Voting by proxy

Stockholders who do not wish to attend the Annual General Meeting in person may
have their voting rights exercised by proxy, e.g. by a bank or stockholders'
association.

As before, we are again offering our Stockholders the opportunity to allow
Company-nominated proxies to represent them in the voting. These proxies must be
authorized and given instructions for exercising voting rights. Proxies are
obligated to vote as instructed; they cannot exercise the voting rights at their
own discretion.

Authorization and voting instructions can be issued to Company-nominated proxies
before the Annual General Meeting either via the internet or in writing.
Authorizations and instructions may also be issued or altered on the internet
during the Annual General Meeting until the voting commences. An admission
ticket for the Annual General Meeting is also necessary to authorize a
Company-nominated proxy.

More details on participating in the Annual General Meeting and authorizing and
instructing proxies will be sent to stockholders together with their admission
ticket. This information can also be viewed on the internet at
