Targovax ASA: Issuance of restricted stock units (RSUs) to the board members

Reference is made to the annual general meeting of Targovax ASA (the "Company") on 29 April 2020 (the "AGM") where election of members to the board of directors was according to the nomination committee’s proposal. At the same AGM of the Company the board of directors was authorized to extend the Company’s restricted stock unit ("RSU") program and to issue RSUs to the board members. The RSUs are non-transferable and each RSU gives the right and obligation to acquire one share in the Company at a price of NOK 0.10 per share (corresponding to the nominal value of the shares) subject to satisfaction of the applicable vesting conditions.

If the board members choose to receive the board remuneration in RSUs they must 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 number of RSUs is calculated on the basis of a board remuneration of NOK 500 000 to the chairperson of the board and NOK 290,000 to the other board members, divided by the market price of the Company's shares calculated as the average share price for the 10 trading days prior to the AGM being NOK 6.81 per share.
