Guidelines for determining remuneration and other terms of employment for the President & CEO and other members of senior management
The Annual General Meeting resolved to approve the guidelines for determining remuneration and other terms of employment for the President and CEO and other members of senior management in accordance with the Board’s motion.
Repurchase and conveyance of own shares
The Annual General Meeting resolved, in accordance with the Board’s motion, to authorise the Board, on one or more occasions during the period until the next Annual General Meeting, to acquire and divest Class B shares in the Company. The purpose of such repurchases is to be able to adapt the Group’s capital structure and to pay for future acquisitions of businesses and operations using treasury shares. Holdings of treasury shares are also used to secure the Company’s obligations under the share-based incentive programmes adopted at the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders in November 2017 and at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders in August 2018.
Acquisitions are to be carried out on Nasdaq Stockholm at a price that is within the registered price range at any given time, meaning the range between the highest purchase price and the lowest selling price. The Company’s total holding of treasury shares may at no time exceed 10 percent of the total number of shares in the Company. The total number of shares in Momentum Group AB amounts to 28,265,416, and the Company currently holds 500,000 Class B treasury shares, corresponding to 1.8 percent of the total number of shares and 1.3 percent of the total number of votes.
The Meeting authorised the Board, in deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, to divest Class B shares held in treasury in connection with acquisitions of companies or operations, or to secure the conveyance of shares in connection with the Company’s outstanding incentive programmes at any given time, outside Nasdaq Stockholm at a price corresponding to their assessed market value.
At the statutory Board meeting following the Annual General Meeting, the Board resolved to exercise the mandate it had received from the Meeting for the period until the next Annual General Meeting to repurchase Class B shares in the Company.
