The CEO and other senior executives are remunerated partly by a fixed monthly salary and partly through variable compensation based on the groups profitability. The CEO’s variable compensation during the year may not exceed 80 per cent of the fixed salary, divided so that 60 per cent shall be based on the Company’s financial development and 20 per cent shall be based on targets determined by the board of directors. The variable compensation to the executive management may not exceed 60 per cent of the fixed salary and shall be based on the Company’s financial development. Variable compensation based on the Company’s financial development shall be calculated quarterly on the basis of the Company’s revenue growth and operating margin. A target range and a sum of normalized results are defined for both parameters. This in turn defines the result. The variable compensation is not included in the base for pension benefits. The pension plan is to be in line with normal conditions in the market and the same for senior executives as for other employees. The pension premium shall be defined contribution. Similarly, other benefits for senior executives shall be competitive and in substance the same as for other employees. The employment agreements with senior executives shall contain a notice period of at least 3 months for the employees and a maximum of 12 months from the Company.

The Chairman of the Board negotiates the yearly remuneration of the CEO and concludes agreements after approval from the board. The CEO negotiates compensation to senior executives and concludes agreements after approval by the Board. The Board may, if special reasons for doing so exist, make minor changes on an individual basis from the above guidelines.

Item 17 - Resolution regarding authorizing the Board of Directors to resolve to repurchase warrants issued under the option program 2015/2018

The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting until the next Annual General Meeting authorizes the Board of Directors, on one or more occasions, to resolve on the repurchase of warrants issued under the share-based incentive plan adopted at the annual general meeting 2015. The price for the repurchase of warrants shall correspond to the market value (which is to be based on the average volume-weighted price for the Company's share for a period close to period of repurchase).

A repurchase of warrants in accordance with this resolution shall be conditional upon each individual option holder wishing to have warrants redeemed at the same time utilizes an equivalent amount of the total number of warrants for subscription of new shares. Thus, oversubscription can be avoided. Example:  If the option holder wishes to have 50 per cent of its warrants repurchased by the Company, the option holder must utilize the remaining 50 per cent of warrants for subscription of new shares in the Company. If the option holder wishes to have 25 per cent of its warrants repurchased by the Company, the option holder must utilize at least 25 per cent of the total number of warrants for subscription of new shares in the Company.

The Board of Directors shall be authorized to resolve on the more detailed terms for the implementation of the repurchase of warrants as well as the administrative measures that may be required to implement this resolution.

The purpose of the repurchase of warrants is to avoid dilution of the Company’s shares as well as to offer the option holders the opportunity to acquire the value of the warrants. Repurchased warrants shall be held in the custody of the Company and expire without further transfer.

Preliminary results October-December 2017

Based on the information available for the period October-December 2017, G5 forecasts quarterly revenue of approximately SEK 356 M, which corresponds to achieving 93 per cent revenue growth compared to the same period of 2016. For the full year 2017, G5 forecasts revenue of approximately SEK 1,135 M, which corresponds to achieving 120 per cent revenue growth compared to 2016.

Vlad Suglobov, CEO, comments: "The fourth quarter, with its seasonal characteristics, has presented new opportunities to scale our user base and revenue. Like one year ago in Q4’16, we went ahead and increased our marketing spending to new levels, substantially higher than we had before. And just like one year ago, the resulting 33% quarter-to-quarter revenue growth shows that we did the right thing at the right time. As we have said before, Q4 and Q1 are historically the strongest growth quarters for G5, and we look forward to seeing how Q1’18 revenue develops following the increase in our marketing spend during the past quarter."

The group’s Year-end report for 2017 will be released on February 16, 2018.
