Item 8 - Resolution on adoption of revised instruction for the nomination committee
The nomination committee proposes that the following principles shall apply to the convening and appointment of the members of the nomination committee:

The general meeting assigns the chairman of the board of directors to contact the four largest shareholders or groups of shareholders in terms of votes (hereby refers to both directly-registered shareholders and nominee-registered shareholders) in Bambuser, according to a transcript of the register of shareholders maintained by Euroclear as per the last trading day in August, each appointing a representative to constitute the nomination committee for the period until a new nomination committee is appointed by mandate from the next annual general meeting. If any of the four largest shareholders or group of shareholders waive their right to appoint a representative, the fifth largest shareholder or group of shareholders shall be asked, and so on until a maximum of the eight largest shareholders have been contacted, until the nomination committee consists of four members (or actual number in case the maximum number of shareholders have been contacted).

The majority of the members of the nomination committee are to be independent of the Company and its executive management. At least one member of the nomination committee is to be independent of the Company's largest shareholders in terms of votes, or any group of shareholders that act in concert in governance of the Company. Neither the chief executive officer nor any other members of the executive management shall be members of the nomination committee. Board members may be members of the nomination committee but may not constitute a majority thereof. If more than one member of the board of directors is on the nomination committee, not more than one of these may be dependent of a major shareholder in the Company.

The chairman of the nomination committee shall, unless the members agree otherwise, be the member who represents the largest shareholder in terms of votes. Neither the chairman of the board of directors nor any other board member shall be the chairman of the nomination committee. The composition of the nomination committee shall be announced no later than six months prior to the annual general meeting. In the event one or more shareholders who appointed members of the nomination committee, earlier than three months prior to the Annual General Meeting, no longer are among the four largest shareholders in terms of voting rights, the members appointed by such shareholders shall resign and the shareholder or shareholders who has become one of the four largest shareholders in terms of voting rights shall be entitled to appoint their representatives. If there are only marginal changes in the number of votes held or if the change occurs later than three months prior to the Annual General Meeting, no changes shall be made in the composition of the nomination committee unless there are special circumstances. Should any member leave the nomination committee before its work has been completed, and if the nomination committee is of the opinion that there is a need to replace the member, the nomination committee shall appoint a new member in accordance with the principles mentioned above, but on the basis of a transcript of the register of shareholders maintained by Euroclear as soon as possible after the member left his or her position. Any changes in the nomination committee composition shall immediately be made public. No remuneration shall be paid to the members of the nomination committee.

The nomination committee shall submit proposals on the following issues for resolution:

  1. proposal for chairman of the general meeting,
  2. proposal for election of the board of directors,
  3. proposal for the chairman of the board of directors,
  4. proposal for election of auditors,
  5. proposal for remuneration to the board of directors, with division between the chairman and the other members of the board,
  6. proposal for remuneration to the Company's auditors, and
  7. proposal for principles for appointment of the nomination committee.

The principles for the appointment of the nomination committee and the nomination committee's assignment shall remain in effect until a general meeting resolves to amend it. It is the responsibility of the nomination committee to consider, prior to a general meeting, whether the nomination committee finds it necessary to propose amendments to the principles in question to the general meeting.
