APPENDIX A

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE OFFERING

The term “subscription” refers in the following to the investor’s offer or commitment in the Offering, irrespective of whether the investor has offered or committed to buy Sale Shares or subscribe for Issue Shares. Similarly the terms “subscriber”, “subscription period”, “subscription place”, subscription price”, “subscription offer” and “subscription commitment” (or other similar terms) refer to both the Share Issue and Share Sale.

General Description

Offering

In the Share Issue and Share Sale (defined below in sections “ – Share Issue” and “ – Share Sale”, together the “Offering“), preliminarily a maximum of 6,897,817 shares (the “Offer Shares“) in Detection Technology Plc. (the “Company“) will be offered to institutional investors in Finland and internationally (the “Institutional Offering“), to private individuals and organisations in Finland (the “Public Offering“) and to the Company’s personnel (the “Personnel Offering“). Terms and conditions of the Public Offering apply to the Personnel Offering unless expressly stated otherwise. Only new Shares of the Company are offered in the Personnel Offering and a discount will be applied to the subscription price of the Personnel Offering as described later in the terms and conditions. The Offer Shares represent approximately 72.6 per cent of the Company’s shares and votes before the Offering and a maximum of approximately 53.3 per cent after the Offering, assuming that all Offer Shares preliminarily offered in the Offering are fully subscribed for and sold and the Over-Allotment Option is not used.

The terms and conditions of the Offering are comprised of the general terms and conditions of the Offering presented herein as well as the special terms and conditions of the Institutional Offering and the Public Offering.

Share Issue

The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders of the Company resolved on 12 February 2015 to authorise the Board of Directors of the Company to decide on an increase in the number of the Company’s shares by a total of 4,500,000 new shares. Based on the authorisation granted by the General Meeting of Shareholders, the Board of Directors resolved on 26 February 2015 preliminarily to issue a maximum of 3,450,000 new shares (the “Issue Shares“) by way of an offer to institutional investors in Finland and internationally and private individuals and entities in Finland (the “Share Issue“). The Issue Shares are offered in deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive subscription right in order to enable the listing of the Company’s shares on a multilateral trading facility First North Finland. The payment made to the Company for the approved Issue Share subscriptions will be booked in its entirety in the invested unrestricted equity fund. Thus, the Company’s share capital will not increase in connection with the Share Issue. As a result of the Share Issue, the number of the Company’s shares can increase to a maximum of 12,950,975 shares. The Issue Shares represent approximately 36.3 per cent of the Company’s shares and votes before the Offering and approximately 26.6 per cent after the Offering, assuming that all Offer Shares preliminarily offered in the Offering are fully subscribed for and sold and the Over-Allotment Option is not used.

Share Sale

The Company’s shareholders identified in Appendix 1 (the “Selling Shareholders“) will offer for purchase preliminarily a maximum of 3,447,817 shares (the “Sale Shares“) to institutional investors in Finland and internationally and to private individuals and entities in Finland (the “Share Sale“). The shares offered in the Share Sale represent approximately 36.3 per cent of the Company’s shares and votes carried by all the Shares before the Offering and approximately 26.6 per cent after the Offering, assuming that all Offer Shares preliminarily offered in the Offering are fully subscribed for and sold and the Over-Allotment Option is not used. If the Offering was not subscribed for in full and the Offering was nevertheless implemented, the number of Sale Shares would be adjusted to correspond to the subscriptions. When reducing the number of Sale Shares, the number of shares sold by Oy G.W. Sohlberg Ab would be reduced primarily. More information about the Selling Shareholders is found in “Appendix 1 – Selling Shareholders“.

Over-Allotment Option

In the event of oversubscription, Oy G.W. Sohlberg Ab grants the Lead Manager an over-allotment option exercisable within 30 days from the commencement of trading of the Shares on First North, i.e. on or about the time period from 16 March 2015 to 14 April 2015, to purchase or to procure purchasers a maximum of 517,173 Shares in the Company solely to cover over-allotments (the “Over-Allotment Option“). Unless otherwise specified or clear from the context, information concerning the Offer Shares also concerns possible Shares to be sold on basis of the Over-Allotment Option. Over-Allotment Option shares represent a maximum of approximately of 5.4 per cent of all the Shares in the Company and their voting rights before the Offering and a maximum of approximately 4.0 per cent after the Offering, provided that all the Offer Shares are subscribed for and the Over-Allotment Option is used in its entirety.

