Wolters Kluwer NV: Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory Solutions in Agreement to Divest 55% Stake in Russian Entity

September 3, 2015 - Wolters Kluwer Legal&Regulatory Solutions has signed an
agreement to sell its 55% interest in Wolters Kluwer Russia Publishing
Holding to the company's minority shareholders. This holding company owns
100% of the Russian legal and regulatory business, MCFR.

The divestment, which is subject to closing conditions and is expected to
close in the near term, has been precipitated by impending limits on foreign
ownership in Russian media companies.

In 2014, the Russian business was fully consolidated in the Wolters Kluwer
accounts and had revenues of €39 million. The divestment is expected to
result in a one-time net loss of approximately €18 million, of which the
majority is foreign exchange related. Terms of the agreement have not been
disclosed.
