The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on March 30, 2023, that a dividend of EUR 0.01 (0.00) per share be paid. Last year’s corresponding period is shown in parentheses. OUTLOOK FOR 2023 Dovre Group`s net sales are expected to improve from 2022 and the operating profit (EBIT) is expected to be about the same as in 2022. CEO ARVE JENSEN: “The year 2022 was successful for Dovre Group. Our net sales were at higher than ever at EUR 203 million. The biggest share of our top-line growth came from the Renewable Energy business area, which consists of Suvic Oy's business acquired in March 2021. In addition to that, our two other segments, Project Personnel and Consulting also increased their sales significantly. For the full year, Renewable Energy increased its net sales by 87%, Project Personnel by 19%, and Consulting by 13%. Despite the strong growth, we were also able to maintain our good level of profitability. The full year operating profit margin stood at 4.2%. We also saw good growth in Q4 2022. In Q4, our net sales increased by 13.6% to EUR 48 million, and the operating profit margin rose to 4.5%. Development in Q4 was mainly driven by the favourable expansion of the Renewable Energy business with the growth of 31%, but also by the solid growth in the Consulting business. In Project Personnel, the year-to-year Q4 growth was small due to the effect of the large Johan Castberg project in Singapore that peaked in Q4 2021. As a result of the energy crises, the demand has grown in all our business segments. The growth in our Project Personnel and Consulting business has been supported by increased demand for our services especially in Norway. In addition to Norway, we saw strong growth in Consulting Finland. eSite, an industrial reality capture business specialising in digitalisation and 3D modelling of plants, was acquired in 2021 to strengthen our service offering, and has played an important role in this growth, as planned. By geographical market area, our sales increased significantly in Americas. I am pleased to tell you, that the increase in sales was achieved by organic growth in all three business areas. For example, Project Personnel in Norway cooperated with our partners to secure a new frame agreement with Aibel AS, a leading service company operating in the oil, gas, and offshore wind industries. In addition, several existing Project Personnel and Consulting clients used their options to extend agreements. In Singapore we had a busy start with the completion of the Johan Castberg floating production project during the first quarter. This was the largest project we have worked on in the region. Also, our unit in North America completed one of its largest assignments, the Nalcors Lower Churchill project, part of Canada´s largest hydropower system. We also have participated in a renewable project with the conversion of a petroleum refinery to renewable diesel and aviation fuel in Newfoundland, Canada. Among the highlights of the year 2022 was also Suvic winning the tender for the Viiatti windmill park project, one of the largest in Finland, with a total of 57 turbines in total. During 2022 Suvic was involved in building ten different windmill parks in Finland. In the mid to long-term, the energy demand will grow, the environmental targets will be tightened, and the need to become less dependent on imported fuel particularly in Europe will strengthen. This is forcing governments and the private sector to seek new energy-efficient solutions, which we believe will support the growth of all our business areas. However, in the short term, our operating environment continues to possess concerns, such as the current geopolitical situation, high inflation, and high oil prices. In addition, new legislation in Norway regarding the temporary hire of personnel will be implemented in Q2. We are currently addressing this together with our clients to ensure compliance. After very high post-pandemic growth in both revenue and operating profit in 2022 we expect the 2023 growth numbers to return to more normal levels. Forecasting the business performance for the year 2023 is more challenging than usually. Mainly because of the new legislation, Norway will introduce April 1st, which regulates the usage of temporary employees in various situations. It is unclear at this time what the impact will be on white collar employees, which are typically the class of employees that Dovre’s Project Personnel and Consulting are contracting out. The second uncertainty is created by Suvic's sales cycle for which forecasting for the current year in mid-February is somewhat too early when negotiations have yet not been fully completed for the coming summer. In the coming year, we continue executing our strategy for profitable growth with a strong focus on energy transition and renewable energy. “ GROUP’S KEY FIGURES New windmill park agreements On February 3, 2022, Suvic Oy announced a significant turn-key construction project to build the Kalistanneva windmill park. The contract consists of building the infrastructure for 30 windmills, including roads, lifting platforms, foundations, a 33/110 kV power station and 33 kV internal grid ground works. The work commenced in April 2022 and is expected to be completed by December 2023. On February 10, 2022, Suvic announced the signing of another significant