As deputy member of the Board it is proposed the re- election of Johan Hakelius. As auditor it is proposed the re-election of Hans Karlsson and re- election of Carl Lindgren as deputy auditor. At the Annual General Meeting of 1999, Lars Träff was elected as auditor and Erik Åström as deputy auditor for a period of four years. The above proposals have been made by shareholders representing more than 50 per cent of the votes in the company. Resolution to authorise the Board to issue debentures with detachable warrants To enable the utilization of the remaining options in accordance with the share option plan approved at the extraordinary shareholders meeting on 16 February 2001, the Board proposes that the Meeting authorises the Board to, at one or more occasions, not later than the next Annual General Meeting, resolve to issue debentures attached with not more than 342,140 detachable warrants, entitling the holders to subscribe for new shares in the company. Entitlement to subscribe for debentures shall, with deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive rights, rest with wholly owned subsidiaries of the Group. In the event the Board utilizes the authorisation in full, there will be no further dilution compared with the resolutions approved at the extraordinary shareholders meeting held on 16 February 2001. The reason for the deviation from the pre-emption right of the shareholders is to guarantee the fulfilment of the obligation under granted options in accordance with the share option plan described above and to cover social security costs and equivalent taxes which may be incurred due to the plan. Resolution to authorise the Board to issue convertible bonds The Board proposes that the Meeting authorises the Board to, at one or more occasions, not later than the next Annual General Meeting, without pre-emptive rights for the shareholders, resolve to raise loans through the issuance of convertible bonds, in a total amount not exceeding EUR 140,000,000. The convertible debentures may only be converted into class B shares. The reason for the authorisation is to give the Board the opportunity to raise additional capital to the company in a cost efficient way through an offering to a limited number of institutional investors on the international capital markets and in Sweden. Miscellaneous The complete text of the Board of Directors' proposals in accordance with the above will be available at the company's office at Skeppsbron 18 in Stockholm as from 10 May 2001. Shareholders wishing to obtain the documents shall notify the company, upon which the material is sent by post.

We are seeing a number of opportunities in both our existing and new geographical markets as is evidenced by our recent acquisition of a controlling interest in Darial TV. We wish to raise funds in a cost effective manner, in order to finance the continued expansion of our businesses, and we are therefore seeking shareholder approval to provide the Group with this option."
