Each previously owned share confers the right to one (1) subscription right. Five (5) subscription rights entitles subscription for three (3) new shares. The subscription price to be paid shall be SEK 2.18 for each new share.
The record date for entitlement to participate in the rights issue with pre-emptive right shall be 19 April 2016.

Authorisation of the board of directors to issue new shares
The meeting resolved in accordance with the proposal of the board of directors to authorise the board of directors until the next annual shareholders' meeting to, on one or more occasions, resolve to increase the Company's share capital by issue of no more than 17,500,000 new shares. The board of directors may deviate from the shareholders' preferential rights. The reason for the board of directors' authorisation to deviate from the shareholders' preferential rights is to enable the company's possibilities to raise new capital and to take advantage of future opportunities to attract new long-term owners of strategic importance to the company, as well as to finance the Company's growth strategy. The authorization also includes the right to decide on payment for the issued shares in kind, set-off or other conditions as referred in Chap. 13 Sec. 5 item 6 of the Swedish Companies Act (Sw. Aktiebolagslagen (2005:551)). At a deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, the issue rate shall be determined in accordance with market conditions.
