Tryg A/S announces registration of new shares


Tryg A/S ("Tryg" or the "Company") today announces that the offering (the "Offering") of 352,505,989 new shares (the "New Shares") pursuant to the prospectus dated 1 March 2021 (the "Prospectus") has been registered with the Danish Business Authority and that consequently, the Offering has been completed and the Company's registered share capital is nominally DKK 3,273,269,900 divided into 654,653,980 shares with a nominal value of DKK 5 each.

Defined terms used in this announcement shall, unless otherwise defined herein, have the same meanings as set out in the Prospectus.

The gross proceeds of the Offering will total DKK 37,013,128,845 and the net proceeds (gross proceeds after deduction of estimated expenses payable by Tryg) are expected to total approximately DKK 36.463 billion.

Admission to trading and official listing of the New Shares under the existing ISIN code, DK0060636678, on Nasdaq Copenhagen is expected to take place on 29 March 2021. As soon as possible thereafter, the interim ISIN code of the Interim Shares, DK0061534534, will be merged with the ISIN code of the Existing Shares, DK0060636678, and the Interim Shares will automatically be converted into New Shares, expected to take place on 30 March 2021.

Until such merger has been completed, the liquidity and market price of the Interim Shares under the interim ISIN code may be substantially different from the liquidity and market price of the Existing Shares under the existing ISIN code.

The Existing Shares are admitted to trading and official listing on Nasdaq Copenhagen under the symbol "TRYG". The Interim Shares have been admitted to trading and official listing on Nasdaq Copenhagen under the symbol "TRYG N".

The Company's articles of association have been updated to reflect the capital increase and are available at the Company's website www.tryg.com.

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended ("MiFID II"); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing MiFID II; and (c) local implementing measures (together, the "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the securities that are the subject of the Offering have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the Preemptive Rights, the Interim Shares and the New Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in MiFID II; and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by MiFID II (the "Target Market Assessment"). Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Preemptive Rights and the Shares may decline and shareholders and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Preemptive Rights and the Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Preemptive Rights and the Shares is compatible only with shareholders and investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Offering. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, the Managers will only procure investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties (except for a public offering to shareholders and investors in Denmark, Greenland, Norway and Sweden conducted pursuant to the Prospectus that has been approved by and registered with the DFSA). For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of MiFID II; or (b) a recommendation to any investor or shareholder in Tryg or group of investors or shareholders in Tryg to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to, the Preemptive Rights, the Interim Shares and the New Shares. Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own target market assessment in respect of the Preemptive Rights, the Interim Shares and the New Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.
