It was further resolved, in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposal, that warrants that have been issued by Oncopeptides under Co-worker LTIP 2017 for the purpose of hedging Oncopeptides’ social security costs under Co-worker LTIP 2017 can be used under Co-worker LTIP 2018 to cover social security costs under Co-worker LTIP 2018.
- It was resolved, in accordance with the Nomination Committee’s proposal, to introduce a long term performance based incentive program for certain members of the Board of Directors (“Board LTIP 2018”). The program is share based and intended for main owner independent members of the Board of Directors. The program comprises a total of not more than 55,000 share awards and the number of share awards that shall be awarded to each participant shall correspond to a certain amount (SEK 1,350,000 to the Chairman and SEK 540,000 to each of the other main owner independent members of the Board of Directors) divided by the volume weighted average price of the Company’s share on Nasdaq Stockholm for the 30 trading days preceding the Annual General Meeting. The share awards are subject to performance vesting based on the development of the price of the Company’s share over the period from the date of the Annual General Meeting up until the annual general meeting 2021. Each vested share award entitles the holder to receive one share in the Company without any compensation being payable provided that the holder is still a Board member of the Company at the relevant times of vesting. It was further resolved, in accordance with the Nomination Committee’s proposal, to issue not more than 55 000 warrants in order to ensure delivery of shares under Board LTIP 2018.
- It was resolved, in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposal, to authorize the Board of Directors to, until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or more occasions, decide upon issuances of new shares, issuance of warrants and/or convertibles. New issues of shares and issues of warrants and/or convertibles may occur with or without preferential rights for shareholders of the Company and may be made either in cash and/or by way of set-off or contribution in kind or otherwise on terms. The number of shares issued under the authorisation, or the number of shares created in connection with exercise of warrants or conversion of convertibles, may not correspond to a dilution of more than 20 per cent of the total number of shares outstanding at the Annual General Meeting’s resolution on the proposed authorization, after full exercise of the authorization.
