As of 31. December 2022 Inin Group had no interest-bearing debt and
approximately NOK 135 million in available liquidity, including a NOK 50 million
vendor note from the sale of Simplifai last year. The company had an
order-backlog of NOK 369 million.

held on the 9th of March.


Inin Group has received the offer regarding the potential sale of Elop
Technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of Inin Group, to an undisclosed entity.
The potential transaction could reinforce Elop Technology`s international
expansion and create synergies within a company that intends to pursue a process
of a public listing on NASDAQ. 

The received proposal value Elop Technology at USD 30 million. The acquisition
amount will, if accepted, be settled in a 100{38557cf0372cd7f85c91e7e33cff125558f1277b36a8edbab0100de866181896} share swap. The transaction is

to evaluate the proposal before they give their recommendation or acceptance to
the proposal.

The offer contains certain guarantees that secures intellectual property right
protection for Elop Technology's ultrasound scanner technology if the planned
listing does not go ahead. The listing must take place within 18 months after
closing of the transaction.

"The offer is for Elop Technology as a standalone business and do not affect any
of our other business units. Elop Technology have a unique technology, but as we
have announced earlier, we have looked for a partner or co-owner since it is
risk and will take time before the company will become profitable. The
management team in Elop Technology has been a natural and active part in the
process and in the discussions with the potential buyers. The potential
transaction represents strong interest in Elop Technology`s IP. If the
transaction and subsequent NASDAQ-listing go ahead, this transaction could
represent a significant upside potential for Inin Group," says Øivind Horpestad,
CEO of Inin Group AS and chairman of Elop Technology AS.
ARC Group Limited is acting as the exclusive financial advisor to Elop
Technology AS in this potential transaction.
Inin Group expects the final terms and conditions to be negotiated and finalized
during the first quarter 2023. 

During 2022, Inin Group acquired Nordic Infrastructure Group AS, a rail-focused
construction competence and service supplier; Hadeland Elektro AS, a complete
electrotechnical solution provider for power supply and infrastructure projects;
and established testing, inspection and certification (TIC) company Nordic
Inspekt Group AB. 

In addition, Inin Group owns Elop Technology AS, which delivers inspection
hardware and software, including ultrasound-based scanner solutions to determine
the internal state of concrete structures. 

"Inin Group aims to ensure value creation through a combination of well-executed
acquisitions and successful organic growth initiatives. Our starting point for
consolidation is to identify an attractive market or niche. The plan is that our
portfolio companies, such as Nordic Infrastructure Group or Nordic Inspekt
Group, make the acquisitions to consolidate and/or to add a service or
competence. Our preference is to co-own with management and founders, but we can
also choose to acquire all shares in a company," says Øivind Horpestad, CEO of
Inin Group.
