It was decided at AB SKF's Annual General Meeting on April 18, 2002 to insert a share conversion clause in the Articles of Association with the following wording:
"Shares of Series A shall on request by their owners be converted to shares of Series B. A conversion request, which shall be done in writing and state the number of shares to be converted, shall be made to the company. The company shall without delay notify the conversion to the Patent- and Registration Office for registration. The conversion is executed when the registration has taken place."
A special form for the share conversion can be obtained from AB SKF, Group Legal, 415 50 Göteborg, Sweden tel. +46 (0)31 337 27 35, Julie A. Larsson
