Over recent years, there has been a limited amount of trading in the

Hydro-shares on the LSE. Taking this into account, together with the

cost of maintaining the listing, the decision has been made to de-list

the shares from the Official List and the LSE. Following the

cancellation of the listing, shareholders will still be able to trade

Hydro's shares on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

The application to the UKLA for the removal of the Shares from the

Official List, and to the LSE for the removal of the Hydro-shares from

trading, was made on 27 September 2017, to take effect from 8.00 a.m. on

1 November 2017. The last day of trading in the Hydro-shares on the LSE

is expected to be 31 October 2017.
