The purpose of the proposal is to create conditions to retain and increase motivation among all employees in the Company in Sweden and Denmark. The board of directors believes that it is in the interest of all shareholders that such individuals, which are deemed to be important for the group's development, have a long-term interest in a positive development of the Company's share price. Through the proposed program, a long-term ownership commitment is created, which is expected to stimulate an increased interest in the business and the Company's performance in general.

In order to secure the Company's commitments according to Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1, the board of directors proposes that the extra general meeting resolves on a directed issue of warrants and approval of transfer of warrants in accordance with what appears in item 7b.

Resolutions in accordance with items 7a and 7b below are taken as one decision and are thus conditional of each other. Resolutions in accordance with this item 7 requires support by shareholders holding not less than nine tenths of both the shares voted and of the shares represented at the general meeting.

The board of directors of the Company proposes that the extra general meeting resolves to adopt Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 according to the following main guidelines:

Participation in the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 requires that the participant acquires B shares in the Company ("Saving Shares"). For each Savings share, the participant has the opportunity to receive up to four (4) additional B shares in the Company. Allotment of shares requires the participant to retain their Savings Shares for the entire period running from and including 1 October 2024 to and including 1 October 2027 (the "Saving Period"). One (1) share is awarded if the participant's employment within the Biovica Group is not terminated by the Company or the group before the end of the Savings Period ("Retention Share"). If it is exceeded as defined below, up to three (3) additional shares ("Performance Shares") will be awarded.

Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 is proposed to comprise all employees within the Biovica group's operations in Sweden and Denmark and to include a maximum of 466 200 Performance Shares and a maximum of 155 400 Retention Shares.

In order for Performance Shares to be awarded, a performance target regarding the annual average total return on Biovica's B share during the program must be achieved ("Performance Target"). Performance Shares are awarded as follows:

a. if the total return on Biovica's B share amounts to at least 120 percent during the Savings Period, one (1) Performance Share is awarded;

b. if the total return on Biovica's B share amounts to at least 150 percent during the Savings Period, two (2) Performance Shares are awarded; and

c. if the total return on Biovica's B share amounts to at least 170 percent during the Savings Period, three (3) Performance Shares are awarded.

The total return shall be measured by comparing the volume-weighted average price paid for the Biovica share during the 20 trading days prior to 1 October 2024 with the volume-weighted average price paid for the Biovica share during the corresponding period in 2027.

The number of shares that each participant shall be entitled to subscribe for under Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number.

Provided that Performance Shares and Retention Shares have vested, each Performance Share and Retention Share entitles the holder to no earlier than three years after the program start (1 October 2027) in accordance with the restrictions stated in this proposal and according to the Company's decision, either (a) acquire one (1) B share at a price corresponding to the quota value of the share (the Company's current quota is approximately SEK 0,06666666671267170 per share) or (b) obtain a free of charge warrant that entitles the subscription of one (1) B share in the Company to a subscription price corresponding to the quota value of the share.

The board of directors also has the right to advance vesting and the timing of exercise of stock options in certain cases, such as in the case of a public takeover offer, certain changes in ownership of the Company, liquidation, merger and similar measures. Finally, the board of directors has the right to, in extraordinary cases, limit the scope of, or prematurely terminate, the Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 in whole or in part.

Item 9b: Resolution to issue warrants and approval of transfer of warrants
In order to enable the Company's delivery of B shares under the Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 the board of directors proposes that the extra general meeting resolves on a directed issue of warrants of series 2024/2027:5 as well as an approval of transfer of warrants of series 2024/2027:5.

The board of directors of the Company proposes that the extra general meeting resolves to issue a maximum of 176 400 warrants of series 2024/2027:5 which may result in a maximum increase in the Company's share capital of SEK 11 760,000008. The warrants shall entitle to subscription of new B shares in the Company.

The following terms shall apply to the issuance:

The warrants may, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, be subscribed for by the Company and any other group company.

The warrants are issued at no consideration and shall be subscribed for through a separate subscription list no later than on 1 September 2024. The board of directors has the right to extend the time for subscription.

