NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN
AUSTRALIA, CANADA, THE HONG KONG SPECIAL ADMINISTRATIVE REGION OF THE PEOPLE'S
REPUBLIC OF CHINA, JAPAN OR THE UNITED STATES, OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN
WHICH SUCH RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL. 
 
Oslo, 8 September 2020. Nordic Semiconductor ASA ("Nordic Semiconductor" or "the
Company") announces an offering of new shares (the "New Shares") in order to
raise gross proceeds of the NOK equivalent of approximately USD 125 million (the
"Offering"). 
 
The net proceeds from the issuance of the New Shares in the Offering will be
employed to support the Company’s continued growth trajectory, including working
capital requirements and supply chain enhancements, ramp-up new Tier 1
customers, strengthen the balance sheet, continue investments to expand product
portfolio for existing and future growth opportunities as well as to pursue
potential bolton M&A opportunities.
 
The Company has retained Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc, ABG Sundal
Collier ASA and DNB Markets, a part of DNB Bank ASA, as joint bookrunners in
connection with the Offering (jointly the "Managers"). 
 
The Offering will be directed towards Norwegian and international investors,
subject to applicable exemptions from relevant registration, filing and
prospectus requirements, and subject to other applicable selling restrictions.
The minimum application and allocation amount have been set to the NOK
equivalent of EUR 100,000. The Company may however, at its sole discretion,
allocate amounts below EUR 100,000 to the extent exemptions from the prospectus
requirements in accordance with applicable regulations, including the Norwegian
Securities Trading Act and ancillary regulations, are available. 
 
The offer price in the Offering will be determined by the board of directors of
the Company (the "Board") following an accelerated bookbuilding process. The
bookbuilding period for the Offering commences today, on 8 September 2020 at
16:30 CEST and is expected to close on 9 September 2020 at 08:00 CEST. The
Company, after consultation with the Managers, reserves the right to at any time
and in its sole discretion close or extend the bookbuilding period or to cancel
the Offering in its entirety and for any reason. If the bookbuilding is
shortened or extended, the other dates referred to herein may be changed
correspondingly.  
 
Completion of the Offering by delivery of the New Shares is subject to (i) the
approval by the Board of the Offering including the Board resolving to issue the
New Shares pursuant to an authorisation to increase the share capital granted by
the Company's annual general meeting held on 21 April 2020, (ii) the placement
agreement entered into by the Joint Bookrunners and the Company on 8 September
2020 not being terminated by the Managers in accordance with the terms thereof
and (iii) the share capital increase pertaining to the issuance of the New
Shares being registered with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises, and
such other corporate resolutions and actions deemed necessary by the Company to
effectuate the Offering. Neither the Company nor the Managers shall have no
liability towards the applicants should one or more of the conditions not be
satisfied. 
 
The Company reserves the right to cancel, and/or modify the terms of, the
Offering at any time and for any reason prior to delivery of the New Shares.
Neither the Company nor the Managers will be liable for any losses incurred by
investors if the Offering is cancelled and/or modified, irrespective of the
reason for such cancellation. 
 
Allocation of the shares in the Offering will be determined after the expiry of
the bookbuilding period, and the final allocation will be made by the Board at
its sole discretion, following advice from the Managers. The Company has entered
into a pre-payment arrangement with the Managers in order to facilitate delivery
of the New Shares allocated in the Offering on a delivery versus payment basis
with a regular T+2 cycle. When the New Shares have been fully paid and the share
capital increase pertaining 2 to the issuance of the New Shares have been duly
registered with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises and the New
Shares have been registered in VPS, the New Shares allocated in the Offering
will be tradeable on the Oslo Stock Exchange.  
 
The Company will announce the exact number of New Shares to be issued in the
Offering through a stock exchange notice expected to be published before opening
of the trading on Oslo Stock Exchange on 9 September 2020.  
 
Subject to completion of the Offering, the Company has agreed to a 90 days
lock-up for the Company, subject to customary exemptions as well as relating
share issuance under employee stock option and management remuneration plans.  
 
The Board has considered the Offering in light of the equal treatment
obligations under the Norwegian Securities Trading Act, the Continuing
obligations of companies admitted to trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange and Oslo
Børs' Circular no. 2/2014, and is of the opinion that the proposed Offering is
in compliance with these requirements. By structuring the transaction as a
private placement, the Company will be in a position to raise capital in an
efficient manner, with a lower discount to the current trading price and with
significantly lower completion risks compared to a rights issue. In addition,
the Offering is subject to marketing through a publicly announced bookbuilding
process and a market-based offer price should therefore be achieved. The Board
also aims to widen the Company's shareholder base by completing the transaction
as a private placement. Furthermore, the number of New Shares to be issued in
connection with the contemplated Offering will imply a limited dilution of
existing shareholders. On this basis and based on an assessment of the current
equity markets, the Board has considered the Offering to be in the common
interest of the Company and its shareholders. As a consequence of the private
placement structure, the shareholders' preferential rights to subscribe for the
New Shares will be deviated from. 
 
Advokatfirmaet CLP DA is acting as legal advisor to the Company in connection
with the Offering and Advokatfirmaet Thommessen AS is acting as the Norwegian
legal advisor to the Managers.
