Subsequent Offering

In the Subsequent Offering, the Company will, subject to

applicable securities laws, grant rights to subscribe for

Offer Shares to shareholders in the Company as of close of

trading on 12 October 2016 as registered in the Norwegian

Central Securities Depository (the "VPS") on 14 October 2016

(the "Record Date") and who were not allocated Shares in the

Private Placement, whether they had subscribed for shares in

the Private Placement or not, and who are not resident in a

jurisdiction where such offering would be unlawful, or would

(in jurisdictions other than Sweden or Norway) require any

prospectus filing, registration or similar action (each such

shareholder an "Eligible Shareholder", and collectively,

"Eligible Shareholders"). Please see section 20.5 in the

Prospectus regarding record date for shareholders registered

in Euroclear Sweden.

The subscription period in the Repair Offering commences on

28 November 2016 at 09:00 CET and will end on 12 December

2016 at 16:30 CET (the "Subscription Period").

The subscription price in the Repair Offering is NOK 2.60 per

Offer Share, which is the equal to the subscription price in

the Private Placement.

For each share held on the Record Date, each Eligible

Shareholder will be granted one Subscription Right. Twelve

Subscription Rights give the holder a right to subscribe for

one Offer Share in the Subsequent Offering. The Subscription

Rights will not be tradable or listed on the Oslo Stock

Exchange. Over-subscription in the Subsequent Offering is

permitted, while subscription without Subscription Rights is

not allowed.

In order to subscribe for shares, one of the Managers must

receive a complete and duly signed subscription form within

the end of the Subscription Period. Further instructions

regarding the subscription procedure is available in the

Prospectus.

Subscription Rights not used to subscribe for Offer Shares

prior to 16:30 CET on 12 December 2016 will lapse without

compensations to the holder and consequently be of no value.

Notifications of allocation in the Subsequent Offering are

expected to be issued on or about 13 December 2016. The due

date for payment of allocated Offer Shares is 16 December

2016 (the "Payment Due Date"). Delivery of the Offer Shares

to investors' VPS accounts is expected to take place on or

about 28 December 2016. Trading in the Offer Shares on the

Oslo Stock Exchange is expected to commence on or about 28

December 2016 under the trading symbol "AXA".

Carnegie and DNB Markets acted as joint bookrunners in the

Private Placement.
