Moreover, the AGM resolved that the new ordinary shares that may be issued with the support of the authorization granted to the Board to decide to issue new ordinary shares will provide entitlement to dividends, in accordance with the above, as of the day on which these shares have been entered into the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB. Assuming that the authorization is exercised in full, the dividend on additional ordinary shares will amount to a maximum of SEK 40,254,780.

Guidelines for remuneration of senior executives

Resolution regarding authorization for the Board of Directors to resolve upon new issue of ordinary shares
The AGM resolved to authorize the Board of Directors on one or more occasions during the period until the end of the next AGM, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights, to decide on the issuance of new ordinary shares. The total number of ordinary shares that may be issued pursuant to the authorization may not exceed 10 percent of the total number of ordinary Hemfosa shares, at the time of exercising the authorization. Such new ordinary shares shall be issued at a subscription price corresponding to market terms and payment can be made, except for payment in cash, by assets contributed in kind or by set-off.
Resolution on warrant program including issue and transfer of warrants
The AGM resolved on a directed issuance in respect of not more than 1,400,000 warrants as a feature of the introduction of a warrant program for employees of the Hemfosa Group. The reason for not applying the shareholders’ pre-emption rights is to introduce a remuneration element which is competitive within each market the company operates, to provide alignment for the management team with company strategy, to create focus amongst employees on delivering exceptional performance which contributes to value creation for shareholders and to give employees the opportunity to take part in the company’s success.
The warrants are to be transferred to different categories of employees in the Group. The subscription price per share shall be the average price of the ordinary share at the time of issuance of the warrants, to be increased or decreased in accordance with Carnegie’s Real Estate Index (CREX) up to and including September 2022, when it will be finally determined.
The company will by means of a cash bonus subsidize up to 100 percent of the participants’ premium. The bonus consists of two payments, each of 50 percent, during the term of the warrant program. Each warrant entitles a right to subscribe for one (1) ordinary share in the company. The warrants may be exercised to subscribe for new ordinary shares, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the warrants, during a two week period from the day following the publication of the interim report for the period July-September 2022, the year-end report for 2022 and the interim report for the period January-March 2023, but not further than up to and including June 10, 2023.
Upon full exercise of all warrants, 1,400,000 new shares can be issued, which corresponds to a dilution of approximately 0.83 percent of the total number of ordinary shares and the total number of votes in Hemfosa. Calculated based on the total number of shares in the company, including preference shares, the dilution amounts to approximately 0.78 percent.
