Saint-Gobain IN EXCLUSIVE TALKS TO

STRENGTHEN ITS INSULATION BUSINESS IN the NORDICs

Saint-Gobain has entered into exclusive talks with the founding families and shareholders of GLAVA A/S to buy their shares, with the support of the company's management. Prior to this operation, Saint-Gobain already owned 17.08% of the capital of Glava, which has manufactured products under an Isover license since 1960.

A leading player on the insulation market in Norway, Glava reported sales of over EUR140 million in 2016. The company has two glass wool plants, at Askim, 55km from Oslo, and at Stjørdal near Trondheim. It also has workshops producing expanded polystyrene and ceilings. Glava supplies a comprehensive range of insulating products and accessories to its customers.

This acquisition - subject to certain conditions including the approval of the Norwegian anti-trust authorities - will allow Saint-Gobain to reinforce its position in the Nordics in line with its strategy.
