Cleantech Invest Plc: Correction to the English version of the Company Release regarding notice to the Extraordinary General Meeting

Releases

In the English version of Cleantech Invest Plc’s Company Release of 11 February 2016 concerning notice to the Extraordinary General Meeting there was an error in the starting time of the meeting as well as in the starting time of the registration and distribution of voting tickets included in the first paragraph. The correct wording of the paragraph is: ”Notice is given to the shareholders of Cleantech Invest Plc to the Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on Wednesday, 9 March 2016 at 10.00 a.m. (EET) at Sokos Hotel Pasila, Maistraatinpolku 3, 00240 Helsinki, Finland. The reception of persons who have registered for the meeting and the distribution of voting tickets will commence at 9.30 a.m. (EET).”

In the Finnish version of the Company Release the sentence is correct.

The correct English version of the Company Release is in its entirety the following:

Notice to the Extraordinary General Meeting

Notice is given to the shareholders of Cleantech Invest Plc to the Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on Wednesday, 9 March 2016 at 10.00 a.m. (EET) at Sokos Hotel Pasila, Maistraatinpolku 3, 00240 Helsinki, Finland. The reception of persons who have registered for the meeting and the distribution of voting tickets will commence at 9.30 a.m. (EET).

A. Matters on the agenda of the General Meeting

At the General Meeting, the following matters will be considered:

1. Opening of the meeting

2. Calling the meeting to order

3. Election of persons to scrutinize the minutes and to supervise the counting of votes

4. Recording the legality of the meeting

5. Recording the attendance at the meeting and adoption of the list of votes

6. Presentation of the contemplated secondary listing on First North Sweden 

7. Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide on issuance of shares

The Board of Directors proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting authorizes the Board of Directors to decide, in one or more transactions, on the issuance of class A shares as follows:

The number of class A shares to be issued based on the authorization may in total amount to a maximum of 7,900,000 shares.

The Board of Directors decides on all the terms and conditions of the issuances of shares. The authorization concerns both the issuance of new shares as well as transfer of treasury shares. The issuance of shares may be carried out in deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights (directed issue), if there is a weighty financial reason for the company, including but not limited to using the shares as consideration in future acquisitions or other business arrangements or financing investments.

The authorization cancels the authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting on 20 April 2015 to decide on the issuance of shares.

The authorization is valid until 30 June 2017.

8. Authorizing the Board of Directors to decide on issuance of options

The Board of Directors proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting authorizes the Board of Directors to decide, in one or more transactions, on the issuance of options as follows:

The number of new class A shares that can be subscribed to based on the options that can be issued on basis of the authorization may in total amount to a maximum of 1,000,000 shares.

The options may be issued to the key personnel, including potentially members of the Board of Directors of the Company, or advisors as part of the company's incentive scheme to be established by the Board of Directors. The options shall be divided into three equal-size tranches A, B and C:

-       Tranche A: Share subscription period shall be 1 July 2016 – 31 December 2025 and the original subscription price EUR 1.00. However, the share subscription period for tranche A shall not begin prior to the trade volume weighted average quotation of the company’s class A share on First North Finland has been not less than EUR 1.75 during four (4) consecutive weeks.

-       Tranche B: Share subscription period shall be 1 July 2017 – 31 December 2025 and the original subscription price EUR 1.00. However, the share subscription period for tranche B shall not begin prior to the trade volume weighted average quotation of the company’s class A share on First North Finland has been not less than EUR 2.25 during four (4) consecutive weeks.

-       Tranche C: Share subscription period shall be 1 July 2018 – 31 December 2025 and the original subscription price EUR 1.00. However, the share subscription period for tranche C shall not begin prior to the trade volume weighted average quotation of the company’s class A share on First North Finland has been not less than EUR 3.00 during four (4) consecutive weeks.

The original share subscription price for the options is determined based on the trade volume weighted average quotation of the company’s class A share on First North Finland during 3 December 2015 – 9 February 2016 with a discount of 10 per cent.

The Board of Directors resolves the persons receiving the options and all other terms and conditions of the options. However, the General Meeting resolves on granting of options to members of the Board of Directors should the options be remuneration for membership in the Board of Directors. For the avoidance of doubt, the Board of Directors may resolve on granting of options to members of the Board of Directors who are also working for the company in operative role, if the options are granted based on their operative role in the company.

The Board of Directors shall not issue options based on the authorization to persons who are directly or indirectly major shareholders of Cleantech Invest Plc. until majority of the members of the Board of Directors are independent of Cleantech Invest Plc. and its major shareholders.

The authorization cancels the authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting on 20 April 2015 to decide on the issuance of options and other special rights entitling to shares.

The authorization is valid until 30 June 2017.
