industry, finance, and policy leaders with several key messages shared and agreed upon. · The substitution of fossil with renewable energy is at the core of staying within the 1.5-degree global temperature goal and even though the speed of transition is picking up, it is not fast enough. This is acknowledged, and more private and public initiatives are needed and planned for on a global scale. · The need for innovation complementary to mature technologies such as solar PV, wind turbines and Li-Ion batteries was emphasised heavily, and ocean energy was highlighted as one area with substantial breakthrough potential. · Policy makers exhibit the strongest financial commitment ever to support energy breakthrough innovation through public investments in demonstration facilities and industrial scale-up. Japanese NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation), USA Department of Energy and EU representatives were amongst the public actors outlining their ambitions. The “Managing risks for successful demos” roundtable that Dr Martin Edlund participated in was a fitting platform to not only introduce Minesto to a global audience as a breakthrough energy technology, but also to share insights and learnings on how to accelerate energy transition at large through innovation. “It was duly noted that we were the only representative from the ocean energy technology field at this Global Forum. The key message from both industry and policy on focus areas and action match perfectly with Minesto´s scale-up ambitions from the now grid-connected Dragon 12 to large energy producing arrays,” comments Dr Martin Edlund.

NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO AUSTRALIA, CANADA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, NEW ZEALAND OR SOUTH AFRICA OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO AND/OR IN WHICH THE TENDER OFFER WOULD BE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW. Final result of Flybird Holding Oy's public cash tender offer to the shareholders of Musti Group Plc: Flybird Holding Oy completes the tender offer and commences a subsequent offer period Musti Group Plc                Tender offer                        20 February 2024 at 14:15 EET As previously announced, Flybird Holding Oy (the "Offeror"), a company owned by a consortium comprising Sonae Holdings, S.A. (a subsidiary wholly-owned and controlled by Sonae - SGPS, S.A. ("Sonae")), Jeffrey David, Johan Dettel and David Rönnberg (the "Consortium"), and Musti Group Plc (the "Company" or "Musti"), have entered into a combination agreement on 29 November 2023 (as amended, the "Combination Agreement"), pursuant to which the Offeror has announced a recommended voluntary public tender offer to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares in Musti that are not held by Musti or any of its subsidiaries (the "Shares" or, individually, a "Share") (the "Tender Offer"). The Offeror has published a tender offer document, dated 15 December 2023 concerning the Tender Offer (the tender offer document, as supplemented from time to time, the "Tender Offer Document"). The offer period for the Tender Offer commenced on 18 December 2023, at 9:30 (Finnish time) and expired on 15 February 2024, at 16:00 (Finnish time). According to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, the completion of the Tender Offer is subject to, among other things, the fulfilment or waiver by the Offeror of the condition that the Tender Offer has been validly accepted with respect to the Shares representing, together with any other Shares otherwise acquired or held by the Offeror (including the Shares to be contributed to the Offeror by the Consortium members) at or prior to the result announcement date, more than ninety (90) per cent of the Shares and voting rights in the Company calculated on a fully diluted basis and otherwise in accordance with Chapter 18, Section 1 of the Finnish Companies Act (624/2006, as amended, the "Finnish Companies Act") (the "Minimum Acceptance Condition"). As announced by the Offeror in connection with the preliminary results of the Tender Offer on 16 February 2024, the Offeror decided that it will waive the Minimum Acceptance Condition, complete the Tender Offer in accordance with its terms and conditions and commence a subsequent offer period, provided that the final result of the Tender Offer confirms that the Tender Offer has been validly accepted and not validly withdrawn with respect to Shares representing, together with any Shares otherwise held by the Offeror (including the Shares to be contributed to the Offeror by the Consortium members) prior to the date of the announcement of the final result of the Tender Offer, on a fully diluted basis, more than forty (40) per cent of the Shares and voting rights in the Company as calculated in accordance with Chapter 18, Section 1 of the Finnish Companies Act. Based on the final result of the Tender Offer, the 11,607,737 Shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the Tender Offer represent approximately 34.77 per cent of all the Shares and voting rights and, together with the 2,846,029 Shares otherwise acquired or held by the Offeror (including the Shares to be contributed to the Offeror by the Consortium members), represent approximately 42.99 per cent of all the Shares and voting rights in the Company calculated on a fully diluted basis and otherwise in accordance with Chapter 18, Section 1 of the Finnish Companies Act. The Offeror has therefore decided to waive the Minimum Acceptance Condition and as all other conditions to completion have been fulfilled, the Offeror will complete the Tender Offer in accordance with its terms and conditions. The Tender Offer is expected to be completed on or about 5 March 2024. Comment on the Tender Offer result, Cláudia Azevedo, Board member and Chief Executive Officer, Sonae: "We are thrilled at the opportunity of adding Musti to our portfolio