Upon request by any shareholder and where the board deems it possible without causing significant harm to the company, the board and the CEO shall, at the meeting, provide information in respect of any circumstances which may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda and any circumstances which may affect the assessment of the company's or a subsidiary's financial position or the company's relationship to other group companies.

Proposed agenda

1. Opening of the meeting.
2. Election of a chairman of the meeting.
3. Preparation and approval of the voting register.
4. Election of one or more persons to check and verify the minutes.
5. Determination of whether the meeting was duly convened.
6. Approval of the proposed agenda.
7. Presentation of the annual report and auditor's report and the consolidated financial statements and auditor's report for the group.
8. Resolutions regarding:
   a) Adoption of the income statement and balance sheet and the consolidated income statement and consolidated balance sheet.
   b) Allocation of the company's result according to the adopted balance sheet and the adopted consolidated balance sheet and if resolution on dividend, determination of record date for dividend.
   c) Discharge from liability for board members and the CEO.
9. Determination of fees for the board of directors and the auditors.
10. Election of board members and auditors.

Proposal regarding allocation of the company's result according to the adopted balance sheet and the adopted consolidated balance sheet and if resolution on dividend, record date for dividend (item 8 b).

The board proposes that of unappropriated earnings of EUR 303,752,970, a dividend of EUR 0.6 per share shall be paid, corresponding to a total amount of EUR 18,660,000. The board proposes a dividend of EUR 0.2 per share and per annual quarter. This sums up to EUR 0.8 per share distributed over a full calendar year. The board however proposes, at this annual general meeting, an amendment to the company's articles of association to change the company's financial year from broken to a calendar year. If the annual general meeting resolves to change the company's financial year in accordance with the board's proposal this means, considering that the board intends to apply a shortened financial year for the period 1 July 2018 - 31 December 2018, that the next annual general meeting will be held in spring 2019. Since an annual general meeting cannot decide on a record date for dividend at a date occurring after the next upcoming annual general meeting, the board proposes that this annual general meeting resolves on three quarterly dividends of each EUR 0.2 per share, i.e. in total EUR 0.6 per share.  

The board further proposes that the record dates for dividends are 22 October 2018, 28 December 2018 and 29 March 2019 and expected dates for payment are 29 October 2018, 8 January 2019 and 5 April 2019.

Election of chairman of the meeting, election of number of board members and auditors, determination of fees for the board of directors and the auditors and election of board members and auditors (items 2, 9 and 10)

The shareholders SFC Holding S.À R.L. and Sirius Capital Partners (the "main shareholders"), representing in aggregate 42.9% of all shares and votes in the company, has proposed the following proposals to the meeting.

  • To elect lawyer Fredrik Lundén as chairman of the annual general meeting (item 2).
  • The number of board members shall be extended to 4 (item 10).
  • Fees to the board members for the period until the close of the next annual general meeting shall be EUR 48,000 in total, of which EUR 24 000 each shall be paid to Elisabeth Norman and Johanna Skogestig and EUR 0 shall be paid to the other board members (item 9).
  • Re-election of Patrick Gylling and Elisabeth Norman and election of Jonas Ahlblad and Johanna Skogestig as new board members for the period until the end of the next annual general meeting. Patrick Gylling is proposed as chairman of the board (item 10).

  • The auditor's fee shall be paid in accordance with approved invoices (item 9).
