Item 12 - Proposal for a decision on the directed issue of warrants and approval of the subsidiary's transfer pursuant to Chapter 16 section 4 second paragraph of the Companies Act

Background and motive
The board of directors has proposed that the annual general meeting resolves on a warrant-based incentive program for the individuals who are or will be employed by the Company (individuals employed for a fixed time period are excluded) including the CEO of the Company ("Employees") in accordance with the conditions set out below ("Warrant Program 2022/2026").

The purpose of the proposed program and the reasons for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights are that the board of directors believes that a warrant program that allows the Employees to gain access to the Company's value development promotes participation and accountability and brings increased motivation to promote favourable economic development in the Company. An incentive program is also expected to contribute to the recruitment and retention of competent, motivated and committed employees.

In light of the above, the board of directors propose that the annual general meeting resolve to (A) issue warrants of series 2022/2026 to the Subsidiary (as defined below) and (B) approve the transfer of warrants series 2022/2026 from the Subsidiary to the Employees in accordance with item 12.B below. Items (A) and (B) constitute an overall proposal and shall be resolved upon as one resolution by the annual general meeting.

Item 12.A - Directed issue of warrants
For the implementation of Warrant Program 2022/2026, the board of directors propose that the annual general meeting resolves to issue a maximum of 300,000 warrants of series 2022/2026, implying an increase in the share capital upon full exercise with a maximum of SEK 15,000.

For the decision, the following conditions shall apply:

  1. No more than 300,000 warrants shall be issued.
  2. With the exception of shareholders' preferential rights, the subscriber shall be the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary Acconeer Incentive AB, reg. no. 559156-2474 (the "Subsidiary") with the right and obligation for the Subsidiary to transfer the warrants to the Employees in accordance with item B below.
  3. The warrants shall be issued free of charge to the Subsidiary.
  4. Subscription of warrants shall be made on a special subscription list within two weeks from the date of the issue resolution. The board of directors is entitled to extend the subscription period. Over-subscription cannot occur.
  5. Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one (1) share in the Company.
  6. Subscription of shares under the warrants may take place during the period from 3 December 2025 up to and including 16 January 2026. The premium per share shall be transferred to the free share premium reserve (Sw. fria överkursfonden).
  7. The subscription price per share shall correspond to 150 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period of ten (10) trading days ending on 11 November 2022, however, the subscription price per share shall never be less than the quota value of the share. The subscription price shall be rounded to the nearest SEK 0.01, whereupon SEK 0.005 shall be rounded upwards.
  8. The shares subscribed for on the basis of the warrants shall entitle the holder to a distribution of profits for the first time on the first record date of dividends that occur after the subscription of shares has been exercised through the exercise of the warrants.
  9. Applicable re-calculation terms and other terms and conditions for the warrants can be found in "Terms and conditions for warrants series 2022/2026 for new subscription of shares in Acconeer AB (publ)".
  10. The board of directors, or the one the board of directors appoints, is authorised to make minor adjustments to the annual general meeting's decisions and attachments that may prove necessary in connection with the registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office
    or, where applicable, Euroclear Sweden AB.

Item 12.B - Approval of transfer of warrants to Employees
Warrant Program 2022/2026 shall be carried out mainly as described below.

