The Board of Directors' Proposed Resolutions

Item 2  The chairman of the board of directors, Hannu Ryöppönen, is proposed
to serve as chairman of the general meeting.

Item 7 The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to
amend the articles of association as follows: 

Article 4

The Company's  share capital  shall  be The Company's share  capital shall  be 
not less  than  three  hundred  million not less  than  four  hundred  million 
Swedish kronor  (SEK  300,000,000)  and Swedish kronor  (SEK 400,000,000)  and 
not more  than twelve  hundred  million not more than sixteen hundred  million 
Swedish kronor (SEK 1,200,000,000).     Swedish kronor (SEK 1,600,000,000).
Article 5, Paragraph 1
Current wording                         Proposed wording
The number of shares shall not be fewer The number of shares shall be not less
than one  hundred  and  twenty  million than   one   hundred   sixty   million 
(120,000,000) and  not more  than  four (160,000,000) and  not more  than  six 
hundred     and     eighty      million hundred forty million (640,000,000).

The reason for the amendment is to facilitate resolution on a new share  issue 
under the authorisation to the board of directors proposed under item 8 below.

Item 8 The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to
authorise the board of directors to resolve, on one or several occasions  from 
now until the next annual general meeting, on new share issues with or without
deviation from  the shareholders'  preferential  rights. By  such  resolutions 
under this  authorisation, the  board of  directors shall  have the  right  to 
issue, at maximum, the number of shares of each class of share that is allowed
be emitted under the articles  of association in force  at such time and  that

maximum, the amount within the share capital limits stipulated in the articles
of association then in force.

In accordance  with the  statements made  in the  company's press  release  of 
11February 2013, the reason  for the authorisation is  to allow the board  of 
directors to resolve on a new share issue of approximately SEK five billion to

will be sent  free of charge  upon request to  shareholders who provide  their 
mailing address.

of shareholders representing at least two-thirds of both the votes cast at the
general meeting and the shares represented at the general meeting.

The CEO, or the  person the CEO  appoints, shall be  authorised to make  minor 
amendments  to  the  resolutions  as  may  be  necessary  in  connection  with 
registration of the general meeting's  resolutions with the Swedish  Companies
