Kitron has also resolved to exercise a right under the share incentive program to implement trading restrictions on the shares issued under the abovementioned share capital increase. All shares issued will be subject to trading restrictions with a duration of two years; however, so that one eighth of the total number of new shares will vest and become tradable each quarter.
