connection with the demerger of WWASA.

The demerger, in which the shareholding in NAL,

against a pro rata distribution of the shares in

Treasure to the existing shareholders of WWASA, was

applicable to the demerger expired at 24:00 hours CET

on 6 June 2016 and the consummation of the demerger

will be registered with the Norwegian Register of

Business Enterprises following close of trading on

The consideration shares in Treasure will be

(the record date). Eligible shareholders will receive

one consideration share for each share they own in

WWASA as of the cut-off date as recorded in the VPS as

of the record date. It is expected that the

consideration shares will be delivered and made

available to eligible shareholders of WWASA on 10 June

2016. The consideration shares will, upon consummation

From and including 8 June 2016, shares in WWASA will

trade exclusive of rights to shares in Treasure.
