Item 12. Resolution on a) amendment of the articles of association and b) reverse share split

The meeting resolutions in accordance with item a)-b) below are conditional upon each other and the meeting resolutions shall accordingly be adopted as one resolution.

a) Resolution on amendment of the articles of association

In order to enable the reverse share split proposed under item b) below and to adapt the share capital limits and number of shares of the articles of association, the board of directors proposes that the meeting resolves to amend §4 (Share capital) and §5 (Number of shares) of the articles of association in accordance with the following.

















Present wording Proposed wording
§4 Share capitalThe share capital shall not be less than SEK 15,300,000 and not more than SEK 61,200,000. §4 Share capitalThe share capital shall not be less than SEK 32,500,000 and not more than SEK 130,000,000.
§5 Number of sharesThe number of shares shall not be less than 30,600,000 and not more than 122,400,000. §5 Number of sharesThe number of shares shall not be less than 6,500,000 and not more than 26,000,000.


b) Resolution on reverse share split

The board of directors proposes that the meeting resolves on reverse share split 1:10, whereby 10 shares will be consolidated into one share.

A shareholder who on the record date does not hold a number of shares that is evenly divisible by 10 will receive, from a guarantor (the “Guarantor”), free of charge, such number of shares that the shareholder’s holding become evenly divisible by 10 (so-called rounding up). This means, at the time of the reverse share split, all shareholders will hold shares equivalent to a whole number of new shares and there will be no excess shares (so-called fractions). The Guarantor will further round down its remaining shareholding in the Company to the nearest number that is evenly divisible by 10 in order to complete the reverse share split. The Guarantor will receive a fair market remuneration for the shares that the Guarantor provides with in order to complete the reverse share split.

After completion of the reverse share split, the number of shares in the Company will correspond to a maximum of 6,591,772 which entails a quota value of approximately SEK 5 per share.

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting authorizes the board of directors to determine the record date for the reverse share split. The record date may not occur before the resolution on reverse share split has been registered at the Swedish Companies Registration Office (Sw. Bolagsverket).

The board of directors shall, in connection with determining the record date for the reverse share split, disclose the resolution determining the record date and disclose further information on the procedure for the reverse share split.

The board of directors as well as the CEO are authorized to make minor adjustments in the resolution under item 12 a)–b) that may be required in connection with the registration thereof at the Swedish Companies Registration Office and Euroclear Sweden AB.

For the resolution in accordance with the proposal under item 12 a)–b) to be valid, it is required that the proposal is approved by shareholders holding at least two thirds (2/3) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the meeting.

Item 14. Resolution on implementation of Incentive Program 2022/2025 B by a) issue of warrants to the Company and b) approval of transfer of warrants to members of the group management, other executives and key employees

It is proposed that the annual general meeting resolves to implement a long-term incentive program (”Incentive Program 2022/2025 B”) for current and future members of the group management, other executives and key employees (the “Participants”). The proposal to implement an incentive program has been presented, since the board of directors deem it essential and in line with the interest of all shareholders in the Company, to create a greater involvement for Participants in the Company in regards of the Company’s development.

In the light of the above, the board of directors propose that the general meeting resolves to implement the Incentive Program 2022/2025 B and resolves to issue warrants in accordance with the following and that the general meeting resolves on approval of transfer of the warrants.

The maximum number of new shares will correspond to not more than 210,000 considering the proposal for resolution on reverse share split under item 12 above, corresponding to a dilution of approximately 3.1 percent, provided that all issued warrants are acquired by the Participants and all acquired warrants are fully exercised. The calculation is based on the maximum number of shares and votes that can be issued divided by the total number of shares and votes after such an issue, based on the total number of shares in the Company as of the date of this proposal.

A. Issue of warrants to the Company

The issue of warrants, which include not more than 210,000 warrants of series 2022/2025 B, considering the proposal for resolution on reverse share split under item 12 above, entails, upon full exercise of the warrants, that the Company’s share capital will increase by not more than SEK 1,050,000.08 (based on the quota value after the reverse share split under item 12 above and that no re-calculation has been made), in accordance with the following terms and conditions.

