The shareholders approved the USD 51 million reduction of the share premium account, which remains subject to regulatory approval by the District Court of Limassol, Cyprus. The Company will now proceed with the application for regulatory approval, the outcome of which is expected to be known during Q1 2021. Payment of the share premium reduction is expected to be to the holders of the ordinary shares of the Company registered in the Registry of the Euronext Growth Stock Exchange in Norway on the fifth trading day following the date of regulatory confirmation. The ex-date will be four trading days after the approval. Payment will be made in Norwegian Krone within ten banking days from such confirmation.
