Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide the buyback of Company shares

In accordance with a proposal by the Board of Directors, the AGM authorized the
Board to decide the purchase of the Company's own shares ('Buyback
authorization') under the following terms:

Under this Buyback authorization, the Board shall be authorized to decide the
purchase of and/or take as security a maximum of 2,000,000 Company shares using
the Company's unrestricted equity. The number of shares shall be equivalent to
approximately 0.78% of the Company's total shares.

Shares may be purchased in one or more lots. The purchase price shall be at
least the lowest price paid for Company shares in regulated trading at the time
of purchase and no more than the highest price paid for Company shares in
regulated trading at the time of purchase. In connection with the buyback of
Company shares, derivative, share lending, or other agreements that are normal
within the framework of capital markets may take place in accordance with
legislative and regulatory requirements and at a price determined by the market.
The authorization shall allow the Board to decide to purchase shares otherwise
than in proportion to shareholders' current holdings (directed buyback).

Shares so purchased can be used as consideration in possible acquisitions or in
other arrangements that are part of the Company's business, to finance
investments, as part of the Company's incentive program, or be retained,
conveyed, or cancelled by the Company.

The Board of Directors shall decide the other terms related to the buyback of
Company shares. The Buyback authorization shall remain in force for eighteen
(18) months from the decision taken by the AGM.

Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide the conveyance of treasury shares

In accordance with a proposal by the Board of Directors, the AGM authorized the
Board to decide the conveyance of the treasury shares held by the Company under
the following terms:

Under this authorization, the Board shall be authorized to take one or more
decisions concerning the distribution of the treasury shares held by the
Company, with the proviso that the number of shares thereby conveyed totals a
maximum of 2,000,000 shares, equivalent to approximately 0.78% of all the
Company's shares.

The treasury shares held by the Company can be distributed to the Company's
shareholders in proportion to the shares they already own or via a directed
share issue that bypasses shareholders' pre-emptive rights if the Company has a
weighty financial reason for doing so, such as using the shares in question as
consideration in possible acquisitions or in other arrangements that are part of
the Company's business, to finance investments, or as part of the Company's
incentive program.

The treasury shares held by the Company can be conveyed against payment or
distributed free of charge. A directed share issue can only be made free of
charge if there is a particularly weighty financial reason, in respect of the
Company's interests and those of all its shareholders, for doing so.

The Board will also be responsible for the other terms and conditions of a share
issue. The authorization shall remain in force until 30 June 2017.

Availability of the minutes for review

The minutes of the Annual General Meeting shall be available for review in two
weeks from the Annual General Meeting at the company's headquarters.