Each warrant of series 2024/2027:5 entitles to subscription of one new B share in the Company during the period from 1 October 2027 to an including 1 November 2027 or the earlier date set forth in the terms for the warrants. The board of directors shall have the right to extend the time for subscription for shares in the event that participants are prevented from subscribing for shares at the end of the subscription period due to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

Each warrant series 2024/2027:5 entitles to subscribe for one new B share in the Company against cash payment at a subscription price corresponding to 150 percent of the average volume weighted price for the Company's share as quoted on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market during the period from and including 22 August 2024 up to and including 4 September 2024. The calculated subscription price shall be rounded off to nearest even hundredth of a SEK, whereupon SEK 0.005 will be rounded to SEK 0.01. The subscription price may not be set below the shares' par value. Upon subscription of shares, the part of the subscription price that exceeds the quotient value of the previous shares shall be allocated to the non-restricted share premium fund.

A new share subscribed for by exercise of a warrant has a right to dividends as of the first record day for dividends following registration of the new share issue with the Companies Registration Office and after the share has been registered in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB.

The purpose of the issuance, and deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, is to, within the framework of Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1, secure delivery of shares to the participants of the program.

The full terms and conditions for the warrants are available at the Company no later than two weeks before the meeting, which means, that the subscription price and the number of shares that the warrant entitles to subscription may be recalculated in certain cases.

The board of directors or a person nominated by it, shall be authorized to make such minor adjustments as may be required in connection with registration of the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and, if applicable, Euroclear Sweden AB.

The board of directors further proposes that the extra general meeting resolves to approve that the Company or any other group company, may transfer warrants to the participants in the Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 without consideration in connection with exercise of the stock options in accordance with the terms set out in item 9a or in another way dispose of the warrants in order to be able to secure the Company's commitments in relation to the Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1.

The board of directors shall not have the right to dispose of the warrants for any other purpose than to secure the Company's commitments in connection with the Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1.

Item 10: Resolution regarding performance share program for senior executives, employees and key personnel within the Company and the group in the United States.
Background and rationale
The board of directors of the Company proposes that the extra general meeting resolves to implement a performance share program for senior executives, employees and other key individuals in the Company and group in the US ("Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1") in accordance with below.

The purpose of the proposal is to create conditions to retain and increase motivation among senior executives, employees and other key individuals in the Company and group in the US. The board of directors believes that it is in the interest of all shareholders that senior executives and other key individuals, which are deemed to be important for the group's development in the US, have a long-term interest in a positive development of the Company's share price. Through the proposed program, a long-term ownership commitment is created, which is expected to stimulate an increased interest in the business and the Company's performance in general.

In order to secure the Company´s commitments according to Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1, the board of directors proposes that the extra general meeting resolves on a directed issue of warrants and approval of transfer of warrants in accordance with what appears in item 10b.

Resolutions in accordance with item 10a and 10b below are taken as one decision and are thus conditional of each other. Resolutions in accordance with this item 10 requires support by shareholders holding not less than nine tenths of both the shares voted and of the shares represented at the general meeting.

A presentation of other incentive programs, preparation of the proposal, costs for the programs and effects on key performance measures etc. are described below.

Item 10a: Resolution to adopt a performance share program
The board of directors of the Company proposes that the extra general meeting resolves to adopt Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 according to the following guidelines:

Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 shall include a maximum of 176,400 Performance Shares.

Performance Shares that have vested will entitle to subscription for shares at a price corresponding to the quota value of the share provided that a performance target regarding the average annual share price development of the Biovica share ("CAGR") during the program is achieved. For the performance target to be fulfilled the average annual CAGR need be at least 14 percent. At an average CAGR that meets or exceeds 14 percent, 100 percent of the Performance Shares will entitle to subscription of B-shares to the quota value of the share. At an average CAGR that does not meet or exceed 14 percent, 0 percent of the Performance Shares will entitle to subscription of B shares to the quota value of the share. Average CAGR shall be measured by comparing the volume weighted average share price of the Biovica share during twenty (20) days of trading prior to 1 October 2024 with the volume weighted average share price of the Biovica share during the corresponding period in 2027.

