ICE FISH FARM AS (IFISH): Majority Shareholder Msval Eiendom Hires Financial Advisor to Explore Opportunities for Strategic Partnerships

Frøya, Norge, 17 November 2022

Måsøval Eiendom AS ("Måsøval Eiendom") has today announced that it has engaged
ABG Sundal Collier ASA to explore the potential for establishing a partnership
in relation to its shareholding in Ice Fish Farm AS (the "Company" or "Ice Fish
Farm"). 
This initiative comes on the back of Måsøval Eiendom receiving incoming interest
from several high-quality parties to form partnerships or similar structures.
Commenting on the planned initiative, Lars Måsøval, Chairman and CEO in Måsøval
Eiendom, stated: "Ice Fish Farm is the largest salmon farmer in Iceland in terms
of license capacity, and is the only salmon farmer on the East coast,
representing several hundreds of kilometres of coastline. The Company has
licenses and applications, and additional capacity within its fjords, to become
a significant player in the global salmon farming industry, and be much larger
than Måsøval's Norwegian farming operations. Furthermore, the Company has just
started this growth journey, and will be stocking about 6 million smolts this
year. Hence, we believe it is the right timing for Måsøval Eiendom to explore
the possibilities of bringing in a strong partner, alongside ourselves, to
support the upcoming growth phase of Ice Fish Farm".
Any establishment of a partnership will not change the fundamental objective of
Måsøval Eiendom, which is to continue as a long-term shareholder of Ice Fish
Farm.
The initiated partnership process is expected to be concluded no later than
during the first half of 2023. 
Måsøval Eiendom is fully controlled by members of the Måsøval family, who has
been a pioneer within salmon farming since starting in the 1970s with salmon
farming operations on the coast of Central Norway. Måsøval Eiendom is today the
majority owner of two listed salmon farmers, Måsøval AS and Ice Fish Farm AS.