  1. The warrants shall, for payment, be transferred by the Subsidiary on 18 November 2022, or on the later date decided by the board of directors, to the Employees in accordance with the guidelines set out below.
  2. Transfer according to item 12.B.1 shall be made at market value at the respective transfer dates, which shall be determined by Optionspartner AB or another independent valuation institute, using the Black & Scholes valuation model.
  3. Warrants shall be allotted in accordance with the following guidelines:
    * On each respective transfer date, every Employee shall be given the opportunity to acquire warrants to an amount equivalent to no more than one fifth (1/5) of the Employee's annual income prior to income tax.
    * No more than 300,000 warrants in total may be allotted on each occasion.
  4. There will be no guaranteed allotment and over-subscription cannot occur. In case the subscription of warrants exceeds the highest amount of warrants which may be allotted, allotment of warrants will be made proportionally in accordance with each Employee's annual income prior to income tax or, to the extent that allotment cannot be made this way, by the drawing of lots.
  5. Transfer of warrants may not take place after the annual general meeting 2023, after which non-transferred warrants shall be cancelled. Such cancellation of warrants shall be reported to the Swedish Companies Registration Office for duly registration.
  6. The right to transfer warrants in Warrant Program 2022/2026 assumes that (i) the Employee holds his/her position or has signed an agreement thereon by the time of the allotment and not announced or been informed at that time that the employment is intended to be terminated, (ii)
    that acquisition of warrants can take place in accordance with applicable laws and, according to the board of directors' assessment, can be executed with reasonable administrative costs and financial efforts, and (iii) that the Employee and/or, in applicable cases, the participant's
    company has entered into an agreement with the Company, according to which the Company, or the one the Company assigns, under certain circumstances has the right to repurchase the warrants from the participant/company if the participant's employment/consultancy assignment
    ceases or if the participant/company wishes to transfer the warrants before they can be exercised for subscription of shares. The board of directors has the right to make the reasonable changes and adjustments to the terms and conditions of the agreement that are deemed suitable or appropriate as a result of local employment law or tax law or administrative conditions.
  7. For participants in other jurisdictions than Sweden, it is implied that transfer of warrants is legally possible and that transfer, in the board of directors' opinion, can be carried out with reasonable administrative and financial efforts at their established fair market value. The board of directors shall be authorised to adjust the terms and conditions of the Warrants Program 2022/2026 to the extent required in order for allotment of warrants to participants in other jurisdictions, to the extent practically possible, to be carried out under the same conditions imposed by the Warrants Program 2022/2026.

Award criteria
No award criteria, beyond what is stated in item 12.B.6 above, have been resolved upon to receive allocation in the incentive program. The board of directors believes that a broad program that includes all Employees provides the best conditions to achieve the board of directors' goals of implementing the program: committed, motivated and competent co-workers.

Valuation
Subscription of the warrants shall be made at a price equal to the warrant's fair market value the day of subscription. The warrants' fair market value, according to a preliminary valuation based on assumptions of the market value of the underlying share of SEK 48.23 at subscription and an exercise price of SEK 72.34 per share, SEK 6.93 per warrant. The Black & Scholes valuation model has been used for the valuation, assuming a risk-free interest rate of 0.549 per cent and a volatility assumption of 41.7 per cent, taking into account the expected dividends and other value transfers to the shareholders. With respect to restrictions on disposal of, and the illiquidity in the warrants, a so-called illiquidity discount of 15.2 per cent has been applied to the warrants' value. The final price for the warrants will be established in connection with each subscription occasion to the Employees and will be based on market conditions prevailing at that time.

Costs
Since the warrants are subscribed for at market value, the Company is of the opinion that there will be no social costs for the Company as a result of the issue. However, some costs may arise if the subscription price exceeds the initially estimated market value. The costs will therefore mainly consist of limited costs for the implementation and administration of the warrants. Warrant Program 2022/2026 is not expected to entail any costs of significance to the Company. For this reason, no measures for hedging the program have been taken.

Dilution, previous incentive programs and effects on key ratios
As per the day of this proposal, there are 25,720,750 shares in the Company. Assuming that all warrants that can be issued under Warrant Program 2022/2026 are exercised for subscription of new shares, the number of shares and votes in the Company will increase by 300,000, which corresponds to a dilution of approximately 1.15 per cent of the number of shares and votes in Company. The dilution is expected to have a marginal impact on the Company's key ratios.

The Company currently has four ongoing share-based incentive programs: Warrant Program 2019/2022, Warrant Program 2020/2023, Warrant Program 2021/2024:1 and Warrant Program 2021/2024:2.

