Kinnevik: Nomination Committee proposal of new Board directors for Kinnevik

Investment AB Kinnevik today announced that
the
Nomination Committee has proposed to elect
John Shakeshaft as new directors of the Board. It also proposes
the re-election
of Tom Boardman, Vigo Carlund, Dame Amelia Fawcett, Wilhelm Klingspor, Erik
Mitteregger and Cristina Stenbeck as directors of the Board.

John Shakeshaft has worked in top positions in Barings Bank, Lazard, Cardona
Lloyd and AMN Amro in a 25-year long banking career. He is a Board member of
Tele2, The Economy Bank NV, TT Electronics and holds a number of other Board
positions. He is also a member of the investment committee of Corestone AG
and the Council of Cambridge University.

"I am delighted to welcome John Shakeshaft to the Kinnevik Board. I have
worked closely with John on the Tele2 Board and with his experience and
familiarity with our group, he will be an excellent addition. He will also be
proposed as the Chairman of the Audit Committee", says Cristina Stenbeck,
Chairman of the Nomination Committee.

The Nomination Committee proposes the election of Cristina Stenbeck as
Chairman of the Board of Directors. Allen Sangines-Krause has informed the
Nomination Committee of his wish not to seek re-election at the Annual
General Meeting on May 12, 2014. Lorenzo Grabau will assume the position as
