Savosolar has currently one valid stock option programme “1-2015”, according to which a maximum of 250,000 stock options of the company can be granted. Of the stock options, 77,500 are marked with the symbol 2015A, 57,500 are marked with the symbol 2015B, 57,500 are marked with the symbol 2015C and 57,500 are marked with the symbol 2015D.
Originally, the stock options entitled to subscribe for a total of up to 250,000 shares in the company. In December 2015, the company’s Board of Directors decided to amend the terms of the stock option programme due to the rights issue that ended on 20 November 2015 in such a way that each stock option entitles its holder to subscribe two new shares.
The subscription price for the shares was originally EUR 1.50 per share. In November 2015, The Bord of Directors resolved to amend the subscription price to EUR 0.93 per share. Later, in connection with the offering arranged in June 2016, the Board of Directors decided that the new subscription price per share is EUR 0.82. The share subscription price shall be entered into the invested unrestricted equity fund of the company.
A total of 92,600 stock options have been allocated to seven persons employed by the company. Stock options were allocated to the management team as follows: to Patrick Jansson 17,000, to Aku Järvisalo 11,000 and to Jari Varjotie 25,000.
The subscription periods are as follows:
- for stock option 2015A 1 April 2016-31 March 2018
- for stock option 2015B 1 October 2016-31 March 2018
- for stock option 2015C 1 April 2017-31 March 2018
- for stock option 2015D 1 October 2017-31 March 2018.
The company shall hold the stock options on behalf of the stock option owner until the beginning of the share subscription period. To the extent the legislation or the company’s insider rules in force from time to time do not impose restrictions for transfer, the stock options may freely be transferred and pledged, when the relevant share subscription period has begun. The Boar d of Directors may, however, permit the transfer or pledge of stock options also before such date. Should the stock option owner transfer or pledge his or her stock options, such person shall be obliged to inform the company about the transfer or pledge in writing, without delay. The Board of Directors may, at its discretion, decide to restrict the transfer of stock options in certain countries, e.g. for legal or administrative reasons. Should a stock option owner cease to be employed by or in the service of a company belonging to the group, for any reason other than the death or the statutory retirement of a stock option owner or the retirement of a stock option owner in compliance with the employment or service contract, or the retirement of a stock option owner otherwise determined by the company, or the permanent disability of a stock option owner, such person shall, without delay, forfeit to the company or its designee, without compensation, such stock options that the Board of Directors has distributed to him/her at its discretion, for which the share subscription period has not begun, on the last day of such person’s employment or service.
Should the rights and obligations arising from the stock option owner’s employment or service be transferred to a new owner or holder, upon the employer’s transfer of business, the process shall be similar. As an exception to the above, the Board of Directors may, at its discretion, decide, when appropriate, that the stock option owner is entitled to keep such stock options, or a part of them. Should the company, before the share subscription, decide on an issue of shares or an issue of new stock options or other special rights entitling to shares so that the shareholders have preferential subscription rights, the owner of a stock option shall have, pursuant to the terms of the stock option programme, the same right as, or an equal right to, that of a shareholder. Equality is reached in the manner determined by the Board of Directors by adjusting the number of shares available for subscription, the share subscription prices or both of these.
