Pealkiri Tallinna Sadam audited Annual Report 2020 and dividend proposal
The supervisory board of AS Tallinna Sadam (hereinafter: "Tallinna Sadam")
approved the audited annual report for 2020 presented by the management board.
There are no differences in the audited financial results, compared to the 12-
month unaudited financial results disclosed on 26 February 2021.

In  2020, the  annual  revenue  of  Tallinna  Sadam  group was EUR 107.4 million
(-17.8%)  and adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR 58.4 million (-21.4%). Despite the
pandemic,  the profit  for 2020 was  EUR 28.5 million  (-35.8%). Adjusted EBITDA
margin  decreased  by  2.5 percentage  points,  but  the  volume  of investments
increased to EUR 37.1 million (+26%).

According to Valdo Kalm, Chairman of the Management Board of Tallinna Sadam, the
negative  impact  of  the  pandemic  on  the  company's  financial  results  was
particularly  noticeable  in  the  Passenger  harnours  segment, but the overall
impact of the virus on the Group's finances was smaller than feared and the year
ended  with a strong profit given  the circumstances. ?The year 2020 proved that
the  business strategy with  diversified risks and  the contribution to the four
business  directions is justified. In a  situation where the business related to
passengers  decreased by almost  half, we are  able to meet  the expectations of
investors and continue with the promised dividend policy, i.e. pay at least 70%
of the previous year's profit for dividends," explained Kalm.

Kalm  says that the large drop in  the number of passengers has been compensated
by  the  highest  cargo  volume  of  the  last  five years, the sales revenue of
passenger  ferries and  icebreaker Botnica,  which have  all remained  at levels
comparable  to  2019. "The  resulting  stable  cash  flow  and confidence in the
recovery of the passenger business have also enabled us to continue investing in
passenger  services and infrastructure despite the crisis, especially in the Old
City  Harbour,  where  we  have  introduced  innovative environmentally friendly
solutions  such  as  automatic  mooring  and  on-shore  power supply. This year,
despite  the slump in the passenger  segment, several passenger service and real
estate  development  projects  in  the  Old  City  Harbour  will be completed or
continued, including the cruise terminal, the front square of the Terminal D and
the pedestrian bridge of the Admiralty Canal," added Kalm.

Based  on the aforesaid and the dividend  policy approved by the general meeting
of  shareholders to  pay a  dividend at  least 70% of  the profits from 2021 and
forward,  the management board, with the approval of the supervisory board, will
propose  to the general meeting of shareholders  to pay a dividend of EUR 0.077
per share in 2021, totaling EUR 20.251 million.

Material  dates related  to the  payment of  dividends will  be disclosed in the
notice of the general meeting by the end of April the latest.
