Item 15 - Authorisation, Repurchase of Tornet's Shares

It is proposed that the Annual General Meeting authorise the board, during the period until the next Annual General Meeting of shareholders, provided that the board deems it appropriate, to make decisions on acquisition of Tornet's shares, with the right for the board to acquire as many shares as correspond to a tenth of the total number of shares. If such repurchase is made, it shall take place through the Stockholmsborsen. Acquisition shall take place at a price per share within the price interval registered on the stock exchange at the time of acquisition. It is proposed that the authorisation given to the board also include the possibility to transfer repurchased shares, departing from or complying with the shareholders' right of priority, as payment in connection with acquisition of a business or for financing of acquisition of a business or by canceling these. In the event of transfer of repurchased shares, the reason for the departure from the priority right is that the company can, in such a transfer, obtain more favourable terms than could otherwise have been obtained. The board shall be able to decide on a set-off or otherwise attach conditions to the transfer. It shall be possible to transfer shares for other compensation than money. In the event of cancellation of repurchased shares, the board shall put forward a proposal to a shareholders' meeting to decide on reduction of the share capital by cancellation. The purpose of any acquisitions shall be to achieve added value for the shareholders.

Shareholders may be accompanied by one or two assistants at the Annual General Meeting, provided that the shareholder has made a notification to this effect as provided for in the above Notification.

Coffee will be served from 2 p.m.
