When relevant, press releases from Storebrand's Information department will also be distributed to investors.

To ensure that all market participants have the same information during the Oslo Stock Exchange opening hours, we will to the extent possible release price sensitive information when the Oslo Stock Exchange is closed.

Our guidelines for scheduled reporting as well as various meetings and other forms of communication with market participants are specified below.

Results reporting
