shares. A share issue may involve the issue of shares against payment or free
of charge.

of its incentive system.

conditions regarding the issuance and transfer of the Company's own shares
and rights, including on whether the possible subscription price is credited
fully or partly to the invested unrestricted equity or to the share capital.

deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive rights to the Company's shares
