  • Lars Frederiksen

  • Christian Mariager

  • Birgitte Nielsen

The Board of Directors nominates Signe Trock Hilstrøm and Mette Maix for election to the Board of Directors.

A description of the candidates proposed by the Board of Directors is provided in Annex 1.

 

Re agenda item 7

The Board of Directors proposes that Ernst & Young Godkendt Revisionspartnerselskab, CVR no. 30 70 02 28, be reappointed as the company’s auditor in accordance with the Audit Committee’s recommendation. The Audit Committee’s recommendation has not been influenced by any third parties nor has it been subject to any contractual obligation restricting the general meeting’s choice to certain auditors or audit firms.

 

Re agenda item 8.a

As stated in company announcement no. 15 2016/17 of 30 August 2016, the Board of Directors has resolved to exercise the authorisation to acquire treasury shares given at the annual general meeting held on 29 June 2016 and to initiate a share buyback programme for a maximum amount of DKK 150 million. The share buyback programme was carried out in the period from 1 September 2016 until 23 February 2017. In addition, Matas has acquired treasury shares under the share buyback programme carried out in the period from 19 November 2015 until 12 May 2016, as stated in company announcement no. 6 2016/2017 of 13 May 2016. Reference is further made to the company announcements regarding these share buyback programmes published on the company's website: investor.matas.dk.

Against that background, the Board of Directors proposes that the company's share capital be reduced by a nominal amount of DKK 2,500,000 from a nominal value of DKK 98,228,730 to a nominal value of DKK 95,728,730 through cancellation of a part of the company's holding of treasury shares, i.e. a total of 1,000,000 treasury shares of DKK 2.50 each, equivalent to 2.55% of the company's total share capital.

The purpose of the reduction of the company's share capital is to distribute funds to the shareholders through the share buybacks carried out in accordance with earlier authorisations by the shareholders to the Board of Directors. The distribution was carried out in connection with the acquisition of treasury shares.

As regards the proposed capital reduction and cancellation of shares, it is noted that:

  • a total of 724,207 shares of DKK 2.50 each were acquired during the period from 1 September 2016 until 23 February 2017 for a total amount of DKK 77,856,953, corresponding to an average price of DKK 107.51 (rounded).

  • a total of 275,793 shares of DKK 2.50 each were acquired during the period from 19 November 2015 until 12 May 2016 for a total amount of DKK 35,143,505, corresponding to an average price of DKK 127.43 (rounded).

The shares were thus acquired for a total amount of DKK 113,000,458, and the proposal entails that, in addition to the nominal amount of the reduction of DKK 2,500,000, a total of DKK 110,500,458 has been distributed to the shareholders pursuant to section 188(1)(ii) of the Danish Companies Act. The capital reduction will thus be completed at a premium. The amount of the reduction will be transferred from the company’s non-distributable reserves to its distributable reserves.

Following the reduction of the capital, the company's share capital will be nominally DKK 95,728,730.

Adoption of the proposed resolution to reduce the capital will result in the following amendment to article 2.1 of the articles of association effective from the completion of the capital reduction:

"The Company's nominal share capital is DKK 95,728,730, divided into shares of DKK 2.50 each or multiples thereof."

 

Re agenda item 8.b

The Board of Directors proposes that the Board of Directors be authorised by the general meeting to let the company acquire treasury shares for up to 10% of its share capital in the period until the next annual general meeting, provided that the company’s holding of treasury shares may at no time exceed 10% of the share capital. The purchase price must not deviate by more than 10% from the price quoted on Nasdaq Copenhagen at the time of purchase.

Adoption requirements, share capital, record date, attendance and voting rights

The adoption of the proposal by the Board of Directors under item 8.a of the agenda requires a majority voting in favour of the proposed resolution of at least two-thirds of both the votes cast and of the voting share capital represented at the general meeting, see article 7.2 of the articles of association. All other resolutions will be passed by a simple majority of votes pursuant to article 7.1 of the articles of association.

The total nominal value of the company's share capital is DKK 98,228,730 divided into shares of DKK 2.50 each, equivalent to 39,291,492 shares. Each share of DKK 2.50 carries one vote.
