At their Annual General Meeting on 23 April 2008, ÅF shareholders
gave the Board a mandate to buy back up to 230,000 of the company's
class B shares before the 2009 Annual General Meeting.

In a decision based on this mandate, the Board of ÅF AB, today
resolved to acquire a maximum of 230,000 class B shares, during the
period of 11th of November 2008 until the 5th of May 2009. The shares
will be purchased for cash on the OMX Nordic Exchange in Stockholm at
a price that falls within the registered share price range at the
time of purchase.

The purpose of the buy-backs is to safeguard the company's
obligations with regard to the Performance-Related Share Programme
2008 that was approved by the 2008 AGM.

ÅF does not currently own any of the company's class B shares.
