Election of Chairman of the Meeting (item 1)

The Board proposes that lawyer (and Board member) Erik Nerpin be elected
Chairman of the Extraordinary General Meeting.

Resolution regarding reduction of share capital for repayment to shareholders
(item 6)
The Board proposes that the Meeting resolve to reduce the Company’s share
capital by a maximum of SEK 4,929,855.50 by cancelling a maximum of 9,859,711
shares, each with a quotient value of SEK 0.50. The purpose of the reduction is
a repayment to the Company’s shareholders in the total amount of not more than
SEK 118 316 532. This reduction is to be executed on the basis of voluntary
redemption, whereby the shares that are ultimately cancelled correspond to those
shares for which cancelling has been requested by the Company’s shareholders.
The right to request cancelling accrues to shareholders who have redemption
rights. Each shareholder is to receive one (1) redemption right per share held
(regardless of series of share) and three (3) redemption rights entitle the
shareholder to request redemption of one (1) share (regardless of series of
share) in the Company.

The record day for receiving redemption rights is Thursday, February 7, 2013.
The notification period to request redemption is between Tuesday, February 12
and Tuesday, March 5, 2013. Redemption rights are intended to be traded on the
NASDAQ OMX Stockholm between Tuesday, February 12 and Thursday, February 28,
2013. Recipients of redemption rights will be entitled to sell a maximum of
1,000 redemption rights, commission free. For each redeemed share, the
shareholder will receive cash payment of SEK 12. The portion of the redemption
amount exceeding the quotient value of the share will be deducted from the
Company’s non-restricted shareholders’ equity. The redemption amount will be
paid as soon as the Swedish Companies Registration Office has registered the
decision of a reduction in share capital in accordance with this item and an
increase in share capital in accordance with item 7 below, the proposed stock
dividend, which is expected to take place around March 20, 2013. Furthermore,
the Board proposes that the decision be subject to the condition of the Meeting
also resolving on a stock dividend in accordance with the proposed terms
stipulated in item 7 below. The Board believes that the reduction in share
capital can be implemented without the permission of the Swedish Companies
Registration Office, or a general court, since the Company is to simultaneously
implement a stock dividend, which will entail that neither the Company’s
restricted shareholders’ equity nor its share capital will be reduced.

Resolution regarding stock dividend (item 7)
To enable the reduction in share capital in accordance with item 6 above without
the permission of the Swedish Companies Registration Office or, in disputable
cases, at a general court, the Board proposes that the Company implement a stock
dividend simultaneously with the redemption, on the basis of which the Company’s
share capital is restored to a minimum of the amount that the share capital
totaled prior to the reduction. Accordingly, the Board proposes that the Meeting
resolve on a stock dividend under which the Company’s share capital is to
increase by SEK 4,929,855.50 on the basis of a transfer from non-restricted
shareholders’ equity. The stock dividend is to take place without issuing new
shares and entails that the quotient value of the share will be raised.

Other information
In order to be valid, the proposals regarding the reduction in share capital in
accordance with item 6 require that a resolution is supported by shareholders
holding at least two thirds of both the votes and the shares represented at the
Meeting. A decision regarding the reduction in share capital also requires that
the Meeting resolve on a stock dividend in accordance with item 7, which
requires a simple majority of the both the votes and the shares represented at
the Meeting. At the time of the summons, the number of shares in the Company is
29,597,133 shares, of which 1,437,876 Series A shares (1 vote) and 28,141,257
Series B shares (1/10 of a vote). The total number of votes is 4,252,001.7.

The Board’s complete proposed resolution will be available at the Company’s
offices as well as on the Company website www.diamyd.com, from January 10, 2013,
and will be sent to those shareholders who so request.
