Item 17 The Board of SAS AB proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorizes the Board to resolve on directed convertible bond issues

As previously communicated, the participation of the principal shareholders in the rights offering of ordinary shares, subject to the approval of the general meeting, is conditional upon, among other things, the refinancing of the outstanding bonds maturing in 2010, totaling approximately SEK 2 billion. The process of securing this refinancing is ongoing, and to maximize the ability to proceed while current market conditions on the international convertibles market are favorable, the Company would regard the possibility to issue convertible bonds under the ongoing refinancing process as advantageous.

Consequently, the Board has today resolved to propose to the Annual General Meeting an authorization for the Board to resolve, on one or several occasions and until the next Annual General Meeting – with derogation from shareholders’ preferential rights – on an issue of convertible bonds with right of conversion into new ordinary shares in the Company. Furthermore, the Board proposes that the credit amount must not exceed SEK 2,000,000,000 and that the total number of ordinary must not exceed 20,000,000,000 ordinary shares after the completion of the ordinary rights issue, but prior to the completion of the Board’s proposed reverse split. Subscription of the convertible bonds will be possible by either cash payment or by set-off.

The convertible bonds issues under the authorization will be on market terms and conditions and registration of issued convertible bonds with the Swedish Companies Registration Office shall be made after the registration of the rights issue of new ordinary shares resolved upon by the Board on 8 February 2010, subject to the approval of the General Meeting.

Item 11 Changes to the composition of the Board

Current Board members Anitra Steen and Berit Kjøll have communicated to the Nomination Committee that they are not available for re-election.

“I would like to thank Anitra Steen and Berit Kjøll for their efforts and commitment in the Board’s work since 2001, which has been challenging times for SAS and consequently the Board”, says Chairman of the Board, Fritz H. Schur.

The Nomination Committee proposes as new members of the Board, Monica Caneman and Gry Mølleskog. A brief presentation of their respective background, experience,current positions and directorships is set out in the attached notice.

“The Nomination Committee has, after considerable effort found two very qualified persons which, according to the Nomination Committee, have the right background, experience and competencies, and therefore have good prospects to undertake the demanding engagement of a directorship of SAS”, says Björn Mikkelsen, the Swedish Ministry of Industry, Employment and Communication and Chairman of the Nomination Committee of SAS.

The Board’s proposal for resolutions in accordance with item 15 on the agenda
The Company has, through a press release dated 9 February 2010, announced that the Board has resolved on a new ordinary share issue with preferential right for the Company’s shareholders, through which the Company intends to raise a total subscription amount of approximately SEK 5 billion. In order to create flexibility pertaining to the final determination of certain terms of the new ordinary share issue and the amount by which the share capital shall be reduced in order to obtain a quota value that is close to the subscription price for the shares issued in the new ordinary share issue, and thereby reduce the risk that the new ordinary share issue cannot be carried out as planned, the Board will determine the final terms of the ordinary share issue, and some other terms set out below at a point in time being close to the General Meeting. In order to restore the Company’s share capital following the proposed share capital reduction, the Board proposes that the General Meeting, if necessary, also resolves on a bonus issue. The Board will around 6 April 2010, publicly announce the amount by which the share capital shall be reduced, the proposed final wording for the required amendments to the Articles of Association, the final terms for the new ordinary share issue and whether the Board has decided to withdraw its proposal for a bonus issue, since the bonus issue no longer being required for the completion of the new ordinary share issue.

15 a Amendment of the Articles of Association
In order to enable the proposed reduction of the Company’s share capital set out below, the Board proposes that the General Meeting resolves to make an appropriate amendment to the limitations with respect to the share capital in Article 5, first paragraph, of the Company’s Articles of Association. The Board’s proposal for an amendment of the Articles of Association shall be within the following limits: the lower limit shall not be less than SEK 200,000,000 and the higher limit shall not exceed SEK 6,580,000,000. The complete proposal for a resolution on an amendment of the Articles of Association, will be announced together with the final terms for the new ordinary share issue as soon as these are determined by the Board.

15 b Reduction of the share capital
The Company’s share capital, currently amounting to SEK 6,168,750,000, shall be reduced by, at the most, SEK 5,922,000,000, without redemption of any shares, to be transferred to a fund to be used pursuant to a resolution adopted by the General Meeting (i.e. non-restricted equity). Following the reduction of the share capital, the Company’s share capital will amount to, at least, SEK 246,750,000, divided into a total of 2,467,500,000 shares, each share with a quota value of at least SEK 0.10 per share. The finally determined amount by which the share capital shall be reduced, will be announced together with the final terms for the new ordinary share issue as soon as these are determined by the Board.

