Jonas Ågrup, CFO +46 (0)70-333 04 95 Viktor Svensson, Director, Corporate Information +46 (0)70-657 20 26 At their Annual General Meeting held on 5 May 2010 the shareholders in ÅF AB resolved to implement a performance-related share savings programme for up to 100 key individuals within the company, including the President/CEO. The purpose of this long-term incentive programme is to motivate ÅF employees to remain loyal to the company and to continue to perform strongly in their professional roles. Employees who participate in the performance-related share programme for 2010 can reserve a sum corresponding to a maximum of 5 percent of their gross salary for the purchase of ÅF class B shares on the OMX Nordic Exchange in Stockholm over a 12-month period with effect from the implementation of the programme. By the time the application period had expired 98 ÅF employees in senior positions had expressed an interest in purchasing approximately 36,000 shares for the entire 2010 programme. In the event that the performance targets that have been set up are achieved, some 247,000 shares will be transferred to the employees without consideration during 2013 and 2014. This can lead to a 0.6% dilution of earnings per share. Information about the proposal in its entirety is available on the ÅF AB homepage - afconsult.com.
