Major shareholders' proposals for resolutions regarding item 7 on the agenda

Upland Street Capital AB (Gustav Westman), Bovall Holding AB (Marcus Möller) and BBAG Holding AB (Anders Gustafsson), representing approximately 41 per cent of the total number of shares and votes in the Company (the "Major Shareholders"), have submitted the following proposals for resolutions regarding item 7 according to the above proposed agenda. 

 

Item 7. Election of a new board member

The board of directors consists of seven (7) board members without deputies. Previous general meetings have elected Anders Gustafsson, Christos Stavropoulos, Gustav Westman, Mikael Lindblom, Lisa Gunnarsson, Johan Rutgersson and Errol Koolmeister as board members for the period until the next annual general meeting with Johan Rutgersson as chairman of the board.

 

Member Lisa Gunnarsson has wished to leave the board due to an increased operational assignment outside of the Speqta group. Major Shareholders therefor proposes that Lisa Gunnarsson is dismissed from her position as board member, and that former CEO of Speqta AB, Fredrik Lindros is elected as a new board member of the Company for the period until the end of the next annual general meeting. Major Shareholders propose that Fredrik Lindros shall receive the same fee as other board members of the Company, i.e. SEK 150,000 on an annual basis, when no other remuneration is received from the Company. The fee shall be adjusted pro rata based on the time from the election as board members until the Annual General Meeting in 2024. Fredrik Lindros thus ends as CEO of Speqta AB and Gustav Westman enters as CEO of Speqta AB.

 

The Board of Directors largely fulfils independence in relation to the company and management. However, the proposed amendment does not fulfil independence to the company, as Fredrik Lindros was previously employed. The proposed change is considered to be a good solution for the shareholders and over time, there will be an endeavor to make the board completely independent again.

 

Briefly about Fredrik Lindros

-          Born: 1976

-          Education: Master in Finance and Marketing, Stockholm School of Economics.

-          Other ongoing assignments: Deputy board member in CrewGuard AB.

-          Previous assignments: CEO Speqta AB. Go To Market Director in IP-Only, Head of Business Development at SvD (Schibsted), Strategy Senior Manager at Accenture.

-          Shares: 42 000

-          Warrants: 62 500

-          Independence: Dependent in relation to the company and independent of the company's major shareholders.

 

Item 8. Amendment of the Articles of Association

Following the acquisition of BrightBid in July 2023, the number of shares increased to 24,213,183 which is at the upper end of the current wording of the Articles of Association. In order to adapt the limits of the articles of association regarding the share capital and the number of shares, the board of directors proposes that the articles of association be amended as follows:

 

Current wording

Proposed wording

§4 Share capital

The share capital shall be no less than SEK 32,500,000 and no more than SEK 130,000,000.

§5 Number of shares

The number of shares shall be not less than 6,500,000 and not more than 26,000,000.

§4 Share capital

The share capital shall be not less than SEK 120 000 000 and not more than SEK 480 000 000.

§5 Number of shares

The number of shares shall be not less than 24 000 000 and not more than 96 000 000.

 

 

Both the Board of Directors and the CEO are authorised to make such minor adjustments to the resolution as may be necessary for the registration of the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. A valid resolution under this proposal requires that it is supported by shareholders representing at least two thirds (2/3) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the general meeting.

 

Item 9. Resolution on authorisation for the board of directors to resolve on issues of shares, warrants and/or convertibles

The board of directors proposes that the extraordinary general meeting resolves on an authorisation for the board of directors to, on one or several occasions during the period until the next annual general meeting, with or without deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, resolve to issue shares, warrants and/or convertibles against cash payment and/or with provision for non-cash or set-off or otherwise with conditions.

 

The purpose of the authorisation and the reason for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights is to enable the raising of capital for continued growth and expansion, e.g. through company acquisitions or acquisition of business assets, for the Company's operations and for adjustment of the Company's capital and/or ownership structure. To the extent that the issue is made with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, the issue shall be made on market terms.

 

For issues carried out by virtue of this authorisation, neither the share capital nor the number of shares that are added, or that may be added upon exercise of issued warrants and/or convertibles, shall be able to generate a dilution exceeding 30 percent of the share capital and the number of shares based on the share capital and the number of shares in the Company at the time when the authorisation is first exercised.

 

Both the Board of Directors and the CEO are authorised to make such minor adjustments to the resolution as may be necessary for the registration of the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. A valid resolution under this proposal requires that it is supported by shareholders representing at least two thirds (2/3) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the general meeting.

 

Shareholders' right to request information

Pursuant to Chapter 7, Section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act, the board of directors and the CEO shall, if any shareholder so requests and the board of directors considers that it can be done without significant harm to the Company, provide information at the general meeting on circumstances that may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda.

 

Other matters

The complete proposals for resolutions are set out in the notice, which is also available at the Company's office at Brunnsgatan 11 in Stockholm and will be sent free of charge to shareholders who request it and state their postal address.
