Item 13 – Resolution on a long-term incentive program for members of the Board of Directors
The shareholder Norvestor proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to adopt a warrant-based incentive program for Board members of the company (”LTIP 2022/2026”) through (A) resolution on issue of warrants of series 2022/2026 to the company, and (B) resolution on approval of transfer of warrants of series 2022/2026 from the company to Board members of the company, as set out below.

Background and motives
Norvestor considers it important that Anna Alexandersson and Karl Bergman also are given an opportunity to receive remuneration that is related to and dependent on the value growth they contribute to creating, on corresponding terms as for the rest of the Board in accordance with LTIP 2021/2025. Furthermore, Norvestor believes that it is beneficial for the company and the shareholders that the incentive program’s participants thus are given a personal and long-term ownership commitment. Such ownership commitment is expected to stimulate increased interest in the company’s business and earnings development as a whole, as well as to increase motivation for the participants and aims to achieve increased community of interest between the participants and the company’s shareholders.

In light of the terms, the size of the allotment and other circumstances, Norvestor considers that the proposed warrant program as follows below is reasonable and beneficial for the company and its shareholders.

A. Issue of warrants to the company
Norvestor proposes that the meeting resolves to issue no more than 132,536 warrants of series 2022/2026 with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, entailing an increase in the share capital upon full exercise by no more than approximately SEK 4,908.74, subject to the following terms:

  1. With deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, the right to subscribe for the warrants shall be given the company with the right and obligation to, on one or more occasions, transfer warrants to Board members in accordance with what is stated in item B below. The company shall have no right to dispose of the warrants in any other way than as stated in the proposal in accordance with item B below. The reason for deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is that the warrants shall be used within the framework of LTIP 2022/2026.
  2. The warrants shall be subscribed for from and including 10 May 2022 up to and including 31 May 2022 on a special subscription list, with the right for the Board of Directors to extend the subscription period.
  3. The warrants are issued free of charge to the company.
  4. Each (1) warrant entitles to subscription of one (1) new share in the company during the period from and including 1 May 2026 up to and including 10 June 2026, at a subscription price corresponding to 110 percent of the volume-weighted average price of the company’s share on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market during the ten (10) trading days immediately preceding 31 May 2022. The subscription price shall be rounded to the nearest whole SEK 0.01, whereby SEK 0.005 shall be rounded upwards. According to the terms of the warrants, the period during which the warrant may be exercised may be extended if participants are prevented from exercising their warrants due to applicable laws on insider trading or equivalent. The part of the subscription price that, in the subscription of shares by support of the warrants, exceeds the shares’ quota value shall be added to the company’s unrestricted share premium reserve.
  5. New shares subscribed for by exercise of warrants entitle to dividends for the first time on the record date for dividends occurring after the registration of the new shares with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and the shares have been entered in the share register kept by Euroclear Sweden AB.
  6. The complete terms and conditions of the warrants are available on the company’s website, www.permascand.com. According to the terms of the warrants, the subscription price and the number of shares that each warrant entitles to subscription of shall be recalculated in the event of a split, reverse split, issues etc., in accordance with customary recalculation provisions, and the period for subscription based on the warrants can be brought forward.
  7. The Board of Directors, or the person appointed by the Board of Directors, shall be authorized to make the minor adjustments to the issue resolution that may prove necessary in connection with registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office or Euroclear Sweden AB.

B. Approval of transfer of warrants from the company to Board members
Norvestor proposes that the meeting resolves to approve that the company, within the framework of LTIP 2022/2026, transfers no more than 132,536 warrants of series 2022/2026 to Board members, subject to the following terms:

  1. The right to acquire warrants from the company shall be granted to Anna Alexandersson and Karl Bergman, each of whom, personally or through a wholly-owned company, has the right to acquire no more than 66,268 warrants. A participant may apply for the acquisition of a lower but not a higher number of warrants than stated for him/her above.
  2. Notice of acquisition of warrants shall be made no later than 31 May 2022. Transfer shall take place as soon as possible after the end of the notice period, provided that the participant is a member of the company at the time of the acquisition.
  3. Transfer of the warrants shall be made at a price corresponding to the market value of the warrants at the time of transfer, which shall be calculated according to Black & Scholes’ valuation method or other accepted valuation method. The valuation of warrants shall be carried out by an independent valuation institution or auditing company. In connection with the transfer of warrants to the participants, the company shall, by agreement, reserve the right to repurchase warrants if the participant’s assignment ends or if the participant in turn wishes to transfer the warrants.
  4. Payment for warrants acquired shall be made in cash no later than 1 June 2022.

Existing incentive programs

Long-term incentive program for management

The Extraordinary General Meeting in the company on 3 June 2021 resolved to issue warrants as a part of the implementation of an incentive program (“LTIP 2021/2024”) for existing and potential future senior executives and other key employees in the Group, twelve employees in total (the “Participants”). In total, LTIP 2021/2024 will comprise a maximum of 729,153 warrants.

