* Implementation of LTV 2015, with the same structure as previous programs.
The program comprises in total up to 28.4 million B shares and includes the
Stock Purchase Plan for all employees, the Key Contributor Retention Plan
and the Executive Performance Stock Plan. All plans are based on the
employees' own investment in Ericsson shares. If the shares are retained
for a period of three years and the employment remains, the participants
obtain matching shares from the company. The following performance criteria
were resolved for the Executive Performance Stock Plan 2015; net sales
compound annual growth rate between 2 and 6 percent (2014-2017), operating
income compound annual growth rate between 5 and 15 percent (2014-2017),
and cash conversion at or above 70 percent annually (2015, 2016 and 2017).
* Transfer of up to 23.5 million B shares during the period November 2015 up
to and including November 2019, free of consideration, to employees covered
by the terms of the LTV 2015.
* Transfer of up to 4.9 million B shares on Nasdaq Stockholm, prior to the
AGM 2016, at a price within the at each time prevailing price interval for
the share, to cover certain expenses, mainly social security charges.

The Company has approximately 3.3 billion shares in issue. The 28.4 million B
shares allocated for LTV 2015 now correspond to less than 1 percent of the
total number of outstanding shares.
