3. Proposal by the Board of Directors for authorisation to increase the share capital through rights issues, and/or by issuing convertible bonds and/or granting stock options
 
The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that the Board or Directors be authorised to increase the share capital through one or more rights issues, and/or by issuing one or more convertible bonds and/or granting stock options in one or more lots. The authorisation shall be valid for one year. The new shares to be subscribed in the new issue and/or on the basis of the stock options and the shares to be issued at the conversion of the convertible bonds may together increase the share capital of the company by a maximum of EUR 4,092,775.68 (not exact) so that a maximum of 2,436,176 shares, with the book value equivalent of EUR 1.68 per share, may be subscribed.
 
The authorisation will include the right to disapply shareholders’ pre-emptive right to subscribe for new shares, convertible bonds or stock options as described in Chapter 4, Section 2, of the Companies Act. The Board of Directors will be entitled to decide on subscription price, the persons entitled to subscription, the terms and conditions of subscription and the terms and conditions of convertible bonds and stock options. The pre-emptive right of subscription of the shareholders may be deviated from provided that a weighty financial reason for this exists, such as an arrangement related to the development of the company’s business, financing of a merger or acquisition, the strengthening or development of the financial or capital structure of the company or incentives to the personnel.
