Fortum has today concluded the sale of its 50% ownership in the district heating
company Fortum Oslo Varme AS in Norway to a consortium of institutional
investors of Hafslund Eco, Infranode and HitecVision. The signing of the
transaction was announced on 22 March 2022.

The total consideration of the sale amounts to approximately EUR 1 billion on a
cash and debt free basis and as part of the transaction, Fortum will
deconsolidate a related EUR 0.2 billion loan from the City of Oslo. The loan was
recognised as liabilities related to assets held for sale in Fortum’s first
quarter interim report of 2022. Fortum will record a tax-exempt capital gain of
approximately EUR 0.6 billion in the City Solutions segment’s second-quarter
2022 results.

Over the past years, Fortum has divested several of its heating and cooling
businesses. In 2020, Fortum divested its district heating businesses in Joensuu
and Järvenpää in Finland, and in 2021, Fortum sold its district heating
businesses in the Baltics and its 50% ownership in Stockholm Exergi in Sweden.
