shareholders as capital repayment from the reserve for invested unrestricted
equity of no more than EUR 0.23 per share, i.e. EUR 3,473,500.94 in total.

The Board of Directors can also decide not to use this authorisation. The

Board of Directors to decide on all other terms and conditions related to the
capital repayment. The authorisation is proposed to remain in effect until
the start of the subsequent Annual General Meeting, but not past 30 June
2017.

The intention of the Board of Directors is to decide upon the capital
repayment later during 2016, if the sale of the shares in the premises owned

15. Authorising the Board of Directors to resolve on the issuance of shares

The Board of Directors proposes to be authorised to resolve on one or more
issuances, which contain the right to issue new shares or dispose of the
shares in the possession of the company. The authorisation would consist of
up to 1,000,000 shares in the aggregate.

The Board of Directors would be authorised to decide on a directed issue. The
authorisation is proposed to be used for material arrangements from the
company's point of view, such as financing or implementing business
arrangements or investments or for other such purposes determined by the
Board of Directors in which case a weighty financial reason for issuing
shares would exist.

The Board of Directors would be authorised to resolve on all other terms and
conditions of the issuance of shares, including the payment period, grounds
for the determination of the subscription price and subscription price or

paid besides in cash also by other assets either partially or entirely.

The authorisation is proposed to be effective for 18 months from the close of
the Annual General Meeting. If this authorisation is approved, it shall
cancel the share issue authorisation granted to the Board of Directors by the
written resolution of the sole shareholder of the company on 10 March 2015.

16. Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of the
company's own shares

The Board of Directors proposes to be authorised to decide on the repurchase
of maximum of 1,000,000 company's own shares, in one or several instalments.

The shares would be repurchased with the company's unrestricted shareholders'
equity, and the repurchases will reduce funds available for distribution of
profits. The shares could be repurchased for example to develop the company's
capital structure, carry out or finance potential corporate acquisitions or
other business arrangements, to be used as a part of the company's incentive
programme or to be otherwise conveyed further, retained as treasury shares,
or cancelled.

Shares may be repurchased in accordance with the resolution of the Board of
Directors also in a proportion other than in which shares are owned by the
shareholders (directed acquisition), using funds belonging to the company's
unrestricted equity and at the market price of the shares quoted on regulated
market organized by Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd or otherwise established on the
market at the time of the repurchase.

The Board of Directors would decide how shares will be repurchased. Among
other means, derivatives may be used in acquiring the shares. According to
the authorisation, the Board of Directors decides on all other matters
related to the repurchase of the shares. The authorisation is proposed to be
effective for 18 months from the close of the Annual General Meeting. If this
authorisation is accepted, it shall cancel the authorisation to repurchase
the company's shares granted to the Board of Directors by the written
resolution of the sole shareholder of the company on 10 March 2015.