1. The right to subscribe for warrants shall, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, belong to the Company who shall transfer the warrants to the Participants in accordance with item B below.

2. The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to implement an incentive program whereby the Participants, through their own investment, shall take part in and aim towards a positive value development of the Company during the entire period which the proposed incentive program include, and that the Company shall be able to retain competent and committed staff.

3. The warrants are issued to the Company without consideration.

4. Subscription of the warrants shall be carried out by the Company up to and including 30 June 2022. The board of directors is entitled to extend the subscription period.

5. Subscription of shares through the exercise of warrants shall be made during the period from 9 July 2025 up to and including 9 October 2025, considering the at each time applicable insider legislation.

6. Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) share in the Company to an exercise price of 130 percent of the volume-weighted average of the subscription prices quoted from 20 June 2022 up to and including 1 July 2022 (as quoted on Nasdaq First North Growth Market where the Company’s shares are listed) for shares in the Company (however not lower than the quota value of the share). Day without price quotation shall not be included in the calculation. Potential share premium, if applicable, shall be allocated to the free share premium reserve.

7. Warrants held by the Company and which have not been transferred in accordance with item B below, may be cancelled by the Company following a resolution by the Company’s board of directors. Cancellation must be reported to the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

8. In order to fulfil the obligations under Incentive Program 2022/2025 B, the board of directors proposes that the general meeting approves that the Company may dispose of and transfer the warrants to the Participants according to item B below.

9. The new shares issued following subscription of shares through the exercise of the warrants shall entitle right to dividend for the first time on the record date for dividend closest after the new shares have been registered by the Swedish Companies Registration Office and registered in the register of shareholders maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB.

10. Customary re-calculation terms shall apply for the warrants.

If the proposal for reverse share split under item 12 above is not implemented, the maximum number of warrants that may be issued shall correspond to 2,100,000 with the corresponding number of additional shares to be issued through exercise of the warrants.

The board of directors as well as the CEO are authorized to make minor adjustments in the resolution that may prove to be required in connection with the registration thereof at the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

B. Approval of transfer of warrants to the Participants

1. The right of acquisition

The right to acquire warrants is accrues to current and future members of the group management, other executives and key employees. The Participants’ right to acquire warrants have been differentiated with reference to position, responsibility and working performance in the Company.

The right to acquire warrants requires that the Participant has not resigned or been dismissed as an employee and the Participants enters into a post-sale purchase right agreement etc. with the Company. Otherwise, the warrants are freely transferable. The following distribution applies for the allotment of warrants for the Participants.



































Category Maximum number of Participants Maximum number of warrants per Participant Maximum number of warrants in the category
CEO/group CEO 1 person 62,500 62,500
Other members of the group management and other executives 3 persons 50,000

82,500



Other key employees 10 persons 10,000 65,000
Total 14 persons - 210,000




Allotment requires both that acquisition of warrants is legally possible and that acquisitions can be made to reasonable administrative and financial efforts.

Warrants may also be offered to future new employees. For such acquisitions, the terms and conditions shall be the same or equivalent to those set forth in this resolution, including, but not limited to, those set forth under Price and payment etc. below. 

The Company’s board of directors are not covered by Incentive Program 2022/2025 B.

2. Notification period

Notification of acquisition of warrants shall be made during the period from 4 July 2022 up to and including 8 July 2022. However, the board of directors is entitled to extend or postpone the notification period for acquisition and to specify a corresponding notification period for new employees whose acquisition takes place after the end of the initial notification period.

3. Notification and allotment

Individuals entitled to acquire warrants shall apply for acquisition of warrants in lots equivalent to the maximum number of warrants that are offered or reduced by lots of 100 warrants. Allotment shall be made in full lots of 100 warrants.

4. Price and payment etc.

The warrants shall be transferred at market terms to a price established by assessed market value for the warrants applying the Black & Scholes valuation model (the “Warrant Premium”) calculated by an independent valuation institute. The Warrant Premium is established on the day of transfer of warrants from the Company to the Participants.

The market price shall be determined in the same way for acquisitions made by new employees after the end of the initial notification period.