The number of B shares that each participant shall be entitled to subscribe for under Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number.

Provided that Performance Shares have vested and that the performance target has been achieved, each Performance Share entitles the holder to no earlier than three years after program start (1 October 2027) in accordance with the restrictions stated in this proposal and according to the Company's decision, either (a) acquire one (1) B share at a price corresponding to the quota value of the share (the Company's current quota is SEK 0,06666666671267170 per share) or (b) obtain free of charge a warrant that entitles the subscription of one (1) B share in the Company to a subscription price corresponding to the quota value of the share.

Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 shall be offered to all current senior executives and other key employees in the US group up to and including 1 October 2024. The board of directors shall have the right to extend the notification period, however until 30 November at the latest.

Senior executives and other employees within the Company and the group in the US will, within the framework of the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1, be offered Performance Shares divided into three different categories as follows:

A. Persons in the company management within the Company's American group consisting of one (1) person, may be offered a maximum of 33,600 Performance Shares;

B. A maximum of three (3) senior executives within the group may be offered a maximum of 25,200 Performance Shares each and a maximum of 75,600 Performance Shares in total;

C. A maximum of three (3) other key individuals within the Company's American group may be offered a maximum of 16 800 Performance Shares each and a maximum of 50,400 Performance Shares in total; and

D. Other employees within the group consisting of up to two (2) people may each be offered a maximum of 8,400 Performance Shares each and a maximum of 16,800 Performance Shares in total.

Performance Shares offered to the categories above, which are not accepted by the categories above, may be offered to existing (who do not subscribe for their full number of offered Performance Shares) senior executives or other key employees of the group in the US. Oversubscription cannot take place. If any person within the above-mentioned categories does not subscribe for their full number of Performance Shares, such Performance Share may be granted to an employee within another category.

The Company's board of directors shall not be covered by the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1.

Application to participate in Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 must have been received by the Company no later than 20 September 2024.

In the event that a participant's employment within the Biovica group ends before Performance Shares have been allocated, the right to allocation of Performance Shares expires, with customary exceptions for so-called "good leavers".

Vesting requires that the participant is still active within the group and that the employment has not been terminated their employment or consulting agreement as of the date when the vesting occurs.

The holder of Performance Shares can exercise granted and vested Performance Shares to acquire shares after the outcome of the performance condition has been determined by the board, until 1 November 2027. The board shall have the right to extend the exercise period, however no longer than 31 December 2024.

The Performance Shares must not constitute securities and cannot be transferred or pledged. However, the rights according to vested Performance Shares may be transferred to the estate in the event of the participant´s death.

Participation in the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 presupposes that such participation can legally take place, and that, according to the Company's assessment, such participation can take place with reasonable administrative costs and financial contributions.

The Performance Shares shall be regulated in agreements with the respective participants. The board shall be responsible for the design and management of the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 within the framework of the main conditions and guidelines stated above. The board has the right, within the framework of the agreement with respective participants, to make the reasonable changes and adjustments to the terms of Performance Shares that are deemed appropriate or expedient as a result of local labor law or tax law rules or administrative conditions. It can i.e., mean that continued earning of Performance Shares may take place in certain cases where this would not otherwise have been the case. The board also has the right to advance vesting and the timing of exercise of Performance Shares in certain cases, such as in the event of a public takeover offer, certain ownership changes in the Company, liquidation, merger and similar measures. Finally, the board has the right to, in extraordinary cases, limit the scope of or prematurely terminate Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 in whole or in part.

Item 10b: Resolution to issue warrants and approval of transfer of warrants
In order to enable the delivery of B shares according to the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 the board of directors for the Company proposes that the extra general meeting resolves on a directed issue of warrants of series 2024/2027:6 and approval of the transfer of warrants of series 2024/2027:6.

The board of directors proposes that the extra general meeting resolves to issue a maximum of 176,400 warrants, as a result of which the company's share capital may increase by a maximum of SEK 11,760.000008.

