Major shareholders' proposals for resolutions regarding items 7-8 of 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 with respect to items 7-8 according to the above proposed agenda.
Item 7. Election of new board member and chairman
At the extraordinary general meeting on 21 July 2023, it was resolved that the board of directors of the Company shall consist of seven (7) board members without deputies. The meeting further resolved to elect Anders Gustafsson, Christos Stavropoulos, Gustav Westman and Mikael Lindblom as new board members and that Fredrik Burvall, Lisa Gunnarsson and Errol Koolmeister shall remain as board members for the period until the next annual general meeting with Fredrik Burvall as chairman of the board.
On 11 September 2023, Fredrik Burvall resolved to resign from the board of directors, creating a vacancy in the board of directors. The board of directors thereafter appointed Mikael Lindblom as acting chairman of the board.
Consequently, the Major Shareholders propose that Johan Rutgersson is elected as new board member and chairman of the board of the Company for the period until the end of the next annual general meeting, whereby the vacancy in the board of directors ceases.
Short description of Johan Rutgersson
Education: Master's degree in Business Administration from Uppsala University.
Other assignments: Johan is chairman of the board of Fedelta Finance AB, Familjekortet Sverige AB and board member and deputy in several public and private companies, including Litium AB.
Work experience: Johan has a long-standing background in the financial sector with several assignments such as CEO, board member and chairman.
Own and related parties’ holdings: 0 shares.
Independence: Independent in relation to the Company, the Company’s management, and the Company’s major shareholders.
Item 8. Determination of remuneration to new member of the board and chairman
Major Shareholders propose that Johan Rutgersson shall receive SEK 480,000 on an annual basis, which means an increase of the fee by SEK 230,000 per year compared to the decision made at the annual general meeting 2023 regarding the fee to the chairman of the board of directors of the Company. The proposed fee is considered market-based compared to the remuneration level in similar companies. The fee shall be adjusted pro rata based on the time from the election as board member and chairman for the period until the end of the next annual general meeting.
Shareholders’ right to request information
According to Chapter 7, Section 32 of the Companies Act, the board of directors and the CEO shall, if any shareholder so requests and the board of directors considers that this can be done without material damage to the Company, provide information on circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda.
Major Shareholders’ 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 so request and state their postal address.
