PROPOSAL FOR ADOPTION BY THE NOMINATION COMMITTEE
The Company's nomination committee consists of Stefan Winström (representing Pegroco Holding AB and also chairman of the nomination committee), Lennart Persson (representing himself), Stig-Arne Blom (representing Conatum AB and himself) and Chairman Alf Blomqvist. The Nomination Committee has presented the following proposals for adoption.
Item 1. Election of Chairman at the general meeting
The nomination committee proposes Alf Blomqvist for election as Chairman of the general meeting.
Item 8. Determination of fees for members of the board of directors
The nomination committee proposes that the yearly fee for the chairman of the board, which was adopted at the General Meeting 2019 to be SEK 250,000, is adjusted to a yearly fee of SEK 1,150,000. The adjustment of the fee to the chairman of the board is suggested to be effective retroactively from July 1, 2019, which means that the fee for the period from the General Meeting 2019 until the General Meeting 2020 will be SEK 1,025,000. For the other members of the board the fees that were adopted in the General Meeting of 2019 are to be unchanged. All fees are excluding legal social fees.
The reason that this proposal is conducted in an Extraordinary General Meeting is that the decision concerns the accounts of 2019 and thus is to be included in the Annual Report of the company for 2019. All board fees are specified in the Annual Report.
Item 9. Determination of the principles of other fees for members of the board of directors
In case a, by the General Meeting appointed, member of the board is conducting work on behalf of the company aside of the assignment of being a board member, an agreement is to be made at market conditions and a fee can be determinated by a decision by the board. The board is to conduct a review of this kind of agreements on a yearly basis. All board fees are specified in the Annual Report.
Reasoning by the nomination committee regarding the proposal of board fees
The nomination committee commenced its work during the autumn by interviewing all members of the board including the CEO.
The company is currently in a development phase, which means many and complicated negotiations with different types of counter parties. As the time aspect is of essence, the management is from time to time in need of additional competence. In many issues, such as strategy, financing and industrial project management these competences and resources are available in the board of the company. The optimal solution for the company has been to utilize the capacity of the board.
It is assessment of the nomination committee: that the board of directors due to the reasons mentioned above has spent considerably more time on operational work in the company than what is normal for a board assignment in accompany of this size; that the need of the company of added resources will remain at least until the time of the next coming General Meeting; and that this extra work conducted by the board is beneficial to the company and the shareholders. The extraordinary contribution is especially applicable to the chairman of the board but from time to time also for other members of the board.
The proposal of principles of the board fees is to be regarded with the above as background.
The nomination committee is continuing its preparation assignment up to the coming General Meeting.
NUMBER OF SHARES AND VOTES IN THE COMPANY
The total number of shares and votes in the Company at the time of this notice to attend is 464,660,892. There is only one type of share and the Company holds none of its own shares.
SHAREHOLDER'S RIGHT TO REQUEST INFORMATION
Should any shareholder so request, the board of directors and the managing director must, under Chapter 7 § 32 of the Swedish Companies Act, provide information at the meeting about conditions that may affect the assessment of items on the agenda given that this will not cause material harm to the Company. This duty of disclosure also includes consolidated financial statements, the Company's relationship to other group companies and conditions concerning subsidiaries referred to in the previous sentence.
The board of directors’ proposal for resolutions, annual report, auditor’s report and other relevant documents for the general meeting will be available at the company’s office and at the Company’s webpage, www.envirosystems.se.se no later than three weeks before the general meeting and will be sent free of charge to shareholders who so request and provide their mailing addresses. All above mentioned documents will also be available at the general meeting.
