Proposed appropriation of profits and signatures

The Board of Directors proposes that the profits available for allocation, comprising SEK 1,088,453,316, be appropriated as follows:

Dividend (SEK 549.0 per share)

197,640,630

Carried forward

890,812,686

Total

1,088,453,316

It is proposed that the dividend be disbursed on 26 April 2016.

The Board of Directors is of the opinion that the proposed dividend payment is justifiable with reference to the requirements laid down in chapt. 17:3, §§ 2 and 3 of the Swedish Companies Act, and with reference to the requirements that the nature of the operations, their scope and their inherent risks make of the shareholders’ equity in the company. The dividend payment is also deemed justifiable from the point of view of Systembolaget’s consolidation requirements, liquidity and position in general, and is compatible with the owner’s requirements and expectations.

The Board of Directors and the President hereby affirm that the annual accounts have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and that they provide a true and fair view of the company’s position and result. The undersigned also affirm that the accounts have been prepared on the basis of the IFRS international accounting standards referred to in the European Parliament and European Council ordinance (EC) no.1606/2002, dated 19 July 2002, and that they provide a true and fair view of the performance of the company operations, their position and their result, and that they describe significant risks and uncertainty factors faced by the company.
