Item 13 a) Implementation of the Long Term Incentive Plan 2005 and b) Transfer of Repurchased own Shares


Background
As the employee saving and investment period for the ongoing incentive plan, Stock Purchase Plan 2003 (supplemented with the Long Term Incentive Plan 2004), expires in 2005, the Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting of Shareholders resolves on a new program, the Long Term Incentive Plan 2005.


In order to implement the Long Term Incentive Plan 2005, the Board of Directors proposes that no more than 39,300,000 shares of series B may be transferred to employees in the Ericsson Group and, moreover, that a portion of the shares also may be transferred at Stockholmsbörsen (the Stockholm Stock Exchange) in order to cover inter alia social security payments. Ericsson's current holding of own shares is estimated to cover the requirement of shares to the Long Term Incentive Plan 2005.


Proposal
Item 13 a)  The Long Term Incentive Plan 2005
The Board proposes that the General Meeting of Shareholders resolves on a Long Term Incentive Plan 2005 (the "LTI 2005"), including 39,300,000 shares of series B, and comprising three parts (i) the Stock Purchase Plan, (ii) the Key Contributor Program and (iii) the Performance Matching Program, according to the principle guidelines below.


Stock Purchase Plan
a) Employees who participate in the Stock Purchase Plan shall, during a 12 months period from the implementation of the plan, be able to save up to 7.5 percent of gross salary for the purchase of shares of series B at Stockholmsbörsen (the Stockholm Stock Exchange) or ADRs at Nasdaq. If the purchased shares are retained by the employee for three years from the investment date and the employment with the Ericsson Group continues during that time, the employee will be given a corresponding number of shares of series B or ADRs free of consideration.


b) All employees within the Ericsson Group, except for what is mentioned in item c) below, will be offered to participate in the Stock Purchase Plan.


c) Participation in the LTI 2005, regardless of whether only the Stock Purchase Plan, or also the Key Contributor Program or the Performance Matching Program, presupposes that such participation is legally possible as well as possible with reasonable administrative costs and financial efforts according to the assessment of Ericsson. The Board shall however be entitled, but not obligated, to arrange for a cash alternative for key contributors in specific jurisdictions, should any of the aforementioned presuppositions prove not to be at hand. Such cash alternative shall, as far as practicably possible, correspond to the terms for the LTI 2005 involving key contributors.


Key Contributor Program and Performance Matching Program
d) Three categories of employees (key contributors, senior managers and top senior managers) will, in addition to the regular matching of one share pursuant to the Stock Purchase Plan described above, be entitled to additional matching of shares free of consideration within either the Key Contributor Program, covering up to 5,000 key contributors, or the Performance Matching Program, covering up to 170 senior managers and up to 50 top senior managers.


e) If the shares purchased in accordance with the Stock Purchase Plan are retained by an employee within the categories mentioned in d) above for three years from the investment date and the employment with the Ericsson Group continues during that time, the employee will be entitled to the following matching of shares, free of consideration, in addition to the regular matching of one share:


(i) Up to 5,000 key contributors are entitled to an additional match of one share for each one purchased.


(ii) Up to 170 senior managers may be entitled to an additional performance match of up to four shares for each one purchased.


(iii) Up to 50 top senior managers may be entitled to an additional performance match of up to six shares for each one purchased.


f) The terms of the additional performance match for senior managers and top senior managers are based on average annual percentage growth rate in earnings per share(*) ("EPS") between 1 July 2005 and 30 June 2008, with reported EPS for quarter 3 and quarter 4 2004 plus quarter 1 and quarter 2 2005 as the starting point. Maximum matching shares (i.e. four shares and six shares, respectively) will be allocated if the average annual EPS growth is at or above 15 percent. No allocation of matching shares will occur if the average annual EPS growth is at or below 3 percent. Matching of shares between average annual EPS growth 3 and 15 percent is linear.


g) Before the number of performance shares to be matched pursuant to e) above are finally determined, the Board shall examine whether the performance matching is reasonable considering the company's financial results and position, conditions on the stock market and other circumstances, and if not, as determined by the Board, reduce the number of performance shares to be matched to the lower number of shares deemed appropriate by the Board.


(*) Earnings Per Share is calculated by dividing the reported net income for the Ericsson Group by the average number of shares outstanding during the period.
__________


In order to implement the LTI 2005 according to the above, the Board proposes that the General Meeting of Shareholders resolves on transfer of own shares as set out below.


