Sandvik - AGM 29 April 2019

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

Under ITEMS 14.1-14.8, the (re-)election of the board of directors is proposed.

In view of concerns over aggregate time commitments, ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE to the (re-)election of: Ms. Marika Fredriksson (ITEM 14.3).

Under ITEM 17, the board of directors seeks approval of the Company's executive remuneration guidelines. Although no (material) changes are proposed, ECGS is missing an actual LT component (with a performance measurement period of at least 3 years) under the guidelines. ECGS therefore recommends to vote OPPOSE.

 Under ITEM 18, the board of directors seeks approval of a LT incentive plan. In light of an insufficiently long performance period (of only 1 year), ECGS recommends to vote OPPOSE.

There are no further peculiarities.
