The Company will without compensation transfer the necessary amount of shares so that all fractional shares may be rounded up to one whole share, however limited to 150,066 shares, which is the number of shares that the Company holds as treasury stock. In case 150,066 shares is not sufficient to make all fractional-share be rounded up to one whole share, then the shareholder Nerland Investment AS will transfer the necessary amount so that all fractional shares may be rounded up to the nearest whole share.

The share consolidation was originally proposed as 1000 to one share, but the shareholders` meeting resolved a consolidation from 100 to one share. This change also affected the proposed employee share option program and proxy related to the program.
