The board's work

Board proceedings during 2022

During the year, the Board has so far held nineteen meetings, including four per capsulam resolutions, and plans to hold another four. The President presented the 2025 strategy. The Presidents of all Divisions presented their goals and strategies. The Board adopted the Group’s policy portfolio, the Alleima Way, and reviewed the Group’s key risk control mechanisms, such as the internal controls, the Compliance programs and the Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) system. The Board further oversaw the preparations for the Company’s listing on the Nasdaq Stockholm exchange and approved the prospectus for such listing.

The Remuneration Committee and the Audit Committee reported from their respective meetings. In respect to the Audit Committee, reported matters included accounting principles, financial outcome, ERM, compliance, Speak Up and Code of Conduct, internal control and internal audit as well as the result of the external audit. The Committees also submitted matters for resolution by the Board and the minutes and reports from these meetings were made available to the Board members.

Evaluation of the work of the Board

To ensure the quality of the work of the Board and to identify the possible need for further expertise and experience, the work of the Board and its members will be evaluated annually. In 2022, the evaluation, which will be led by the Chairman of the Board, will be carried out by way of each Board member responding anonymously to an online questionnaire. The Chairman will also hold separate evaluation discussions with all Board members. The compiled results of the evaluations will be presented to the Board as well as to the Nomination Committee.
