Election of the chairman of the meeting (item 2)
The Board of Directors proposes that Rikard Lindahl, member of the Swedish Bar Association, Advokatfirman Vinge, is elected chairman of the meeting.
Resolution on distribution of all shares in Amasten Fastighets AB (publ) (item 7)
On 27 October 2022, it was announced that the Board of Directors of Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget i Norden AB (publ) (”SBB”) has decided to evaluate the feasibility of forming a new stand-alone company focused on residential properties.
The Board of Directors proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting resolves that all SBB’s shares in the subsidiary Amasten Fastighets AB (publ), Reg. No. 556580-2526 (the ”Company”), including the underlying group, are distributed to SBB’s Class A and Class B shareholders, whereby ten (10) shares of ordinary Class A or ordinary Class B in SBB entitle to one (1) share in the Company. If a shareholder’s shareholding of Class A and/or Class B shares in SBB is not evenly dividable by ten (10), the fractions of shares, which the shareholder’s shareholding in SBB otherwise would entitle to, will be combined with all other shareholders’ fractions of shares into whole shares in the Company, which will be sold, when possible, on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market through Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (publ). The proceeds from such sale, free of any commissions, will then be paid to such shareholders through the Euroclear system on a pro rata basis.
The Board of Directors further proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting authorizes the Board of Directors to determine the record date for the right to receive shares in the Company. As previously announced, the intention is to list the shares in the Company on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market in the first quarter of 2023.
The value of the distribution of the shares in the Company is determined based on the book value at the time of the distribution of the shares to SBB’s Class A and Class B shareholders, applying current accounting principles. SBB estimates the book value at the time of the distribution to SEK 11,931,086,412, which is the total value proposed to be distributed.
Unrestricted equity per 31 December 2021 amounted to SEK 40,730,941,447. At the Annual General Meeting on 27 April 2022, it was resolved on a dividend to the shareholders amounting to SEK 2,307,199,115, and on a grant of SEK 50,000,000 to the UNHCR. The remaining disposable amount according to Chapter 17 Section 3 of the Swedish Companies Act following the resolutions on the Annual General Meeting is SEK 38,373,742,332.
An information brochure with further information regarding the distribution, the Company and SBB’s operations following the distribution will be published on or around 7 December 2022.