The warrants shall entail the right to subscribe for new B shares in the company.

For the issue, the following conditions shall apply:

The right to subscribe for the warrants shall, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential right, accrue to the Company and other group companies.

The warrants are issued free of charge and must be subscribed on a special subscription list no later than on 1 October 2024. The board have the right to extend the subscription period.

Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one new class B share in the Company during the period from registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office up to and including 1 November 2027, or the earlier day that follows from the terms of the warrants. The board have the right to extend the time for share subscription if participants are prevented from subscribing for shares at the end of the subscription period due to the EU's Market Abuse Regulation.

Each warrant gives the right to subscribe for a new B share in the Company against cash payment according to a subscription price that corresponds to the share's quota value.

A new share subscribed for by exercising a warrant carries the right to a dividend for the first time on the record date for the dividend that falls closest after the new shares have been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and the shares have been entered in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB.

The purpose of the issue and the deviation from the shareholders' preferential right is to ensure delivery of shares to participants in the program within the framework of the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1.

The full terms and conditions for the warrants are available at the Company no later than two weeks before the meeting, which means, that the subscription price and the number of shares that the warrant entitles to subscription may be recalculated in certain cases.

The board of directors, or the person that the board of directors may appoint, shall be authorized to make minor adjustment necessary in connection with the registration of the resolution with the Swedish Companies Registration Office or, where applicable, Euroclear Sweden AB.

The board of directors further proposes that the extra general meeting resolves to approve that the Company or another group company may transfer warrants to participants in the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 free of charge in connection with the exercise of Performance Shares in accordance with the conditions in item 10a or otherwise dispose of the warrants to secure the Company's commitments due to the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1.

The board of directors shall not have the right to dispose the warrants for any other purpose than to secure the Company's commitments in connection with the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1.

Preparation of incentive programs etc. (it is noted that this is not a topic for resolution)
Proposal on Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1, Share Savings Program 2024/2027:2, Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 and Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 has been prepared by external advisors in consultation with the remuneration committee, the board of directors and Mats Danielsson.

Valuation and Costs and effects on key figures

Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1
Costs related to Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 will be reported in accordance with IFRS 2, which means that the Performance Shares must be expensed as a personnel cost over the vesting period without impact on the Company's cash flow.

If Performance Shares are used, the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 will additionally entail costs in the form of social security contributions. The total costs for social security contributions depend partly on the participant's employment relationship, partly on how many Performance Shares are earned, and partly on the value of the benefit that the participant ultimately receives, i.e. The value of the Performance Shares upon exercise in 2027. Social security contributions will be expensed in the income statement during the vesting period.

Based on the assumption that all 466,200 Performance Shares and 155,400 Retention Shares included in the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 are allocated, an assumed share price of SEK 4.59 when the Performance Shares and Retention Shares are used and an assumed average percentage for social security contributions of approximately 31,42 percent, the total the costs of the program, including social security contributions, to amount to approximately SEK 2,204,000, which corresponds to approximately 2.6 percent of the Company's total annual salary costs for employees (including social security contributions) calculated on salary costs for the financial year 2023/2024.

The total costs for the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 will be distributed over the years 2024–2027.

It should be noted that all calculations above are preliminary, based on assumptions and only aim to provide an illustration of the costs that the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:1 may entail. Actual costs may thus deviate from what is stated above.

Share Savings Program 2024/2027:2
Costs related to Share Savings Program 2024/2027:2 will be reported in accordance with IFRS 2, which means that the Performance Shares must be expensed as a personnel cost over the vesting period without impact on the Company's cash flow.

If Performance Shares are used, the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:2 will additionally entail costs in the form of social security contributions. The total costs for social security contributions depend partly on the participant's assignment, partly on how many Performance Shares are earned, and partly on the value of the benefit that the participant ultimately receives, i.e. The value of the Performance Shares upon exercise in 2027. Social security contributions will be expensed in the income statement during the vesting period.

