A new issue should be able to be made with or without provisions regarding contribution in kind, set-off or other conditions. The total number of shares issuable pursuant to the authorization shall not exceed 10 per cent of the total number of existing shares in the company at the time of the annual general meeting. In case the authorization is used for a new issue with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, the subscription price shall be on market terms (subject to customary new issue discount, as applicable). The purpose of the authorization is to be able to execute and finance acquisitions of companies and assets.
Resolution on implementation of long term incentive program by way of (A) directed issue of warrants; and (B) approval of transfer of warrants
The annual general meeting resolved, in accordance with the proposal from the board of directors, to implement a long-term incentive program for the company’s CEO, Group Management and key employees based on issue and transfer of warrants.
The incentive program means that a maximum of 1,148,980 warrants shall be offered to the company’s CEO, Group Management and key employees. Issue shall, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, be made to a wholly owned subsidiary of the company, free of charge, and the warrants shall then be transferred to the company’s CEO, Group Management and key employees at a price which corresponds to the fair market value at the time of the transfer. The board of directors of the company shall resolve on allotment to the participants in the incentive program. Subscription of shares by virtue of the warrants may be affected as from 1 June 2021 up to and including 14 June 2021. Each warrant shall entitle to subscription of one share in the company. The subscription price per share shall correspond to 126 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq Stockholm’s official price list for shares in the company during the period as from 18 May 2018 to and including 24 May 2018.
The reasons for the implementation of the incentive program and the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights are to be able to create possibilities for the company to retain senior executives and key employees through the offering of a long-term ownership engagement. Such ownership engagement is expected to contribute to increased alignment of interests between the participating employees and the shareholders, and also promote a long-term commitment to the development of the company. In case all warrants issued within the incentive program are utilized for subscription of new shares, a total of 1,148,980 new shares will be issued, which corresponds to a dilution of approximately 2.0 percent of the company’s share capital and votes after full dilution, calculated on the number of shares that will be added upon full utilization of the warrants issued within the incentive program.
