In general, Industrivärden is in compliance with the Swedish regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting.

Under ITEMS 12a-12h, the (re-)election of the board of directors is proposed.In view of insufficient independent representation on the board of directors as well as concerns over aggregate time commitments, ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE to the (re-)election of: Mr. Pär Boman (ITEM 12a), Mr. Bengt Kjell (ITEM 12c), Mr. Fredrik Lundberg (ITEM 12e) and Mr. Lars Pettersson (ITEM 12g).

Under ITEM 12i, the nomination committee proposes to re-appoint Mr. Fredrik Lundberg as Chairman of the board of directors. As already mentioned above, ECGS has various concerns over his re-appointment and therefore does not support his re-election as board Chairman either. Accordingly, ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE.Finally, under ITEM 16, the board of directors seeks approval of the Company's remuneration guidelines. The proposed remuneration structure is not in line with ECGS' guidelines. ECGS therefore recommends to vote OPPOSE.
