CapMan exits Samsa to Attendo

Funds managed by CapMan have agreed to sell their holdings in Sweden-based
Samsa AB to the leading Nordic care company Attendo. The transaction is
expected to close on 1 July 2016.

"We have exceeded our expectations for this investment. During CapMan's
ownership, Samsa has grown rapidly both organically and through acquisitions.
Samsa is in excellent shape through its long-term investments in quality and
competence improvements among the personnel. Samsa is a role model and there
are numerous opportunities for the new owner to continue developing the
operations," says Johan Bennarsten, Chairman of the Board of Samsa and
advisor of the CapMan Life Science IV fund.

Samsa and its subsidiaries provide treatment, residential care and educational
services for young individuals with complex mental or behavioural problems as
well as specialised supported living services for adults in the Mälardalen
region in Sweden. The CapMan Life Science IV fund, in which also CapMan is a
significant investor, invested in Samsa in 2009.

The exit has a significant result and cash flow impact to CapMan Plc

The transaction generates approx. €5.8 million in cash flow to CapMan Plc from
CapMan's own fund investments and contributes approx. €1.6 million to CapMan
Plc's 2016 result through additional positive changes in the fair value of
CapMan's own fund investments that have not yet been booked during the course
of the investment.

"The exit from Samsa builds on CapMan's positive development this year. Our
result development and cash flow are favourable. One measure of our success
as owners is whether our portfolio companies interest trade buyers. We have
been a frontrunner in the care sector in both Finland and Sweden," comments
Heikki Westerlund, CEO of CapMan Plc.