The allotted warrants shall be paid for in cash in connection with acquisition of the warrants. The board of directors shall set a corresponding date of payment for acquisitions made by new employees.

5. Terms and conditions for allotment etc.

Since the warrants will be acquired by the Participants to assessed market value, no performance conditions will apply for the allotment or the right to retain or exercise the warrants. However, as mentioned, the right to acquire warrants is conditional upon that the Participants enter into an agreement regarding post-sale purchase right etc. with the Company.

C. Further information regarding the issue and the transfer etc.

1. Dilution

Upon full exercise of all warrants under Incentive Program 2022/2025 B up to 210,000 shares (with reservation for any re-calculation and considering the proposal for resolution on reverse share under item 12 above) may be issued, which corresponds to a dilution of approximately 3.1 percent. The calculation is based on the maximum number of shares and votes which may be issued divided with the total number of shares and votes after such issue, based on the total number of outstanding shares and votes in the Company as of the date of this proposal. Upon full exercise of the warrants, the Company’s share capital will increase by SEK 1,050,000.08 based on the quota value after the reverse share split in accordance with the proposal for resolution under item 12 above.

2. Calculation of the market value

According to a preliminary valuation made by an independent valuation institute for the statement of this proposal, the Warrant Premium per warrant is estimated to SEK 14.70, assuming (i) that the volume-weighted average price paid during the period from and including 20 June 2022 up to and including 1 July 2022 (according to the official price list on Nasdaq First North Growth Market, where the Company’s shares are listed) for shares in the Company will amount to SEK 65, (ii) that the subscription price per share upon exercise for warrants amounts to SEK 84.50, (iii) that the warrants are transferred to the Participants around 4 July 2022, (iv) an assessed future volatility during the term of the warrants corresponding to 43 percent, (v) an assessed risk-free interest during the term of the warrants corresponding to 1 percent and (vi) that no dividend will be paid during the term of the warrants. The Option Premium is calculated considering that the proposal for resolution on reverse share split under item 12 above is implemented but not considering the proposal for dividend under item 8 b).

3. Costs for the Company and effect on key figures etc.

The incentive program is expected to have a marginal effect on the Company’s earnings per share. Given that the warrants shall be transferred to a price corresponding to the market price, the Company’s assessment is that no particular social security costs will arise for the Company due to the Incentive Program 2022/2025 B.

The total costs, including other expenses for Incentive Program 2022/20225 B related to remuneration to external advisors, valuation, own work and administration of the program, are estimated to amount to approximately SEK 100,000 during the term of the incentive program.

4. Preparation of the matter

The principles of Incentive Program 2022/2025 B have been prepared by the board of directors in consultation with external advisors.


5. Outstanding Programs

The Company currently has four outstanding share-based incentive programs, Incentive Program 2019/2022 C and Incentive Program 2019/2022 D and Incentive Program 2021/2024 A and Incentive Program 2021/2024 B.

Incentive Program 2019/2022 C and Incentive Program 2019/2022 D was resolved at the extraordinary general meeting on 13 August 2019. Incentive Program 2019/2022 C was addressed to certain members of the board of directors and consist of 240,000 warrants and Incentive Program 2019/2022 D was addressed to current and future members of the group management and key employees and consists of 420,000 warrants. The warrants entitle the holder to subscribe for one new share in the Company, with a term of three years. The subscription price upon exercise of the warrants for subscription of shares under the two incentive programs amounts to SEK 11.47.

Incentive Program 2021/2024 A and Incentive Program 2021/2024 B was resolved at the annual general meeting on 18 May 2021. Incentive Program 2021/2024 A was addressed to certain members of the board of directors and consist of 300,000 warrants and Incentive Program 2021/2024 B was addressed to current and future members of the group management, other executives and key employees and consists of 1,150,000 warrants. The warrants entitle the holder to subscribe for one new share in the Company, with a term of three years. The subscription price upon exercise of the warrants for subscription of shares in both incentive programs amounts to SEK 7.94.

