De-mutualisation and merger within the Alandia Insurance Group

Further to our announcements of 25 February 2014 and 12 June 2014, a second general meeting of Redarnas Ömsesidiga Försäkringsbolag (“RÖF”, Finnish business identity code 0145065-2) has today approved the de-mutualisation and merger plan to reorganise RÖF into a limited liability insurance company and to merge RÖF with its wholly owned insurance subsidiary Försäkringsaktiebolaget Alandia (”Alandia”, 0205048-2). RÖF is an Åland-based shipowners’ mutual insurance company and parent company of the Alandia Insurance Group. In the merger RÖF is the acquiring company and Alandia the acquired company.

Implementation of the plan requires additional consent from the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority in compliance with the Insurance Companies Act, Chapter 19, Section 5 and Chapter 22, Section 4. According to the plans, the process will be carried out in such a way that both the change in the legal form of RÖF and the merger are registered on 31 December 2014.

Estimated timetable for continued execution of the plan:

During September 2014: Consent from the Financial Supervisory Authority.
31 December 2014: Registration in the Trade Register of the change in legal form, new articles of association and merger.