turn-key construction project to build the Matkussaari windmill park. In conjunction with the previously announced Kalistanneva windmill park, the two wind farms form the Viiatti project, with a combined capacity of 313.5 MW. The- Matkussaari contract consists of building the infrastructure for 27 windmills, including roads, lifting platforms, foundations, a 33/110 kV power station and 33 kV internal grid ground works. The installed capacity will be 148,5 MW. The work commenced in April 2022 and is expected to be mainly completed by December 2023. The last task to be performed during 2024 will be connecting the 33 kV cabling to the windmills. On October 5, 2022, Suvic announced the signing of a design and construction agreement for constructing the foundations for two new wind farms in Ostrobothnia, Isokangas and Palokangas, in the municipality of Ii. The farms will be a combined 17 windmills with a total capacity of 100 MW. The design work will start by the end of 2022 and the construction work will commence in the spring of 2023. New frame agreement in Norway On May 2, 2022, Dovre Group announced that, in cooperation with its partners Engineering Consults Norway and Future Technology, it has secured a frame agreement with Aibel AS in Norway. The scope of work is consultancy services and includes the hire of temporary personnel within project/multidiscipline, construction, commissioning, supply chain, economy, ICT and administrative disciplines. The frame agreement is valid for 2 years with option to extend the agreement 3 times by 2 years, i.e. a maximum 8 years. NET SALES Net sales in Q4 In Q4, Dovre Group’s net sales increased by 13.6% to EUR 48.1 (42.3) million. Net sales increased mainly due to growth in Renewable Energy.

Year-on-year fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates had only minor impact on the Group’s net sales in 2022.

Both authorizations cover a maximum of 10,100,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately maximum of 9.5% of the total number of shares in the company. The authorizations are valid until June 30, 2023 and revoke the previously granted, corresponding authorizations. During the review period, Dovre Group Plc's Board of Directors did not use the aforementioned authorizations. The decisions of the General Meeting are available in full at Dovre's website at https://www.dovregroup.com/investors/share-and-ownership BUSINESS SEASONALITY Dovre Group’s Renewable Energy business has stronger seasonality than the other two businesses due to the fact that most of its projects are carried out during the summer months. As the segments fixed costs spread evenly throughout the year, its operating profit is seasonally at its lowest in Q1 and at its highest in Q3. The Project Personnel and Consulting businesses are carried out more evenly during the year with limited seasonal variations. SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES In the Project Personnel business area, the Group’s most significant risks include the cyclicality of its clients’ business. Market developments in Norway are particularly important for Project Personnel due to the business area’s strong position in the Norwegian market. In 2023, a new law regarding the temporary hire of personnel will be implemented in Q2. The effects of this can be negative as some Dovre Group´s clients will choose to employ staff rather than use consultants. In addition, expansion into new client segments requires expenditure and includes risks. The business area’s other challenges include maintaining its competitiveness and profitability. The Project Personnel business is project-based by nature, thus adding an element of uncertainty to forecasting. From time to time, there may be a local dependence on one major project or client. Dovre Group is responsible for the work performed by its consultants. However, the company has no overall responsibility for project delivery. In the Consulting business area, general economic uncertainty does not have as direct an impact on the demand for the Group’s services. This is mainly due to the fact that one of the Group’s main clients, the Norwegian public sector, aims to invest counter-cyclically. Project delivery involves minor risks due to both clients and the Group’s own personnel, such as project delays or loss of key personnel. The new law for temporary hires as mentioned above will also have an impact on part of Consulting Norway clients. In the Renewable Energy business area, Suvic’s normal operations correspond to various contractual risks depending on the differences in the scopes of work. These risks are mainly mitigated through performance and various guarantees and insurances. Dovre Group holds a minority share in SaraRasa Bioindo Pte. Ltd. (Bioindo), a company that produces pellets from wood residue. Bioindo’s production unit is in Indonesia and is thus exposed to high country risk. Other significant risks include risks relating to commercial agreements, especially feedstock purchase and end-product sale agreements. The Group’s reporting currency is the euro. The Group’s most important functional currencies are the Norwegian crown, the Canadian dollar, the Singaporean dollar, and the US dollar. Although the Group’s sales and corresponding expenses are mainly in the same currency, currency fluctuations can affect the Group’s net sales