Total dilution for Incentive Program 2019/2022 C and Incentive Program 2019/2022 D as well as Incentive Program 2021/2024 A and Incentive Program 2021/2024 B correspond to approximately 3.1 percent. Total dilution for Incentive Program 2022/2025 B, as now proposed, together with the outstanding incentive programs and Incentive Program 2022/2025 A proposed by Major Shareholders in accordance with separate proposal, correspond to approximately 6.9 percent. The calculations are based on the maximum number of shares and votes which may be issued, divided by the total number of shares and votes after such issues, based on the total number of outstanding shares and votes per the date of this proposal.

6. Majority requirements

Valid resolution in accordance with items 14 a) and b) above requires the support of shareholders representing at least nine-tenths (9/10) of the votes cast as well as of all shares represented at the general meeting.

Item 15. Resolution regarding authorization for the board of directors to resolve on new issue of shares and issue of warrants and/or convertibles

The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting resolves to authorize the board of directors to, on one or more occasions for the period until the next annual general meeting, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, resolve on issue of shares, warrants and/or convertibles for cash payment and/or with provision of non-cash consideration or set-off or otherwise with a condition.

The purpose of the authorization and the reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to facilitate raising of capital for expansion through corporate acquisitions or acquisitions of business assets, for the Company’s business as well as adjustment of the Company’s capital and/or ownership structure. Issues made with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights shall be made on market terms.

For issues carried out by virtue of this authorization, neither the share capital nor the number of shares to be issued, or which may be issued upon exercise of issued warrants and/or convertibles, shall generate a dilution exceeding 10 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 the authorization is exercised for the first time.

The board of directors as well as the CEO are authorized to make minor adjustments in the resolution that may prove to be required in connection with the registration thereof at the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

Valid resolution in accordance with the present proposal requires the support of shareholders representing at least two-thirds (2/3) of the votes cast as well as of all shares represented at the general meeting.

Resolutions proposed by Major Shareholders

Item 13. Resolution on implementation of Incentive Program 2022/2025 A by a) issue of warrants to the Company and b) approval of transfer of warrants to certain elected board members

It is proposed that the annual general meeting resolves to implement a long-term incentive program (”Incentive Program 2022/2025 A”) for certain board members (the “Board members”). The proposal to implement an incentive program has been presented, since the Major Shareholders consider it essential and in interest of all shareholders to create even greater involvement for the Board members in the Company in regards of the Company’s development.

In the light of the above, shareholders together representing approximately 36.6 percent of the shares and votes in the Company (the “Major Shareholders”) propose that the general meeting resolves to implement Incentive Program 2022/2025 A and resolves to issue warrants in accordance with the following and that the general meeting resolves on approval of transfer of the warrants.

The maximum number of new shares will correspond to not more than 70,000 considering the proposal for resolution on reverse share split under item 12 above, corresponding to a dilution of approximately 1.1 percent, provided that all issued warrants are acquired by the Board members and all acquired warrants are fully exercised. The calculation is based on the maximum number of shares and votes that can be issued divided by the total number of shares and votes after such an issue, based on the total number of shares in the Company as of the date of this proposal.

A. Issue of warrants to the Company

The issue of warrants, which include not more than 70,000 warrants of series 2022/2025 A, considering the proposal for resolution on reverse share split under item 12 above, entails, upon full exercise of the warrants, that the Company’s share capital will increase by not more than SEK 350,000.03 (based on the quota value after the reverse share split and that no re-calculation has been made), in accordance with the following terms and conditions.

1. The right to subscribe for warrants shall, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, belong to the Company who shall transfer the warrants to the Board members according to item B below.

    2. The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to implement an incentive program whereby the Board members, through their own investment, shall take part in and aim towards a positive value development of the Company during the entire period which the proposed incentive program include, and that the Company shall be able to retain a competent and committed board.

      3. The warrants are issued to the Company without consideration.

        4. Subscription of the warrants shall be carried out by the Company up to and including 30 June 2022.

          5. Subscription of shares through exercise of the warrants shall be made during the period from 9 July 2025 up to and including 9 October 2025, considering the at each time applicable insider legislation.

