Ratos: Placement of shares in Inwido to be evaluated

This information is disclosed in accordance with the Securities Markets Act,
the Financial Instruments Trading Act or demands made in the exchange rules.
Not for release, distribution or publication, directly or indirectly, in or
to the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, Canada or Japan.

Ratos has appointed Carnegie and Handelsbanken Capital Markets to evaluate the
conditions for a placement of shares in Inwido AB (publ). Over the past ten
years, Inwido has developed into Europe's leading window and door
manufacturer and the company was listed in September 2014.

Ratos has appointed Carnegie and Handelsbanken Capital Markets as joint
bookrunners to evaluate the conditions for a placement of shares in Inwido AB
(publ). Ratos currently owns 18,124,796 shares, corresponding to 31.3% of the
capital and votes in Inwido.

If a transaction is carried out, the sale will take place and the price of the
shares will be determined through an accelerated bookbuilding process to a
limited number of Nordic and international institutional investors. The
bookbuilding period will start with immediate effect and may be closed at
short notice.

Susanna Campbell, CEO of Ratos, comments: "Our business model is based on
owning and developing primarily unlisted Nordic companies and also on
divesting these companies at some point. During our ownership period, Inwido
has undergone an enormous growth journey and following the successful IPO
last autumn, Inwido has continued to show strong earnings development and a
positive performance on the stock exchange. We are now examining the
possibility of reducing our ownership in Inwido, which is in line with
Ratos's strategy."
