Resolution to approve new issue of shares in the subsidiary Samfunnsbygg AS
The AGM resolved to approve the resolution previously adopted by the AGM of the subsidiary Hemfosa Samfunnsbygg AS on July 4 2016 regarding a new issue of shares in Samfunnsbygg AS, whereby Hemfosa Fastigheter subscribed for 1,619,159 shares and Immob Holding AS subscribed for 85,218 shares. Immob Holding AS is wholly-owned by Simon Venemyr Ottersland who is responsible for Hemfosa Fastigheter’s Norwegian business.
Resolution regarding authorisation to resolve upon new issue of ordinary shares
The AGM resolved to authorise the Board of Directors on one or more occasions during the period up to the following AGM, with or without deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption right, to decide on the issuance of new ordinary shares. The total number of ordinary shares that will be issuable pursuant to the authorisation may not exceed 10 percent of the total number of ordinary Hemfosa shares, at the time of exercising the authorisation. Such new ordinary shares shall be issued at a subscription price corresponding to market terms and payment can be made, except for payment in cash, by assets contributed in kind or by set-off.
Resolution regarding authorisation to resolve upon acquisitions and transfers of ordinary shares in the company
The AGM resolved to authorise the Board of Directors to, at on one or more occasions for the period until the end of the next AGM, acquire ordinary shares in the company so that, as a maximum, the company’s holding following the acquisition does not exceed 10 per cent of all the shares in Hemfosa at any time. Acquisitions may only be conducted at Nasdaq Stockholm and at a price that is within the registered range for the share price prevailing at any time, that is, the range between the highest ask price and the lowest bid price.
The AGM also resolved to authorise the Board of Directors to, at on one or more occasions for the period until the end of the next AGM, upon transfers of the company’s ordinary shares in accordance with the board’s proposal.
Resolution on warrants program including issue and transfer of warrants and resolution regarding the guidelines for remuneration to the senior executives
The AGM resolved to approve a directed issue of a maximum of 1,450,000 warrants. The warrants shall be transferred to the employees within the group divided in different categories at a price (warrant premium) that will be determined based on an estimated market value of the warrants. The company will by means of a cash bonus subsidize up to 100 per cent of the participants premium. The bonus consists of two payments, each of 50 per cent, during the term of the warrant program, one after two years and one after four years. The total cost for the subsidy, based on assumptions of the value of the warrants as set out above, is calculated to amount to not more than SEK 6.4 million including social security contributions, for the entire term of the warrant program of five years.
Each warrant shall entitle the holder to subscribe for one ordinary share in Hemfosa during the period from 1 May 2022 up to and including 31 May 2022 and from 1 August 2022 up to and including 31 August 2022. The subscription price for each share shall be equal to 115 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq Stockholm’s official price list for the ordinary share during the period 2 May 2017 up to and including 15 May 2017.
The proposed issue of warrants entails a total dilution of a maximum of approximately 0.85 per cent of the total number of shares and 0.90 per cent of the total number of votes in the company after full subscription of all warrants.
The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights are to, through the warrant program, establish a reward system that is competitive within all markets that the company operates within, that can function as a guideline for the company’s management in the work with the company’s strategy and that, in addition to function as focus-enhancing for the company’s employees, also provides the company’s employees with increased opportunity to participate in the successes of the company.
Furthermore, the AGM resolved on guidelines for remuneration of the company’s senior executives in accordance with the Board’s proposal.
