The Meeting approved the Board of Directors’ proposal to authorise the Board to make decisions on one or more occasions until the next AGM, to repurchase that total number of shares such that the company’s holdings do not exceed 10 per cent of all the shares of the company at any time. Repurchases of shares shall be on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm, and may only be executed at a price within the quoted price interval on each occasion, which means the interval between the highest bid price and lowest offer price. The purpose of this authorisation is for the Board to attain the flexibility to enable decision-making regarding an altered capital structure on a continuous basis, and thus contribute to increased shareholder value.