and operating result. Foreign currency denominated assets and liabilities can also result in foreign exchange gains or losses. In addition to the above, the current geopolitical situation, high inflation, and high energy prices are also adding risk to our business. Forecasting the business performance for the year 2023 is more challenging than usually. Mainly because of the new legislation Norway will introduce April 1st, which regulates the usage of temporary employees in various situations. It is unclear at this time what the impact will be on white collar employees, which are typically the class of employees that Dovre’s Project and Consulting are contracting out. The second uncertainty is created by Suvic's sales cycle for which forecasting for the current year in mid-February is somewhat too early when negotiations have yet not been fully completed for the coming summer. OTHER EVENTS DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD Sararasa pellet off-take agreement On October 14, 2022, Dovre Group announced that its 19.9% owned associated company SaraRasa Bioindo Pte. Ltd. had agreed with Cellmark Ab to supply the majority of its production of pellets for a two-year period starting from December 2022 and ending in December 2024 for the Korean market using Cellmark's services. The agreement is fixed price, and the contract is valued at approximately 14 million euros. This new off-take agreement replaces the previous agreement announced on July 25, 2019, between the same parties. Dovre Group Plc presents its ownership in SaraRasa Bioindo Pte.Ltd as a financial asset at fair value through profit and loss. Two positive profit warnings in 2022 Dovre Group issued two positive profit warnings, on August 2, 2022, and October 25, 2022. The reason for raising the guidance in August was that the demand for Dovre's services was expected to maintain its level in the second half of the year. In October the guidance was raised due to the continued strong demand for Dovre's services in Project Personnel and Consulting, and also due to the solid execution of Suvic in its Renewable Energy construction projects. A warning and fine imposed to Dovre Group Plc for breaching the Rules of the Exchange On December 1, 2022, the Disciplinary Committee of Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd imposed a warning and a fine of EUR 40,000 to Dovre Group Plc due to the breaches of the Nordic Main Market Rulebook for Issuers of Shares of Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. Dovre Group Plc breached the Rules on the disclosure of inside information when announcing agreements of its subsidiary Suvic Oy in May and October 2021. Furthermore, the Company breached the Rules on organizing the administration of the listed company. Dovre Group takes compliance with the Exchange's rules very seriously and has taken the necessary measures to avoid similar situations in the future. EVENTS AFTER THE REPORTING PERIOD On 3 February 2023, Dovre Group issued a positive profit warning. Dovre Group’s net sales for 2022 is expected to be EUR 203 million and operating profit EUR 8.5 million. The operating profit exceeds the previous guidance’s minimum operating profit by over 15 percent. The main reason for the improved figures is steady development in all segments including in Q4. OUTLOOK FOR 2023 Dovre Group`s net sales are expected to improve from 2022 and the operating profit (EBIT) is expected to be about the same as in 2022. . On December 31, 2022, the parent company’s distributable funds were EUR 18,781,604.44 The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on March 30, 2023, that a dividend of EUR 0.01 (0.00) per share be paid.

The Group does not allocate the parent company’s intra-Group charges to segments for the purposes of segment reporting. NET SALES Acquisitions in 2021 Suvic Oy On March 31, 2021, Dovre Group acquired a majority shareholding (51%) in the Finnish windmill park construction and construction design company Suvic Oy. Suvic specialises in contracting for wind farms and project management contracting in both wind power and industrial construction. The debt-free and cash-free purchase price of the arrangement was approximately EUR 3.1 million, of which EUR 2 million was paid in cash. In addition, a total of 3 million Dovre Group Plc shares were transferred to Suvic's sellers, which will be issued by Dovre Group in a share issue to sellers. The subscription price of approximately EUR 1.1 was fully recorded in Dovre Group's invested unrestricted equity fund. The costs of advisory and expert services related to the transaction, approximately EUR 51 thousand, have been included in other operating expenses in the income statement. The costs related to the directed share issue, approximately EUR 45 thousand, have been recorded in the invested unrestricted equity fund. The acquisition resulted in a business value of EUR 3.3 million. The acquisition expands Dovre's renewable energy expertise in the Nordic countries. Dovre's strategy is to support the company's existing customers in the energy and oil and gas sectors with their renewable energy projects and to build new customer relationships in the industry. The acquisition of Suvic is an important step in the implementation of this growth strategy in the renewable energy sector. The effect of the acquired business since