The Board of Directors of Nanoform Finland Plc decided on issue of stock options to key employees

Helsinki, Finland The Annual General Meeting of Nanoform Finland Plc (“Nanoform”) has on 6 April 2021 authorized the company’s Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares as well as the issuance of special rights entitling to shares referred to in Chapter 10 Section 1 of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act by one or several decisions.

The Board of Directors of Nanoform has on 11 June 2021 resolved to issue stock options to selected key personnel of Nanoform based on the authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting on 6 April 2021. The stock options are offered in deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive subscription right. The stock options are issued free of charge.

There is a weighty financial reason from the company’s point of view to issue stock options as provided in Chapter 10, Section 1 of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act, because the stock options are issued in order to commit key individuals to the company.

The total number of option rights to be issued is at most 100,000. The stock options entitle to subscribe for at most 100,000 shares in Nanoform. Each stock option entitles to subscribe for one new share. The subscription price for shares subscribed with stock options is EUR 9.00 per share, which is approximately 22 percent more than the closing price on 10 June 2021. The total subscription price of the shares shall be paid to the company’s fund for invested own free equity.

The theoretical market value of the program is estimated at approximately EUR 210,000, which is 100,000 times the value of one stock option. The value of one stock option has been calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The following assumptions have been used to determine the value of the option: share price EUR 7.40, stock option exercise price EUR 9.00, maturity 5 years, risk-free interest rate 0.01 percent and volatility 40 percent. The calculation of the market value has taken into account that the targets set for the share subscription may not be met.

The subscription period for shares based on the option rights shall commence from the registration of stock options to the Trade Register and ends on 11 June 2026.

The stock options entitle to subscribe for shares during the subscription period in accordance with the subscription schedule agreed in the option agreement between Nanoform and each option holder so that all issued stock options entitle option holders to subscribe for shares at the latest on 11 June 2022. If the option holder’s employment or service relationship or membership in the Board of Directors with Nanoform or a company within the same group as Nanoform terminates, any stock options, for which the subscription period, as may be separately agreed with the option holder, has not commenced; or in the absence of such agreement, all stock options, shall become void immediately as from the date of the notice of termination regarding the relationship without compensation and for all such stock options for which the subscription period has commenced, the option holder must subscribe for shares in Nanoform with such stock options within 90 days from the notice of termination of the relationship, following which any remaining stock options shall become void without compensation, unless otherwise resolved by the Board of Directors of Nanoform.

Tips från oss på Börskollen

Här tipsar vi om tjänster som vi på Börskollen själva använder och kan stå bakom. Därutöver rekommenderar vi också att du prenumererar på vårt nyhetsbrev samt laddar ner vår app (helt gratis). Texten nedan innehåller annonslänkar och investeringar är alltid förenade med risk.

Investera enkelt och billigt i aktier och fonder

Hos Avanza och Nordnet kan du kostnadsfritt öppna konto för att kunna handla aktier. För att investera i fonder så billigt som möjligt tycker vi dock att du ska spana in SAVR där du kan äga över 1 300 av de bästa fonderna och betala 30-50 % mindre i avgifter, varje år!

Ett tips är att öppna konto hos flera av dessa för att dra nytta av ett större totalbelopp med courtagefri handel och låga avgifter!

Sänk dina månadskostnader och öka din sparkvot

När det kommer till tråkiga utgifter som försäkringar kan vi verkligen rekommendera Hedvig. Vi jämförde direkt på deras site och sänkte vår egen kostnad för hemförsäkring med 2 436 kr per år, jämfört med det näst billigaste alternativet. Pengar som nu läggs på sparande istället.

Analysera dina favoritaktier med marknadens bästa tjänster

För dig som är nyfiken på teknisk eller fundamental analys tipsar vi om analystjänsterna TradingView och Börsdata. Plattformarna går att använda helt gratis och är annars väldigt prisvärda om du vill ha fler funktioner. Vi skulle inte klara oss utan dessa fantastiska tjänster!
