The board of directors' proposal for guidelines for salary and other
remuneration to the Company's CEO and other senior executives (item 16)

The board of directors' below proposal for guidelines for salary and other
remuneration to the Company's CEO and senior executives has been prepared in
order to secure that the Cision group offers a reward system that is
competitive, business driven, performance focused and meets the highest standard
on ethics and morale.

For a description of the Company's outstanding remuneration programs, reference
is made to note 8 of the Company's Annual Report for 2013.

Guidelines for salary and other remuneration of the Company's CEO and senior
executives
The board of directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting approves the
board's proposal regarding guidelines for salary and other remuneration of the
CEO and senior executives of the Company. The proposed guidelines mainly
correspond to the guidelines for remuneration that have been applied in previous
years and are based on existing agreements between the Company and the Company's
senior executives. The guidelines apply to the CEO, senior executives that
report directly to the CEO as well as selected other senior executives in the
Company group. The remuneration structure for the senior executives shall
comprise of both fixed and variable salary, pension, other benefits and when
appropriate a long term incentive plan.

Fixed salary
The Company shall offer market level terms that enable the Company to attract,
develop and retain senior executives. The fixed salary level is based on what
the local market pays for an equivalent position, based on qualification and
performance and is therefore a market-based salary. The fixed salary is reviewed
on a yearly basis.

Short term incentive plan (STI)
Variable cash remuneration is paid in the form of an annual performance based
bonus. The target bonus for the Company's senior executives varies depending on
their position. The target bonus for the CEO is 50 per cent of the fixed annual
salary and the maximum bonus is 100 per cent of the fixed annual base salary
when performance exceeds targets. For the Company's senior executives being part
of the executive committee the target bonus is 30-50 per cent of the fixed
annual base salary and the maximum bonus is 60-100 per cent of the fixed annual
base salary, and for other senior executives the target bonus is 20-30 per cent
of the fixed annual base salary and the maximum bonus is 40-60 per cent of the
fixed annual base salary. For the CEO, the senior executives being part of the
Company's executive committee, excluding country leaders, and for the central
finance function members, the bonus is based on (i) the Company's achieved
operating result ("EBIT") at group level as compared to budget for the financial
year 2014 and (ii) organic growth in revenue at group level as compared to
budget for the financial year 2014 and (iii) specific corporate targets set at
group or country level. For other senior executives, the bonus is based on (i)
EBIT and organic growth in revenue for the financial year 2014 as compared to
budget, calculated based on a group and/or country level depending on their
position and (ii) specific corporate targets as mentioned above. For each
individual and based on position, the allocation of bonus is based on a
weighting of the different components. In order for any bonus to be payable with
respect to the financial components, at least 86 per cent of the target for EBIT
at the level relevant for the executive must be attained. Maximum bonus for the
financial components will be payable upon attainment of 140 per cent of each
such relevant component. In order for any bonus relating to corporate targets to
be payable, at least 86 per cent of the relevant target must be attained, and
maximum payment for the corporate targets will be payable upon attainment of 100
per cent of each such target. The aggregate amount of the cash bonus earned
during 2014 under this incentive plan will, on the basis of the current
composition of the executive committee of the Company, amount to a maximum of
approximately 75 per cent of the aggregate amount of the annual fixed salaries
for all of the members of the executive committee participating in the STI
program.

Long term incentive plans (LTI)
Long term incentive programs shall be linked to certain pre-determined financial
performance criteria and shall ensure long-term commitment to the development of
the Company. The Company has two on-going share and share price related
incentive programs, adopted at the Annual General Meetings held in 2011 and
2013, respectively.

Pension
The basic principle with respect to pension arrangements shall be that the terms
and conditions correspond with market terms in the country where the Company's
senior executives are domiciled. The retirement age for the executives varies in
accordance with local customs. For the CEO, the Company shall allocate an amount
corresponding to 20 per cent of the CEO's pension qualifying salary for pension
and insurance solutions. Pensions are defined contribution and are paid on a
fixed percentage of base salary. The percentage ranges from 10 per cent to 21
per cent for senior executives. The Company's senior executives follow local
practice for supplementary pensions for salaried employees or corresponding
arrangements. Other pension allocations are made in accordance with local
customs and after approval from HR and the CEO.

Other benefits
The Company's CEO and senior executives are eligible for customary benefits
connected with their position, such as health care, medical insurance and a
company car or car allowance. Benefits vary between the countries and are based
on local customs.

Severance payment and notice period
The CEO's employment contract is valid until further notice, with a mutual
notice period of six months. The CEO is entitled to a severance payment equal to
the annual base salary of the CEO. The notice period for the Company's senior
executives being part of the executive committee varies between zero and six
months. For the Company, the notice period to the Company’s senior executives
varies between zero and six months. The Company's senior executives being part
of the executive committee are entitled to severance payment equal to one to
nine monthly salaries. Further, where the board of directors deems it required
in order to secure the Company's need for continuity in the senior executive
team in connection with significant changes to the structure or ownership of the
Company, additional arrangements for senior executives may be implemented in
relation to notice periods, severance payments and financial incentives to
remain in the Company's service.

Preparation and resolution
In respect of the CEO, the salary, criteria for variable remuneration and other
terms of employmentare approved by the board. For the Company's other senior
executives, the CEO proposes terms and conditions which are then approved by the
board of directors.

The board of directors shall have the right to deviate from these principles in
individual cases if there is a solid business rationale and good reason for such
a decision.

The board of directors' proposal regarding re-allocation of shares bought back
under LTI 2011 (item 17)
The board of directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves upon a
re-allocation of shares bought back under the long term share-related incentive
program adopted by the Annual General Meeting held in 2011 (LTI 2011) to the
long term share-related incentive program adopted by the Annual General Meeting
held in 2013 (LTI 2013). In brief, the proposal means that a number of the
51,262 shares which are owned by the Company, are re-allocated to LTI 2013 so
that the re-allocated shares can be used to secure delivery of shares to
participants in LTI 2013 and to secure for future cash flow effects due to
payments of social security costs related to LTI 2013. It is proposed that an
aggregate number of 19,116 shares are re-allocated from LTI 2011 to LTI 2013. It
is further proposed that transfers of re-allocated shares shall be made on the
same principles as prescribed in connection with the adoption of LTI 2013 at the
2013 Annual General Meeting.

Majority requirement
An adoption to authorise the board of directors to resolve on a re-allocation of
bought back shares shall be valid only where approved by shareholders holding
not less than nine-tenths of both the shares voted and of the shares represented
at the Annual General Meeting.

Shareholder's right to request information
Shareholders of the Company are, where the board of directors believes that it
may take place without significant harm to the Company, at the Annual General
Meeting entitled to receive information in respect of any circumstances which
may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda or of the Company's or a
subsidiary's financial position (i.e. the right to request information pursuant
to Chapter 7, Section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act).

Number of shares and votes
The Company has in total 14,909,583 shares, each representing one vote, i.e. in
total 14,909,583 votes. At the time of this notice, the Company's holding of own
shares, which cannot be represented at the Annual General Meeting, amounted in
total to 51,262 shares.

Further information
The complete proposal with respect to the re-allocation of shares bought back
for LTI 2011 (item 17), the accounting documents and the audit report for the
financial year 2013 as well as the auditor's statement pursuant to Chapter 8,
Section 54 of the Swedish Companies Act regarding compliance with the guidelines
for compensation to senior executives, respectively, are available at the
Company's premises and will, without charge, be sent by post to shareholders who
so request, stating their address. All these documents are also available for