Such measures may be engaged in First North or otherwise. These measures may raise or maintain the market price of the Shares in comparison with the price levels determined independently on the market or may prevent or delay any decrease in the market price of the Shares. However, the stabilisation measures may not be conducted on a higher price than what is the final subscription price in the Offering. The Lead Manager has no obligation to carry out these measures, and it may stop any of these measures at any time. The Lead Manager or the Company on behalf of the Lead Manager will publish information regarding the stabilisation required by legislation or other applicable regulations at the end of stabilisation period.

Any stabilization measures will be conducted in accordance with the European Commission Regulation (EC) No 2273/2003 implementing Directive 2003/6/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards exemptions for buy-back programmes and stabilization of financial instruments.

The Lead Manager has entered into a share lending agreement with Oy G.W. Sohlberg Ab related to the settlement and stabilisation. According to the share lending agreement, the Lead Manager may borrow a number of Shares equal to the Over-Allotment Option to cover any possible over-allotments in connection with the Offering. To the extent that the Lead Manager borrows Shares in this manner, it must return an equal number of Shares or equal rights to Oy G.W. Sohlberg Ab.

The preliminary subscription price range for the Offer Shares is a minimum of EUR 5.20 and a maximum of EUR 6.40 per Share (the “Preliminary Subscription Price Range“). The Preliminary Subscription Price Range can be changed during the subscription period, which will be then communicated by a company release and on the Internet on the website www.deetee.com/listautumisanti. The final subscription price of the Shares may be above or below the Preliminary Subscription Price Range. See ” – Cancellation of the Subscription Commitment – Procedure for Changing the Preliminary Subscription Price Range“. The final subscription price for the Shares shall be decided based on subscription orders (the “Subscription Order“) submitted by institutional investors in negotiations between the Company, the Selling Shareholders and the Lead Manager after the subscription period has ended on or about 13 March 2015 (the “Pricing“). The final subscription price will be announced by a company release immediately following the Pricing and it shall be available at the latest on the next banking day following the Pricing, on or about 16 March 2015 at the subscription places of the Offering and on the Internet on the website www.deetee.com/listautumisanti. The final subscription price for the Personnel Offering is 10 per cent lower than in the Public Offering.

Cancellation of the Subscription Commitment

The subscription commitment submitted in connection with the Public Offering (the “Commitment“) is binding and cannot be changed or cancelled, otherwise than in the situations provided for in the Securities Markets Act.

Procedure for Changing the Preliminary Subscription Price Range

If the Preliminary Subscription Price Range is changed during the subscription period, the Offering Memorandum shall be supplemented, and such supplement of the Offering Memorandum and change in the Preliminary Subscription Price Range shall be published in a company release and on the Internet on the website www.deetee.com/listautumisanti. If the Preliminary Subscription Price Range is changed or if the final subscription price of the Shares differs from the Preliminary Subscription Price Range, investors who have made a Commitment in the Public Offering before the Preliminary Subscription Price Range was changed or before a final subscription price that differs from the Preliminary Subscription Price Range was announced, may, for at least the next two (2) banking days as of the publication of a new price range or the final subscription price in deviation from the Preliminary Subscription Price Range, cancel the Commitment made earlier.

If the Commitment is not cancelled, the number of Shares of an investor, who has paid for his or her Commitment, is recalculated on the basis of the final subscription price. The investor is, however, entitled to maintain the number of Shares unchanged by paying the difference between the maximum price of the Preliminary Subscription Price Range and the maximum price of the new higher price range of the Preliminary Subscription Price Range or the final subscription price, multiplied by the number of Shares of his or her Commitment during two (2) banking days as of the publication of the new price range or the final subscription price in deviation from the Preliminary Subscription Price Range as instructed by the subscription place.

Cancellation in Accordance with the Securities Markets Act

If the Offering Memorandum is supplemented or corrected due to a material error or omission or due to material new information, which arises in accordance with the Securities Markets Act after the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority has approved the Offering Memorandum and before the closing of the offer, investors who have committed to subscribe for Offer Shares before the Offering Memorandum was supplemented or corrected have, in accordance with the Securities Markets Act, the right to cancel their Commitments within at least two (2) banking days after the supplement or correction of the Offering Memorandum has been published. The use of the cancellation right requires that the error, omission or material new information, that led to the supplement or correction, has arisen prior to the delivery of the Offer Shares to the investors.

