Proposal concerning the number and the election of members of the Board and Auditor, and fees to the Board and the Auditor (agenda items 10, 11 and 12)
The Election Committee proposes that the Board shall consist of seven (7) people, with no (0) deputy members.

The Election Committee proposes re-election of all members of the Board, that is Thomas Eklund, Carsten Browall, Bo Wahlström, Mikael Olsson, Cecilia Schelin Seidegård, Johan Wachtmeister and Christer Johansson, for a mandate period up until the end of the next Annual General Meeting.

A reasoned statement from the Election Committee and further information on the proposed members of the Board are available on the Company’s website, www.ghp.se.

The Election Committee proposes a Board fee of SEK 1,600,000 in total, to be divided up as follows: SEK 400,000 to the Chairman of the Board and SEK 200,000 to six (6) Board members who are not Global Health Partner employees. No further remuneration is paid for committee work.

The Election Committee proposes the re-election of Ernst & Young AB, with the authorized public accountant Thomas Nilsson as the auditor in charge. It is proposed that Ernst & Young AB be elected for a period up until the end of the next AGM.

The Election Committee proposes that the Auditor's fee be paid on the basis of approved invoicing presented to the Company, for a period up until the end of the next Annual General Meeting.

The Board’s proposal for a resolution authorizing the Board to issue shares in connection with a company acquisition etc. (agenda item 13)
The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting adopts a resolution authorizing the Board, for a period of time no longer than up until the next Annual General Meeting in 2016, on one or more occasions and following or deviating from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights, to make a decision to issue no more than 6,500,000 new shares. The Board shall be entitled to decide that the shares be paid for, apart from in cash, via capital contributed in kind or otherwise on terms specified in chap 2 § 5 second paragraph 1-3 and 5 of the Swedish Companies Act or that the shares shall be subscribed for with offset rights. A new share issue deviating from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights may only be utilized to finance the acquisition of a company or part of a company. In the event of a resolution on a directed cash issue of shares, the subscription price of the new shares shall be set at an amount that is in close relation to the price of the Company’s shares on the

Stock Exchange at the time the new share issue is carried out. The reason for the right to deviate from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights is to enable the Company, when an occasion arises to acquire a company or part of a company, to quickly and effectively finance the acquisition either by bringing in capital or via capital contributed in kind. The dilution effect if the authorization is fully utilized corresponds to approximately nine (9) percent of the share capital and votes.

The resolution is only valid if at least two thirds of both the votes cast and the votes represented at the Annual General Meeting have been given in favour of the proposal .

Furthermore, the Board proposes that t he Board of Directors, or its nominee, shall be authorized by the Annual General Meeting to make such minor adjustments to the resolution of the Meeting that may be required for registration at the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

The Board’s proposal for a resolution approving the following related party transactions pursuant to chap 16 of the Swedish Companies Act (agenda item 14)
a) The Board’s proposal for a resolution approving the sale of shares in OrthoCenter Stockholm (“OCS”)

Global Health Partner’s business model is based on key persons in the subsidiaries becoming partners in the clinic where they are operational.

During 2014 Global Health Partner sold 262 shares in OCS to Per Sandkvist, corresponding to a participating interest of 6 percent. Per Sandkvist paid a sum of SEK 1,817,872 for these shares. It is estimated that the payment corresponds to the market value of the shares at the time. Per Sandkvist is the CEO of OCS and it is assessed that he is of considerable importance for the clinic’s business.

It is the assessment of the Board that the transfer of the shares is of benefit to OCS and thereby to Global Health Partner’s shareholders. The Board thus proposes that the Annual General Meeting adopt a resolution to approve the transfer of 262 shares in OCS to Per Sandkvist.

Approval of the above resolution requires that at least nine tenths of both the votes cast and the votes represented at the Annual General Meeting are in favour of the proposal.

b) The Board’s proposal for a resolution approving the sale of shares in Bariatric Center Stockholm

During 2014 the companies Bariatric Center Stockholm AB (“BCS”) and Kirurgkliniken i Stockholm AB (“KK”) merged. KK was folded into the Parent Company BCS by means of absorption pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act (2005:551) chap 23 § 28.

