Proposal for a resolution to approve a directed new share issue of 6.000.000 shares
On May 27, 2004, the Board of Directors of AB Novestra AB resolved, subject to the approval by the General Meeting, that the company’s share capital shall be increased by a maximum of SEK 6,000,000 through a directed issue of a maximum of 6,000,000 new shares. The right to subscribe for the shares is only directed towards a limited number of investors. The deviation from shareholders’ preferential rights is made for the purpose of immediately being able to take advantage of a number of attractive investment opportunities. The issue price is SEK 13.65 per share and has been based on the closing price of the Novestra share on May 26, 2004 with an estimated requisite discount for the implementation of the issue. The new shares were to be subscribed for by May 27, 2004 at the latest and shall be paid for on the first banking day following the General Meeting’s approval of the issue at the latest.

The Board of Directors’ complete proposal will be available from June 11, 2004 at the company’s office, Norrlandsgatan 16, 111 43 Stockholm, Sweden and will be sent to shareholders upon request who supply their postal address.

Stockholm, June 2004
