Honorary Chairman

Anders Wall

Chairman of the Board
1993–2016

Remuneration Committee. The Board has appointed a Remuneration Committee comprising Johnny Alvarsson, Caroline af Ugglas and Johan Wall (Chairman). The Remuneration Committee prepares motions regarding the President’s salary and other employment terms. The Committee also prepares principles for remuneration to Group management and approves motions by the President regarding remuneration to Group management within the framework of the guidelines adopted by the Annual General Meeting. The company’s remuneration principles and guidelines are described in Note 2, and the Board of Directors’ recommendation to the Annual General Meeting is that these remain unchanged for 2020.

Audit Committee. The Board of Directors has appointed an Audit Committee comprising Anders Ullberg (Chairman), Oskar Hellström and Johan Wall. The Group’s CFO reports to the Committee. The Audit Committee is mainly for the purpose of supervising the Group’s financial reporting and the audit of the financial statements.

Johan Wall, Johnny Alvarsson, Caroline af Ugglas and Anders Ullberg.

The tasks of the Committee include preparing for the Board’s work to quality assure the financial reporting by reviewing the interim reports, annual report and consolidated financial statements. The Committee also reviews legal and tax-related issues that may have a material impact on the financial reports. The Audit Committee also reviews the impartiality of the appointed auditors and decides which services, in addition to the audit, are to be procured from the auditors. Where appropriate, the Committee handles the procurement of audit services. Finally, the Audit Committee evaluates the quality of the internal control of financial reporting. The Committee held five meetings during the year, which were attended by all members. The Chief Auditor participated in two of these meetings.

The Annual General Meeting 2020, it was decided that the following members would be appointed to the Nomination Committee: Chairman of the Board Johan Wall, Anders G. Carlberg (representing the principal owner) and three representatives of the next largest shareholders who have indicated their willingness to participate in the Nomination Committee, namely Elisabet Jamal Bergström (SEB Fonder), Vegard Søraunet (Odin Fonder) and Henrik Didner (Didner & Gerge). Johan Wall was elected as Chairman of the Nomination Committee.

The Nomination Committee will submit motions concerning the Board of Directors, the Chairman of the Board, directors’ fees, the auditor, auditors’ fees and the Chairman of the 2021 Annual General Meeting. The Nomination Committee instruction is set out in the minutes of the Annual General Meeting.

Shareholders who wishes to submit proposals to Beijer Alma’s Nomination Committee could do that as latest as January 10, 2021 to the following address: Beijer Alma AB, Attn: Nomination Committee, Box 1747, SE-751 47 Uppsala, Sweden.

Senior executives comprise the Group’s senior management, including the President, the presidents of the three sub-groups and the Parent Company’s Chief Financial Officer.

All of these individuals have a total remuneration package consisting of a fixed basic salary, a variable salary, a defined-contribution pension and other benefits (mainly company car benefits). The total remuneration package is to reflect market conditions. The variable salary for senior executives who are employed by the Parent Company is based on the Group’s profitability and growth and, for senior executives employed by a subsidiary, on the subsidiary’s profitability. Variable remuneration is always maximized at 100 percent of basic salary.

The Remuneration Committee has evaluated the model for determining variable remuneration and has found that the outcomes are in line with the Group’s strategy for value creation and that the total remuneration package for senior executives is competitive.
The Board’s proposal was included in the notice for approval by the 2020 Annual General Meeting. The Annual General Meeting resolved to adopt the Board’s proposal.

Currently, there are no outstanding share or share-related incentive programs. Read more about: guidelines for remuneration of senior management
