Profit and loss effect of pension scheme changes

March 7, 2012 - London

(Oslo, 7 March 2012) EDB ErgoGroup ASA has decided to wind up an earlier pension scheme operated by the former company IS Partner, and the scheme is now co-ordinated with the current AFP early retirement scheme. This will result in a reduction in annual pension costs of NOK 7.5 million. In addition, capitalised pension liabilities, including un-amortised actuarial gains related to the scheme, will be recognised to profit and loss, and this will have a non-recurring positive effect in the order of NOK 50 million in the first quarter of 2012
