Members of the Nomination Committee of Scania AB appointed
On 29 April 2005, the Scania AGM decided to establish a Nomination Committee in accordance with the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance. Under the terms of this decision, each of the five shareholders with the highest numbers of votes – with the exception of Ainax AB, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Scania AB – has the right to appoint one member. Together with Board Chairman Bernd Pischetsrieder, these members will comprise the Nomination Committee. The names of the members and the owners they represent must be announced publicly no later than six months before the next AGM.
Since Renault S.A.S., as one of the five largest owners, has announced that the company not will appoint a member, the Nomination Committee will consist of members from the four largest shareholders, with the exception of Ainax AB.
The following have been appointed to the Nomination Committee together with the chairman of the board of Scania:
Gudrun Letzel, representing Volkswagen AG
Adine Grate Axén, chairperson, representing Investor AB
Marcus Wallenberg, representing Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation
Ramsay Brufer, representing Alecta
According to the shareholder’s register as of 30 September 2005, the members who have been appointed to the Nomination Committee represent over 50% of the shareholders’ votes. The voting representations and shareholdings of the respective owners in Scania are listed in the ownership structure published under the heading of ’Investor Relations’ on the company’s web site at www.scania.com
