The General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares as well as the issuance of options and other rights entitling to shares. The authorisation consists of up to 20,000,000 shares in the aggregate.
The authorisation does not exclude the Board of Directors' right to decide on a directed issue. The authorisation was proposed to be used for material arrangements from the company's point of view, such as financing or implementing business arrangements or investments or for other such purposes determined by the Board of Directors in which case a weighty financial reason for issuing shares, options or other rights and possibly directing a share issue would exist.
The Board of Directors is authorised to resolve on all other terms and conditions of the issuance of shares, options and other rights entitling to shares as referred to in Chapter 10 of the Companies Act, including the payment period, grounds for the determination of the subscription price and subscription price or allocation of shares, option or other rights free of charge or that the subscription price may be paid besides in cash also by other assets either partially or entirely. The authorisation is effective until 30 June 2018. The authorisation supersedes earlier authorisations.
