Hiddn Solutions ASA: Hiddn Solutions ASA - Commencement of subscription period in Rights Issue

NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART,
DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA,
CANADA OR JAPAN, OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE,
PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL.

Reference is made to previous stock exchange announcements from Hiddn
Solutions ASA (the "Company"), the latest on 23 January 2017,
regarding a NOK 20-60 million rights issue (the "Rights Issue") and
the stock exchange announcement earlier today regarding the approval
of a prospectus (the "Prospectus").

The Rights Issue comprises 20,761,245 new shares in the Company, each
with a nominal value of NOK 0.34, (the "Offer Shares") offered at a
subscription price of NOK 2.89 (the "Subscription Price"), thereby
raising gross proceeds of up to approximately NOK 60 million.

Existing shareholders of the Company as of 24 January 2017, as
registered in the Norwegian Central Securities Depository (the "VPS")
on 26 January 2017 (the "Record Date") (the "Existing Shareholders")
will be granted free of charge transferable subscription rights (the
"Subscription Rights"). Each Existing Shareholder will be allocated
0.54409 Subscription Rights for each share as registered held in the
Company on the Record Date. The Subscription Rights granted to each
Existing Shareholder will be rounded down to the nearest whole
Subscription Right. Subject to applicable law in the relevant
jurisdiction of each Existing Shareholder, each of the Subscription
Rights provide preferential rights to subscribe for and be allocated
one (1) Offer Share at the Subscription Price.

The subscription period for the Rights Issue will commence today on 27
January 2017 and expire at 16:30 (CET) on 10 February 2017 (the
"Subscription Period").

The Subscription Rights will be listed and be tradable on Oslo Børs
from today 27 January 2017 to and including 16:30 (CET) on 8 February
2017 under ticker code "HIDDN T" (the "Trading Period"). The
Subscription Rights will have economic value if the Company's shares
are traded above the Subscription Price during the Subscription
Period.

Subscription Rights that are not sold before the end of the Trading
Period (i.e. before 8 February 2017 at 16:30 (CET) or that are not
used to subscribe for Offer Shares before the end of the Subscription
Period (i.e. before 10 February 2017 at 16:30 (CET)) will have no
value and will lapse without any compensation to the holder. Holders
of Subscription Rights should note that subscription for Offer Shares
must be made in accordance with the procedures set out in the
Prospectus and that holding of Subscription Rights in itself do not
represent a subscription for Offer Shares.

The Rights Issue is underwritten by an underwriting consortium that
has agreed to secure subscriptions for up to NOK 20 million in the
Rights Issue (the "Underwriting"). The Underwriting is unconditional
and irrevocable. The underwriting consortium consists of existing
shareholders in the Company. Each underwriter is liable on a pro rata
basis, limited to their respective underwritten amount as set out in
section 14.19 "The Underwriting" of the Prospectus. The Company shall
pay a fee to the underwriters equal to 6% of the underwritten amount
of NOK 20 million. Please see section 14.19 "The Underwriting" of the
Prospectus for further information about the Underwriting and the
underwriting consortium. The underwriters are guaranteed an
allocation of Offer Shares subscribed for in the Rights Issue in an
amount of up to NOK 10 million.

In the event the Rights Issue is fully subscribed based on
Subscription Rights, the Company's extraordinary general meeting on
13 January 2017 granted the Company's board with an authorization to
issue additional 5,190,311 Offer Shares to be directed to the
underwriters, and the Company's employees, management and board
members on the same terms as in the Rights Issue, which in aggregate
will result in total gross proceeds of up to approximately NOK 75
million. Please note that no Subscription Rights have been issued on
the basis of these additional 5,190,311 Offer Shares.

The Subscription Rights and the Offer Shares are offered only in those
jurisdiction in which, and only to those persons to whom, offers and
sales of the Offer Shares (pursuant to the exercise of Subscription
Rights or otherwise) may lawfully be made.

Subject to timely payment of the entire subscription amount in the
Rights Issue, it is expected that the Offer Shares will be issued and
delivered to the subscribers to whom they are allocated on or about
20 February 2017. The Offer Shares allocated in the Rights Issue are
expected to be tradable on Oslo Børs from and including the same
date.

For complete information about the Rights Issue and the risk factors
concerning the Company and the shares, please see the Prospectus, in
particular section 2 "Risk Factors" and Section 14 "The Rights
Issue". For a description of restrictions in respect of subscription
of Offer Shares and trading and/or exercising Subscription Rights,
see section 16 "Selling and transfer restrictions" of the Prospectus.

A letter setting out information about the Rights Issue, including the
number of Subscription Rights granted, will be distributed to each
Existing Shareholder.

Arctic Securities AS and DNB Markets, a part of DNB Bank ASA are
engaged as joint lead managers and Sparebank 1 SR-Bank ASA, Markets
is acting as Selling Agent in connection with the Rights Issue.

Aabø-Evensen & Co Advokatfirma AS is acting as legal advisor to the
Company in connection with the Rights Issue.