of businesses and as such have decided to proceed with the tender offer by waiving the minimum acceptance condition. Further, we are providing Musti shareholders who have not yet tendered their shares with an additional two-week opportunity to accept the tender offer. Our offer price of EUR 26.10 in cash represents a substantial premium in relation to the pre-tender offer share price. We remain confident that the consortium is the ideal owner to enable the company to further expand and focus on meeting the evolving needs of Musti's client base." The offer price will be paid on or about 5 March 2024, to each shareholder of Musti, who has validly accepted, and not validly withdrawn, the Tender Offer in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer. The offer price will be paid in accordance with the payment procedures described in the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer. The actual time of receipt of the payment of the offer price will depend on the schedules of money transactions between financial institutions. In order to provide those shareholders of Musti who have not yet accepted the Tender Offer with a further possibility to accept the unconditional Tender Offer at a best and final offer price of EUR 26.10 per Share, the Offeror has decided to commence a subsequent offer period for the Shares in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer (the "Subsequent Offer Period"). The Subsequent Offer Period shall commence on 21 February 2024 at 9:30 (Finnish time) and expire on 6 March 2024 at 16:00 (Finnish time). During the Subsequent Offer Period, the Tender Offer can be accepted in accordance with the acceptance procedure described in the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer. As the Offeror has declared the Tender Offer unconditional, all acceptances will be binding and cannot be withdrawn. Further instructions can be obtained from the relevant account operator or asset manager or Nordea Bank Abp from tender.offers@nordea.com. The Offeror will announce the preliminary percentage of the Shares validly tendered during the Subsequent Offer Period on or about 7 March 2024, and the final percentage on or about 11 March 2024. The offer price will be paid to each shareholder who has validly accepted the Tender Offer during the Subsequent Offer Period on or about 20 March 2024. The actual time of receipt of the payment will depend on the schedules of money transactions between financial institutions.

Proposal for resolution under Item 16 The most recent guidelines adopted by the General Meeting can be found in Note C2 on pages 137–138 of Essity’s Annual Report 2023. The company’s application of the guidelines can be found in the remuneration report for 2023 on pages 185–186 and in Note C2 of the Annual Report 2023. The Board of Directors has decided to propose to the Annual General Meeting 2024 the following guidelines for remuneration of senior executives: “These guidelines shall govern remuneration to directors, the President, Executive Vice President and other members of the executive team (below referred to as “senior executives”). The guidelines do not apply to remuneration decided upon by the General Meeting.  Remuneration principles  Successful implementation of the company’s business strategy and the fostering of the company’s long-term interests, including its sustainability, require that the company is able, through competitive remuneration on market terms, to recruit, incentivize and retain skilled employees. The total remuneration package must therefore be on market terms and competitive on the executive’s field of profession, and must be related to the executive’s responsibilities, powers and performance. The remuneration may comprise fixed salary, short- and long-term variable remuneration, other benefits and pension. The company’s business strategy is described in the Annual Report.  Variable remuneration  Variable remuneration shall be based on results relative to established short- and long-term targets for Essity’s incentive programs, which shall contribute to the fulfilment of the objectives established by the company or to the performance of the company’s share. Remuneration shall be aimed at promoting the company’s business strategy and long-term interests, including its sustainability. Furthermore, variable remuneration shall be paid as cash remuneration and shall not be included in the basis for pension computation. The short-term element shall not exceed 100 percent of the fixed annual salary and the long-term element shall not exceed 100 percent of the fixed annual salary. The maximum variable remuneration level shall be determined per individual, taking into account the total remuneration in relation to the specific role, the local market, the terms of employment or the individual performance. Short-term performance targets shall include either organic growth, product development, earnings, cash flow, capital efficiency, sustainability, return or individual targets, or a combination thereof. Long-term performance targets shall include either sustainability, total shareholder return (TSR), or a combination thereof, and – in order to create a long-term perspective – be combined with requirements for senior executives to use the compensation net of tax to invest in the Essity share with a minimum holding period of three years.  The company shall have the possibility to withhold payment of variable remuneration where necessary and possible according to law, provided there are special reasons for so doing and such a measure is necessary to meet the company’s long-term interests, including its sustainability. Furthermore, the company shall have the possibility provided by applicable law to demand repayment of any variable remuneration paid based on erroneous grounds.  