Any possible cancellation of the Commitment must concern fully the aggregate number of Shares of all Commitments of the investor in question. If the Offering Memorandum is supplemented, such an event shall be announced with a company release. Such company release shall also contain information on the investors’ right to cancel their Commitments. The validity of the offer shall be deemed to close when the execution of the Offering, the final subscription price and the allocation has been decided upon, i.e. preliminarily on 13 March 2015.

Procedure to Cancel the Commitment

The cancellation of a Commitment must be notified in writing to the subscription place where the initial Commitment was made and within the time limit set for such cancellation. However, a Commitment made by telephone to Nordea customer service may be cancelled by telephone. Cancelling or changing a Commitment in the Public Offering cannot be made online via Nordea Netbank or E-subscription, but must be made in other Nordea subscription places. The possible cancellation of a Commitment concerns the entire Commitment. After the period entitling to the cancellation right has lapsed, the cancellation right no longer exists. If the Commitment is cancelled, the subscription place returns the sum paid for the Shares to the bank account notified in the Commitment. The money is returned as soon as possible after the cancellation, approximately within three (3) banking days of serving the subscription place with the cancellation notice. If an investor’s bank account is in a different bank than the subscription place, the refund will be paid to a Finnish bank account in accordance with the payment schedule of the financial institutions, approximately no later than two (2) banking days thereafter. No interest will be paid on such repaid funds.

Registration of Shares to Book-Entry Accounts

An investor making a Commitment must have a book-entry account with a Finnish account operator, or with an account operator operating in Finland, and submit the number of his or her book-entry account in the Commitment. Shares issued in the Public Offering are recorded in the book-entry accounts of investors who have made an approved Commitment on or about the first banking day after the Pricing takes place, on or about 16 March 2015. In the Institutional Offering, the Shares will be ready to be delivered against payment on or about 18 March 2015 through Euroclear Finland.

Title and Shareholder Rights

The title to the Sale Shares is transferred when the Shares are paid for and recorded in the investor’s book-entry account. The Sale Shares carry rights equal to all other Shares in the Company and will entitle their holders to dividend and other distributions of funds as well as other rights related to the Shares as of the title has been transferred to him or her. The Issue Shares carry rights equal to all other Shares in the Company and will entitle their holders to dividend and other distributions of funds as well as other rights related to the Shares after the Issue Shares have been registered in the Trade Register on or about 13 March 2015. Rights related to Issue Shares may be used when the Shares are recorded in the investor’s book-entry system.

Each Share entitles to one vote in the Company’s General Meeting of Shareholders.

Transfer Tax and Other Expenses

No transfer tax is payable for subscribing for Issue Shares. Account operators charge a brokerage fee in accordance with their price lists for the maintenance of the book-entry account and for depositing shares.

The Sale Shares shall be sold on a multilateral trading facility in the same instance when trading with the new Shares commences on the First North marketplace, and no transfer tax shall be payable for these trades. The Selling Shareholders shall pay the transfer tax that may possibly be levied when Shares are transferred in connection with the Share Sale.

Trading in the Shares

The Company will submit a listing application with NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd (the “Helsinki Stock Exchange“) to list the Shares on the multilateral First North Finland marketplace (“First North“) maintained by the Helsinki Stock Exchange. The share trading is expected to commence on First North on or about 16 March 2015. The share trading code of the Shares is DETEC and ISIN code FI4000115464. Nordea acts as the certified advisor referred to in the First North Nordic Rulebook.

When the trading on First North commences on or about 16 March 2015, all Offer Shares issued or sold in the Offering have not necessarily been fully transferred to the investors’ book-entry accounts. When a broker receives an order to sell Shares on First North, the broker shall with due care ensure that the amount of Shares in question has been allocated to the investor.

Right to Cancel the Offering

The Board of Directors of the Company is entitled to cancel the Offering at any time prior to the execution of the Offering due to, among other reasons, a material change in the market conditions, the Company’s financial position or the Company’s business. If the Board of Directors decides to cancel the Offering, the paid subscription prices will be refunded to subscribers approximately in three (3) banking days after the decision by the Board of Directors. If the investor’s bank account is in another financial institution than the subscription place, the refund will be paid to a Finnish bank account in accordance with the payment schedule of the financial institutions, approximately no more than two (2) banking days later. No interest will be paid on such repaid funds.

Other Issues
