INDIRECTLY, IN AUSTRALIA, CANADA, JAPAN OR THE UNITED STATES

Oslo, Norway, 26 May 2015

Weifa ASA (OSE: WEIFA), reference is made to the stock exchange announcement
by Weifa ASA ("Weifa") on 15 May 2015 and 20 April 2015 regarding the
contemplated sale of Weifa's B2B business and tablet production to the newly
established company Vistin Pharma AS, and the contemplated equity issue (the
"Offering") in Vistin Pharma ASA (the "Company" or "Vistin Pharma").

The Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway has approved a prospectus
prepared by the Company covering the following:

Offering and listing of 15,554,935 New Shares with tradable subscription
rights for existing shareholders of Weifa as per the end of 19 May 2015
("Rights Offering").

Offering and listing of 1,500,000 Employee Offer Shares directed towards the
executive management, Board of Directors and employees of the Company
("Employee Offering").

The Offering

The Offering consists of two tranches;

* 15,554,935 new shares at NOK 10.00 per new share (the "New Shares") are
directed towards the shareholders of Weifa as of 19 May 2015 (the "Rights
Offering"), who are not resident in a jurisdiction where such offering
would be unlawful or would (in jurisdictions other than Norway) require any
prospectus filing, registration or similar action (the "Eligible
Shareholders"); and
* 1,500,000 new shares at NOK 10.00 per new share (the "Employee Offer
Shares") are directed towards the Company's full-time employees, executive
management and Board of Directors (the "Employee Offering").

The Offering is fully guaranteed primarily by large existing shareholders of
Weifa. The underwriters will receive a guarantee commission of 2% of their
guaranteed amount, subject to completion of the Offering. Each Underwriter's
obligation is subject to approval of the listing of the Company's shares on
Oslo Axess by the board of directors of Oslo Børs. For further information
regarding the underwriter agreement, please see section 6.1.3 "The
Underwriting and the Underwriting Syndicate" in the Prospectus.

The Rights Offering

The Rights Offering comprises an offering of 15,554,935 New Shares at a
subscription price of NOK 10.00, corresponding to gross proceeds of
approximately NOK 155 million. The Rights Offering will be directed towards
the shareholders of Weifa as of close of the Oslo Stock Exchange on 19 May
2015, as registered in the Norwegian Central Security Depository (VPS) on 21
May 2015 ("Record Date") who are not resident in a jurisdiction where such
offering would be unlawful, or for jurisdictions other than Norway, would
require any filing, registration or similar action. Regarding further
restrictions in respect of who may be allocated or permitted to acquire or
exercise Subscription Rights/subscribe for New Shares, reference is made to
section 6.2.4 "Subscription Rights" and Section 16 "Selling and
Transfer Restrictions" in the Prospectus.

Subscription Period:

From and including 26 May 2015 to 4 June at 16:30 CET.

Subscription Price:

The subscription price in the Rights Offering is NOK 10.00 per New Share.

Subscription Rights:

Each Eligible Shareholder will be granted one (1) Subscription Right for every
102 Weifa ASA shares owned as of the Record Date. One Subscription Right
will, subject to applicable securities law, give the holder the right to
subscribe for and be allocated one New Share in the Company in the Rights
Offering. Oversubscription is allowed. Subscription without Subscription
Rights is not permitted.

The Subscription Rights will be tradable and listed on Oslo Axess with ticker
code "VISTIN T". The trading period for the Subscription Rights is from and
including 26 May 2015 to 2 June 2015 at 16:30 CET.

The Subscription Rights are expected to have an economical value. Please note
that Subscription Rights that are not used to subscribe for New Shares before
the end of the Subscription Period or sold before 16:30 CET on 2 June 2015
will lapse without compensation and consequently be of no value.

Listing of Vistin Pharma on Oslo Axess

Vistin Pharma ASA applied for admission to trading of its Shares on Oslo Axess
on 23 April 2015 and the listing application will be considered by the board
of directors of the Oslo Stock Exchange on 26 May 2015. Listing of the

required by the Oslo Axess Listing Rules, section 2.4.1;
* That the Company raises at least NOK 170 million in new equity through the
contemplated Offering; and
* Completes the Sale and Offering as planned

There is no guarantee that the Company will fulfill the above mentioned
conditions and that the Oslo Stock Exchange approves the Company's listing
application. Trading in the Subscription Rights is on the investors own risk,
and the investors will not be reimbursed for costs incurred when acquiring
Subscription Rights in the event that the Company does not complete the
Offering and the Shares are not listed on Oslo Axess.
