NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN WHOLE OR IN PART IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, NEW ZEALAND, SOUTH AFRICA OR SINGAPORE OR ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL.

This document is an announcement and not a prospectus for the purposes of applicable measures implementing EU Directive 2003/71/EC as amended (such Directive, together with any applicable implementing measures of the relevant Member State under such Directive, the "Prospectus Directive") and as such does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to purchase securities. Investors should not subscribe for, or purchase, any securities referred to in this document except on the basis of the information in the prospectus, prepared pursuant to the Prospectus Directive, in connection with the proposed listing of ordinary shares in the share capital of the Company on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd (the "Prospectus").

DNA Oyj ("DNA" or the "Company") publishes a Finnish language prospectus (the "Finnish Prospectus") in connection with its planned initial public offering ("IPO" or the "Offering"). The subscription period for the IPO commences today 15 November 2016 at 10:00 EET.

The Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority has on 14 November approved DNA's Finnish Prospectus. The Finnish Prospectus relates to the IPO, in which preliminarily a maximum of 1,000,000 Offer Shares (as defined below) are being offered to private individuals and entities in Finland and 39,981,143 Offer Shares to Finnish and international institutional investors, assuming the over-allotment option is not exercised. In the personnel offering, the Company is offering a maximum of 50,000 New Shares (as defined below) and, in the event of an oversubscription, a maximum of 250,000 additional New Shares for subscription to all permanent or fixed-term employees of the Company or its wholly-owned subsidiaries in Finland and all agency employees who work at the Company or its wholly-owned subsidiaries in Finland during the subscription period, the members of the Board of Directors of the Company and the CEO of the Company (the "Personnel Offering"). The terms and conditions of the Offering are attached in their entirety to this release.

By offering new shares ("New Shares") for subscription (the "Share Issue"), the Company aims to raise gross proceeds of approximately EUR 50 million. In addition, preliminarily up to 35,950,000 existing shares (the "Sale Shares", and together with the New Shares, the "Offer Shares") in the Company are being offered for sale by certain existing shareholders of the Company. The number of New Shares to be issued will be determined based on the final offer price per Offer Share (the "Final Offer Price"), which will be communicated through a stock exchange release on or about 29 November 2016. The Company would issue 4,766,905 New Shares assuming that the Final Offer Price would be at the mid-point of the preliminary price range of EUR 9.85 - 11.15 per Offer Share and total of 50,000 New Shares would be subscribed in the Personnel Offering at a discount applicable to such New Shares. In the event the number of New Shares issued in the Share Issue is 4,766,905 as mentioned above, the number of Company's shares outstanding after the Offering would amount to 132,092,755 shares.

DNA announced the preliminary price range for the IPO on 14 November 2016. The Finnish Prospectus and a Finnish-language marketing brochure are available in electronic format on the Company's website at www.dna.fi/listautumisanti.
