The Nomination Committee of Investor AB modifies its proposal regarding Board of Directors
Sara Mazur is proposed as new Board Member instead of Sara Öhrvall who declines re-election
The Nomination Committee of Investor AB presented its proposals to the Annual General Meeting on March 28, 2018. The Annual General Meeting will be held on May 8, 2018. The proposals and motivated opinion can be found on the Company’s website, www.investorab.com.
Board Member Sara Öhrvall has notified that due to an upcoming assignment she is no longer available for re-election at Investor’s Annual General Meeting 2018. As a result thereof, the Nomination Committee has decided to modify its proposal by proposing Sara Mazur to be elected as new Member of the Board of Directors of Investor.
Sara Mazur is a Swedish citizen born 1966. Sara Mazur is Vice Chairman of Wallenberg Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous System and Software Program (WASP), Board Member of Chalmers AB, Combient AB, Nobel Media AB, RISE AB, Saab AB, SICS North Swedish ICT AB, Wallenberg Center for Quantum Technology (WACQT) and member of The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA), department XI - Education and Research. Sara Mazur has been Vice President and Head of Ericsson Research, a position which she left recently, and has held different management positions within the Ericsson group as from 1998. Sara Mazur holds a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from The Royal Institute of Technology.
Sara Mazur is considered as independent in relation to Investor’s major shareholders, but dependent in relation to Investor and Investor’s executive management due to the recent employment by Ericsson. The Nomination Committee is of the opinion that Sara Mazur will add valuable expertise and experience to the Board of Directors within inter alia technology, research and development and is very well suited as Member of the Board of Directors of Investor.
The Nomination Committee's modified proposal results in the following adjustment in relation to the Nomination Committee’s already submitted proposal regarding the Annual General Meeting’s agenda item 14, Election of Members and Deputy Members of the Board of Directors.
Proposal from the Nomination Committee:
A. Josef Ackermann, re-election
B. Gunnar Brock, re-election

I. Jacob Wallenberg, re-election
J. Marcus Wallenberg, re-election

The Nomination Committee's modified proposal results in no additional adjustments in relation to the Nomination Committee’s already submitted proposals regarding the number of Members of the Board of Directors or the compensation to the Board of Directors.
