The Board of Directors of Ahlsell AB has resolved to establish a medium term note programme (the "MTN Programme") with a framework amount of MSEK 5,000. For this purpose, Ahlsell has prepared a base prospectus, which today has been approved by and registered with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finansinspektionen).

“The main purpose of the programme is to refinance parts of existing loans and to diversify the debt structure”, says Kennet Göransson, CFO.

The base prospectus, which is available at Ahlsell’s website; www.ahlsell.com and on the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority's website, www.finansinspektionen.se is valid for a period of 12 months from the date of its approval. SEB is arranger of the MTN Programme and also acting as issuing agent together with DNB Bank ASA, filial Sverige, Danske Bank A/S, Danmark, Sverige Filial and Nordea Bank AB (publ).

Ahlsell has mandated SEB and DNB to arrange meetings with bond investors in Stockholm and Helsinki on May 23. Subject to market conditions, a SEK denominated senior unsecured capital markets transaction will follow.
