The bonus shares shall be distributed amongst holders of common shares of series A in relation to the number of common shares of series A owned before by such shareholders.

New paragraph introduced
Proposed wording
5.2 Profit distribution on common shares All common shares shall have the right to dividend without preferential rights in relation to each other. If dividend on the common shares is declared the following shall apply:

  • Common share of series A is entitled to dividend.
  • Common share of series D is entitled to five (5) times the total dividend on common share of series A, however, not more than SEK five (5.00) per share and year.

If dividend on common share of series D is lower than SEK five (5.00), the dividend cap of SEK five (5.00) shall be increased so that the amount corresponding to the difference between the dividend cap of SEK five (5.00) and the actual amount paid per year may be distributed at a later date if sufficient dividend on the common shares is resolved, upon which the dividend cap shall return to SEK five (5.00). Disbursement of dividend relating to common shares of series A shall be made in a single payment, in two (2) equal partial payments, in which case the record dates for payment of dividend shall be the last Business Day (as defined below) in April and October or in four (4) equal partial payments, in which case the record dates for payment of dividend shall be the last Business Day in April, July, October and January. Disbursement of any dividend relating to common shares of series D shall be made in four (4) equal partial payments.

In addition to the above-mentioned proposed amendments to § 5 of the articles of association, certain consequential changes are also proposed by reason of the above, such as new paragraph numbering in § 5 given the new paragraph 5.2 and that when references are made to “common shares” it is specified throughout the document if reference is made to common shares of class A or D.

For a valid resolution pursuant to this item 7, the resolution requires support by shareholders representing at least two-thirds (2/3) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the General Meeting.

Item 8, resolution on authorisation for the board of directors to issue new common shares of series D
The board of directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to authorise the board of directors to, on one or more occasions before the annual general meeting 2020, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, resolve on increasing the Company’s share capital by new issues of in total not more than 16,000,000 ordinary shares of series D against payment in cash, with provisions of payment in kind or set-off of claims or other conditions.

The purpose of the authorisation and the possibility to deviate from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to enable the Company to, in accordance with an accelerated timetable, raise funds as part of the Company’s efforts to increase the Company’s credit rating and to continue its growth, inter alia, through acquisitions and investments in existing portfolio.

If issue of shares is carried out with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, the issue shall be made at market terms and conditions, taking into account any discount on market terms.

The board of directors, or a person appointed by the board of directors, is authorised to make such minor adjustments to the resolution as may be required in connection with registration of the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

For a valid resolution pursuant to this item 8, the resolution requires support by shareholders representing at least two-thirds (2/3) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the General Meeting.
