Press Release

April 24th, 2008

The shareholders of AudioDev AB (publ) have today, April 24, 2008, held their AGM in Malmö, Sweden.

The AGM adopted the annual report and consolidated accounts and decided in accordance with the Board and CEO's proposal that no share dividend be paid for 2007. The AGM approved the discharge from liability for Board members and CEO for the financial year.

In his report, AudioDev's CEO, Christer Sjöström gave an account of business activities for 2007. He then presented the interim report for the first quarter of the year. In the presentation he stressed the importance of continuing development work in the thin film business as a way of expanding the market for AudioDev's technology. The market for thin film measurement is assessed as being extremely important for AudioDev's future growth. Last year's investments in new applications have received a good response in the quarter, while market scanning witnessed a breakthrough and the indications for new orders were very encouraging. Moreover, he pointed out that the format war between the two blue-laser based formats, BD and HD DVD, is now over and that one of the major factors of uncertainty on the market has thereby been removed.

A resolution was passed for the Board to be made up of five ordinary members without any deputies. The elected chairman was Jan Barchan, and the other Board members Göran Barsby, Per Ludvigsson, Thomas Vonheim and Sigrun Hjelmquist were all re-elected. Remuneration was set at SEK 200,000 to the chairman and SEK 150,000 to each of the Board members.

A resolution was passed on guidelines for remuneration to leading officials in line with the proposal from the Board. The proposal has been published in full in the Directors' Report section of the annual report.
