PROPOSALS

Election of Chair of the meeting (item 2)

The board of directors proposes that attorney-at-law Victoria Skoglund, or if she is prevented from attending, the person the board of directors proposes in her place, be elected as the chair of the meeting.  

Resolution on issue of warrants (incentive program 2022/2025) (item 7)

The board of directors proposes an implementation of a long-term incentive program for employees of the group in accordance with items 7A and 7B below, whereby warrants will be issued without payment of any consideration to the Company which will thereafter transfer the warrants to employees of the group. It is proposed that the resolutions under the items below are conditional upon each other and made jointly as one resolution.

Proposal for resolution on transfer of warrants to certain employees (item 7A)

Background

The board of directors deems it to be in the interest of the Company and its shareholders that employees of the Company’s group are involved in the Company’s development by being offered to acquire warrants in an incentive program. A personal ownership commitment among the employees of the group is expected to lead to increased motivation and an increased sense of belonging with the Company, as well as to an increased interest in the business and performance of the Company. In addition, personal ownership contributes to creating an overall focus for the individual employee. The effects are amplified by the fact that the program is implemented on market terms where the persons concerned take part in stock price increases, but also take a personal risk by paying a market-based price for the warrants

Transfer and allotment

The board of directors proposes that the meeting resolves on transfer of warrants to certain employees in accordance with the following terms.

The right to acquire warrants shall vest in the following categories of employees of the group in the ascribed number in accordance with instructions from the board of directors:

-        Group 1 comprises the CEO and thus consists of one person. The eligible person in group 1 is guaranteed allotment of 500,000 warrants.

-        Group 2 comprises members of management and consists of 7 persons. Eligible persons in group 2 are guaranteed allotment of 230,000 warrants each.

-        Group 3 comprises of the extended management and consists of 24 persons. Eligible persons in group 3 are guaranteed allotment of 115,000 warrants each.

-        Group 4 comprises of other employees (excluding Hub personnel and Couriers) and consists of 39 persons. Eligible persons in group 4 are guaranteed allotment of 60,000 warrants each.

If there are remaining warrants following subscriptions up to the guaranteed level according to the above, remaining warrants may be distributed among the participants irrespective of category. However, participants may be allotted not more than twice the number of warrants compared to the guaranteed allotment. The total number of warrants in the issue may not be exceeded.

In the event that not all participants who wish to subscribe for the maximum number of warrants may receive full allotment, the remaining warrants shall be allotted these participants pro rata in relation to the participants guaranteed number of warrants, however not exceeding the maximum allotment. The board of directors resolves on the final allotment.

Allotment is conditional upon the subscriber, at the time of allotment, being employed by the group and at such time not having resigned or had their employment terminated.

The warrants shall be transferred on market terms at a price which will be determined on a calculated market value for the warrants at the time of the transfer. Per January 31, 2022, the value amounted to SEK 0.30 per warrant, which corresponds to the market value of the warrant using an established valuation method (Black & Scholes).

Costs and dilution associated with the program

As the warrants are issued to the employees on market terms, the Company will not incur any costs for social security contributions in connection with the incentive program. Against this background, there is no need to hedge the program. Consequently, the program will not affect any key performance indicators.

Given full participation and full exercise of the warrants, the program will entail a maximum dilution of approximately 2.98 per cent based on the total number of shares in the Company following implementation of the incentive program.

Preparation of the matter

The proposal for the general meeting has been prepared by the board of directors together with external advisers.

Previous incentive programs

At the extraordinary general meetings on 11 December 2018, 5 November 2019 and 12 January 2021, respectively, the Board resolves to implement long-term incentive programs whereby employees of the Company are offered to acquire warrants which entitle to subscription of shares in the Company. For more information on the 2018 program, please refer to note 20 in the annual report for the financial year 2019. For more information on the 2019 program, please refer to note 20 in the annual report for the financial year 2020 and for more information on the 2021 program, please refer to the Company’s website.

Proposal for resolution on issue of warrants (item 7B)

Issue of warrants

The board of directors proposes that the meeting resolves on an issue of warrants in accordance with the following.

1.     The Company shall issue a maximum of 7 210 000 warrants where each warrant shall entitle the holder to subscribe for one new share in the Company, as a consequence of which the Company's share capital may increase by a maximum of SEK 883,976.47[1].

2.     Disapplying the shareholders’ pre-emption rights, the right to subscribe for the warrants shall vest in the Company, with the right and obligation to transfer the warrants to the employees in accordance with item A above. The reason for disapplying the shareholders’ pre-emption rights is that the board of directors wishes to implement an incentive program for employees in the group.

3.     The warrants will be issued without payment of any consideration. Subscription shall be effected no later than March 7, 2022. The board of directors shall be entitled to extend the subscription period.

(b)   The subscription price and the number of shares which can be subscribed for on the basis of a warrant may be subject to adjustment in accordance with Section 8 of the terms and conditions for the warrants.

(c)   Subscription for shares based upon warrants may take place during a period of three (3) weeks commencing on the day after the company's quarterly report for Q4 2024 has been made public.
