The Board of Directors’ primary priority is to ensure that Fingerprints has a financial position that is sufficient to support both organic growth and selective acquisitions. Fingerprints also wants to maintain a strong balance sheet. The payment of capital to the shareholders must be aligned with the earnings trend and cash flow, while taking into account the company’s growth opportunities and financial position.
The Board of Directors propose that no dividend should be paid for the fiscal year 2016.
In addition, the Board proposes that the AGM resolve to reduce the share capital through the cancelation of the bought back shares, as well as a bonus issue. The Board will also propose to the AGM that the Board be empowered on one or several occasions during the period up to the following
AGM to make decisions on the buyback of the company’s shares, although subject to limit that the number of new shares will not exceed 10% of all of the shares in the company. The shares are to be acquired on Nasdaq Stockholm.
In addition, the Board will propose that during the period up to the following AGM to be empowered on one or several occasions to make decisions on the transfer of the company’s Class B treasury shares. The shares are to be transferred via Nasdaq Stockholm. The purpose of the authorizations is to enable the Board to adapt the company’s capital structure and thus be able to contribute to increased shareholder value. The Board of Directors’ complete motions concerning the dividend, the share cancelations and the authorizations will be available at the time that the official notice of the AGM is distributed.
