Item 6 - Resolution on repurchase of call options in LTIP 2021/2024

Based on a resolution by the Annual General Meeting 2021, Beijer Ref has implemented a long-term share-based incentive program for management and key personnel in the Beijer Ref Group, according to which in May 2021 participants have been offered to acquire call options on shares in Beijer Ref at a market price. Currently, approximately 95 participants in the program hold call options corresponding to 1,623,600 underlying shares of series B in Beijer Ref at an exercise price of SEK 150.40 per share. The call options can be exercised during the period 1-14 June 2024.


The board of directors proposes that the General Meeting approves that Beijer Ref offers to repurchase all of the call options as of 10 June 2024 at a price per option that corresponds to the volume-weighted average price of the share during the period of 31 May – 7 June 2024 according to Nasdaq Stockholm’s official price list minus the exercise price, subject to the condition that the participant shall acquire shares in Beijer Ref for the proceeds received net after tax.


If all participants accept the repurchase offer and if the shares are trading at SEK 170 per share, then the cash flow resulting from the repurchase will be affected by approximately SEK 32 million. The background to the proposal is that the board of directors considers it important to facilitate for employees to realise the potential value of the options and thereby also, among other things, facilitate participation in future incentive programs. Previously repurchased shares remain for hedging of remaining and future incentive programs. 




The proxy form and postal voting form are available at the company’s website and will be distributed free of charge to shareholders who so request and state their postal address.


At the time of publication of this notice, the total number of shares in the company is 509,085,926 representing a total of 760,691,366 votes, of which 27,956,160 are shares of series A, representing 279,561,600 votes, and 481,129,766 are shares of series B, representing an equal amount of votes, of which 2,275,000 shares of series B are held by the company which may not be represented at the meeting.




The board of directors and the managing director shall, if any shareholder so requests, and if the board of directors considers that this can be done without significant harm for the company, give information on circumstances that may affect the judgement of an item on the agenda.
