A. MATTERS ON THE AGENDA OF THE GENERAL MEETING                                 

At the General Meeting, the following matters will be considered:               

1. Opening of the meeting                                                       

2. Calling the meeting to order                                                 

3. Election of persons to scrutinize the minutes and to supervise the counting  
of votes                                                                        

4. Recording the legality of the meeting                                        

5. Recording the attendance at the meeting and the list of votes                

6. Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares       

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting would authorise the    
Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of a maximum of 30,000,000 new     
shares in one or more share issues against payment. The authorisation would     
grant the Board of Directors the right to decide on a directed issue in         
deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive right.                             

In accordance with the proposal, the authorisation could be used for improving  
the company's capital structure, financing business arrangements and expansion  
investments or for other purposes determined by the Board of Directors. The     
authorisation could not be used for creating share-based incentive programs.    

The Board of Directors would be authorised to resolve on all other terms and    
conditions of a share issue.                                                    

The authorisation would be effective until 31 December 2010 and it would not    
supersede earlier authorisations.                                               

7. Closing of the meeting
