Closing of the meeting Board proposals Approval of the resolution by the Board of Directors to issue convertible bonds (item 7) The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to approve the Board of Directors' resolution on 19 June 2014 to raise a loan at a par value of not more than SEK 20,000,000 and, subject to the shareholders’ meeting approval of the conversion right, that the loan shall be convertible into ordinary shares of the Company. The following terms and conditions shall apply to the convertible bonds: 1. The convertible bonds may, with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, be subscribed for by a limited number of international and qualified investors in Sweden as designated by Redeye, acting as financial advisor to the Company in connection with the offering. 2. The convertible bonds shall be issued and subscribed for at a price equal to 100 percent of their principal amount. 3. The loan shall bear interest at a fixed rate of 8.00 per cent. The interest falls due on 16 January 2015. 4. The convertible bonds shall be subscribed for not later than 4 July 2014. However, the Board of Directors shall have the right to extend the subscription period. 5. The convertible bonds shall be paid in cash not later than 4 July 2014. However, the Board of Directors shall have the right to postpone the settlement date. 6. Bondholders are entitled to convert, at any time during the period from 1 July 2014 up to and including 6 February 2015, all or part of the loan amount into ordinary shares of the Company. The conversion price per share shall initially be SEK 100. However, during the period from 2 February 2015 up to and including 6 February 2015, the conversion price per share shall be an amount equal to 85 per cent of the volume-weighted average share price of the share as derived from NASDAQ OMX Stockholm during the period from 19 January 2015 up to and including 30 January 2015, however, not lower than SEK 0.10. 7. The total amount by which the share capital may be increased on account of the conversion of the convertible bonds shall – at the lowest conversion price of SEK 0.10 – amount to not more than SEK 40,000,000. 8. The terms and conditions for the convertible bonds include provisions for the recalculation of the conversion price and the adjustment of the conversion price on the occurrence of certain corporate events. The terms and conditions also contain provisions on redemption of the convertible bonds at the opinion of the Company and on the occurrence of certain events. 9. The loan falls due on 27 February 2015 to the extent the conversion has not taken place before such date. 10. New shares issued upon conversion of the convertible bonds shall entitle the holder thereof to participate in the distribution of dividend for the first time on the record day that occurs immediately following the registration of the new shares in the Company’s share register. The purpose of the offering is to strengthen the working capital of the Anoto group. The reason for deviating from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to broaden the shareholder base and ensure further financing of the Anoto group in a short timeframe. The size of the offering, issue price, coupon and conversion price were determined on the basis of a bookbuilding carried out on 18 June 2014. The Board of Directors also resolved to authorise the CEO to make such adjustments of the resolution as may prove required in connection with the registration of the convertible bonds with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and Euroclear. If the Board of Directors’ resolution to issue the convertible bonds is not approved by the General Meeting, any outstanding convertible bonds will constitute bonds without right to be converted into ordinary shares of the Company. Upon exercise of conversion rights, the Company will instead pay a cash amount corresponding to the value of the underlying shares to be calculated pursuant to the terms and conditions of the convertible bonds. A valid resolution by the General Meeting pursuant to the proposal above requires that the resolution be supported by shareholders representing at least two-thirds of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the General Meeting. Resolution to amend the Articles of Association (item 8) The Board of Directors proposes that § 4 of the Articles of Association regarding the limits of the share capital is amended from the current minimum of SEK 3,400,000 and maximum SEK 13,600,000 to minimum SEK 9,000,000 and maximum SEK 36,000,000. The Board of Directors also proposes that § 5 of the Articles of Association regarding the limits on the number of shares is amended from the current minimum of 170,000,000 and maximum 680,000,000 to minimum 450,000,000 shares and maximum 1,800,000,000 shares. A valid resolution by the General Meeting pursuant to the proposal above requires that the resolution be supported by shareholders representing at least two-thirds of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the General Meeting. Resolution to issue new shares with preferential rights for the shareholders (item 9) The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting resolves to increase the share capital of the Company with up to SEK 5,440,242.40 by issue of up to 272,012,120 new shares. The shareholders of the Company shall have preferential rights to subscribe for the new shares in proportion to the shares previously owned, whereby five existing shares entitle the holder to subscribe for three new shares. For each share held on the record date, the shareholders will receive one subscription right. Five subscription rights entitle the holder to subscribe for three new shares. If not all shares are subscribed for by the exercise of subscription rights, the Board of Directors shall decide on the allotment of shares subscribed for without the exercise of subscription rights up to the maximum amount of the rights issue, and the Board of Directors shall firstly allot shares to those that also subscribed for shares by exercising subscription rights and, in case of oversubscription, in proportion to the number of subscription rights used for subscription of shares; secondly, to others that have subscribed for shares without exercising subscription rights and, in case they cannot receive full allotment, in proportion to the number of shares that each has subscribed for, and where this is not possible by drawing of lots; thirdly, provided that such allotment is necessary in order for the rights issue to be fully subscribed for, to the guarantors of the rights issue, allotted in proportion to their subscriptions of shares (based on their respective subscription undertakings). The record date for determining which shareholders shall be entitled to subscribe for new shares on a preferential basis shall be 24 October 2014. The subscription price is SEK 0.25 per share.
