Decisions proposed by the Board

Item 8 b) and d) – Dividend and record date
The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting decide on a dividend of SEK 4 per share for 2007.

The proposed record date for payment of the dividend is 8 April 2008. If the meeting approves the pro­posal, it is estimated the dividend will be distributed by VPC AB on 11 April 2008.

Item 9 – Decide on a reduction of the share capital through withdrawal of shares owned by the Company and a bonus issue
The Board proposes that the meeting resolve to reduce the Company’s share capital by SEK 260,794,180.50 through the withdrawal of 9,150,673 shares. The purpose of the reduction is to transfer the reduction amount to a fund enabling use of the capital as unrestricted equity. The reduction will be effected through the withdrawal of 9,150,673 shares acquired by the Company on the basis of Board decisions authorised at previous general meetings.

The Board proposes that the AGM decide on a bonus issue in accordance with the following. The bonus issue shall increase the share capital by SEK 270,893,196.80, without the issue of new shares. The purpose of the bonus issue is to restore the share capital after the reduction effected in accordance with the pre­sent agenda item, rounded up, to obtain the desired quota value for the Company. The Company’s share capital will be increased through a transfer from unrestricted equity.

Item 14 - Principles of compensation and other employment terms for Company management
Company management refers to the Chief Executive Officer and other members of Group management. The entire Board of Directors with the exception of the CEO is responsible for drawing up a draft state­ment of principles governing compensation and other terms of employment for Company management and for preparing decisions on the CEO’s compensation and other terms of employment.

The principles of compensation and other employment terms for Company management proposed by the Board are as follows:

The compensation should be market-based and competitive. Responsibilities and performance that are in the interest of the shareholders should be reflected in the compensation. The fixed salary should be reviewed each year. Fabege has a profit-sharing foundation that covers all employees of the Company. Allocations to the profit-sharing foundation should be based on the achieved return on equity and are subject to a ceiling of one base amount per year per employee. Any compensation in addition to the fixed salary should be subject to a ceiling and related to the fixed salary. Any other benefits should constitute a limited part of the compensation.

The retirement age should be 65. Pension benefits should correspond to the ITP occupational pension plan or be contribution-based with a maximum contribution of 35 per cent of the pensionable salary. Termination salary and severance pay combined must not exceed 24 months.

Item 15 – Acquisition and assignment of shares owned by the Company
The Board proposes that the AGM authorise the Board, for a period ending no later than the next AGM, to buy back shares in the Company and assign such shares to other parties. Share buybacks are subject to a limit of no more than 10 per cent of the total number of outstanding shares at any time. Acquisition must be made by purchase on the Stockholm Stock Exchange. The right to assign shares is subject to a limit of no more than 10 percent of all outstanding shares at any time. Assignment may be made on the Stockholm Stock Exchange and, derogating from the preferential rights of shareholders, to third parties in connection with the acquisition of properties or businesses. Payment for assigned shares may be made in cash, in kind, by offset or in another manner subject to terms and conditions. The authorisation is aimed at enabling the Company to continuously adapt its capital requirements and thereby improve shareholder value, and to assign shares in conjunction with the financing of acquisitions of properties or businesses, by paying with the Company’s own shares.

Item 16 – Commission-free trading
For the purpose of achieving an appropriate ownership structure and improving liquidity in the Company’s shares, the Board proposes that the AGM approve that the Company’s shareholders, if the Board should so decide, be offered to buy or sell free of commission the number of shares required to achieve a shareholding consisting of round lots (one round lot = 100 shares). It is proposed that a deci­sion on the period and precise terms of such offer be left to the discretion of the Board, with the condi­tion that the offer, if implemented, be completed before the 2009 AGM.
