Decision on authorization


It was decided that the General Meeting will authorize the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares, options and other special rights, in one or several issues, so that the total number of new shares may be 12,600,000 at the maximum.

Based on the authorization the Board of Directors may decide on issuance of shares to the shareholders according to the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription rights as well as in a directed issuance of shares or stock options or other special rights in deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription rights in case the deviation is justified by a weighty financial reason for the company, such as financing of an acquisition, other arrangement concerning the business of the company or development of its capital structure, or incentive to the company's personnel.

The Board of Directors will be authorized to decide on other terms and conditions related to the share issues and to the issuance of option or other special rights. The authorization is in force until the end of the 2012 AGM. This authorization supersedes the authorization decided by the AGM in the previous year.
