The meeting resolved to appoint a Nomination Committee with the task of
preparing proposals for the election of Board Members and auditors as well as
remuneration for these prior to future AGMs.
Every year and no later than the end of the third quarter, the Chairman of the
Board must call a meeting of the three largest shareholders in the company, each
of which is then entitled to select a representative. If any of these
shareholders decline to select a representative, the Chairman shall then consult
with the next largest shareholder. However, the Chairman only needs to ask, at
most, the six largest shareholders. If, in spite of this, the Nomination
Committee does not contain at least three members, the Nomination Committee may
itself select the appropriate number of members. Board Members, the company's
Managing Director and any other member of the company management shall not be
eligible to sit on the Nomination Committee.
The Nomination Committee shall select a chairman at the constituting meeting.
The composition of the Nomination Committee must be announced as soon as
possible, though no later than six months prior to the Annual General Meeting.
If there is a significant change in the ownership, after the Nomination
Committee has been appointed and the Committee has a member appointed by a
shareholder who has reduced its holdings, this member will resign from the
Nomination Committee. The Chairman of the Nomination Committee shall thereafter
consult the shareholders in accordance with the above policy.
The meeting authorised the Board to decide on a new issue of a maximum of
1,000,000 Class B shares. In the event of full utilisation, the authorisation is