Based on the assumption that all 315,000 Performance Shares and 105,000 Retention Shares included in the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:2 are allocated, an assumed share price of SEK 4.59 when the Performance Shares and Retention Shares are used and an assumed average percentage for social security contributions of approximately 31,42 percent, the total the costs of the program, including social security contributions, to amount to approximately SEK 1,489,000, which corresponds to approximately 1.7 percent of the Company's total annual salary costs for employees (including social security contributions) calculated on salary costs for the financial year 2023/2024.

The total costs for the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:2 will be distributed over the years 2024–2027.

It should be noted that all calculations above are preliminary, based on assumptions and only aim to provide an illustration of the costs that the Share Savings Program 2024/2027:2 may entail. Actual costs may thus deviate from what is stated above.

Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1
Costs related to Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 will be recognized in accordance with IFRS 2, which means that the stock options are expensed as personnel costs during the vesting period.

Based on the assumption 100 percent of the options in the Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 will be allotted and an annual employee turnover rate of 0 percent, meaning that 176,400 stock options will vest, the estimated total accounting salary costs for the options will amount to approximately SEK 195,000 during the time period 2024-2027, based on the actual value of the options at the time of calculation. The options do not have a market value since they are not transferable. However, the board of directors, with assistance of an independent valuator, has calculated a theoretical value of the options in accordance with the Black Scholes formula. The calculations have been based on a by the board of directors estimated share price of SEK 4,05 per share, a risk-free interest rate of 2.4 percent and an assumed volatility of 77 percent. In accordance with this valuation, the value of the options in the Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 is approximately SEK 1.11 per option. Limitations in the disposal rights have not been taken into consideration in the valuation.

Upon a positive development of the share price, the Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 may entail costs in the form of social security contributions. The total costs for social security contributions will depend on the employment form of the participant, the number of options that will be vested and on the value of the benefit that the participant finally will receive, i.e. on the value of the options when exercised 2027, but also in which countries the participants are resident and what rates that apply for social security contributions in these countries. Based on the assumption that 176,400 options in Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 will be vested, an assumed share price of SEK 4.05 when the options are exercised and an assumed average social security rate of approximately 9 percent, the total costs for social security contributions will amount to approximately SEK 9,000.

The total cost for Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 will be distributed over the years 2024-2027.

Given the above assumptions, including an assumed share price of SEK 4.05 at the time of exercise of the options, and that the program had been introduced in 2022/2023 instead, it is calculated that the key figure earnings per share for full year 2023/2024 would have decreased from SEK -2.14 to SEK -2.14.

It shall be noted that all calculations above are preliminary, based on assumptions and are only intended to provide an illustration of what costs Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 may entail. Actual costs may therefore deviate from what has been stated above.

Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1
Costs related to the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 will be reported in accordance with IFRS 2, which means that the Performance Shares shall be expensed as a personnel cost over the vesting period without affecting the Company's cash flow.

If performance share rights are exercised, Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 will in addition entail costs in the form of social security contributions. The total costs for social security contributions depend partly on the participant's employment relationship, partly on how many performance share rights are earned, and partly on the value of the benefit that the participant ultimately receives, i.e. the value of the performance share rights upon exercise in 2027. Social security contributions .will be expensed in the income statement during the vesting period.

Based on the assumption that all 176,400 Performance Shares included in the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 are allotted, an assumed share price of SEK 4.59 when exercising the performance share rights and an assumed average percentage for social security contributions of approximately 9 percent, the total costs for the program, including social security contributions, are estimated to amount to approximately SEK 405,000, which corresponds to approximately 0,5 percent of the Company's total annual salary costs for employees (including social security contributions) calculated on salary costs for the financial year 2023/2024.

The total costs for the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 will be distributed over the years 2024–2027.

It should be noted that all calculations above are preliminary, based on assumptions and only aim to provide an illustration of the costs that the Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 may entail. Actual costs may thus deviate from what is stated above.

Costs in the form of fees to external advisers and costs for administering Employee Stock Option Program 2024/2027:1 and Performance Share Program 2024/2027:1 are estimated to amount to approximately SEK 125,000.
