NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO AUSTRALIA, CANADA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, NEW ZEALAND OR SOUTH AFRICA OR IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE TENDER OFFER WOULD BE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

PPG Industries, Inc. (“PPG” or the “Offeror”), a corporation incorporated under the laws of Pennsylvania, and Tikkurila Oyj (“Tikkurila” or the “Company”) announced on December 18, 2020 entry into a combination agreement (the “Combination Agreement”), which was amended on January 5, 2021, pursuant to which the Offeror would make a voluntary recommended public cash tender offer for all the issued and outstanding shares in the Company (the “Shares”, or individually a “Share), that are not held by the Company or any of its subsidiaries (the “Tender Offer”).

According to the information provided by the Offeror, the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority has today approved the Finnish language version of the tender offer document relating to the Tender Offer (the “Tender Offer Document”). The offer period under the Tender Offer (the “Offer Period”, which includes any extensions to or suspensions of the Offer Period) will commence on January 15, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. (Finnish time) and expire on March 15, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. (Finnish time), unless the Offer Period is extended in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and applicable laws and regulations. The Tender Offer is currently expected to be completed during the first half of 2021.

The Tender Offer Document will be available in Finnish together with an English translation thereof, from January 15, 2021 at Nasdaq Helsinki Oy at Fabianinkatu 14, FI-00100 Helsinki, Finland. An electronic version of the Tender Offer Document will be available in Finnish online at https://tenderoffer-tikkurila.ppg.com/ and at https://danskebank.fi/tikkurila as well as at https://www.tikkurilagroup.com/fi/sijoittajat/ostotarjous-tikkurilan-osakkeista from January 15, 2021. The English language translation of the electronic Tender Offer Document will be available online at https://tenderoffer-tikkurila.ppg.com/ and at https://danskebank.fi/tikkurila-en as well as at https://www.tikkurilagroup.com/investors/tender-offer-all-shares from January 15, 2021.

In the Tender Offer, the Offeror shall offer to acquire all the Shares for a consideration of EUR 27.75 in cash for each Share validly tendered in the Tender Offer (the “Offer Price”) subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and the adjustments described below. The Offer Price has been determined based on 44,105,881 Shares. Should the Company change the number of Shares as a result of a new issue, reclassification, stock split (including a reverse split) or any other similar transaction with a dilutive effect, or should the Company distribute a dividend or otherwise distribute funds or any other assets to its shareholders, or if a record date with respect to any of the foregoing shall occur prior to the consummation of the Tender Offer, the Offer Price shall be adjusted accordingly on a euro-for-euro basis. The Tender Offer values the Company’s total equity at approximately EUR 1.22 billion.

The Offer Price represents a premium of approximately 84.5 per cent compared to the closing price of the Shares on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd (“Nasdaq Helsinki”) on December 17, 2020, the last trading day prior to the announcement of the Tender Offer; approximately 89.1 per cent compared to the volume-weighted average trading price of the Shares on Nasdaq Helsinki during the three (3)-month period prior to and up to the date of the announcement of the Tender Offer; and approximately 97.3 per cent compared to the volume-weighted average trading price of the Shares on Nasdaq Helsinki during the twelve (12)-month period prior to and up to the date of the announcement of the Tender Offer.

The members of the Board of Directors of the Company, who participated in the decision-making, have unanimously decided to recommend that the shareholders of the Company accept the Tender Offer.

Certain major shareholders of Tikkurila, i.e. Oras Invest Oy, Varma Mutual Pension Insurance Company, Mandatum Life Insurance Company Limited and Kaleva Mutual Insurance Company, representing in the aggregate approximately 29.39 per cent of the shares and votes in the Company, have irrevocably undertaken to accept the Tender Offer, subject to certain customary conditions.

The completion of the Tender Offer is subject to certain customary conditions being fulfilled or waived by the Offeror on or by the date of the Offeror’s announcement of the final result of the Tender Offer. These include, among others, obtaining all necessary regulatory approvals and acceptance of the Tender Offer with respect to Shares representing, together with Shares otherwise held by the Offeror prior to the announcement of the final result of the Tender Offer, on a fully diluted basis, more than ninety (90) percent of the Shares and voting rights in the Company calculated in accordance with Chapter 18, Section 1 of the Finnish Companies Act (624/2006, as amended) governing the right and obligation to commence redemption proceedings.

Most Finnish account operators will send a notice regarding the Tender Offer and related instructions and an acceptance form to their customers who are registered as shareholders in the shareholders’ register of Tikkurila maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd. Shareholders of Tikkurila who do not receive such instructions or an acceptance form from their account operator or asset manager should primarily contact their own account operator or asset manager. Secondarily, shareholders of Tikkurila can contact Danske Bank A/S, Finland Branch (“Danske Bank”) by sending an email to: tikkurila-offer@danskebank.com, where such shareholders can receive information for submitting their acceptance of the Tender Offer.

Those shareholders of Tikkurila whose Shares are nominee-registered and who wish to accept the Tender Offer must submit their acceptance in accordance with the instructions given by the custodial nominee for those account holders. The Offeror will not send an acceptance form or any other documents related to the Tender Offer to these shareholders of Tikkurila.

A shareholder of Tikkurila who wishes to accept the Tender Offer must submit the properly completed and duly executed acceptance form to the account operator that manages the shareholder’s book-entry account in accordance with the instructions and within the time period set by the account operator, which may be prior to the expiry of the Offer Period. The Offeror reserves the right to reject any acceptances that have been submitted erroneously or deficiently.

With respect to pledged Shares, acceptance of the Tender Offer requires the consent of the pledgee. Acquiring this consent is the responsibility of the relevant shareholders of Tikkurila. The pledgee’s consent must be delivered to the account operator in writing.

Information for shareholders of Tikkurila in the United States

Shareholders of Tikkurila in the United States are advised that the Shares are not listed on a U.S. securities exchange and that Tikkurila is not subject to the periodic reporting requirements of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and is not required to, and does not, file any reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) thereunder.

The Tender Offer will be made for the Shares of Tikkurila, which is domiciled in Finland, and is subject to Finnish disclosure and procedural requirements. The Tender Offer is made in the United States pursuant to Section 14(e) and Regulation 14E under the Exchange Act, subject to exemptions provided by Rule 14d-1(d) under the Exchange Act for a “Tier II” tender offer, and otherwise in accordance with the disclosure and procedural requirements of Finnish law, including with respect to the Tender Offer timetable, settlement procedures, withdrawal, waiver of conditions and timing of payments, which are different from those of the United States. In particular, the financial information, if any, included in this announcement has been prepared in accordance with applicable accounting standards in Finland, which may not be comparable to the financial statements or financial information of U.S. companies. The Tender Offer will be made to the Company’s shareholders resident in the United States on the same terms and conditions as those that will be made to all other shareholders of the Company to whom an offer is made.

To the extent permissible under applicable law or regulations, the Offeror and its affiliates or its brokers and its brokers’ affiliates (acting as agents for the Offeror or its affiliates, as applicable) may from time to time after the date of the stock exchange release regarding the Tender Offer on December 18, 2020 and during the pendency of the Tender Offer, and other than pursuant to the Tender Offer, directly or indirectly, purchase or arrange to purchase the Shares or any securities that are convertible into, exchangeable for or exercisable for the Shares. These purchases may occur either in the open market at prevailing prices or in private transactions at negotiated prices. To the extent information about such purchases or arrangements to purchase is made public in Finland, such information will be disclosed by means of a press release or other means reasonably calculated to inform U.S. shareholders of such information. No purchases will be made outside the Tender Offer in the United States by or on behalf of the Offeror.  In addition, the financial advisers to the Offeror may also engage in ordinary course trading activities in securities of the Company, which may include purchases or arrangements to purchase such securities. To the extent required in Finland, any information about such purchases will be made public in Finland in the manner required by Finnish law.

Neither the SEC nor any U.S. state securities commission has approved or disapproved the Tender Offer, passed upon the merits or fairness of the Tender Offer, or passed any comment upon the adequacy, accuracy or completeness of the disclosure in this stock exchange release. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.

The receipt of cash pursuant to the Tender Offer by a U.S. holder of Shares may be a taxable transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes and under applicable U.S. state and local, as well as foreign and other, tax laws. Each holder of Shares is urged to consult its independent professional adviser immediately regarding the tax consequences of accepting the Tender Offer.

It may be difficult for the Company’s shareholders to enforce their rights and any claims they may have arising under the U.S. federal securities laws, since the Company is located in a non-U.S. jurisdiction, and some or all of its officers and directors may be residents of non-U.S. jurisdictions. The Company’s shareholders may not be able to sue the Company or its officers or directors in a non-U.S. court for violations of the U.S. federal securities laws. It may be difficult to compel the Company and its affiliates to subject themselves to a U.S. court’s judgment.

Material Adverse Change” means (a) the Company or any of its subsidiaries becoming insolvent, subject to administration, bankruptcy or any other equivalent insolvency proceedings, or, if any legal proceedings (other than by the Offeror or its affiliates) or corporate resolution is taken by, or against any of, them in respect of any such proceedings, such action could reasonably be expected to result in the commencement of such proceedings; provided, in each case, that such proceedings could reasonably be expected to result in a material adverse change in, or material adverse effect to, the business, assets, financial condition or results of operation of the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole; or (b) any fact, change, effect, event, occurrence or circumstance that, individually or in the aggregate, has had or would reasonably be expected to have a material adverse change in, or material adverse effect on, the business, assets, liabilities, condition (financial or otherwise) or results of operations of the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole, provided, that none of the following shall be deemed to constitute or contribute to a material adverse change or material adverse effect to the extent they arise from: (i) political, financial, industry, economic (including with respect to interest rates or currency exchange rates) or regulatory conditions generally so long as they do not have a materially disproportionate effect on the Company or its subsidiaries relative to other companies in Europe operating in the industry or industries in which the Company or any of its subsidiaries operate; (ii) any natural disaster, escalation or exacerbation of the Covid-19 pandemic or outbreak of any other disease, outbreak of major hostilities or act of war or terrorism so long as they do not have a materially disproportionate effect on the Company or its subsidiaries relative to other companies in Europe operating in the industry or industries in which the Company or any of its subsidiaries operate; (iii) any matters that have been fairly disclosed in the due diligence information or, in the three (3) years prior to 16 December 2020, published through a stock exchange release or press release of the Company that is currently publicly and readily available to the Offeror (including any publicly disclosed annual reviews, half-year financial reports or business reviews of the Company), in each case, excluding any disclosures therein that are predictive, cautionary or forward-looking in nature; (iv) the failure of the Company to meet any internal or published projections, forecasts, estimates or predictions in respect of revenues, earnings, net asset value or other financial or operating metrics before, on or after 18 December 2020, provided that nothing provided in this clause (iv) shall prevent or otherwise affect the determination whether any fact, change, effect, event, occurrence or circumstance underlying such failure constitutes or contributes to a Material Adverse Change; (v) changes in the market price or trading volume of the Company’s securities, provided that any underlying cause of such changes in the market price or trading volume of the Company’s securities may still be deemed to constitute or contribute to a Material Adverse Change; (vi) the public announcement of the Tender Offer or the proposed combination (other than with respect to a representation or warranty contained in the Combination Agreement where the purpose of such representation or warranty is to address the consequences resulting from the announcement of the transactions contemplated by the Combination Agreement); or (vii) any actions taken by the Company at the express written request or with the express written consent of the Offeror.

​​​​​​​1.5 Obligation to increase the Offer Price and to pay compensation

The Offeror reserves the right to buy Shares during and after the Offer Period (including any extension thereof) and any Subsequent Offer Period in public trading on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd (“Nasdaq Helsinki”) or otherwise.

Should the Offeror or another party acting in concert with the Offeror in the meaning of Chapter 11, Section 5 of the Securities Markets Act acquire Shares after the announcement of the Tender Offer and before the expiry of the Offer Period at a price higher than the Offer Price, or otherwise on more favourable terms, the Offeror must, in accordance with Chapter 11, Section 25 of the Securities Markets Act, amend the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer to correspond with the terms and conditions of the above-mentioned acquisition on more favourable terms (the “Increase Obligation”). In such case, the Offeror will make public its Increase Obligation without delay and pay, in connection with the completion of the Tender Offer, the difference between the consideration paid in such an acquisition on more favourable terms and the Offer Price to those shareholders that have accepted the Tender Offer.

Should the Offeror or another party acting in concert with the Offeror in the meaning of Chapter 11, Section 5 of the Securities Markets Act acquire Shares within nine (9) months after the expiration of the Offer Period at a price higher than the Offer Price, or otherwise on more favourable terms, the Offeror must, in accordance with Chapter 11, Section 25 of the Securities Markets Act, pay the difference between the consideration paid in an acquisition on more favourable terms and the Offer Price to those shareholders that have accepted the Tender Offer (the “Compensation Obligation”). In such case, the Offeror will make public its Compensation Obligation without delay and pay the difference between the consideration paid in such an acquisition on more favourable terms and the Offer Price within one (1) month of the date when the Compensation Obligation arose for those shareholders that have accepted the Tender Offer.

However, according to Chapter 11, Section 25, Subsection 5 of the Securities Markets Act, the Compensation Obligation will not be triggered in case the payment of a higher price than the Offer Price is based on an arbitral award pursuant to the Finnish Companies Act (624/2006, as amended, the “Companies Act”), provided that the Offeror or any party referred to in Chapter 11, Section 5 of the Securities Markets Act has not offered to acquire Shares on terms that are more favourable than those of the Tender Offer before or during the arbitral proceedings.

​​​​​​​1.6 Acceptance Procedure for the Tender Offer

The Tender Offer may be accepted by a shareholder registered during the Offer Period in the shareholders’ register of Tikkurila, with the exception of Tikkurila and its subsidiaries. Acceptance of the Tender Offer must be submitted separately for each book-entry account. A shareholder of Tikkurila submitting an acceptance must have a cash account with a financial institution operating in Finland or abroad (see the section entitled “Restrictions and Important information” of the tender offer document regarding the Tender Offer (“Tender Offer Document”) as well as see “Terms of payment and settlement” and “Important information regarding NID and LEI” below). Shareholders may only approve the Tender Offer unconditionally and for all Shares that are held on the book-entry accounts mentioned in the acceptance form at the time of the execution of the transactions with respect to the Shares of such shareholder. Acceptances submitted during the Offer Period are effective also until the expiration of an extended or discontinued Offer Period, if any.

Most Finnish account operators will send a notice regarding the Tender Offer and related instructions and an acceptance form to their customers who are registered as shareholders in the shareholders’ register of Tikkurila maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd. Shareholders of Tikkurila who do not receive such instructions or an acceptance form from their account operator or asset manager should primarily contact their own account operator or asset manager. Secondarily, shareholders of Tikkurila can contact Danske Bank A/S, Finland Branch (“Danske Bank”) by sending an email to: tikkurila-offer@danskebank.com, where such shareholders can receive information for submitting their acceptance of the Tender Offer.

Those shareholders of Tikkurila whose Shares are nominee-registered and who wish to accept the Tender Offer, must submit their acceptance in accordance with the instructions given by the custodial nominee account holders. The Offeror will not send an acceptance form or any other documents related to the Tender Offer to these shareholders of Tikkurila.

With respect to pledged Shares, acceptance of the Tender Offer requires the consent of the pledgee. Acquiring this consent is the responsibility of the relevant shareholders of Tikkurila. The pledgee’s consent must be delivered to the account operator in writing.

A shareholder of Tikkurila who wishes to accept the Tender Offer must submit the properly completed and duly executed acceptance form to the account operator that manages the shareholder’s book-entry account in accordance with the instructions and within the time period set by the account operator, which may be prior to the expiry of the Offer Period. The Offeror reserves the right to reject any acceptances that have been submitted erroneously or deficiently. In the event of a Subsequent Offer Period, the acceptance form must be submitted in such a manner that is received during the Subsequent Offer Period, subject to and in accordance with the instructions of the relevant account operator.

Any acceptance must be submitted in such a manner that it will be received within the Offer Period  (including any extended or discontinued extended Offer Period) taking into account, however, the instructions given by the relevant account operator. The account operator may request the receipt of acceptances prior to the expiration of the Offer Period. Shareholders of Tikkurila submit acceptances at their own risk. Any acceptance will be considered as submitted only when an account operator has actually received it. The Offeror reserves a right to reject any acceptance given in an incorrect or incomplete manner.

A shareholder who has validly accepted the Tender Offer in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer may not sell or otherwise control his/her/its tendered Shares. By accepting the Tender Offer, the shareholders authorise their account operator to enter into their book-entry account a sales reservation or a restriction on the right of disposal in the manner set out in “Technical completion of the Tender Offer” below after the shareholder has delivered the acceptance form with respect to the Shares. Furthermore, the shareholders of Tikkurila that accept the Tender Offer authorise their account operator to perform necessary entries and undertake any other measures needed for the technical execution of the Tender Offer, and to sell all the Shares held by the shareholder of Tikkurila at the time of the execution of the transaction to the Offeror in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer. In connection with the completion trades of the Tender Offer or the clearing thereof, the sales reservation or the restriction on the right of disposal will be removed and the Offer Price will be transferred to the shareholders of Tikkurila.

By giving an acceptance on the Tender Offer, the shareholder authorises his/her/its depository participant to disclose the necessary personal data, the number of his/her/its book-entry account and the details of the acceptance to the parties involved in the order or the execution of the order and settlement of the Shares.

For the information agent services, please see the section entitled “Other matters” below.

​​​​​​​1.7 Right of withdrawal of acceptance

An acceptance of the Tender Offer may be withdrawn by a shareholder of Tikkurila at any time before the expiration of the Offer Period (including any extended or discontinued extended Offer Period) until the Offeror has announced that all Conditions to Completion have been fulfilled or waived by the Offeror, that is, the Offeror has declared the Tender Offer unconditional. After such announcement, the Shares already tendered may not be withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Offer Period (including any extended or discontinued extended Offer Period) except in the event that a third party announces a competing public tender offer for the Shares before the execution of the completion trades of the Shares as set out under “Completion of the Tender Offer” below.

A valid withdrawal of the Tender Offer requires that a withdrawal notification is submitted in writing to the account operator to whom the original acceptance form was submitted.

For nominee-registered Shares, the shareholders must request the relevant custodial nominee account holder to execute a withdrawal notification.

If a shareholder of Tikkurila validly withdraws an acceptance of the Tender Offer, the sales reservation or the restriction on the right of disposal with respect to the Shares will be removed within approximately three (3) Finnish banking days of the receipt of a withdrawal notification.

A shareholder of Tikkurila who has validly withdrawn its acceptance of the Tender Offer may accept the Tender Offer again during the Offer Period (including any extended or discontinued extended Offer Period) by following the procedure set out under “Acceptance procedure for the Tender Offer” above.

A shareholder of Tikkurila who withdraws its acceptance is obligated to pay any fees that the account operator operating the relevant book-entry account or the custodial nominee account holder may collect for the withdrawal.

In the event of a Subsequent Offer Period, the acceptance of the Tender Offer will be binding and cannot be withdrawn, unless otherwise provided under mandatory law.

​​​​​​​1.8 Technical completion of the Tender Offer

When an account operator has received a properly completed and duly executed acceptance form with respect to the Shares in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer, the account operator will enter a sales reservation or a restriction on the right of disposal into the relevant shareholder’s book-entry account. In connection with the completion trade of the Tender Offer or the clearing thereof, the sales reservation or the restriction on the right of disposal will be removed and the Offer Price will be paid to the relevant shareholder.

​​​​​​​1.9 Announcement of the result of the Tender Offer

The preliminary result of the Tender Offer will be announced by a release on or about the first (1st) Finnish banking day following the expiration of the Offer Period (including any extended and discontinued extended Offer Period). In connection with the announcement of the preliminary result, it will be announced whether the Tender Offer will be completed subject to the Conditions to Completion continuing to be fulfilled on the date of the final result announcement and whether the Offer Period will be extended. The final result of the Tender Offer will be announced on or about the third (3rd) Finnish banking day following the expiration of the Offer Period (including any extended and discontinued extended Offer Period). In connection with the announcement of the final result, the percentage of the Shares in respect of which the Tender Offer has been validly accepted and not validly withdrawn will be confirmed.

The Offeror will announce the initial percentage of the Shares validly tendered during a possible Subsequent Offer Period on or about the first (1st) Finnish banking day following the expiry of the Subsequent Offer Period and the final percentage on or about the third (3rd) Finnish banking day following the expiry of the Subsequent Offer Period.

​​​​​​​1.10 Completion of the Tender Offer

The Tender Offer will be completed with respect to all of those shareholders of Tikkurila who have validly accepted, and not validly withdrawn, the Tender Offer on or about the fourth (4th) Finnish banking day following the expiration of the Offer Period (including any extended or discontinued extended Offer Period) (the “Completion Date”), preliminarily expected to be on 19 March 2021. If possible, the completion trades of the Shares will be executed on Nasdaq Helsinki, provided that the rules applied on trading on Nasdaq Helsinki allow that. Otherwise, the completion trades will be made outside Nasdaq Helsinki. The completion trades will be settled on or about the Completion Date (the “Clearing Day”), preliminarily expected to be on 19 March 2021.

​​​​​​​1.11 Terms of payment and settlement

The Offer Price will be paid on the Clearing Day to each shareholder of Tikkurila who has validly accepted, and not validly withdrawn, the Tender Offer into the management account of the shareholder’s book-entry account. In any case, the Offer Price will not be paid to a bank account situated in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand or South Africa or any other jurisdiction where the Tender Offer is not being made (see the section entitled “Restrictions and Important information” of the Tender Offer Document. The actual time of receipt of the payment by the shareholder will depend on the schedules for payment transactions between financial institutions and agreement between the holder and account operator, custodian or nominee in each case.

In the event of a Subsequent Offer Period, the Offeror will in connection with the announcement thereof announce the terms of payment and settlement for the Shares tendered during the Subsequent Offer Period. The sale and purchase of the Shares validly tendered in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer during the Subsequent Offer Period will, however, be executed within not more than two (2) -week intervals.

The Offeror reserves the right to postpone the payment of the Offer Price if payment is prevented or suspended due to a force majeure event, but will immediately effect such payment once the force majeure event preventing or suspending payment is resolved.

​​​​​​​1.12 Transfer of title

Title to the Shares in respect of which the Tender Offer has been validly accepted, and not validly withdrawn, will pass to the Offeror on the Clearing Day against the payment of the Offer Price by the Offeror to the tendering shareholder. In the event of a Subsequent Offer Period, title to the Shares validly tendered in the Tender Offer during a Subsequent Offer Period will pass to the Offeror against payment of the Offer Price by the Offeror to the tendering shareholder.

​​​​​​​1.13.  Tender Offer acceptance payments

The Offeror will pay any transfer tax that may be charged in Finland in connection with the sale of the Shares pursuant to the Tender Offer.

Each shareholder of Tikkurila is liable for any payments that, based on an agreement made with the shareholder, an account operator may charge as well as for any fees and commissions charged by account operators, custodians, custodial nominee account holders or other parties related to the release of collateral or the revoking of any other restrictions preventing the sale of the Shares. Each shareholder of Tikkurila is liable for any fees that relate to a withdrawal of an acceptance made by the shareholder.

The Offeror is liable for any other customary costs caused by the registration of entries in the book-entry system required by the Tender Offer, the execution of trades pertaining to the Shares pursuant to the Tender Offer and the payment of the Offer Price.

Should a competing tender offer be published by a third party during the Offer Period and should a shareholder of Tikkurila therefore or otherwise validly withdraw its acceptance of the Tender Offer, certain account operators may charge the shareholder separately for the registration of the relevant entries regarding the acceptance and withdrawal as explained under “Right of withdrawal of acceptance” above.

The receipt of cash pursuant to the Tender Offer by a shareholder of Tikkurila may be a taxable transaction for such shareholder under applicable tax laws, including those of the country of residence/domicile of the shareholder. Any tax liability arising for a shareholder of Tikkurila from the receipt of cash pursuant to the Tender Offer shall be borne by such shareholder. Each shareholder of Tikkurila is urged to consult its independent professional adviser regarding the tax consequences of accepting the Tender Offer.

​​​​​​​1.14  Withholding

Notwithstanding any other provision in the Combination Agreement or the Tender Offer Document to the contrary, the Offeror, the Company, and their respective affiliates shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from amounts otherwise payable pursuant to the Tender Offer any amounts as are required to be withheld or deducted with respect to such payment under any applicable law. To the extent that amounts are so deducted or withheld, and timely remitted to the appropriate governmental entity, such amounts shall be treated for all purposes of the Tender Offer as having been paid to the person in respect of which such deduction or withholding was made.
