The previous directors Peter Nilsson and Harry Klagsbrun have declined re-election. The nomination committee has proposed that Anders Bülow is elected new chairman of the board. The nomination committee has furthermore proposed that the chairman of the board of directors shall receive SEK 500,000 and other directors appointed by the annual general meeting SEK 250,000 each. In addition, the chairman of the remuneration committee shall receive SEK 50,000 and the other members of the remuneration committee SEK 25,000 each, and the chairman of the audit committee shall receive SEK 100,000 and the other members of the audit committee SEK 50,000. The proposed board remuneration, including the remuneration for work in the board committees, is unchanged. The nomination committee has further proposed that fair remuneration to the auditor is to be paid as charged. Information about the proposed directors can be found on www.duni.com and will also be presented at the annual general meeting.
Item 15 - The proposal by the board of directors for a resolution on amendments to the articles of associationThe board of directors proposes that paragraph 10 in the articles of association, to the extent it relates to the means of convening a general meeting, shall be amended so to set out: "Notice convening a general meeting shall be given by announcement in Post- och Inrikes Tidningar and on the company's website. It shall be announced in Svenska Dagbladet that notice of a general meeting has been made."
The resolution of the annual general meeting on amendments to the articles of association in accordance with the above, shall be subject to the entering into force of amendments to the Swedish Companies Act regarding means of convening a general meeting, to the effect that the proposed wordings are consistent with the Swedish Companies Act.
Item 16 - The proposal by the board of directors to authorize the board of directors to resolve on new issues of shares, warrants and/or convertiblesThe board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting authorizes the board of directors, until the next annual general meeting, on one or several occasions, with or without deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, to resolve on new issues of shares, warrants or convertibles. Resolutions that are passed by making use of the authorization may not, in the aggregate, involve an increase of the share capital by more than SEK 5,800,000 (distributed on not more than 4,640,000 new shares). The authorization shall also include the right to resolve on new issues where the shares are to be paid for with non-cash consideration or through set-off of a claim, or otherwise with terms and conditions pursuant to the Companies Act Ch. 13 Sec. 7, Ch. 14 Sec. 9, or Ch. 15 Sec. 9.
The reasons for deviating from the shareholders' preferential rights shall be to enable directed share issues for the purpose of acquisitions of complete or part of companies or businesses, alternatively for raising capital to be used for such acquisitions. The basis for the subscription price shall be the market price of the share.
The proposals under items 15 and 16 are subject to the resolution by the annual general meeting being supported by shareholders representing at least 2/3 of the votes cast as well as the number of shares represented at the meeting. There are in the aggregate 46,999,032 shares outstanding in Duni carrying one vote each; accordingly there are 46,999,032 votes.
The accounts, the auditor's report, the board of director's reasoned statement and the auditor's statement regarding the earlier guidelines for remuneration to the executive management, and the complete proposals for decisions with respect to items 10b and 15-18 will be available to the shareholders as of latest 22 April 2009 at the company and on the company's website www.duni.com, and will also be distributed to shareholders that have requested it, and that have informed of their address.
