At yesterday’s Extraordinary General Meeting in AB Novestra, the Board of Directors’ resolution on September 3, 2003 to issue a maximum of 7 796 993 new shares with preferential rights for the company’s shareholders was approved. The decision was unanimous and Sveriges Aktiesparares Riksförbund (the Swedish Shareholders’ Association) was represented at the meeting by Gunnar Ek.

In substance, the issue entitles the shareholders, for each three shares held on the record date, to subscribe for one new share in the company at a subscription price of SEK seven per share. The record date for receipt of subscription rights is September 26, 2003. The last day for trading in the Novestra share, including subscription rights, is September 23, 2003.

The subscription of shares can also be made with a so called “subsidiary right” whereby all shareholders shall have the possibility to subscribe for more shares than their preferential rights entitle them to and whereby the allotment of such subscribed shares will be made in relation to the respective shareholding on the record date of the issue, however as a minimum by
1 000 shares.

For further information regarding the rights issue reference is made to the press release dated September 4, 2003.
