READING, UNITED KINGDOM (28 March 2017) — Convatec Group Plc ("Convatec" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the proposed appointment of Mr Kasim Kutay as a NonExecutive Director of the Board.

TMr Kutay has been nominated for appointment to the Board by Novo A/S, following their agreement to acquire a 19.95% shareholding in the Company from Nordic Capital and Avista (as defined below), as announced separately by Nordic Capital and Avista. The proposed appointment has been approved by the Company's Nomination Committee and Board and will take effect from completion of the sale of shares by Nordic and Avista to Novo A/S.

Mr Kutay is the Chief Executive Officer of Novo A/S, the investment holding company of the Novo Nordisk Foundation, a charitable foundation focused on contributing significantly to research and development that improves the health and welfare of people.

Mr Kutay is also currently a director of Novo Nordisk A/S and Novozymes B A/S, both of which are companies incorporated in Denmark and listed on the Nasdaq Nordic Index. There are no other disclosures to be made under rule 9.6.13R of the Listing Rules in relation to Mr Kutay.

In addition, the Company confirms that at least one Nordic Capital or Avista nominated director will resign from the Board from completion of the sale of shares by Nordic and Avista to Novo A/S. Further details will be provided in due course.

The Board anticipates appointing a further independent Non-Executive Director in due course; in making this appointment, it will look to increase the level of diversity of the Board, in line with one of the objectives set out in the Chairman's governance letter in the Annual Report.

Sir Christopher Gent, Chairman, commented:

“I am pleased to welcome Kasim to the Board of Convatec. Kasim is a highly experienced finance and healthcare professional who I am sure will make a valuable contribution to the Board and the future development of the Company.
