Scanship Holding ASA: SCANSHIP HOLDING ASA - STABILISATION NOTICE

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

SCANSHIP HOLDING ASA - STABILISATION NOTICE

Bærum, 11 April 2014. Reference is made to stock exchange notice of 8 April
2014, in which Scanship Holding ASA (the "Company", ticker code SSHIP)
announced the successful completion of its initial public offering of shares
(the "Offering").

Fondsfinans AS (the "Manager") may engage in stabilisation activities of the
shares of the Company from and including today 11 April 2014 to and including
11 May 2014 (the "Stabilisation Period"). Any such stabilisation transactions
will be aimed at supporting the market price of the shares of the Company.

In connection with the Offering, the Manager has over-allotted 531,569 shares
in the Company, which equals approximately 2.1% of the number of shares sold
in the Offering before over-allotments. In order to permit the delivery in
respect of over-allotments made, the Manager borrowed a number of shares from
the existing shareholders of the Company equal to the number of the
over-allotted shares.

Further, the Manager has been granted a greenshoe option (the "Greenshoe
Option") which entitles the Manager, to subscribe for up to 531,569 new
shares to be issued by the Company at a price per share equal to the offer
price in the Offering of NOK 3.20 per share (the "Offer Price"). The
Greenshoe Option may be exercised at the end of the Stabilisation Period. The
Manager may close out the short position created by over-allotting shares by
buying shares in the open market through stabilisation activities and/or by
exercising the Greenshoe Option.

The Manager (or persons acting on behalf of the Manager) may effect
transactions that stabilise or maintain the price of the shares of the
Company at a level higher than that which might otherwise prevail, by buying
shares in the Company or associated instruments in the open market at prices
equal to or lower than (but not above) the Offer Price. However, there is no
obligation on the Manager (or any person acting on behalf of the Manager) to
do so. Moreover, there is no assurance that the Manager (or persons acting on
behalf of the Manager) will undertake stabilisation activities. If
stabilisation activities are undertaken they may be stopped at any time, and
must be brought to an end upon or before expiry of the Stabilisation Period.

Within one week after the end of the Stabilisation Period, the Manager will
publish a statement through Oslo Børs' information system under the Company's
ticker with information as to whether or not any stabilisation activities
have been undertaken, including the date at which stabilisation started, the
date at which stabilisation last occurred, and the price range within which
stabilisation was carried out for each of the dates during which
stabilisation transactions were carried out.

Any stabilisation activities will be conducted in accordance with section 3-12
of the Norwegian Securities Trading Act and Commission Regulation (EC) No.
2273/2003 implementing Directive 2003/6/EC of the European Parliament and of
the Council as regards exemptions for buy-back programmes and stabilisation
of financial instruments.

For further details see the prospectus dated 25 March 2014 issued by the
Company in connection with the Offering and the listing of its shares on Oslo
Axess. For further queries, please contact:
