REC Silicon - Share issue in connection with strategic equity investment by Hanwha Solutions

(Oslo, Norway, 14 January 2022). Reference is made to the announcements on 18
November 2021 and 14 January 2022 regarding the agreement between REC Silicon
ASA ("REC Silicon" or the "Company"), Hanwha Solutions Corporation ("Hanwha
Solutions") and Aker Horizons ASA, through its subsidiary Aker Horizons Holding
AS ("Aker Horizons") pursuant to which REC Silicon shall issue, and Hanwha
Solutions shall subscribe for, 48,213,001 new shares (the "New Shares") in REC
Silicon at a subscription price of NOK 20 per share, totalling approximately NOK
964 million in proceeds in a directed share issue (the "Share Issue") and Aker
Horizons shall sell and Hanwha Solutions shall acquire 21,891,275 existing
shares in the Company (the "Share Purchase") at a price of NOK 20 per share
simultaneously with the Share Issue. At completion of the Share Issue and Share
Purchase (the "Transactions"), Aker Horizons and Hanwha Solutions will each own
approximately 16.67 percent of the shares in REC Silicon.

As a result of the agreed Share Issue, the board of directors of REC Silicon has
resolved to increase the Company's share capital with NOK 48,213,001 by the
issuance of 48,213,001, each with a par value of NOK 1. The share capital
increase pertaining to the Share Issue was resolved by the Board of Directors of
the Company on 14 January 2022 pursuant to the existing authorization granted by
the general meeting held on 11 May 2021 to the board of REC Silicon.

Following the issuance of the New Shares, the Company will have an issued share
capital of NOK 420,625,659, divided into shares 420,625,659, each with a par
value of NOK 1.

As a consequence of the Share Issue structure, the shareholders' preferential
right will be deviated from. The board of REC Silicon has considered the
structure of the contemplated Share Issue of New Shares in light of the equal
treatment obligations under the Norwegian Public Limited Companies Act, the
Norwegian Securities Trading Act and the rules on equal treatment under Oslo
Rule Book II for companies listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange and the Oslo Stock
Exchange's Guidelines on the rule of equal treatment. The Company is of the view
that it will be in the common interest of the Company and its shareholders to
carry out the Share Issue, in view of the strategic partnership with Hanwha
Solutions and the growth opportunities currently available to the Company. The
board has further assessed that it will not be required to implement a
subsequent offering.

Arctic Securities is acting as settlement agent in connection with the
Transactions.
