The Board of Directors of HiQ International AB (publ) hereby gives notice to the Annual General Meeting (AGM), in accordance with the attached Notice.
The AGM will take place on Tuesday 22 March 2016 at 10.00 a.m. at the company’s 9th floor office at Regeringsgatan 20 in Stockholm.
At the general meeting inter alia the following proposals will be presented:
- The Board of Directors proposes that a share split 2:1 combined with a compulsory redemption procedure shall be carried out. The procedure will imply that each share will split into one ordinary share and one redemption share. The redemption share will then be redeemed for SEK 2.90 per share, representing a transfer of approximately SEK 156 million to the shareholders.
- The Nomination Committee has proposed that the following directors shall be re-elected: Gunnel Duveblad, Ken Gerhardsen, Johanna Fagrell Köhler, Lars Stugemo, Ulrika Hagdahl, Erik Hallberg and Raimo Lind. Gunnel Duveblad is proposed as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Anders Ljungh, Chairman of the Board, has declined re-election.
- The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting authorises the Board of Directors to pass a resolution on one or more occasions for the period up until the next Annual General Meeting on purchasing so many shares that the Company’s holding does not at any time exceed 10 per cent of the total number of shares in the Company.
- The Board of Directors proposes that the General Meeting adopts a resolution to issue not more than 1,000,000 warrants. The right to subscribe for the warrants shall inure to the wholly owned subsidiary HiQ Stockholm AB, which shall transfer the warrants to current and future employees of the group in Denmark, Finland and Sweden. The purpose of the proposal is to create opportunities to keep and to recruit competent employees to the HiQ group and to increase the motivation amongst the employees.
- The Board of Directors proposes that the Board of Directors shall be authorised to resolve on an issue against payment in kind of no more than 5,000,000 shares, at one or several occasions, during the period until the next Annual General Meeting in connection with acquisitions.
