The issue will be directed at present shareholders and holders of the outstanding issue of convertible debentures 2001/2004.

The subordinated debentures extend from April 1, 2004 to March 31, 2007 at a nominal interest rate of 5,00 % p.a. Conversion and subscription for new shares through utilisation of options are effectuated at the end of each calendar quarter until maturity.

Record day of the issue is March 3, 2004 and the subscription period extends between March 12 – 26, 2004.

The total issue with regard to present shareholders amounts to approx. SEK 50,4 million and to holders of current debentures to approx. SEK 17,7 million.

As previously announced Hauck & Aufhäuser Investment Gesellschaft S.A. has issued a SEK 6 million subscription pledge, in addition to which a number of additional major shareholders and holders of convertible debentures have expressed their intent to participate in the issue.
