The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorise the
Board of Directors to decide on the acquisition of a maximum of 5 900 000 of the
Company's own shares in one or more tranches by using distributable funds. Such
share acquisition reduces the Company's distributable unrestricted shareholders'
equity.

The shares may be acquired in order to develop the Company's capital structure,
to be used as payment in corporate acquisitions or when the Company acquires
assets related to its business and as part of the Company's incentive programmes
in a manner and to the extent decided by the Board of Directors, and to be
transferred for other purposes, or to be cancelled.

The shares may be acquired in accordance with the Board of Directors' decision
either through public trading, in which case the shares would be acquired in
another proportion than that of the current shareholders, or by a public offer
at market prices at the time of purchase.

The Board of Directors is authorised to resolve on all other terms and
conditions regarding the acquisition of own shares. It is proposed that the
authorisation be effective for a period of 18 months from the decision of the
Annual General Meeting. The authorisation granted to the Board of Directors
regarding acquisition of the Company's own shares in the previous Annual General
Meeting shall expire simultaneously.

16. Proposal by the Board of Directors to authorise the Board of Directors to
decide on the issuance of shares and special rights entitling to shares

The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorise the
Board of Directors to decide to issue new shares and to convey the Company's own
shares held by the Company in one or more tranches. The share issue can be
carried out as a share issue against payment or without consideration on terms
to be determined by the Board of Directors and in relation to a share issue
against payment at a price to be determined by the Board of Directors.

The authorisation also includes the right to issue special rights, in the
meaning of Chapter 10 Section 1 of the Companies Act, which entitle to the
Company's new shares or the Company's own shares held by the Company against
consideration.

A maximum of 11 800 000 new shares can be issued. A maximum of 5 900 000 own
shares held by the Company can be conveyed.

The Board of Directors proposes that the authorisation comprise a right to
deviate from the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription right provided that the
Company has an important financial reason for the deviation in a share issue
against payment and provided that the Company taking into account the interest
of all its shareholders has a particularly important financial reason for the
deviation in a share issue without consideration. The authorisation can within
the above mentioned limits be used e.g. in order to strengthen the Company's
capital structure, to broaden the Company's ownership, to be used as payment in
corporate acquisitions or when the Company acquires assets relating to its
business and as part of the Company's incentive programmes. It is proposed that
shares may also be subscribed for or own shares conveyed against contribution in
kind or by means of set-off.

In addition the authorisation includes the right to decide on a share issue
without consideration to the Company itself so that the amount of own shares
held by the Company after the share issue is a maximum of one tenth (1/10) of
all shares in the Company. Pursuant to Chapter 15 Section 11 Subsection 1 of the
Companies Act, all own shares held by the Company and its subsidiaries are
included in this amount.

The Board of Directors is authorised to resolve on all other terms and
conditions regarding the issuance or conveyance of shares and special rights
entitling to shares.

It is proposed that the authorisation shall be effective for a period of 18
months from the decision of the Annual General Meeting. The authorisation
granted to the Board of Directors regarding issuing shares in the previous
Annual General Meeting shall expire simultaneously.
