The AGM voted in favor of adopting the income statements and balance sheets for the Group and the parent company for the financial year 2019, and decided that no dividend should be declared for the financial year 2019.
The AGM discharged the Board members and the CEO from liability, re-elected the Board members Dharminder Chahal, An van Es Johansson, Leonard Kruimer and Bernd Seizinger, and elected Kristoffer Bissessar as new Board member. Leonard Kruimer was elected Chairman of the Board. The auditing firm KPMG AB was re-elected as the company's auditor for a term of two years, with Linda Bengtsson as auditor in charge.
The AGM resolved that the Board's fee unchanged shall amount to SEK 682,500 to the Chairman of the Board and SEK 305,500 to each of the other Board members, who are not employed by the company. In addition hereto, the AGM resolved on fees for committee work of SEK 57,500 to the Chairman of the Audit Committee, SEK 46,000 to each of the other members of the Audit Committee and SEK 57,500 to the Chairman of the Scientific Committee and that no fee for work in the Remuneration Committee shall be paid. Fee for committee work shall not be paid to the Chairman of the Board.
The AGM resolved, in accordance with the Board's proposal, on guidelines for remuneration to senior executives.
Further, the AGM resolved, in accordance with the Board's proposal, to amend to the Articles of Association for the purpose of adapting it to implemented and excepted amendments of the Swedish Companies Act and the Act on Account-Keeping of Financial Instruments, and to adjust the limits of the share capital.
Last, the AGM authorised the Board of Directors to resolve on the issue of new shares, on one or several occasions during the period up to the next annual general meeting. The number of shares to be issued by virtue of the authorization shall not entail a dilution effect of more than 20 per cent of the registered share capital after completed issue. The issue may take place with or without a deviation from the shareholders' preferential right and with or without provisions on contribution in kind or set-off or any other terms. The purpose of the authorisation is to increase the company's financial flexibility and enable acquisitions by payment of shares. If the Board resolves on an issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential right the reason may be to add new capital and/or new company owners of strategic importance to the company and/or the acquisition of other companies or businesses. At a deviation from the shareholders' preferential right, the issue rate shall be determined in accordance with market conditions. Other terms may be resolved by the Board.
