CapMan Plc Stock Exchange Release - 20 March 2013 at 3:15 pm EET
Decisions adopted at the organising meeting of CapMan Plc Board of Directors
Heikki Westerlund was elected Chairman and Karri Kaitue Vice Chairman of the
Board of Directors at the Board of Directors' organising meeting that took
place today after the Annual General Meeting.
The Board of Directors established Audit, Remuneration and Nomination
Committees from among its members as follows:
-Karri Kaitue (Chairman)
-Nora Kerppola (Chairman)
-Claes de Neergaard
-Heikki Westerlund (Chairman)
Independence of the members of the Board of Directors
The Board of Directors assessed the independence of its members and concluded
that Karri Kaitue, Nora Kerppola and Claes de Neergaard are independent of
both the company and its significant shareholders. Koen Dejonckheere is
independent of the company, but non-independent of its significant
shareholders. Ari Tolppanen and Heikki Westerlund are non-independent of both
the company and its significant shareholders.
CapMan Plc deviates from recommendation 29 of the Finnish Corporate Governance
Code, which corresponds to the independence of the majority of the Nomination
Committee members. Ari Tolppanen and Heikki Westerlund are non-independent of
the company. The Board of Directors considers the Nomination Committee
memberships of Messrs Tolppanen and Westerlund to be justified due to their
significant ownership of the company's stock. In addition, the Nomination
Committee's preparation process for the election of members of the Board of
Directors includes consultation with the largest shareholders. The Board of
Directors has decided, in accordance with recommendation 22, that due to the
overall small size of the Board, the Audit Committee comprises two members.
