Bergen, Norway - 26 August 2021 - Proximar Seafood AS (EURONEXT: PROXI) today
reported its first-half year 2021 results. Proximar is in a project development
phase and consequently had no income in the first half. The net loss was NOK
19.4 million, compared to a loss of NOK 2.8 million in the first half of 2020,
as the project activity has ramped up as planned.

"We are pleased with the progress made in the first half of 2021, and despite
the pandemic, we have proceeded according to schedule and estimated cost when it
comes to the construction of our first land-based recirculation facility in
Oyama Town, Shizuoka in Japan," says Joachim Nielsen, CEO of Proximar Seafood.
"We have strengthened both our administrative and operational team and will
continue our recruitment process going forward to secure a smooth production
start in the third quarter 2022."

Concrete works at the facility in Oyama Town are ongoing for both the Hatchery
and Nursery building as well as the Post Smolt Grow-out building. The first
layers of pipes have been delivered by Aqua Maof and have been installed and
tested. In June, Proximar signed a contract with HighComp for the delivery of
all fish tanks and harvest channels.

In April, Proximar received Dark Green shading rating from CICERO Shades of
Green, both at a company level and with regards to debt financing. CICERO
provides independent, research-based evaluations of green bond investment
frameworks to determine their environmental robustness. Its second opinions are
graded Dark Green, Medium Green and Light Green to offer investors better
insight into the environmental quality of green debt.

"We are very proud to be the first company in our industry to receive the
darkest shading and will strive to maintain this high standard. We consider this
important for our future sales and marketing and are also pleased to see that
ESG is becoming important for Japanese banks and financial institutions," says
Nielsen.

Proximar signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Marubeni Corporation in
May with regards to a potential sales and marketing agreement. Marubeni is one
of the largest general trading companies in Japan, with 136 branches and offices
in 68 countries. Proximar considers this a validation of its plans and
confirmation of the interest in its future product. The intention of the MOU is
to agree on an off-take strategy, which is an important part of the long-term
financing in Japan.

Proximar's cash balance stood at NOK 98 million as per 30 June 2021. The company
raised NOK 400 million in a private placement in January and is working with
Japanese banks and financial institutions to obtain long-term financing. The
pace of the negotiations has been hampered by the pandemic and ensuing travel
restrictions which could impact the schedule, but Proximar remains optimistic on
the prospects of securing an attractive long-term financing structure.

"We are encouraged by the feedback we get from sources in the Japanese market,
which supports our view on the market potential of our fish due to its
freshness, Mt Fuji location, clear ESG profile and local origin. Our belief in a
premium pricing potential is also confirmed. We therefore retain a positive
outlook on the prospects for our farming facility and move towards operational
start-up with confidence and enthusiasm," Nielsen concludes.

half of 2021 attached.

Proximar Seafood will present its financial results for the first half of 2021
on Thursday 26 August 2021, at 09:30 CEST. The investor presentation will be
streamed and will be hosted by CEO Joachim Nielsen and CFO Pål K. Grimsrud. The
