Provisions on the establishment of a nomination committee are found in the Code. The nomination committee’s main task is to present appropriate candidates for the roles as chairman of the board, board members and auditor, as well as remuneration to these.
At the extraordinary general meeting held on 2 September 2020, it was resolved to adopt an instruction and rules of procedure for the nomination committee. The nomination committee shall consist of the chairman of the Board of Directors and three board members appointed by the three largest shareholders as of the last September.
If any of the three largest shareholders choose to waive their right to appoint a member to the nomination committee, or if a member refrains or resigns from the nomination committee before the assignment is completed, the chairman of the Board of Directors shall offer the next shareholder (i.e. the fourth largest shareholder) to appoint a member of the nomination committee, and so on. The nomination committee appoints a chairman from among its members. The chairman of the Board of Directors or any other of the Company’s board members shall not be the chairman of the nomination committee.
The members of the nomination committee shall be announced no later than six months before the annual general meeting. If the shareholder structure changes significantly no later than seven weeks before the annual general meeting, a new member shall be appointed. When such a member has been appointed, this member shall replace the former member of the nomination committee who no longer represents one of the three largest shareholders. The members of the nomination committee shall not receive remuneration from the Company, unless the general meeting decides otherwise.
After consultation with the company’s, as of 30 September 2020, largest shareholders in terms of votes and taking into account the changes in the ownership structure that have taken place in connection with the company's listing on 7 December 2020, the Nomination Committee consists of the following members:
- Anders Holmgren (Setterwalls Law Firm), representing Bergsala Holding
- Pia Gisgård, representing Swedbank Robur
- Eva Sigurgeirsdóttir, representing Brjann Sigurgeirsson Holding
- Mats Lönnqvist, Chairman of the Board of Directors
Anders Holmgren has been appointed Chairman of the Nomination Committee.
