    The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for the management and the organization of the Company. The board of directors shall consist of no fewer than five and no more than nine directors elected by a General Meeting of shareholders. Swedish law allow for the relevant trade unions to appoint two Directors and two Deputy Directors.

    The Directors are appointed at the Annual General Meeting for a period of one year, i.e. up and until the next Annual General Meeting. Any vacancy in the Board of Directors may only be replaced through a resolution passed by the shareholders. The trade unions representing the employees at the Company may decide the term of the seat for their Board of Director representatives. The term for the employee representatives may, however, not exceed four years, but each such term may be prolonged without any limitation.

    The Annual General Meeting held on June 4, 2020 resolved to re-elect Thomas Eklund, Karolina Lawitz, Peter Ehrenheim, Mark Bradley, Torben Jörgensen, Åsa Hedin as Directors of the Board of Directors. Employee representatives are Love Amcoff, Annika Gärdlund (Board Member) and Dan Ohlsson (deputy). The Annual General Meeting appointed Torben Jörgensen as Chairman of the Board of Directors.

    The Annual General Meeting 2020 resolved that the aggregate fee to the Board of Directors should be SEK 1 625 000, whereof SEK 500 000 shall be allocated to the Chairman of the Board of Directors and each other Director, that is not employed by the Company, shall be allocated SEK 225 000. In addition hereto, it was resolved that a fee of no more than SEK 145 000 should be reserved for the members of the Audit Committee, whereof SEK 75 000 should be allocated to the Chairman of the Audit Committee and SEK 35 000 each to the other two members of the Audit Committee.

    The work of the Board of Directors is governed by Rules of Procedure for the Board of Directors. These rules are reviewed at least once per year and then re-adopted by the Board of Directors. The Rules of Procedure for the Board of Directors is principally made up of guidelines for how the Board of Director shall carry out their duties, instructions for how to divide the responsibilities between the Board of Directors and the CEO and instructions for the Company’s financial reporting.