Item 13 b)  Transfer of own shares
a) No more than 39,300,000 shares of series B can be transferred.


b) Right to acquire shares shall be granted to such persons within the Ericsson Group covered by the terms and conditions for the LTI 2005. Further, subsidiaries within the Ericsson Group shall have the right to acquire shares free of consideration and such subsidiaries shall be obligated to immediately transfer free of consideration shares to its employees covered by the terms of the LTI 2005.


c) The employee shall have the right to receive shares during the period when the employee is entitled to receive shares in accordance with the terms of the LTI 2005, i.e. during the period from November 2005 up to and including November 2008.


d) Employees covered by the terms of the LTI 2005 shall, subject to certain conditions, receive shares free of consideration.


e) Further, Ericsson shall have the right to, prior to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders 2006, transfer no more than 7,800,000 shares of series B, out of the holding of 39,300,000 shares of series B, in order to cover certain payments, mainly social security payments. Transfer of the shares shall be effected at Stockholmsbörsen at a price within the, at each time, registered price interval for the share.
________________


The reasons for deviation from shareholders preferential rights and the base for determination of the transfer prices are as follows.


The transfer of own shares forms a part of the implementation of the LTI 2005. The Board considers it to be to an advantage for Ericsson and its shareholders that the employees are shareholders in Ericsson.


The base for determination of the transfer prices is seen from the Board's proposal under relevant headings above.


Supermajority
The resolutions on implementation of the LTI 2005 according to item 13 a) above and the transfer of repurchased own shares according to item 13 b) above shall be made as one "package". Accordingly, the supermajority rules in the Leo Act shall apply, meaning that 90 per cent of the shares and votes represented at the General Meeting of Shareholders must vote to approve of the "package".


Item 14  Transfer of own Stock in relation to the Resolution on the Global Stock Incentive Program 2001, the Stock Purchase Plan 2003 and the Long Term Incentive Plan 2004


Background
The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders 2001 resolved to approve transfer of own shares in relation to the introduction of a Global Stock Incentive Program. The resolution comprised, inter alia, a right for the company to transfer a maximum of 31,000,000 shares of series B to cover certain payments, mainly for social security charges that may occur in relation to the program.


The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders 2003 resolved to approve transfer of own shares in relation to the Stock Purchase Plan 2003. The resolution comprised, inter alia, a right for the company to transfer a maximum of 26,000,000 shares of series B to cover certain payments, mainly for social security charges that may occur in relation to the plan.


The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders 2004 resolved to approve transfer of own shares in relation to the Long Term Incentive Plan 2004. The resolution comprised, inter alia, a right for the company to transfer a maximum of 4,900,000 shares of series B to cover certain payments, mainly for social security charges that may occur in relation to the plan.


Resolutions to approve transfer of own shares have thereafter been made for the purpose of the Global Stock Incentive Program at the Annual General Meetings of Shareholders 2002, 2003 and 2004 and for the purpose of the Stock Purchase Plan 2003 at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders 2004.


In accordance with the resolutions, 1,854,335 shares have been transferred up to 9 February 2005.


Proposal
Therefore, the Board of Directors proposes the General Meeting of Shareholders to resolve that Ericsson shall have the right to transfer, prior to the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders 2006, a maximum of 60,045,665 shares of series B, or the lower number of shares of series B, which as per 6 April 2005, remains of the original 61,900,000 for the purpose of covering certain payments, primarily social security charges that may occur in relation to the company's Global Stock Incentive Program 2001, the Stock Purchase Plan 2003 and the Long Term Incentive Plan 2004. Transfer of shares shall be effected at Stockholmsbörsen at a price within the, at each time, registered price interval for the share.


Supermajority
The resolution of the Annual General Meeting on transfer of own shares requires, according to the Swedish Company Act, that shareholders with minimum two thirds of the shares and votes represented at the General Meeting of Shareholders must vote in favor of the proposal.
____________


A group of owners of shares of series A and B who jointly represent more than 35 percent of the total number of votes of the Company has reported that it intends to vote in favor of the proposals in the agenda items 7 c) 14.
__________


The Board of Directors' complete proposals for resolutions in items 13 a)-b) and 14 will be available from March 23, 2005. The proposals will be sent to shareholders free of charge upon request. The proposals will also be available at the Company's home page www.ericsson.com/investors as from the same date.
