The following persons serve on the nomination committee for the annual general meeting 2010; Per Lindberg, Sverre Bergland (DnB Nor), Robert Andersson (Infläktor), Lars-Åke Bokenberger (AMF) and Anders Lidbeck (chairman of the board in Enea AB).

The NC proposes that the board shall consist of five ordinary members elected by the general meeting without any deputy members and that one auditor is appointed.

The VC also proposes that SEK 170 000 shall be allocated amongst the board members due to contribution and activity in committee work, which is unchanged from the previous year. In addition hereto, SEK 500 000 is proposed as remuneration for extra ordinary efforts, not least for the chairman of the board who is estimated to spend considerable time in excess of the normal board work. The amount of time devoted to these extra ordinary efforts shall be accounted for and be deducted from this amount. The NC proposes that the auditor shall receive reasonable compensation as per invoice.

The NC proposes re-election of Åsa Landén Ericsson, Anders Skarin, Kjell Duveblad and Mats Lindoff as members of the board and Anders Lidbeck as chairman of the board.

The NC shall prepare and make propositions to the annual general meeting regarding chairman of the meeting, election of chairman and other members of the board of the Company, remuneration for the board divided between the chairman and the other members as well as the principles for remuneration, if any, for work in committees, election and compensation of auditors and deputy auditors (if any) and principles for appointment of a new nomination committee. The NC shall have the right to charge the Company with costs for e.g. recruitment consultants and other costs that may arise in order for the NC to conduct its assignment.

The board’s proposition on an authorization for the board to acquire and transfer its own shares (item 14)

The board proposes that the annual general meeting authorizes the board to acquire and transfer its own shares as follows. Acquisitions of shares may only be made on Nasdaq OMX Stockholm (the ”Marketplace”) or in accordance with an offer to all shareholders in the company. Acquisition may only be made of such amount of shares that the Company’s holding of treasury shares at each time does not supersede ten per cent of all shares in the Company. Transfer of shares may be made in other ways than on the Marketplace, including a right to deviate from the shareholders preferential rights and that payment may be made by other means than by cash. Maximum ten per cent of the total number of the shares in the Company may be transferred. The above authorization may be utilized on one or several occasions up until the annual general meeting 2012. Acquisitions of shares on the Marketplace may only be made at a price within the registered price interval at the Marketplace. Transfer of shares in connection with acquisitions of businesses may be made at a market price estimated by the board.

The purpose of the authorization above to acquire and transfer shares is to continuously be able to adjust the capital structure of Enea AB to the capital needs of Enea AB and to enable financing, in whole or in part, in connection with acquisitions of businesses.

Decisions following this item on the agenda require support of shareholders representing at least 2/3 of both cast votes as well as the shares represented at the meeting.

The board’s proposition on guidelines for remuneration to senior management (item 15)

Principles

Remuneration to the chairman of the board and other members of the board is paid in accordance with the resolution by the annual general meeting. Remuneration for the managing director may be decided by the chairman of the board and other board members following a proposition by the remuneration committee. Guidelines for remuneration to senior management are established by the annual general meeting. Market rate terms for salaries and other employment terms is applied to the group management. In addition to fixed yearly salaries, the group management will also receive variable salaries, which are limited and based on the earnings trend compared to fixed targets. Remuneration to certain senior managers within the Enea group of companies may also be paid by way of share related compensation.

Pension agreement

The managing director’s pension agreement states that the pension premium will amount to a fixed percentage of the fixed salary. Other senior managers in Sweden have pension agreements that fall within the ITP-plan with a stipulated retirement age of 65 and pension premiums related to the salary of the employee. Pension premiums will be paid regularly.

Severance pay

In case of dismissal of the managing director by the Company a notice period of six months applies and the same period in case the termination is made by the managing director. In addition, a further compensation corresponding to six months’ salary shall be paid if the Company terminates the employment. All severance payment and compensation for dismissal is to be reduced by any other income based on employment. For all other senior management a notice period of 3-12 months applies.

The terms and remunerations and other general compensation principles for senior management do not deviate for 2010 from the decisions by the annual general meeting 2010. The board reserves a right to deviate from the proposed general principles in specific cases.

The board’s proposition on authorization for the board to issue new shares for share or business acquisitions (item 16)

The board proposes that the annual general meeting authorizes the board for the time period until the annual general meeting 2012, at one or several occasions, to resolve on new share issues with deviation from the shareholders preferential rights and stipulating payment in kind or other conditions set out in chapter 13 section 5 first paragraph item 6 of the Swedish Companies Act and that the board may set the general terms in the decision. The issue price shall however be based on market practice and may at most equal ten per cent of the number of outstanding shares on the day of this notice.

The reason for the deviation from the preferential rights and the right to decide on payment in kind or other conditions stipulated in the Swedish Companies Act is to enable the Company to issue shares in order to acquire shares or businesses.

Decisions following this item on the agenda require support of shareholders representing at least 2/3 of both cast votes as well as the shares represented at the meeting.

The decision replaces the previous decision on authorization made by the annual general meeting 2010.

The consideration for each redemption share shall be SEK 5. Redemption of  own shares held by the Company will be without consideration.

The board also proposes that the board is authorized to decide on the record day for the share redemption.

III.         Decision to increase the share capital by way of a bonus issue

In order to achieve a timely and efficient redemption procedure without requiring the leave of the Swedish Companies Registration Office or the court, the board proposes that the annual general meeting decides to restore the share capital by an increase of the share capital with SEK 9,177,857 without issuing any new shares by transfer of the issue amount from the company’s reserve fund to the company’s share capital.

Record days etc.

The board proposes that the annual general meeting decides to authorize the board to fix the record day for the share split and redemption respectively and the term for trading of redemption shares. The record day for the share split is estimated to 18 April 2011 and the record day for the redemption is estimated to the 10 May 2011. The estimated term for trading is from 20 April 2011 up to and including 5 May 2011.
