Principal proposals for resolutions
Resolution on authorisation for the board of directors to issue shares, convertible instruments and warrants (item 7)
The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to authorise the board of directors to, until the next annual general meeting, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, on one or several occasions resolve to issue shares, convertible instruments and/or warrants. The increase of the share capital, which entails issuance, conversion or subscription for new shares, may – where it entails a deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights – correspond to a dilution of a maximum of 10 percent of the share capital at the time of the first use of the authorisation to issue shares, convertible instruments and/or warrants. Payment may be made in cash and/or with a condition to pay in kind or by way of set-off, or other conditions. The authorisation shall primarily be used for the purpose of acquisitions or financing.
A valid resolution by the general meeting requires that shareholders holding not less than two-thirds of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the general meeting vote in favor of the proposal.
Resolution on employee stock option program including an issue of warrants and approval of transfers of warrants/shares (item 8)
The board of directors of Stillfront Group AB (publ), reg. no 556721-3078, (the “Company” and “Stillfront “) proposes that the general meeting resolves, in accordance with the below, to (A) adopt an employee stock option program for senior executives of Stillfront (the “Program”) and (B) issue warrants of series 2019/2023 and to approve transfers of warrants/shares to ensure delivery of shares under the employee stock options issued under the Program.
A) Proposal to resolve to adopt the Program
The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to issue employee stock options on the following terms:
- Not more than 200,000 employee stock options shall be issued (the “Stock Options”).
- The Stock Options shall be offered to approximately ten senior executives in the Company or its subsidiaries.
- The board of directors resolves on the final allotment of the Stock Options.
- The Stock Options shall be allotted free of charge.
- Provided that the participant is still employed by the group at the exercise of the Stock Options, each Stock Option entitles the employee an option right to acquire one (1) share in the Company during the period 15 December 2022 up to and including 15 December 2023. Acquisition is carried out through the exercise of warrants issued in accordance with item (B) below.
- The price for the shares at exercise shall be equal to the amount to be paid upon exercise of the warrants that are allotted to the holder upon exercise of the Stock Options.
- The amount of shares each Stock Option entitles subscription to and the price for the shares at exercise can be recalculated in the event of a bonus issue, new issue and in certain other cases entailing a recalculation in accordance with the terms and conditions of the proposed warrants of series 2019/2023 as set forth in item (B) below.
- The Stock Options may not be transferred or pledged.
- The board of directors is authorized to implement the Program and to draft and enter into agreements with the subscribers in accordance with the above terms.
- The board of directors shall be entitled to make adjustments to the terms and conditions of the Stock Options if significant changes in the group, or its markets, result in a situation where the decided terms and conditions for exercising the Stock Options are no longer appropriate.
B) Proposal to resolve to issue warrants and approval of transfers of warrants/shares
The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to issue warrants on the following terms:
- The Company shall issue not more than 200,000 warrants of series 2019/2023 (the “Warrants”).
- The right to subscribe for Warrants shall, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, belong to a wholly owned subsidiary to the Company.
- Over-subscription is not allowed.
- Subscription of the Warrants shall take place on a separate subscription list no later than 14 December 2019. The board of directors is entitled to prolong the subscription period. The Warrants shall be allotted to the subsidiary free of charge.
- Each Warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) new share in the Company during the period from and including 15 December 2022 up to and including 30 December 2023.
- The price for the shares at exercise shall be equal to 150 % of the average volume weighted share price for the Company’s share on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market during the period from and including 25 November 2019 until and including 9 December 2019. The price shall however not be lower than the quotient value of the share.
- Shares issued as a result of subscription will carry rights to dividends as of the first record date for dividends after the subscription is executed.
- The subscription price, as well as the number of shares which a Warrant entitles subscription for, can be recalculated in the event of a bonus issue, new issue and in certain other cases, as set out in the complete terms and conditions for the Warrants.
- The increase of the Company’s share capital will, upon exercise of the Warrants, amount to not more than SEK 140,000, subject to such increase that may occur due to recalculation of the subscription price and the number of shares which each Warrant entitles subscription for in the event of issues etcetera.
- The board of directors is authorised to make such minor adjustments in the general meeting’s resolutions as may be required in connection with the registration of the Warrants with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and Euroclear Sweden AB.
The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to approve the subsidiary’s transfer of warrants or shares, free of charge, to participants in the Program, in accordance with item A above, and that the subsidiary shall be entitled, in any other ways necessary, to distribute the Warrants to ensure delivery of shares under the Stock Options issued under the Program.
The reason for deviating from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to achieve optimum alignment of interests between the participants in the Program and the shareholders and to promote long-term ownership of shares.
Upon full subscription by virtue of the Warrants, a maximum of 200,000 new shares may be issued, corresponding to a dilution of approximately 0.75 per cent of the total number of shares and votes in the Company.
A valid resolution according to the above must be supported by shareholders holding not less than nine-tenths of both the votes cast as well as the shares represented at the general meeting.
Resolution to amend the Company’s articles of association (item 9)
The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to change the articles of association according to the following:
- The share capital shall be not less than SEK 18,437,617.10 and not more than SEK 73,750,468.40. The number of shares shall be not less than 26,339,453 and not more than 105,357,812.
- It shall no longer be possible to appoint deputy board members.
- Auditor/s and deputy auditor/s shall be appointed yearly
