OSLO, Norway, Jan. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The Board of Directors of Nordic Nanovector ASA ("Nordic Nanovector" or the "Company") has on 29th of January 2018 decided to grant 216 550 Performance Share Units ("PSUs") to employees in accordance with the authorisation granted at the Extraordinary General Meeting held on 20 December 2017 (the "EGM").
The terms and conditions of the PSUs, which are part of the Company's new long-term incentive plan for employees, are described in the Board of Directors' amended proposal for share based incentive program, available in English and Norwegian at www.nordicnanovector.com/investors-and-media/corporate-governance/general-meetings.
The PSUs are granted without consideration. The PSU are non-transferable and will vest three years after the date of grant subject to satisfaction of the applicable vesting conditions described in appendix 3 to the summons to the EGM and the PSU agreements. Each vested PSUs will give the holder the right to acquire one share in the Company at an exercise price corresponding to the par value of the shares being NOK 0.20.
In accordance with the resolution at the EGM the PSUs and the options previously granted are secured by a corresponding number of free-standing warrants. The sole purpose of the warrants is to ensure delivery of shares in the Company upon exercise of the PSUs and options. The warrants do not give the PSU holders or the option holders a right to subscribe for any additional shares in the Company.
