Based on the subscriptions made pursuant to the loan shares the Company shall issue a maximum amount of 28,000,000 new Company shares.

If the Company during the loan period issues new shares in the share issue against the payment or issues new stock options or other special rights entitling to the shares referred to in Chapter 10 of the Finnish Companies Act so that the shareholders shall have the pre-emptive subscription right, the Promissory Note Holder shall have the same or equal right as a shareholder. Equality is reached by the mean resolved by the Board of Directors of the Company by giving to the Promissory Note Holder the same priority for the subscription of share and/or convertible bond and/or stock option, and/or the exchange ratio of the Convertible Bond will be adjusted and/or the Promissory Note Holder is given right to convert the Promissory Note to the shares during the other time period than referred to in Section II.2 or by combining manners of proceeding referred to above.

If the Company during the loan period issues new shares free of charge, the exchange ratio of the Convertible Bond shall be adjusted so that the percentual share of the shares to be converted by the Convertible Bond compared to all shares shall remain unaltered except for the part that the new number of shares to be converted by the Promissory Note would be a fraction.

If the Company during the loan period resolves to acquire or redeem its own shares or stock options or other special rights entitling to the shares pursuant to the Chapter 10 of the Finnish Companies Act through an offer directed to all shareholders or holders of the above mentioned rights, an equal offer shall be made to the holder of the Promissory Note. The redemption or acquisition of the shares and stock options or other special rights entitling to the shares referred to in Chapter 10 of the Finnish Companies Act shall thus be directed to the conversion rights of the Promissory Note pursuant to the resolution of the Board of Directors. Otherwise acquisition or redemption of own shares and stock options and other special rights entitling to the shares referred to under Chapter 10 of the Finnish Companies Act shall not require any actions from the Company with regard to the Promissory Note.

If the Company during the loan period distributes its funds in other means than what has been referred to in the previous section, the Promissory Note Holder shall not be entitled to participate in the distribution of the funds and the distribution of the funds shall not require any actions from the Company with regard to the Promissory Note.

If the Company is placed into liquidation during the loan period, the Convertible Bond shall fall due for payment at the moment when placing the liquidation has been entered into the Companies Register.

If the Company during the loan period resolves on the merger or division, the Promissory Note Holders shall be reserved a right, during the time period set by the Board of Directors of the Company prior to resolution on the merger or division, to convert the Promissory Note into shares. Alternatively the Promissory Note Holders shall be given the right to subscribe for the convertible bond issued by similar terms by the receiving company so that the subscription can be made on equal rights compared to the shares of the receiving company which have been issued to the shareholders pursuant to what has been resolved on the matter in the merger plan or division plan. After the above-mentioned time period reserved for the use of the conversion right or after the end of the subscription period of the new convertible bond, no conversion right shall exist anymore.

If a redemption right or redemption obligation of the minority shareholders referred to under Chapter 18 of the Finnish Companies Act arises, after Company has received notification on the origin of the redemption right or redemption obligation, the right to convert the Promissory Note into shares during the time period resolved by the Board of Directors shall without undue delay be reserved for the Promissory Note Holders. After the above-mentioned time period reserved for the use of the conversion right, no conversion right shall exist anymore.

Disputes arising out of this Convertible Bond shall be settled by arbitration consisting of one arbitrator in accordance with the Rules of the Arbitration Institute of the Finland Chamber of Commerce.
