Resolution to grant the board of directors an authorisation to purchase and sell the company’s own shares
The annual general meeting resolved to grant the board of directors an authorisation to purchase and sell the company’s own shares in accordance with the board of director’s proposal.

The number of shares purchased may never result in that the company’s holding of its own shares exceeds 5 percent of the total number of shares in the company. Transfers made with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights may only be made in order to finance consideration to be paid in connection with acquisitions of companies or businesses. The purpose of the authorisation to purchase and sell the company’s own shares, and the reason for accepting a deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, is to increase the board of directors’ flexibility to timely enable acquisitions by payment with own shares in order to recapitalise the company and/or involve new owners of strategic importance for the company and/or to acquire other companies or businesses.
