Resolution regarding nomination committee (item 17)

The nomination committee proposes that the meeting resolves that the company shall have a nomination committee consisting of a representative of each of the three largest shareholders, based on the number of votes held, together with the chairman of the board. If any of the three largest shareholders declines to appoint a member to the nomination committee, additional shareholders are, by order of size, to be offered appointment until three members are appointed. The names of the members of the nomination committee and the names of the shareholders they represent shall be made public not later than six months before the annual general meeting and be based on shareholding statistics provided by Euroclear Sweden AB per the last banking day in August 2024 as well as other reliable shareholder information which has been provided to the Company at such time. Unless the members of the nomination committee agree otherwise, the member representing the largest shareholder, based on the number of votes held, shall be appointed chairman of the nomination committee. If a shareholder representative no longer represents the owner or leaves the nomination committee before its work is completed, the shareholder shall be entitled to appoint a new member of the nomination committee. A shareholder who has appointed a member of the nomination committee has the right to remove such member and appoint a new member of the nomination committee. In the event a shareholder that has appointed a member is no longer one of the three largest shareholders, based on the number of votes held, the appointed member shall resign and be replaced by a new member in accordance with the above procedure. Unless special circumstances apply, no changes should be made in the composition of the nomination committee as a result of minor changes in voting rights or changes in voting rights which occur later than two months before the annual general meeting. Changes in the composition of the nomination committee shall be made public as soon as possible.

The nomination committee shall prepare and submit proposals to the general meeting on chairman of the meeting, board members, chairman of the board, board fees to each of the board members and the chairman as well as remuneration for committee work, if any, fees to the company's auditor, and, when applicable, proposal regarding election of new auditor.

The nomination committee shall be entitled to charge the company with costs for consultants and other expenses necessary for the nomination committee to carry out its duties.

Resolution regarding authorization for the board of directors to resolve to issue new shares (item 18)

The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting authorizes the board of directors to resolve to issue new shares on one or several occasions until the next annual general meeting, with or without preferential rights for the shareholders, against cash payment or against payment through set-off or in kind, or otherwise on special conditions. However, such issue of shares must never result in the company's issued share capital or the number of shares in the company at any time, being increased by more than a total of 20 per cent. The purpose of the authorization is to enable the board to make corporate acquisitions, product acquisitions or to enter into collaboration agreements, or to raise working capital or broaden the shareholder base.

The CEO shall be authorized to make such minor adjustments to this resolution that may be necessary in connection with the registration thereof.

Resolution regarding authorization for the board of directors to resolve to repurchase and transfer own shares (item 19)

The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting authorizes the board of directors to resolve to repurchase, on one or several occasions until the next annual general meeting, as many own shares as may be purchased without the company's holding at any time exceeding 10 per cent of the total number of shares in the company. The shares shall be purchased on Nasdaq Stockholm and only at a price per share within the price range applicable, i.e. the range between the highest purchase price and the lowest selling price.

The board of directors also proposes that the annual general meeting authorizes the board of directors to resolve, on one or several occasions until the next annual general meeting, to transfer (sell) own shares. Transfers may be carried out on Nasdaq Stockholm at a price within the price range applicable, i.e. the range between the highest purchase price and the lowest selling price. Transfers may also be made in other ways, with or without preferential rights for the shareholders, against cash payment or against payment through set-off or in kind, or otherwise on special conditions. Upon such transfers, the price shall be established so that it is not below market terms. However, a discount to the stock market price may apply, in line with market practice. Transfers of own shares may be made of up to such number of shares as is held by the company at the time of the board of director's resolution regarding the transfer.

The purpose of the authorization to repurchase own shares is to promote efficient capital usage in the company, to provide flexibility as regards the company's possibilities to distribute capital to its shareholders and for use in the context of the company's incentive plans. The purpose of the authorization to transfer own shares is to enable the board to make corporate acquisitions, product acquisitions or enter into collaboration agreements, or to raise working capital or broaden the shareholder base or for use in the context of the company's incentive plans.

The board of director's statement in accordance with chapter 19 section 22 of the Swedish Companies Act is made available together with the proposal.

The CEO shall be authorized to make such minor adjustments to this resolution that may be necessary in connection with the registration thereof.

Resolution regarding adoption of new performance-based long-term incentive program LTIP 2024 (item 20)

The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting resolves to implement a new performance-based long-term incentive program for not more than 130 selected employees within the Orexo group ("LTIP 2024").