The annual general meeting resolved on 9 April 2019 to issue a maximum of 600,000 warrants to the Subsidiary through Warrant Program 2019/2022. The incentive program includes the persons who are or will be employed by the Company (but not fixed-term employees) including the CEO of the Company. The warrant holders have the right to, during the period from and including 1 May 2022 to and including 30 June 2022, call for subscription of a new share in the Company at a subscription price corresponding to 140 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period from 26 March 2019 until 8 April 2019.

The annual general meeting resolved on 14 April 2020 to issue a maximum of 300,000 warrants to the Subsidiary through Warrants Program 2020/2023. The incentive program includes the persons who are or will be employed by the Company (but not fixed-term employees) including the CEO of the Company.

The warrant holders have the right to, during the period from and including 1 May 2023 to and including 30 June 2023, call for subscription of a new share in the Company at a subscription price corresponding to 120 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period from 31 March 2020 until 13 April 2020.

The annual general meeting resolved on 27 April 2021 to issue a maximum of 300,000 warrants to the Subsidiary, which as of today holds 82,497 of these, through Warrant Program 2021/2024:1. The incentive program includes the persons who are or will be employed by the Company (but not fixed-term employees) including the CEO of the Company. The warrant holders have the right to, during the period from and including 15 May 2024 to and including 30 September 2024, call for subscription of a new share in the Company at a subscription price corresponding to 130 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period of ten (10) trading days ending on 23 April 2021.

The annual general meeting resolved on 27 April 2021 to issue a maximum of 300,000 warrants to the Subsidiary, which as of today holds 192,862 of these, through Warrant Program 2021/2024:2. The incentive program includes the persons who are or will be employed by the Company (but not fixed-term employees) including the CEO of the Company. The warrant holders have the right to, during the period from and including 15 November 2024 to and including 31 Mars 2025, call for subscription of a new share in the Company at a subscription price corresponding to 130 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period of ten (10) trading days beginning on 28 October 2021.

Besides Warrant Program 2022/2026, the board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting of 26 April 2022 resolves to implement Warrant Program 2023/2026 (see item 13).

If (i) all outstanding warrants issued in connection with the ongoing incentive programs, excluding the warrants held by the Subsidiary, are exercised in full for subscription of shares, (ii) the general meeting resolves on the implementation of Warrant Program 2022/2026 and Warrant Program 2023/2026 in accordance with the proposals, and (iii) all warrants that can be issued in or in connection with Warrant Program 2022/2026 and Warrant Program 2023/2026 are exercised for subscription of shares, the number of shares and votes in the Company will increase by 1,824,641, which corresponds to a total dilution of approximately 6.62 per cent of the number of shares and votes in the Company.

The above estimates are subject to revaluations of the warrants under the usual translation terms contained in the full terms. All dilution effects have been calculated as the number of additional shares in relation to the number of existing plus additional shares.

Preparation of the proposal
The proposal for resolution on the implementation of Warrant Program 2022/2026 and the proposals of resolutions according to item 12.A and 12.B above, have been prepared by the board of directors together with external advisors. Board members will not be allotted. The CEO, who may be granted warrants in Warrant Program 2022/2026, has not participated in the preparation of the proposal.

Majority requirements
The resolution of the annual general meeting in accordance with the board of directors' proposals under items 12.A-B above is proposed to be adopted as a joint decision. A valid resolution requires that the resolution is supported by shareholders with at least nine tenths (9/10) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the annual general meeting.

Item 13 - Proposal for a decision on the directed issue of warrants and approval of the subsidiary's transfer pursuant to Chapter 16 section 4 second paragraph of the Companies Act

Background and motive
The board of directors has proposed that the annual general meeting resolves on a warrant-based incentive program for individuals who are or will be Employees (including the CEO) in the Company in accordance with the conditions set out below ("Warrant Program 2023/2026").

The purpose of the proposed program and the reasons for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights are that the board of directors believes that a warrant program that allows the Employees to gain access to the Company's value development promotes participation and accountability and brings increased motivation to promote favourable economic development in the Company.

