Background and rationale
The purpose of the proposed program and the reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, is to offer certain directors of the board a possibility to take part in a value growth in the Company's share, which is expected to increase the long-term commitment to the Company’s operation and earnings development and to raise the motivation and sense of belonging with the Company. The proposer considers that the program may have a positive impact on the Company’s continued development to the benefit of the Company and its shareholders.
A description of other incentive programs, the preparation of the proposal, costs for the program and effect on important key figures etc. is outlined below.
Issue of warrants
Proudtree Capital AB, shareholder of the Company, proposes that the extra general meeting of the shareholders shall resolve to issue a maximum of 100,000 warrants, which may result in a maximum total increase in the company's share capital of SEK 5,000. The warrants shall entitle to subscription of new shares in the company.
The following terms shall apply to the issuance:
The warrants may, with deviation from the shareholders' priority right, be subscribed for only by the senior executives Gustavo Silveira and Andreas Forssell, who may each subscribe for 50,000 warrants. The right to allotment of the warrants is conditional upon that the key employees entitled to subscribe for the warrants having entered into investment agreements with the Company concerning the warrants including provisions regarding pre-emption rights etc..
The warrants shall be subscribed for no later than on 31 March 2022 on a separate subscription list.
The warrants are issued at price of SEK 4.06 per warrant.
Payment for subscribed warrants shall be made in cash no later than on 30 April 2022.
Each warrant entitles to subscription of one new share in the company at a price of SEK 250. Subscription for new share by exercise of warrant shall be made during the period as from 1 August 2024 to and including 1 September 2024.The share premium shall be transferred to the unrestricted premium reserve.
A new share subscribed for by exercise of a warrant has a right to dividends as of the first record day for dividends following registration of the new share issue with the Companies Registration Office.
The purpose of the issuance and the deviation from the shareholders priority right is, within the framework of an incentive program, to offer certain directors ownership in the company. The purpose is to create a common interest for the company's shareholders and key individuals to work for and aim at the company achieving the best development possible with respect to its business and value. The subscription price is based on the market value of the warrants according to the Black & Scholes valuation model.
The complete terms and conditions for the warrants are available from the Company no later than two weeks before the meeting, which means, among other things, that the subscription price as well as the number of shares as a warrant entitles the holder to subscribe will be recalculated in certain cases.
It is proposed that the board of directors or a person appointed by the board of directors be authorised to make such minor adjustments in the above resolution that may be required in connection with the registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.
The number of warrants according to this appendix 5 constitutes the number of warrants to be issued prior the division of shares (1:10) that is expected to be adopted at the general meeting. When considering the division of shares, the number of warrants shall instead be 1,000,000 warrants.
Preparation of incentive program etc. (it is noted that this is not a topic for resolution)
Proposal on Incentive Program 2022/2024:1 has been prepare by external advisors in consultation with the shareholder Proudtree Capital AB.
Valuation and Costs and effects on key figures
Subscription and payment shall be made at a price equal to the warrant's fair market value. The market value of the warrant is, according to a preliminary valuation based on a market value of the underlying share of SEK 160, SEK 4.06 per warrant, assuming an exercise price of SEK 250 per share. Black & Scholes' valuation model has been used for the valuation, assuming a risk-free interest rate of 0.01 percent and a volatility of 24.0 percent, and taking into account that no one expected
As the warrants are subscribed for and transferred at market value, it is the Company's assessment that social costs will not arise for the Company as a result of the subscription for participants domiciled in Sweden. For individual participants with tax domicile outside Sweden, social costs may arise, but these are not considered to be significant in this context. The costs for the program will therefore consist of limited costs for implementation and administration of Incentive Program 2022/2024:1, as well as certain social costs for individual participants with foreign domicile.
Other outstanding share based incentive programs
The Company has no previously established incentive programs.
The total number of registered shares and votes at the time of this proposal amount to 1,081,349.
In case all warrants issued under Incentive Program 2022/2024:1 are exercised for subscription of new shares, the number of shares and votes in the Company will increase by 100,000 (subject to the recalculation of the number of shares that each warrant entitles to subscribe for which may occur as a result of the warrant terms upon certain issues, etc.), which corresponds to a dilution of approximately 8,46 percent of the Company's share capital and votes.
A resolution in accordance with item 9 requires support by shareholders holding not less than two-thirds of the shares and votes represented at the general meeting.
For a valid resolution in accordance with items 12 and 13, it is required that these have been assisted by shareholders with at least nine tenths of the shares and votes represented at the general meeting, due to the fact that the issue and transfer of warrants is made to persons who belong to one or more of the categories according to Ch. 16 of the Swedish Companies Act.
Number of shares and votes
The total number of shares and votes in the Company as of the date of the notice amounts to 1,081,349. The Company does not own any of its own shares.
Copies of complete proposals, proxy form, forms for advance voting and other documents that shall be available in accordance with the Swedish Companies Act are available at least two weeks in advance of the extra general meeting at the Company at Birger Jarlsgatan 20, 114 34 Stockholm and at the Company's website www.eternali.se and will be sent to shareholders who request it and provide their e-mail or postal address.
