ABG Sundal Collier is acting as financial advisor to Axxis Geo Solutions AS in the announced merger with Songa Bulk ASA

On 16 April 2019, Songa Bulk and Axxis Geo Solutions (AGS) entered into a joint merger plan. The
exchange ratio in the merger is based on an equity value of Songa Bulk of NOK 18 million and an equity
value of AGS of NOK 515 million. Following completion of the merger, AGS will constitute 96.6% of the
combined company, implying that the combined entity will for all practical reasons be transformed into a pure
play ocean bottom node seismic company. Songa Bulk proposes to change its name to Axxis Geo Solutions
ASA upon completion of the Merger. The completion of the merger is expected to take place in June 2019
(subject to conditions set for the merger being fulfilled).
