Resolution on adoption of a warrant-based incentive program for independent Board members in CDON and directed issue of warrantsThe AGM resolved to adopt a warrant-based incentive program for Board members who are independent in relation to major shareholders of the company ("Board Program 2022") through a directed issue of a maximum of 2,504 warrants (Sw. teckningsoptioner) of series 2022/2025, entailing an increase in share capital upon full exercise by a maximum of SEK 2,504. To be able to participate in Board Program 2022, Board members are required to make a private investment through the acquisition of shares in CDON ("Investment Shares"). For each Investment Share allocated the Board member will be allotted one (1) warrant free of charge. Each (1) warrant entitles subscription for one (1) share in the company. New subscriptions for shares exercised through the warrants can be made from and including 1 June 2025 up to and including the day that falls 30 calendar days thereafter. The subscription price for each new share subscribed by support of the warrants shall be determined to an amount equivalent to 130 percent of the volume-weighted average price of the company's share on Nasdaq First North Growth Market during the period ten trading days from 12 May 2022 and forward.
The complete terms and conditions for the warrants are available on the companys website, investors.cdon.com.
Resolution on adoption of a long-term incentive program for senior executives and other key employees in CDON and directed issue of warrantsThe AGM resolved to adopt a long-term incentive program ("Ownership Program 2022:2") for senior executives and other key employees (up to 9 persons in total) in CDON through a directed issue of a maximum of 50,180 warrants of series 2022/2026:2, entailing an increase in share capital upon full exercise by a maximum of SEK 50,180. To be awarded remuneration the participant needs to buy and hold shares in the company ("Investment Shares") during the period between 1 June 2022 - 31 May 2026 (the "Vesting Period"), the participant must be employed by the company until the end of the Vesting Period (with the exception for one fourth (1/4) of the remuneration that may be vested as of 1 June 2025), and the total shareholder return (TSR) on the companys shares must meet certain predefined goals. For each Investment Share the participant holds within Ownership Program 2022:2, the participant will, free of charge, be allocated one (1) share award. At the end of the program the participants are allotted shares (alternatively warrants entitling the participants to subscribe for shares in the company against payment of the share's quota value) ("Performance Shares") from the company in relation to the number of share awards the participant holds. If the participant is granted Performance Shares in the form of warrants the participant will be compensated by an extra salary payment for the amount that the participant must pay when exercising the warrant.
Resolution on reduction of share capital by way of retirement of shares and increase of share capital by way of bonus issueThe AGM resolved to reduce the company's share capital by a total of SEK 11,320 by way of retirement of a total of 11,320 shares. The purpose of the reduction is allocation to unrestricted equity. Resolution on the reduction of the share capital may be made without obtaining permission from the Swedish Companies Registration Office, or in disputed cases a general court, since the AGM resolved to simultaneously increase the share capital through a bonus issue with an amount of SEK 11,320, which corresponds to the amount by which the share capital had been reduced. The bonus issue shall be carried out without the issue of new shares by transferring the amount from unrestricted equity.
Resolution on authorization for the Board of Directors to resolve upon issue of sharesThe AGM resolved to authorize the Board of Directors to, on one or several occasions during the period up until the next Annual General Meeting, resolve on new issues of shares, with or without deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights. A maximum of 1,612,620 shares, which corresponds to a maximum of twenty-five (25) percent of the total number of outstanding shares in the company, may be issued under the authorization. Payment may, in addition to cash payment, be made in kind or by set-off, or otherwise on specific terms.
The purpose of the authorization, and the reasons for any deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights are that issues should be able to take place to increase the companys financial flexibility and the Board of Directors' room for manoeuvre and enable the company to fully, or partially, finance any company acquisitions or acquisitions of businesses by issuing financial instruments as payment in connection with agreements on acquisitions, or alternatively to raise capital for such acquisitions.
