FREYR – Update on Expected Transaction Closing

30.06.2021

OSLO, Norway, June 30, 2021 –The business combination of Alussa Energy Acquisition Corp. (“Alussa Energy”)

and FREYR AS (“FREYR”) is expected to be effected on July 9, 2021, through a newly created holding company,

FREYR Battery. As previously announced, Alussa Energy will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of FREYR

Battery, and the legacy business of FREYR (other than FREYR’s wind business) will be operated by a whollyowned subsidiary of FREYR Battery upon the consummation of the transaction. FREYR Battery’s ordinary shares

are expected to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the new symbol “FREY”. In addition, FREYR

Battery’s warrants issued in exchange for warrants of Alussa Energy are expected to be traded on the New York

Stock Exchange under the new symbol “FREYR.WS”.

The Extraordinary General Meeting of Alussa Energy shareholders (the “Special Meeting”) today approved the

proposed business combination with FREYR. Provided all other closing conditions for proposed business

combination are or remain satisfied, the timing of the main events leading up to closing are expected to be as

follows:

  • July 2, 2021: The last day that FREYR trades on NOTC inclusive of its wind business is expected to be

Friday, July 2, 2021. At close of business on that date, the filing to effect the demerger of FREYR’s wind

business from FREYR will be submitted for registration. Registration is expected to take place on the same

day.

  • July 5, 2021: The last day that FREYR trades on NOTC is expected to be Monday, July 5, 2021. At close of

business on that date, the filing to effect the merger of FREYR into Norway Sub 1 AS will be submitted for

registration. Registration is expected to take place on the same day.

• July 7, 2021: The merger of Alussa Energy with FREYR Battery is expected to complete on Wednesday, July

7, 2021. The ordinary shares of FREYR Battery, as well as warrants of FREYR Battery issued in exchange for

warrants of Alussa Energy, will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbols “FREY”

and “FREY.WS”, respectively, from July 8.

• July 9, 2021: The (1) $600 million private placement agreed in connection with the proposed business

combination and (2) the merger of Norway Sub 1 AS with FREYR Battery are expected to be completed on

Friday, July 9, 2021.

The Exchange Ratio for use in the merger of Norway Sub 1 AS into FREYR Battery is expected to be unchanged

at 1 share of Norway Sub 1 AS for 0.179038 shares of FREYR Battery. VPS registered holdings of FREYR /

Norway Sub 1 AS shares and warrants as of July 7, 2021 will be used to determine the number of FREYR Battery

shares and warrants to be issued to each holder on an account by account basis.

The issuance of FREYR Battery ordinary shares and warrants to Alussa Energy holders have been registered on

an effective Form S-4 registration statement and (other than ordinary shares and warrants held by the sponsor

and other affiliated holders) will be immediately freely tradable.

FREYR Battery will seek registration for the resale of shares issued to investors in the $600 million private

placement and holders of Norway Sub 1 (legacy FREYR holders), as well as ordinary shares underlying warrants

issued to Alussa Energy holders, and ordinary shares and warrants held by Alussa’s sponsor and other affiliated

holders through the filing of a registration statement on Form S-1 for the resale of these securities (the “Resale S1”). None of these securities will be freely tradeable until the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the

“SEC”) has notified the FREYR Battery that resales may commence pursuant to the Resale S-1 (the

“Effectiveness”). Given that the timing of the Effectiveness is not solely within FREYR Battery’s control, it cannot

provide an estimate as to when to the Effectiveness will occur and these securities will become freely tradeable.

FREYR Battery intends to seek the Effectiveness as promptly as practicable after the closing of the proposed

business combination. FREYR Battery will provide an update once the Effectiveness has occurred.