Pension and other benefits Pension benefits shall be defined contribution, and the annual premium shall not exceed 40 percent of the fixed annual salary. Other, lesser benefits may include medical insurance, company car, fitness allowance as well as membership and service fees, training/education and other support.  A notice of termination period of not more than two years shall apply upon termination of the employment relationship where the termination is initiated by the company, and of not more than one year where the termination is initiated by the executive. There shall be no severance pay.  Decision-making process and reporting  Matters relating to remuneration to senior executives shall be addressed by the Board’s Remuneration Committee and, with respect to the President, decided upon by the Board. The duties of the Remuneration Committee shall also include preparing Board decisions regarding proposals for guidelines for remuneration to senior executives, performing oversight as well as monitoring and assessing the application thereof. When the Board or the Remuneration Committee addresses and decides on remuneration-related matters, senior executives may not be present insofar as the matter relates to them. With respect to the calculation of variable remuneration, an audit certificate must be obtained before any decision is taken regarding payment. In the preparation of the remuneration guidelines, consideration has been given to salary and employment conditions for the company’s other employees, such as information regarding total remuneration, components of the remuneration as well as the increase in remuneration and the rate of increase over time, and the company’s equality of opportunity policy.  The Board shall prepare a remuneration report.  Application of and deviation from the guidelines  The Board may decide to temporarily deviate from the guidelines, wholly or in part, if there are special reasons for doing so in an individual case and deviation is necessary to satisfy the company’s long-term interests, including its sustainability. The duties of the Remuneration Committee include preparing Board decisions on remuneration issues, including decisions regarding deviations from the guidelines. With respect to employment relationships governed by rules other than Swedish rules, appropriate adjustments may take place with respect to pension benefits and other benefits to ensure compliance with such rules or local practice, whereupon the overarching purpose of these guidelines shall be attained as far as possible.  The guidelines shall not take precedence over mandatory terms of employment law legislation or collective agreements. Nor shall they apply to already executed agreements. Description of significant changes compared to previous guidelines  The changes are only editorial and are proposed for clarification purposes. These guidelines shall apply from the Annual General Meeting 2024 until further notice.” Information on the company’s costs for remuneration of senior executives can be found in Note C2 on pages 138–139 of the Annual Report 2023. Proposal for resolution under Item 17 The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting 2024 resolves to approve a cash-based incentive program which is directed to senior management as well as certain other executives and key employees in Essity (the “Program”) as follows. In order to encourage a common interest for the participants and the shareholders of long-term good return and the company’s ability to recruit and retain key employees, the Board of Directors considers that the company shall have cash-based incentive programs. Such programs should be approved annually and have performance conditions related to (i) the relative value development of Essity’s class B share, and (ii) reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The Board of Directors also considers that there should be a requirement for the participants’ own investment in Essity shares and that such shares should be held for a period of at least three years. The Program is exclusively cash-based and will therefore not result in any dilution of the number of shares outstanding. Essity has for a number of years resolved on similar cash-based programs. The programs are described in the company’s Annual Reports and in the remuneration reports presented to the Annual General Meeting for approval. The Board of Directors’ assessment is that these programs have worked very well. Against this background, the Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting 2024 resolves on a cash-based incentive program, as further described below. Principal terms and conditions of the Program The proposed Program for 2024–2026 shall be based on the following principal terms and conditions. (a)   The Program is proposed to be open to senior management as well as certain other executives and key employees in the Essity group, a total of approximately 390 persons (the “Participants”). (b)   The Participants shall have the opportunity, depending on satisfaction of certain performance conditions in accordance with paragraph (c) below, to obtain a cash remuneration (the “Cash Remuneration”) after the end of a measurement period which covers the years 2024–2026 (the “Measurement Period”). The Cash Remuneration for each Participant may not exceed a certain percentage of the Participant’s fixed annual cash salary (gross) for 2026, as follows: (i) for the President, a maximum of 50 percent, (ii) for other members of the senior management, a maximum of 80 percent and (iii) for other Participants, a maximum of 50 percent. The maximum variable remuneration level shall be determined per individual, taking into account the total remuneration in relation to the specific role, the local market, the terms of employment or the individual performance. (c)   Payment of the Cash Remuneration shall depend on the degree of satisfaction of the following performance conditions for the Program under the Measurement Period: (i)           A financial target consisting of the total shareholder return (“TSR”) on the company’s class B share under the Measurement Period in relation to a benchmark group of other companies (the “TSR Condition”).