The shareholders of Castellum AB (publ), Reg. No. 556475-5550, are hereby summoned to the Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on Monday, December 21, 2020.
In the light of the ongoing corona pandemic and in order to minimize any risk of spreading of the corona virus, the Board of Directors has decided that the Extraordinary General Meeting is to be held only through advance voting (postal voting) in accordance with temporary legislation. This means that the Extraordinary General Meeting will be conducted without the physical presence of shareholders, representatives or external parties and that shareholders will only be able to exercise their voting rights by postal voting in advance of the Extraordinary General Meeting in the manner described below.
Shareholders who wish to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting by postal voting must be registered as shareholders in the share register kept by Euroclear Sweden AB by Friday, December 11, 2020 and must also announce their intention to attend the Extraordinary General meeting no later than Friday, December 18, 2020, by having submitted an advance voting form in accordance with the instructions in the section "Advance voting" below, so that the advance vote is received by Euroclear Sweden AB no later than that day. Please note that notification to the Extraordinary General Meeting can only be made by postal voting.
In order to be entitled to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting, shareholders who have registered their shares in the name of a nominee must, in addition to announcing their intention to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting by submitting an advance vote, request that their shares be registered in their own name so the shareholder is entered into the register of shareholders by Friday, December 11, 2020. This registration may be temporary (so-called voting right registration) and is requested with the nominee in accordance with the nominee's procedures and in advance as determined by the nominee. Voting right registrations completed no later than the second business day following Friday, December 11, 2020, are considered when preparing the shareholder register.
The shareholders may exercise their voting rights at the Extraordinary General Meeting only by voting in advance, so called postal voting in accordance with Section 22 of the Act (2020:198) on temporary exceptions to facilitate the execution of general meetings in companies and other associations.
A special form shall be used for advance voting. The form is available on Castellum's website, www.castellum.se. The advance voting form is considered as the notification of participation at the Extraordinary General Meeting.
The completed and signed voting form must be received by Euroclear Sweden AB no later than Friday, December 18, 2020. The completed and signed form shall be sent to Castellum AB (publ), "Extraordinary General Meeting", c/o Euroclear Sweden AB, Box 191, 101 23 Stockholm, Sweden.

Shareholders who are natural persons can also submit their advance votes electronically by verifying with BankID via Euroclear Sweden AB's website https://anmalan.vpc.se/EuroclearProxy/. Such electronic votes must be submitted no later than Friday, December 18, 2020.
The shareholder may not provide special instructions or conditions in the voting form. If so, the vote (in its entirety) is invalid. Further instructions and conditions are included in the form for advance voting.
