The 2010 Annual General Meeting of Schibsted resolved changes of the terms of the group’s option scheme to adjust for the effect of the rights issue that was carried out in July 2009. Adjustment of number of shares per option and exercise price was made in accordance with The Oslo Stock Exchange’s Derivatives Regulations, so that the value of the options is maintained after the share issue.
After the adjustment, each option entails the right to acquire 1.256 shares. Exercise price is adjusted by a factor of 0.797065. The same is the case for the maximum share price (goes for the 2009 and 2008 programmes). Other terms of the option scheme are unchanged.
The total number of outstanding options for Schibsted is 537,000, which entails the right to acquire 675,100 shares. Schibsted holds 4,700,141 own shares, of which 4,660,641 are held by Schibsted ASA, whereas 69,500 are held through the subsidiary Bergens Tidende AS.
