The work of the Nomination Committee and reasoned opinion regarding the Nomination Committee’s proposal for the board of directors

The Nomination Committee has had five meetings. The Nomination Committee has studied a conducted review of the board and spoken with a representative for the executive management of the company. The Nomination Committee’s chairman has spoken with the members of the board of directors and the company’s auditor.

The Nomination Committee motivates its proposal for the board of directors as follows:

The Nomination Committee has aspired to present at the annual general meeting a proposal which includes persons with appropriate experience and competence in fields that are crucial to the company. Diversity as regards to age, gender, education, professional background and other factors have been taken into account. The company has applied the diversity policy which is stated in rule 4.1 of the Swedish Corporate Governance Code, when compiling its proposal for a new board of directors. The Nomination Committee has also assessed the size of the board and any possible need for renewal.

The Nomination Committee has concluded that the proposed board of directors meets all stated objectives and proposes a re-election of Ulf Gundemark (also to be re-elected as chairman of the board), Holger C. Hansen (also to be re-elected as deputy chairman), Christian Frigast, Jørgen Jensen and Riitta Palomäki. Vilhelm Sundström has declined re-election. Furthermore, Nomination Committee proposes that Mats O. Paulsson and Kristina Willgård be elected as new members of the board. In sum, the Nomination Committee believes that the proposed board has the qualifications, experience and breadth appropriate to the Nordic Waterproofing’s operations, phase of development and other relevant circumstances.

The Nomination Committee proposes no changes to the principles for appointment of the nomination committee.
