Employee Options Program 2013/2017
The 2013 Annual General Meeting voted in favour of establishing a new, long-term employee incentive program involving the allotment of a maximum of 900,000 employee options free of charge to all Group employees.
The employees will receive options based on their performance in the 2013, 2014 or 2015 financial years and allotment will take place in connection with the publication of the year-end financial statement for the subsequent year. Each employee option will entitle the holder to acquire 1.207 new share in BioInvent for a subscription price of SEK 2.92 during the period from the date of publication of the Company’s year-end financial statement for the 2016 financial year up to and including 1 December 2017. Subscription price and number of shares that each employee option entitles to are converted pursuant to rights issues carried out. Allotment of 100,747 employee options took place in February 2014, 74,516 employee options took place in February 2015 and 50,250 employee options in February 2016.
To guarantee BioInvent’s commitment and cover the costs associated with Employee Incentive program 2013/2017, the 2013 Annual General Meeting resolved to issue a maximum of 1,182,780 warrants to BioInvent Finans AB.
Assuming that all allotted employee options relating to Employee Incentive Program 2013/2017 are exercised for subscription of new shares and the additional warrants ensuring BioInvent’s costs in relation to the allotted employee options, the Company’s share capital will increase by SEK 28,617 equivalent to about 0.1 percent of shares and votes in the Company after full exercise.
