13                                         ELECTION OF AUDITOR

14                                         RESOLUTION ON THE REMUNERATION OF THE AUTHOR

15                                         REDUCING THE QUANTITY OF COMPANY'S SHARES BY WAY OF ISSUING NEW COMPANY SHARES AND BY REDEMPTION OF COMPANY'S OWN SHARES

The Board of Directors of Company proposes to the Annual General Meeting that the Annual General Meeting resolve on the reduction of the quantity of Company’s shares without reducing share capital by way of issuing new shares and by redemption of Company’s own shares, in such way that each current one hundred shares of the Company correspond to one share of the Company after the completion of the arrangements related to the reduction of the quantity of Company’s shares. Prior to the reduction of the quantity of Company’s shares, the total number of shares in the company is 663 639 370.

The purpose of the reduction of the quantity of Company’s shares is to increase the value of a single share and thus to improve the trade conditions of the shares and the reliability of the price formation of the shares. Thus, the Board of Directors considers that there is a particularly weighty financial reason for the Company to reduce the quantity of Company’s shares. This arrangement shall not affect the equity of the Company.

With respect to shareholders registered on the Transaction Day (as defined below) in the shareholders’ register of Nexstim maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd, the reduction of the quantity of shares shall be carried out as follows:

It is proposed that the reduction of the quantity of Company’s shares be carried out so that the Company on 14 May 2021 (the “Transaction Day”) issue new Company shares to each such shareholder of the Company without consideration so that the number of all shares per book-entry accounts owned by the shareholders of the Company are divisible by the number 100. The maximum quantity of the Company’s own shares transferred by the Company shall be 100-1 shares multiplied by the number of such book-entry accounts on the Transaction Day, on which the Company’s shares are held, and which are owned by the shareholders of the Company. Based on the Board of Director’s estimate on the number of Company’s shareholders of Nexstim on the date of this proposal, it is proposed that the maximum amount of new shares issued by the Company in the share issue to such shareholders be 1,000,000 () new shares of the Company (calculated maximum number of shares in case each of the 10 000 shareholders will require full increase). The Board of Directors of the Company is entitled to resolve on all other matters related to the issuance of shares without consideration

On the Transaction Day, at the same time with the aforementioned issue of the Company’s new shares, the Company shall redeem without consideration a number of shares from each such shareholder of the Company. The number of shares to be redeemed by the Company will be determined according to the redemption ratio of 100/1 based on the ownership of such shareholders on the Transaction Day. In other words, for every 100 shares of the Company, 100-1 Company shares shall be redeemed. The Board of Directors of the Company shall be entitled to resolve on all other matters related to the redemption of shares.

The Company’s shares, which are redeemed in connection with the reduction of the quantity of Company’s shares, shall be annulled immediately following the redemption by a resolution of the Board of Directors of the Company. The reduction of the quantity of the Company’s shares shall be carried out in the book-entry system at the end of trading day on Nasdaq Helsinki on 14 May 2021, i.e., on the Transaction Day (i.e., on the record day). The annulment of the shares and the Company’s new total number of shares are entered in the trade register by 17 May 2021. Trading with the Company’s new total number of shares on Nasdaq Helsinki with new ISIN code will begin approximately on 17 May 2021, on which date the reduced number of shares will also appear on each book entry account of the shareholders registered in the shareholders’ register of Nexstim maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd.

With respect to shareholders with shares registered in a) Euroclear Sweden AB’s Securities System (whether registered in the name of or a nominee or directly of the shareholder) and b) holders of nominee registered shares registered in Euroclear Finland Ltd’s Book-entry System, the reduction of the quantity of shares shall be carried out as follows:

For the purposes of execution of the reduction of the number of shares, the Board of Directors also proposes that the Annual General Meeting of shareholders pass the resolution on the issuance of a maximum of 350,000 new shares to the Company itself without payment. The directed share issue is connected to the completion of the reduction of the number of shares and justified by the reasons set forth above in this section. For the sake of clarity, the number of shares to be issued to the Company itself is calculated based on the number of shares prior to the reduction in the Company, and not the number of the reduced shares.

