Annual general meeting of shareholders

May 16 2002


Modern Times Group MTG AB, the international media group, today
announced that all resolutions proposed to its Annual General Meeting of
shareholders in Stockholm today were passed.

Carl Lindgren was elected as auditor and Björn Flink was elected as
deputy auditor. In accordance with the share option scheme that was
approved at the Extraordinary General Meeting of shareholders on 16
February 2001, the meeting voted to authorize the Board of Directors to
issue debentures with not more than 127,476 detachable warrants, on one
or more occasions at any time before the next Annual General Meeting of
shareholders, entitling the holders to subscribe for new shares in the
Group. The right to subscribe for debentures shall, disregarding the
shareholders’ preferential rights, be given to wholly owned subsidiaries
in the group. The reason for this decision is to secure the option
undertakings under the above-mentioned incentive programme and to cover
administrative costs and social fees or similar taxes arising under the
incentive programme.
