    *EURONEXT ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF ITS CASH TENDER OFFER FOR OSLO BØRS VPS*

    *Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, London and Paris - 14 January 2019 -* Euronext, the leading pan-European exchange, today published the offer document for its previously announced all-cash tender offer to acquire all issued and outstanding shares of Oslo Børs VPS Holding ASA ("Oslo Børs VPS") for NOK 6.24 billion (€625m^[1]). The offer document is available at: www.euronext.com:

    · The offer price is *NOK 145 per share*, representing a 32 % premium on Oslo Børs VPS's closing price on 17 December 2018^[2] and 34 % on Oslo Børs VPS's 3-month volume-weighted average share price. Each accepting shareholder will also receive an interest payment on the offer price equal to 6 % per annum, from the date of acceptance until fulfilment of the conditions of the offer.
    · The *acceptance period of the tender offer commences today, will expire at 17:30 Central European Time on 11 February 2019*, and can be extended if appropriate. Euronext has already secured support for the offer from Oslo Børs VPS shareholders representing 50.5% of the total number of outstanding shares through irrevocable binding pre-commitments to tender shares in the context of the offer, and share purchases.
    · The offer is *subject to fulfilment or waiver of certain conditions*, including but not limited to minimum acceptance level  of at least 50.01 % of Oslo Børs VPS outstanding shares (including shares already held by Euronext), regulatory approvals, short confirmatory due diligence, a favourable vote from a majority of Euronext shareholders and completion of the transaction before 31 August 2019.

    If its offer is accepted, Euronext, already managing the national stock exchanges of five European countries and the Portuguese CSD, will be fully committed to *the further development of Oslo Børs VPS, both its stock exchange and the central securities depository (CSD, known as 'VPS'), as well as the  broader Norwegian financial ecosystem*. In this context, Euronext's strategic ambition relies on a strong commitment to:

    · *increase the prominence of Oslo Børs VPS's* trading business, by leveraging Euronext capabilities to position it as the *key capital markets hub in the Nordic region*, capitalising on its leading position in the energy, shipping and seafood sector, and as the launchpad for expansion in the Nordic region;
    · offer Oslo Børs VPS's issuers and investors the benefits of access to the *largest liquidity pool in Europe*;  *build a truly pan-European market data offering *by combining Oslo Børs VPS's data and audience with that of Euronext;
    · make Oslo Børs VPS *the Group's center of excellence for all Euronext activities in commodities*;
    · *promote market integrity and inclusion within Euronext's open and decentralised model*, including, among other initiatives, the invitation for the Oslo Børs VPS CEO to join the Managing Board of Euronext as country CEO for Norway with Group-wide responsibilities for commodities, and for a leading figure of the Norwegian financial ecosystem to join the Supervisory Board of Euronext, subject to required approvals;
    · *enhance Oslo Børs VPS's technology and innovation capabilities*, notably through the roll-out of Euronext's state-of-the-art proprietary Optiq^TM trading technology;
    · *secure the position of VPS, the national CSD, *through commitment to technology investments, operational independence and continued local supervision and regulation;
    · invest in *educational programmes dedicated to supporting SMEs and family businesses and to develop corporate social responsibility products *for the benefit of* financing the real economy*;
    · leverage the depth of Euronext's suite of services for the benefit of Norwegian investors and issuers, by *providing access to global FX markets for investors and to a full range of service tools for issuers and investors.*

    Stéphane Boujnah, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Managing Board of Euronext, said:

    "In a rapidly evolving and increasingly competitive global market, Euronext strongly believes that Oslo Børs VPS would improve its competitive positioning, further increase its relevance to the Norwegian financial ecosystem and reinforce its strong existing international listing franchise by joining forces with Euronext, the leading pan-European market infrastructure. If the offer is accepted, Oslo Børs VPS would benefit from the largest European liquidity pool, Euronext's cutting edge technology and innovation capabilities, and access to new asset classes, tools and markets. Oslo Børs VPS would maintain its identity and integrity within Euronext's decentralised model, while the CSD VPS would keep its operational independence to serve the Norwegian investor community, in an integrated framework of governance and supervision. The combination would be a major milestone towards Euronext's vision of building a consistent pan-European marketplace offering best-in-class capital markets services."

Of these, the market for automotive bearings in electric vehicle showcased the fastest growth, in terms of volume, during the historical period. Increased government support in form of subsidies and regulations, and public acceptance of electric vehicles drove the demand for these vehicles, which in turn, boosted the market growth, globally.

    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — An Australian state government on Tuesday announced plans to mechanically pump oxygen into lakes and rivers after hundreds of thousands of fish have died in heatwave conditions. Up to a million dead fish were found floating last week in the Darling River in western New South Wales state and the state government announced that 1,800 more rotting fish had since been found in Lake Hume in the state's south. Minister for Regional Water Niall Blair said 16 battery-powered aerators had been bought and would be placed in various drought-affected waterways after they are delivered by Wednesday. "They are a Band-Aid solution; we admit that," Blair told reporters. Reported by SeattlePI.com 2 hours ago.
