Item 12 Determination of remuneration to the auditor

The Nomination Committee proposes that remuneration of the auditors shall be
paid on approved account.

Item 14 Appointment of members to the Nomination Committee and adoption of
guidelines for the Nomination Committee

The Nomination Committee proposes that the Committee for the 2015 AGM will
consist of representatives of the four largest shareholders at September 30,
2014, who are not members of the Board. The Nomination Committee shall appoint a
chairman from among its members. It is incumbent upon the Chairman of the Board
to convene the Nomination Committee. Should a shareholder decline to participate
in the committee the right to appoint a representative shall be transferred to
the next largest shareholder not represented in the committee. If deemed
appropriate as a result of ownership changes, the Nomination Committee shall
invite additional shareholders to join the Nomination Committee, though the
total number of members may not exceed five. In the event a member of the
Nomination Committee leaves the Committee before its work is completed, the
Chairman of the Board, if the Nomination Committee deems necessary, shall invite
the same shareholder or, if the latter is no longer one of the major
shareholders, the shareholder next entitled, in terms of size of shareholding,
to appoint a replacement Such a change shall be announced on the Company’s
website.

The Nomination Committee will prepare proposals for the 2015 Annual General
Meeting for resolution as regards chairman at the meeting, Chairman of the Board
and other directors, remuneration of directors and auditors, and principles for
appointing the Nomination Committee. The Nomination Committee mandate runs until
a new committee is appointed.

The Nomination Committee proposes that remuneration will only be paid for direct
costs associated with the assignment.

Item 15 The Board of Directors’ proposal for a motion regarding remuneration
guidelines for senior executives

The Board of Directors proposes that the AGM adopts the following guidelines for
remuneration to senior executives.

These guidelines are valid for employment agreements entered into after the
guidelines are approved by the AGM, and for amendments made afterward to
existing employment agreements. The basic principle is that remuneration and
other terms of employment for the management and CEO will be competitive to
ensure that Genovis AB can attract and retain senior executives.

Fixed remuneration policy

The fixed remuneration to the management and the Chief Executive Officer should
be competitive and be based on the individual areas of responsibility and
performance.

Variable remuneration policy

Variable compensation will be limited and linked to predetermined measurable
criteria designed to promote long-term value creation for the company. Variable
compensation may not exceed a maximum of 25% percent of the fixed salary and
will be set per fiscal year.

The Board will consider on a yearly basis whether or not to propose a share
-related or market value-related incentive program to the Annual General
Meeting. The Annual General Meeting makes the decisions regarding such incentive
programs.

Conditions for non-monetary benefits, pensions, termination, and severance pay

Pensions

Management and the CEO are entitled to a defined-contribution pension.

Termination and severance pay

For the CEO the notice period is 12 months for the Company and 6 months for the
individual.  For management personnel the notice period is 6 months for the
Company and 6 months for the individual. Moreover, assuming that the Company
gave notice of termination, in certain cases the CEO may be offered 12 months of
severance pay. The Board of Directors may depart from these guidelines if there
are particular reasons in an individual case.

The company's undertaking in relation to senior executives and the chief
executive may amount to a maximum of SEK 3,828,810.

Item 16 The Board's proposal for a motion on the issuance of warrants to
subscribe for shares.

The Board of Directors of Genovis (“the Company”) proposes that the AGM resolves
in favor of issuance of a maximum of 450,000 warrants. Each warrant entitles the
holder to subscribe for one (1) new share in Genovis.

The price at which new shares may be subscribed for shall correspond to a sum
that amounts to 150 percent of the volume-weighted average price paid for the
Company’s share, which is listed on First North, during the period from May 6,
2014 up until May 19, 2014, though no lower than a subscription price
corresponding to the par value of the share.

Subscription for new shares will take place during the period from April 1, 2017
through June 30, 2017.

The warrants may only be subscribed, with deviation from shareholders’
preferential rights, by GeccoDots AB, a wholly-owned subsidiary (“the
Subsidiary”) of Genovis, given that the AGM approves the resolution on the
issuance.

The warrants will be issued without consideration to the Subsidiary. It is
intended that the Subsidiary subsequently, on one or more occasions, will
transfer the warrants to the CEO and key personnel of great value to the
Company's future development (“Participants”) as part of a long-term incentive
program established by the Company.

For the warrants that the Subsidiary transfers to the Participants, they shall
pay a premium corresponding to the prevailing market value according to an
independent valuation using the Black-Scholes formula. The Board proposes that
the Meeting approve the Subsidiary’s transfer of the warrants on the terms and
conditions specified above.

The Board's reason for the above proposal, and the deviation from shareholders’
preferential rights, is that a personal long-term ownership commitment among the
employees can be expected to stimulate increased interest in the business and
the earnings trend, increased motivation and an enhanced sense of loyalty to the
Company, which the Board considers to be beneficial for the Company and its
shareholders. The Board therefore believes that the offer is beneficial to the
Company and its shareholders.

Assuming full exercise of the warrants, share capital will increase by about SEK
180,000, corresponding to a dilution effect of approximately 2.0 percent of the
total number of shares and votes in the Company.

The Board proposes that the AGM resolves that the Board or the Board designee is
hereby authorized to determine the amount of the issue price in accordance with
the above decision and adapt the conditions accordingly, and to otherwise make
minor adjustments to the resolutions above that may be required for registration
with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and Euroclear.

Decisions under this item on the agenda require support of shareholders
representing at least nine tenths of both cast votes and shares represented at
the meeting.
