The Board of Directors is authorized, at its discretion, to resolve the final subscription price as well as all terms for the share issues and granting of the special rights entitling to shares.

The authorization does not invalidate prior resolved and registered authorizations made at the General Meeting of Shareholders regarding share issues and issuances of option rights and other special rights entitling to shares.

The authorization may be used for the future financing needs of the Company, developing the equity structure, minimize or reduce debts and possible mergers and acquisitions and other corporate purposes.
