The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting would authorise the    
Board of Directors to decide on a repurchase of a maximum of 1,186,000 of the   
Company's own shares. The repurchase authorisation shall be valid for 18 months 
after the decision of the General Meeting.                                      

The shares shall be repurchased for use as consideration in future acquisitions 
or other arrangements related to the Company's business, as financing for       
investments or as part of the Company's incentive program or to be held by the  
Company, to be conveyed by other means or to be cancelled. The Company's own    
shares shall be repurchased otherwise than in proportion to the holdings of the 
shareholders by using the non-restricted equity through public trading on OMX

3. PROPOSAL OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO AUTHORISE THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO

The Company's own shares held by the Company may be conveyed either against     
payment or for free. The shares may be conveyed to the Company's shareholders in
proportion to their current shareholdings in the Company or waiving the         
shareholder's pre-emption right, through a directed share issue if the Company  
has a weighty financial reason to do so, such as using the shares as            
consideration in future acquisitions or other arrangements related to the       
Company's business, as financing investments or as part of the Company's        
incentive program.
