In addition to the authorisations presented above, the Board of Directors proposes that it be granted the following authorisations in order to execute the share-based incentive plan for the Oriola Group's executives and the share savings plan for the Oriola Group's key personnel:

(ii) Directed share issue

In deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive right, the Board of Directors is authorised to issue the Company's Class B shares in one or more issues.

Other terms and validity

The Board of Directors decides upon all other matters related to the share issues, the executives' incentive plan, and the key personnel's share savings plan.

Maximum number of shares repurchased

According to the authorisation, the Board of Directors is entitled to decide on the repurchase of no more than 18,000,000 of the Company's own Class B shares, which represent approximately 9.92 per cent of all shares in the Company. The authorisation may only be used in such a way that in total no more than one tenth (1/10) of all shares in the Company may at each time be in the possession of the Company and its subsidiaries.

Consideration to be paid for the shares and targeted acquisition

Shares may also be repurchased in accordance with the resolution of the Board of Directors in a proportion other than that in which the shares are owned by the shareholders, using funds belonging to the Company's unrestricted equity and at the price of the Class B shares quoted on the regulated market organised by Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. The Board of Directors decides how the shares will be repurchased. Among other means, derivatives may be used in the acquisition of the shares. The repurchase of the shares reduces the Company's distributable unrestricted equity.

The shares may be repurchased to develop the Company's capital structure, to execute corporate transactions or other business arrangements, to finance investments, to be used as a part of the Company's incentive schemes or to be otherwise relinquished, held by the Company, or cancelled.

Other terms and validity

The Board of Directors decides on all other matters related to the repurchase of Class B shares. The authorisation to repurchase the Company's own shares shall remain in force for a period of not more than eighteen (18) months from the resolution of the Annual General Meeting.

This authorisation revokes the authorisation granted to the Board of Directors by the Annual General Meeting on 17 March 2020 in respect of the repurchase of the Company's own Class B shares.
