The board of director’s proposed resolution to authorize the board of directors to resolve on issues of shares, warrants and/or convertibles (item 14)

Styrelsen föreslår att årsstämman beslutar om bemyndigande för styrelsen att inom ramen för gällande bolagsordning, med eller utan avvikelse från aktieägarnas företrädesrätt, vid ett eller flera tillfällen intill nästkommande årsstämma, fatta beslut om nyemission av aktier, teckningsoptioner och/eller konvertibler i bolaget. Det totala antalet aktier som omfattas av sådana nyemissioner får motsvara sammanlagt högst 36 000 000 aktier, motsvarande sammanlagt högst ca 40 procent av antalet aktier i bolaget, baserat på det sammanlagda antalet aktier i bolaget vid tidpunkten för kallelsen till årsstämman 2017. Emissionerna skall ske till marknadsmässig teckningskurs, med förbehåll för marknadsmässig emissionsrabatt i förekommande fall, och betalning skall, förutom kontant betalning, kunna ske med apportegendom eller genom kvittning, eller eljest med villkor. Syftet med bemyndigandet och skälen till eventuell avvikelse från aktieägarnas företrädesrätt är att emissioner skall kunna ske för att öka bolagets finansiella flexibilitet och/eller styrelsens handlingsutrymme, exempelvis i samband med strategiska förvärv av bolag och verksamheter som bolaget kan komma att genomföra.

The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting authorize the board of directors to, within the scope of the articles of association, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential right, on one or several occasions during the period until the next annual general meeting, resolve on issues of new shares, warrants and/or convertibles. The total number of shares issued in accordance with this authorization may be equivalent to a maximum of 36,000,000 shares, corresponding to approximately 40 per cent of the number of shares in the company, based on the total number of shares in the company at the time of the notice to the 2017 annual general meeting. The issues shall be made with issue rates at market rate, and where applicable be subject to issue discount at market rate, and payment shall, apart from payment in cash, be made in kind or by set-off or otherwise with conditions. The purpose of the authorization and the reasons for any deviation from the shareholders’ preferential right is that the company shall be able to increase the company’s financial flexibility and/or the board of directors discretion, for example in connection with strategic acquisitions of companies and businesses that the company may carry out.

Styrelsen, verkställande direktören eller den styrelsen i övrigt förordnar, skall bemyndigas att göra sådana smärre justeringar och förtydliganden av stämmans beslut som kan visa sig erforderliga i samband med registreringen hos Bolagsverket.

The Board of Directors, the CEO or the person that the board of director appoints shall be authorized to make such minor amendments and clarifications of the resolution by the general meeting that is required when registering with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

För giltigt beslut enligt styrelsens avgivna förslag enligt ovan fordras att beslutet biträtts av aktieägare med minst två tredjedelar av såväl de avgivna rösterna som de vid stämman företrädda aktierna.

A resolution in accordance with the board of directors’ proposal according to above requires the approval of shareholders representing at least two thirds of the votes cast and the shares represented at the meeting.

Upplysningar på årsstämman / Information at the annual general meeting

Styrelsen och verkställande direktören skall, om någon aktieägare begär det och styrelsen anser att det kan ske utan väsentlig skada för bolaget, lämna upplysningar om förhållanden som kan inverka på bedömningen av ett ärende på dagordningen, förhållanden som kan inverka på bedömningen av bolagets eller dotterföretags ekonomiska situation och bolagets förhållande till annat koncernföretag.

The board of directors and the CEO shall, upon request by any shareholder and where the board of directors determines that it can be done without material harm to the company, provide information of circumstances which may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda, and circumstances which may affect the assessment of the company’s or a subsidiary’s financial position and the company’s relationship to other group companies.
