ADDvise Group AB: ADDvise signs agreement to acquire LabRum AB

• ADDvise Group AB (publ) ("ADDvise") has entered into an agreement to acquire
LabRum AB ("LabRum") with the planned admission on March 1st, 2016 (the
"Acquisition").

• The acquisition also includes the shares in the subsidiaries LabRum AS (100
percent), LabRum Klimat Oy (80 percent) and Kinda Fastighets AB (20 percent),
all together ("LabRum").

• The purchase price amounts to 34.5 million SEK, with a possible earn-out
estimated to 11.5 million SEK.

• The Fiscal year 2014/2015 LabRum had a turnover of 72.5 million SEK and
generated an EBITDA of 7.4 million SEK.

• LabRum is one of Sweden's leading companies within laboratory furniture,
safety ventilation and laboratory equipment for both the public and private
sector.

• ADDvise and LabRum’s businesses complement each other well and a number of
positive synergies are expected from the acquisition.

Motives for the acquisition
The acquisition of LabRum is another step in the growth strategy adopted by
the Board of ADDvise in early 2010. LabRum contributes to a significant
increase in ADDvise turnover and operating profit. The acquisition is
strategically important for the business area Lab and will expand the range
of products, strengthen the competence in laboratory furniture, safety
ventilation and laboratory equipment as well as strengthening its presence in
the Nordic market. The acquisition creates Scandinavia’s leading group in
laboratory furniture and large industrial as well as financial synergies are
expected to be achieved.

Short about LabRum
LabRum is one of the oldest companies within laboratory furniture, safety
ventilation and laboratory equipment. The customers include both private
companies and the public sector in the Nordic region. Some of the customers
are the Karolinska Institute, the Swedish Police Authority, a number of
universities and Bombardier Transportation. LabRum currently has about 20
employees. The Fiscal year 2014/2015 LabRum had a turnover of 72.5 million
SEK and generated an EBITDA of 7.4 million SEK.

Pro forma
If LabRum is consolidated on pro forma basis from October 1st, 2014 -
September 30th, 2015, ADDvise pro forma turnover would amount to 224.3
(151.8) MSEK with an EBITDA of 14.7 (7.3) MSEK. This represents an increase
of 48 percent in turnover and 100 percent in EBITDA1.

Total consideration
The total purchase price of approximately 46.0 million SEK will be distributed
as follows:

• 34.5 million SEK is paid on the admission date

• Approximately 11.5 million SEK is paid in earn-out consideration

• The earn-out consideration is calculated as 116 percent of LabRum’s reported
EBITDA for the period May 1st, 2015 - April 30th, 2016 Admission is planned
for March 1st, 2016.