LTIP 2024 is a three-year performance-based program. Under LTIP 2024, the participants will be granted, free of charge, (i) performance-based share awards ("Share Awards"), and (ii) performance-based employee stock options ("Employee Stock Options"), entitling to a maximum of 2,360,884 shares in Orexo, in accordance with the terms stipulated below. The Share Awards entitle to a maximum of 708,265 shares in Orexo and the Employee Stock Options entitle to a maximum of 1,652,619 shares in Orexo.

The rationale for the proposal

LTIP 2024 substantially corresponds with the performance based long-term incentive program adopted at the annual general meeting 2023 (LTIP 2023). LTIP 2024 is intended for certain senior executives and employees within the Orexo group. The board of directors of Orexo believes that an equity incentive program is an important part of a competitive remuneration package to be able to attract, retain and motivate qualified employees to the Orexo group. With reference thereto, the board of directors has decided to propose the adoption of a program corresponding to the program adopted at the annual general meeting 2023 (LTIP 2023). LTIP 2024 is based on performance-based Share Awards and Employee Stock Options and adapted to the current needs of the Orexo group.

The purpose of LTIP 2024 is to attract, retain and motivate employees of the Orexo group, provide a competitive remuneration package and to align the interests of the senior executives and employees with the interests of the shareholders. The board of directors is of the opinion that this strengthens the interest for Orexo's business and also stimulates company loyalty in the future. In light of the above, the board of directors believes that the implementation of LTIP 2024 will have a positive effect on the development of the Orexo group and consequently that LTIP 2024 is beneficial to both the shareholders and the company.

Conditions for Share Awards and Employee Stock Options

The following conditions shall apply for the Share Awards and the Employee Stock Options.

- The Share Awards and the Employee Stock Options shall be granted free of charge to the participants as soon as possible following the annual general meeting 2024 and no later than on 30 June 2024. Out of the granted Share Awards and Employee Stock Options, 30 percent shall constitute Share Awards and 70 percent shall constitute Employee Stock Options.

- Each Share Award entitles the holder to receive one share in the company free of charge, except for the appropriate taxes, three years after the granting of the Share Award (the vesting period), provided that the holder, with some exceptions, still is employed by the Orexo group.

- Each Employee Stock Option entitles the holder to receive one share in the company upon payment of the strike price, three years after granting of the Employee Stock Option (the vesting period), provided that the holder, with some exceptions, still is employed by the Orexo group. The strike price shall be fixed to 100 percent of the volume-weighted average price for the Orexo share during the ten trading days preceding the date of the annual general meeting 2024.

- A prerequisite for entitlement to receive shares on the basis of Share Awards is that Performance Targets 1 and/or 2 have been satisfied pursuant to the terms and conditions specified below.

- A prerequisite for entitlement to receive shares on the basis of Employee Stock Options is that Performance Target 1 has been satisfied pursuant to the terms and conditions specified below.

- The number of Share Awards and Employee Stock Options encompassed by LTIP 2024 is to be re-calculated in the event that changes occur in Orexo's equity capital structure, such as a bonus issue, merger or consolidation of shares, new issue, reduction of the share capital or similar measures.

- To make the participants' interest equal with the shareholders', Orexo will compensate the participants for distributed dividends, if any, during the vesting period by increasing the number of shares that each Share Award and each Employee Stock Option, respectively, entitles to after the vesting period.

- The Share Awards and the Employee Stock Options are non-transferable and may not be pledged.

- The Share Awards and the Employee Stock Options can be granted by the parent company and any other company within the Orexo group.

Performance Conditions

The Share Awards are to be divided according to two different performance conditions encompassed by LTIP 2024. The performance conditions focus on the holder still being employed by the Orexo group ("Performance Target 1") and Orexo's financial and operational targets for 2024 ("Performance Target 2"). Of each participant's granted Share Awards, approximately 33 percent (one third) will pertain to Performance Target 1 and up to approximately 67 percent (two thirds) will pertain to Performance Target 2.

The Employee Stock Options are to be divided according to one performance condition encompassed by LTIP 2024, which is Performance Target 1. Of each participant's granted Employee Stock Options, 100 percent will pertain to Performance Target 1, meaning that no Employee Stock Options will vest unless the performance target is met.

The allotment of shares that each participant later may receive depends on achievement of the established performance targets as described below.

Performance Target 1 (for Share Awards and Employee Stock Options): This target pertains to the holder still being employed by the Orexo group upon vesting.

