Cermaq ASA : Cermaq Chile increases production capacity in region XII

On April 25 Cermaq Chile acquired two licenses for salmon production in region
XII in Chile. The new licenses will increase the production capacity by 4,000
tons per year when fully developed. The licenses were purchased from the
company Centauro S.A. for a consideration of USD 2 million.

"This acquisition represents the first step to implement the strategy of
increasing capacity in region XII in order to balance the production between
the Chilean farming regions. The longer term ambition will be to acquire
additional licenses in the region XII with a total of up to 30,000 tons
capacity per year", says CEO, Jon Hindar.

Before the acquisition Cermaq Chile's current production capacity in region
XII is 10,000 tons per year.
