Special arrangements because of the risk for spread of the virus COVID-19 (coronavirus)
The board of directors has, in light of continued spread of the coronavirus, resolved to implement certain precautionary measures for the annual general meeting.

Due to the board of directors’ resolution, no food or beverage will be served in connection with the annual general meeting, no statement will be made by the CEO, the number of non-shareholders present at the meeting will be limited, and the timeframe for the annual general meeting will be kept a minimum, without restricting the shareholders’ rights. As supported by the special application of rules issued by the Swedish Corporate Governance Board, the board members and CEO will also consider not to attend the annual general meeting in person.

In light of the authorities’ recommendations and for shareholders who are concerned about the coronavirus outbreak, the shareholders are asked to carefully consider the possibility not to attend the meeting in person and instead attend by proxy. A temporary change of law enables the Company to collect proxies from shareholders and to allow postal voting. The board of directors intends to apply the possibility of proxy collection. More information regarding this procedure will be held available on the Company’s website, www.ossdsign.com

The board of directors’ proposed resolutions 

Item 8
The board of directors proposes that the Company’s result shall be carried forward in new account and that no dividend shall be paid for the financial year 2019.

Item 13
The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves on an authorization for the board of directors to – for the period up to the next annual general meeting, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights and at one or more occasions – resolve upon issuance of new shares, warrants and/or convertible debentures. Payment may be made in cash, in kind, through set-off of claims or otherwise be conditional. The Company’s share capital may by support of the authorization be increased by an amount corresponding to not more than 20 per cent of the share capital after such issue(s). Deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights shall be allowed in situations where a directed issue is deemed more appropriate for the Company due to timing, commercial or similar reasons, and in order to enable acquisitions.

The chairman of the board of directors, the managing director, or anyone authorized by the board of directors, shall have the right to make any minor adjustments required in order to register this resolution. 

The resolution under item 13 is valid only if supported by shareholders holding not less than two thirds of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the general meeting.

Item 14
The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves on changes to the articles of association by introducing a new provision (a new section 9, whereby the current sections 9 and 10 become sections 10 and 11) allowing the board of directors to collect proxy forms at the Company’s expense and, prior to a general meeting, resolve that shareholders shall have the option to exercise their voting rights by means of postal voting, pursuant to the procedure stated in the Swedish Companies Act, with the heading “Collection of proxy forms and postal voting”, and with the following wording: “The board of directors may collect proxies at the company’s expense pursuant to the procedure stated in Chapter 7, section 4, second paragraph of the Swedish Companies Act. The board of directors may also, prior to a general meeting, resolve that shareholders shall have the option to exercise their voting rights by means of postal voting pursuant to the procedure stated in Chapter 7, section 4 a, second paragraph of the Swedish Companies Act”.

The chairman of the board of directors, the managing director or a person appointed by the board of directors shall be authorised to make any minor adjustments required to register the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

The resolution under item 14 is valid only if supported by shareholders holding not less than two thirds of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the general meeting.

Item 15
The following change to the articles of association is proposed by reason of the right to participate at the general meeting being regulated by the Swedish Companies Act (2005: 551) and therefore does not need to be part of the articles of association, and that an expected legislative change in 2020 will lead to the current wording being contrary to law. The board of directors proposes to change the prerequisites for participating in shareholders’ meetings in the articles of association (§ 7), whereby the following wording in § 7, second paragraph is changed: “Shareholders wishing to participate in general meetings must be listed as shareholders in a printout or other presentation of the entire share register reflecting the circumstances five weekdays before the general meeting and notify the company no later than the date specified in the notice of the general meeting. The last mentioned date may not be a Sunday, other public holiday, Saturday, Midsummer’s Eve, Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve and may not occur earlier than the fifth weekday before the general meeting.” It is proposed that said provision is changed to the following new wording: “Shareholders wishing to participate in general meetings must notify the company no later than the date specified in the notice of the general meeting.”

The chairman of the board of directors, the managing director or a person appointed by the board of directors shall be authorised to make any minor adjustments required to register the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

The resolution under item 15 is valid only if supported by shareholders holding not less than two thirds of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the general meeting.

Number of shares and votes in the Company
The total number of shares and votes in the Company at the time of issuance of this notice is 17,733,168. The Company does not hold any of its own shares.

Shareholders’ right to request information
Pursuant to Chapter 7 section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act (Sw. aktiebolagslagen (2005:551)) the board of directors and the managing director are under a duty to, if any shareholder so requests and the board of directors deems that it can be made without material damage to the Company, provide information, regarding circumstances which may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda or of the Company’s economic situation.
