  • It was resolved, in accordance with the Board of Directors' proposal, to introduce a long term performance based incentive program for the Company's employees and contractors ("Co-worker LTIP 2021"). The program is share based and intended the Company's employees and contractors. The program comprises a total of not more than 1,356,131 share awards and the number of share awards that shall be awarded to each participant shall correspond to the yearly allocation (which is a percentage of the base salary) divided by the volume weighted average price of Oncopeptides' share on Nasdaq Stockholm for the 10 trading days preceding the grant date. The share awards are subject to performance vesting based on the development of the price of the Company's share over the period from the date the Share Awards are allocated ("Grant Date") up to and including the third anniversary of the Grant Date (the "Vesting Date"). Each vested share award entitles the holder to receive one share in the Company without any compensation being payable provided that the holder is still an employee of Oncopeptids at the relevant times of vesting. It was further resolved, in accordance with the Board of Directors' proposal, to issue not more than 1,487,370 warrants in order to ensure delivery of shares under Co-worker LTIP 2021.
  • It was resolved, in accordance with the the Main Owners', HealthCap VI L.P. and Stiftelsen Industrifonden (the "Main Owners"), proposal, to introduce a long term performance based incentive program for certain members of the Board of Directors ("Board LTIP 2021"). The program is share based and intended for main owner independent members of the Board of Directors. The program comprises a total of not more than 35,000 share awards and the number of share awards that shall be awarded to each participant shall correspond to a certain amount (SEK 1,500,000 to the Chairman and SEK 600,000 to each of the other main owner independent members of the Board of Directors) divided by the volume weighted average price of Oncopeptides' share on Nasdaq Stockholm for the 10 trading days preceding the grant date. The share awards are subject to performance vesting based on the development of the price of the Company's share over the period from the date of the grant up to the date of, whichever is earliest, (i) the annual general meeting 2024 or (ii) 1 June 2024. Each vested share award entitles the holder to receive one share in the Company without any compensation being payable provided that the holder is still a Board member of Oncopeptides at the relevant times of vesting. It was further resolved, in accordance with the Main Owners'proposal (c), that the company can enter into an equity swap agreement with a third party.
  • It was resolved, in accordance with the Board of Directors' proposal, to authorize the Board of Directors to, until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or more occasions, decide upon issuances of new shares, issuance of warrants and/or convertibles. New issues of shares and issues of warrants and/or convertibles may occur with or without preferential rights for shareholders of the Company and may be made either in cash and/or by way of set-off or contribution in kind or otherwise on terms. The purpose of the authorisation is to increase the financial flexibility of the company and the acting scope of the board of directors. Should the board of directors resolve on an issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, the reason for this must be to finance an acquisition of operations or, alternatively, to procure capital to finance project development. The number of shares issued under the authorisation, or the number of shares created in connection with exercise of warrants or conversion of convertibles, may not correspond to a dilution of more than 20 per cent of the total number of shares outstanding at the Annual General Meeting's resolution on the proposed authorization, after full exercise of the authorization.
  • It was resolved to adopt the proposed guidelines for remuneration to the senior management.
