The Danish Ministry of Justice/Civil Affairs Authority has approved the amendment of the Carlsberg Foundation’s charter, including section 14, article 1, which previously required the Carlsberg Foundation to hold at least 51% of the share capital of Carlsberg A/S. This article has now been amended so that in future the Carlsberg Foundation must hold at least 51% of the votes and more than 25% of the share capital.

Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement of 27 April 2007 presenting the application to amend the charter in greater detail.

The full text of the Carlsberg Foundation’s charter can be found at www.carlsbergfondet.dk.
