Studsvik AB (publ), corporate identity number 556501-0997, gives notice to attend the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on Wednesday June 23, 2021.
Under a temporary Act (2020:198) that aims to reduce the risk of spreading infection, the general meeting will be held without any physical meeting and consequently it is not possible for shareholders to attend in person or through a proxy. Instead, shareholders can exercise their voting rights by sending their votes for the meeting in advance through postal voting.
Registration and notification of attendance
The service for digital postal voting is provided by Poströsta.se (www.postrosta.se) and shareholders with questions about the postal voting form can contact email@example.com help.
To participate in the Annual General Meeting, shareholders with nominee-registered shares must have the shares temporarily re-registered in their own name as at the record date, June 15, 2021 and the bank/nominee should be contacted in good time before this date. The nominee has the possibility of effecting voting rights registration retroactively, though no later than by June 17, 2021 to be taken into consideration in the compilation of the general meeting register of shareholders.
Proxies and powers of attorney
Shareholders who vote by post through a proxy must issue a dated and signed power of attorney, to be attached to the digital postal voting form together with the certificate of registration for shareholders that are legal entities. The power of attorney may not be older than one year unless it specifies that it is valid for a longer period, though no more than five years. A proxy form is available on the company's website, www.studsvik.se.
Information about decisions taken will be published on the day of the meeting as soon as the outcome of the postal voting is compiled.
On the postal voting form shareholders can request that decisions on one or more of the items on the proposed agenda be postponed until a "continued general meeting" is held, which may not be conducted solely through postal voting. Such a continued general meeting must be held if the general meeting so resolves or if owners of at least one tenth of all shares in the company so request.

The Board of Directors prepared the proposals for items 4, 8 and 15.
The Nomination Committee proposes that Anders Ullberg be elected to chair the meeting or, if he is prevented from attending, the person assigned by the Board.
The voting list proposed for approval is the voting list prepared by Poströsta.se on behalf of the company, based on the general meeting register of shareholders and postal votes received, checked and approved by the verifiers.
The Board of Directors proposes that Carina Heilborn (who represents Peter Gyllenhammar AB) and Thomas Samuelsson, or if either or both of them are prevented from attending, the person or persons assigned by the Board, as verifiers of the minutes of the general meeting. The task of the verifiers also includes checking the voting list and that postal votes received are correctly reported in the minutes of the general meeting.
The Board of Directors proposes to the Annual General Meeting that dividend of SEK 1 per share be distributed for the 2020 financial year and that Monday, June 28, 2021 be the record date for the dividend and that the remaining profit at the disposal of the Annual General Meeting be carried forward.
The Nomination Committee proposes that the number of Board members elected by the general meeting of shareholders shall be five.
The Nomination Committee further proposes that, as before, no fee be payable for work in the Remuneration Committee and that auditors' fees shall be payable in accordance with an approved invoice.
The Nomination Committee proposes re-election of Jan Barchan, Anna Karinen, Agneta Nestenborg and Anders Ullberg, and election of Erik Strömqvist as Chair of the Board. Peter Gossas has declined re-election.
The Nomination Committee, with the assistance of the Audit Committee, has conducted a competitive tender procurement and proposes the election of the registered public accounting firm KPMG AB as the company's auditor until the close of the 2022 Annual General Meeting.
The Nomination Committee proposes that the Meeting resolve to appoint a new Nomination Committee ahead of the Annual General Meeting in 2022, consisting of the members Jan Barchan (Briban Invest AB), Sven Ericsson (Karinen family), Peter Gyllenhammar (Peter Gyllenhammar AB) and Anders Ullberg (Chair of the Board).
The proposal is based on the instruction approved by the 2010 Annual General Meeting for appointing members of the Nomination Committee. The Nomination Committee has not found any reason to propose any change to the instruction applicable to the Nomination Committee, which consequently will continue to apply until otherwise resolved by a general meeting of shareholders.
The Board of Directors proposes that the guidelines for remuneration to senior management adopted by the Annual General Meeting on June 23, 2020 should continue to apply.
The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting approve the Board's report on remuneration prepared in accordance with Chapter 8, Section 53 a of the Swedish Companies Act.
