To be entitled to participate at the EGM, in addition to providing notification of participation, a shareholder whose shares are held in the name of a nominee must register its shares in its own name so that the shareholder is recorded in the share register as of 5 August 2021. Such registration may be temporary (so-called voting right registration) and is requested from the nominee in accordance with the nominee’s procedures and in such time in advance as the nominee determines. Voting right registrations completed 9 August 2021 at the latest are taken into account when preparing the share registry.
Shareholders may exercise their voting rights at the meeting only by voting in advance, so-called postal voting pursuant to Section 22 of the Act (2020:198) on Temporary Exceptions to facilitate the execution of general meetings in companies and other associations.

The completed form should be sent to address: Elos Medtech AB (publ), Extraordinary General Meeting 2021, c/o Advokatfirman Vinge KB, Box 11 025, SE-404 21 Gothenburg, Sweden. The completed form may also be submitted electronically and must then be sent to email@example.com. If the shareholder is a legal entity, a registration certificate or other authorization document shall be attached to the form. The same applies if the shareholder votes in advance by proxy. The shareholder may not provide the advance vote with special instructions or conditions. If this is the case, the vote (i.e. the advance vote as a whole) is invalid.
