Reference is made to Oceanteam ASA's (OSE trading symbol: "OTS"; hereinafter "Oceanteam" or the "Company") press release of 5 September 2017 regarding the municipal court of Bergen's receipt of a petition for a public investigation ("Investigation") in the Company.
The Company has today received the ruling from the court, which concludes that an Investigation of certain related party transactions will be initiated.
The Company and its legal counsel is of the opinion that there are no legal grounds for an Investigation and that the court's ruling is incorrect. The ruling will therefore be appealed.
Oceanteam will provide the market with further update in due course.
