Long-term share based incentive program (LTI 2017/2021)
The AGM approved the Board’s proposal regarding the implementation of a long-term share based incentive program (LTI 2017/2021) and hedging arrangements in respect thereof by authorising the Board to resolve on a directed issue of shares of series C (with 1/10 vote and without dividend rights) to a third party, to repurchase those shares and transfer of ordinary shares to participants in the program.
The program comprises 20 participants employed within the Group, including the CEO. In brief, LTI 2017/2021 means that the participants will receive, subject to the performance and development of three dfferent performance conditions during the financial year 2017, shares free of charge on the allotment day, which will occur after the 2021 Annual General Meeting but before June 30, 2021. The maximum number of shares that may be received shall correspond to 20 percent of the participant’s actually paid salary 2017, however with certain limitations regarding the maximum number of shares that can be allotted to each participant. Receivement of shares is conditional upon the participant being employed within the group until the expiration of 2020.
The program means that the participants may be allotted a maximum of 212,986 shares (an additional 53,247 shares are for hedging the costs of social security contributions) and the maximum cost for LTI 2017/2021 is estimated to approximately MSEK 8.5.
Authorisation for the Board to decide on new share issue
The AGM approved the Board’s proposal regarding an authorization for the Board to decide upon a new share issue in connection with company acquisitions.
