The shares may be acquired in accordance with the Board of Directors' decision either through public trading, in which case the shares would be acquired in another proportion than that of the current shareholders, or by a public offer at market prices at the time of purchase.

The Board of Directors is authorised to resolve on all other terms and conditions. It is proposed that the authorisation be effective for a period of 18 months.

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting authorise the Board of Directors to decide to issue new shares and to convey the Company's own shares held by the Company in one or more tranches. The share issue can be carried out as a share issue against payment or without consideration on terms to be determined by the Board of Directors and in relation to a share issue against payment at a price to be determined by the Board of Directors.

The authorisation also includes the right to issue special rights, in the meaning of Chapter 10 Section 1 of the Companies Act, which entitle to the Company's new shares or the Company's own shares held by the Company against consideration.

A maximum of 11 800 000 new shares can be issued. A maximum of 5 900 000 own shares held by the Company can be conveyed.

The Board of Directors proposes that the authorisation comprise a right to deviate from the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription right provided that the Company has an important financial reason for the deviation in a share issue against payment and provided that the Company taking into account the interest of all its shareholders has a particularly important financial reason for the deviation in a share issue without consideration. The authorisation can within the above mentioned limits be used e.g. 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 and as part of the Company's incentive programmes. It is proposed that shares may also be subscribed for or own shares conveyed against contribution in kind or by means of set-off.

In addition the authorisation includes the right to decide on a share issue without consideration to the Company itself so that the amount of own shares held by the Company after the share issue is a maximum of one tenth (1/10) of all shares in the Company. Pursuant to Chapter 15 Section 11 Subsection 1 of the Companies Act, all own shares held by the Company and its subsidiaries are included in this amount.

It is proposed that the authorisation shall be effective for a period of 18 months. The authorisation granted to the Board of Directors regarding issuing shares in the previous Annual General Meeting shall expire simultaneously.
