Mandatory Offer Restrictions

The distribution of the Mandatory Offer Document and the making of the Mandatory Offer may in certain jurisdictions ("Restricted Jurisdictions") be restricted by law. Therefore, persons obtaining the Mandatory Offer Document or into whose possession the Mandatory Offer Document otherwise comes, are required to, and should inform themselves of and observe, all such restrictions. The Offeror and the Receiving Agent do not accept or assume any responsibility or liability for any violation by any person whomsoever of any such restriction.

The Mandatory Offer Document is not directed to persons whose participation in the Mandatory Offer requires that further offer documents are issued or that registration or other measures are taken, other than those required under Norwegian law, provided, however, that the Mandatory Offer is made to Magseis Fairfield shareholders resident in the United States, see further below. No document or materials relating to the Mandatory Offer may be distributed in or into any jurisdiction where such distribution or offering requires any of the aforementioned measures to be taken or would be in conflict with any law or regulation of such a jurisdiction. In the event of such distribution or offering still being made, an Acceptance Form sent from such a country may be disregarded.

The Mandatory Offer Document does not represent an offer to acquire or obtain securities other than Magseis Fairfield shares. The Mandatory Offer is not open to any Magseis Fairfield shareholder in any jurisdiction in which it is unlawful for any person to receive or accept the Mandatory Offer. No action has been taken to permit the distribution of the Mandatory Offer in any jurisdiction where action would be required for such purposes (except Norway).

The Mandatory Offer is not being made and will not be made, directly or indirectly, in or into the Restricted Jurisdictions. The Mandatory Offer Document, and any and all materials related thereto, should not be sent or otherwise distributed in or into the Restricted Jurisdictions, and the Mandatory Offer cannot be accepted by any such use, means or instrumentality, in or from within Restricted Jurisdictions.

Any purported acceptance of the Mandatory Offer resulting directly or indirectly from a violation of these restrictions will be invalid.

Notice to U.S. Investors

The Mandatory Offer is being made for securities of a Norwegian company, and Magseis Fairfield Shareholders in the United States should be aware that the Mandatory Offer Document and any other documents relating to the Mandatory Offer have been or will be prepared in accordance with Norwegian law, format and style, all of which differ from those in the United States. All financial information that is included in the Mandatory Offer Document, or any other documents relating to the Mandatory Offer, have been or will be prepared in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the EU (the "IFRS") and may not be comparable to financial statements of companies in the United States or other companies whose financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") nor any U.S. state securities commission has approved or disapproved the Mandatory Offer or passed any comment upon the adequacy or completeness of the Mandatory Offer Document. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States. Nothing in the Mandatory Offer Document shall be deemed an acknowledgement that any SEC filing is required or that an offer requiring registration under the U.S. Securities Act may ever occur in connection with the Mandatory Offer. The Mandatory Offer will be made in the United States pursuant to Section 14(e) of, and Regulation 14E under, the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “U.S. Exchange Act”), and otherwise in accordance with the requirements of Norwegian law. Accordingly, the Mandatory Offer will be subject to disclosure and other procedural requirements, including with respect to withdrawal rights that are different from those applicable under United States domestic tender offer procedures and law, as described elsewhere in the Mandatory Offer Document.
