The board of directors has carried out an overview of the present guidelines for remuneration to senior executives, adopted at the Annual General Meeting of 2020, and has resolved, to enable a competitive remuneration structure for senior executives, both from a national and an international perspective, to make a proposal for amendment of the guidelines wherein the limitation for variable remuneration is increased from 35 percent to 50 percent of the fixed annual salary and the limitation for pension is increased from 25 percent to 30 percent for all senior executives.

In the light of above, the board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting adopt the following guidelines for remuneration to the CEO and other senior executives. The guidelines also apply to prospective compensation to the board of directors’ members in excess of the board of directors’ fee.

The guidelines apply to remuneration agreed to after the annual general meeting 2021 and to amendments to already agreed remunerations which are made thereafter. These guidelines do not apply to issues or transfers that fall within Chapter 16 of the Swedish Companies Act or fees and other remuneration resolved by the general meeting. For employments governed by regulations other than Swedish, pension benefits or other benefits may be duly adjusted for compliance with mandatory rules or established local practice, considering, to the extent possible, the overall purpose of these guidelines.

The guidelines’ promotion of the Company’s business strategy, long-term interests and sustainability
In order to successfully implement the Company’s business strategy and safeguard the Company’s long-term interests, including its sustainability, it is required that the Company is able to recruit and retain qualified employees. The Company’s area of operation, immunology, is an area with high demand for individuals with the right competence, both from a national and an international perspective. The Company aspire to offer a competitive total compensation at market level both from a national and an international perspective and thereby be able to attract and retain qualified employees.

Forms of remuneration, etc.
The remuneration shall be at market level, be in relation to responsibility and authority and consist of the following components: fixed salary, any variable remuneration in accordance with separate agreements, pension and other benefits. The general meeting may in addition – irrespective of these guidelines – resolve on, shares or share price-based instruments that form part of remuneration.

Fixed salary
The fixed salary shall constitute the base of the total compensation and shall consist of fixed cash salary, which shall be reviewed annually. The fixed salary shall be competitive and reflect the requirements of the position regarding competence, responsibility, complexity and in which way the remuneration promotes the business goals.

Variable remuneration
In addition to the fixed salary, the CEO and other senior executives may, in accordance with separate agreements, receive variable remuneration upon fulfilment of predetermined criteria. Any variable remuneration shall consist of annual variable cash salary and may not exceed 50 per cent of the fixed annual salary.
The variable renumeration shall be linked to one or several predetermined and measurable objectives and shall be designed to promote the Company’s business strategy and long-term interests, including sustainability, and be determined by the board of directors. The variable salary shall depend on the individual’s achievement of qualitative and quantitative objectives. The objectives shall be based on both the Company’s overall objectives with the business and on individual objectives relevant to the senior executive’s position in the Company. The criteria shall be valid for one financial year at a time.
When the measurement period for fulfillment of the criteria for payment of variable remuneration has been completed, the extent to which the criteria have been fulfilled shall be assessed. The assessment shall be based on an actual achievement of the individual criteria and on an overall view.

Pension
For the CEO and other senior executives, pension benefits, including health insurance, shall be fixed and the premiums may not exceed 30 per cent of the fixed annual salary. Variable renumeration shall not contribute to pension.

Other benefits
Other benefits, which may include travel benefit and health care insurance, shall be at market level and constitute a limited share of the total renumeration. Premiums and other costs arising from such benefits may not exceed 15 per cent of the fixed annual salary.

Termination of employment
The notice period for termination for the CEO and other senior executives shall be a maximum of twelve months. When termination is made by the Company, severance may be paid with an amount corresponding to a maximum of twelve months fixed salary.

Additional remuneration may be paid for non-compete undertakings. Such renumeration shall compensate for loss of income. The remuneration may not exceed 60 per cent of the fixed salary at the time of termination of employment and be paid during the time the non-compete undertaking applies, however not for more than 18 months following termination of employment.

