MSAB has been informed of the Nomination Committee's proposal to the Annual General Meeting on May 11th, 2021.

Item 12 – Election of Board members and auditor 

The Nomination Committee, represented by Kenneth Andersen, Wilhelm Gruvberg and Henrik Tjernberg, propose that the Board of Directors shall consist of six Board members and that Jan-Olof Backman, Peter Gille, Ann Hellenius and Linda Nyberg shall be re-elected as Board members.
