Change of Guard at Elekta IR in North America

Stockholm, Sweden, April 27, 2006

Dear friends of Elekta,

This short note is to inform you that Lars Jonsteg, Elekta's VP Investor Relations North America, has decided to retire on April 30, this year.

Lars joined Elekta in 1997 as Group Vice President Corporate Communications, after working 7 years for Ericsson Investor Relations in New York. As Elekta’s Investor Relations Officer and corporate spokesperson to the financial markets, Lars built up a strong IR function and laid the foundation for the credibility Elekta today possesses among investors and financial analysts.

In 2003 he decided to step down, relocate to the US and assume a new role in which he successfully has retained Elekta's good relations with North American investors.

Please join me in wishing Lars all the best for the future.

From May 1, the Elekta Corporate Communications team in Stockholm will handle all investor contacts, also from North America.

Kind regards,

Peter Ejemyr

Group Vice President Corporate Communications
