Resolution regarding Performance Share Plan and transfer of bought-back shares
under the Plan
The Annual General Meeting decided to introduce a Performance Share Plan, in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposal. The plan comprises approximately 60 people. Participants are allotted performance-based share rights, which, after a vesting period that is marginally shorter than three years, give right to shares, provided that certain conditions have been fulfilled. In order to participate in the plan, the participant must invest part of his or her annual salary in Nobia shares, and allocation of shares requires that performance targets relating to earnings per share have been achieved.
For the Performance Share Plan, the Annual General Meeting resolved, in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposals, to transfer bought-back Nobia shares to the participants of the plan to be used upon allocation under the plan. The maximum number of shares that can be allocated under the plan, including the shares that may be divested on Nasdaq Stockholm to cover costs related to the plan, is limited to 1,650,000, which represents approximately 0,97 per cent of the outstanding shares and votes.
Authorisation to acquire and sell shares
The Annual General Meeting resolved to authorise the Board of Directors to, on one or several occasions during the period until the 2024 Annual General Meeting, acquire shares in an amount limited so that the total holding of treasury shares does not exceed 10 per cent of all shares in the company. The Annual General Meeting also resolved to authorise the Board of Directors to, on one or several occasions during the period until the 2024 Annual General Meeting, sell treasury shares outside Nasdaq Stockholm.
