Storebrand Livsforsikring AS ("Storebrand") announces the successful placement
of EUR 300,000,000 Fixed/Floating Rate Dated Subordinated Notes Due 2043 (the
"Notes") at a fixed, annual coupon of 6.875%.

The Notes provide for an optional call by Storebrand from 2023 and for the
optional or mandatory deferral of interest under certain circumstances. The
Notes will qualify as available solvency margin under the prevailing European
regulatory capital regime for insurers and are intended to qualify as Tier 2
capital under future European regulatory capital requirements for insurers
(Solvency II). The Notes are expected to be issued on 4 April 2013 and will be
listed on the regulated market of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

Storebrand will use the net proceeds of the issue of the Notes to repay
existing subordinated indebtedness and for general corporate purposes.

Storebrand mandated Citi and J.P. Morgan as joint structuring agents and joint
bookrunners and Nordea as joint bookrunner for the transaction.
