Enzymatica: Extraordinary shareholders' meeting on changes to the board of directors
The board of directors of Enzymatica has resolved to convene an extraordinary shareholders' meeting to be held on 19 December 2016 regarding changes to the composition of the board of directors. Bengt Baron is proposed as new chairman of Enzymatica and Mats K Andersson and Louise Nicolin as new board members. A notice convening the extraordinary shareholders' meeting is to be distributed within short. The company has been informed that shareholders representing more than 50 per cent of the shares and votes of Enzymatica support the proposal.
The background of the resolution by the board of directors to convene an extraordinary shareholders' meeting is that the new large shareholders of Enzymatica wish to have influence on the company's operations and that the board of directors represents the new shareholder structure in a more appropriate manner. The company has been informed that Gudmundur Palmason and Sigurgeir Gudlaugsson with families (directly and indirectly through companies), Mats K Andersson (directly and indirectly through companies), Fibonacci Asset Management AB and RoosGruppen AB are supporting the proposal. These investors became shareholders earlier this year in connection with Enzymatica's acquisition of the Icelandic company Zymetech and through the implementation of two new share issues, which provided Enzymatica with a capital contribution of approximately MSEK 100 before issue expenses. At the same time, it has been Lennart Nilsson's (Enzymatica's present chairman) wish, after the acquisition of Zymetech and the new share issues, to hand over the chairmanship to somebody who can follow the company during a longer period.
The proposal entails that the company's board of directors will consist of six ordinary board members compared to today's seven board members, that the board members Lennart Nilsson, Hans Pihl, Nils Siegbahn and Monica Wallter will leave the board of directors and that Bengt Baron, Mats K Andersson and Louise Nicolin will be appointed as new board members up to and including the next annual general meeting. Marianne Dicander Alexandersson, Gudmundur Palmason and Sigurgeir Gudlaugsson remain as board members. Bengt Baron is proposed chairman of the board of directors.
