Immunovia AB (Publ) nomination committee appointed for AGM 2019
According to the instruction that was adopted at the Immunovia AB (Publ) AGM May 3 2018, the nomination committee should consist of four members.
LUND, Sweden ― The Nomination Committee, which is to be appointed for the period until a new Nomination Committee has been appointed, will have four members, of which three will be appointed by the three largest shareholders of the company in terms of votes, and the fourth will be the Chairman of the Board. In cases where the Chairman of the Board is one of the three largest shareholders, in his/her capacity as shareholder, the Chairman will put his/her place at the disposal of the Committee, and the next-largest shareholder will be offered the entitlement to appoint a member of the Nomination Committee. As soon as reasonably possible after the end of the third quarter, the Chairman of the Board should contact the three largest shareholders in terms of votes recorded in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB and request that within a reasonable time in the circumstances, although not more than 30 days, they state the name of the individual such shareholder wishes to appoint as a member of the Nomination Committee. If one of the three largest shareholders does not wish to exercise its entitlement to appoint a member of the Nomination Committee, the next shareholder in turn will be offered the entitlement to appoint a member of the Nomination Committee. In the case where several shareholders decline their entitlement to appoint members of the Nomination Committee, the Chairman of the Board should not need to contact more than eight shareholders, unless this is necessary to compose a Nomination Committee of at least three members.
Unless otherwise agreed between the members, that member appointed by the largest shareholder in terms of votes will be appointed Chairman of the Nomination Committee. The Chairman of the Board or other Director may never serve as Chairman of the Nomination Committee.
Based on the above, the nomination committee have for the 2019 AGM been determined to consist of the following persons whom together represent approximately 25 percent of the number of shares and votes in the Company per September 30 2018:
- Sara Ek, representing Sara Ek, Chairman of the Nomination Committee
- Carl Borrebaeck representing Carl Borrebaeck, Chairman of the Board
- Mikael Löfman representing Mikael Löfman; and
- Astrid Samuelsson, representing Handelsbanken
The suggestion from the nomination committee will be presented in the notice to the AGM 2019 as well as on the Company website, www.immunovia.com.
Shareholders who wish to leave suggestions to the nomination committee are welcome to contact the nomination committee at the Company address. In order for the nomination committee to take a suggestion into account, the suggestion must have been received in a timely manner before the AGM, January 31 2019 at the latest.