Performance Target 2 (for Share Awards): This target pertains to the fulfilment of the financial and operational targets for the financial year 2024 as established by the board of directors and relates to Orexo's key KPIs as for example revenue, profitability and achieved milestones, etc. Performance achievement of individual targets is weighted into an overall average performance achievement. The outcome will be measured lineally; meaning that from zero to 100 percent of the Share Awards will vest depending on the overall average rate of performance of the financial and operational targets. All Share Awards will vest and entitle to one share each if 100 percent of the overall average performance is achieved. When calculating the overall performance achievement, individual targets may account for a maximum of 120 percent achievement, but the overall average performance is capped at 100 percent. If performance achievement falls below 80 percent for an individual target, this individual target accounts for zero in the calculation of the overall average achieved.

The board of directors will present the rate of achievement of Performance Target 2 in the annual report for 2024.

Allocation

The participants are divided into two allocation categories: (i) CEO and other members of group management; (ii) other personnel. The maximum number of Share Awards and Employee Stock Options that a participant may be granted in LTIP 2024 depends on the category to which the participant belongs.

To ensure that the value of the share-based remuneration does not reach an unintended level in relation to other remuneration, the value of the Share Awards and Employee Stock Options granted to the CEO and group management must not, at the time of the grant, exceed a value equal to the person's current annual base salary. For other personnel the value must not exceed 33 percent of the annual base salary.

The board of directors shall resolve upon the final allocation of the Share Awards and Employee Stock Options as soon as possible after the annual general meeting. Several factors will be considered in order to secure recruitment, retention and motivation when deciding upon individual allocations including position within Orexo, individual performance and total value of current remuneration package. Individual allocation cannot exceed the above-mentioned limit for the category that the individual belongs to. Out of the allocated Share Awards and Employee Stock Options, 30 percent will constitute Share Awards and 70 percent will constitute Employee Stock Options.

The share price that is to form the basis for calculating the number of Share Awards and Employee Stock Options is to correspond to the average last price paid during a given period of trading. This period comprises the first ten days of trading immediately following the date of the 2024 annual general meeting. The share price is then divided by the individual granting value in order to arrive at the total number of Share Awards and Employee Stock Options granted per participant.

Preparation and administration

The board of directors shall be responsible for preparing the detailed terms and conditions of LTIP 2024, in accordance with the mentioned terms and guidelines. To this end, the board of directors shall be entitled to make adjustments to meet foreign regulations or market conditions. The board of directors may also make other adjustments if significant changes in the Orexo group, or its operating environment, would result in a situation where the decided terms and conditions for LTIP 2024 no longer are appropriate. Prior to finally determining allotment of shares on the basis of Share Awards and Employee Stock Options, the board of directors will assess whether the outcome of LTIP 2024 is reasonable. This assessment will be conducted in relation to the company's financial earnings and position, conditions in the stock market and other circumstances. Should the board of directors not consider the outcome to be reasonable, the number of shares to be allotted will be reduced.

Preparation of the proposal

LTIP 2024 has been initiated by the board of directors of Orexo and has been structured in consultation with external advisers based on an evaluation of prior incentive programs and best market practices. LTIP 2024 has been prepared by the remuneration committee and reviewed at meetings of the board of directors.

Scope and costs of the program

LTIP 2024 will be accounted for in accordance with "IFRS 2 - Share-based payments". IFRS 2 stipulates that the Share Awards and Employee Stock Options should be expensed as personnel costs over the vesting period and will be accounted for directly against equity. Personnel costs in accordance with IFRS 2 do not affect the company's cash flow. Social security costs will be expensed in the income statement during the vesting period.

Assuming a share price at the time of implementation of SEK 15.60, that Performance Target 1 is achieved and that Performance Target 2 is achieved at 50 percent, including a share price increase of 30 percent during the vesting period, the total cost for LTIP 2024 including social security costs is estimated to approximately SEK 27.0 million before tax. The corresponding total cost with full achievement of Performance Target 1 and Performance Target 2, including a share price increase of 60 percent during the vesting period, is estimated to approximately SEK 39.2 million before tax.

LTIP 2024 will have marginal effects on Orexo's key ratios since delivery of shares shall be made by way of transfer of Orexo's repurchased shares as is described under section "Delivery under LTIP 2024" below.

Since delivery of shares under LTIP 2024 shall be made by way of transfer of Orexo's repurchased shares, LTIP 2024 entails no dilution of the shareholding of the company. The maximum level of dilution for all other outstanding long-term incentive programs in the company amounts to 0 percent, since delivery of shares shall be made by way of transfer of Orexo's repurchased shares.

Information on Orexo's existing incentive programs can be found in the 2023 annual report, note 10 and 24, as well as on the company's website www.orexo.com.

