Alimak Group AB held its Extraordinary General Meeting on Monday, 23 January 2017. The meeting passed a resolution to authorise the Board to resolve to issue new shares.
With the share issue authorisation the Board is authorised to, on one or more occasions before the next Annual General Meeting, resolve to issue new shares. An issue of new shares can only be decided with regard to shareholders’ pre-emption rights. Following this authorisation, the Board may resolve to issue a total maximum number of shares equivalent to issue proceeds of a maximum of SEK 800 million. The authorisation includes the right to resolve that shares will be issued against cash payment. The reason for the authorisation is to optimize the capital structure of the company and to allow for strategic initiatives.
