STOCKHOLM, Sweden, 24 May 2021: The shareholders of Lipidor AB (publ) reg. no. 556779-7500 (the “Company” or “Lipidor”) are hereby given notice of the Extraordinary General Meeting (the “EGM”) to be held on 8 June 2021.

N.B. This is an unofficial translation of the original Swedish notice. In case of discrepancies, the Swedish version shall prevail.

Lipidor welcomes all shareholders to exercise their voting rights at the EGM through advance voting as described below. Information on the resolutions passed at the EGM will be published on 8 June 2021 as soon as the result of the advance voting has been finally confirmed.

The shareholders may request in the advance voting form that a resolution on one or several of the matters on the proposed agenda below should be deferred to a so-called continued general meeting, which cannot be conducted solely by way of advance voting. Such general meeting shall take place if the EGM so resolves or if shareholders representing at least one tenth of all shares in the Company so requests.

Shareholders whose shares are registered in the name of a nominee/custodian must register their shares in their own names in order to be entitled to participate in the EGM. Such registration, which may be temporary, must be effected no later than on 2 June 2021 and shareholders must, therefore, instruct their nominees well in advance thereof.

Resolution on approval of Emollivet AB’s resolution on an issue of warrants to the management in Emollivet AB (item 6)

The Annual General Meeting of the Company’s subsidiary Emollivet AB (“Emollivet” or the “Subsidiary”) resolved on 19 May 2021 to issue a maximum of 50 warrants of series 2021/2026 with deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights as part of an incentive program to the management of the Subsidiary (the “LTI 2021”). The resolution in the Subsidiary was conditional upon a general meeting in the Company resolving to approve the Subsidiary’s resolution on implementing LTI 2021. The Board of Directors of Lipidor therefore proposes that the general meeting resolves to approve the resolution of LTI 2021 in Emollivet in accordance with the following:

  1. a maximum of 50 warrants shall be issued. Each warrant shall entitle to the subscription of one share in Emollivet;
  2. the right to subscribe for warrants shall, with deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights, only be granted to a maximum of three employees in Emollivet. Each person shall be entitled to subscribe for a maximum of 20 warrants in accordance with the Board of Directors of the Subsidiary’s instructions. The subscribers entitled to the above have the right to acquire the warrants through a wholly owned company;
  3. subscription of warrants shall be made on a subscription list on 30 June 2021 at the latest. The Board of Directors of the Subsidiary shall be entitled to extend the subscription period;
  4. payment for the warrants shall be made no later than 14 calendar days after the subscription has taken place. The Board of Directors of the Subsidiary shall be entitled to extend the payment period;
  5. the warrants shall be issued on market terms at a price per warrant determined on the basis of a calculated market value for the warrants using the Black & Scholes valuation model;
  6. the exercise period for the warrants shall be from 1 January 2026 up to and including 30 June 2026;
  7. the maximum amount that the share capital can be increased by is SEK 5,000;
  8. the subscription price per share shall be SEK 10,000. Any premium shall be transferred to the Subsidiary’s unrestricted share premium account;
  9. shares acquired as a result of subscription entitle the holder to a dividend for the first time on the record date for the dividend, which occurs after the new shares have been registered in Emollivet’s share register;
  10. the chairman of the Board of Directors’ of Emollivet, or the person he designates, is authorized to make minor adjustments to the resolution and the conditions that may prove necessary in connection with registration and execution.

The full terms and conditions for the warrants are set out in the complete proposal.

The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights is that the Board of Directors of the Subsidiary wishes to offer the subscribers to take part in Emollivet’s future value growth. A long-term financial interest in Emollivet is believed to stimulate interest in Emollivet’s activities, increase motivation and strengthen involvement in Emollivet. Thus, the Board of Directors of the Subsidiary considers it to be beneficial for the Subsidiary and its shareholders that the subscribers in this way are offered to acquire warrants in Emollivet.

A full subscription and exercise of all the warrants in LTI 2021 will result in a dilution effect of approximately 2.5 percent of the total current number of shares and votes in Emollivet, however, with reservation to any potential recalculation in accordance with the full terms and conditions for the warrants.

Since subscription of the warrants takes place at market value, Emollivet is not affected by social security costs. Therefore, with the exception of administrative costs, the issue does not result in any costs for Emollivet. Thus, there is no need to take any hedging measures.

As the resolution falls under chapter 16 of the Swedish Companies Act it is conditional upon the approval of the general meeting in Emollivet’s parent company, Lipidor AB (publ).

Resolution on approval of Emollivet AB’s resolution on an issue of warrants to members of the Board of Directors in Emollivet AB (item 7)

The Annual General Meeting of the Subsidiary resolved to on 19 May 2021, after a proposal from Lipidor, to issue a maximum of 50 warrants of series 2021/2026 with deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights as part of an incentive program to the members of the Board of Directors in the Subsidiary (the “Board program”). The resolution in the Subsidiary was conditional upon the general meeting in the Company resolving to approve the Subsidiary’s resolution to implement the Board program. The Board of Directors of Lipidor therefore proposes that the general meeting resolves to approve the resolution of LTI 2021 in Emollivet in accordance with the following:

  1. a maximum of 50 warrants shall be issued. Each warrant shall entitle to the subscription of one share in Emollivet;
  2. the right to subscribe for warrants shall, with deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights, only be granted to the members of the Board of Directors that are elected on the Annual General Meeting 2021 in Emollivet, whereby the chairman of the board shall be entitled to subscribe for a maximum of 20 warrants and the other members of the Board of Directors shall be entitled to subscribe for a maximum of 10 warrants each. The subscribers entitled to the above have the right to acquire the warrants through a wholly owned company;
  3. subscription of warrants shall be made on a subscription list on 30 June 2021 at the latest;
  4. payment for the warrants shall be made no later than 14 calendar days after the subscription has taken place;
  5. the warrants shall be issued on market terms at a price per warrant determined on the basis of a calculated market value for the warrants using the Black & Scholes valuation model;
  6. the exercise period for the warrants shall be from 1 January 2026 up to and including 30 June 2026;
  7. the maximum amount that the share capital can be increased by is SEK 5,000;
  8. the subscription price per share shall be SEK 10,000. Any premium shall be transferred to the Subsidiary’s unrestricted share premium account;
  9. shares acquired as a result of subscription entitle the holder to a dividend for the first time on the record date for the dividend, which occurs after the new shares have been registered in Emollivet’s share register.

The full terms and conditions for the warrants are set out in the complete proposal.

The reason for the deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights is that it is deemed appropriate that the members of the Board of Directors of the Subsidiary are offered the opportunity to take part in Emollivet’s future value growth. A long-term financial interest in Emollivet is believed to stimulate interest in Emollivet’s activities, increase motivation and strengthen involvement in Emollivet. Thus, the proposer of the resolution considers it to be beneficial for the Subsidiary and its shareholders that the members of the Board of Directors of the Subsidiary in this way are offered to acquire warrants in Emollivet.

A full subscription and exercise of all the warrants in the Board program will result in a dilution effect of approximately 2.5 percent of the total current number of shares and votes in Emollivet, however, with reservation to any potential recalculation in accordance with the full terms and conditions for the warrants.

Since subscription of the warrants takes place at market value, Emollivet is not affected by social security costs. Therefore, with the exception of administrative costs, the issue does not result in any costs for Emollivet. Thus, there is no need to take any hedging measures.

As the resolution falls under chapter 16 of the Swedish Companies Act it is conditional upon the approval of the general meeting in Emollivet’s parent company, Lipidor AB (publ).
