Proposed agenda

1. Election of chair for the Meeting
2. Preparation and approval of the voting list
3. Approval of the agenda
4. Election of one person, the adjuster, to approve the minutes together with the Chair
5. Determination whether the Meeting has been properly convened
6. Resolution on dividend and record date
7. Resolution on amendment of the Articles of Association
8. Conclusion of the Meeting

Item 1        Election of chairman for the Meeting

The Board of Directors (the "Board") proposes that Hans Stråberg shall be elected to act as chairman at the Meeting or, if he is unable to attend, such person as the Board may appoint in his stead.

Item 2        Preparation and approval of the voting list

The voting list proposed for approval is the voting list prepared by Euroclear Sweden AB on behalf of the Company, based on the Meeting share register and received mail votes, as verified and approved by the person elected as the adjuster.

Item 4             Election of one adjuster

The Board proposes that Jörgen Ekelöw, SVP, General Counsel, Epiroc AB shall be appointed as adjuster to verify the minutes of the Meeting or, if he is unable to, such persons as the Board may appoint in his stead. The person appointed as adjuster shall, in addition to signing the minutes of the Meeting along with the chair, also verify the voting list and that incoming mail votes are correctly presented in the minutes of Meeting.

Item 6             Resolution on dividend

As a consequence of the uncertainty caused by Covid-19, it was decided at Atlas Copco's AGM on April 23, 2020, on a dividend of SEK 3.50 per share. The Board had on March 26 informed that the decision on the originally proposed second dividend, of SEK 3.50 per share, would be decided later at an extraordinary general meeting when the consequences of Covid-19 could be better assessed. The Board makes the assessment that the market situation has stabilized and that the Company meets the prerequisites to proceed with the second dividend. Hence the Board has decided to propose a dividend of SEK 3.50 per share, equivalent to a total of SEK 4,256 million. The Board proposes that the record date for the dividend shall be Monday November 30, 2020. If the Meeting resolves in accordance with the proposal, it is estimated that the dividend will be distributed by Euroclear Sweden AB on Thursday December 3, 2020. According to the last approved balance sheet as at December 31, 2019, the Company's non-restricted equity amounts to SEK 144,215 million. After the dividend approved by the AGM the disposable earnings pursuant to Ch. 17 § 3 of the Swedish Companies Act amounts to SEK 139,965 million.

Item 7             Resolution on amendment of the Articles of Association

The Board proposes that the Company's Articles of Association be updated editorially, among other things to reflect the changes in laws that have been introduced since the current Articles of Association were adopted. Furthermore, the Board proposes that the Articles of Association introduce an opportunity for the Board to decide before a General Meeting to collect proxies and to enable Shareholders to vote by mail. All amendments proposed by the Board in the Articles of Association are clearly stated in the updated Articles of Association, which are attached to the notice, where the proposed amendments are marked. It is proposed that the Chief Executive Officer ("CEO"), or such person as the CEO may designate, be authorized to make such minor adjustments to the resolution as may prove necessary in connection with the registration of the resolution.

Special Majority Requirement

The resolution of the Meeting under item 7 on the agenda will be valid only if it is supported by Shareholders holding at least two thirds of the votes cast as well as the number of shares represented at the Meeting.

Shares and Votes

The Company has issued in total 1,229,613,104 shares of which 839,394,096 are series A shares and 390,219,008 are series B shares.
