It shall be announced in Svenska Dagbladet that notice of a General Meeting has been given.

The Board further proposes that the resolution by the General Meeting, to change the Articles of Association as aforementioned, shall be conditioned upon the entering into force of a change in the Swedish Companies Act (SFS 2005:551) regarding notice of General Meetings, making the proposed change of section 7 in the Articles of Association compliant with the Swedish Companies Act.
