– We are delighted that the Nomination Committee on short notice has the possibility to propose Peter Nilsson as new Chairman of the Board in Lindab. Peter has substantial industrial experience and we are convinced that he is the right person to lead the Board’s work in Lindab, says the Chairman of the Nomination Committee Peter Rönström.
It is noted that shareholders representing appr. 47.1% of the company’s shares have declared that they support the proposal of the Nomination Committe at the Annual General Meeting on May 3. 2016.
Per Frankling has expressed his reservations against the Nomination Committee’s proposal regarding election of the Board. – We are positive to Peter Nilsson’s capability as Chairman but as we still have the opinion that it is important for the Company that the Board is represented by the largest shareholder as the shareholder has wanted, we cannot support the proposal, says Per Frankling.
Save for the above, the Nomination Committee’s proposals remain as they are provided for in the previously published Notice to attend the Annual General Meeting.
