East Capital Explorer AB: The Nomination Committee proposes Lars O Grönstedt as new Chairman of East Capital Explorer

The Nomination Committee for East Capital Explorer has resolved to propose to
the Annual General Meeting 2015 that the Board comprise six members and to
propose the re-election of Peter Elam Håkansson, Lars O Grönstedt, Liselotte
Hjorth and Alexander Ikonnikov and the election of Mikael Nachemson and Jenny
Rosberg. The current Chairman Paul Bergqvist and Louise Hedberg have declined
re-election. The Nomination Committee proposes Lars O Grönstedt, Board Member
since 2012, as new Chairman of the Board of East Capital Explorer and Mikael
Nachemson as its Vice Chairman.
"Paul Bergqvist has, with his extensive operational experience and knowledge
of consumer markets and Eastern Europe, made a much appreciated contribution
to the company and its shareholders during his years as Chairman since the
listing of East Capital Explorer in 2007. I would also like to thank Louise
Hedberg for her contribution to the Board, not least when it comes to ESG and
corporate governance issues", said Committee Chairman Peter Elam Håkansson.

The Nomination Committee motivates the proposed election of Lars O Grönstedt
as Chairman by primarily his extensive experience from the financial markets,
his strong integrity and good knowledge of the Company. Furthermore, the
Nomination Committee considers that the proposed new elections of Mikael
Nachemson and Jenny Rosberg add valuable know-how and experience from
international capital markets, private equity management and
transaction-intensive sectors. In addition, the proposals strengthen the
Board's overall independence.

Mikael Nachemson has extensive Board experience, most recently as Executive
Chairman of the Russian-Ukrainian agricultural company Agrokultura AB. Today
he is adjunct Board Member of Acando AB and Board Member of RAM Rational
Asset Management AB. Prior positions include CEO of the investment companies
Bure Equity AB and AB Custos, and CEO of E. Öhman J:or AB.

Jenny Rosberg is the CEO of ROPA Management. Jenny has more than 25 years of
operational and international experience in the financial sector and the IT
sector. Prior positions include, among others, Senior Vice President at
Nasdaq OMX Group, Inc., Vice President of Nasdaq OMX Nordic Ltd. and Board
Member of the local Nordic exchanges. As Senior Vice President, she was
responsible for Europe and the business segments Global Corporate Client
Group, Listings&Capital Markets as well as Corporate Solutions.

Given that the Nomination Committee has decided to propose a Vice Chairman,
and in addition to what is stated in the Notice, the Nomination Committee
proposes that the remuneration to the Vice Chairman of the Board shall amount
to SEK 550,000.

East Capital Explorer's Nomination Committee comprises Peter Elam Håkansson,
East Capital; Pia Axelsson, Fourth Swedish National Pension Fund; Pehr-Olof
Malmström, Danske Capital; Paul Bergqvist, Chairman of East Capital Explorer
and Mathias Pedersen, East Capital.

Stockholm on April 21, 2015.
