Transfers of treasury shares held by the company may be made on Nasdaq Stockholm or in connection with the acquisition of companies, businesses or parts thereof with a maximum of number of shares held by the company at the time of the board of director’s transfer resolution. Transfers on Nasdaq Stockholm shall be made only at a price within the price range registered at any given time, or, if in connection with acquisition of companies, businesses or parts thereof, on market terms, however, not to a price below the stock exchange rate.
Stock option plan
The annual general meeting resolved upon a stock option plan for senior executives and other key employees in the group and in total, the plan will encompass a maximum of 5 million stock options. The CEO is entitled to not more than 1.5 million stock options and the other senior executives and other key employees employed in the group are each entitled to not more than 500,000 stock options.
The exercise price for the stock options corresponds to 120 percent of the volume weighted average price of the Seamless share for ten trading days after 1 July 2017.
For senior executives, the vesting of stock options will be conditional upon fulfilment of financial and operational targets as determined by the board of directors. The results hereof will be published in the company’s annual report for 2020 and on the company’s website. To ensure the delivery of shares under the plan, the board of directors was authorised to, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, at one or more occasions, resolve to issue not more than 5 million warrants.

Inköpsrätter) for shares in SDS pro rata in relation to their holdings in the company; or (ii) to a third-party buyer, subject to the purchase price of all outstanding shares in SDS being higher than what the board of directors, with support from its advisors, has estimated as the fair trading value of the SDS shares upon listing.
