Tittel Hospitality Invest - Corporate reorganisation, contemplated acquisition of minority interests and bond issue
Oslo - 25 November 2016

Corporate reorganisation, contemplated acquisition of minority 
interests and bond issue 

Over the last years, Hospitality Invest AS ("Hospitality 
Invest") has observed a positive development in all its 
investments within the care segments, and at the same time, the 
group companies have entered into new geographical areas. 

Hospitality Invest strongly believes that the core segments in 
which it is invested will continue to experience a positive 
trend in the Nordic and European countries in the years to come. 
In order to arrange for the continued growth in its current 
investments in the care segments, Hospitality Invest intends to 
consolidate all its holdings within the preschools, care, 
individual & family and integration services segments under its 
fully-owned and newly incorporated subsidiary to be named 
Norlandia Health & Care Group AS (NHCG). 

After the reorganisation, NHCG plans to acquire all outstanding 
minority stakes in Norlandia Care Group AS, Kidsa Drift AS, Hero 
Group AS and Aberia Healthcare AS (all companies collectively 
referred to as "Norlandia"), and Hospitality Invest will 
simultaneously contribute its majority shareholdings in the same 
companies as equity in kind to the NHCG. 

Norlandia will become a leading player in the Nordic private 
care market with more than eight thousand employees and 2016e 
revenues of NOK 5,500 million. The company is expected to 
benefit from significant synergies between its segments and 
vastly improved diversification across geography and product. 

Contemplated bond issue
In relation to the transaction described above, Norlandia is 
contemplating the issuance of a senior secured bond in the 
Nordic bond market with maturity in 2021. The bond issue will be 
equivalent to NOK 1,750 million, and will consist of a NOK 
and/or a SEK tranche. 

The net proceeds from the contemplated bond issue will be used 
- Repay approximately NOK 844 million of current debt, including 
Norlandia Care Group AS' NOK 650 million bond maturing in April 
2018 (OSE: NCG01), which will be called in connection with a 
successful placement of the new bond; and
- Finance the acquisition of shares in Norlandia Care Group AS, 
Kidsa Drift AS, Hero Group AS and Aberia Healthcare AS from 
minority shareholders; and 
- General corporate purposes.

Consolidated overview of the financial position of Norlandia for 
the period from 1Q-3Q16, estimates for 4Q16 and full year 2016 
are included in the attached file. 
ABG Sundal Collier, DNB Markets and Pareto Securities have 
been appointed as Joint Lead Managers of the contemplated bond