In light of the above, the board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting resolve to (A) issue warrants series 2023/2026 to the Subsidiary and (B) approve transfer of warrants series 2023/2026 from the Subsidiary to the Employees in accordance with item 13.B below. Items (A) and (B) constitute an overall proposal and shall be resolved upon as one resolution by the annual general meeting.

Item 13.A - Directed issue of warrants

For the implementation of Warrant Program 2023/2026, the board of directors propose that the annual general meeting resolves to issue a maximum of 300,000 warrants of series 2023/2026, implying an increase in the share capital upon full exercise with a maximum of SEK 15,000.

  6. Subscription of shares under the warrants may take place during the period from 25 March 2026 up to and including 8 May 2026. The premium per share shall be transferred to the free share premium reserve (Sw. fria överkursfonden).

The subscription price per share shall correspond to 150 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period of ten (10) trading days ending on 3 March 2023, however the subscription price per share shall never be less than the quota value of the share. The subscription price shall be rounded to the nearest SEK 0.01, whereupon SEK 0.005 shall be rounded upwards.
  8. The shares subscribed for on the basis of the warrants shall entitle the holder to a distribution of profits for the first time on the first record date of dividends that occur after the subscription of shares has been exercised through the exercise of the warrants.
  9. Applicable re-calculation terms and other terms and conditions for the warrants can be found in "Terms and conditions for warrants series 2023/2026 for new subscription of shares in Acconeer AB (publ)".
  10. The board of directors, or the one the board of directors appoints, is authorised to make minor adjustments to the annual general meeting's decisions and attachments that may prove necessary in connection with the registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office or, where applicable, Euroclear Sweden AB.

Item 13.B - Approval of transfer of warrants to Employees
Warrant Program 2023/2026 shall be carried out mainly as described below.

  1. The warrants shall, for payment, be transferred by the Subsidiary on 10 March 2023, or on the later date decided by the board of directors, to the Employees in accordance with the guidelines set out below.
  2. Transfer according to item 13.B.1 shall be made at market value at the respective transfer dates, which shall be determined by Optionspartner AB or another independent valuation institute, using the Black & Scholes valuation model.
  3. Warrants shall be allotted in accordance with the following guidelines:
    * On each respective transfer date, every Employee shall be given the opportunity to acquire warrants to an amount equivalent to no more than one fifth (1/5) of the Employee's annual income prior to income tax.
    * No more than 300,000 warrants in total may be allotted on each occasion.
  4. There will be no guaranteed allotment and over-subscription cannot occur. In case the subscription of warrants exceeds the highest amount of warrants which may be allotted, allotment of warrants will be made proportionally in accordance with each Employee's annual income prior to income tax or, to the extent that allotment cannot be made this way, by the drawing of lots.
  5. Transfer of warrants may not take place after the annual general meeting 2023, after which non-transferred warrants shall be cancelled. Such cancellation of warrants shall be reported to the Swedish Companies Registration Office for duly registration.
  6. The right to transfer warrants in Warrant Program 2023/2026 assumes that (i) the Employee holds his/her position or has signed an agreement thereon by the time of the allotment and not announced or been informed at that time that the employment is intended to be terminated, (ii) that acquisition of warrants can take place in accordance with applicable laws and, according to the board of directors' assessment, can be executed with reasonable administrative costs and financial efforts, and (iii) that the Employee and/or, in applicable cases, the participant's company has entered into an agreement with the Company, according to which the Company, or the one the Company assigns, under certain circumstances has the right to repurchase the warrants from the participant/company if the participant's employment/consultancy assignment ceases or if the participant/company wishes to transfer the warrants before they can be exercised for subscription of shares. The board of directors has the right to make the reasonable changes and adjustments to the terms and conditions of the agreement that are deemed suitable or appropriate as a result of local employment law or tax law or administrative conditions.
  7. For participants in other jurisdictions than Sweden, it is implied that transfer of warrants is legally possible and that transfer, in the board of directors' opinion, can be carried out with reasonable administrative and financial efforts at their established fair market value. The board of directors shall be authorised to adjust the terms and conditions of the Warrants Program 2023/2026 to the extent required in order for allotment of warrants to participants in other jurisdictions, to the extent practically possible, to be carried out under the same conditions imposed by the Warrants Program 2023/2026.

