Resolutions on reduction of the share capital, a directed issue of new shares, adoption of new articles of association and a reverse share split

Resolution on reduction of the share capital

The annual general meeting resolved to reduce the Company’s share capital by SEK 7,494690 for transfer to unrestricted equity. The reduction of the share capital shall be carried out without retirement of shares.

Through the reduction, the Company’s share capital is reduced from SEK 141,466,854.894690 to SEK 141,466,847.40. Hereby, the quotient value is reduced from SEK 0.200000011 per share to SEK 0.20 per share.

Resolution on a directed issue of new shares

To enable the proposed consolidated ratio for the reverse share split, the annual general meeting resolved to increase the Company’s share capital by SEK 12.60 by way of a directed issue of sixty-three (63) new shares.

The right to subscribe for the new shares belongs to, with deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights, Erik Penser Bank AB (publ), with a right and an obligation to transfer the shares to enable consolidation. The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights is that the issue is undertaken for the purpose of achieving a total number of shares that is evenly divisible by the consolidation ratio.

The subscription price for the new shares is SEK 0.20 per share, which corresponds to the quotient value of the share. The reason for determining the subscription price at the quotient value of the share is that the issue is undertaken for the purpose of achieving a total number of shares in the Company that is evenly divisible by the consolidation ratio.

Resolution on adoption of new articles of association

The annual general meeting resolved to amend the provisions of the articles of association in accordance with the following.

§ 4 Share capital

The company’s share capital shall be not less than SEK 1,000,000 and not more than SEK 4,000,000.

§ 5 Number of shares

The number of shares in the company shall be not less than 5,000,000 and not more than 20,000,000.

§ 8 Notice

Notice to attend a general meeting shall be advertised in The Official Swedish Gazette (Sw. Post- och Inrikes Tidningar) and on the company’s website. At the time of notice, information about the notice shall be advertised in Svenska Dagbladet.

A shareholder who wishes to participate at the general meeting shall, in addition to satisfying the requirements for participation set out in the Swedish Companies Act, notify the company thereof no later than the date specified in the notice to attend the general meeting. Such date may not be a Sunday, other public holiday, Saturday, Midsummer Eve, Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve and may not occur earlier than five weekdays prior to the general meeting.

Assistants to shareholders will be admitted to the general meeting only if the shareholder notifies the company of the number of assistants (no more than two) in the manner prescribed in the previous paragraph.

Resolution on reverse share split

The annual general meeting resolved on a reverse share split with a consolidation ratio of 1:100, which entails that one hundred (100) existing shares are consolidated to one (1) share. The effect of the reverse share split is that the number of shares, which after the directed issue of new shares amount to 707,334,300 shares, are reduced to 7,073,343 shares. The reverse share split also entails that the share’s quotient value increases from SEK 0.20 to SEK 20.00.

The reason for the proposed reverse share split is that the Company wishes to achieve an expedient number of shares. The resolution is conditional upon that Erik Penser Bank AB (publ), prior to the reverse share split, transfers shares free of charge to those shareholders whose holding of shares is not evenly divisible by one hundred (100).

Resolution on reduction of the share capital

The annual general meeting resolved to reduce the Company’s share capital by SEK 140,052,191.40 for transfer to unrestricted equity. The reduction of the share capital shall be carried out without retirement of shares.

Through the reduction, the Company’s share capital is reduced from SEK 141,466,860.00 to SEK 1,414,668.60. Hereby, the quotient value is reduced from SEK 20.00 per share to SEK 0.20 per share.

The authorization may be used for issues within the limits of the Company’s articles of association.

An issue in accordance with the authorization shall be on market conditions. The board of directors is entitled to decide on additional terms and conditions for issues under this authorization.
