Össur Hf: Conversion and trading of Össur shares following new rules on foreign exchange in Iceland

Announcement from Össur hf. no. 24/2017

Reykjavik, 15 March 2017

Reference is made to the Company's Announcement no. 22/2010 regarding certain restrictions on the conversion and transfer of Össur shares between the Icelandic market and the Danish market, as well as the trading of Össur shares by Icelandic investors on the Danish market, due to capital controls in Iceland.

Today Össur received a confirmation from the Central Bank of Iceland that from 14 March 2017, when the Icelandic Rules on Foreign Exchange No. 200/2017 came into effect, there are no longer any restrictions on converting and transferring Össur shares from the Icelandic market to the Danish market and vice versa. Icelandic investors can now trade Össur shares on the Danish market without restrictions, but purchases are subject to notification to the Central Bank of Iceland.
