DIVIDEND (item 10 (b))

The Board of Directors has proposed that a dividend of SEK 9.50 per share for 2023 shall be declared. It is proposed that the dividend shall be paid in two partial payments for a more favourable adaptation to the group’s cash flow profile. The Board of Directors has proposed 30 April 2024 as record date for the first payment of SEK 4.75 per share and 7 October 2024 as record date for the second payment of SEK 4.75 per share. If the AGM resolves in accordance with the proposal, the first payment by Euroclear is expected to start on 6 May 2024 and the second payment on 10 October 2024.


The Board of Directors proposes that the AGM resolves to authorise the Board of Directors to, on one or more occasions during the period up until the next AGM, resolve to issue new shares. Such issue may take place with or without deviation from the shareholders' preferential right and with or without provisions on payment in kind or set-off or other terms. The number of shares to be issued by virtue of the authorisation shall not exceed 10 per cent of the registered share capital at the time of the resolution to issue new shares. The Board of Directors shall be entitled to determine other terms and conditions of the issue, including the issue price. In case of deviation from the shareholders’ preferential right, the subscription price shall be determined in accordance with market conditions.

The purpose of the authorisation is to increase the company's financial flexibility. If the Board of Directors resolves on an issue with deviation from the shareholders' preferential right, the reason may be to add new capital and/or new owners of strategic importance to the company and/or carry out acquisitions of other companies or businesses or parts thereof.

The Board of Directors, or the person appointed by the Board of Directors, is authorised to make such minor adjustments to the resolution of the general meeting that may be necessary in connection with registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

A valid resolution requires that the proposal is supported by shareholders representing at least two thirds of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the meeting.

The company’s financial statements, auditor’s report and other documents which must be kept available for shareholders in accordance with the Swedish Companies Act will be available at the company and on the company’s website,, from Friday 5 April 2024 at the latest and will be sent free of charge to shareholders who so request and state their postal address.

At the time of this notice, the total number of shares and votes in the company amounts to 105,733,097. The company holds no own shares.


The Board of Directors and the CEO shall, if any shareholder so request and the Board of Directors believes that it can be done without material harm to the company, at the meeting provide information regarding circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda, 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.
