The meeting resolved, in accordance with the proposal of the board of directors, to adopt the following amendments to the articles of association, § 8:

The meeting resolved to implement a long-term incentive program ("LTIP 2021/2024") in accordance with the proposal of the board of directors. Participation in LTIP 2021/2024 presupposes that the participants with their own funds acquire shares in the Company ("Investment Shares") at market price. If the Investment Shares are retained until 31 May 2024 (the "Savings Period") and the participant remains in the employment in the group throughout the Savings Period, then each Investment Share entitles the holder to acquire up to four shares in the Company ("Performance Shares") at a price corresponding to 70 percent of the volume-weighted average price of completed transactions in the Company's shares during the period from and including 12 May 2021 up to and including 21 May 2021 on Nasdaq Stockholm. In order to secure that the transfer of shares can take place within the framework of the long-term incentive program, the meeting resolved on a directed issue of 78,000 warrants, approval of the subsidiary's transfer of warrants to key-employees, authorization for the board of directors to resolve on acquisition of treasury shares and resolution on transfer of treasury shares.
The meeting approved the board’s proposal regarding remuneration report.
