About NC Intressenter AB: At the 1997 Annual General Meeting, it was decided to establish an incentive program for present and future members of senior management in the Group. NC Intressenter AB was established for this purpose. The Tele2 shares that NC Intressenter acquired during the period 2000-2003 were previously ﬁnanced through bank loans. On December 31, 2004 loans and shares were replaced by swap agreements that entail unchanged ﬁnancial consequences for each shareholder remaining in NC Intressenter.
