The Extraordinary General Meeting of Componenta Corporation, held on 16 August 2013, resolved to authorise the Board of Directors, in accordance with its proposal, to resolve on a share issue and an issue of special rights entitling to shares as referred to in Chapter 10, Section 1 of the Limited Liability Companies Act in one or several instalments, either against payment or without payment. The aggregate amount of shares to be issued, including the shares to be received based on special rights, shall not exceed 2,500,000 shares. The maximum amount of the authorisation corresponds approximately to 11 per cent of all the shares in the company. The maximum amount of the authorisation and the authorisation to resolve on a share issue and issue of special rights entitling to shares, amounting to maximum 7,500,000 shares given to the Board of Directors by the Annual General Meeting of shareholders on 22 March 2013, correspond together approximately to 45 per cent of all the shares in the company. The Board of Directors may resolve to issue either new shares or to transfer treasury shares potentially held by the company.
The authorisation entitles the Board of Directors to resolve on all conditions for the share issue and the issue of special rights entitling to shares, including the right to derogate from the pre-emptive right of the shareholders. The authorisation may be used to strengthen the balance sheet and financial position of the company or to other purposes to be resolved on by the Board of Directors.
The authorisation is in force until the next Annual General Meeting, however no longer than until 30 June 2014. The authorisation does not cancel the earlier authorisation to resolve on a share issue and issue of special rights entitling to shares given to the Board of Directors by the Annual General Meeting of shareholders on 22 March 2013.