[1] The benchmark group shall to 60 percent consist of companies which are comparable with the operations in the company’s business area Consumer Goods and to 20 percent each consist of companies that are comparable with the operations in the business area Health & Medical and Professional Hygiene, respectively.[2]               A condition for payment is that the TSR of Essity’s class B share is not lower than the weighted TSR outcome for the benchmark group under the Measurement Period (the “TSR Minimum Level”). If the TSR Minimum Level is not reached, no payment of Cash Remuneration related to the TSR Condition will be made. For maximum payment (100 percent), it is required that the TSR of Essity’s class B share exceeds the weighted TSR outcome for the Benchmark Group with at least 5 percentage points during the Measurement Period (the “TSR Maximum Level”). Should the TSR of Essity’s class B share be between the TSR Minimum Level and the TSR Maximum Level during the Measurement Period, a linear payment will be made. (ii)          A sustainability target related to the company’s reduction of actual greenhouse gas emissions during the Measurement Period (the “Sustainability Condition”). The Sustainability Condition is connected to the target adopted by the company to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 35 percent by 2030 compared to the base year 2016 (which means an average reduction of 2.5 percent per year).[3]               A condition for payment of Cash Remuneration related to the Sustainability Condition is that the company reduces greenhouse gas emissions during the Measurement Period by at least 7.5 percent on a linear basis compared to the base year 2016 (the “Sustainability Target”). If the Sustainability Target is reached, full payment of Cash Remuneration relating to the Sustainability Condition will be made. If the Sustainability Target is not reached, no payment relating to this target will be made.[[[4]]] (iii)         The TSR Condition will be weighted 80 percent and the Sustainability Condition 20 percent, when payment of the Cash Remuneration is decided. (d)   Cash Remuneration will normally be paid only after the expiration of the Measurement Period. (e)   Participants shall normally be invited to the Program during the first year of the Program. A prerequisite for a Participant to be able to receive full Cash Remuneration, is that the Participant has been permanently employed withing the Essity group throughout the Measurement Period. If a Participant has commenced its employment within the Essity group during the Measurement Period, the payment of Cash Remuneration shall be made pro rata. (f)    Each Participant shall undertake, for as long as the Participant is employed within the Essity group, to acquire Essity shares for (i) the total paid net amount of the Cash Remuneration regarding senior management, and (ii) at least half the total paid net amount regarding other Participants, no later than 30 June 2027 (or as soon as possible thereafter if the Participant has been prevented from acquiring Essity shares at such time due to applicable insider rules), and to retain such shares for a period of at least three years after the acquisition, with certain exemptions approved by the Board of Directors. If a Participant does not acquire or retain Essity shares in accordance with the above, the Participant’s right to payment under future incentive programs to which the Participant has been invited to participate, shall lapse. (g)   If extraordinary changes in the Essity group or in the market occur which, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, would result in a situation where the conditions for Cash Remuneration under the Program become unreasonable, the Board of Directors shall be entitled to make adjustments to the Program, including, among other things, be entitled to resolve on a reduced right to Cash Remuneration, or that no Cash Remuneration shall be paid at all. (h)   The Board of Directors shall be authorized to establish the detailed terms and conditions for the Program. The Board of Directors may, in that regard, make necessary adjustments of these general terms and conditions due to changed circumstances or to satisfy certain regulations or market conditions outside Sweden. (i)    Participation in the Program presupposes that such participation is legally possible in the various jurisdictions concerned. Measurement Period and vesting period The Measurement Period for the performance conditions under the proposed Program will cover the financial years 2024–2026. The intention of the Board of Directors is that also future programs shall have a measurement period of three years. In order to receive full Cash Remuneration, employment within the Essity group throughout the vesting period is required. Further, the vesting period, which is three years, shall be combined with a requirement that the Participant must undertake to acquire and hold Essity shares for at least a three-year period after the acquisition, in accordance with above. Required long-term nature of the Program is achieved by the above stated requirements which totals six years. Costs for the Program, dilution, etc. The cost for the Program, including social security charges, covering approximately 390 employees, amounts to a maximum of SEK 280 million assuming full satisfaction of both of the performance conditions for all Participants in the Program. Thus, the cost of the Program amounts to approximately 1.4 percent of Essity’s total cost for salaries and remuneration, including social security charges for the financial year 2023. The Program is cash-based and does not entail any dilution in the number of shares outstanding for the company’s shareholders. No