El-produkter designs, markets and sells LED-lighting including, inter alia,
lighting design support. The products are sold under its own brand for the
professional installer market in Norway. The company is headquartered in
Ullsteinvik and has aggregate annual sales of over MNOK 50 with good
profitability.

“For several years El-produkter has displayed a powerful offering to the
installer market in Norway and in recent years has successfully introduced LED
-products to their customers. Together with our existing companies within the
lighting and lighting control services industry, we will now be getting a
stronger offering for a growing industry”, says Jörgen Wigh, President & CEO of
Lagercrantz Group, in a comment.

Hallbjørn Leirvik, President and part-owner of El-produkter: “With Lagercrantz
as owner we get a financially strong owner with a long-term outlook, which means
that we will be able to continue developing and expanding the company. We are
looking forward to the possibility to develop the company further within the
Lagercrantz Group.”

El-produkter will become part of Lagercrantz Group’s division Electronics. The
deal is expected to close during December 2013, after obtaining approval from,
among others, the Norwegian competition authority. The acquisition is expected
to generate a small positive contribution to consolidated earnings per share on
an annual basis.
