Resolution proposed by the Board of Directors

Item 6. Resolution to approve the Board of Directors’ resolution on a new issue of shares with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights

The Board of Directors of the Company proposes that the meeting resolves to approve the Board of Directors’ resolution on a new issue of no more than 6,243,745 shares with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights with the following terms:

The Company’s share capital may be increased with not more than SEK 124,874.9 through the issuance of not more than 6,243,745 new shares (the “Shares”), each with a quotient value of SEK 0.02.

The right to subscribe for the new Shares shall with derogation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights belong to the investors who have notified their interest in the book-building process.

The new Shares are issued against a subscription price equal to the amount of SEK 6.98 per Share. The subscription price has been determined by the Company’s Board of Directors in consultation with its financial advisors based on a book-building process among institutional investors. The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights are to raise capital for planned preparations towards a phase III clinical program in a timely and cost-efficient manner and to diversify the shareholder base. The Board of Directors’ assessment is that the subscription price in the directed share issue is in accordance with market conditions, since it has been determined through an accelerated book building procedure.

Subscription of Shares shall be made in a special subscription list no later than 10 October 2019. Payment for the new Shares shall be made in cash to an account designated by the Company no later than 10 October 2019. The Board of Directors shall be entitled to extend the subscription period and the period of time for payment.  

The new Shares shall entitle to dividends from and including the first record date for dividends decided after the new Shares have been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

The chairman of the Board of Directors, the managing director, or anyone authorized by the Board of Directors, shall have the right to make any minor adjustments required in order to register this resolution.

Majority requirements 
A resolution in accordance with item 6 requires support by shareholders holding not less than two-thirds (2/3) of both the shares voted and of the shares represented at the general meeting.

Number of shares and votes in the company  
The total number of shares in the Company at the time of issuance of this notice is 68,781,275. The Company does not hold any of its own shares.

Shareholders’ right to request information  
Pursuant to Chapter 7 section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act (Sw. aktiebolagslagen (2005:551)) the Board of Directors and the managing director are under a duty to, if any shareholder so requests and the Board of Directors deems that it can be made without material damage to the Company, provide information, regarding circumstances which may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda or of the Company’s economic situation. Such duty to provide information also comprises the Company’s relation to the other group companies, the consolidated financial statements and such circumstances regarding subsidiaries which are set out in the foregoing sentence.
