March 28, 2014, Geneva, Switzerland – Etrion Corporation (“Etrion” or the
“Company”) (TSX: ETX / OMX: ETX), a solar independent power producer, announces
closing of books for a new EUR 80 million secured bond in the Norwegian bond
market. The new bond has an annual interest rate of 8.0% and matures in April
2019.

Net proceeds from the bond issue will be used to refinance the Company’s
existing EUR 60 million corporate bond that pays 9.0% annual interest and
matures April 2015 with ISIN NO0010607302 (“ETRION01 PRO”), as well as for
general corporate purposes.

Marco A. Northland, Etrion’s CEO, commented: “We are very pleased once again
with the strong interest shown by the Scandinavian capital markets. This bond
issue allows us to refinance our existing corporate bond with a larger amount on
a longer maturity at a lower interest rate. The incremental proceeds after the
refinancing will be used to advance our project pipeline in Chile and Japan.”

ABG Sundal Collier, Pareto Securities and Swedbank acted as joint lead managers
for the bond issue.