Award criteria
No award criteria, beyond what is stated in item 13.B.6 above, have been resolved upon to receive allocation in the incentive program. The board of directors believes that a broad program that includes all Employees provides the best conditions to achieve the board of directors' goals of implementing the program: committed, motivated and competent co-workers.

Valuation
Subscription of the warrants shall be made at a price equal to the warrant's fair market value the day of subscription. The warrants' fair market value, according to a preliminary valuation based on assumptions of the market value of the underlying share of SEK 48.23 at subscription and an exercise price of SEK 72.34 per share, SEK 6.93 per warrant. The Black & Scholes valuation model has been used for the valuation, assuming a risk-free interest rate of 0.549 per cent and a volatility assumption of 41.7 per cent, taking into account the expected dividends and other value transfers to the shareholders. With respect to restrictions on disposal of, and the illiquidity in the warrants, a so-called illiquidity discount of 15.2 per cent has been applied to the warrants' value. The final price for the warrants will be established in connection with each subscription occasion to the Employees and will be based on market conditions prevailing at that time.

Costs
Since the warrants are subscribed for at market value, the Company is of the opinion that there will be no social costs for the Company as a result of the issue. However, some costs may arise if the subscription price exceeds the initially estimated market value. The costs will therefore mainly consist of limited costs for the implementation and administration of the warrants. Warrant Program 2023/2026 is not expected to entail any costs of significance to the Company. For this reason, no measures for hedging the program have been taken.

Dilution, previous incentive programs and effects on key ratios
As per the day of this proposal, there are 25,720,750 shares in the Company. Assuming that all warrants that can be issued under Warrant Program 2023/2026 are exercised for subscription of new shares, the number of shares and votes in the Company will increase by 300,000, which corresponds to a dilution of approximately 1.15 per cent of the number of shares and votes in Company. The dilution is expected to have a marginal impact on the Company's key ratios.

The Company currently has four ongoing share-based incentive programs: Warrant Program 2019/2022, Warrant Program 2020/2023, Warrant Program 2021/2024:1 and Warrant Program 2021/2024:2.

The annual general meeting resolved on 9 April 2019 to issue a maximum of 600,000 warrants to the Subsidiary through Warrant Program 2019/2022. The incentive program includes the persons who are or will be employed by the Company (but not fixed-term employees) including the CEO of the Company. The warrant holders have the right to, during the period from and including 1 May 2022 to and including 30 June 2022, call for subscription of a new share in the Company at a subscription price corresponding to 140 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period from 26 March 2019 until 8 April 2019.

The annual general meeting resolved on 14 April 2020 to issue a maximum of 300,000 warrants to the Subsidiary through Warrants Program 2020/2023. The incentive program includes the persons who are or will be employed by the Company (but not fixed-term employees) including the CEO of the Company. The warrant holders have the right to, during the period from and including 1 May 2023 to and including 30 June 2023, call for subscription of a new share in the Company at a subscription price corresponding to 120 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period from 31 March 2020 until 13 April 2020.

The annual general meeting resolved on 27 April 2021 to issue a maximum of 300,000 warrants to the Subsidiary, which as of today holds 82 497 of these, through Warrant Program 2021/2024:1. The incentive program includes the persons who are or will be employed by the Company (but not fixed-term employees) including the CEO of the Company. The warrant holders have the right to, during the period from and including 15 May 2024 to and including 30 September 2024, call for subscription of a new share in the Company at a subscription price corresponding to 130 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period of ten (10) trading days ending on 23 April 2021.

