Resolution on authorisation for the Board to decide on the new issue of shares and/or warrants and/or convertibles
The Meeting resolved to authorise the Board, on one or more occasions during the period until the next Annual General Meeting, to resolve on the new issue of shares and/or warrants and/or convertibles for cash payment and/or through contribution in kind, by set-off or otherwise on terms, and thus disapply shareholders’ preferential rights.
When such authorisation is utilised, the subscription price and other terms and conditions are to be market-based, taking into account market issue discounts where appropriate.
The number of shares that it will be possible to issue and the number of new shares that it will be possible to subscribe for under warrants and the number of shares to which convertibles carry entitlement to conversion are, on full subscription, full conversion and full exercise of the warrants, to total a maximum of a number that falls within the limits of the Articles of Association’s provisions on the number of shares.
The purpose of the authorisation and the reason for possibly disapplying shareholders’ preferential rights is to carry out issues in order to finance the company’s operations, commercialisation and development of the company’s products and/or acquisitions of operations, companies or parts of companies, and/or to broaden the ownership base of the company.
Resolution on adjustment authorization
The Meeting resolved to authorise the Board, the CEO, or the party appointed by the Board in its place, to make minor adjustments to resolutions made by the Meeting that may be necessary in connection with registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and Euroclear Sweden AB.
