The 2018 Programme comprises not more than 32 participants and not more than in aggregate 800,000 share options and warrants which may entitle to the same number of new shares, corresponding to not more than approximately 1.5 per cent of the share capital and votes of the company. The subscription price for the shares shall be equal to 130 per cent of the volume-weighted average price of the company’s share on Nasdaq Stockholm during a period of ten (10) trading days prior to the respective allocation dates of the share options or the warrants. The final number of share options or warrants each participant shall be entitled to exercise shall also be dependent on the degree of fulfillment of certain performance targets.
The meeting resolved, in accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors, on amendments to the Company’s Memorandum and Articles of Association mainly in respect of the maximum number of members of the Board of Directors (an increase from not more than six to not more than seven directors).