15 c Additional amendments of the Articles of Association
In order to enable the resolution on the new ordinary share issue set out below, the Board proposes that the General Meeting resolves to make appropriate amendments to the limitations with respect to the share capital and number of shares in Article 5, first paragraph, of the Company’s Articles of Association. The Board’s proposal for amendments of the Articles of Association shall be within the following limits: (i) as to the limitations with respect to the share capital, the lower limit shall not be less than SEK 3,000,000,000 and the higher limit shall not exceed SEK 30,000,000,000 and (ii) as to the limitations with regard to the number of shares, the lower limit shall not be less than 3,000,000,000 shares and the higher limit shall not exceed 600,000,000,000 shares. The complete proposal for a resolution on amendments of the Articles of Association will be announced together with the final terms for the new ordinary share issue as soon as these are determined by the Board.
15 d Approval of the Board’s resolution on a new ordinary share issue, and, if applicable, a transfer of funds from available non-restricted equity to the share capital

The Board proposes that the General Meeting approves the Board’s resolutions of 8 and 26 February 2010 to increase the Company’s share capital by a new ordinary share issue with an amount to be determined by the Board (or a person appointed by the Board amongst its members), and on the following principal conditions. The Company’s shareholders shall have preferential rights to subscribe for the new ordinary shares. The record date for determining which shareholders shall be entitled to subscribe for new ordinary shares with preferential rights, shall be 12 April 2010. The Board (or a person appointed by the Board amongst its members) shall be authorized to determine, no later than on the fifth weekday prior to the record date, the amount by which the Company’s share capital is to be increased, the number of shares which are to be issued (including the number of subscription rights) and the subscription price per share. In the event that the subscription price to be paid for each ordinary share is less than the quota value of the share, an amount corresponding to the difference between the subscription price and the quota value of the share, multiplied with the number of issued shares, shall be contributed to the share capital through a transfer from the Company’s available non-restricted equity. Subscription for the new ordinary shares shall take place during the period as from and including 15 April 2010 up to and including 29 April 2010, or such later date as the Board may decide. The banks and other financial institutions that may underwrite the new ordinary share issue shall, if applicable, within four (4) business days from the last day of the subscription period, on a separate subscription list, subscribe for ordinary shares not subscribed for by anyone else.

15 e Potential resolution on a bonus issue
In order to ascertain that the Company’s share capital, all in all, does not amount to a lower amount that it had immediately prior to the General Meeting’s resolution on a reduction of the share capital in accordance with item 15 b, the Board proposes, in addition to the new ordinary share issue resolved upon by the Board as set out in item 15 d, that the General Meeting resolves on a bonus issue on the following principal conditions. The Company’s share capital shall be increased by SEK 922,000,000, without the issuance of any new shares. The increase of the share capital shall be carried out through a transfer of funds to the share capital from the Company’s available non-restricted equity pursuant to the adopted balance sheet for the financial year 2008. The Board’s proposal for a resolution on a bonus issue, being conditional upon that the proposed bonus issue is necessary in order to restore the previously reduced share capital.

Reverse split and a corresponding amendment of the Articles of Association (Item 16)
As a result of the new ordinary share issue which is subject to the approval by the General Meetings in accordance with item 15 d, the number of shares in the Company may increase significantly why the Board proposes a reverse split in order to obtain a more appropriate number of shares in the company following the new ordinary share issue. For those shareholders who on the record date do not hold a number of shares corresponding to a whole number of new ordinary shares (after completion of the reverse split), title to the excess shares shall pass from such shareholder to the company on the record date for the reverse split. The excess shares will thereafter be sold by a securities institution designated by the company, and the proceeds of the sale will be distributed among those shareholders being entitled thereto. The number of ordinary shares that will be consolidated into one share and the corresponding amendment of Article 5, first paragraph, of the Company’s Articles of Association (i.e. regarding the limits of number of shares that may be issued), shall be determined in connection with the resolution on the final terms of the new ordinary share issue, i.e. 6 April 2010. The resolution for the reversed split shall be registered by the Swedish Companies Registration Office and it is proposed that the Board being authorized to determine the record date for the reverse split, which may not take place before the resolution on the reverse split being registered, and not later than 30 June 2010. More information about the procedures for the reverse split will be announced when the record date has been determined by the Board.

Proposal to resolution on the authorization of the Board to resolve on directed convertible bond issues (Item 17)
The Board proposes that the General Meeting authorizes the Board to resolve, on one or several occasions and until the next Annual General Meeting – with derogation from shareholders’ preferential rights – on an issue of convertible bonds with right of conversion into ordinary shares in the company, whereby the amount must not exceed SEK 2,000,000,000 and the number of ordinary shares that may be issued as a result of the conversion must not exceed 20,000,000,000 ordinary shares after the completion of the ordinary share issue set out in item 15 d, but prior to the completion of the reverse split set out in item 16. Payment for subscribed convertible bonds shall be made by either cash payment or by set-off.
