Auditors

According to the Articles of Association, the Annual General Meeting must appoint not more than three auditors, with not more than three deputies, or an audit firm.

At the 2013 Annual General Meeting, the audit firm Deloitte AB, with Authorised Public Accountant Jan Berntsson as auditor in charge, was appointed Company auditor for a mandate period of four years. Deloitte AB is a member of a worldwide network and satisfies Kinnevik's demand for requisite expertise and geographical coverage. The auditor's independence is secured by means of the audit firm's internal guidelines and by adhering to the Audit Committee's guidelines governing the type of assignments that the audit firm may conduct in addition to the audit.
