Componenta's Nomination Board consisting of shareholders or their representatives.

NOMINATION BOARD

Componenta has a Shareholders’ Nomination Board. The Nomination Board – composed of shareholders or the shareholders’ representatives – is tasked with preparing and making proposals on Board members and the remuneration of Board members to the next Annual General Meeting.

The Nomination Board is convened annually by requesting the three biggest shareholders as per 31 August to nominate one member to the Nomination Board. In addition, the Chairman of the Board of Directors serves as the Nomination Board’s expert member.

The members of the Nomination Board elect the Board’s Chairman from among themselves. The first meeting of the Nomination Board is convened by the Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors, after which the meetings are convened by the Chairman of the Nomination Board. The Board serves as the comittee composed of shareholders’ representatives as referred to in the Finnish Corporate Governance Code; this is not considered a departure from the Corporate Governance Code.

The Nomination Board gives its proposal to the General Meeting no later by the end of January preceding the Annual General Meeting. The Nomination Board ensures that the proposal is presented at the General Meeting.
