Approval of the resolution by the Board of Directors to issue new shares with preferential rights for the shareholders
The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to approve the Board of Directors’ resolution of 23 March 2016, to increase the Company’s share capital by the maximum amount determined by the Board of Directors, or any director or directors appointed by the Board of Directors among its members, and in other respects in accordance with the following main conditions.
The Company’s shareholders shall have preferential rights to subscribe for the new shares in proportion to the shares previously owned. The record date for determining which shareholders shall be entitled to subscribe for new shares on a preferential basis shall be 2 May 2016. The Board of Directors, or any director or directors appointed by the Board of Directors among its members, shall be authorised to determine, no later than the fifth weekday prior to the record date, the highest amount by which the Company’s share capital will increase, the highest number of shares that will be issued and the subscription price to be paid for each new share. New shares shall be paid in cash.
New shares may be subscribed for during the period from 4 May 2016 until, and including, 19 May 2016, or such later period of time as the Board of Directors may decide. If not all shares are subscribed for by the exercise of subscription rights, the Board of Directors shall decide on the allotment of shares subscribed for without the exercise of subscription rights up to the maximum amount of the new share issue, and the Board shall firstly allot shares to those that also subscribed for shares by exercising subscription rights and, in case of oversubscription, in proportion to the number of subscription rights used for subscription of shares; secondly, to others that have applied to the Company for subscription without subscription rights and, in case they cannot receive full allocation, in proportion to the number of shares that each has applied to subscribe for; thirdly, to the guarantors of the share issue, in proportion to their respective subscription undertakings.
The new share issue requires that the Articles of Association be amended in accordance with item 7 above.
Determination regarding the number of members of the Board of Directors (item 9)
Given that Stein Revelsby resigned from the Board of Directors of Anoto Group AB on 23 March 2016, it is proposed that the Board of Directors until the next Annual General Meeting shall consist of four members with no deputies.
