The Nomination Committee shall be composed of one representative nominated by each of the three largest shareholders and the Chairman of the Board. The Chairman of the Board shall contact the largest shareholders in terms of voting rights, as registered in the shareholders’ register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB as of the last banking day in August every year or other reliable information on shareholdings provided to the company at this time. A shareholder who is not owner registered in the shareholders’ register maintained by Eurcoclear Sweden and who wishes to exercise its right shall report this to the Chairman of the Board and be able to verify its shareholding. If one of the three largest shareholders in terms of voting rights waives its right to appoint a member to the Nomination Committee, the largest shareholder in turn shall be given the opportunity to appoint a member until the Nomination Committee consists of three members in addition to the Chairman of the Board. When appointing the Nomination Committee, the rules on independence in the Code must be taken into account. The composition of the Nomination Committee shall be publicly announced as soon as the Nomination Committee has been appointed, which shall be no later than six months before the Annual General Meeting. The Chairman of the Board shall convene the Nomination Committee as soon as possible after it has been appointed.
If a shareholder who has appointed a member of the Nomination Committee ceases to be a shareholder, or no longer is among the largest shareholders in terms of voting rights, earlier than two months before the Nomination Committee’s assignment is completed, the member appointed by such shareholder shall, if the Nomination Committee so decides, be replaced by a new member appointed by the shareholder who at the time is the largest shareholder in terms of voting rights and who is not already represented in the Nomination Committee. Should any of the members of the Nomination Committee resign for another reason or cease to represent the shareholder who has appointed the member before the Nomination Committee’s assignment is completed, such member shall be replaced by a new representative of the shareholder if requested by such shareholder.
The term of office for the Nomination Committee runs until a new Nomination Committee has been appointed. The Chairman of the Nomination Committee shall, if not otherwise agreed by the members, be the member who is appointed by the largest shareholder in terms of voting rights. No fees are to be paid to the members of the Nomination Committee. The Nomination Committee may, if appropriate, co-opt members to the Nomination Committee; a co-opted member is however not entitled to vote in the Nomination Committee.
The Nomination Committee’s assignment is to prepare proposals regarding the number of Board members to be elected by the general meeting, fees for the members of the Board, members of the Board, Chairman of the Board, Chairman at general meetings, company Auditor, Auditor’s fee, instructions for the Nomination Committee and other matters that according to the Code are to be handled by the Nomination Committee. This instruction shall apply until further notice.
The Nomination Committee for the 2021 Annual General Meeting consisted of: Hans-Göran Stennert (in his capacity as Chairman of the Board of Eolus Vind AB), Ingvar Svantesson, Hans Gydell and Hans Johansson.
