Orkla ASA: Sapa (joint venture) - Announcement of results for the third quarter 2016

· Increased value-add margins

· Improved cost position
· Continued growth in Underlying EBIT

Underlying EBIT for Sapa increased compared to the same quarter of the
previous year driven by higher value-add margins and positive effects from
continuous improvements. The improvements were partly offset by slightly
reduced sales volumes, mainly in the US.

Compared to the same period last year, market demand increased by 0.7% in
North America and 2.1% in Europe. In North America, building and construction
activity and automotive demand contributed positively, while the
transportation segment experienced slower demand. In Europe there were
positive developments in automotive and transportation and a mixed picture in
building and construction.

Underlying EBIT year-to-date increased compared to last year, driven by the
same main factors as for the third quarter.

Going forward, a continued moderate market growth is expected in Europe, while
certain market segments in North America show indications of softening. In
both North America and Europe, aluminium substitution in the automotive
industry is contributing positively.
