The Meeting resolved on the nomination committee's proposal for Nomination Committee and nomination procedure for the Annual General Meeting 2015.

The Meeting resolved to authorize the Board of Directors to resolve, at one or more occasions until the next Annual General Meeting 2015, to issue new shares with consideration in cash and/or with consideration in kind or by set-off and also be able to resolve to disapply the shareholders' pre-emption rights. The purpose with the authorization and the reason for disapplying the shareholders' pre-emption rights is to enable the Company to make business acquisitions and to raise capital for the Company's business operations. The total number of shares that can be issued based on the authorization may not exceed 10 per cent of the total number of shares in the Company. In case it is resolved to deviate from the shareholders pre-emption rights, the share issue shall be made in accordance with market conditions.

The Meeting resolved to authorize the Board of Directors to, up until the Annual General Meeting 2015, resolve on purchases of Tethys Oil's AB own shares, in accordance with the following.

  1. Purchases may be effected on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm.
  2. The authorization may be used at one or several occasions before the Annual General Meeting 2015.
  3. Purchases may be made by a maximum of so many shares that the company's holding of own shares after the purchase amounts to a maximum of one-tenth of all the shares in the company.
  4. Purchases of the company's own shares may be effected on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm within the registered price interval from time to time.


The main reason of possible purchases is to give the company flexibility regarding its equity and thereby optimize the capital structure of the company. Possible purchases may also enable own shares to be used as payment at, or financing of, an acquisition of a company or a business. The Board of Directors shall have the right to determine other conditions of the purchase in accordance with the authorization.
