The board's proposals to resolutions
Item 7. – Resolutions on (a) reduction of the share capital by way of cancellation of own shares, and (b) increase of the share capital by way of bonus issue
(a) Reduction of the share capital by way of cancellation of own shares
The board of directors proposes that the extraordinary general meeting resolves to reduce the share capital by way of cancellation of own shares which have been repurchased by the board of directors based on authorization given at the annual general meeting in 2022.
The share capital shall be reduced with SEK 25,915.74 by way of cancellation of 250,000 shares. The purpose of the reduction is allocation to unrestricted equity.
The resolution to reduce the share capital under this item (a) may be effectuated without obtaining an authorization from the Swedish Companies Registration Office or, in disputed cases, a court of general jurisdiction, as the Company simultaneously effectuates a bonus issue, as set out under item (b) below, with an amount corresponding to no less than the amount the share capital is being reduced with, as set out above. Combined, these measures entail that neither the Company’s restricted equity nor its share capital is reduced.
(b) Increase of the share capital by way of bonus issue
With the purpose of restoring the share capital after the proposed reduction of the share capital, as set out under item (a) above, the board of directors proposes that the extraordinary general meeting at the same time resolves to increase the share capital by way of a bonus issue with amount corresponding to SEK 25,915.74, which equals the amount that the share capital is reduced with by way of cancellation of shares, as set out under item (a) above. The bonus issue shall be carried out with the amount being transferred from unrestricted equity without the issuance of new shares.
The board of directors proposes that the resolutions under items (a) and (b) above will be voted on at the extraordinary general meeting as one joint resolution.
A valid resolution requires that the shareholders at the meeting representing at least 2/3 of the number of shares and votes represented vote in favor of the proposal.
Item 8 - Resolution to authorize the board of directors to undertake minor adjustments of the resolutions
The board proposes that the general meeting authorizes the board, the CEO or the person otherwise designated by the board, to undertake minor adjustments and clarifications of the resolutions made by the general meeting to the extent it is required for registration of the resolutions.
Number of shares and votes in the Company
At the date of this notice, the Company has a total of 8,955,850 shares outstanding, representing a total of 8,800,870 votes. At the date of submission of this notice to the Swedish Gazette, the Company holds 609,650 of its ordinary shares and 172,000 C-shares.
Shareholders' right to request information
Shareholders are informed of their right under Chapter 7, Section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act to request information at the extraordinary general meeting in respect of circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda and circumstances which may affect the assessment of the Company's financial situation. The board and the CEO shall provide such information if the board considers that this can be done without significant damage to the Company. The duty of disclosure also applies to the Company’s relationships with other companies in the group and such circumstances as mentioned above applicable to subsidiaries.
The notice includes the full proposal for the resolutions proposed by the board. Documents pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act will be made available to shareholders at the Company’s office no later than two weeks before the extraordinary general meeting and will be sent upon request in connection therewith to shareholders’ stating their postal address.
