On 3 September 2012 Sampo received a notification of change in holdings pursuant to Chapter 2, Section 9 of the Securities Markets Act according to which the total number of Sampo A shares and related voting rights owned by Capital Group Companies, Inc. had exceeded one twentieth (1/20) of Sampo plc's entire stock and voting rights.

Previously Capital Research and Management Company (CRMC) and Capital Group International, Inc. (CGII), members of the Capital Group Companies, Inc., reported holdings separately based on an exemption granted by the Finnish Financial Supervision Authority on 12 September 2007 (J No 13/2230/2007). As a result of the corporate re-organization effective on 1 September 2012, the exemption no longer applies to CRMC and CGII. Consequently, The Capital Group Companies, Inc. now reports its holdings in their entirety and its holding amounted, according to the disclosure, to 6.48 per cent of the total number of shares and to 6.42 per cent of the related votes.
