Based on the authorisation, the Board of Directors is entitled to issue or transfer, either by one or several resolutions, shares and/or special rights up to a maximum equivalent of 1,500,000 new shares so that the aforesaid shares and/or special rights could be used, e.g., for financing of company and business acquisitions or for financing of other business arrangements and investments, for the expansion of the ownership structure, paying of remuneration of the members of the Board of Directors and/or for the creating incentives for, or encouraging commitment in, personnel.
