10. Authorisation to the board of directors to increase the share capital
The board of directors proposes that the general meeting grants the board of directors an authorization to increase the Company's share capital with an amount of up until NOK 2,989,956.00, which equals approximately 20% of the Company's share capital. The purpose of the authorisation is to provide the board of directors with flexibility to issue new shares as, e.g., consideration in acquisitions and other strategic transactions for the Company, as well as in strengthening the Company's share capital.

To ensure that the authorization can be used in accordance with its purpose, the board proposes that the authorization grants the board the right to deviate from existing shareholders' preferential rights.

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting makes the following resolution:

I. The board of directors is authorised pursuant to section 10-14 (1) of the Norwegian Private Limited Companies Act to increase the Company's share capital by up to NOK 2,989,956.00. Subject to said limitation on the aggregate amount, the authorisation may be used on one or more occasions.

II. The authorisation may be used to issue shares in connection with business acquisitions, strategic transactions for the Company and/or to strengthen the Company's share capital.

III. The authorisation is valid until the annual general meeting in 2024, on 30 June 2024 at the latest.

IV. The shareholders' preferential rights to new shares pursuant to section 10-4 of the Norwegian Private Limited Companies Act may be deviated cf. section 10-5 of the Norwegian Private Limited Companies Act.

V. The authorisation comprises share capital increases against contributions in cash and contributions other than in cash. The authorisation comprises the right to incur special obligations for the company cf. section 10-2 of the Norwegian Private Limited Companies Act, as well as decisions on merger pursuant to section 13-5 of the Norwegian Private Limited Companies Act.

VI. The authorisation is in addition to the board's existing authorisation to issue shares in connection with the Company's share option program resolved by the annual general meeting on 28 April 2022.

11. Authorisation to the board of directors to acquire own shares
The Company has an authorization to acquire own shares in the Company that expires on 8 June 2023. The authorisation equals approximately 10% of the Company's share capital at the time it was resolved.

An authorisation to acquire own shares provides the Company with flexibility to strategically use own shares in the Company and the shareholders' best interests. The authorisation may also be used to deliver shares upon exercise of options by board members or employees. It is therefore proposed that the general meeting approves a renewed authorisation to acquire own shares with a nominal value of up to NOK 1,494,978.00, equalling approximately 10% of the Company's existing share capital. 

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting makes the following resolution:

I. Pursuant to section 9-4 of the Norwegian Private Limited Liability Companies Act, the board of directors is authorised to ac-quire shares in the Company ("treasury shares") on behalf of the Company with a total nominal value of up to NOK 1,494,978.00.

II. In the acquisition of own shares, no consideration can be paid per share that is less than NOK 0.60 or above NOK 10.

III. Acquisition and sale of own shares may be done as the board of directors deems appropriate.

IV. The authorization is valid until the next annual general meeting of the Company, however no later than 30 June 2024.

V. This authorisation replaces the authorisation to acquire own shares resolved by the general meeting on 8 June 2021 (as registered with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises on 5 August 2021) from such time this authorisation is registered with the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprise.

12. Amendment of the Articles of Association
The board proposes that the Company's articles of association are amended so that the board may determine that documents to be considered at the general meeting are not sent physically to shareholders, e.g. the Company's annual report, as long as they are made available at the Company's websites. A shareholder may still demand to receive physical copies of such documents. The proposed provision does not apply to the actual notice for the general meeting.

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting makes the following resolution:
The following text shall be included in the Company's articles of association by including a new provision (§ 11):

§ 11
When documents that relates to matters to be considered at the general meeting is made available for the shareholders at the company's websites, the board may determine that the documents shall not be distributed to shareholders. This also applies to documents that by law shall be included in or attached to the notice for the general meeting. A shareholder may still demand that the company sends such documents. The company may not require any compensation for sending documents to shareholders.

Oslo, 28. April 2023

Per Matsson
Chairperson of the board of directors
