Sampo´s offer not influenced by tax decision

The basis of the rejection is that too high a proportion of cash was included in the total offer.

The decision is not unexpected, and Sampo has in its offer document of 8 June 2001 communicated its doubt on whether the Norwegian Ministry of Finance would grant such a tax exemption to the Storebrand shareholders.

The decision has no impact on Sampo's offer concerning Storebrand, or on the offer period. The extended offer period terminates on 28 September 2001 at 5 p.m. Norwegian time.
