Ferratum Oyj contemplating conversion into SE

Helsinki, 29 October 2020 - Ferratum Oyj (ISIN: FI4000106299, WKN: A1W9NS) ("Ferratum" or "the Group") contemplates conversion into a European Company and considers different options for restructuring the governance structure of the Group.

The Board of Directors of Ferratum have resolved to investigate possibilities to convert Ferratum into a European Company, Societas Europaea (SE) to emphasize the international reach of the Group's operations and strengthen Ferratum's European identity. The aim is to make the Group structure more transparent and leaner from governance perspective.

The investigation will also cover strategic structural considerations, one of the options being an analysis on possibilities to subsequently relocate the company's headquarters to another EEA jurisdiction in accordance with the Finnish Act on European Company (742/2004) and the Council Regulation N:o 2157/2001 on the Statute for a European company (SE).

The final decision on SE conversion is subject to final approval by the Board of Directors and the shareholders.

With this release, Ferratum Oyj publishes inside information.
