Guidelines for remuneration to senior executives

The AGM resolved on the adoption of guidelines for remuneration to senior
executives principally entailing that the remuneration shall consist of a basic
remuneration, a variable remuneration, other benefits and pension and all in all
be competitive and in accordance with market practice. The variable remuneration
shall be maximized to 60 per cent in relation to the basic remuneration, related
to the earnings trend which the relevant individual may influence and based on
the outcome in relation to individual targets. However, in relation to two
senior executives employed in the USA a cap of 200 per cent in relation to the
basic remuneration currently applies for the variable part of the salary, and
will apply going forward. In addition, for one senior executive the variable
remuneration is maximised at 70 per cent in relation to the basic remuneration.
The Board shall annually consider whether a share or share price related
incentive program shall be proposed to the Annual General Meeting.

The notice period shall normally be six months on the part of the employee. In
case of notice of termination by the company, the notice period and the period
during which severance payment is paid shall, all in all, not exceed 24 months.
The pension rights shall be either benefit or fee based, or a combination of
both, with an individual pension age, however, not lower than 60 years.

Authorisation of the Board to resolve on acquisition and transfer of the
company's shares

The AGM resolved to authorise the Board of Directors to, on one or several
occasions during the time period until the next Annual General Meeting, resolve
on the acquisition and transfer of the company's own shares. Acquisition shall
be made of a maximum of so many shares that the shareholding of the company from
time to time does not exceed ten (10) per cent of all the shares in the company.
Acquisitions may be made on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm at the stock-exchange quotation
applicable at the time of acquisition. Transfer may be made of a maximum of so
many shares which from time to time correspond to ten (10) per cent of all the
shares in the company. Transfer may take place with deviation from the
shareholders' preferential rights at NASDAQ OMX Stockholm as well as to a third
party in connection with the acquisition of a company or business. Payment for
shares transferred shall be made in cash, by contribution in kind or by set-off.
Transfer in connection with the acquisition of a company may take place at a
market value appraised by the Board of Directors. The purpose of the
authorisation is to give the Board of Directors the opportunity to adjust the
company's capital structure and to finance acquisitions by utilisation of the
company's own shares.