            6. Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) share in the Company to an exercise price corresponding to 130 percent of the volume-weighted average of the subscription prices quoted from 20 June 2022 up to and including 1 July 2022 (as quoted on Nasdaq First North Growth Market where the Company’s shares are listed) for shares in the Company (however not lower than the quota value of the shares). Day without price quotation shall not be included in the calculation. Potential share premium shall be allocated to the free share premium reserve.

              7. Warrants held by the Company and which have not been transferred in accordance with item B below, may be cancelled by the Company following a resolution by the Company’s board of directors. Cancellation must be reported to the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

                8. In order to fulfil the obligations under Incentive Program 2022/2025 A the Major Shareholders propose that the general meeting approves that the Company may dispose of and transfer the warrants to the Board members in accordance with item B below.

                  9. The new shares issued following subscription of shares through the exercise of the warrants shall entitle right to dividend for the first time on the record date for dividend closest after the new shares have been registered by the Swedish Companies Registration Office and registered in the register of shareholders maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB.

                    10. Customary re-calculation terms shall apply for the warrants.

                    If the proposal for reverse share split under item 12 above is not implemented, the maximum number of warrants that may be issued shall correspond to 700,000 with the corresponding number of additional shares to be issued through exercise of the warrants.

                    The board of directors as well as the CEO are authorized to make minor adjustments in the resolution that may prove to be required in connection with the registration thereof at the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

                    B. Approval of transfer of warrants to the Participants

                    1. The right of acquisition

                    The right to acquire warrants accrues to certain elected board members and require that the Board members enter into a post-sale purchase right agreement etc. with the Company. Otherwise, the warrants are freely transferable. The following distribution applies for the allotment of warrants for the Board members.

























                    Board members Maximum number of warrants
                    Fredrik Burvall 17,500 warrants
                    Jari Piiponniemi 17,500 warrants
                    Lisa Gunnarsson 17,500 warrants
                    Errol Koolmeister 17,500 warrants

                    Allotment requires both that acquisition of warrants is legally possible and that it can be made to reasonable administrative and financial efforts.

                    The Company’s other board members are not covered by Incentive Program 2022/2025 A.

                    2. Notification period

                    Notification of acquisition of warrants shall be made during the period from 4 July 2022 up and until 8 July 2022.

                    3. Notification and allotment

                    The individuals entitled to acquire warrants shall apply for acquisition of warrants in lots either equivalent to the maximum number of warrants that are offered or reduced by lots of 100 warrants. Allotment shall be made in full lots of 100 warrants.

                    4. Price and payment etc.

                    The warrants shall be transferred at market terms to a price established by assessed market value for the warrants applying the Black & Scholes valuation model (the “Warrant Premium”) calculated by an independent valuation institute. The Warrant Premium is established on the day of transfer of warrants from the Company to the Board members.

                    The allotted warrants shall be paid for in cash in connection with the acquisition of the warrants.

                    5. Terms and conditions for allotment etc.

                    Since the warrants will be acquired by the Board members to assessed market value, no performance conditions will apply for allotment or the right to retain or exercise the warrants. However, as mentioned, the right to acquire warrants is conditional upon that the Board members enter into an agreement regarding the post-sale purchase right etc. with the Company.

                    C. Further information regarding the issue and the transfer etc.

                    1. Dilution

                    Upon full exercise of all warrants in Incentive Program 2022/2025 A up to 70,000 shares (with reservation for any re-calculation and considering the proposal for resolution under item 12 above) may be issued, which corresponds to a dilution of approximately 1.1 percent. The calculation is based on the maximum number of shares and votes which may be issued divided with the total number of shares and votes after such issue, based on the total number of outstanding shares and votes in the Company as of the date of this proposal. Upon full exercise of the warrants, the Company’s share capital will increase by SEK 350,000.03 based on the quota value after the reverse share split in accordance with the proposal for resolution under item 12 above.

                    Upon full exercise of the warrants under Incentive Program 2022/2025 A under this proposal, and full exercise of all 210,000 warrants under Incentive Program 2022/2025 B for the group management, other executives and key employees proposed by the board of directors under a separate proposal for resolution to the annual general meeting, up to 280,000 shares (with reservation for any re-calculation and considering the proposal for resolution on reverse share split under item 12 above) may be issued, which corresponds to a dilution of approximately 4.1 percent.

