Decisions adopted in the organizing meeting of CapMan Plc Board of Directors

Heikki Westerlund was elected Chairman and Teuvo Salminen Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors in the Board of Directors' organizing meeting that took place today after the Annual General Meeting.

The Board of Directors established Audit, Nomination and Remunerations Committees from among its members as follows:

Audit Committee

  • Teuvo Salminen (Chairman)
  • Conny Karlsson

Remuneration Committee

  • Nora Kerppola (Chairman)
  • Koen Dejonckheere
  • Claes de Neergaard

Nomination Committee

  • Heikki Westerlund (Chairman)
  • Koen Dejonckheere
  • Teuvo Salminen

Independence of the members of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors assessed the independence of its members and concluded that Nora Kerppola and Claes de Neergaard are independent of both the company and its significant shareholders. Koen Dejonckheere is independent of the company, but non-independent of its significant shareholders. Conny Karlsson and Teuvo Salminen, who act as CapMan advisors, are non-independent of the Company but independent of its significant shareholders. Heikki Westerlund is non-independent of both the Company and its significant shareholders.

CapMan deviates from the recommendation 26 of the Finnish Corporate Governance Code, which concerns the independence of the members of the audit committee of the company and of the significant shareholders. In line with recommendation 25, the Board of Directors has elected those members to the Audit Committee that have the best qualifications to perform the responsibilities of the Audit Committee. The Board of Directors has decided, in line with recommendation 22, that due to the low number of board members the Audit Committee consists of two members only.
