Weifa ASA : Distribution agreement in Finland for unique pain products

Weifa has signed a 5-year distribution agreement with the Fysioline Group
(Finland). The agreement covers several of Weifa's most recently launched
products within the pain category, and can be extended to include additional
products. Fysioline will sell, market, and distribute the products on an
exclusive basis in the Finnish market under Weifa's brand names. The first
product will be launched towards the end of 2016.

Fysioline is the leading Finnish wellness and fitness company, and is
currently expanding its pharma division. The company has several
market-leading brands within the pain and joint/muscle categories, sold
through Pharmacies.

"We are very happy to have signed our first collaboration agreement for the
Finnish market. This represents an important first step in building a Nordic
platform for our established Weifa brands. The first two products represent a
combined annual peak-sales potential (3-5 years from launch) for Weifa in the
high single-digit million range (NOK). As announced in June 2015, we aim to
expand our business in the Nordic region through different types of
partnerships and acquisitions. In December 2015, we acquired Asan and Sana
with sales in Norway and Sweden, and now we have made our first move into
Finland", says Kathrine Gamborg Andreassen (CEO Weifa).
