This Supplement (the Supplement) to the Offering Circular (the Offering Circular) dated 30 October 2019, which comprises a base prospectus for the purposes of the Prospectus Regulation, constitutes a supplement to the prospectus for the purposes of Article 23 of the Prospectus Regulation and is prepared in connection with the €2,000,000,000 Global Medium Term Note Programme (the Programme) established by Swedish Match AB (publ) (the Issuer).  Terms defined in the Offering Circular have the same meaning when used in this Supplement. When used in this Supplement, Prospectus Regulation means Regulation (EU) 2017/1129.

This Supplement is supplemental to, and should be read in conjunction with, the Offering Circular and any other supplements to the Offering Circular issued by the Issuer.

The Issuer accepts responsibility for the information contained in this Supplement.  To the best of the knowledge of the Issuer (which has taken all reasonable care to ensure that such is the case) the information contained in this Supplement is in accordance with the facts and does not omit anything likely to affect the import of such information.

Purpose of the Supplement

The purpose of this Supplement is (a) to incorporate by reference the Issuer's unaudited consolidated interim financial statements as at and for the twelve month period ended 31 December 2019, (b) to incorporate the sections titled "Other events during the quarter", "Events after the reporting period" and "Product segments summary and key ratios" on pages 12, 13 and 15, respectively, of the Issuer's Full Year Report, (c) to incorporate by reference pages 52 to 53 (inclusive) and page 55 of the Issuer's Annual Report 2018 and (d) to update the no significant or material change statement for the Issuer and the Issuer and its subsidiaries (the Group).

Any non-incorporated parts of a document referred to in this Supplement are either deemed not relevant for an investor or are otherwise covered elsewhere in the Offering Circular.
