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.
