Preparation and approval of a voting list (item 3)

Resolution regarding authorisation for the board of directors to issue shares (item 6)

Pomegranate Investment AB (publ) is contemplating to undertake a share capital increase through a private placement of shares in the Company, in order to invest more into its largest portfolio asset, as well as to make additional investments in other portfolio assets.

The share issue will be directed towards a limited number of investors in jurisdictions where the transaction may lawfully be directed without contravention of any additional registration or other legal requirements. For that purpose the board of directors has enlisted Pareto Securities AB as a manager for a potential transaction and is seeking a mandate to be able to raise capital by issue of new shares as presented below.

The authorisation to issue new shares

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to authorise the board for the period up to the next annual general meeting to adopt decisions, whether on one or several occasions and whether with or without pre-emption rights for the shareholders, and within the limits of the articles of association and corresponding to a dilution of up to 20 % of outstanding shares at the time the board of directors first utilises the authorisation to issue new shares. Such new issue resolutions may include provisions of payment in cash and/or payment by way of contribution of non-cash consideration or by set-off of a claim or other conditions.

The CEO or a person appointed by the CEO shall be authorised to make any minor adjustments required to register the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

It was noted that the resolution is conditional upon the extraordinary general meeting resolving in accordance with the board of directors' proposals regarding adoption of new articles of association (item 7).

Resolution to adopt new articles of association (item 7)

The board of directors proposes to amend the articles of association implying that the share capital may amount to not less than EUR 5,000,000 and not more than EUR 20,000,000, and that the number of shares shall be not less than 5,000,000and not more than 20,000,000 shares. The proposal entails that § 4 and § 5 of the company's articles of association are amended to have the following wording.

§ 4 Share capital

The share capital shall be not less than EUR 5,000,000 and not more than EUR 20,000,000.

§ 5 Number of shares

The number of shares shall be not less than 5,000,000 and not more than 20,000,000 shares.

Resolution regarding issue of shares (item 8)

The board of directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to raise additional capital of up to EUR 2,500,000 (the total transfer price), by way of an increase of the company's share capital with not more than EUR 138,889 through an issue of not more than 138,889 new shares.

The purpose of the share issue is to allow the company's current shareholders to subscribe for shares in accordance with the following terms and conditions.

1. The right to subscribe for the new shares shall vest with Pareto Securities AB ("Pareto") and be made at a subscription price of EUR 1 per share (the quota value of the share). The reason for the deviation from the shareholders' pre-emption rights, and the basis for determining the subscription price for the shares at EUR 1 is to enable efficient settlement in the new share issue.

2. Subscription for shares shall be made by Pareto on a subscription list not later than 1 December 2021. The board of directors shall be authorised to extend the subscription period.

3. Payment of EUR 1 (the quota value of the share) per subscribed share shall be made in cash not later than in connection with the share subscription. However, the board of directors shall be entitled to extend the payment period.

4. The new shares shall be entitled to dividends for the first time on the record date that occurs immediately following the subscription for shares.

5. Following Pareto's subscription for the new shares, the shares shall be transferred from Pareto in accordance with the following allocation principles: firstly, current shareholders in the company ("Current Shareholders") shall be allocated shares relative to their current shareholding to the extent possible; secondly, unless shares corresponding to the total transfer price amount of EUR 2,500,000 have been allocated, to Current Shareholders that have applied for allocation in addition to their current shareholding; thirdly, to persons who, in advance, have subscribed for shares.

6. The CEO or a person appointed by the CEO shall be authorised to make any minor adjustments required to register the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

It was noted that the resolution is conditional upon the extraordinary general meeting resolving in accordance with the board of directors' proposals regarding adoption of new articles of association (item 7).

Resolution to amend the company's 2020 incentive program (item 9)

The board of directors proposes that the company's 2020 incentive program for management ("Management LTIP 2020") is amended as follows:

A maximum of 20 % of the approved Management LTIP 2020 can be redistributed at the boards discretion to key individuals.
