Proposed resolutions

Point 7 - Repurchase of own preference shares through acquisition offering, directed new share issue of ordinary shares of Class A to preference shareholders and to holders of convertible instruments

Background

In view of the fact that ordinary shareholders of Eniro will be offered to acquire bonds within the framework of a new financing solution for the Company, the Board of Directors proposes that the General meeting resolves to renewed exchange offers to all remaining preference shareholders respectively holders of convertibles to exchange their instruments for ordinary shares of Class A and thus participate in the new financing solution by prioritizing acquisition of bonds from Beata Intressenter AB. The exchange offers will have the same exchange terms as those applicable for 2017 exchange offers. In view of the subsequent reverse share split of shares during the first half of 2018, the exchange ratio will be rounded up to the nearest full number of ordinary shares.

The Board of Directors’ proposal to resolution

The Board of Directors’ recommendations for decision under points a) – c) are conditional upon each other, and the general meeting’s resolutions in favor of points a) – c) shall be adopted as one decision. Resolutions in favor of points b) – c) may be registered together or separately in full or in part.

a)   Repurchase of own shares through acquisition offer

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to repurchase a maximum of 258,777 preference shares through an acquisition offer directed to all remaining preference shareholders on the following terms:

  1. All remaining preference shareholders are offered to sell all of their preference shares to the Company.
  2. The repurchase price is SEK 52.13 per preference share (repurchase amount).
  3. The repurchase is conditional upon that the preference shareholders, at the same time as the notification of sale of preference shares takes place, subscribes for ordinary shares of Class A in the Company to an amount corresponding to the repurchase amount for all preference shares that the notification refers to. The repurchase amount shall, in whole, be used for payment regarding the subscribed ordinary shares of Class A in the Company.
  4. The subscription period for the sale of shares commence from August 21, 2018, until August 29, 2018. The Board of Directors shall have the right to extend the time for the subscription period.
  5. Decision regarding repurchase shall be executed no later than October 31, 2018.

The repurchase is part of the Board of Director’s continued efforts to create an efficient capital structure.

On the day of the notice the Company’s treasury shares of ordinary shares of Class A amount to 17,034 and ordinary shares of Class B amount to 3, corresponding to approximately 0.03 percent of the total number of shares in the Company. The offer comprises all outstanding preference shares, in total 258,777, corresponding to 0.39 percent of the total number of shares in the Company. If the Company repurchases all preference shares, the total number of the Company´s treasury shares amounts to 0.42 percent.

b)  Directed new issue of Class A ordinary shares to preference shareholders

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to increase the Company’s share capital by a maximum of SEK 60,321,513.85 through the new issue of a maximum of 3,364,101 Class A ordinary shares. The following terms apply for the new issue:

  1. The new shares shall, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, be offered for subscription by preference shareholders in the Company that accepted the renewed exchange offer, including the sale of preference shares to the Company under the acquisition offer, each preference share entitling to subscribe for 13 new Class A ordinary shares. The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is that the Company is making a renewed offer to holders of preference shares and convertibles in the Company to exchange all remaining outstanding preference shares and convertibles for newly issued Class A ordinary shares (“the Exchange Offer”). The Board of Directors is of the opinion that it is in the Company’s interest that additional exchange of outstanding preference shares for newly issued Class A ordinary shares is made in accordance with the Exchange Offer. 
  2. Subscription for shares shall be made on a special subscription list during period August 21, 2018, through August 29, 2018.
  3. Oversubscription may not take place.
  4. The subscription price shall amount to SEK 4.01 per new Class A ordinary share. The subscription price has been set against the background of the volume-weighted average share price of ordinary shares of Class A during the period July 13 - 19, 2018.
  5. Allocations of ordinary shares of Class A shall correspond to the share subscriber’s repurchase amount in the Exchange Offer according to point a).
  6. Payment for newly issued Class A ordinary shares shall be made in cash at the same time as subscription takes place. The Board of Directors may grant set-off pursuant to Ch. 13 § 41 of the Swedish Companies Act.
  7. The Board of Directors shall have the right to extend the time period for subscription and payment.
  8. The newly issued Class A ordinary shares shall carry entitlement to profit distribution for the first time on the record date for dividends that falls immediately after the new issue has been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

Due to the subscription price of SEK 4.01 per share for the new issue, which is below quotient value, an amount corresponding to the difference between the subscription price and the quotient value for all of the newly issued ordinary shares of Class A shall be transferred to the share capital from the Company’s shareholder’s equity in general (so that the Company’s share capital, through the new issue and the transfer, is increased with an amount corresponding to the quotient value per subscribed, allotted and paid share). This means that maximum SEK 46,831,468.84 can be transferred to the share capital from Company’s shareholder’s equity in general.

c)   Directed new issue of Class A ordinary shares to holders of convertibles

The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolve to increase the Company’s share capital by a maximum of SEK 15,600,999.01 through a new issue of a maximum of 870,060 Class A ordinary shares. The following terms shall apply for the new issue:

  1. The new shares shall, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, be offered for subscription by holders of convertibles in the Company that accepted the renewed exchange offer, each convertible with a nominal value of SEK 100 entitles to subscription of 3 new Class A ordinary shares. The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is that the Company is making a renewed offer to preference shareholders and holders of convertibles in the Company to exchange all remaining outstanding preference shares and convertibles for newly issued Class A ordinary shares (“the Exchange Offer”). The Board is of the opinion that it is in the Company’s interest that additional exchange of outstanding convertibles for newly issued Class A ordinary shares is made in accordance with the Exchange Offer.
  2. Subscription for shares shall be made on a special subscription list during the period August 21, 2018, through August 29, 2018. The Board of Directors shall have the right to extend the subscription period.
  3. Oversubscription may not take place.
  4. The subscription price shall amount to SEK 4.01 per new Class A ordinary share. The subscription price has been set against the background of the volume-weighted average share price of ordinary shares of Class A during the period July 13 - 19, 2018.
  5. Payment for newly issued Class A ordinary shares shall be made through set-off of the share subscribers loan receivable from the Company at the same time that subscription takes place, whereby the loan receivable amount of nominal SEK 100 may SEK 12.03 be used for set-off as payment for every 3 numbers of newly subscribed shares of Class A. The part of the share subscriber’s loan receivable not amounting to a nominal value of SEK 100 and thus does not correspond to 3 shares is relinquished by the share subscriber and will not be refunded. 
  6. The newly issued Class A ordinary shares shall carry entitlement to profit distribution for the first time on the record date for dividends that falls immediately after the new issue has been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

Due to the subscription price of SEK 4.01 per share for the new issue, which is below quotient value, an amount corresponding to the difference between the subscription price and the quotient value for all of the newly issued ordinary shares of Class A shall be transferred to the share capital from the Company’s shareholder’s equity in general (so that the Company’s share capital, through the new issue and the transfer, is increased with an amount corresponding to the quotient value per subscribed, allotted and paid share). This means that maximum SEK 12,112,058.41 can be transferred to the share capital from Company’s shareholder’s equity in general.