the acquisition date has been EUR 11.2 million on the Group's net sales and EUR -0.1 million on the result for the financial year. If the acquisition had taken place on 1 January 2021, the effect on the Group's net sales would have been EUR 13.9 million and on the result EUR -0.5 million. eSite In August 2021, the Dovre Group acquired eSite's businesses from the energy company Fortum. eSite is a reality capture start-up company that specializes in 3D-imaging of industrial sites. The acquired virtualisation service has expanded Dovre's Project Personnel offering, and it has been combined with the Group's project management software. The acquisition did not have a material impact on Dovre's 2021 results or financial position. The goodwill arising from the acquired business of EUR 0.3 million is included in Consulting's goodwill. 4. GOODWILL The annual impairment test of all cash-generating units is performed at the end of the year. For Project Personnel, in addition to goodwill, an NPC trademark with an unlimited useful life is tested. The book value of the trademark was approximately EUR 1.3 million on December 31, 2022 (EUR 1.3 million on December 31, 2021). In testing, the carrying amount of a cash-generating unit is compared with its value in use, which is based on a calculation of its value in use. These calculations are based on management-approved plans covering a five-year period. The key variables used in the calculation are revenue growth and operating margin. The variables are based on past performance, the business area's market position, and growth potential in the business area's market. The discount rate is determined using a capital structure based on peer group balance sheets and financial statements, following the IAS Lease Standard. Based on testing, the recoverable amounts of all cash-generating units exceeded their carrying amounts and, therefore, no indications of impairment exist. Key variables 5. LEASES Dovre Group’s right-to-use assets are office leases and site equipment. Office leases are included in the balance sheet item Fixed assets, buildings. Leased construction equipment is included in the balance sheet item Fixed assets, machinery, and equipment. The majority of office leases are fixed-term agreements, and some of these agreements include an option to extend the agreement periodically. Dovre has assessed the use of the leases to determine whether the options of leases will be used. Contracts that are valid for an indefinite period with a notice period of 3 to 12 months have a probable lease term of 2 to 4 years. Suvic Oy, a subsidiary of the Renewable Energy business area, also has leased construction equipment. The agreements are for a fixed period of 3 to 5 years. Unquoted equity investment Unquoted equity investment includes Dovre Group Plc’s ownership in SaraRasa Bioindo Pte. Ltd. (Bioindo). Dovre Group Plc’s ownership was 19.86% at year-end 2022. Dovre Group’s investment in Bioindo is not part of the Group’s core business. The category of the investment’s fair value measurement is Level 3. The audited equity of Bioindo was USD 2.5 million at year-end 2021 (USD 1.3 million at year-end 2020). The estimated unaudited 2022 result was approximately USD 0.0 (0.6 in 2021) million. SaraRasa has agreed to supply its entire production of pellets until January 2024. In October 2022, SaraRasa Bioindo Pte. Ltd had agreed with Cellmark Ab to supply the majority of its production of pellets for a two-year period starting from December 2022 and ending in December 2024 for the Korean market using Cellmark's services. The agreement is fixed price, and the contract is valued at about EUR 14 million. Fund investments Fund investments include the mutual fund units of Dovre's subsidiary Suvic Oy. The category of the investment’s fair value measurement is Level 1. 7. TRADE AND OTHER RECEIVABLES Other accrued expenses include accruals for operating expenses. The book values of the receivables are based on a reasonable estimate of their fair value. Allowance for losses on trade receivables is recorded using a simplified model based on the age of overdue receivables. Allowance for losses on trade receivables is recorded if the receivable is more than 90 days past due, the receivable has been actively collected without success, and according to the management's assessment, the receivable is unlikely to be collected. The amount of impairment of trade receivables realised during the last 10 years has averaged EUR 12 thousand, which is an average of 0.07% of trade receivables. Aging analysis of trade receivables The increase in company mortgages is due to counter-guarantees given to credit institutions. Counter-guarantees have been issued to increase Suvic Oy's bank and delivery guarantee limit. *) Comparable data have been updated. **) Suvic Oy's corporate mortgages have been given as collateral for commitments given by the group's parent company. Disputes and court proceedings The subsidiary of the Group, Suvic Oy, has litigation pending in court, in which the Company has claims and the opposing party has counterclaims against the Company. The Company’s claims concern the scope and quality of the delivery of the contract. The Company’s legal position is strong, but the handling of the cases takes time and it is difficult to assess the final outcome. 12. GROUP QUARTERLY INFORMATION