hedging arrangements are intended to be made with regard to the Program’s financial exposure. Preparations of the proposal The proposed Program has been prepared by Essity’s Remuneration Committee. The Remuneration Committee has presented documentation to the Board of Directors, whereafter the Board of Directors has resolved that the Program shall be referred to the Annual General Meeting 2024 for approval. Majority requirements The Annual General Meeting’s resolution on approval of the Program requires a simple majority of the votes cast. Other incentive programs in Essity The company’s other incentive programs are described in more detail in Essity’s report on remuneration for 2023, which is included in the company’s Annual Report 2023 and is available on the company’s website, www.essity.com. Proposal for resolution under Item 18 The Board of Directors makes the assessment that it would be advantageous for the company to be able to adapt the capital structure and to be able to acquire own shares to be used as payment or financing on account of acquisitions of companies or businesses, and thereby contribute to increased shareholder value. Hence, the Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorize the Board of Directors to resolve on acquisition and transfer of own class B shares on the following main terms and conditions. a. Acquisition of own shares Acquisition of class B shares shall be made on Nasdaq Stockholm at a price within the at each time prevailing price interval for the share on the marketplace, meaning the interval between the highest purchase price and the lowest selling price. Payment for the shares shall be made in cash. The authorization may be exercised on one or several occasions until the Annual General Meeting 2025. A maximum number of class B shares may be acquired such that Essity’s holding at each time does not exceed 10 percent of the total number of outstanding shares in Essity. The Board of Directors has issued a statement pursuant to Chapter 19, Section 22 of the Swedish Companies Act. b. Transfer of own shares on account of company acquisitions etc. Transfer of class B shares may be made on Nasdaq Stockholm, as well as outside of Nasdaq Stockholm, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights and with or without provisions regarding contribution in kind or set-off rights. The shares may be used as payment for acquisitions of companies or businesses or to finance acquisitions of companies or businesses. Transfer may be made of the maximum number of shares held by Essity at the time of the Board of Directors’ resolution. The authorization may be exercised on one or several occasions until the Annual General Meeting 2025. Transfers made outside of Nasdaq Stockholm may be made at a minimum price per share corresponding to an amount in close connection with the price of the company’s class B shares on Nasdaq Stockholm at the time of the decision of transfer. Transfers made on Nasdaq Stockholm may be made at a price within the each time prevailing price interval of the share. The purpose of the proposed authorizations is to be able to adapt the company’s capital structure and to be able to use repurchased shares as payment or financing on account of potential acquisitions of companies or businesses, and thereby contribute to increased shareholder value. Majority requirements The Meeting’s resolutions under Item 18 require the support of shareholders representing at least two-thirds of the votes cast as well as of the shares represented at the Meeting. The Nomination Committee The Nomination Committee for the Annual General Meeting 2024 is composed of Helena Stjernholm, AB Industrivärden, the Chair of the Nomination Committee, Anders Oscarsson, AMF and AMF Fonder, Amy Wilson, Norges Bank Investment Management, Marianne Nilsson, Swedbank Robur Fonder and Pär Boman, Chairman of the Board of Essity.

Over the years the Company has evolved and now operates across the whole value chain, serving individuals with chronic mobility challenges in need of prosthetics, neuro orthotics and bracing solutions. Today the Company operates several product and patient care brands in these segments, creating an opportunity to establish a unified parent entity with a shared purpose of helping people live a Life Without Limitations. “In our journey to become a global provider of mobility solutions, we have been fortunate to add several individual brands to our portfolio that all greatly benefit from being part of a synergistic organization, servicing patients in need of prosthetics, neuro orthotics, and bracing & supports solutions. The structure of our organization needs to reflect this evolution and therefore we are establishing Embla Medical as our parent entity. This structure will enable all our established brands to flourish within their respective markets while harvesting synergies and support from Embla Medical,” says Sveinn Sölvason, President and CEO. In Norse mythology, Embla was the first woman on earth and references new beginnings, movement, and freedom. The name further embraces the Company’s Nordic heritage. The name change to Embla Medical will not affect customers doing business with its subsidiaries. Embla Medical will be the parent to product brands Össur, College Park, and FIOR & GENTZ in addition to the Company’s portfolio of patient care facilities around the world. The customer facing brands will therefore continue to provide patients and providers with the high-quality mobility solutions and exceptional service they are known for. This proposal is subject to approval at the Annual General Meeting, which will be held on 13 March 2024. Össur’s majority shareholder, William Demant Invest A/S, supports the proposal. As soon as possible after the official name change, the trade ticker on Nasdaq Copenhagen will be changed to EMBLA. No other changes will be made to the listing. Further information Edda H.