The shares issued to the Company itself are to be re-issued, i.e., transferred from the Company without consideration to such shareholders (the “Receiving Shareholders”) holding on the Record Day (as defined below) a) shares registered in Euroclear Sweden AB’s Securities System, whether registered in the name of or a nominee or directly of the Shareholder, or b) nominee-registered shares registered in Euroclear Finland Ltd’s Book-entry System, the amount of which (a or b) is not divisible by 100, to the extent required by their shareholding in the Company being divisible by the number 100. The Board of Directors is hereby authorised to pass a resolution on transfer of such shares from the Company to the Receiving Shareholders as well as to decide on the terms related to such share issue(s)/transfers.

In connection with the redemption of the Company’s shares held by shareholders registered in the shareholders’ register of Nexstim maintained by Euroclear Finland Ltd, the Company will also redeem without consideration a number of shares from each Receiving Shareholder. The number of shares to be redeemed by the Company will be determined according to the redemption ratio of 100/1 based on ownership of the Company’s shares by the Receiving Shareholders on the Transaction Day (according to share and shareholder information available with Euroclear Finland Oy) to execute the reduction of the number of shares, and such number(s) of reduced shares (per each Receiving Shareholder) are then adjusted, if needed, by the abovementioned transfer of shares to the Receiving Shareholders based on their actual ownership of the Company’s shares on the Record Day (as defined below). The Board of Directors of the Company shall be entitled to resolve on all other matters related to the redemptions of shares.

The Company’s shares, which are redeemed in connection with the reduction of the quantity of the Company’s shares, shall be annulled immediately following the redemption by a resolution of the Board of Directors of the Company.

The shares issued to the Company itself will be registered in the trade register by 17th of May 2021. Trading with the Company’s new total number of shares on Nasdaq Stockholm (and Nasdaq Helsinki) with new ISIN code will begin approximately on 17th of May 2021 (“Trading Day”). The record day (the “Record Day”) for the reduction of the quantity of Company’s shares shall be a) with respect to shares registered in Euroclear Sweden AB’s Securities System (whether registered in the name of or a nominee or directly of the shareholder) 18th of May 2021 and b) with respect to nominee-registered shares registered in Euroclear Finland Ltd’s Book-entry System 14th of May 2021. The transfers of shares from the Company to the Receiving Shareholders required for the final adjustments of their number of shares (after reduction) are expected to take place and be recorded in book-entry accounts at the latest on 17th May 2021 in Sweden and 19th May 2021 in Finland.

Any own shares in the possession of the Company after transactions with the Receiving Shareholders will be annulled. The arrangement, if it is realised, will not require the shareholders to take any action. No part of the arrangement shall be carried out unless all the other parts of the arrangement are carried out as well.

If necessary, the trading with the Company’s share on Nasdaq Helsinki or Nasdaq Stockholm shall be temporarily interrupted in order to perform the necessary technical measures in the trading facility after the Transaction Day.

If the proposal of the Board of Directors is accepted as set forth above, it was noted that the authorised maximum amount of shares that may be issued under all outstanding authorisations (whether as new or existing shares or option rights or other rights to shares) shall also be divisible in accordance with the above-mentioned principle.

The new shares can also be issued to the Company itself free of charge.

Under the authorisation, a maximum of 5 500 000 shares may be issued, which corresponds to approximately 0,82% percent of all the shares in the Company after the share issue, provided that new shares are issued, considering all registered shares of the Company. Subject to approval of proposals in this section 15 the authorization shall be changed correspondingly

The shares, option rights and/or other special rights entitling to shares can be issued in one or more tranches.

The Board of Directors is authorised to resolve on all terms for the share issues and the terms for the granting of the option rights and other special rights entitling to shares.
