Item 5: Proposal to instruct the board to consider other alternative structures to finance the cash settlement in the SalmoNor transaction, and to instruct the board not to carry out the issue until SalMar’s bid for NTS has been completed or lapsed. The proposal was adopted.

Item 6: Instructions that the board of NRS Farming shall consist of the same shareholder-elected board members as the board of NRS in the period up to and including 15 December. As a result of the decision in case 3, the main shareholder, NTS, withdrew the proposal.