Penneo achieves 26% year-on-year ARR growth in 2023

2023 performance highlights · ARR increased by 18.4M DKK to 89.3M DKK corresponding to 26% year-on-year (YoY) growth at the end of the year · ARR increase from Newbiz amounted to 10.1M DKK compared to 8.5M DKK in 2022 · ARR increase from Uplift amounted to 11.4M DKK compared to 9.1M DKK in 2022 · ARR lost to Churn amounted to 3.2M DKK compared to 2.2M DKK in 2022 · ARR from foreign markets increased by 7.1M DKK compared to 5.2M DKK in 2022 · EBITDA amounted to negative 8.7M DKK compared to negative 11.1M DKK in 2022 · Cash flow from operating activities amounted to positive 7.5M DKK compared to negative 7.7 in 2022 · Cash flow from investing activities amounted to negative 22.8M DKK compared to 19.4M DKK in 2022 2024 Guidance  ARR Penneo expects continued growth in ARR and guides ARR at the level of 105-112M DKK at the end of 2024 corresponding to an ARR growth rate of 18-25%. The outlook is based on currency exchange rates per end of 2023. EBITDA Penneo expects an EBITDA at a level of 5M DKK to 10M DKK.  As part of enhancing value creation in Penneo, the board will continue the work of formulating financial goals for Penneo. These financial goals are expected to be announced in the first half of 2024. Business summaryIn 2023, the company continued its growth pattern ending on a year-on-year ARR growth of 26%. ARR increased by 18.4M DKK compared to 15.5M DKK in 2022, reaching a year-to-date total of 89.3M DKK.  In 2023, there were fluctuations in currency exchange rates, especially regarding the Norwegian krone compared to the Danish krone. This negatively impacted our 2023 ARR by 0.6M DKK, which means that currency fluctuations concealed a slightly more positive ARR development. For background, Penneo reports its ARR using the currency exchange rates at the end of each quarter. In a constant currency rate scenario, Penneo would have achieved 89.9M DKK in ARR over the last 12 months corresponding to a year-on-year growth of 27%. In other words, currency fluctuations are to some extent masking a more positive underlying trend in our business.  During 2023, our sales teams continued facing a market that is characterized by cautious buying behavior, which has been persistent since late 2022. This led to smaller initial sales commitments from new customers and, consequently, smaller initial sales commitments. Notably, this trend is more pronounced in our established markets, including Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, whereas our new market in Belgium is showing stronger growth in both customer acquisition and larger initial deal sizes. In general, however, the trend of lower deal sizes in some markets has been offset by a strong performance in acquiring new customers. For instance, in 2023, Penneo brought on board a total of 584 new customers up from 404 new customers the previous year. In other words, while Penneo is closing smaller deals on average, this is being outweighed by the higher volume of deals, driven mainly by our success in Belgium. Despite lower deal sizes, this is also why Penneo’s new business ARR amounted to 10.1M DKK in 2023, compared to 8.5M DKK in 2022.  Given Penneo’s low customer churn rate of 4% (year-on-year result in 2023) and its proven track record of uplift, the enhanced capacity to acquire new customers is particularly valuable. Our customers tend to remain with us and increase their purchases over time. As a result, in 2023 alone, the increase in ARR from uplift reached 11.4M DKK, a notable improvement compared to 9.1M DKK in 2022, while the year-on-year ARR uplift in 2023 amounted to 16%. In 2023, the share of new business ARR from foreign markets continued growing and now accounts for 60% of our total new business ARR. This was driven by Belgium where 184 new customers were acquired in 2023 which is a 171% increase in ARR compared to 2022. Speaking of foreign markets, Penneo is gearing up for our next expansion, targeting Germany due to its large size and attractive commercial potential despite challenges such as low digitalization and eID adoption. At the end of 2023, Penneo’s cash position was 42.2M DKK. As we move forward, our approach is to invest the cash that is available and continuously ensure that we have a clear path to a cash positive position given the cash available. At the end of 2024, we expect to reach a position where our ARR will exceed our overall cost base, positioning us to achieve at least a cash neutral status on a yearly basis by 2025 according to our current projections.
