LANDSKRONA, Sweden — The Board of Directors of Haldex AB has decided to withdraw the previously communicated proposal to the Annual General Meeting 2022 of confirmation of allotment under the incentive program for the CEO which was approved by the Annual General Meeting 2021 (2021 LTI).
The 2021 LTI gave the CEO the right to, under certain conditions, acquire Haldex shares against a pre-defined strike price (the Options). For participation in the 2021 LTI the CEO was required to own a certain number of shares in Haldex (“Qualifying Shares”). Pursuant to the terms of the 2021 LTI, the CEO were to acquire the Qualifying Shares and Options were to be allotted no later than 31 July 2021. However, these conditions where not fulfilled in time. The CEO acquired 16,000 Qualifying Shares in the end of December 2021. Against this background, the Board of Directors proposed that the Annual General Meeting 2022 should resolve to approve an allotment of 48,000 Options pursuant to the terms of the 2021 LTI.
The Board of Directors has now decided to withdraw this proposal (item 15 in the proposed agenda included in the notice of Annual General Meeting 2022). The reasons behind the decision to withdraw the proposal is that the Board of Directors considers that, taking into account the current uncertain external factors and their impact on Haldex, the incentive program will not achieve its intended purpose. The Board of Directors will consider a revised incentive program for the CEO, which may be proposed for approval either by the Annual General Meeting 2023 or by an Extraordinary General Meeting held prior to that date.
The Company’s Annual General Meeting will be held on 24 May 2022.
