Approval of guidelines for remuneration for the CEO and the management

The AGM approved the Board of Directors' proposal concerning
guidelines for remuneration for the CEO and the management team.
Pursuant to the guidelines, the CEO and the management team shall be
remunerated through fixed and variable remuneration and there shall
be an appropriate balance between the fixed and variable
remuneration. Fixed remuneration consists of base salary and
pensions. Fixed remuneration shall be market oriented, competitive
and sufficiently high to ensure that the reduction of any variable
remuneration down to zero is possible. The variable remuneration
component shall not exceed 100% of the fixed component of the total
remuneration for any staff member of Nordax. The individual variable
remuneration shall be based on individual performance, the result of
the relevant business unit and the overall business result of Nordax.

Approval of a Management Incentive Plan for 2016

The AGM approved the Board of Directors' proposal concerning a
Management Incentive Plan (MIP) for 2016. MIP 2016 is a program for
17 employees who are members of the Management Team. The MIP entails
that 40% of the award is paid out in cash the same year as the
resolution to award the remuneration has been adopted. 60% of the
award is deferred into restricted stock units that are restricted for
3 years or, with respect to the CEO, 5 years (the qualifying period).
If employment terminates before vesting, all deferred restricted
stock units will as a main rule lapse at the date on which the member
of the Management Team ceases to be staff member.

Approval of acquisition and transfer of own shares

The AGM approved the Board of Directors' proposal concerning
Authorisation for the Board of Directors to resolve on acquisition
and transfer of own shares.

Acquisitions may take place so that the maximum number of the own
shares at any time does not exceed ten percent of the total number of
shares in the company. All shares acquired may be transferred. The
authorisation may be utilised on one or more occasions, however not
longer than until the 2017 AGM.

The purpose of the authorisation to acquire shares is to enable the
company to satisfy obligations as a result of allocations of shares
to employees within the scope of the group's long-term management
incentive plans. In addition, the shares acquired under the
authorisation to acquire shares may be transferred, on Nasdaq
Stockholm or outside Nasdaq Stockholm, to be used as payment or
financing at possible future acquisitions of companies or businesses.

The AGM furthermore approved the Board of Directors' proposal that a
maximum of 455,000 shares may be transferred to the participants in
Management Incentive Plan 2016 and Management Incentive Plan 2015.
