Exit from Proxima completed

CapMan Plc Stock Exchange Release 21 June 2011 2.15. p.m. EET

Exit from Proxima completed

The exit by various CapMan-managed funds from Proxima Intressenter AB announced on 4 May this year has now been completed. The exit will have an approx. €4.5 million impact on CapMan's result for 2011 as a result of income related to CapMan's own fund investments and an approx. €7.8 million impact on the CapMan Plc Group's cash flow in 2011.

The impact of the transaction on CapMan's result and cash flow has been reduced since its announcement as a result of the weakening of the Swedish crown.

Proxima is a private healthcare company providing a range of services including primary care, diagnostics, specialist care, occupational care, and rehabilitation. The CapMan Buyout VIII, CapMan Life Science IV, and CapMan Mezzanine IV funds have sold their holdings to the private healthcare service provider, Aleris. The three funds made their initial investment in Proxima in 2007 and the investment has proved very good for investors in CapMan's funds.
