Item 19 - Resolution to authorise the board of directors to resolve to repurchase and transfer own shares

The board of directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorises the board of directors to, up until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or several occasions, resolve to purchase own shares so that the company's holding, at any given time, does not exceed 10 percent of the total number of shares in the company, including such shares that the company has acquired to be delivered to participants in the company's incentive program. The shares shall be purchased on Nasdaq Stockholm and may only be acquired to a price per share within the applicable share price range, i.e. the range between the highest purchase price and the lowest selling price.

The board of directors also proposes that the Meeting authorises the board of directors, to, up until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or several occasions, resolve to transfer (sell) own shares. Transfers may be carried out on Nasdaq Stockholm at a price within the applicable price range, i.e. the range between the highest purchase price and the lowest selling price. Transfers may also be made in other ways, with or without preferential rights for the shareholders, against cash payment or against payment through set-off or in kind, or on other conditions. Upon such transfers outside Nasdaq Stockholm, the price shall be established so that it is not below market terms. However, a standard discount to the stock market price may be applied, in line with market practice. Transfers of own shares may be made in a number which does not exceed such number of shares that is held by the company at the time of the board of directors' resolution regarding the transfer.

The purpose of the authorisations above is to give the board of directors an increased flexibility with regard to the company's capital structure as well as to enable acquisitions of companies and business operations where payment is made with own shares.

The CEO shall be authorised to make such minor adjustments to this resolution that may be necessary in connection with the registration thereof.

Item 20 - Resolution to authorise the board of directors to resolve on share issues

The board of directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorises the board of directors to, up until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or several occasions, resolve to increase the company's share capital by way of share issue to such an extent that it corresponds to a dilution of the number of outstanding shares when the board of directors exercises the issuance authorisation for the first time corresponding to maximum 10 percent after full exercise of the hereby proposed authorisation.

New share issues may be made with or without deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights and with or without provisions for contribution in kind, set-off or other conditions. The purpose of the authorisation is to enable acquisitions of companies, businesses or parts thereof. Should the board of directors resolve on a share issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, the reason for such deviation must be to provide the company with new owners in connection with an acquisition, or, as an alternative, to procure capital for such acquisition. Upon such deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, the share issue shall be made to market terms and conditions.

The CEO shall be authorised to make such minor adjustments to this resolution that may be necessary in connection with the registration thereof.

Item 21 - Resolution on long-term incentive program to senior executives and key employees in the form of warrants

The board of directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to issue not more than 435,000 warrants to a subsidiary of the company for subsequent transfer within the scope of a long-term incentive program to senior executives and key employees.

The proposed incentive program is a three-year program, primarily in line with the incentive programs adopted in connection with the Extraordinary General Meeting in 2017 and with the Annual General Meetings in 2018, 2019, 2021, 2022 and 2023.

In total, the incentive program comprises a maximum of 12 individuals. The incentive program entails that senior executives and key employees, who have entered into an agreement with the company stipulating, among other things, a pre-emption right for the company, are offered to acquire warrants at market value, calculated in accordance with the Black-Scholes valuation formulae.

Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one new share in Ambea. The warrants have an exercise price per share corresponding to 110 percent of the average volume weighted price of the company' share during the period of five trading days falling immediately before the offer for subscription of the warrants (the "Offer day"), however as a minimum of the quota value of the share. If, at the time of subscription of shares, the closing price, on the trading day immediately preceding the subscription, exceeds 200 percent of the exercise price during the period of five trading days falling immediately before the Offer day, the exercise price shall be increased by the above-mentioned price to the extent that it exceeds 200 percent of the exercise price.

Each warrant entitles to subscription of one new share in Ambea during two periods, both during two weeks from the day of publication of the interim report for the period 1 January - 31 March 2027 as well as during two weeks from the day of publication of the interim report for the period 1 January - 30 September 2027. However, subscription may not take place later than on 30 November 2027.

