The issue shall deviate from the shareholders preferential right in accordance with the following terms and conditions:

  1. The Company shall issue a maximum of 10,000,000 warrants. Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one new share. Over-subscription cannot occur. The number of warrants has been calculated by taking into account the shares that may be issued in the rights issue the board of directors intends to resolve on during the forthcoming days in accordance with the press release published on 13 June 2022. The board of directors intends to allocate a maximum of warrants entailing a dilution of a maximum of five (5) per centof the number of shares after the rights issue.
  2. The right to subscribe for warrants shall, with deviation from the shareholders preferential rights, be granted to current or future employees and consultants in the Company. The warrants shall be issued at a price corresponding to a calculated market value for the warrants (warrant premium) using the Black-Scholes-model, calculated by an independent valutation institute. The period of measurement for the calculation of the warrant premium using the Black-Scholes-model shall be based on the shares volume-weighted average price on NGM Nordic SME during the period commencing on 17 October 2022 up to and including 28 October 2022.
  3. Notice for subscription of the warrants shall be made on a separate subscription list during the period commencing on 31 October 2022 up to and including 14 November 2022. The board of directors shall be entitled to extend the subscription period.
  4. The warrants shall be paid in cash at the latest on 30 November 2022. The board of directors shall be entitled to extend the period of payment.
  5. Each warrant shall entitle the holder during the period commencing on 15 November 2025 up to and including 15 January 2026 to subscribe for one new share by payment in cash.
  6. Payment for shares when exercising warrants shall be made in cash at an exercise price corresponding to 150 per cent of the listed volume-weighted average price for each trading day according to NGM Nordic SMEs official price list for shares in the Company during the period commencing on 17 October 2022 up to and including 28 October 2022. The exercise price, determined as set out above, shall be rounded off to the nearest SEK 0.10 whereby SEK 0.05 shall be rounded downwards. However, the price cannot be less than the shares quota value. If the exercise price exceeds the shares quota value, the amount constituting a premium shall be added to the free premium fund upon exercise of the warrants. The exercise price and the number of shares each warrant entitles subscription of, shall, in the event of a split, consolidation, new share issue etc., be re-calculated in accordance with customary re-calculation terms.
  7. The increase in the Companys share capital may, upon full exercise of the warrants, amount to a maximum of SEK 1,000,000 assuming the current quota value and with reservation for the potential increase that may be caused by re-calculation in the event of share issues etc.

  9. In connection with the allocation of warrants to the participants in the program, the Company shall reserve the right to repurchase warrants if the participants employment ceases or if the participant wishes to transfer its warrants. 

Allocation of warrants

The participants right to obtain an allocation of warrants has been differentiated with to position, responsibility and working performance in the Company. The right to be allotted warrants requires that the participant enter into a pre-emption agreement etc. with the Company. Other than that, the warrants are freely transferable.

The offer is distributed between the employees* in accordance with the following guidelines:

 

Category

 

 

Number of warrants per category

 

Maximum number of warrants per individual

CEO (1 individual)

5,000,000

5,000,000

Executives and key employees (approximately 2 individuals)

2,500,000

1,500,000

Other employees (approximately 6 individuals)

2,500,000

500,000

* As employees are included those self-employed who participate in the Company more than 50% of their time.

However, the maximum number of 1,500,000 warrants for executives and key employees and 500,000 for other employees, respectively, may not be exceeded for any individual.

Reasons for deviation from the shareholders preferential right

The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders preferential right is a wish to implement a warrant program dedicated to allotment for employees in the Company whereby they are offered the possibility to take part of a growth in the value of the Companys share. This is expected to strengthen the interest in the development of the Company - as well as the Companys share price development - and stimulate a continued loyalty to the Company during to coming years. 

Calculation of the market value

The market value of the option right will be presented in the board of directors complete proposal for resolution.

Dilution

If all warrants are exercised, the number of shares will increase by 10,000,000 shares and the share capital will increase by SEK 1,000,000 (with reservation for any re-calculation).

The board of directors intends to allocate a maximum of warrants entailing a dilution of a maximum of five (5) per cent of the number of shares after the rights issue. The dilution of shares is calculated as the maximum number of new shares and votes that may be issued by exercise of all warrants issued in accordance with this proposal for resolution, divided by the maximum number of shares and votes in the Company after exercise of all warrants that may be issued by in accordance with this proposal for resolution.

Costs

As the warrants are issued at market value, its the Companys assessment that no labor costs or social fees will accrue to the Company as a result of the warrant program. The total costs, including other costs such as remuneration to external advisors and costs for administration of the program, is estimated to amount to SEK 100,000 over the course of the program.
