KPMG - auditor appointed by the AGM

The external audit of the accounts, including of the administration and management by the board and the CEO, and of internal control, is conducted in accordance with the International Standards on Auditing (ISA) and generally accepted auditing standards in Sweden.

The external auditor reports to the audit committee, the CEO and the management teams within the Company's divisions. In connection with the annual accounts, the auditor also presents the conclusion of its audit to the board.

The external auditor attends at least two board meetings per year. At these occasions, the auditor is to discuss the audit with the directors without the presence of the CEO or any other member of the executive management team.

The auditor is appointed by the annual general meeting to serve until the end of the next annual general meeting. At the annual general meeting on 28 March 2024, the registered accounting firm KPMG was re-elected as auditor. The authorized public accountant Marc Karlsson (authorised public accountant and a member of FAR) was re-appointed auditor in charge.
