10 March 2011

Redemption of options TOMRA has in accordance with proxy given at the Annual General Meeting 21 April 2010, exercised 136,676 options under the Group`s option program 2005-2010 for employees.

The redemption has been settled with cash, where the difference between today`s closing price of NOK 41.00 and the strikeprice of NOK 33.30 has been paid out, in total NOK 1,047,785.

In addition, 600 options under the same program have been settled with treasury shares.

The redemption will not have any P/L-impact, as the Group accounts for the option program in accordance with IFRS 2, where the calculated market value for the options is expensed over the vesting period.

After these transactions, all options under Tomras share option programs have been exercised.