Remuneration to the board of directors
The members of the Company board of directors, elected by the general meeting, may under certain circumstances and during a limited period be paid for services, which is not part of the work of the board of directors, within their field of competence. The remuneration for such services (including services conducted by a company wholly owned by the member of the board of directors) shall be at market rate and the services shall contribute to the Company’s business and long-term interest, including sustainability.

Salary and employment conditions for employees
In the preparation of the board of directors’ proposal of these guidelines, the salary and employment terms of the Company’s employees have been considered through the inclusion of information on the employees’ total compensation, the components of the remuneration and the remunerations increase and growth rate over time. This information has informed the renumeration committee and the board of directors when evaluating and deciding whether the guidelines and the limitations set out herein are reasonable.

Preparation and decision procedure
The board of directors has established a remuneration committee. The committee’s tasks include, among other things, to prepare principles for remuneration to the senior executives and prepare the board of directors’ resolution regarding proposal for guidelines for remuneration to senior executives. The board of directors shall prepare a proposal for new guidelines at least every fourth year and present it to the annual general meeting. The guidelines shall be in force until new guidelines are adopted by the general meeting.

The remuneration committee shall also monitor and evaluate programs for variable remuneration for the senior executives, the application of the guidelines for salary and other remuneration to the senior executives as well as the current remuneration structures and compensation levels in the Company. Remuneration to the CEO shall be resolved by the board of directors after preparation and recommendation from the remuneration committee and remuneration to other senior executives shall be resolved by the board of directors based on proposal from the CEO. The CEO or other senior executives do not participate in the board of directors’ processing of, and resolutions regarding, remuneration-related matters if they are affected by such matters.

Deviations from the guidelines
The board of directors may resolve to deviate from the guidelines, in whole or in part, if in a specific case there is special cause for a deviation and that deviation is necessary to serve the Company’s long-term interests, including its sustainability, or to ensure the Company’s financial viability. As stated above, the remuneration committee’s duties include preparing the board of directors’ resolutions regarding remuneration-related matters, including resolutions to deviate from the guidelines.

Information regarding previously resolved remuneration that has not fallen due for payment
In addition to commitments to pay ongoing remuneration such as salary, pension and other benefits, there are no previously decided remuneration to any senior executives that has not fallen due for payment.

Item 13. Resolution regarding performance based LTI 2021/2024

The purpose with the proposal is to create conditions to retain and increase motivation with senior executives, employees and other key individuals in the Company.

  1. A maximum of 1,678,453 employee stock options may be allotted to the participants in the Employee Stock Option Program 2021/2024. Allotment shall occur as soon as practicably possible following the approval by the general meeting and at latest 31 August 2021.

The Participants are divided into different categories based on size and responsibility classification of roles within the group. In accordance with the principles and assumptions stated herein, allocation will occur in the following way:

  1. The CEO, who may be offered a maximum of 419,614 employee stock options;

  1. Allocation of restricted share units is in each case conditional upon that (i) the relevant Participant’s employment or mission with the Company or its subsidiaries has not been terminated or discontinued, with certain exceptions, and (ii) the Participant has entered into a separate restricted share unit agreement with the Company. The board of directors shall ensure that the agreements with the Participants contain terms that prohibit transfers and pledges of the restricted share units and that restricted share units not yet vested will, subject to certain exceptions, be forfeited should the employee no longer be employed in the Company or its subsidiaries.

  1. The restricted share units shall be allotted to the Participants free of charge.

  1. 1/3 of the allotted restricted share units will vest 12 months (the year 2022) after the time of the allotment, an additional 1/3 will vest 12 months thereafter (the year 2023) and an additional 1/3 will vest 12 months thereafter (the year 2024). Vesting requires that the Participant is still employed by the Company or the subsidiary. If the Participant’s employment is terminated by the Participant or due to the Participant’s breach of contract, all restricted share units shall immediately expire and cannot be exercised thereafter. If the employment is terminated for other reasons, vested restricted share units may be exercised whereas the right to restricted share units not yet allotted or vested will expire.

  1. Participation in the Restricted Share Unit Program 2021/2024 is in each case conditional upon that such participation is legally possible as well as possible with reasonable administrative cost and financial efforts according to the assessment of the board of directors.

