· to elect Ernst & Young Aktiebolag as auditor for the period until
the end of the next Annual General Meeting.

Proposal regarding minority shareholders' auditor and special examiner

Shareholders representing approximately 10.2% of the shares in the
company, proposed that a minority shareholders' auditor be appointed
by the Swedish Companies Registration Office, to participate in the
audit together with the company's auditor for the time up to and
until the next Annual General Meeting. The proposal was supported by
holders representing more than 10% of the shares in the company,
which means that shareholders may apply for the appointment of a
minority shareholders' auditor by the Swedish Companies Registration
Office.

Shareholders representing approximately 10.2% of the shares in the
company proposed that a special examiner be appointed by the Swedish
Companies Registration Office, for examination of the following:

a. the Board of Directors' management of the company during the
financial year 2015 and the period of time up until the Annual
General Meeting (April 13, 2016);

b. the company's or any of its subsidiaries' agreements, arrangements,
promises, undertakings, discussions, and/or resolutions, measures or
actions (or non-resolutions, non-measures or non-actions) in relation
to Canon or any entity or person affiliated with Canon, in order to
investigate whether the Board of Directors, any sole Board member,
the CEO and/or other persons of the senior management have acted in
the company's and shareholders' interests and in accordance with the
Companies Act, the Swedish Corporate Governance Code and other
relevant regulations; and

c. the Board of Directors', any sole Board member's, the CEO's and
other persons in the senior management's decisions and other actions
in relation to the company's action of Citilog in January 2016 and
furthermore, during the financial year 2015 and the period of time up
until the Annual General Meeting (April 13, 2016), in relation to
mergers, acquisitions, financing, capitalization and/or
re-structurings that the company and/or the group (i.e. the company
and its subsidiaries) have carried out, planned or are planning, in
order to investigate whether the Board of Directors, sole Board
members, the CEO and/or other person of the senior management have
acted i) with due regard of the business and financial position of
the company and the group (i.e. the company and its subsidiaries) and
ii) the company's and the shareholders' interests and in accordance
with the Companies Act and other relevant regulations.

The proposal was supported by holders representing more than 10% of
the shares in the company, which means that shareholders may apply
for the appointment of a special examiner by the Swedish Companies
Registration Office.

Resolution regarding principles for determining salaries and other
remuneration to the President and other members of the company
management

The Annual General Meeting approved the Board's proposed principles
for determining salaries and other remuneration to the President and
other members of the company management. The resolution by the Annual
General Meeting implies that the principles for determining salaries
and other remuneration to the President and other members of the
company management that were adopted by the Annual General Meeting in
2015 shall, in all material respects, continue to be in force.
However, a difference from the previous principles is that the
possibility of introducing a "stay on board remuneration" has been
removed, since such remuneration previously has been agreed and
implemented, and there is no intention to introduce any further "stay
on board remuneration".
