In accordance with the proposal of the Board, the AGM resolved to authorize the Board to resolve, on one or several occasions before the next AGM, on an issue of shares and/or convertible bonds. Such issue may entail a deviation from the shareholders’ preferential right to subscribe for new shares and/or convertible bonds and also entail that payment of the new shares and/or convertible bonds may be made in cash or by consideration in kind or by right of set-off. The number of shares and/or convertible bonds to be issued by virtue of the authorization shall not exceed 10 percent of the registered share capital (as per the date of the resolution on the issue of new shares and/or convertible bonds).
