five board members receive SEK 150,000 each. As last year, an additional
remuneration of SEK 25,000 for committee work shall be paid per member and
committee. The auditor's fees shall be paid as per approved invoice.

DIVIDENDS

It was resolved that no dividends should be paid for the financial year of 2013.

GUIDELINES FOR REMUNERATION TO SENIOR MANAGEMENT

In accordance with the proposal of the Board, the General Meeting resolved to
adopt guidelines for remuneration to senior management principally entailing
that remuneration and terms of employment shall be competitive and in accordance
with market conditions. In addition to fixed salary, management may also receive
variable salary, which shall be based on the group’s result and individual
goals. The variable part of the salary may amount to a maximum of 75% of the
fixed salary for the managing director and 50% of the fixed salary for the other
members of senior management. Remuneration may also be paid by way of warrants
and other share-related incentive programs. At termination of employment, a
mutual notice period of 6 months shall apply for the managing director and of 3
-6 months shall apply for the other members of senior management. Redundancy
payment to the managing director may be paid by a maximum of 12 monthly salaries
if the employment is terminated by the Company. Other members of senior
management shall not be entitled to redundancy payment. The retirement age for
all members of senior management shall be 65 years and the pension premium shall
be calculated based on age and salary and may amount to a maximum of 25% of the
fixed salary. The resolution entails a level of remuneration principally in
accordance with that of the previous year.

AUTHORIZATION FOR THE BOARD TO RESOLVE UPON NEW ISSUEs OF SHARES AND/OR
CONVERTIBLES

In accordance with the proposal of the Board, the General Meeting resolved to
authorize the Board to decide on new issues of shares and/or convertibles. Such
issue may entail a deviation from the shareholders' preferential right for
payment in cash, in kind and/or through set-off. The issue may result in an
aggregate increase in the share capital corresponding to the issue of a maximum
of 34,530,609 shares and/or convertibles to be converted into a maximum of
34,530,609 shares. Full exercise of the authorization, and where applicable full
conversion, is equivalent to a dilution of approximately 10% of the current
share capital and votes. The purpose of the authorization and the reason for the
deviation from the shareholders’ preferential right is to enable the Company to
effect payment of company acquisitions by the Company’s own shares and/or
convertibles or through set-off, and to obtain capital contributions from new
owners that are considered strategically important in an operational, financial,
structural or other perspective.

RESOLUTION REGARDING INCENTIVE PROGRAM FOR THE COMPANY’S EMPLOYEES

In accordance with the proposal of the Board, the General Meeting resolved to
adopt an incentive program for the Company’s employees by way of issue of a
maximum of 8 million subscription warrants, entitling to subscription for the
equivalent number of shares during the period from 1 July 2017 to 31 December
2017. The subscription price at subscription for shares shall be equivalent to
220% of the average share price during the period 5-16 May 2014. The
subscription warrants shall be directed to a wholly-owned subsidiary of the
Company, which in turn shall transfer the subscription warrants to the Company’s
employees in accordance with specific conditions for allotment. The reason for
the deviation from the shareholders' preferential right is that the Board of
Directors is of the opinion that an incentive program which offers the Company’s
employees the opportunity to take part in an increase in the value of the
Company will enhance commitment and motivation of the employees to work for a
favorable financial development of the Company. An incentive program is further
expected to contribute to the ability to recruit and retain competent employees.
Assuming that all 8 million subscription warrants are exercised to subscribe for
new shares, the Company’s share capital will increase with a maximum of
SEK 2,240,000, which would result in a dilution of approximately 2.3% in
relation to the Company’s current share capital.

RESOLUTION ON AMENDMENT OF THE ARTICLES OF ASSOCIATION

The General Meeting resolved, in accordance with the proposal of the Board, to
amend the central securities depository clause in the articles of association to
a simplified wording, and to delete § 7 of the articles of association stating
that the Chairman of the Board of Directors shall be appointed by the General
Meeting.
