Conclude the meeting Decisions proposed by the Board Item 8 – directed new share issue The Board of Directors proposes that the AGM decide on a directed new share issue of no more than 4,553,335 shares. Deviating from the preferential rights of shareholders, only shareholders in Fastighets AB Tornet (publ) (Tornet) shall be entitled to subscribe for shares under the offer. Payment for subscribed shares shall be made in kind in the form of shares in Tornet. Each share in Tornet shall entitle the holder to one (1) share in the Company. In the event that all outstanding shares in Tornet (excluding those owned by Fabege) are exchanged for Fabege shares, the Company’s share capital would increase by SEK 227,666,750. It is proposed that the new shares entitle the holder to a dividend as of the date of the decision on the private placement (see also under Item 10 below): The proposed directed new share issue is related to the Company’s offer to the shareholders of Tornet for the acquisition of all shares in Tornet. More information about the offer is found in the press release from 3 February 2006, which is available on the Company’s website, www.wihlborgs.se The full terms of the Company’s offer to the shareholders of Tornet will be presented in a prospectus produced by the Company with an estimated release date of 10 March 2006. Item 10 b) and d) – Dividend and record date The Board proposes that the meeting decide on a dividend of SEK 7.50 per share for 2005. The proposed record date for payment of the dividend is Friday 7 April 2006. If the meeting approves the proposal, it is estimated the cash dividend will be distributed by VPC AB on 12 April 2006. Payment of dividends on shares issued under the directed new share issue proposed by the Board (Item 8 above) may legally be made only after the Swedish Companies Registration Office (Bolagsverket) has registered the increase in share capital resulting from the new share issue. Payment of dividends on the new shares may therefore be delayed in the event that Bolagsverket has not registered the increase in share capital by 12 April 2006. In such case, the dividend on the new shares will be paid as soon as possible after registration by Bolagsverket. Item 16 - Principles for the remuneration and other employment terms of the Company’s management The Company’s management refers to the Chief Executive Officer and other members of Group management. The principles for the remuneration and other employment terms for Group management proposed by the Board are as follows. The remuneration 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 is subject to a ceiling of one basic amount per year and employee. Any compensation in addition to the fixed salary should be subject to a ceiling and related to the fixed salary. At present, there are no agreements on variable compensation for the Company’s management, nor has any variable compensation been paid in 2005. Non-monetary benefits should be limited to reasonable benefits aimed at facilitating the tasks performed. The retirement age for the Chief Executive Officer is 60 years. The pension is 75 per cent of the pensionable salary up to the normal retirement age of 65 years. The cost of this commitment has been expensed in previous years’ income statements. From 60-65 years the entitlement is 35 per cent of the pensionable salary. For other members of the Company’ management the occupational pension plan (ITP) applies and the retirement age is 65 years. Termination salary and severance pay combined should not exceed 24 months. Severance pay should normally be offset against other income. All members of the Board except the CEO are working on establishing a set of principles for the remuneration and other employment terms of the Company’s management and preparing a decision on the CEO’s remuneration and other employment terms. Item 17 – Change of Articles of Association The Board proposes that the meeting decide on several changes aimed at adapting the Articles of Association to the provisions of the new Companies Act (SFS 2005:551). The main changes are as follows: - The provision on the par value of a share is withdrawn and replaced by a provision stipulating that the number of shares must be at least 33,400,000 and not exceed 133,600,000. - The provision on notification of an Annual General Meeting is amended so that notification is made by advertisement in Post- och Inrikes Tidningar and Svenska Dagbladet. - The record date for the right to participate in the AGM is changed to the fifth workday before the AGM. - A provision stipulating that a person who is not included in the register of shareholders shall have the right to attend the AGM subject to terms to be decided by the Board of Directors. - The provision requiring that the AGM chairman provide information on Board nominees’ assignments on behalf of other companies and organisations is withdrawn. - The record clause is adjusted to the new legal definition of VPC-affiliated company (avstämningsbolag). - The term “Ordinary General Meeting” is replaced by “Annual General Meeting”. Item 18 – Acquisition and transfer 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 transfer ownership of such shares. 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 transfer ownership of shares is subject to a limit of no more than 10 percent of all outstanding shares at any time. The Company is entitled to transfer shares on the Stockholm Stock Exchange and, deviating from the preferential rights of shareholders, to third parties in connection with acquisitions of properties or businesses. Payment for transferred 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 transfer shares in conjunction with the financing of acquisitions of properties or businesses, by paying with the Company’s own shares. Item 19 – Decision on commission-free trading For the purpose of achieving a conducive ownership structure and improving liquidity in the Company’s shares, the Board proposes that the AGM approve that the Company’s shareholders, upon a decision by the Board, 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 the offering be left to the discretion of the Board, with the condition that the offering, if implemented, must be completed before the 2007 AGM.
