The Election Committee proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to appoint a new election committee in preparation for the Annual General Meeting to be held in 2013, to a large extent in the same way as for the Annual General Meeting of 2012. This entails that the chairman of the board of directors shall contact the two largest registered or otherwise known shareholders as per 1 April, 2012, and invite them to each appoint one member of the election committee.

The election committee shall consist of these two members together with the chairman of the board of directors. The election committee shall appoint a chairman amongst its members.
