8.  Resolution on the result; proposal of the Board of Directors to cover the loss by the use of non-restricted equity reserves and by the reduction of share capital


The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that no dividend be paid for the financial year ended 31 December 2014 and that the cumulative loss of the company, EUR 5,505,421.98 (taking in account the loss of the financial year amounting to EUR 5,519,009.82) be covered by non-restricted equity reserves to an amount of EUR 2,131,259.02 and that the remaining loss of EUR 3,374,162.96 be covered by a reduction of the share capital.

After the proposed measures the share capital of the company would amount to EUR 1,346,283.28 and the reserves for non-restricted equity to EUR 0.00.

The proposal aims to fully cover the cumulative loss of the company, and to strengthen the ratio between the equity and the share capital of the company. After the proposed measures the equity of the company amounts to 162.9% of the share capital.

The use of share capital to cover losses results in a three-year restraint on the distribution of funds. For a period of three years from the registration of the reduction, the company may not distribute non-restricted equity except in compliance with the creditor protection process provided for in Chapter 14, Sections 3 – 5 of the Companies Act.

The Board of Directors may also decide on a free share issue to the company itself. The number of shares to be issued to the company shall be a maximum of 1/10 of all the company’s shares.
