Significant events during Q2
At the General Meeting it was decided to adopt two long-term incentive programs: one for the Board of Directors, consisting of warrants (LTI 2021/2024), and another one for the employees consisting of employee stock options (LTI 2021:1).
The warrant program LTI 2018/2021 has also closed, and all warrants were exercised. The warrant program was assigned to the Board of Directors and consisted of 200 000 warrants, with a vesting period during 26 April – 26 May 2021. To finance the share subscription, the warrant holders have sold 120 000 warrants to a long-term investor, who has also exercised the warrants. The exercise price was 11 SEK per share, hence 2.2 mSEK was added to Ziccum through the share subscriptions. The exercised warrants increased the number of shares and votes with 200 000 and the total amount of shares is hereby 9 806 200.
