Guidelines for Remuneration to Senior Executives
The Meeting approved the proposal of the Board regarding guidelines for remuneration to senior executives, which entail the following.
A Remuneration Committee elected from within the Board’s ranks is assigned the task of preparing guidelines for salaries and other employment conditions for the CEO and other senior executives and presenting Board motions for resolution on such matters. The Board makes decisions on the salary and other remuneration paid to the CEO. The CEO is to determine the salary and other remuneration paid to other senior executives in accordance with the Board’s guidelines. The term “other senior executives” refers to individuals who, in addition to the CEO, constitute Group management. Basic remuneration levels are to be consistent with market terms. Remuneration consists of a fixed basic salary, any variable remuneration calculated on the basis of predetermined targets, other benefits, pension and financial instruments in the form of warrants. The division between fixed salary and variable remuneration is to be proportionate to the executive’s responsibilities and authorities. The variable remuneration for the CEO and other senior executives may not exceed 50% of their fixed salary. Pension terms are to be based on defined-contribution pension solutions. The period of notice in case of termination by the Company may not exceed six months. During the period of notice of up to six months, the employee receives a full salary and employee benefits. Decisions on share and share price-related incentive schemes are made by the general meeting of shareholders. In individual cases and under special circumstances, the Board may deviate from the aforementioned guidelines.
Warrants to senior executives and key individuals
The Meeting resolved on a program for senior executives and key individuals of a maximum of 408,000 warrants, corresponding to a dilution of approximately 0.99 per cent of shares and votes. The exercise period is 8 May 2021–8 June 2021.
Authorisation of the Board to decide on a new issue of shares
The Meeting authorised the Board, on one or more occasions for the period up to the next AGM, to resolve on new share issue(s) totalling not more than 4,000,000 shares and subject to the limits stipulated by the Articles of Association. New share issue(s) shall be possible with or without preferential rights for shareholders, and with payment through contribution in kind, by set-off or on terms in accordance with Chapter 2, Section 5, Paragraph 2, Subsections 1-3 and 5 of the Swedish Companies Act. New share issue(s) in accordance with this authorisation shall be on market terms. The purpose of the authorisation and the reason for the deviation from shareholders’ preferential rights is to provide the Board with the flexibility to finance and further facilitate expansion, organically as well as through acquisitions.