  1. The board of directors shall be responsible for preparing the agreements with the Participants and the administration of the Restricted Share Unit Program 2021/2024.

Further, in extraordinary cases, the board of directors is entitled to limit the extent of the Restricted Share Unit Program 2021/2024, or terminate the Restricted Share Unit Program 2021/2024 in advance, in whole or in part.

  1. The number of shares that may be acquired for each restricted share unit shall be recalculated in the event of share splits, rights issues and similar corporate actions with the aim that the economic value of a restricted share unit shall be unaffected by such actions.

C) Dilution and costs for LTI 2021/2024 etc.
The maximum dilution as a result of LTI 2021/2024 will not exceed 1.5 per cent of the outstanding shares and votes in the Company (with reservation for any re-calculation). The dilution is based on the maximum number of shares and votes which can be issued divided with the total number of shares and votes after such issue.

The employee stock options and restricted share units will be expensed over the vesting period, without affecting the company's cash flow. If employee stock options and restricted share units are exercised, LTI 2021/2024 will also entail costs in the form of social security contributions. The total costs for social security contributions depend on the Participant's employment status, on the number of vested employee stock options and restricted share units and on the value of the benefit that the Participant ultimately receives, i.e. the value of the employee stock options or restricted share units upon exercise in 2024. Social security contributions will be expensed in the income statement during the vesting period.

Based on the assumption that all employee stock options and restricted share units will be vested, an assumed share price of SEK 13.7 when the employee stock options and restricted share units are utilized and an assumed average social security rate of approximately 31.42 percent, the total costs for the program will amount to approximately MSEK 15. The total cost for the LTI 2021 will be distributed over the years 2021-2024. Given the above assumptions, it is calculated that the yearly costs for the LTI 2021/2024 will amount to approximately 10 percent in relation to the Company's salary costs for employees (including social security contributions) for the 2020 financial year.

Outstanding incentive programs
The Company has one outstanding incentive program, LTI 2019/2022, consisting of 1,809,277 warrants. Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) share in the Company for a share price of SEK 19,90 during the period commencing at 22 May 2022 up until and including 28 July 2022.

Preparation of proposal
The board of directors has prepared the LTI 2021/2024 in consultation with external advisors and the Company's main shareholders.

Majority requirements
A resolution to approve the present proposal is valid only where supported by shareholders holding not less than nine-tenths (9/10) of both the shares voted for and of the shares represented at the meeting.

Item 14. Resolution regarding authorization for the board of directors to decide on new issue and issue of warrants and/or convertibles
The board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting resolves to authorize the board of directors to resolve, for the period until the end of the next annual general meeting, at one or more occasions and with or without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, to issue new shares, warrants and/or convertibles for cash payment and/or with provision of non-cash consideration or set-off or otherwise. The number of shares, or warrants or convertibles that entitle subscription of a number of shares, that may be issued in directed issues shall not exceed 20 percent of the Company’s registered number of shares on a fully diluted basis, i.e. including outstanding warrants in the Company, at the time of the board of director’s first resolution pursuant to the authorization. In addition to the limitation of 20 percent for directed issues, the board shall be entitled to issue shares, or warrants or convertibles that entitle subscription of a number of shares, without deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights up to a maximum of 10 percent of the Company’s registered number of shares on a fully diluted basis. Deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights shall be possible to, if needed, strengthen the Company’s financial position, broaden the ownership base and/or to increase the institutional ownership of the Company. New issue of shares and issue of warrants and/or convertible debentures shall, in the event of deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, be made at market conditions.

The board of directors, the managing director or the person appointed by the board of director shall be entitled to make the minor adjustments of the decision required in connection with the registration thereof.

For the present resolution to be valid it is required that the proposal is approved by shareholders holding at least two-thirds (2/3) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the general meeting.

NUMBER OF SHARES AND VOTES IN THE COMPANY
At the time of the issuing of this notice the total number of shares and votes in the Company amounts to 166,167,166. Only one class of shares exists and the Company has no holding of own shares.
