Advania: Advania declares the offer to the shareholders of Caperio Holding unconditional and extends the acceptance period

The Offer is not being made, and this press release may not be
distributed, directly or indirectly, in or into, nor will any tender
of shares be accepted from or on behalf of holders in, Australia,
Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa or the United
States or any other jurisdiction in which the making of the Offer,
the distribution of this press release or the acceptance of any
tender of shares would contravene applicable laws or regulations or
require further offer documents, filings or other measures in
addition to those required under Swedish law.

Advania Holding AB ("Advania"), a company indirectly owned by Advania
Invest AB ("Advania Invest"), announced on 27 April 2017 a
recommended cash offer to the shareholders of Caperio Holding AB
(publ) ("Caperio") (the "Offer"). The last day to accept the Offer
was on 29 May 2017. Advania declares today that:

· The Offer has been accepted to such an extent that Advania after
completion of the Offer will become the owner of approximately 94.2
per cent of outstanding shares and votes in Caperio.

· Advania has decided to complete the Offer and all conditions for
the Offer are therefore satisfied, including the condition regarding
a 90 per cent acceptance level.

· Advania extends the acceptance period for the Offer up to and
including 12 June 2017 to allow remaining shareholders to accept the
Offer.

At the time of the announcement of the Offer, neither Advania nor
Advania Invest owned or controlled any shares in Caperio. As of 29
May 2017, 4,530,100 shares have been tendered in the Offer.
Accordingly, after the completion of the Offer, Advania will own
4,530,100 shares in Caperio, representing approximately 94.2 per cent
of the shares and votes in Caperio.[1] (http://#_ftn1)

Gestur G. Gestsson, President, Advania:
- We are very pleased with the wide support from Caperio's
shareholders and that we are able to complete the acquisition as
planned. The merger of the two companies is in line with our growth
strategy, to grow both organically and through acquisitions, and
allows us to improve our offer to both existing and new customers.
The acquisition of Caperio is an important milestone in Advania's
development and strengthens our brand as well as our position in the
market.

Mikael Noaksson, CEO Advania Sweden:
- We are now expanding Advania's offer as well as strengthening our
position as one of the leading IT companies in the Nordic region. The
bid being accepted by the shareholders is an important milestone, but
it still remains an exciting and diligent work to integrate the new
company and perform even better together. There are many synergies to
exploit, as we will now have more employees with broader expertise
and a more comprehensive customer base. I am convinced that the
merger will create added value for both employees, customers and
partners.

To allow for the remaining shareholders to accept the Offer, Advania
extends the acceptance period up to and including 12 June 2017 at
17.00 (CEST). Settlement for shares already tendered in the Offer is
expected to take place on or around 2 June 2017. Settlement for
shares tendered during the extended acceptance period is expected to
take place on or around 16 June 2017. Advania may acquire additional
shares in Caperio in the market during the extended acceptance
period.

Advania intends to initiate a compulsory acquisition procedure under
the Swedish Companies Act to acquire all shares not tendered in the
Offer. In connection therewith, Advania intends to promote a
delisting of the shares of Caperio from Nasdaq First North.

Since the Offer is now unconditional, the shareholders who have
accepted the Offer, or will accept the Offer, have no right to
withdraw acceptances.
