Meeting attendance

The Board’s work is governed by the Swedish Companies Act, the Articles of Association, the Code and the formal work plan adopted by the Board each year.

The Board’s work follows a plan intended, among other things, to ensure the Board receives all necessary information. The formal work plan regulates the division of the Board’s work between the Board and its committees and among the Board, its Chairman and the President.

The work plan also contains provisions for meeting the Board’s needs for information and financial reporting on an ongoing basis as well as instructions for the President and the company’s Board committees.

The Board’s last fiscal year meeting attendance is shown below.
