- AlzeCure Pharma shall offer a market-based payment that enables competent senior executives to be recruited and retained.
- The remuneration to the managing director and other senior executives may consist of basic salary, variable remuneration, other benefits and pension.
- The basic salary forms the basis of the total remuneration and shall be proportionate to the senior executive's responsibilities and powers.
- The variable remuneration may not exceed an amount corresponding to six monthly salaries for each senior executive.
- The period of notice must be at least three months upon termination on the initiative of the senior executive and in the event of termination by the company between three and twelve months.
Resolution on issue of warrants 2020/2023 (CEO)
The annual general meeting resolved, in accordance with the board of directors' proposal, to issue up to 300,000 warrants, with deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive right, to the CEO of the company. As a result of the resolution, the company's share capital may increase by a maximum of SEK 7,500.00.
The reason for the deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive rights is that the shareholders assesses that it is beneficial for the company and its shareholders that the members of the board of directors are offered to subscribe for warrants through a warrant program. A personal long-term ownership commitment stimulates to an increased interest in the business and the company's performance and increases the motivation and the feeling of affinity with the company.
The warrants shall be transferred on market terms at a price determined with the Black & Scholes pricing model. Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one new share in the company, each with a quota value of SEK 0.025. In addition, customary terms and conditions shall apply to the warrants.
Authorisation for the board of directors to resolve on new issues
The annual general meeting resolved, in accordance with the board of directors' proposal, to authorise the board of directors, on one or more occasions during the period until the next annual general meeting, with or without deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive right, to resolve on new issues of shares, warrants and/or convertibles that means issuing, subscribing to or converting a number of shares corresponding to a maximum dilution of 20 per cent of the total number of shares in the company at the time of the resolution. The new issues can be carried out with or without a provision regarding contribution in kind, set-off or other provisions referred to in Chapter 13, Section 5, first paragraph 6, Chapter 14, Section 5, first paragraph 6 and Chapter 15, Section 5, first paragraph 4, of the Swedish Companies Act.
The purpose of the authorisation is to increase the company's financial flexibility and the board of directors' scope of action.
