Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for the management and the organization of the Company. The members of the Board of Directors are elected at the Annual General Meeting and the Board of Directors shall be comprised pf less than six Directors. 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.
