- Addition of paragraph 81 in § 6b of the Articles of Association with the following wording:
"81 . Paragraph 6 above shall not apply in the case of an issue of up to 400,000 shares within the Investment Target Capital in exercise of pre-emptive or Priority Rights (whether or not any share issued is taken up in exercise of pre-emptive or Priority Rights). Paragraph 6 shall apply to any subsequent issue within the Investment Target Capital after the limit on the number of shares set out in the preceding sentence has been exhausted."

In the event that the number of shares attributable to a given Eligible Person by virtue of the Pre-emptive Right is not a whole number, it will be rounded down to the nearest whole number."
