The arbitration panel confirms Klövern AB's right to redeem the minority shares

On 6 December 2011, Klövern AB (publ), reg. no. 556482-5833, ("Klövern") made a
public offer to the shareholders of Dagon AB, reg. no. 556431-0067, ("Dagon") to
acquire all outstanding shares in Dagon ("The Offer").
Dagon has a share capital amounting to SEK 117,904,995 consisting of 23,580,999

The arbitration panel confirmed in an award announced in Stockholm on 3 January
2013 that Klövern was entitled, and is obliged, to redeem the

redemption amount that Klövern is to pay per Dagon share at SEK 80 with a
supplement for interest at an amount corresponding to the reference rate from
time to time with an addition of two percentage points from 17 April 2012 to 8
March 2013. Thereafter, interest will be paid at an amount corresponding to the
reference rate from time to time with an addition of eight percentage points
until payment has been made in full.
The arbitration award has not been appealed against pursuant to Chapter 22,

Klövern has decided to redeem all remaining shares in Dagon and will pay the
redemption amount together with interest.
