Resolution on share issue authorisation (item 7)

The Board proposes that the General Meeting passes a resolution on share issue authorisation mainly according to the following.

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 proposal is to optimize the capital structure of the company and to allow for strategic initiatives. 

The Board or its nominee has the right to decide on minor changes to the General Meeting's resolution that may be necessary in connection with registration of the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office or due to other formal requirements.

The Board's complete proposal for a resolution on share issue authorisation will be available at the Company and on the Company's website as from 2 January 2017 at the latest, and will be sent immediately without charge to any shareholders who so request and state their postal address. The complete proposal will also be available at the meeting. 


The total number of shares in the Company as of the date of this notice is 43,326,289 shares, representing a total of 43,326,289 voting rights. As of that date the Company does not own any of its own shares.


The shareholders are reminded of their right to require information from the Board and the CEO in accordance with Chapter 7, Section 32 of the Swedish Companies Act. Any shareholder wishing to submit questions in advance may do so to Sofia Wretman (Communication and IR Director), by post to the address Alimak Group AB, Brunkebergstorg 5, 111 51 Stockholm, Sweden, or by e-mail to the address
