The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting authorises the board of directors to establish a long-term incentive program for certain of the company's key employees and members of executive management.

The reasons for the implementation of the incentive program are to be able to create possibilities for the company to retain key employees by offering a long-term ownership engagement. Such ownership engagement is expected to contribute to an increased alignment of interests between the participating key employees and the shareholders, and promote a long-term commitment to the company's development.

As part of the long-term incentive program, the board of directors proposes that the general meeting authorises the board of directors in one or more issues to issue up to 2,000,000 warrants to certain of the company's key employees and members of the executive management granting them a right to subscribe for shares of up to a total nominal amount of EUR 20,000 against payment in cash without pre-emption rights for the company's shareholders, and to adopt a resolution to carry out the required increase of the company's share capital.

The authorisation shall be valid in the period until the company's annual general meeting to be held in 2022, provided that the annual general meeting to be held in each of the years 2020 and 2021 in relation to the part of the allocation to be made to Other Key Employees (as defined in schedule 2) ratifies the decision to allow the board of directors to issue the remaining part of the warrants (absent such ratification at one of the mentioned annual general meetings, the remaining part of the authorization shall automatically lapse).

The board of directors is authorised to reuse or reissue any expired warrants that has not been duly exercised, provided that the reuse or reissuance observes the terms and limitations in time which is set out in the above authorisation. A reuse shall mean the access for the board of directors to allow another to take over a warrant that has already been issued, which subsequently lapsed. A reissuance shall mean the board of directors' access to issue new warrants as substitution for warrants that has already been issued but which has terminated.

The principle terms and conditions which shall apply to the issued warrants is enclosed as schedule 2. The board of directors is authorised to determine the detailed terms and conditions of the issued warrants and the distribution thereof in accordance with the principle terms and conditions set out in schedule 2.

The board of directors may determine any other terms relating to the issue of shares on the basis of the above authorisation, however, as provided under section 155(3)(4) of the Danish Companies Act the following shall apply:

  1. Partial payment of the subscription amount is not permitted.
  2. The new shares will be without pre-emption rights for existing shareholders, and the pre-emption rights relating to the new shares will not be restricted in respect of future capital increases.
  3. The transferability of the new shares will not be restricted, and the new shareholders will not be obligated to let their shares be redeemed.

  1. The new shares will be issued through VP Securities A/S and will be admitted to trading and official listing on Nasdaq Stockholm.
  2. The new shares will be issued in the name of the holder and will be negotiable instruments.


It is proposed, that the authorisation is inserted as a new section 5.5 of the articles of association and that schedule 2 to this notice is inserted as a new schedule 3 to the articles of association as laid out in the draft new articles of association, attached as schedule 3.

Re item 9b). Proposal to authorise the board of directors to increase the company's share capital without pre-emption rights for the existing shareholders

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting in the period until the annual general meeting to be held in 2020 authorises the board of directors to increase the company's share capital in the company without pre-emption rights for the existing shareholders of the company in one or more issues by up to a nominal amount of EUR 80,974.22, corresponding to a maximum dilution of 15.39% on a fully diluted basis (including new warrants issued pursuant to the proposal in item 9a on the agenda). The capital increase shall take place at market price and may be effected against cash payment, by contribution in kind or by conversion of debt.

For the issuance of shares on the basis of the above authorisation the following shall apply:

  1. Partial payment of the subscription amount is not permitted.
  2. The new shares will be without pre-emption rights for existing shareholders, and the pre-emption rights relating to the new shares will not be restricted in respect of future capital increases.

  4. The new shares will be issued through VP Securities A/S and will be admitted to trading and official listing on Nasdaq Stockholm.
  5. The new shares will be issued in the name of the holder and will be negotiable instruments.


It is proposed, that the authorisation to increase the share capital without pre-emption rights is inserted as a new section 4.1 of the articles of association as laid out in the draft new articles of association, attached as schedule 3. The purpose of the authorization is to make it possible for the company to (i) settle part of the purchase price related to the acquisition of Ribacka Group AB (reference is made to regulatory release 17/2018) through issuance of shares in the company, (ii) finance future acquisitions by way of payment in kind in whole or in part in shares in the company and (iii) make it possible to procure capital in the future.

Re item 9c).Proposal to authorize the board of directors to acquire treasury shares

It is proposed to authorise the board of directors to pass a resolution on acquisition of treasury shares on the following terms:

  1. The company may acquire up to nominal EUR 40,487.11 treasury shares in the period until the annual general meeting to be held in 2020.
  1. Acquisitions of treasury shares should be made on Nasdaq Stockholm (the "Exchange") at a price per share within the band of prices (spread) applying on the Exchange, or to the extent the company assigns a member of the Exchange to accumulate a certain amount of the company's shares by proprietary trading during a certain time period on the day of delivery pay the volume weighted average price for the market as a whole for such period of time, even if the volume weighted average price falls outside the range of prices on the day of delivery.

All acquisitions of treasury shares shall be made in accordance with the applicable rules at the Exchange.

It is proposed that the authorisation to the board of directors to acquire treasury shares is inserted as a new section 4.2 of the articles of association as laid out in the draft new articles of association, enclosed as schedule 3.

The purpose of the authorization is to ensure flexibility in relation to the realization of the company's acquisition strategy.

Re item 9d). Proposal to amend terms of issued warrants

The board of directors proposes to change the terms of the warrants issued to members of the board of directors and the company's key employees on 25 August 2017, 22 March 2018 and 11 April 2018. Reference is made to items 4.1-4.4 and schedules 1 and 2 of the current articles of association.

Following the share split resolved by the company's annual general meeting on 26 April 2018, each existing warrant entitles the holder to subscription of 54 shares at a subscription price of DKK 700.

To simplify the handling of the warrants, the board of directors proposes that the terms of the existing warrants are amended so each warrant that today entitles the holder to subscription of 54 shares is replaced with 54 warrants which each entitles the holder to subscribe for one share with a nominal value of EUR 0.01 in the company. Furthermore, the exercise price per share of the issued warrants is changed from DKK 700 to DKK 12.96 (rounded).

It is noted that the amendments to the warrant terms are cost neutral for the company, its shareholders and the warrant holders.

It is proposed that changes to the warrant terms are adopted in the articles of associations, including schedules 1 and 2, as laid out in the draft new articles of association, attached as schedule 3.

Re item 10. Authorisation to the chairman of the meeting

The board of directors proposes to authorise the chairman of the general meeting - with right of substitution - to file the resolutions passed with the Danish Business Authority and to make such amendments to the resolutions passed by the general meeting which the Danish Business Authority might demand as a condition to register the resolutions passed by general meeting.
