The nomination committee is the body of the shareholders’ meeting tasked with the preparation of decisions to be made by the meeting concerning appointment matters, with the aim of establishing a sound basis for consideration of such matters.
Following a proposal by the main shareholders Anna Benjamin and Pomona-gruppen AB, which together represented 87 per cent of votes and 56 per cent of the capital in XANO, a nomination committee was appointed by the 2020 AGM composed of Ulf Hedlundh as chairman, along with Stig-Olof Simonsson and Anna Benjamin.
The task of the committee prior to the 2021 AGM is to nominate a Chairman of the Board and other Board members, auditor, a chairman for the AGM, and to propose fees for the Board and auditor. In its proposal to the Board, the nomination committee will propose the most qualified Board members for the company, based on an overall assessment of relevant expertise and experience, and must pay particular attention to the demand for diversity and breadth in the Board, as well as endeavour to achieve an even gender distribution. In its proposal, the nomination committee has in particular complied with and taken into account point 4.1 of the Swedish Corporate Governance Code.
Shareholders wishing to nominate candidates for XANO’s Board of Directors may contact Ulf Hedlundh, Chair of the Nomination Committee, on tel. +46 8-440 37 70 or e-mail email@example.com. In order for received proposals to be able to be handled properly, these should be received by the Nomination Committee no later than 31 January 2021.
