The nominating committee, consisting of Jan Svensson, (Chairman, Förvaltnings AB Wasatornet including related parties), Eric Douglas (Wasatornet Holding AB including related parties), Fredrik Palmstierna (own holding including related parties) and Anders Oscarsson (AMF) has made the following proposal:

  • That Joakim Rosengren be elected Chairman of the Annual General Meeting (point 2).

The proposed Board members are presented in more detail on the company website, www.latour.se. Joakim Rosengren has declined re-election (point 11).
  • Furthermore the nominating committee proposes that the Annual General Meeting elect Johan Nordström Chairman of the Board (point 11).
  • Re-election of the auditing firm Ernst & Young AB until the end of the Annual General Meeting 2025. In the event that Ernst & Young AB is re-elected, the Nomination Committee has been informed that the authorized public accountant Andreas Mast will be appointed as the principal auditor (point 12).

Proposals from the Board of Directors

Point 9 b, allocations of profit in accordance with the adopted balance sheet and record date for dividend
The Board of Directors has proposed that the funds available at the Annual General Meeting of SEK 11,813 million to be allocated so that SEK 4.10 per share, a total of SEK 2,621 million, is paid to the shareholders as dividend and that the company's remaining unrestricted equity of SEK 9,192 million, is to be carried forward.

The record date for the right to receive a dividend is proposed to be Thursday 16 May, 2024. If the Annual General Meeting approves the proposal it is estimated that Euroclear Sweden will execute this dividend on Tuesday 21 May 2024.

Point 14, presentation and approval of the Board of Director's remuneration report 2023
The Board of Directors has prepared a remuneration report for the financial year 2023 and proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to approve the report. The report is included in the Board's complete proposals on the company's website.

Point 15, proposal for guidelines for salary and other remuneration to senior executives within the Latour group
The Board of Directors proposes that the existing guidelines remain unchanged and apply for another four years, or until new guidelines are adopted by the General Meeting. The Board's proposed guidelines are presented in full on the company's website, www.latour.se.

Point 16, buy back and transfer of own shares
The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting authorises the board to, until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or several occasions, acquire its own shares. The company may acquire up to ten (10) per cent of the outstanding shares in the company. The total number of shares may consist of A shares or B shares, or a combination thereof.

The shares may be acquired through offers to all shareholders or through trading on the Nasdaq Stockholm. If purchased on the Nasdaq Stockholm the price will correspond to the market price at the time of the acquisition with a deviation that does not exceed the registered price interval on each occasion. The purpose of this acquisition is to adjust the company's capital structure, achieve added value for the shareholders as well as to finance acquisitions with shares and be able to meet the obligations of call option programs.

The Board of Directors is also authorised to, on one or several occasions, until the Annual General Meeting 2025, transfer its own shares owned by the company at the time of the Board of Directors' decision. The shares may be acquired through trading on the Nasdaq Stockholm at the registered price interval on each occasion. The transfer of shares acquired according to the above may take place outside of Nasdaq Stockholm with or without deviating from shareholders' preferential rights and with or without provisions of contribution or set-offs. The transfer of shares may in other words be used as payment in connection with acquisitions on terms in accordance with the Companies Act regulations regarding new share issue. This transfer may be for a price in money or the value of received asset which, for acquisitions, corresponds to the market price at the time of the transfer.

Point 17, transfer of own shares to participants in the company's call option program
In order to cover the company's obligations for the proposed call option program in point 18, including previous years' programs, the Board of Directors propose that the Annual General Meeting decides that the Latour class B shares owned by Latour and may be owned by Latour by acquisitions with support of the above authorisation according to point 16, can be transferred to the participants under the terms of the call option programs. The Board of Directors further proposes that the Annual General Meeting decides that a maximum of 1,000,000 class B shares may be transferred to participants under the call option program in accordance with point 18 below. The exercise price follows from the terms adopted when the call option program was established which was determined by an independent valuer following established valuation models.

Point 18, proposal for call option program for senior officers
The Board of Directors proposes the Annual General Meeting adopt a call option program for the CEO and senior officers, executive management in the business areas and employees at Latour's headquarters. The call option program will comprise a total of about 70 participants in the Latour Group.

The Annual General Meeting is proposed to authorise the Board of Directors to issue, until the next Annual General Meeting, call options for a further 1,000,000 class B shares maximum, corresponding to no more than 0.16 per cent of the total number of shares and 0.09 per cent of total number of votes. Of this, the CEO will be offered a maximum of 160,000 call options. If all outstanding call option programs in Latour are included in the calculation, the corresponding maximum dilution, at the time of the Annual General Meeting, amounts to approximately 0.47 per cent of the total number of shares and 0.28 percent of the total number of votes.

For more details of the company's existing call option program, please refer to the company's annual report for 2023 on the company's website, www.latour.se.

Until the next Annual General Meeting, the above participants will thus be given the opportunity to acquire call options for a maximum of 1,000,000 class B shares. The terms of the call options will be based on market terms following established models at the time of each issue. The option premium will be 10 per cent of the share price on the date of issue. The call options will have maximum four (4) years and three (3) months maturity from the date of issue and the subscription period will be 20 May 2028 - 30 June 2028. The exercise price will be determined by an independent valuer on each occasion, following by applying the Black & Scholes valuation model. To illustrate, a valuation according to the Black & Scholes valuation model will include the following variables, price per call option 10 per cent of the Latour share's average volume-weighted closing price during 5 trading days before the program's release, in this example SEK 28.34 per option based on the Latour share closing price on March 26, 283.40 SEK per share, maturity (4 years and 3 months), volatility (currently 22 per cent) and risk-free interest rate (currently 2.5 per cent). Taking into account the above parameters, the theoretical exercise price would currently amount to SEK 360.35 per share. The exercise price may not be less than the share price at the time the options are issued.

If the Annual General Meeting approves the board's proposal the company, with a deviation from shareholders' preferential rights, will transfer to the option holders up to 1,000,000 class B shares for the fixed subscription price of the options if the call options are taken advantage of (with reservations for any recalculation due to bonus issues, merging or splitting shares, new issues, reduction in share capital, or other similar actions). At the time of the summons Latour owns 552,200 repurchased class B shares, all of which are charged by previous years' call options. This means, if this year's program is fully subscribed, that Latour needs to buy back 2,434,000 class B shares in order to ensure delivery for this and previous year's programs. Notwithstanding participation in the call option program, and due to no new shares being issued, Latour's share capital remains unchanged.

The Board of Directors invokes the following as a reason for deviation from the shareholders' preferential right. The call option program is expected to contribute to higher motivation and long-term commitment among the employees as well as strengthen the ties between the employees and the company. Furthermore, the Board of Directors asses that the call option program will contribute to recruit and retain qualified and experienced employees. It is the Board's assessment that the call option program will benefit both the employees and the company's shareholders through increased share value.

The proposal is a part of creating a long-term incentive for important employees. The proposal is considered to be of reasonable scope for employees and Latour's shareholders. There is already a corresponding program from Annual General Meetings 2020-2023 comprising 1,986,200 call options which give the right to purchase the same numbers of shares. It is the intention of the Board of Directors to return to similar propositions at coming Annual General Meetings. Since the program is based on market terms and since it entails a financial risk for the senior officers it does not generate social security costs. Latour has no/only limited costs attributable to the call option program for advisers in connection with the preparation of the decision documentation.

The call option program has been prepared by the Board of Directors and was discussed at the Board meeting in March 2024.

Majority requirement
In order for the decision regarding point 16 to be valid shareholders holding two-thirds (2/3) of the votes given and the shares represented at the Annual General Meeting must support them. For the decision regarding point 17 and point 18 to be valid a majority of nine-tenths (9/10) of the votes given and the shares represented at the Annual General Meeting is required.

Number of shares and votes
At the time of the summons the total number of shares in the company amounted to 639,840,000, of which 47,593,968 class A shares and 592,246,032 class B shares. In total the company owned 552,200 class B shares. The total number of votes in the company amounted to 1,068,185,712 of which the company had 552,200 votes that is not represented at the general meeting.

Documents
The Annual Report including the Audit Report, an Auditor Statement according to chapter 8 § 54 of the Company Act regarding the application of principles for remuneration and other employment terms for company management, the board's complete proposals for decision in points 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 as well as the board's proposals and statements according to chapter 18 § 4 of the Company Act will be available no later than three weeks before the Annual General Meeting on the company website www.latour.se.
