Share options scheme and allocation of share options 2017

At Data Respons ASA annual general meeting on April 14, 2016 the Board of Directors was authorised to establish a share option scheme and grant options to key personnel employed by the company by a maximum total of 1 440 000 share options under the following terms:

- The share options shall be vested and allocated annually in three equal tranches over a three-year period, and can only be exercised after the three-year period.
- The strike price for one third of the share options granted shall be determined annually equal to market value at the beginning of each vesting period. The strike price will be reduced by the amount paid in dividends per share in the period between determination of market value and exercise date. In the event of any changes in the company's share capital through merger, demerger, repayment to shareholders, etc., the number of share options and/or the strike price will be adjusted in accordance with the generally recognised principles for such adjustments.
- Market value will be determined as the weighted average share price for the Data Respons share the 20 first trading days after the annual general meeting at the beginning of each of the three allocation years, the first time after the annual general meeting on April 14, 2016. The weighted average share price in the period of April 15 to May 13, 2016 was NOK 11.31
- The company may choose to issue new share or purchase own shares to meet the obligation of share options which are exercised.
