Reference is made to the press release on 9 November 2023 regarding a purported and ineffective acceleration notice from a bondholder regarding Eurobonds issued under the 2020 and 2021 EMTN programmes. SBB Treasury Oyj and Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget i Norden AB (publ) (together “SBB”) have been notified that the same bondholder has now initiated formal legal proceedings. The disclosed holdings of the bondholder represent approximately EUR 46 million in nominal amount spread across both EMTN programmes.

As previously stated in the press releases of 31 May 2023 and 9 November 2023, SBB firmly rejects the allegation that it is in breach of the EMTN consolidated coverage ratio covenant and considers the acceleration notice received from this bondholder ineffective.

SBB will take all necessary legal measures to protect the interests of itself and its stakeholders. While any legal process is inherently uncertain, SBB and its advisors expect that it may take approximately 18 months to reach a judgement.
