TAALERI PLC                       STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE                    16 MARCH 2021 at 8:20 EET

Taaleri publishes segments’ comparative financial results for 2020 in accordance with its revised strategy

Taaleri publishes segments’ comparative financial results for 2020 in accordance with its revised strategy, announced on 16 March 2021.

On 10 March 2021 Taaleri announced to sell its wealth management operations to Aktia Bank Plc. In connection with the signing of the sales agreement, Taaleri has classified the related operations as held-for-sale assets and reports them according to IFRS 5 as discontinued operations. In its segment reporting, Taaleri reports only continuing operations, which means that wealth management operations are no longer reported.

With effect from 2021, Taaleri’s continuing operations include two reported segments: Private Asset Management, which is divided to Renewable energy and Other private asset management and Strategic Investments, which includes Garantia Insurance Company Ltd. The Other group is used to present the Group’s non-strategic investments, Taaleri Kapitaali and Group operations not included in the business segments. The table below presents the unaudited segments’ financial results for 2020 excluding the divested wealth management operations.
