The number of class A shares to be issued based on the authorization may in total amount to a maximum of 5,000,000 shares.

The Board of Directors decides on all the terms and conditions of the issuances of shares. The authorization concerns both the issuance of new shares as well as transfer of treasury shares. The issuance of shares may be carried out in deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights (directed issue), if there is a weighty financial reason for the company.

The authorization cancels the authorization granted by the Extraordinary General Meeting on 9 March 2016 to decide on the issuance of shares.

The authorization is valid until 30 June 2018.

Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide on issuance of options

The number of new class A shares that can be subscribed to based on the options that can be issued on basis of the authorization may in total amount to a maximum of 1,200,000 shares.

The options may be issued to the key personnel, including members of the Board of Directors of the company, and to cooperation partners and advisors of the company as part of the company's incentive scheme to be established by the Board of Directors. The options shall be divided into three equal-size tranches A, B and C:

-        Tranche A: Share subscription period shall be 1 January 2020 – 31 December 2022 and the original subscription price EUR 2.74. However, the share subscription period for tranche A shall not begin prior to the trade volume weighted average quotation of the company’s class A share on First North Finland has been not less than EUR 4.00 during four (4) consecutive weeks.

-        Tranche B: Share subscription period shall be 1 January 2021 – 31 December 2022 and the original subscription price EUR 2.74. However, the share subscription period for tranche B shall not begin prior to the trade volume weighted average quotation of the company’s class A share on First North Finland has been not less than EUR 5.00 during four (4) consecutive weeks.

-        Tranche C: Share subscription period shall be 1 January 2022 – 31 December 2022 and the original subscription price EUR 2.74. However, the share subscription period for tranche C shall not begin prior to the trade volume weighted average quotation of the company’s class A share on First North Finland has been not less than EUR 6.00 during four (4) consecutive weeks.

The original share subscription price for the options is equal to the subscription price per share used in the previous share issue of the company.

Should the company distribute dividends or assets from reserves of unrestricted equity, the original share subscription price of the stock options shall be decreased by the amount of the dividend and the amount of the distributable unrestricted equity decided before share subscription, as per the dividend record date or the record date of the repayment of equity. The weighted average quotation, which constitutes the precondition for beginning of the share subscription period, shall in this case be decreased by a percentage corresponding to the decrease in the equity of the company following the distribution of assets.

Should the company reduce its share capital by distributing share capital to the shareholders, the original share subscription price of the stock options shall be decreased by the amount of the distributable share capital decided before share subscription, as per the record date of the repayment of share capital. The weighted average quotation, which constitutes the precondition for beginning of the share subscription period, shall in this case be decreased by a percentage corresponding to the decrease in the equity of the company following the distribution of assets.

The Board of Directors decides on the effects of a potential partial demerger on the options and the terms and conditions of the options, including the share subscription price.

The Board of Directors resolves the persons receiving the options and all other terms and conditions of the options. However, the General Meeting resolves on granting of options to members of the Board of Directors should the options be remuneration for membership in the Board of Directors. For the avoidance of doubt, the Board of Directors may resolve on granting of options to members of the Board of Directors who are also working for the company in an operative role or as an advisor, if the options are granted based on their operative or advisor role in the company.

The authorization cancels the authorization granted by the Extraordinary General Meeting on 9 March 2016 to decide on the issuance of options and other special rights entitling to shares.

The authorization is valid until 21 April 2022.

The Board of Directors is authorized to repurchase a maximum of 1,145,000 company's own class A shares and/or accept company's own class A shares as pledge on the company's unrestricted equity. This amount corresponds to approximately 5.0 per cent of the company's shares.

The acquisition may take place in one or more instalments. The purchase price shall not be lower than the lowest price paid for the company's class A shares in multilateral trading on the acquisition date and shall not be higher than the highest price paid for the company's class A shares in multilateral trading on the acquisition date. In connection with the execution of the acquisition of own shares derivatives, share lending or other contracts customary to capital markets and permitted by laws and regulations may be entered into at price determined by the markets. The authorization entitles the Board of Directors to decide on the acquisition in deviation from the shareholders’ shareholding (directed acquisition).

Shares may be repurchased to be used as consideration in possible acquisitions or other business arrangements of the company, to finance investments, as part of the company's incentive scheme or to be retained, otherwise conveyed or cancelled.
