The meeting also resolved to re-elect Öhrlings PricewaterhouseCoopers AB as auditor.
Nomination committee and remuneration guidelines
The meeting further resolved on nomination committee and remuneration guidelines for senior executives in accordance with the proposals set forth in the notice.
The meeting resolved to implement a new long-term incentive program for certain senior executives, key individuals and employees within the group, through the issue of not more than 1,610,526 warrants. Each warrant entitles to subscription for one new share in the company at a subscription price corresponding to 130 percent of the volume-weighted average share price during the five-day period preceding the allotment of warrants to each person participating in the program. Subscription for new shares based on the warrants shall be made during the period 1 June 2022 up to and including 31 August 2022.
Repurchase and transfer own shares
The meeting finally resolved to authorize the board of directors to, on one or several occasions, up and until the next annual general meeting, resolve on the repurchase and transfer of own shares. The total number of shares that may be re-purchased may not entail a treasury shareholding at any time exceeding 10 percent of the total number of shares in the company. The reason for the authorizations is to provide the board of directors with increased flexibility in the work with the company's capital structure and to enable the company to finance acquisitions with own shares.
