Amendment of the Articles of Association Because the new Swedish Companies Act has taken effect, the Meeting voted in favour of the Board of Directors proposal regarding certain amendments of the Articles of Association. The amendments essentially entail that the clause concerning the par value per share be replaced by a clause stating that the number of company shares shall amount to not fewer than 75,000,000 and not more than 300,000,000, that the notice of a General Meeting of Shareholders be made in the form of an announcement in the Official Gazette (Post och Inrikes Tidningar) and in Svenska Dagbladet and certain additional amendments that are a direct consequence of the new Swedish Companies Act taking effect or that are of an editorial nature. It is also proposed that it should be possible to elect not more than two deputy Board Members and not more than two deputy auditors. Authorisation to make decisions regarding new issue of shares The Meeting voted to authorise the Board to make decisions on one or more occasion prior to the next Annual General Meeting regarding the non-cash issue of not more than 10,000,000 new Series B shares in connection with company acquisitions. The authorisation corresponds to a dilution effect of not more than 10.1 percent.
Resolution regarding a reduction in the Company's statutory reserves The Meeting voted in favour of the Board of Directors proposal to reduce the Company's statutory reserves by SEK 25,000,000 from SEK 271,399,073 to SEK 246,399,073.
