Resolution regarding principles for remuneration and other terms of employment for Senior management (item 14)
The Board of Directors proposes, after preparation by the Remuneration Committee, following guidelines for remuneration of Senior management. Senior management includes the CEO and other members of Executive management. Remuneration and benefits to the CEO are decided by the company's Board of Directors. Remuneration to other senior executives is decided by the CEO in consultation with the company's Board of Directors.
To successfully implement its business strategy and safeguard its long-term interests, the company needs to be able to recruit and retain qualified employees. The remuneration offered to employees must be competitive and in line with market levels and reflect the employee's responsibilities and authority. Variable cash remuneration covered by these guidelines shall aim to promote the company's business strategy and long-term interests.
In addition to a fixed cash salary, incentive schemes offering the possibility of variable cash compensation may be offered to the company's senior executives. The performance period for the criteria for the payment of variable cash remuneration shall be measurable over a period of one or more years.
The outcome of the incentive scheme must depend on the extent to which predefined goals have been achieved in the course of the company's operations, as well as goals tied to the share's development and sustainability objectives. The predefined goals must have a clear connection to the business strategy and Diös' long-term value-creating process, including its sustainability management activities. The short-term and long-term variable remuneration for a senior executive can amount to a maximum of four monthly salaries per year. For a share of the net outcome of variable cash remuneration, senior executives are encouraged to invest in Diös shares. Share-based payments are not permitted.
The CEO is entitled to a company car, apartment and insurance and retirement benefits in accordance with the ITP scheme applicable during the period of employment. Individual investment options are available. Insurance and pension premiums are based on cash salary only. The retirement age for the CEO is 65 years. The period of notice given by the company to the CEO is 12 months. The period of notice given by the CEO to the company is 4 months. Remuneration during a period of notice is deducted from income from another employer. Other senior executives are entitled to a company car. During the period of employment with the company, other executives are entitled to insurance and pension benefits in accordance with the ITP scheme applicable at the time. Individual investment options are available. Insurance and pension premiums are based on cash salary only. The retirement age for other senior executives is 65 years.

Payment for transferred shares may take the form of in cash, in kind or by offset of a claim on the company or in another manner subject to terms and conditions. The purpose of the authorisations described above is to ensure that the company is able to continually adapt its capital requirements and thereby increase shareholder value, and to ensure that the company is able to transfer shares as payment for or to fund any future property or corporate acquisitions.
Resolution to authorize the Board of Directors to resolve on new share issues (item 18)
The Board of Directors proposes that the AGM resolve to authorise the Board during the period up to the next AGM, to decide, on one or several occasions, to issue new shares with or without pre-emption rights for existing share-holders.

Payment for new shares may be made in the form of a cash or non-cash consideration or in lieu of debt. New shares may be subscribed for in disapplication of the pre-emption rights of existing shareholders. Existing shareholders' pre-emption rights may be disapplied for the purposes to enable property or corporate acquisitions in which payment is made in the form of shares of the company or, alternatively, to capitalise the company prior to such acquisitions. The issuance of shares under the authorisation must be made on market terms.
