Item 16 The Board of Directors' proposal regarding authorization for the Board of Directors to resolve on transfer of own shares

Karolinska Development has previously, on the basis of authorizations from the Annual General Meeting, acquired own shares for the purpose of using these shares as a hedge to cover charges in the form of social security fees in the Company's Performance Share Program to employees resolved by the Annual General Meeting 2014 and 2015 (PSP 2014 and PSP 2015). For this purpose the Company holds 244,285 own shares of series B as per the date of this notice. On the basis of calculations of the Company's commitments in outstanding programs, it is currently estimated that no additional shares of series B are required to cover social security fees in the Company's outstanding share programs.

Each resolution to transfer shares for the purpose to cover charges of social security fees in the Performance Share Program has for legal reasons only been valid up to the following Annual General Meeting. Resolutions on transfer of own shares for this purpose have therefore been repeated at the subsequent Annual General Meeting.

The Board of Directors makes the assessment that it continues to be advantageous for the Company to be able to use repurchased shares as a hedge to cover social security fees in the Company's outstanding Performance Share Programs.

In view of the above, the Board of Directors proposes as follows.

The Board of Directors are proposed to be authorized to decide, on one or several occasions and until the next Annual General Meeting, to transfer earlier acquired shares of series B amounting to 244,285, to cover charges in the form of social security fees in PSP 2014 and PSP 2015. Transfer of the shares held by the Company may be executed with or without deviation from shareholders pre-emption right. Transfers shall be made on Nasdaq Stockholm. Transfers can only be made at a price within the price interval registered at each time for the share.

A resolution in accordance with the Board of Directors' proposal requires support from shareholders with not less than 2/3 of votes cast as well as shares represented at the meeting.

Item 17: The Board of Directors' proposal regarding authorization for the Board of Directors to resolve on new issues of shares

The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to authorize the Board of Directors, for the period up to the next Annual General Meeting to resolve, whether on one or several occasions, with or without deviation from the shareholders' pre-emption rights, and for payment in cash, by set-off or in kind, to issue new shares of series B up to a number that, at the time of the first resolution under this authorization, corresponds to ten (10) per cent of the total share capital; provided however that any such issue must not result in the Company's share capital exceeding the Company's maximum allowed share capital as set out in the articles of association.

A resolution in accordance with the Board of Directors' proposal requires support from shareholders with not less than 2/3 of votes cast as well as shares represented at the meeting.

Item 18: The Board of Directors' proposal regarding approval of new issue of warrants to employees in subsidiaries

According to Chapter 16 of the Swedish Companies Act (the "LEO Law") new issues of warrants in subsidiaries directed to directors or employees of the issuer or another group company, must in some cases be approved by the general meeting of the parent company.

Umecrine Cognition AB which is a subsidiary of Karolinska Development decided on March 2, 2017, to issue 398,228 warrants to personnel as follows.  The chairman of the board Kenth Bergström a maximum of 88,495 warrants; CEO Magnus Doverskog a maximum of 176,991 warrants; director Bruce Scharschmidt a maximum of 88,495 warrants; consultant Lars Öhman a maximum of 44,247 warrants. The purpose of the issuance is to implement an incentive program for certain key individuals within Umecrine Cognition AB. The warrants are issued at price of SEK 0.35 per warrant. Each warrant entitles to subscription for one new share in Umecrine Cognition AB at a price of SEK 40.

The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting approves the issue of warrants described above.

A resolution in accordance with the Board of Directors' proposal requires support from shareholders with not less than 9/10 of votes cast as well as shares represented at the meeting.

The proposal in full will be available on the Company's website.

Item 19 The Board of Directors' proposal for an incentive program for the company's employees by way of a (A) directed issue of warrants and (B) approval of transfer of warrants

The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves on an incentive program for the company's employees (the "Warrant Program" 2017/2020"). To implement Warrant Program 2017/2020, the Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves on a (A) directed issue of warrants series 2017/2020 with deviation from the shareholders' pre-emption right and the (B) approval of transfer of warrants to employees, on the following terms and conditions:

  1. Directed issue of warrants

A maximum of 3,216,836 warrants shall be issued. Each warrant shall entitle to subscription of one (1) new share of series B in the company. The right to subscription shall, with deviation from the shareholders' pre-emption right, shall vest in the company's wholly-owned subsidiary, KD Incentive AB, with right and obligation for the subsidiary to transfer warrants to employees in the company in accordance with article B below. The warrants shall be issued without consideration to KD Incentive AB. Subscription of the warrants shall be made no later than 4 June 2017 with a right for the Board to extend this time limit. Subscription of shares by virtue of the warrants may be effected as from 30 June 2020 up to and including 31 August 2020. The subscription price per share shall correspond to 250 % of the volume weighted mean value according to Nasdaq Stockholm's official price list for share of series B in the company during ten (10) trading days immediately following the Annual General Meeting 2017. A share which has been issued upon subscription, will entitle to dividends for the first time on the first record date for dividend occurring after the subscription of shares through exercise of warrants has been executed. The share capital may be increased by a maximum of SEK 32,168.36, provided that the reduction of share capital is decided upon under item 20 below, or SEK 1,608,418 if the reduction under item 20 is not executed, at the time of subscription for new shares, which corresponds to a dilution effect of approx. 4.8 per cent of outstanding shares and approx. 4.0 per cent of the votes. If all outstanding incentive program to employees in the company are included in the calculation the corresponding dilution amounts to approx. 5.7 per cent of the outstanding shares and approx. 4.7 per cent of the votes. The dilution has been calculated as the number of new shares in proportion to the number of existing and new shares. Shares which are issued after subscription will entitle to dividends for the first time at the record date for dividends occurring immediately thereafter. The reasons for the deviation from the shareholders' pre-emption right are that the Board is of the opinion that an option program which offers the employees the opportunity to share in the value of the company will enhance the commitment and responsibility, and results in an increased motivation to work for a favourable financial development of the company. An incentive program is also expected to improve the possibilities to recruit and retain competent, motivated and committed employees.

  1. Transfer of warrants

The warrants shall against payment be transferred by KD Incentive AB, at one or several occasions, to employees in the company. Transfer shall be made at market value at the time of transfer. First allotment of warrants shall be made in accordance with the following guidelines:

Category A (CEO) is allowed to acquire a maximum of 1,608,418 warrants.
Category B (Other members of Executive Management) is allowed to acquire a maximum of 402,105 warrants respectively, in total a maximum of 804,210 warrants.
Category C (Other personnel) is allowed to acquire a maximum of 107,228 warrants respectively, in total a maximum of 321,684 warrants.

First allocation is expected to be made in June 2017. The warrants remaining after the first allotment may be allotted to current and future employees at market value, applicable from time to time, in accordance with the allotment principles stated above. Participants have the right to subscribe for a larger number of warrants than stated by the guidelines above and may be allotted additional warrants if full subscription is not reached in the program. If such over-subscription occurs, allotment shall be made to the participants that wishes to subscribe for such additional warrants, pro-rated in relation to the number of warrants each participant have been allotted in the first allotment. 482,524 warrants and any warrants that have not been allocated in accordance with the above shall be reserved for future recruitments of employees in each category above of the group companies, whereby above stated guidelines for allotment shall be applicable. Transfer of warrants to future employees may not occur after March 2018. Right to allotment in the Warrant Program 2017/2020 requires that the employee, at the time of allotment, holds its position or has signed an agreement regarding it and has not, at such time, informed or been informed that the employment will be terminated. The company shall in connection with the transfer of warrants to the participant, reserve a pre-emption right regarding the warrants if the participant's employment with the company is terminated or if the participant wishes to transfer the warrants.

A resolution in accordance with the Board of Directors' proposal requires support from shareholders with not less than 9/10 of votes cast as well as shares represented at the meeting.

The proposal in full will be available on the Company's website.

Item 20 The Board of Directors' proposal regarding resolution on (A) amendment of the company's articles of association (B) reduction of the share capital

  1. Resolution regarding amendments of the articles of association

In order to reduce the company's share capital in accordance with the Board of Directors' proposal under sub-resolution 20 (B) below, amendment of the articles of association regarding the share capital limits is required.

The Board of Directors' therefore propose that the Annual General Meeting resolves to amend the company's share capital limits from not less than SEK 25,000,000 and not more than SEK 100,000,000 to not less than SEK 500,000 and not more than SEK 2,000,000.

If the Annual General Meeting resolves to change the share capital limits in accordance with the proposal, section 4 of the company's  articles of association will begin as follows:

"The company's share capital shall not be less than SEK 500,000 and not more than SEK 2,000,000."

Further, it is proposed that an editorial amendment is made under section 6 of the company's articles of association due to a name change of the stipulated act. Hereafter the company's articles of association is read as follows:

"The company's shares must be registered in a central securities depository register under the Central Securities Depository and Financial Instruments (Accounts) Act (SFS 1998:1479)."

  1. Decision regarding reduction of share capital without retirement of shares

The Board of Directors propose that the Annual General Meeting resolves on reduction of the company's share capital with SEK 31,524,981.04 (the reduction amount) without retirement of shares, and that the reduction amount is allocated to non-restricted equity in order to adjust the company's capital structure.

After the reduction, the Company's share capital will be SEK 643,366.96, divided on 64,336,696 shares, whereby the quota value for each share will be SEK 0.01.

To implement the resolution on reduction of the share capital without retirement of shares authorisation from the Swedish Companies Registration Office is required.

The sub-resolution 20 (A)-(B) above is subject to, and adopted as, a single joint resolution by the Annual General Meeting.
