Beter Bed Holding NV: Beter Bed Holding strengthens European position with acquisition of Sängjätten in Sweden

* Sängjätten is a Swedish value-for-money retailer of box springs, beds and
bed textiles
* The acquisition of 25 Sängjätten stores gives Beter Bed Holding access to
the Swedish market

Beter Bed Holding announces that it has reached agreement in principle for the
acquisition of Sängjätten. This leading Swedish value-for-money retailer in
box springs, beds and bed textiles has 16 own stores in Sweden, 50 employees
and annual revenue of approximately € 10 million. The company also has a
franchise network with nine stores at its disposal. The acquisition concerns
the most important assets of the company.

Ton Anbeek, Chief Executive Officer
:
'We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Sängjätten. The company fits
perfectly into our European expansion strategy, and gives Beter Bed Holding
better access to the attractive Swedish market and more generally to the
Scandinavian market. With 25 stores at key Swedish retail locations, Beter
Bed Holding will be one of the leading players in the Swedish market. The
acquisition also gives us a platform for further expansion in Sweden in the
coming years.'

The Sängjätten formula corresponds with Beter Bed's business model and retail
format, meaning that operational, commercial and financial synergy can be
achieved. The Sängjätten stores will be gradually converted in the coming
year. The Sängjätten name will be retained.

Beter Bed Holding will finance the acquisition from its own resources. The
acquisition is expected to be finalised in the third quarter of 2016 and is
subject to certain suspensive conditions.
