This resolution is being taken in terms and for the purposes of the approvals necessary in terms of the Companies Act and the Articles of Association of the Company. (Resolution a)
8. WHEREAS (i) at a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Company held on 30 March 2022, the Directors resolved to obtain authority to buy back Ordinary ‘B’ shares in the Company having a nominal value of €0.003 each; and
(ii) pursuant to Article 5 of the Articles and Article 106(1) (b) of the Companies Act a company may acquire any of its own shares otherwise than by subscription, provided inter alia authorisation is given by an extraordinary resolution, which resolution will need to determine the terms and conditions of such acquisitions and in particular the maximum number of shares to be acquired, the duration of the period for which the authorisation is given and the maximum and minimum consideration.
NOW THEREFORE the members of the Company resolve that the Company be generally authorised to make purchases of Ordinary ‘B’ shares in the Company of a nominal value of €0.003 each in its capital, subject to the following:
(a) the maximum number of shares that may be so acquired is 3,106,480 which is equivalent to 10% of total shares as at the date of the notice to the 2022 Annual General Meeting;
(b) the minimum price that may be paid for the shares is SEK1 per share;
(c) the maximum price that may be paid for the shares is SEK1,000 per share;
(d) the maximum aggregate number of shares that can either be i) issued and allotted under Resolution a and, ii) bought back under this Resolution b, shall not exceed 3,106,480; and
(e) the authority conferred by this resolution shall expire on the date of the 2023 Annual General Meeting, but in any case shall not exceed the period of 18 months, but not so as to prejudice the completion of a purchase contracted before that date. (Resolution b)
9. Closing of the Extraordinary General Meeting
Information about proposals related to Agenda items
Both extraordinary Resolutions, Resolutions a and b, were presented in their entirety to the Annual General Meeting held on 17 May, 2022 (which resolutions were referred to therein as resolutions m and n respectively), and obtained one majority of two required in terms of article 135 of the Companies Act (Cap 386), and in terms of Articles 48B.2(b) of the Articles of Association of the Company. To this end, this Extraordinary General Meeting is being convened within 30 days of the Annual General Meeting, in accordance with the aforementioned provisions of the Companies Act and the Articles, in order to take a fresh vote on the proposed extraordinary resolutions.
Agenda item 7 (Resolution a)
The objectives of the authorisation are to increase the financial flexibility of the Company and to enable the Company to use its own financial instruments for payment in kind or through a directed set-off to a selling partner in connection with any business acquisitions the Company may undertake or to settle any deferred payments in connection with business acquisitions. The market value of the shares on each issue date will be used in determining the price at which shares will be issued. For the purposes of Article 88(7) of the Companies Act, through this resolution the members of the Company are also authorising the Board of Directors to restrict or withdraw the members’ right of pre-emption that would normally entitle members to be offered the newly issued shares in the Company in proportion to their shareholding before such new shares are offered to third parties.
Agenda item 8 (Resolution b)
The Board of Directors proposes that the acquisition by the Company of its own shares shall take place on First North Growth Market at Nasdaq Stockholm or via an offer to acquire the shares to all members of the Company. Such acquisitions of own shares may take place on multiple occasions and will be based on market terms, prevailing regulations and the capital situation at any given time. Notification of any purchase will be made to First North Growth Market at Nasdaq Stockholm and details will appear in the Company’s annual report and accounts. Any resolution to repurchase own shares will be publicly disclosed. The objective of the buyback and transfer right is to ensure added value for the Company’s shareholders and to give the Board increased flexibility with the Company’s capital structure.
Following such buybacks, the intention of the Board would be to either cancel, use as consideration for an acquisition or transfer to employees under a company share incentive plan. Once repurchased, further shareholder and Bondholder approval would be required before those shares could be cancelled.
If used as consideration for an acquisition the intention would be that they would be issued as shares and not sold first.
