Aspire Global shall each year hold an annual general meeting in addition to any other extraordinary general meetings in that year.
The annual general meeting shall be held once every year, within six months of the end of each financial year (however within a period of not more than 15 months after the holding of the last preceding annual general meeting).
All other general meetings shall be called extraordinary general meetings. General meetings, whether ordinary or extraordinary shall be held in Stockholm, Sweden or in Malta, as may be determined by the Board of Directors.
General meetings may be convened by the Board of Directors. General meetings may also be convened on the requisition of a shareholder or shareholders holding at the date of the deposit of such requisition not less than 10 percent of the paid-up share capital of Aspire Global. The requisition must state in writing the items to be put on the agenda as well as be signed by the shareholder(s) and deposited at the registered office of Aspire Global. If the Board of Directors does not within 21 days from the date of the deposit of the requisition convene a meeting, the relevant shareholder(s) may convene a meeting in the same manner within three months from the date of the deposit of the requisition.
Subject to any specific provisions of the Articles of Association and any applicable special voting rights, every shareholder present in person, by proxy (or proxies) or by a representative in the case the shareholder is a legal organisation shall have one vote and, upon a poll, every member present in person, by proxy (or proxies) or by a representative shall have one vote for every share held by such shareholder. On a poll, a shareholder entitled to more than one vote does not need to use all his votes or cast all the votes he uses in the same way.
Article 15.4 in Aspire Global’s Articles of Association stipulates that a shareholder shall be entitled to have a resolution put before a general meeting provided that the Board of Directors has received a request therefore at least seven weeks (in case of an annual general meeting) or four weeks (in case of an extraordinary general meeting), respectively prior to the distribution of the notice convening the meeting.

A Swedish and English version of the notice shall be published on Aspire Global’s website and in an online business newspaper and an announcement that a notice to attend a general meeting of the shareholders has been issued shall be published in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri. The notice shall include the agenda of the general meeting and include information about time, place and date for the general meeting. A shareholder who wishes to be represented by proxy shall issue a written and signed power of attorney.
Shareholders who wish to attend in a general meeting must be entered as shareholders in the share register maintained by the relevant Central Securities Depositary five Swedish weekdays (including Saturdays) prior to the date of the general meeting and must notify the Company of its intention to attend no later than the day indicated in the notice convening the general meeting in accordance with article 17.3 in Aspires Global’s Articles of Association.