Delivery under LTIP 2024

The board of directors proposes that delivery of shares under LTIP 2024 shall be made by way of transfer of Orexo's repurchased shares. In addition, the board of directors proposes that delivery may also be satisfied through payment of a cash amount that is equal to the value of the Orexo share on the date of vesting less the applicable strike price for any Employee Stock Options.

Resolution regarding adoption of new performance-based long-term incentive program LTIP Stay-on 2024 (item 21)

The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting resolves to implement a new performance-based long-term incentive program for certain Global Management Team ("GMT") employees and US Leadership Team ("USLT") employees within the Orexo group ("LTIP Stay-on 2024"). LTIP Stay-on 2024 is proposed to include up to approximately 13 GMT and USLT employees within the Orexo group.

LTIP Stay-on 2024 is a three-year performance-based program. Under LTIP Stay-on 2024, the participants will be granted, free of charge, (i) performance-based share awards ("Share Awards"), and (ii) performance-based employee stock options ("Employee Stock Options"), entitling to a maximum of 70,000 shares in Orexo, in accordance with the terms stipulated below. The Share Awards entitle to a maximum of 35,000 shares in Orexo and the Employee Stock Options entitle to a maximum of 35,000 shares in Orexo.

The rationale for the proposal

LTIP Stay-on 2024 substantially corresponds with the performance based long-term incentive program adopted at the annual general meeting 2023 (LTIP Stay-on 2023). LTIP Stay-on 2024 is intended for certain GMT and USLT employees within the Orexo group and qualification for participation in LTIP Stay-on 2024 is conditional upon the participant either keeping shares from allocations in Orexo's other on-going long-term incentive programs (the "implemented LTIPs") or investing in new Orexo shares with part of or the entire annual cash bonus of the participant. The board of directors of Orexo believes that an equity incentive program is an important part of a competitive remuneration package to be able to attract, retain and motivate qualified employees to the Orexo group. The board of directors further believes that LTIP Stay-on 2024 constitutes an important incentive for GMT and USLT employees to keep shares in the company. With reference thereto, the board of directors has decided to propose the adoption of a program corresponding to the program adopted at the annual general meeting 2023 (LTIP Stay-on 2023). LTIP Stay-on 2024 is based on performance-based Share Awards and Employee Stock Options and adapted to the current needs of the Orexo group.

The purpose of LTIP Stay-on 2024 is to attract, retain and motivate employees of the Orexo group, provide a competitive remuneration package and to align the interests of GMT and USLT employees with the interests of the shareholders.

In light of the above, the board of directors believes that the implementation of LTIP Stay-on 2024 will have a positive effect on the development of the Orexo group and consequently that LTIP Stay-on 2024 is beneficial to both the shareholders and the company.

LTIP Stay-on 2024 will be accounted for in accordance with "IFRS 2 - Share-based payments". IFRS 2 stipulates that the Share Awards and Employee Stock Options should be expensed as personnel costs over the vesting period and will be accounted for directly against equity. Personnel costs in accordance with IFRS 2 do not affect the company's cash flow. Social security costs will be expensed in the income statement during the vesting period.

Assuming a share price at the time of implementation of SEK 15.60, that Performance Target 1 is achieved and that Performance Target 2 is achieved at 50 percent, including a share price increase of 30 percent during the vesting period, the total cost for LTIP Stay-on 2024 including social security costs is estimated to approximately SEK 0.9 million before tax. The corresponding total cost with full achievement of Performance Target 1 and Performance Target 2, including a share price increase of 60 percent during the vesting period, is estimated to approximately SEK 1.2 million before tax.

LTIP Stay-on 2024 will have marginal effects on Orexo's key ratios since delivery of shares shall be made by way of transfer of Orexo's repurchased shares as is described under section "Delivery under LTIP Stay-on 2024" below.

Since delivery of shares under LTIP Stay-on 2024 shall be made by way of transfer of Orexo's repurchased shares, LTIP Stay-on 2024 entails no dilution of the shareholding of the company. The maximum level of dilution for all other outstanding long-term incentive programs in the company amounts to 0 percent, since delivery of shares shall be made by way of transfer of Orexo's repurchased shares.

Information on Orexo's existing incentive programs can be found in the 2023 annual report, note 10 and 24, as well as on the company's website www.orexo.com.

Delivery under LTIP Stay-on 2024

The board of directors proposes that delivery of shares under LTIP Stay-on 2024 shall be made by way of transfer of Orexo's repurchased shares. In addition, the board of directors proposes that delivery may also be satisfied through payment of a cash amount that is equal to the value of the Orexo share on the date of vesting less the applicable strike price for any Employee Stock Options.