The price per warrant upon transfer to the participants shall be established by the company, or by an independent appraiser or auditor firm, as soon as possible after the exercise price has been established and shall correspond to the market value of the warrant calculated in accordance with the Black-Scholes valuation formulae. Ambea will subsidize the participants' acquisition of warrants in accordance with the following. The company will pay an amount corresponding to 50 percent of the price per warrant in connection with the allotment of warrants to the participants. A subsidy corresponding to the remaining 50 percent of the price per warrant will be paid one week prior to the day of the publication of Ambea's interim report for the period 1 January - 31 March 2027, provided that the participant still is employed by Ambea and has not resigned or been served with notice of termination of employment from the employer. Ambea will cover the customary social security contributions payable on the subsidy. Any other costs by reason of the subsidy, such as pension premiums, shall be borne by the participant whereby such costs will be deducted from the subsidy paid to the participant.

The complete terms and conditions for the warrants have been resolved by the board of directors and are available to the shareholders in accordance with the below.

The company has, in connection with the transfer of the warrants to the participants in the program, and with certain exceptions, reserved a pre-emption right regarding the warrants if the participant's employment or engagement within the group is terminated or if the participant wishes to transfer its warrants prior to the exercise period.

Allocation of warrants 

Not more than 12 senior executives and key employees in the Ambea group shall, provided that they have entered into an agreement with the company stipulating, among other things, a pre-emption right for the company, be entitled to acquire warrants up to the maximum number of warrants as set out below. To be offered to participate it is furhter required, for participants who have been invited to participate in Ambea's warrant program in the preceding year or two preceding years, that such participant has invested during such year or years in accordance with the terms of the program applicable at the time.

Position Guaranteed number of warrants Minimum number of warrants
per participant of each per participant of each
category category
CEO 70,000 18,000
CFO 50,000 12,500
Management group 1 35,000 9,000
(approx. 5
individuals)
Management group 2 28,000 7,000
(approx. 5
individuals)

Each participant may subscribe for its guaranteed number of warrants in accordance with the allocation as set out above. Each participant may subscribe for a lower number of warrants than the guaranteed number of warrants according to the allocation above, but not less than 33 percent of each participant's guaranteed number of warrants. Each participant may apply for over-allotment corresponding to 175 percent of the participant's guaranteed number of warrants, which constitutes each participant's maximum number of warrants to be subscribed. Over-allotment of warrants is first made to the CEO and is then distributed pro rata based on subscription between the other participants.

Effect on important key ratios, costs for the program and dilution

The cost for the incentive program is expected to have a marginal impact on Ambea's key ratios. The total cost for the incentive program, including the subsidy, is estimated not to exceed MSEK 1 during the term of the program. The total cost for the subsidy is calculated to amount to up to MSEK 2 including social security contributions for the entire term of the program. The stated cost is based the below preliminary price of the warrants and presumes that all participants are still employed by Ambea (including have not given notice or received notice of termination of employment) at the payment of the subsidy in connection with the first exercise period.

According to a preliminary valuation, the market value of the warrants corresponds to approximately SEK 8.30 per warrant (assuming a price of the company's shares of approximately SEK 59.70 per share, an exercise price of approximately SEK 65.70 per share, a risk-free interest rate of approximately 2.52 percent and a volatility of 28.5 percent), calculated according to the Black-Scholes valuation formulae. In addition to what is stated above, the cost for the program has been calculated on the basis that the program comprises a maximum of 12 participants and that these participants acquire the maximum allowable allocation as stated above.

Based on the number of shares in Ambea as of the date of the notice convening the Annual General Meeting, the maximum dilution as a result of the warrant program may amount to 0.5 percent, subject to any recalculation according to the warrant terms. If Ambea's other outstanding share-related incentive programs are included in the calculation, the maximum dilution amounts to approximately 1.7 percent.

The rationale for the incentive program 

The rationale for the incentive program is to create opportunities to motivate and retain competent employees in the Ambea group as well as to align the targets of the participants with those of the company. The incentive program has been established as it is deemed desirable for senior executives and key employees within the Ambea group to be shareholders of the company. The board of directors considers that the implementation of the incentive program as described above is in the favour of the group and the shareholders in the company.

Preparation of the proposal 

The incentive program has been prepared by the board of directors and its remuneration committee together with advisors, and has been reviewed at meetings of the board of directors in the beginning of 2024.

Other incentive programs

For a description of Ambea's other share-related incentive programs, reference is made to the annual report for 2023 and the board's remuneration report for 2023.
