Authorization for the Board to resolve on a new issue of ordinary shares with preferential rights for the shareholders. (item 7 on the proposed agenda)
The Board proposes that the Board shall be authorized, until the next Annual General Meeting in Collector AB (publ), to resolve on a new issue of ordinary shares with preferential rights for the existing shareholders (the "Rights Issue"). The net proceeds from the Rights Issue will be used to strengthen the company’s capital base.
By making use of the authorization, the Board shall have the right to execute the Rights Issue with total proceeds of approximately SEK 1 billion through the issuance of, no more than, so many shares that at any time are within the maximum number of shares determined in the Articles of Association and thereby increase the share capital by, no more than, an amount that at any time is within the maximum share capital determined in the Articles of Association. The authorization includes the right to resolve on an issue of new shares to be paid in cash, and the Board may, if it deems it appropriate, allow shares to be paid by way of set-off. The record date for determining the right to receive subscription rights, the subscription period and the subscription price will be determined, and made public, by the Board in connection with the Board's resolution regarding the Rights Issue by virtue of this authorization. The same applies to, inter alia, the number of subscription rights each share shall entitle to as well as to the number of subscription rights that will be required to subscribe for one new ordinary share.
