Decision on the Board's proposal concerning an issue etc. (point 12 above). The Board is proposing that the general meeting decide on the issuing of a debenture (inscribed debenture loan) of SEK 100,000 with detachable warrants for the new issue of no more than 1,000,000 B shares in Resco AB (public company). The issue is to be made as a departure from the shareholders' preferential right. The debenture is to be issued for a nominal amount, bear interest at an annual rate of 4.5 percent, mature on 31 December 2001, as well as being subscribed to and paid for no later than 29 May 2001. The right to subscribe to the debenture is only held by Resco AB's wholly owned subsidiary, Resco Utbildning AB, with the right and obligation for the subsidiary to sell warrants under market conditions to employees within the Resco group and members of the Board of Resco AB (public company). Warrants give the right to take up a new subscription during the period from 2 to 30 May 2003 by cash payment. The share capital will be able to be increased by a maximum of SEK 500,000. The subscription price for newly issued B shares will be that for B-series shares in the company at the average price paid for shares (as quoted on OM Stockholm Stock Exchange's official list) during the period 7 to 21 May 2001, increased by a surcharge determined by market conditions. All the employees are guaranteed warrants with the right to subscribe to 1,000 shares. Reason for departing from the shareholders' preferential right etc. The reason for departing from the shareholders' preferential right is that a personal proprietary interest on the part of the management and the employees can be expected to increase motivation in future work within the Resco group and provide the stimulus for an increased interest in the business and the earning trends. The proposal is likely to be of benefit to the company and thereby to its shareholders. If fully exploited the proposed issue involves a dilution of about 3.5% of the share capital and about 2% of the votes. For a decision to be made by the general meeting about the issue outlined above it is required that the decision of the meeting be supported by shareholders with at least nine tenths of both the indicated votes as well as the shares represented at the meeting. The Board's proposal for authorisation (point 13 above) The Board is proposing that the general meeting authorise the Board, as a departure from the shareholders' preferential right, to decide on one or more occasions concerning an issue or new issue of convertible debentures, debentures associated with warrants (option rights) to a new subscription. The shares and the debentures will be able to be subscribed to by payment with assets other than cash. The authorisation is to cover a maximum of 4,000,000 B-series shares and is to be valid for a period not extending beyond the next annual general meeting. The issues supported by the authorisation are to be used for financing and acquisitions subject to market conditions. If fully exploited the proposed authorisation involves a dilution of about 12.7% of the share capital and about 7.5% of the votes. For a decision to be made by the general meeting about the authorisation it is required that the decision of the meeting be supported by shareholders with at least two thirds of both the indicated votes as well as the shares represented at the meeting. Election of the Board etc. Shareholders representing about 52% of the votes have indicated that they intend to vote for the re-election of Jan-Olof Engström, Barbara Ericsson, Kjell Jacobsson, Johan Mathson, Johan Siwers and Mikael Öhlund with Stefan Lindell as deputy member. Mats Ohlsson has declined to be re- elected. Dividend etc. The Board is proposing that no dividend be paid for the financial year 2000.
