The agenda for the meeting is the following:
The issues to be handled according to the Article 15 of the Articles of Association.
Authorization of the Board of Directors to decide on share issues and /or convertible bond issues
The Board has decided to move at the meeting that it be authorized to raise the company’s share capital with one or several share issues and/or convertible bond issues so that in the related subscriptions of new shares a maximum increase in the share capital and voting rights totalling EUR 1,754,083 or less, which corresponds one fifth of the officially registered share capital and voting rights authorized by the shareholders, could be executed.
The authorization would allow the company to circumvent normal subscription right priorities related to private placements and/or convertible bonds, under the condition that there are good financial reasons for such circumvention, and to execute new share issues so that compensation for subscribed shares can be provided in the form of capital assets, or under certain conditions, by converting receivables and/or other liabilites into compensation. The Board may use the authorization to strengthen the company’s capital structure, to finance acquisitions or similar actions and arrangements. The Board may not make the decision in favour of anyone belonging to the inner circle of the Company.
The authorization includes the right to decide on the persons and entities entitled to subscription, the subscription prices and terms, terms of the convertible bond issue and other terms and circumtances related to subscription issue and/or convertible bond issue.
The authorization will remain in force for one year from the date of the shareholders’ meeting.
