World News: . []

TECHNOPOLIS PLC           STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE          October 12, 2018 at 4:35 p.m. EEST Kildare Nordic Acquisitions S.à r.l announced today that it will complete the public tender offer for all the issued and outstanding shares in Technopolis Plc. As a result, Technopolis will incur costs in relation to the tender offer in the form of, among others, advisory fees. A substantial part of the advisory fees are conditional upon completion of the tender offer. The costs and fees related to the tender offer are estimated to be approximately EUR 5.9 million euros, in total. Due to these costs, Technopolis lowers its estimate on the full-year 2018 profitability. The earlier guidance on Group net sales remains intact.

Technopolis estimates that the Group net sales in 2018 will be at the same level as it was in 2017. The company expects the Group EBITDA to be below the 2017 EBITDA.

The estimates take into account the divestiture of operations in Jyväskylä, Finland in late 2017, as well as the costs related to the voluntary public tender offer by Kildare Nordic Acquisitions S.à r.l. The negative effects of the Jyväskylä divestitures on Group Net sales and EBITDA, on an annual level, are approximately EUR 14.5 million and EUR 7.2 million, respectively. The costs and fees related to the tender offer are estimated to be approximately EUR 5.9 million euros, in total.