                    The dilution calculations above is based on the maximum number of shares and votes which can be issued divided with the total number of shares and votes after such issue, based on the total number of outstanding shares and votes of the Company as of the date of this proposal.

                    2. Calculation of the market value

                    According to a preliminary valuation made by an independent valuation institute for the statement of this proposal, the Warrant Premium per warrant is estimated to SEK 14.70, assuming (i) that the volume-weighted average price paid during the period from and including 20 June 2022 up to and including 1 July 2022 (according to the official price list on Nasdaq First North Growth Market, where the Company’s shares are listed) for a share in the Company will amount to SEK 65, (ii) that the subscription price per share upon exercise for warrants amounts to SEK 84.50, (iii) that the warrants are transferred to the Board members around 4 July 2022, (iv) an assessed future volatility during the term of the warrants corresponding to 43 percent, (v) an assessed risk-free interest during the term of the warrants corresponding to 1 percent and (vi) that no dividend will be paid during the term of the warrants. The Option Premium is calculated considering that the proposal for resolution on reverse share split under item 12 above is implemented but not considering the proposal for dividend under item 8 b) above.

                    3. Costs for the Company and effect on key figures etc.

                    The incentive program is expected to have a marginal effect on the Company’s earnings per share. Given that the warrants shall be transferred to a price corresponding to the market price, the Company’s assessment is that no particular social security costs will arise for the Company due to the Incentive Program 2022/2025 A.

                    The total costs, including other expenses for Incentive Program 2022/20225 A related to fees to external advisors, valuation, own work and administration of the program, are estimated to amount to approximately SEK 100,000 during the term of the incentive program.

                    4. Preparation of the matter

                    The principles of Incentive Program 2022/2025 A have been prepared by the Major Shareholders in consultation with external advisors.

                    5. Outstanding Programs and dilution

                    The Company currently has four outstanding share-based incentive programs, Incentive Program 2019/2022 C and Incentive Program 2019/2022 D and Incentive Program 2021/2024 A and Incentive Program 2021/2024 B.

                    Incentive Program 2019/2022 C and Incentive Program 2019/2022 D was resolved at the extraordinary general meeting on 13 August 2019. Incentive Program 2019/2022 C was addressed to certain members of the board of directors and consist of 240,000 warrants and Incentive Program 2019/2022 D was addressed to current and future members of the group management and key employees and consists of 420,000 warrants. The warrants entitle the holder to subscribe for one new share in the Company, with a term of three years. The subscription price upon exercise of the warrants for subscription of shares in the two incentive programs amounts to SEK 11.47.

                    Incentive Program 2021/2024 A and Incentive Program 2021/2024 B was resolved at the annual general meeting on 18 May 2021. Incentive Program 2021/2024 A was addressed to certain members of the board of directors and consist of 300,000 warrants and Incentive Program 2021/2024 B was addressed to current and future members of the group management, other executives and key employees and consists of 1,150,000 warrants. The warrants entitle the holder to subscribe for one new share in the Company, with a term of three years. The subscription price upon exercise of the warrants for subscription of shares in both incentive programs amounts to SEK 7.94.

                    Total dilution for Incentive Program 2019/2022 C and Incentive Program 2019/2022 D as well as Incentive Program 2021/2024 A and Incentive Program 2021/2024 B correspond to approximately 3.1 percent. Total dilution for the Incentive Program 2022/2025 A, as now proposed, together with the outstanding incentive programs and Incentive Program 2022/2025 B proposed by the board of directors in accordance with a separate proposal, correspond to approximately 6.9 percent. The calculations are based on the maximum number of shares and votes which may be issued, divided by the total number of shares and votes of the Company after such issues, based on the total number of outstanding shares and votes as of the date of this proposal.

                    6. Majority requirements

                    Valid resolution in accordance with items 13 a) and b) above requires the support of shareholders representing at least nine-tenths (9/10) of the votes cast as well as of all shares represented at the general meeting.
