Appointment of auditor (item 13)
It is proposed that MAZARS SET Revisionsbyrå AB is re-appointed as the Company’s auditor. The auditing firm has declared that if the general meeting resolves in accordance with the proposal, Michael Olsson will be re-appointed as auditor in charge. The nomination committee’s proposal corresponds to the recommendation of the board of directors (the board of directors has not appointed an audit committee).
Resolution on nomination committee (item 14)
The nomination committee proposes that the general meeting resolves that the nomination committee shall be appointed in accordance with the following principles.
The chairman of the board of directors shall, based on the shareholding according to Euroclear Sweden AB as of the last business day in September 2017, contact the three largest shareholders, who shall be entitled to appoint one member each of the nomination committee. If any of the three largest shareholders declines to appoint a member of the nomination committee, the next largest shareholder shall be offered the opportunity to appoint a member of the nomination committee. The nomination committee may also decide that the chairman of the board of directors shall be a member of the nomination committee. The managing director or another member of the Company’s senior management shall not be a member of the nomination committee. The chairman of the board of directors shall convene the nomination committee to its first meeting. A representative of a shareholder shall be appointed the chairman of the nomination committee. Neither the chairman of the board of directors nor another director of the board shall serve as chairman of the nomination committee. The term of the nomination committee expires when a new nomination committee has been appointed.
If a shareholder, who is represented in the nomination committee, during the term of the nomination committee ceases to be one of the three largest shareholders, a representative appointed by that shareholder shall offer to vacate his or her office and the shareholder who has become one of the three largest shareholders shall be offered the opportunity to appoint a member of the nomination committee. Minor changes do not have to be considered. A shareholder who has appointed a representative in the nomination committee is entitled to remove such representative and appoint another representative. Changes in the nomination committee’s composition shall be published on the Company’s website without delay.
It is proposed that the nomination committee’s tasks shall be to prepare and draw up proposals regarding appointment of chairman of the annual general meeting, chairman of the board of directors and other directors of the board, remuneration to the chairman of the board of directors and the other directors of the board, appointment of auditor, remuneration to the auditors and principles for the appointment of nomination committee. No remuneration shall be paid to the nomination committee. The nomination committee shall, in connection with performing its tasks, forward certain information to the Company so that the Company can comply with applicable obligations to disclose information.
The composition of the nomination committee shall be announced no later than six months before the annual general meeting. In connection therewith, information shall also be provided on how shareholders can submit proposals to the nomination committee.
Resolution to authorise the board of directors to issue shares, convertible instruments and warrants (item 15)
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. The price per share shall be determined as an average of the market price during 30 days before the resolution of the issue of 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. The conditions shall be on market terms.
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.
Details of number of shares, votes and holding of own shares
The total amount of shares and votes in the Company at the time of issue of this notice was 5 983 775 shares. All shares carry equal voting rights. The Company does not hold any own shares.
The annual report, auditor’s report and complete proposals in accordance with above will be available at the Company (address as above) and on the Company’s webpage, www.stillfront.com, not less than three weeks before the general meeting. The aforementioned documents will be sent to those shareholders who so request and submit their postal address or e-mail address.
Shareholders’ right to request information
Shareholders are reminded of their right pursuant to chapter 7, section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act to request that the board of directors and managing director provide information at the general meeting in respect of any circumstances which may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda or any circumstances which may affect the assessment of the Company’s or a group company’s financial position. The obligation to provide information also applies to the Company’s relationship to other group companies. Information must be provided if it can take place without significant harm to the Company.
