Warrants programs 2015/2018 and 2015/2019
The annual general meeting held 12 November 2015 resolved in favor of an additional special share-based incentive program for senior management personnel and certain other key individuals aimed at managing new recruitments and pro-motions. A total of 3,500,000 warrants, conferring the right to subscribe for 3,500,000 Class B shares, were issued to one of the Company’s subsidiaries. The annual general meeting approved the transfer by the subsidiary of the warrants to senior management personnel and certain other key individuals against payment of the market value of the warrants estab-lished in accordance with a Black & Scholes options pricing formula from time to time.
Half of the warrants may be exercised up to 30 November 2018 at a strike price of 200 percent of the average share price during the ten trading days subsequent to 12 November 2015 (SEK 29.10). The other half of the warrants may be exercised up to 30 November 2019 at a strike price of 240 percent of the average share price during the ten trading days subsequent to 12 November 2015 (SEK 34.92).

The dilution effect for the issued warrants is approximately 0.63 percent, of which approximately 0.63 percent remains to be exercised for subscription of shares by warrant holders.
