In accordance with the principles for the Nomination Committee which were established at the annual general meeting 2019, the nomination committee shall consist of representatives of the four largest shareholders at the end of September each year, together with the chairman of the board. The Nomination Committee, in respect of the annual general meeting 2023, has been comprised of Mats Andersson (Abanico Invest AB as well as private holdings), Håkan Roos (Roosgruppen AB), Björn Algkvist (Fibonacci Growth Capital AB), Guðmundur Pálmason (Fortus hf.) and the chairman of the board, Bengt Baron.

The nomination committee proposes, in accordance with the audit committee’s recommendation, re-election of the registered auditing company Deloitte AB as auditor in the Company for the period until the end of the next annual general meeting. Deloitte AB has notified that, should the annual general meeting approve the proposal, the authorised public accountant Jeanette Roosberg will be the auditor-in-charge.
Item 13 – Resolution regarding authorisation of the board of directors to issue new shares
The board of directors proposes that the meeting authorises the board of directors until the next annual general meeting to, on one or more occasions, resolve to increase the Company’s share capital by issue of no more than shares corresponding to ten (10) per cent of the total number of shares in the Company at the time of the meeting’s decision of authorisation.
However, such issues may not cause the share capital in the Company to exceed the Company’s highest allowed share capital according to the articles of association. The board of directors may deviate from the shareholders’ preferential rights. The reason for the board of directors’ authorisation to deviate from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to enable the Company to raise new capital and to take advantage of future opportunities to attract new long-term owners and to finance the Company’s growth strategy. The authorisation also includes the right to decide on
payment for the issued shares by set-off, in kind or other conditions as referred in Chapter 13, section 5, item 6 of the Swedish Companies Act (Sw. aktiebolagslagen (2005:551)). At a deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, the issue rate shall be determined in accordance with market conditions, taking into account any discount on market terms.
For a valid resolution on the proposal pursuant to item 13, the proposal has to be supported by shareholders with at least two-thirds (2/3) of the votes cast as well as the shares represented at the meeting.
The complete proposals and other documents that shall be made available prior to the annual general meeting pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act will be made available at the Company and at the Company’s website, www.enzymatica.se, at least three weeks prior to the annual general meeting. The documents will also be sent free of charge to shareholders who so request and provide their address to the Company. In other respects, the board of directors’ complete proposals for resolutions are stated in the notice.
Information at the annual general meeting
The board of directors and CEO shall, if any shareholder so requests and the board of directors believes that it can be done without material harm to the Company, provide information regarding circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda and circumstances that can affect the assessment of the Company’s or its subsidiaries’ financial situation and the Company’s relation to other companies within the group.
