Election of Chairman of the Meeting (item 2)

Resolution on number of board members (item 7)
It was noted that Anders Pettersson and Fabian Heß intend to leave the board of directors for Victoria Park at or before the Extraordinary General Meeting. Deutsche Annington Acquisition Holding GmBH and HomeStar InvestCo AB proposes that the board shall consist of only the five remaining board members.
Resolution on redemption of preference shares and on transfer of funds to the statutory reserve (item 8)
The Board of Directors proposes that the EGM, under the redemption clause in the articles of association § 5.4, resolves on a reduction of the share capital of SEK 113,525.17 for repayment to the shareholders by redeeming all 1,032,047 preference shares in the company.
In accordance with the articles of association § 5.4.3 the redemption price for every redeemed share shall amount to SEK 300, which corresponds to 120 per cent of the original subscription price at the first issuing of preference shares. The redemption price exceeds the quotient value with SEK 299.89. Therefore, the total redemption amount will be SEK 309,614,100, whereof SEK 309,500,574.83 will be repaid from the company’s freely distributal reserves and SEK 113,525.17 will be repaid from the company’s share capital.
According to the annual report for the financial year 2018 the freely distributal reserves amounted to SEK 584,156,131 per 31 December 2018. No changes of the company’s restricted equity have been carried out since then. However, the annual general meeting held on 23 April 2019 resolved on a dividend on preference shares amounting to SEK 20,640,940 in total.
It is proposed that the EGM resolves that, when the preference shares are redeemed, SEK 113,525.17 is simultaneously transferred from freely distributable reserves to the company’s statutory reserve.
The record date for the redemption of preference shares is proposed to be 8 July 2019, in which case payment of the redemption price is expected to be made on 11 July 2019. The last day for trading in preference shares including a right to the redemption price will, if the EGM resolves in accordance with the proposal, be 4 July 2019.
Resolution to authorise the Chief Executive Officer to make adjustments to the resolutions (item 9)
The Board of Directors proposes that the EGM authorises the Chief Executive Officer, or the person appointed by the Chief Executive Officer, to make minor adjustments and clarifications of the resolutions adopted by the EGM to the extent that such should be required for the registration and execution of the resolutions.
At the time of the issue of this notice, the total number of shares in the company amounts to 243,906,359, whereof 76,742,815 ordinary shares of class A, 166,131,497 ordinary shares of class B and 1,032,047 preference shares, corresponding to a total number of votes of 93,459,169.4. The company does not hold any own shares.
The Board of Directors and the Chief Executive Officer shall, in the event that a shareholder request it and the Board of Directors deems that such request may take place without significant detriment to the Company or its subsidiaries, provide information during the EGM with regard to circumstances that could influence the appraisal of an item on the agenda. This obligation to provide information shall also apply to the Company's relationship with its subsidiaries, as well as the consolidated accounts.
