Ownership Structure


The table below sets out the current ownership structure of Cognosec AB as per May, 2018.


Dividend Policy


In the short-term, no dividends to shareholders shall be payable as the Company’s development and expansion ambitions will be given priority.

The Company’s dividend policy moving forward is that the Board will determine whether any dividends shall be payable based upon the Company’s performance and distributable profits after each set of full year audited accounts. This decision will take into account capital requirements to invest for growth, including organic expansion, merger and acquisition activities, and market outlook. All Shares carry equal rights to dividends as well as to the Company’s assets and potential surplus in the event of liquidation.

Resolutions regarding dividends are passed by general meetings. All shareholders registered as shareholders in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden on the record date adopted by the general meeting are entitled to receive dividends. Dividends are normally distributed to shareholders as a cash payment per share through Euroclear Sweden, but may also be paid out in a manner other than cash (in-kind dividend). If shareholders cannot be reached through Euroclear Sweden, such shareholder still retains its claim on the Company to the dividend amount, subject to a statutory limitation of ten years. Upon the expiry of the limitation period, the dividend amount shall pass to the Company.

There are no restrictions on the right to dividends for shareholders domiciled outside Sweden. Payments to shareholders not resident in Sweden for tax purposes are normally subject to Swedish withholding tax.
