Convertible program
The AGM resolved that JM shall raise a debenture loan with a maximum nominal value of SEK 230,000,000 by issuing a maximum of 645,000 convertibles aimed at all employees in Sweden. The convertibles’ issue price shall correspond to the nominal amount. It shall be possible to convert each convertible to an ordinary share, at a conversion price equivalent to 125 percent of the latest noted average price paid for ordinary shares in JM on the official exchange list of Nasdaq Stockholm AB for the period extending from March 27, 2020 to April 09, 2020. Conversion may commence on June 1, 2023 through April 24, 2024, with the exclusion of the period January 1 through the record date for dividends each year, or if the Annual General Meeting should not resolve on a dividend during a year, the third business day after the AGM. In the event of full participation in the offer as well as full conversion, JM’s share capital could increase by a maximum of SEK 645,000, through the issue of a maximum of 645,000 ordinary shares, each with a quota value of SEK 1. This corresponds to dilution of about 0.92 percent of the share capital and votes in JM.

The term of the convertibles will begin on May 28, 2020, and fall due for payment on May 27, 2024, insofar as conversion has not already been undertaken. The interest rate is annual and based in part on the conversion rate and the calculated market value for the convertibles at issuance.

The AGM resolved that the terms for the convertible program will otherwise be in accordance with the proposal from the Board of Directors.
