  11. Proposal to authorize the board to increase share capital

The board's recommendation to the general meeting is that no dividend should be disbursed for the accounting year 2010.


Because of the company's expressed intention of playing an active role in relation to further consolidation of the industry, the board has decided to propose to the general meeting to authorize the board to increase the company's share capital. The authorization is limited to a maximum of 10 % of the share capital (NOK 189 945 526) and will be for one year.


This authorization will give the company increased flexibility and a better position in relation to possible structural transactions, as well as a further strengthening of the position in relation to possible future capital needs. For the same reason and with the same time limit, the board proposes an authorization to issue convertible bonds, limited to a maximum of NOK 800 million and with a maximum increase of the share capital of 10 % in case of conversion.


The final summons for the annual general meeting will issued to the shareholders on 24 March 2011.
