Notice of Annual General Meeting in Starbreeze AB (publ)
The shareholders of Starbreeze AB (publ), 556551–8932, are given notice of the Annual General Meeting to be held on Wednesday 12 May 2021.
In the light of the ongoing corona pandemic and in order to minimize any risk of spreading of the corona virus, the Board of Directors has decided that the Annual General Meeting is to be held only through postal voting in accordance with temporary legislation. This means that the Annual General Meeting will be conducted without the physical presence of shareholders, representatives or external parties and that shareholders will only be able to exercise their voting rights by postal voting in advance of the Annual General Meeting in the manner described below.
Information on the resolutions passed at the meeting will be disclosed on 12 May 2021, as soon as the outcome of the postal voting has been finally confirmed.

Such registration may be temporary (so-called voting rights registration), and request for such voting rights registration shall be made to the nominee, in accordance with the nominee’s routines, at such a time in advance as decided by the nominee. Voting rights registrations that have been made by the nominee no later than Thursday 6 May 2021 will be taken into account in the presentation of the share register.

Annual General Meetings
The shareholders exercise their influence over the company at the annual general meeting (AGM), which is the Company’s highest decision-making body. All shareholders registered in the share register kept by Euroclear Sweden AB on the record date and entered in a book-entry system or CSD account have the right to participate in person or represented by proxy. The AGM is empowered to decide on any matter that concerns the Company and which is not expressly under the exclusive competence of another corporate body pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act or the Articles of Association. The AGM may, for example, resolve to increase or decrease share capital, amend the Articles of Association, or that the Company should be wound up. As regards the new issue of shares, convertible instruments or warrants, the AGM may decide on these matters directly or authorize the board of directors to decide whether to carry out the issue. Each shareholder, regardless of the size of the holding, has the right to have a specified item on the agenda of the annual general meeting. Shareholders wishing to exercise this right must submit a written request to the Company’s board of directors. Such requests must normally be received by the board of directors in sufficient time for the item to be included in the notice of meeting.
The AGM is held annually within six months of the end of the financial year. The Code establishes that the chairman of the board, as many directors as required for a quorum and the chief executive officer must attend the general meeting. The chairman of the meeting is nominated by the nomination committee and elected by the meeting. The tasks of the general meeting include electing the Company’s board of directors and auditors, adopting the Company’s balance sheet and income statement, deciding on appropriation of profits or losses in accordance with the adopted balance sheet, and deciding on discharge of liability for the directors and the chief executive officer. The meeting also decides the fees to be paid to directors and the Company’s auditors.
The board of directors may call an extraordinary general meeting when it deems there is reason to hold a meeting before the next annual general meeting. The board is also required to call an extraordinary general meeting if the statutory auditor or a shareholder minority representing at least ten percent of the company’s shares so requests, in order to address a specific matter.
Notices of general meetings must be made through advertisement in Post- och Inrikes Tidningar and on the company’s website. On the date notice is made, information that notice has been issued must be advertised in Dagens Industri. Notices of ordinary general meetings and extraordinary general meetings at which amendments to the Articles of Association will be addressed must be issued no earlier than six (6) weeks and no later than four (4) weeks before the general meeting. Notices of other extraordinary general meetings must be issued no earlier than six (6) weeks before and no later than three (3) weeks before the general meeting. The minutes of the meeting must be available on the Company’s website no later than two weeks after the meeting.
