Following the Annual General Meeting the Board of Directors convened and constituted itself with Mats Pettersson as Chairman and Dr. Anders Gersel Pedersen as Deputy Chairman.
Subsequently, at the meeting today the Board of Directors decided to issue 8,000 warrants to employees of the Company and one of the Company’s subsidiaries.
The exercise price for each warrant is DKK 215.60. Each warrant entitles the owner to subscribe one share of nominally DKK 1.

The warrants vest in blocks of 25% one, two, three and four years after the grant date, and all warrants expire at the seventh anniversary of the grant date.
