Item 8 Determination of the number of Board Members and any deputies
The Nomination Committee proposes a Board comprising six members elected by the AGM and no deputies.
Item 9 Determination of the Board's remuneration and the auditors' fees
The Nomination Committee proposes that an unchanged fee of SEK 340,000 be paid to the Chairman and that an unchanged fee of SEK 160,000 be paid to each of the other Board members who are not employed by the company. Provisions totalling SEK 160,000 are also made available for committee work. It is proposed that the remuneration to the auditors be settled against verified invoices.
Item 10 Election of the Chairman of the Board and Board Members
The Nomination Committee proposes the election of Ivar Verner as Chairman of the Board. The Nomination Committee also proposes the re-election of Peter Rejler, Jan Samuelsson, Thord Wilkne, Anders Jonsson and Helena Nordman-Knutson. Åsa Söderström Jerring and Lauri Valkonen have declined re-election.
Item 11 Proposal for resolution on the establishment of a Nomination Committee
The Nomination Committee proposes that the AGM resolves 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 the shareholders asked declines 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 President of the company 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 and 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.
Item 12 Proposal to authorise the Board to make decisions about new shares
It is proposed that the AGM resolves to authorise the Board to make decisions about new shares up to a maximum of 600,000 class B shares without preferential rights for existing shareholders. The authorisation shall apply in connection with acquisitions on one or more occasions up until the next AGM and it shall be possible to issue the shares against offsetting or against capital contributed in kind.
In the event of full utilisation, this authorisation is equivalent to a dilution of 4.6 per cent of the capital and 2.5 per cent of the votes.
In order for the resolution to be approved, at least two thirds of the votes and shares present must approve the proposal.
Item 13 Guidelines for the remuneration of executives
The Board proposes the following guidelines for the remuneration of the Managing Director and other senior executives. "Other senior executives" refers to members of the Group management.The main principle for these guidelines is that senior executives at Rejlers should be offered remuneration at market rates to enable the company to attract, develop and retain key personnel. In general, Rejlers does not offer any benefits greater than those constituting local practice.
The remuneration of the President and other senior executives shall be at the market rate and consist of a basic salary, variable remuneration, pensions and, in certain cases, other benefits. The variable remuneration is limited to no more than 60 per cent of the basic salary. The variable remuneration is primarily based on the Group's profit and the individually attained result in relation to the quantitative and qualitative goals set.
The pension is premium-based and no pension commitments exist over and above the pension premiums paid. The general pension plan applies for other senior executives, either via the ITP plan or through individual occupational pension insurance within the framework of ITP.
A mutual notice period of twelve months will apply between the company and the President. A notice period of six to twelve months applies between the company and other senior executives.
The Board proposes that the Board be given the right to deviate from the above proposed guidelines should there be special cause to do so in individual cases.
Shareholders representing 64,5 per cent of the votes and 36,4 per cent of the shares in the company support the Nomination Committee’s proposal in accordance with items 1 and 8–11, as well as the Board’s proposal in accordance with items 12–13.
The number of shares in the company is 12,321,721 and the number of votes in the company is 23,582,971, divided into 1,251,250 Class A shares and 11,070,471 Class B shares. The company does not hold any of its own shares.
The annual report and resolution documents will be available on the company’s website: www.rejlers.com. Copies will be sent by mail to shareholders who request such a copy and provide a name and mailing address in accordance with the above.
