OSLO, NORWAY – 07 January 2021 - The board of directors of Zwipe AS call for an Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on 28 January 2021 at 10:00 CET.
Please find enclosed the notice of the Extraordinary General Meeting.
Following the capital increase in September and November, the nomination committee and the board of directors (the "Board") in Zwipe have assessed the need for changes to the nomination committee, so that the new nomination committee may assess the need for changes to the board of directors prior to the annual general meeting in 2021.
As part of its work on proposing new candidates for election to the nomination committee, the nomination committee, consisting of Paal Raaholt, Magnus Berner and Jörgen Lantto, has been in contact with several key persons related to Zwipe. The nomination committee has been in contact with shareholders, in particular the new major shareholder Vasastaden, as well as previous major shareholder (and now second largest shareholder) Lars Windfeldt. The nomination committee has also been in contact with the Board and the company's management, prior to presenting their proposal to the Board.
Resulting from these contacts, the nomination committee proposes that a new nomination committee is elected, consisting of Niclas Eriksson (Vasastaden), Lars Windfeldt and Jörgen Lantto.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors of Zwipe, I welcome the fact that our new major shareholder Vasastaden, a renowned Swedish institutional investor, wishes to take an active role as member of Zwipe’s nomination committee through its Chairman, Niclas Eriksson. I also welcome that Lars Windfeldt, who has been a major shareholder for Zwipe since 2011, wishes to join the nomination committee as its Chairman. The fact that our two largest shareholders wish to invest their time and energy into supporting the company, besides their capital investments, is very encouraging” said Jörgen Lantto, chairman of the Board of Zwipe.
