Comments from the CEO
The third quarter was marked by some momentous events in the company’s history. Terranet took an important step in its development with its image analysis sensor VoxelFlow, a technological advance that offers an increase in performance from 200 to 200,000 voxels per second. VoxelFlow will be presented at the upcoming Daimler-Mercedes Benz Startup Autobahn Expo in 2021.
Despite uncertainties regarding the long-term impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Terranet was able to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Daimler in early October. This MoU reaffirms the collaboration that has already been initiated and addresses future plans and ambitions to collaborate with Daimler in the product development and market launch phases once the first prototype has been tested and verified.
Due to the success of the new share issue the company carried out during Q2, the company was able to significantly strengthen its ownership base by bringing in new long-term owners who have expressed their confidence in Terranet. As a result of this ownership change and a clear path forward for the company, there has also been a restructuring of the board, with Göran Janson stepping in as the new chairman of the board at an EGM that was convened in early September.
Another important milestone in the company’s path forward is the recently issued warrant series, which in October raised a total of approximately MSEK 34 for the company. The capital injection, which will be used to finance investments directed towards the expansion of the company’s operations, also marks a turning point for the company since the restart at the end of 2018.
In closing, I am very happy to announce that Johan Wångblad will join the company as our new CFO on December 1. Johan has vast experience from Volvo Cars, most recently as Head of Operations of Volvo Cars Technology Fund, and will be able to contribute to Terranet’s continued development with his solid knowledge of the automotive industry.

Significant events during the period
TerraNet announced on 1 July that, in accordance with established guarantee agreements and what has previously been communicated by the company, it will carry out a directed new issue of B shares to the guarantors in the preferential rights issue who have chosen to receive guarantee compensation as newly issued B shares in the company. The subscription price in the commitment fee issue is SEK 0.40 per B share, which corresponds to the subscription price per B-share in the preferential rights issue.
On 31 July, TerraNet called an Extraordinary General Meeting at the request of shareholders who represented approximately 19 percent of the total number of shares and votes in the company. Proposers moved to nominate Göran Janson as a new board member and chair of the board and that Anders Rantén and Claes Lachmann resign as board members. Proposers also moved that the EGM establish a resolution on the adoption of principles for a nomination committee.
The EGM, which was convened on 4 September, moved to elect Göran Janson and Christian Rasmusson as new board members. The EGM also elected Göran Janson as the new chairman of the board. Anders Rantén and Claes Lachmann resigned as board members. The EGM also issued a resolution to adopt the principles for the appointment of an election panel in accordance with the proposal in the meeting notice.

The outcome of the exercise of warrants of series TO1 B was presented on 28 October.
