According to the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance ("the Code"), listed companies must have a nomination committee representing the company's shareholders. The Nomination Committee is thus the AGM's body for the preparation of certain appointment decisions to be taken by the Annual General Meeting.
The Nomination Committee's main task is to propose the chairman and other members of the Board of Directors and, where applicable, the auditor. In connection with the nomination committee proposing a member of the board, the Nomination Committee shall indicate whether the member of the Nomination Committee is to be regarded as independent in relation to the company and the company management and major shareholders in the company as well.
The Nomination Committee shall furthermore propose a person to the Annual General Meeting's election of the chairman of the meeting. The Nomination Committee also prepares proposals for remuneration to the Board members and the auditor.
In accordance with the AGM's decision, the members of the Nomination Committee shall consist of the Chairman of the Board and one representative each for the three largest shareholders on the last banking day of August each year. If such shareholders do not wish to appoint a member of the Nomination Committee, the fourth largest registered owner shall be asked, etc. The members thus appointed together with the Chairman of the Board as convening, shall constitute the Nomination Committee.
The Annual General Meeting has adopted instructions for the Nomination Committee, which can be downloaded below.
