Veidekke ASA: Veidekke acquires Leif Grimsrud AS

Veidekke Entreprenør AS has entered into a letter of intent to acquire 80% of
the shares in the civil engineering contractor Leif Grimsrud AS in Halden and
its subsidiaries Leif Grimsrud Entreprenad AB and Øst AS. "Veidekke would
like to grow in the civil engineering market, and Grimsrud will strengthen
our local and regional operations in the central region of Eastern Norway",
says Managing Director Dag Andresen of Veidekke Entreprenør.

Grimsrud has 230 employees in Østfold and 30 in Strømstad, and revenues
totalled NOK 920 million in 2014. Grimsrud carries out local building
projects in Halden and construction contracts in Østfold, Akershus and
Bohuslän.

"Grimsrud is a solid, well-run contractor that has delivered good long-term
results. They have a high level of expertise in engineering design, planning
and management with their own employees and machinery. In addition, they have
a similar corporate culture and values that will fit in very well with
Veidekke. We look forward to welcoming their capable skilled workers and
staff to our team", says Managing Director Dag Andresen of Veidekke
Entreprenør.

It is expected that the final agreement will be signed in November, subject to
approval by the Competition Authority.
