Election of the Chairman of the meeting (Item 2)
The Board of Directors proposes to elect Jan Törnell as Chairman of the Extraordinary General Meeting.
Proposed resolution on the authorization to the Board of Directors to issue convertibles (Item 7)
Context of the proposal
On February 22, 2022, the Company announced that it had entered into an agreement (the “Funding OK“) with Nice & Green SA, a private Swiss company specializing in tailor-made financing solutions (“N&G”). According to the financing agreement, N&G has committed to subscribe convertible bonds with an aggregate nominal amount of up to SEK 40,800,000, divided into four tranches of SEK 10,200,000 each. In accordance with the Financing Agreement, the Company has undertaken to ensure that a general meeting of shareholders of the Company decides to authorize the Board of Directors to rule on issues of convertibles.
For technical registration reasons, each resolution to issue convertible bonds must stipulate a minimum conversion rate. At each issue resolution, this minimum conversion rate constitutes the basis for the maximum number of shares that may be issued upon conversion of the convertibles issued. According to the financing agreement, the convertibles are convertible into shares at a conversion rate corresponding to the higher of (i) a certain minimum rate to be calculated on the basis, among othersthe number of tranches remaining to be liquidated under the Financing Agreement and the limitations of the articles of association at the time of the issuance of each convertible (the “Minimum Rate”) and (ii) 93 percent. the lowest daily volume-weighted average price of the Company’s share over the six trading days preceding the conversion request.
In the event of approval of the proposed authorization, and on the basis of the initial Minimum Rate in application of the foregoing, the Board of Directors may, until the next General Meeting, decide on issues of convertible bonds giving right to conversion into a maximum of 25,760,209 shares. However, it should be noted that as long as 93 percent. of the average price weighted by the lowest daily volumes of the Company’s share during the six trading days preceding the day of the conversion request exceeds the Minimum Rate, the conversion rate thus calculated will be applied and the number of shares issued upon conversion will then be less than the maximum number indicated above. For more information regarding the Financing Agreement, please refer to the Company’s press release dated February 22, 2022.
The proposal of the board of directors
The Board of Directors proposes to the Extraordinary General Meeting to authorize the Board of Directors to, within the framework of the articles of association, by derogation from the preferential subscription right of the shareholders, on one or more occasions during the period until the next General Meeting, decides to issue convertibles in the Company. These issues may only be carried out in accordance with the Financing Agreement and the number of shares that may be issued upon conversion of the convertibles thus issued will be a maximum of 25,760,209 shares.
The purpose of the authorization and the reason for derogation from the shareholders’ preferential subscription right is to allow the Company to draw tranches under the Financing Agreement and thus meet the need for flexible financing required by development operations. of Company products.
The board of directors proposes that the board of directors, the general manager or any person designated by the board of directors, be authorized to bring to the resolution of the extraordinary general meeting all modifications and minor clarifications necessary for the registration of the resolution with the Registrar of Companies.
A valid resolution in accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors requires that the shareholders representing at least two-thirds of the votes cast as well as of the shares represented at the meeting approve the resolution.
