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 7.50 per share (6.00). The record date was set at 12 April
and the dividend is expected to be distributed through Euroclear on 15 April
2016. 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: Ingrid Jonasson
Blank, Anna Engebretsen, Jack Forsgren, Mats Holgerson, Gustav Lindner, Jan
Pettersson, Mats Qviberg and Jon Risfelt and new election of Eva Cederbalk and
Laila Freivalds. The AGM also re-elected Mats Qviberg as Chairman. After the
meeting, the Board appointed Jan Pettersson as Deputy Chairman.

The AGM resolved the directors’ fees as follows: the Chairman of the Board and
the Deputy Chairman receive SEK 320,000 each, other Board members receive SEK
200,000 each, the chairman of the Audit Committee receives SEK 75,000, the
members of the Audit Committee receive SEK 35,000 each, the chairman of the
Compensation Committee receives SEK 25,000 and the members of the Compensation
Committee receive 10,000 each. Above is a fee increase of
SEK 20,000 per member and SEK 25,000 for the chairman of the Audit Committee and
SEK 10,000 per committee member.

KPMG AB was re-elected as the public accounting firm for the period up until
the next AGM in 2017.

Issue of shares

The AGM authorised the Board of Directors to increase the company’s share
capital and to give Société de Participations Financières Groupe Arnold Kontz
the right to subscribe for new shares. Payment will be made for the new shares
by offsetting of a claim on the company of
EUR 12,500,000. The claim will be converted to SEK and the exercise price will
be set at 95% of the average price of the Bilia share during the period 18-22
April 2016. The background to the decision is an agreement where Bilia acquires
Arnold Kontz’s BMW and MINI operation in Luxemburg, for which partial payment
will be made with shares in Bilia.

Incentive programme

The Board of Directors resolved to institute an incentive programme (Warrant
Programme 2016) by means of a directed issue of 140,000 warrants with the right
to subscribe for an equal number of shares at market price. The warrants are
being issued to the wholly owned subsidiary Bilia Incentive AB and will be
offered to senior officers, other members of management and certain other
employees.

Guidelines for remuneration to Group Management

Proposed guidelines for remuneration to the Group Management were adopted by
the AGM. The guidelines are unchanged from last year.

Acquisition or transfer of own shares

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