- Proposals by the supervisory board:
Proposed amendment to the articles of association: Class B-shares to be converted from bearer shares to registered shares
The supervisory board proposes an amendment to the articles of association so that the company's Class B-shares are converted from bearer shares to registered shares. The reason for the proposal is twofold: 1) as of 1 July 2015, no new bearer shares may be issued, and 2) the transitional provision associated with the amended statutes concerning existing powers to make capital increases will cease to apply on 1 July 2016, meaning that the powers conferred on the supervisory board under article 7C cannot be exercised after 1 July 2016 since – in their current form – they apply to bearer shares.
The following amendments to the articles of association are proposed:
- Article 3, third paragraph, to read as follows: 'Class B-shares are registered with VP Securities A/S (the Danish Securities Centre) and must be registered in the name of the holder and must be registered shares only'.
- Article 4, third paragraph, to be deleted: 'whether or not they shall be bearer shares or registered shares'.
- Article 7C, sub-article 4, first sentence to read as follows: 'New Class B-shares issued in accordance with 7C(1) and 7C(2) will be registered through VP Securities A/S and will be registered in the name of the holder'.
Proposed extensions of time: Change from 2019 to 2020
- Article 7C(1), authorisation of the supervisory board to increase the share capital by issuing new Class B-shares, conferring pre-emption rights on the company's existing shareholders, for a total nominal value not exceeding DKK 2,622,118, by cash contributions, to be extended to 1 August 2020.
- Article 7C(2), authorisation of the supervisory board to increase the share capital by issuing new Class B-shares for a total nominal value not exceeding DKK 2,622,118 by non-cash contributions and without pre-emption rights being granted to existing shareholders, to be extended to 1 August 2020.
- Article 7D, authorisation of the supervisory board to acquire treasury shares with a nominal value of up to 10% of the share capital, valid until the annual general meeting in 2020, however latest on 31 August 2020.
- Any other business.
