Resolution on authorization for issues of shares, warrants and/or convertibles
The annual general meeting resolved in accordance with the proposal from the board of directors to authorize the board of directors, at one or several occasions, during the time up until the next annual general meeting, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, to resolve to issue new shares, warrants and/or convertibles. Issues may be made with or without provisions regarding payment in kind or through set-off or other provisions. The total number of shares that that may be issued pursuant to the authorization, alternatively be issued through exercise of warrants and/or conversion of convertibles, shall not exceed 2,793,610 shares. The purpose of the authorization is to enable the company to raise working capital, to execute acquisitions of companies or operating assets as well as to enable issues to industrial partners within the framework of partnerships and alliances. To the extent an issue is made with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, the issue should be made on market terms (subject to customary new issue discount, as applicable).
Resolution on implementation of a long-term incentive program for new board members
The annual general meeting resolved in accordance with the proposal from the Nomination Committee to implement a long-term incentive program for the new board members Mette-Marie Harild, Ulrik Harrysson and Mikael Persson based on issue of warrants.
The warrants program shall comprise a maximum of 150,000 warrants, whereby the right to subscribe for the warrants only shall vest in the new board members Mette-Marie Harild, Ulrik Harrysson and Mikael Persson, who shall have the right to subscribe for 50,000 warrants each.
Each warrant entitles the right to subscribe for one new share in the company for a subscription price per share corresponding to 150 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market’s official price list for shares in the company during the period from and including 6 May 2021 to and including 12 May 2021. Subscription of shares by virtue of the warrants may be effected from and including 1 May 2024 to and including 31 May 2024.
The warrants shall be issued to the fair market value of the warrants at the time of subscription, which shall be determined by an independent valuation institute in accordance with the Black & Scholes valuation formula.
The Nomination Committee considers that a share-based incentive program is an important part of a competitive remuneration package in order to attract, retain and motivate internationally qualified board members of the company and to stimulate the board members to perform their utmost in order to maximize value creation for all shareholders. Therefore, the Nomination Committee considers that the warrants program will increase the new board members commitment to the company’s operations, strengthen the loyalty to the company and be beneficial for the company as well as its shareholders.
In case all warrants that are issued in relation to the warrants program are exercised for subscription of shares, a total of 150,000 shares will be issued.
