Oslo, 13 December 2016 - Reference is made to the stock

exchange releases from Axactor AB (publ) ("AXA" or the

"Company") published 25 October 2016 regarding the

commencement of the subscription period for the subsequent

repair offering of up to 50,000,000 new shares ("Offer

Shares") in the Company (the "Subsequent Offering").

The subscription period in the Subsequent Offering expired at

16:30 hours (CET) yesterday, 12 December 2016. The preliminary

results indicate that a total of 125.8 million shares were

subscribed for and the Subsequent Offering was consequently

oversubscribed. The preliminary result indicates that 421.1

million subscription rights were utilised. Twelve subscription

rights gave the holder a right to subscribe and be allocated

for one Offer Share in the Subsequent Offering.

The Board of Directors will resolve the allocation of the

Offer Shares as soon as possible and according to the

allocation principles set out in the prospectus dated 25

November 2016. The final result will be made available as soon

as the allocation has been resolved by the Board of Directors.

Offering.