The warrants will be issued to the Participants or a Group company and subsequently transferred to the Participants at fair market value, which will be set by PricewaterhouseCoopers in accordance with the Black & Scholes valuation method at the time of transfer. The number of warrants per Participant will vary depending on the Participant’s position within the Group. The maximum number of warrants that each of the Participants in the Executive Management will be allowed to acquire is specified in the table below.

Participant Warrants % of program
Peter Lundström 227,205 31,2 %
Fredrik Herlitz 72,292 9,9 %
Linda Ekman 72,292 9,9 %
Viktoria Lindstand 72,292 9,9 %
Lars Nyman 72,292 9,9 %
Lena Oskarsson Engberg 48,195 6,6 %
Jens Michael Povlsen 48,195 6,6 %
Erik Zimmerman 48,195 6,6 %
Louis Obaro Andrew 48,195 6,6 %
Nicholas Laroche 20,000 2,7 %
Total LTIP 2021/2024 729,153 100,0 %

The warrants can be exercised during the period 1 May – 10 June 2024. The strike price of the warrants will be SEK 40.8.

The terms and conditions of the warrants include customary recalculation provisions relating to, among other things, dividends that are distributed before the time of exercise of the warrants. The company has reserved the right to repurchase the warrants if, for example, the Participant wishes to sell the warrants to a third party or if the Participant’s employment is terminated.

Assuming that all 729,153 warrants in LTIP 2021/2024 are exercised for subscription of new shares, the share capital of the company will increase by approximately SEK 27,005.67, corresponding to approximately 1.2 percent of the company’s share capital. Since the warrants are transferred at fair market value, the company assesses that any potential costs for social charges associated with the program will be limited. The costs related to the program will accordingly mostly consist of limited costs for the implementation and administration of the program.

Long-term incentive program for the Board of Directors

The Extraordinary General Meeting in the company on 3 June 2021 resolved to issue warrants as a part of the implementation of an incentive program (“LTIP 2021/2025”) for existing directors in the company (the “Board Participants”). In total, LTIP 2021/2025 will comprise a maximum of 504,899 warrants. The warrants will be issued to a Group company and subsequently transferred to the Board Participants at fair market value, which will be set by PricewaterhouseCoopers in accordance with the Black & Scholes valuation method at the time of transfer. The maximum number of warrants that each of the Board Participants of the Board of Directors will be allowed to acquire is specified in the table below.

Participant Warrants % of program
Per Lindberg 151,470 30,0 %
Johan Karlsson 88,357 17,5 %
Ingar Jensen 66,268 13,1 %
Marie Grönberg 66,268 13,1 %
Pernilla Lundin 66,268 13,1 %
Mario Houde 66,268 13,1 %
Total LTIP 2021/2025 504,899 100,0 %

The warrants can be exercised during the period 1 May – 10 June 2025. The strike price of the warrants will be SEK 37.4.

The terms and conditions of the warrants include customary recalculation provisions relating to, among other things, dividends that are distributed before the time of exercise of the warrants. The company has reserved the right to repurchase the warrants if, for example, the Board Participant wishes to sell the warrants to a third party or if the Board Participant’s Board assignment is terminated.

Assuming that all 504,899 warrants in LTIP 2021/2025 are exercised for subscription of new shares, the share capital of the company will increase by approximately SEK 18,699.96, corresponding to 0.9 percent of the company’s share capital.

Since the warrants are transferred at fair market value, the company assesses that any potential costs for social charges associated with the program will be limited. The costs related to the program will accordingly mostly consist of limited costs for the implementation and administration of the program.

Dilution effects, costs etc.

As of the date of the proposal, there are 59,313,529 shares in the company. If all warrants that can be issued and transferred are exercised for subscription of shares, the number of shares and votes in the company will increase by no more than 132,536 (subject to any recalculation of the number of shares in accordance with the terms of the warrants) corresponding to a dilution of the share capital and votes in the company of approximately 0.2 percent. The warrants are expected to have a marginal effect on the company’s key performance indicators.

Assuming issue and full allotment of the proposed warrants and that the market value per warrant corresponds to approximately SEK 4.9 (according to a preliminary valuation assuming a price of SEK 30.4 per share, a subscription price of SEK 33.4 per share corresponding to 110 percent of the price, a ceiling of SEK 68.4 corresponding to 225 percent of the price, a risk-free interest rate of 0.39 percent and a volatility of 27.5 percent), the income from the proceeds received from the transfers of the warrants is estimated to exceed the costs, which are estimated to be insignificant, in the creation of the program. When transferring warrants to participants, the market value will be determined based on updated assumptions and then known parameters.

Preparation of the proposal

The proposed resolution on adoption of the warrant-based incentive program and the proposed resolutions under items A and B above have been prepared by a shareholder in consultation with external advisors.
