Authorisation to split the Company's share and amend the terms and
conditions of the stock options

The Annual Meeting decided to increase the number of the shares of the
Company in proportion to the ownership of the shareholders without
increasing the share capital ("share split"). The share split will be
realised so that all shares of the Company with an accounting par value
of EUR 1.00 will be split so that each share will entitle to four (4)
new shares with an accounting par value of EUR 0.25 each. The share
split will be implemented in the book-entry system and it does not
require any measures from the shareholders.

Due to the share split, the terms and conditions of the stock options
2004 will be amended accordingly. Each stock option will entitle to
subscribe for four (4) shares of the Company with an accounting par
value of EUR 0.25 each and the total subscription price will remain
unchanged.

Authorisation to increase the share capital

The Annual Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to increase the
share capital in one or more tranches by a new issue and/or by taking a
convertible loan and/or by issuing option rights so that based on the
new issue, the convertible bonds and the option rights the share capital
can be increased by a maximum of EUR 2 800 000 by issuing for
subscription a maximum of 2 800 000 new shares (no more than 11 200 000
new shares after the share split) at a price and on other terms to be
determined by the Board of Directors.

The authorisation comprises the right to deviate from the shareholders'
pre-emptive subscription right provided that the Company has an
important financial reason for the deviation. The authorisation can be
used in order to strengthen the Company's capital structure, to broaden
the Company's ownership, to be used as payment in corporate acquisitions
or when the Company acquires assets relating to its business, as part of
the Company's incentive programmes and for other similar purposes.
Shares may also be subscribed for against contribution in kind or by
means of set-off. The authorisation shall be in force until the next
Annual General Meeting, however not longer than one year from the
decision of this Meeting.

Authorisation to acquire the Company's own shares

The Annual Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to acquire the
Company's own shares with funds distributable as profit on the terms
given below. The acquisition of shares reduces the Company's
distributable shareholders' equity.

The Company's own shares can be acquired in order to strengthen the
Company's capital structure, to be used as payment in corporate
acquisitions or when the Company acquires assets related to its business
and as part of the Company's incentive programmes in a manner and to the
extent decided by the Board of Directors, and to be transferred for
other purposes or to be cancelled. A maximum of 1 400 000 own shares (no
                                                               3(3)

more than 5 600 000 new shares after the share split) will be acquired.
The Company's own shares will be acquired in accordance with the Board
of Directors' decision either through public trading or by public offer
at their market price at the time of purchase. The authorisation shall
be in force until the next Annual General Meeting, however not longer
than one year from the decision of this Meeting.

Company's own shares held by the Company at any one time. The
authorisation encompasses no more than 1 400 000 shares (no more than

the right to decide to whom and in which order own shares held are
conveyed, and to decide on conveyance of own shares in an order
deviating from the shareholders' pre-emptive right to acquire own shares
provided that the Company has an important financial reason for the
deviation. The authorisation can be used in order to strengthen the
Company's capital structure, to broaden the Company's ownership, to be
used as payment in corporate acquisitions or when the Company acquires
assets relating to its business, as part of the Company's incentive
programmes and for other similar purposes. The shares may also be
conveyed in public trading. The shares shall be conveyed at a price at
least equal to their market price at the time of conveyance as
determined in public trading. Otherwise, the Board of Directors is
