Proxies without voting instructions may trigger disclosure requirements under Norwegian law.

If shares are held through a nominee, cf. the Norwegian Public Limited Liability Companies Act § 4-10, and the beneficial owner wishes to attend the general meeting, whether in person or by proxy, the beneficial owner must transfer the shares to a VPS account in the name of the beneficial owner prior to the date of the general meeting.
This information is subject to the disclosure requirements pursuant to section 5 -12 of the Norwegian Securities Trading Act.
