Nordic Nanovector ASA: Allocation of restricted stock units (RSUs) to the board of directors
Oslo, Norway, 2 June 2021
Reference is made to the minutes from Nordic Nanovector ASA's (the "Company") (OSE: NANOV) annual general meeting held on 28 April 2021 in Oslo, Norway (the "AGM").
At the AGM, the shareholders approved the issuance of restricted stock units ("RSUs") to board members who elect to receive all or parts of their remuneration, for the period from the annual general meeting in 2021 to the annual general meeting in 2022, in the form of RSUs.
The RSUs are non-transferable and each RSU give the right and obligation to acquire one share in the Company at a price of NOK 0.20 per share (corresponding to the nominal value of the shares) subject to satisfaction of the applicable vesting conditions stated in the RSU agreements.
The board members may elect to either (i) receive 100% of the compensation in RSUs, (ii) receive 1/3 of the compensation in cash and 2/3 in RSUs, or (iii) receive 2/3 of the compensation in cash and 1/3 in RSUs. The election made by each board member has been set out in the table below. The number of RSUs to be granted to the members of the Board of Directors is calculated as the NOK amount of the RSU opted portion of total minimum compensation to the board member, divided by the market price for the Nordic Nanovector share. The market price is calculated as volume weighted average share price 10 trading days prior to the date of the AGM, i.e. NOK 25.68.
Pursuant to the RSU program, the board members have made the following election and hold the following number of RSUs and shares following such election:
