ITEM 7: RESOLUTION ON A NEW SHARE ISSUE
The Board of Directors proposes that the general meeting resolves on a new share issue of not more than 21 916 666 shares resulting in an increase of the share capital by not more than SEK 442 340.06. The company’s shareholders shall have preferential right to subscribe for new shares in relation to their previous shareholdings whereby two (2) shares shall entitle to subscription of one (1) new share. The subscription price shall be SEK 2.60 per share.
In the event not all of the shares are subscribed for pursuant to preferential rights, the board of directors will determine how the shares not subscribed for pursuant to preferential rights shall be allotted. Allotment shall thereby be made primarily to persons who subscribed for shares with subscription rights regardless of whether or not such persons were shareholders as of the record date, and in the event of oversubscription, allotment shall be made pro rata in proportion to the number of subscription rights exercised by such persons to subscribe for shares. Any remaining shares shall be allotted to the persons who have subscribed for shares without preferential rights and in the event of oversubscription, allotment shall be made pro rata in proportion to their subscription. To the extent this is not possible; allotment shall be made by drawing of lots. Any thereafter remaining shares shall be allotted to those who have provided guarantees for the subscription of shares, pro rata in relation to the guarantee provided.
The record date for entitlement to participate in the rights issue with pre-emptive right shall be 19 November 2015. Subscription for shares by exercise of subscription rights shall be made by simultaneous cash payment during the period as from 23 November 2015 up to and including 7 December 2015. Subscription for new shares without subscription rights shall be submitted during the same period on a separate subscription list. Payment for new shares subscribed for without subscription rights shall be made in cash no later than on the third bank day from dispatch of the contract note setting forth the allotment of shares. The Board of Directors shall be entitled to extend the period for subscription and payment. The new shares shall entitle to dividend as from the first record date for dividend to occur after the registration of the new share issue with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.
