Proposals by the board of directors
Item 7.a): Resolution on adoption of new articles of association
As a consequence of the proposed reverse split under item 7.b) below, the board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves upon adopting new articles of association pursuant to which the number of shares are changed to not less than 25,000,000 and not more than 100,000,000. It is further proposed that section 6 regarding different share classes is deleted, since this is no longer relevant due to all the company shares being of the same class.
Item 7.b): Resolution on reverse split and a minor directed new share issue for administrative reasons
For purely administrative reasons and in order to achieve a number of shares as even as possible for the reverse split according to the proposal in this item, the Board proposes that the shareholders first decide on a directed new share issue of 28 new shares at the subscription price of SEK 0.10 per share (equivalent to the quota value before the reverse split). The 28 new shares at a total subscription amount of SEK 2.80 will, for administrative reason, be subscribed for exclusively by Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ).
The Board proposes that the meeting decides to carry out a reverse split 1:500, combining 500 shares to 1 share. The Board will be authorised to decide on the record day for the reverse split. After completion of the reverse split and the new share issue above, the share capital will amount to SEK 1,414,599,900 distributed on 28,291,998 shares with a quota value of SEK 50 per share. Due to new share issues carried out during November and December 2012 and January 2013, the number of shares in the company has increased significantly. The reverse split is intended to increase the transparency of the share price, and at the same time resulting in a number of shares more suitable for the company.
The shareholders’ decisions according to item 7.a) - b) above will be regarded as one decision.
The board of directors’ complete proposal regarding item 7 above as well as other documentation required according to the Companies Act will be available at the company (see address above) as well as on the company’s website, Hwww.paresources.seH, from 19 March 2013 at the latest. Copies of the said documents will be sent to shareholders requesting them and stating their postal address.
The shareholders are reminded of their right to put questions to the board of directors and the managing director at the general meeting in accordance with Chapter 7, Section 32 of the Companies Act.
The number of outstanding shares and votes in the company at the time of this notice amounts to 14,145,998,972.
