Resolution concerning remuneration guidelines for senior executives (Item 18)
The board proposes that the AGM pass a resolution on the following remuneration guidelines for senior executives.

Basic salary
The basic salary shall be determined by the individual executive's responsibilities, experience and results achieved. The basic salary is revised annually.

Variable pay
The variable pay is based on achieved predetermined operational objectives, the wide majority of which correspond to financial targets. The variable remuneration is paid in the form of variable pay to each senior executive at an amount corresponding to a maximum of 50 percent of basic salary. 

The board also has the right to design variable pay systems so that the total variable remuneration to the CEO is an amount equal to a maximum of 100 percent of basic salary, provided that such variable pay is linked to well defined commitments to purchase shares in Cybercom for a substantial part of the compensation.

The objectives for variable pay are revised annually.

Long-term incentive programmes
Long-term incentive programmes such as options plans, equity savings plans with share matching or similar constructions may form part of the remuneration of senior executives at Cybercom from time to time as decided by the AGM. 

Pensions
Pension provision should be at market terms and using defined contributions. The company aims to offer competitive and market-adjusted overall remuneration to senior executives, of which the pension forms a part and where the balance between pension and basic salary is agreed upon in each individual case.

Other benefits 
Other benefits should be on market terms and facilitate the senior executive’s ability to complete his or her duties. Examples of such benefits are medical insurance and company cars. The total value of these benefits must be limited proportionate to the total compensation and correspond to normal market practice.

Termination
The period of notice for senior executives shall be a mutual period of 6 months. Severance pay shall be applied with restraint, and not be paid as a lump sum but over a predetermined period, and be subject to a non-competition agreement. In addition there shall be deductions for any compensation from other employment and/or assignments. Severance pay shall not exceed the basic salary for 12 months.

Other 
Some deviations from these guidelines arise in existing contracts. These will not be adjusted.

The above guidelines may be waived by the board in individual cases where there are special circumstances.

Number of shares and votes in the company
The total number of shares and votes in the company on the date this notification was issued is 
180,439,495.

Shareholders’ right to request information
In accordance with Chapter 7, Section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act, shareholders are entitled to ask questions of the company at the AGM regarding matters to be raised at the AGM and regarding the company’s and group’s financial situation.
