- Opening of the Meeting and Election of Chairman of the Meeting
- Verification and approval of the voting list
- Approval of the agenda
- Election of two minute-checkers
- Determination whether the Extraordinary General Meeting has been duly convened
- Election of Bo Forsén to the Board of Directors
- Close of General Meeting
The Nomination Committee proposes Henry Klotz as Chairman of the Meeting.
Erik Selin has requested to resign from the Board. The Nomination Committee proposes Bo Forsén as new Board member. The Board members Henry Klotz, Jan Johansson, Christer Sandberg and Lennart Schönning remain on the Board.
As previously, the proposed composition of the Board of Directors will not fulfill the Swedish Corporate Governance Code’s requirement on board member independence. The deviation from the Code is due to the limited size of the company as it will be limited to one property development project in Solna after divesting most of its real estate. Hence it has been considered that the requirement for board member independence will be of less importance.
The complete proposal by the Board of Directors in relation to point 6 will be made available at Catena’s offices no later than November 30, 2012 and will be announced at Catena’s website www.catenafastigheter.se . The documents will be sent free of charge upon request.
The shareholders are informed of their right to request information at the Extraordinary General Meeting regarding conditions that may impair the assessment of a matter on the agenda and conditions that may impair the assessment of Catena’s financial position.
