Jon Brandsar, born 1954, was former board member of Arise between 2008 and 2013.
Jon Brandsar is Executive Vice President Wind Power and Technologies in
Statkraft AS with responsibility for onshore wind power, offshore wind power,
district heating, innovation, small scale hydropower. Jon Brandsar has
previously i.e. been Group Chief Executive, Trondheim Energiverk, (2002–2003);

Engineering, (1994–1995); and Department Manager, ABB, (1977–1994). Jon Brandsar
holds a degree in electrical engineering GIH Gjøvik (1977).

Peter Gyllenhammar, born 1953, is i.e. Chairman of International Fibres Group
AB, board member in Bronsstädet AB, Galjaden Fastigheter AB and is former board
member of i.e. Catella AB (publ) (2008-2012). Peter Gyllenhammar is working

At the AGM 2013 Öhrlings PricewaterhouseCoopers AB was elected as the Company’s
accounting firm for the period until the AGM 2014. The Nomination Committee
proposes that Öhrlings PricewaterhouseCoopers AB is re-elected as accounting
firm.

Item 16
Appointment of the Nomination Committee will take place before coming elections
and payment of remuneration. It is proposed that the Nomination Committee should
consist of five members, representing the four largest shareholders at the
beginning of October together with the Chairman of the Board. Remuneration will
not be paid to the members of the Nomination Committee.

Item 17
The Board proposes that the AGM resolves to approve the Board’s resolution to
issue, offer and assign a maximum of 140,000 synthetic options to the group
management (seven persons) in the Arise Group. The option program is subject to
approval by the annual shareholders’ meeting in May, 2014.

Each option entitles the holder to, on 10 January 2017, receive a cash payment
from Arise corresponding to the difference between the market value of a share
in Arise at the time of exercise of the option and the prematurely determined
value of SEK 25. The difference cannot exceed an amount of SEK 40 per option
(ceiling). The total cost for the program is estimated to amount to a maximum of
approximately MSEK 5.6, based on the maximum payment of SEK 40 per option. The
value of SEK 25 corresponds to 125 percent of the shares of the Company on the
NASDAQ OMX Stockholm traded volume weighted average closing price during the
period from 16 December 2013 to 3 January 2014.The premium amounts to 3.04 per
option and it corresponds to the option's market value calculated in accordance
with Black & Scholes and conventional assumptions.

Each person in the group management is entitled to subscribe for 20,000
synthetic options. The last day of notifying participation in the option program
with synthetic options was on February 18, 2014. Oversubscription has not
occurred.

Since the options in the program are synthetic and no shares are issued, the
program does not lead to any dilution in Arise or the group. Other employees in
Arise have been offered a three-year option program with synthetic options on
substantially same terms and conditions as the group management.

Item 18
The Board proposes that the AGM should resolve to adopt guidelines regarding
remuneration for group management of the Company, including fixed salary and,
from time to time, variable payments of a maximum of one-third of the annual
fixed salary. Variable payments should in principle be based on the Company's
results. The Annual Report for 2013 specifies remuneration and benefits for the
senior management during 2013.

Item 19
The Board proposes that the AGM authorizes the Board to decide, until the next
AGM, on one or more occasions, to issue new shares, with or without
shareholders’ preferential rights to participate in the issue. However, such an
issuing may not cause the share capital in the Company to exceed the Company’s
highest share capital according to the Articles of Association. The
authorization should also include the right to decide on issue in kind or right
of set-off. The issue price shall, as a starting point, be the share’s market
value at each issue time. The authorization shall be used for acquisitions or
other structural businesses in the line of business.

Item 20

The Board proposes that the AGM authorizes the Board to decide on, until the
next AGM, acquisition of a maximum of 1/10 of outstanding shares from time to
time with funds that can be used for appropriation of profits. It is proposed
that the authorization should include the right to decide on exemption from the
shareholders’ preferential right. If the acquisition takes place at NASDAQ OMX
the price shall be within the, at each time, registered price interval. It
should be possible to acquire shares in order to change the capital structure of
the company, to finance acquisitions or other transactions, or otherwise for
disposal or redemption.

Item 21
The Board proposes that the AGM authorizes the Board to decide, until the next
AGM, to dispose of a maximum of 1/10 of all shares. It is proposed that the
authorization should include the right to decide on an exception from the
shareholders’ preferential right, the conditions therefore and the way which the
disposal takes place. It should be possible to dispose of the shares in
connection with possible acquisitions or other structural transaction or by sale
on the open market. When disposing of the shares on NASDAQ OMX the price shall
be to the current quotation.

Particular majority decisions

Valid resolutions under items 19, 20 and 21 require that the proposals are
supported by shareholders representing at least two thirds of the votes
submitted and represented at the Meeting.

Number of shares and votes

As of the date of issuing of this notice to attend, the total number of
registered shares and votes in the Company amounts to 33,428,070. As of this
