Takeovers

The Board of Directors will handle any possible takeover in accordance with Norwegian corporate law and its fiduciary duties. Neither the Articles of Association nor underlying steering document prevent or limit the opportunity for investors to acquire shares in the Company, nor do they impose restrictions relative to takeover attempts or authorise measures to be taken by the Board of Directors to interfere. The Board of Directors will not seek to hinder or obstruct an offer for the Company’s activities or shares unless there are particular reasons for this. The Board of Directors has so far chosen not to adopt or publish any explicit guiding principles for how it will act in the event of a takeover bid.
