Item 7 – Election of new auditor
The board of directors proposes that the Company’s current auditor, KPMG AB, be dismissed and that WeAudit Sweden AB be elected as auditor until the end of the annual general meeting 2023. The reasons for the proposed change of auditor are the need for specific audit experience and knowledge about digitalization and crypto due the Company’s issue of digital owner certificates in the form of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) in connection with the launch of an ultra-premium product earlier this year, as well as cost savings. WeAudit Sweden AB has informed the Company that the authorized public accountant Mikael Köver will be auditor in charge in the event that WeAudit Sweden AB is elected as the Company’s auditor. It is proposed that the remuneration of the Company’s auditor be paid in accordance with the invoice approved by the board of directors.
Item 8 – Decision on the composition of the board of directors
Board members Katri Teller and Tuomas Kukkonen have announced that they are unable to continue as board members of the Company.
The board of directors, therefore, proposes that the general meeting resolves to reduce the number of board members to four and that the board thus shall consist of Antti Villanen (chairman), Gustaf Björnberg (board member), Petri Heino (board member) and Johan Biehl (board member).
Item 9 – Resolution to authorize the board of directors to undertake minor adjustments of the resolutions
The board of directors proposes that the meeting authorizes the board of directors, the CEO or any other person appointed by the board of directors to make such minor adjustments and clarifications too the resolutions adopted by the meeting as may be necessary for the registration of the resolutions.
