Authorization for the board of directors to resolve on new issues of shares
The meeting resolved, in accordance with the board of directors’ proposal, to authorize the board of directors, on one or several occasions, until the next annual general meeting, to resolve on issues of new shares, and that such new issue can be performed with deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights. The board of directors is entitled to resolve on share issues causing an increase of the company’s share capital of at most 20 percent of the company’s registered share capital at the time the board of directors first utilizes the authorization.
The reason for the authorization and the reason for the possible deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to enable capital raisings for the acquisition of companies, or parts of companies, and for the operations of the company.
Resolution on share split and amendment to the articles of association
The meeting resolved, in accordance with the board of directors’ proposal, on a share split 10:1 whereby each share is divided into ten shares, and that § 5 in the company’s articles of association is amended so that the number of shares shall be no less than 250,000,000 and no more than 1,000,000,000.

The meeting resolved, in accordance with the board of directors’ proposal, to adopt an additional long term incentive program for senior executives and key employees within the Sinch group (“LTI 2021”).
LTI 2021 comprises four series of warrants. Upon exercise of all warrants/stock options issued within the frame of LTI 2021, up to 323,000 shares (with reservation for any re-calculation) may be issued, equivalent to a maximum dilution of approximately 0.49 per cent of the shares and votes of the company. Upon full exercise of the warrants, the company’s share capital will increase with SEK 32,300.
The calculations above have been based on the number of shares and votes in the company as of the date of the notice.
In order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection (COVID-19), the annual general meeting was conducted via a vote-by-post procedure and thus without the physical presence of shareholders, proxies or external parties.
