Ferratum Oyj Board of Directors approves a plan to convert Ferratum Oyj to a European Company (SE)

Helsinki, 16 December 2020 - Ferratum Oyj (ISIN: FI4000106299, WKN: A1W9NS) ("Ferratum" or "the Group") announced on 29 October 2020 that it contemplates conversion into a European Company (Societas Europae, SE) (the "Conversion").

The Board of Directors of Ferratum have today resolved to approve the draft terms of Conversion and a report explaining and justifying the legal and economic aspects of the Conversion. The Conversion will be carried out 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 a governance perspective. The Conversion will be carried out in accordance with the Finnish Act on European Company (742/2004) and the Council Regulation (EC) 2157/2001 on the Statute for a European company (SE) ("SE Regulation"). The draft terms of conversion and the report are appended to this announcement as attachments.

In accordance with the requirements for Conversion provided in the Finnish Act on Employee Involvement in European Companies (SE) and European Cooperative Societies (SCE) (758/2004), the Board of Directors also decided to establish a special negotiating body and commence negotiations concerning employee involvement in Ferratum SE.

The final decision on the Conversion is subject to approval by the shareholders' general meeting to be convened at a later stage.
