7. Authorisation for the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of class B shares without payment to the Company and on a directed share issue of class B shares in order to execute the share-based incentive plan for Oriola Group's executives and the share savings plan for Oriola Group's key personnel

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

(i) The Board of Directors was authorised to decide on a share issue without payment to the Company in one or more instalments. The maximum number of new class B shares to be issued under this authorisation is 250,000, which represents of 0.14 per cent of all shares in the Company.

The Board of Directors decides upon all other matters related to the issuing of class B shares.

The purpose of the authorisation is to enable the creation of own shares to be used in the new share-based incentive plan for Oriola Group's executives and the share savings plan for Oriola Group's key personnel, as follows.

(ii) In deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive right, the Board of Directors was authorised to issue the Company's class B shares in one or more instalments. The class B shares to be issued can be either new shares or own class B treasury shares. The total amount of the authorisation is 250,000 class B shares. The share issue may be without payment. The shares concerned represent approximately 0.14 per cent of all shares in the Company.

The Board of Directors decides upon all other matters related to share issues and incentive plan for the key personnel.

Deciding upon a directed share issue without payment requires that there is a particularly weighty financial reason for the deviation in respect of the Company and taking into account the interest of all of its shareholders.

The authorisation revokes all other share issue authorisations granted to the Board of Directors with the exception of those decided earlier during this Annual General Meeting.

The authorisations in accordance with this section shall be valid eighteen (18) months from the decision of the AGM.

8. Authorisation for the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of the company's own class B shares

In accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors, the AGM authorised the Board of Directors to decide on repurchasing of the company's own class B shares. The authorisation entitles the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of no more than 18,000,000 representing 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 from time to time be in the possession of the company and its subsidiaries.

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

According to the authorisation, the Board of Directors decides on all other matters related to the repurchase of class B shares. The authorisation to repurchase own shares is in force for a period of not more than eighteen (18) months from the decision of the AGM. This authorisation revokes the authorisation given to the Board of Directors by the AGM on 17 March 2020 in respect of repurchase of the company's own class B shares.
