VVO Group plc: VVO Group to acquire seven properties currently occupied by Metropolia University of Applied Sciences

VVO GROUP PLC

STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE
7 November, 2016 at 12.30 EET

VVO Group to acquire seven properties currently occupied by Metropolia
University of Applied Sciences

VVO Group's VVO Kodit Oy has today signed a preliminary agreement on the
purchase of properties at Onnentie 18, Sofianlehdonkatu 5, Tukholmankatu 10,
Agricolankatu 1-3, Albertinkatu 40-42, Abrahaminkatu 1-3 and Bulevardi 29-31
with the City of Helsinki and Merasco Real Estate Ltd Oy.

Under the terms of the preliminary agreement, the fixed sales price is set at
EUR 80.9 million, as determined by a valuation based on existing building
rights to develop further commercial provision. The sales price may be
adjusted in the event that the building rights are amended following a
revision of the local plan as applied for by the purchaser. The purchase
remains contingent upon the approval of VVO Group plc's Board of Directors.
The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.

It is planned to convert the majority of properties to Lumo residential
apartments. Currently, development equivalent to 75,000 m² is permitted
within the sites and, according to VVO Group, the clear majority of this is
suitable for residential purposes. In the future, VVO Group will sell any
sites found unsuitable for their needs. VVO will decide whether to invest in
changing the use of the properties on a case-by-case basis.

The purchase will deliver new growth in the Helsinki region in line with VVO
Group's strategy, and the new properties will make it easier for people to
relocate in pursuit of employment in urbanising Finland.
