Approval of the transfer of shares with an aggregate par value of E 41 000 in Cell Consulting AG, corresponding to 82% of the shares in the company, to Michael Dirkes.

Additional information is available at the company from and including 3 May 2001 and will be sent on request. 11. Proposal by the board of directors to adopt a global option programme. The board of directors proposes the shareholders meeting to adopt a global option programme which means that present and future employees are granted call options (so called employee options) free of charge, which entitles the holder to acquire shares in the company. The strike price for the options shall substantially correspond the market value of a share in the company at the time the options are issued. The options may be exercised not earlier than one year and not later than five years from the time of the issue and subject to the holder at the time of the exercise remaining employed in the group. Options may be issued by the company or by other companies in the group. The board shall be authorised to in accordance with the above guidelines decide on the detailed terms and conditions for the option programme. The board may in connection therewith make adjustments to satisfy special rules or market conditions abroad. The purpose of the proposed option programme is to create conditions to retain and recruit competent employees to group. The board is of the opinion that the launching of an option programme as above is beneficial to the company and the shareholders. In accordance with the above guidelines it is proposed that the shareholders meeting approves that the company issues up to 1 000 000 options to the senior executives and key employees of the group where the managing director may be allotted up to 500 000 options while other senior executives and key employees may be allotted up to 100 000 options, at a strike price equal to the volume weighted average price paid for a share on each trading day from and including the first day following announcement by the company of the concluded new issue of shares set out in item 8 above until and including the tenth trading day thereafter according to the official quotation list from Stockholmsbörsen. The options shall be issued in close connection therewith. The distribution of the options shall be decided by the board, where i.a. the employee's performance and position in and importance to the group will be considered. The board shall be authorised to deviate from the above guidelines if required by reason of special conditions on a certain local market. If all options are fully exercised employees will acquire shares in the company corresponding to approximately 1.2 per cent of the votes and share capital. The option programme means that employees in the group will be granted options to acquire shares in the company. Such transfers are subject to the act (1987:464) on certain issues of new shares in public companies without preferential rights for the shareholders etc. ("Leo-act"), which means that a resolution in favour of the option programme requires a majority of nine tenths of the votes cast and of the number of shares represented at the shareholders meeting. The board's complete proposal is available at the company from and including 3 May 2001 and will be sent on request. 12. Proposal by the board of directors for authorisation for the board to resolve to raise subordinated debt by issuing debt instruments with detachable options to subscribe to new shares. The board of directors proposes the shareholders meeting to authorise the board to, for the time until the next annual general meeting of shareholders, with deviation from the preferential rights of the shareholders, on or more occasions, resolve to issue debt instruments with up to 1 300 000 detachable options to subscribe to new shares in the company. The right to subscribe to debt instruments shall, with deviation from the preferential rights of the shareholders, be vested in wholly owned subsidiaries in the group. If the authorisation is fully used and if all 1 300 000 options are exercised for subscription of shares the share capital of the company will increase by SEK 2 600 000, corresponding to approximately 1.6 per cent of the votes and share capital. The aggregate maximum dilution for previously issued and the presently proposed option programme amounts to approximately 8.3 per cent of votes and capital. Previously issued option programmes have strike prices of SEK 20, 31, 56, 58, 66, 113 and 142 respectively. If in view of the present share prices only previous option programmes with strike prices less than SEK 56 are considered, the maximum dilution amounts to approximately 5.1 per cent of the capital and votes. The reason for the deviation from the preferential rights of the shareholders is to secure the fulfilment of the option commitments in the option programme described in item 11 and to cover administration costs and social costs or similar taxes which may arise by reason of the programme. The board's complete proposal is available at the company from and including 3 May 2001 and will be sent on request. 13. Closing of the meeting. Election of board of directors at the annual general meeting The company is aware of that shareholders representing 18.7% of the votes propose re-election of all board members (Lars O Pettersson, Niklas Flyborg, Maria Lilja, Jan Carlzon, Rune Rinnan and Thomas Heilmann).
