Rights issue (item 7)

The shareholders of the company shall be entitled to subscribe for the new shares with pre-emptive rights. Each shareholder of the company, regardless of share class, shall thereby be entitled to subscribe for new shares in relation to the number of shares previously held. Subscription may also be made without pre-emptive rights as set forth in the complete issue resolution.
The board of directors shall be authorized to, no later than on 10 November 2016, determine (i) the maximum amount by which the company’s share capital shall be increased, (ii) the maximum number of class B shares that shall be issued and (iii) the amount payable for each new class B share.
