The Chairman informed of the ongoing listing process and of the background for the capital increase being planned in said connection.
 
It was explained that the capital increase will be conducted as a public offering on the basis of a Subscription Agreement with the managers ABG Sundal Collier and UBS ("Public Offering"). The capital increase will consist of several tranches in Norway and internationally
 
In total, up to 73,000,000 shares will be issued. The subscription price will be established through a "book building" process, simultaneous with which the Company will enter into a Subscription Agreement with UBS and ABG Sundal Collier. The subscription price will ultimately be determined by the Board after advice from UBS and ABG Sundal Collier, and will be reduced in certain tranches in relation to other tranches. Among the factors to be considered in determining the subscription price, as described in the draft prospectus, will be the prevailing market and economic conditions, market valuations of other companies engaged in similar activities to the Company, and other relevant factors.
 
As the subscription price and the number of shares that can be sold in the Public Offering is not known at this time, the Board must be given the authority to fix the number of shares to be issued as well as, and after advice from UBS and ABG Sundal Collier, the subscription price within the ranges specified below, and to, after advice from UBS and ABG Sundal Collier, determine the size of each tranche in the Offering and the subscription price in each tranche of the offering, allocation in each market and the allocation of shares among the subscribers in each tranche of the Public Offering. Before the beginning of the subscription period, An initial price range may be fixed prior to the commencement of the offer period, subject to change during the offer period within the intervals of the Resolution below.
 
The General Meeting unanimously passed the following resolution:
 
The Company's share capital is increased by up to NOK 73,000,000 by the issuance of up to 73,000,000 shares, each with a par value of NOK 1. The subscription price for each share shall be from NOK 25 to NOK 150.
 
Within the intervals above, the Board is authorized to fix the number of shares to be issued and the subscription price. The Board may also decide to divide the total number of shares in separate tranches with different subscription prices so that a specific number of shares may be subscribed for at lower prices than other shares. This because such shares shall immediately be sold  to non-institutional buyers and employees of the Company after subscription at a slightly lower price. The shares will be subscribed for by ABG Sundal Collier Norge AS and UBS Limited who will conduct a resale of the shares to such shareholders as the Company after advice from the Managers will determine.
 
The Public Offering, including the Board's resolution and subscription from the managers, shall take place between May 1, 2006 and July 1, 2006. Payment for subscribed shares shall take place at the latest 10 days after the date of subscription and through payment to a bank account established for such purpose according to the Board's detailed decision.
