    The Article authorizes the Board of Directors to increase share capital up to the amount of 100,000,000 nominal value, i.a. to use in relation to acquisition of new businesses. The amendment entails a lower amount of 75,000,000 nominal value, which corresponds to 9.7% of total issued shares, and the option to sell the new shares through an offering managed by a financial institution is added. The validity period of the authorization is shortened from 5 years to 18 months. Proposed changes are in line with European market practice.
