If a share has passed into the possession of someone who is not previously a shareholder in the Company, the said share shall without delay be offered for pre-emption to the shareholders by means of notification in writing to the Board of the Company.

When a share has thus been offered for pre-emption, the Board or the Managing Director shall immediately notify the Company's shareholders thereof in the manner provided for with respect to notices to the share­holders, requesting those, who may wish to avail themselves of their right to pre-empt, to inform the Board thereof in writing within two months from the date on which the Board was notified that the share had been trans­ferred. If more than one shareholder inform the Board accordingly, the right of priority between such shareholders shall be decided by drawing of lots by a Notary Public. However, if more than one share has been offered for pre-emption at the same time, the shares shall first as far as possible be divided evenly among those who wish to exercise the pre-emption.

The pre-emption right may be exercised only for all of the shares which are subject to the acquisition.

If no agreement can be reached regarding such value, the value shall be determined by arbitration in accordance with the Swedish Arbitration Act.

If no one notifies his wish to pre-empt a share thus offered within the time stipulated or if, after the pre-emption sum for such a share has been determined, the share is not pre-empted within one month thereafter, the person who made the said offer for pre-emption has the right to be registered as the owner of the share.