Three key persons in KK, Bo Westman, Bo Ahlman and Göran Felländer, were partners in KK before the merger and should therefore receive newly issued shares corresponding to the same value in BCS as payment for the merger. The valuation of each company was carried out by means of a relative valuation.

Bo Westman owned 100 shares in KK and received 82 shares in BCS as payment. Bo Ahlman owned 50 shares in KK and received 41 shares in BCS as payment. Göran Felländer owned 50 shares in KK and received 41 shares in BCS as payment. It is assessed that the payment corresponds to the market value of the shares at the time.

In the assessment of the Board, the merger between KK and BCS is of benefit to the company and thereby to Global Health Partner’s shareholders. The Board thus proposes that the Annual General Meeting adopts a resolution to approve the issue of shares to Bo Westman, Bo Ahlman and Göran Felländer.

The resolution is only valid if at least two thirds of both the votes cast and the votes represented at the Annual General Meeting have been given in favour of the proposal.

The Board’s proposal for a) a change of company name and b) a change in the Articles of Association due to item 15 a) (agenda item 15)
a) The Company’s present name is Global Health Partner AB. The Company decided some time ago to use the abbreviated name GHP in corporate communications

The Board proposes that the company name be changed to GHP Specialty Care AB (publ).

The resolution regarding this item 15 a) shall be conditional on the Annual General Meeting voting for the proposal for a resolution to change the Articles of Association, as laid out in item 15 b).

b) The Board proposes that the Company’s Articles of Association be adjusted as follows: § 1 The Company’s name is GHP Specialty Care AB (publ). The Company is a public limited liability company (publ).

The resolution regarding this item 15 b) shall be conditional on the Annual General Meeting voting for the proposal for a resolution to change the company’s name, as laid out in item 15 a).

The resolutions regarding a) and b) above are only valid if at least two thirds of both the votes cast and the votes represented at the Annual General Meeting have been given in favour of the proposal.

Furthermore, the Board proposes that t he Board of Directors, or its nominee, shall be authorized by the Annual General Meeting to make such minor adjustments to the resolutions of the Meeting that may be required for registration at the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

The Board’s proposal for a resolution on guidelines for remuneration and other terms of employment for senior executives (agenda item 16)
The Company shall strive to offer total remuneration that is reasonable and competitive in the market where the Company is operative. The remuneration terms shall reflect ‘payment by performance’ and vary with the individual’s performance and the Company’s results. The total remuneration can comprise a basic annual salary, insurable benefits and other variable remuneration or remuneration from incentive programs.

Following the ‘payment by performance’ principle, remuneration from different forms of variable remuneration or incentive programs can represent an important part of the total remuneration for senior management. Such remuneration can be offered both with short-term performance targets (up to one (1) year) and long-term performance targets (three (3) years or longer). Other variable remuneration may be approved by the Board in extraordinary circumstances, provided that such extraordinary arrangements are made with a view to recruiting or retaining personnel or achieving certain objectives.

The Board of Directors shall be entitled to deviate from these guidelines if special reasons for doing so exist in any individual case.

Proposal for a resolution on principles for the appointment of the Election Committee for the Annual General Meeting of 2016 (agenda item 17)
The Election Committee proposes that the Company Chairman be appointed as a member of the Election Committee and shall appoint, in consultation with the three largest owners of the Company at 30 September 2015, three further members to the Election Committee. If any of these three owners do not wish to appoint a representative this right is transferred to the fourth largest owner, and so on. In the event that one of the members of the Election Committee represents a shareholder that no longer belongs to the largest shareholders of the Company in terms of the number of votes, or for any other reason decides to resign from the Election Committee before the Annual General Meeting of 2016, the other members of the Election Committee shall together have the right to appoint another representative for the major shareholders to replace this committee member. The names of the three owners’ representatives and of the shareholders that they represent shall be published no later than six months before the Annual General Meeting of 2016.

The tasks of the Election Committee for the Annual General Meeting of 2016 shall be to submit proposals for the election of a Chairman for the Annual General Meeting, the number of members of the Board, election of the Chairman and other members of the Board, election of the company’s Auditors, fees and other remuneration for each of the members of the Board, a fee for the Company’s Auditors and a resolution on the Election Committee for the Annual General Meeting of 2017. The Election Committee shall otherwise fulfil the duties incumbent on the Election Committee, as stipulated by the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance.
