Accounts and dividend

After adopting the Income Statement and Balance Sheet and the Consolidated
Income Statement and Consolidated Balance Sheet, the AGM adopted the proposed
cash dividend of SEK 9.00 per share (6.00). The record date was set at 15 April
and the dividend is expected to be distributed through Euroclear on
22 April 2014. The remaining earnings were carried forward to a new account.

Discharge from liability and election of Board of Directors and public
accounting firm

The AGM discharged the members of the Board and the Managing Director from
liability for the financial year. The AGM resolved to re-elect the entire Board
of Directors, consisting of: Per Avander, Ingrid Jonasson Blank, Anna
Engebretsen, Jack Forsgren, Fredrik Grevelius, Mats Holgerson, Svante Paulsson,
Jan Pettersson, Mats Qviberg and Jon Risfelt. The AGM also re-elected Mats
Qviberg as Chairman. After the meeting, the Board appointed Jan Pettersson as
Deputy Chairman.

The AGM resolved that the directors’ fees should be as follows: the Chairman of
the Board receives
SEK 300,000, the Deputy Chairman SEK 300,000, other Board members who do not
receive a salary from the company receive SEK 180,000 each, the chairman of the
Audit Committee receives SEK 50,000, the members of the Audit Committee receive
SEK 25,000 each, and the chairman of the Compensation Committee receives SEK
25,000. Fees to chairmen and committees are thus unchanged. Remuneration to the
Deputy Chairman of the Board was raised by SEK 25,000, while remuneration to
other Board members was raised by SEK 5,000 compared with last year.

KPMG AB was re-elected as the public accounting firm for the period up until
the next AGM in 2015.

the AGM. The guidelines are unchanged from last year.

adopted. The number of members can vary between 4 and 5 and they shall consist
of major shareholders along with the Chairman of the Board. The instruction
shall apply until further notice.

Acquisition or transfer of own shares

The AGM authorised the Board of Directors to a) resolve to buy back the
company’s own shares, whereby Bilia’s holding may never exceed 10 per cent of
the total number of shares, and b) resolve to transfer acquired shares, either
as a means of payment in conjunction with an acquisition or by direct sale on
the stock exchange.
