Amendment of the Articles of Association

The company's shares belong to the book-entry system. Company may have class K
shares and class A shares. Each class K share entitles the holder to twenty

other respects, the share classes have equal rights. Based on request made
by its holder to the Board of Directors, class K share may be converted into
class A share by using conversion ratio of 1:1.

Acquisition of the company's own shares

The Annual General Meeting resolved to authorize the Board of Directors to
decide on acquisition of the company's own shares. The Board of Directors is
authorized to repurchase a maximum of 908,685 company's own class A shares
and/or accept company's own class A shares as pledge on the company's
unrestricted equity. This amount corresponds to approximately 5.0 per cent of
the company's shares. The acquisition may take place in one or more
instalments. The purchase price shall not be lower than the lowest price paid
for the company's class A shares in multilateral trading on the acquisition
date and shall not be higher than the highest price paid for the company's
class A shares in multilateral trading on the acquisition date. In connection
with the execution of the acquisition of own shares derivatives, share
lending or other contracts customary to capital markets and permitted by laws
and regulations may be entered into at price determined by the markets. The
authorization entitles the Board of Directors to decide on the acquisition in
deviation from the shareholders' shareholding (directed acquisition).

Shares may be repurchased to be used as consideration in possible acquisitions
or other business arrangements of the company, to finance investments, as
part of the company's incentive scheme or to be retained, otherwise conveyed
or cancelled. The Board of Directors shall decide on other terms and
conditions relating to acquisition of own shares. The authorization is valid
for eighteen (18) months from the decision of the General Meeting.

Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide on issuance of shares, options
and other special rights

The Annual General Meeting authorized the Board of Directors to decide, in one
or more transactions, on the issuance of shares and the issuance of options
and other special rights entitling to shares referred to in Chapter 10
Section 1 of the Companies Act as follows:
The number of class A shares to be issued based on the authorization may in
total amount to a maximum of 3,634,740 shares, representing approximately 20
per cent of the company's shares on the date of this notice. The Board of
Directors decides on all the terms and conditions of the issuances of shares
and of options and other special rights entitling to shares. The
authorization concerns both the issuance of new shares as well as transfer of
treasury shares. The issuance of shares and of options and other special
rights entitling to shares referred to in Chapter 10 Section 1 of the
Companies Act may be carried out in deviation from the shareholders'
pre-emptive rights (directed issue), if there is a weighty financial reason
for the company, such as using the shares as consideration in future
acquisitions or other business arrangements or to finance investments. The
authorization cannot be used for the company's incentive scheme.

Shares may be conveyed either against payment or free of charge in the
company's share issues. A directed share issue may be a share issue without
payment only if there is an especially weighty reason for the same both for
the company and in regard to the interests of all shareholders in the
company. The authorization cancels the authorization granted by the Annual
General Meeting on 19 March 2014 to decide on the issuance of shares as well
as the issuance of special rights entitling to shares. The authorization is
valid until 30 June 2017.

Remuneration scheme for the company's key personnel

The Annual General Meeting resolved on a remuneration scheme for the company's
key personnel as follows:

The amount of remuneration to be paid based on the remuneration scheme is
determined based on returns received by the company from its portfolio
companies. The right to remuneration is triggered per portfolio company when
the company has received a return from the portfolio company equal to its
total investment in the portfolio company added with 50 per cent either
through sale of shares in the portfolio company, distribution of the
portfolio company's assets and/or other return (e.g. interest income)
received from the portfolio company. From the returns exceeding the
abovementioned sum, a maximum of 5 per cent in total may be paid as
remuneration to persons participating in the remuneration scheme.

The remuneration scheme is in force for the years 2015-2025. The remuneration
may be paid in cash and/or in form of insurance premiums payable for the
group life insurance policy to be possibly taken for the persons
participating in the remuneration scheme or in other form of compensation
resolved by the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors selects the persons who may participate in the
remuneration scheme from the management of the company as well as from other
possible key persons of the company. The Board of Directors resolves the
persons participating in the remuneration scheme, decides on payment and
allocation of remuneration as well as all other terms and conditions of the
scheme.

The minutes of the Annual General Meeting will be available at the company's
website on 4 May 2015 at the latest.
