Resolution in respect of appropriation of the Company’s profit or loss
The Board proposes that no dividend is declared for the financial year 2012.
Resolution in respect of guidelines for compensation of senior executives (item
It is the aim of Tethys Oil to recruit, motivate and retain executives capable
of achieving the objectives of the Group, and to encourage and appropriately
reward superior performance in a manner that enhances shareholder value.
Accordingly, the Group operates a Policy on Remuneration which ensures that
there is a clear link to business strategy and a close alignment with
shareholder interests, and aims to ensure that executives are rewarded fairly
for their contribution to the Group’s performance. The remuneration package of
the executives in the Group (which refers to the Managing Director and the
Chief Financial Officer) in the Group contains five components: 1) basic
salary; 2) pension arrangements; 3) yearly variable salary; 4) non-financial
benefits; and 5) severance payments. More details are to be found in the
Board’s full proposal.
Resolution in respect of a Nomination Committee and nomination procedure for
the Annual General Meeting 2014 (item 15)
The Nomination Committee proposes that an independent and non-executive member
of the Board invites four of the largest shareholders of the Company to form a
Nomination Committee. The members of the Nomination Committee shall be
announced adjacent to the Company’s interim report for the second quarter 2013.
If a member of the Committee resigns from the Nomination Committee before the
Annual General Meeting 2013, the remaining members shall invite a new member.
The Nomination Committee shall prepare the following proposals for resolution
to the Annual General Meeting 2014: (i) election of Chairman of the meeting,

of the Board of Directors, (iv) remuneration of the members of the Board of
Directors, distinguishing between the Chairman and other members and

If the shareholding in the Company is significantly changed before the
nomination Committee’s work is completed, a change in the composition of the
Nomination Committee may take place. The Nomination Committee shall remain in
office until a new Nomination Committee has been appointed.
Resolution in respect of an authorization for the Board to resolve new issue of
shares (item 16)
The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting authorizes the Board
of Directors to resolve, at one or more occasions until the next Annual General
Meeting, to issue new shares with consideration in cash and/or with
consideration in kind or by set-off and thereby be able to resolve to disapply
the shareholders pre-emption rights. The purpose with the authorization and the
reason for disapplying the shareholders’ pre-emption rights is to enable the
Company to make business acquisitions and to raise capital for the Company’s
business operations. The total number of shares that can be issued based on the
authorization may not exceed 10 per cent of the shares. In case it is resolved
to deviate from the shareholders pre-emption rights, the share issue shall be
made in accordance with market conditions.
