Oslo – 28 April, 2023 – Oslo Børs, part of the Euronext Group, today congratulates Norse Atlantic (ticker: NORSE) on its transfer from Euronext Growth Oslo to Euronext Expand Oslo. This is the third transfer between Oslo Børs marketplaces so far this year and the 35th since the beginning of 2020. This illustrates that the Growth market is fulfilling its intended aim, providing growing companies with access to capital for further development and helping them progress to a listing on the main market.

At opening, the share price was NOK 12.80 per share, based on the closing price on Euronext Growth Oslo on 27 April 2023. This corresponds to an estimated market capitalisation of NOK 852 million.
Bjørn Tore Larsen, CEO of Norse Atlantic, said: “Moving to the regulated markets of Oslo Børs has been a key objective for us, so today marks an important milestone for Norse Atlantic Airways in our pursuit to become a leader in the international low-cost, long-haul market. Since listing the company on Euronext Growth when we established Norse about two years ago, we have made good progress in our goal to become the first sustainable low-cost, long-haul airline. We are excited to continue our growth journey, and we look forward to welcoming new investors on board.”
