Change in the Nomination Committee of Evolution Gaming Group AB (publ)

In accordance with the resolution of the Annual General Meeting, the Nomination Committee has appointed a new member following a change in the shareholder structure. When the Nomination Committee was originally appointed, JOVB Investment AB and FROS Ventures AB (controlled by Jens von Bahr and Fredrik Österberg) were the second and third largest shareholder in Evolution Gaming. Since then, JOVB Investment AB and FROS Ventures AB have transferred all shares in Evolution Gaming to Österbahr Ventures AB, which is jointly controlled by Jens von Bahr and Fredrik Österberg.

According to the resolution of the Annual General Meeting, the three largest shareholders in the company shall be given the opportunity to elect one representative each to form the Nomination Committee. If any of these shareholders chooses to waive their right to elect a representative, their right is transferred to the shareholder who, after these shareholders, has the largest share ownership. In addition, a member of the Board of Directors who is independent in relation to the company’s management shall be a member of the Nomination Committee.

Johan Menckel (who represented JOVB Investment AB) has in accordance with the resolution of the Annual General Meeting made his place available, and Handelsbanken Fonder has appointed Christian Brunlid as new member of the Nomination Committee. Österbahr Ventures AB has appointed Peter Ihrfelt as its representative in the Nomination Committee.

Hence, the Nomination Committee ahead of the 2018 AGM consists of the following members:

  • Ian Livingstone (appointed by Richard Livingstone)
  • Peter Ihrfelt (appointed by Österbahr Ventures AB)
  • Christian Brunlid (appointed by Handelsbanken Fonder)
  • Joel Citron (board member)