The annual general meeting resolved on 27 April 2021 to issue a maximum of 300,000 warrants to the Subsidiary, which as of today holds 192 862 of these, through Warrant Program 2021/2024:2. The incentive program includes the persons who are or will be employed by the Company (but not fixed-term employees) including the CEO of the Company. The warrant holders have the right to, during the period from and including 15 November 2024 to and including 31 Mars 2025, call for subscription of a new share in the Company at a subscription price corresponding to 130 per cent of the volume weighted average price according to Nasdaq First North Growth Market's official curriculum list for shares in the Company during the period of ten (10) trading days beginning on 28 October 2021.

Besides Warrant Program 2023/2026, the board of directors proposes that the annual general meeting of 26 April 2022 resolves to implement Warrant Program 2022/2026 (see item 12).

If (i) all outstanding warrants issued in connection with the ongoing incentive programs, excluding the warrants held by the Subsidiary, are exercised in full for subscription of shares, (ii) the general meeting resolves on the implementation of Warrant Program 2022/2026 and Warrant Program 2023/2026 in accordance with the proposals, and (iii) all warrants that can be issued in or in connection with Warrant Program 2022/2026 and Warrant Program 2023/2026 are exercised for subscription of shares, the number of shares and votes in the Company will increase by 1,824,641, which corresponds to a total dilution of approximately 6.62 per cent of the number of shares and votes in the Company.

The above estimates are subject to revaluations of the warrants under the usual translation terms contained in the full terms. All dilution effects have been calculated as the number of additional shares in relation to the number of existing plus additional shares.

Preparation of the proposal
The proposal for resolution on the implementation of Warrant Program 2023/2026 and the proposals of resolutions according to item 13.A and 13.B above, have been prepared by the board of directors together with external advisors. Board members will not be allotted. The CEO, who may be granted warrants in Warrant Program 2023/2026, has not participated in the preparation of the proposal.

Majority requirements
The resolution of the annual general meeting in accordance with the board of directors' proposals under items 13.A-B above is proposed to be adopted as a joint decision. A valid resolution requires that the resolution is supported by shareholders with at least nine tenths (9/10) of both the votes cast and the shares represented at the annual general meeting.

Item 14 - Proposal for a decision regarding authorisation of the board of directors to issue new shares
The board of directors proposes that the meeting authorises the board of directors until the next annual general meeting to, on one or more occasions, resolve to increase the Company's share capital by issue of no more than shares corresponding to twenty-five (25) per cent of the total number of shares in the Company at the time of the meeting's decision of authorisation.

However, such issues may not cause the share capital in the Company to exceed the Company's highest allowed share capital according to the articles of association. The board of directors may deviate from the shareholders' preferential rights. The reason for the board of directors' authorisation to deviate from the shareholders' preferential rights is to enable the Company to raise new capital and to take advantage of future opportunities to attract new long-term owners, and to finance the Company's growth strategy. The authorisation also includes the right to decide on payment for the issued shares by set-off, in kind or with other conditions as referred in Chapter 13, section 5, item 6 of the Swedish Companies Act (Sw. aktiebolagslagen (2005:551)). At a deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, the issue rate shall be determined in accordance with market conditions, taking into account any discount on market terms.

For a valid resolution on the proposal in this item 14, the proposal has to be supported by shareholders representing at least two-thirds (2/3) of the votes cast as well as shares represented at the meeting.

Available documents
The complete proposals and other documents that shall be made available prior to the annual general meeting pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act will be made available at the Company and at the Company's website, www.acconeer.com, at least three weeks prior to the annual general meeting. The documents will also be sent free of charge to shareholders who so request and provide their address to the Company. In other respects, the board of directors' complete proposals for resolutions are stated in the notice.

Information at the annual general meeting
The board of directors and the CEO shall, if any shareholder so requests and the board of directors believes that it can be done without material harm to the Company, provide information regarding circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda and circumstances that can affect the assessment of the Company's or its subsidiaries' financial situation and the Company's relation to other companies within the group.
