Charter of the Nomination Committee

The current Nomination Committee of Orion Corporation was elected on 30 October 2018. 

In addition to the committees composed of Board members, the Company has a Nomination Committee which, departing from the recommendation of the Corporate Governance Code, can also include persons other than members of the Board. The reasons for departing from the Code are explained in Corporate Governance in section General principles. The majority of the members of the Committee shall be independent of the Company in the manner described in the Finnish Corporate Governance Code. Neither the President and CEO nor the other executives of the Company may be members of the committee.

According to the Nomination Committee’s charter, the members and the chairman of the committee are appointed by the Board annually. For the appointments, the Board shall hear the views of the largest shareholders in the shareholder register by the number of votes about the composition of the committee. The hearing takes place at a meeting to which the twenty (20) largest registered shareholders by the number of votes shall be invited. Shareholders not entitled to participate in General Meetings based on their shareholdings are, however, disregarded in calculating the largest shareholders. The term of office of the members ends when the Board has elected the next Nomination Committee.

The committee shall meet when necessary.

The task of the committee is to prepare and present a recommendation to the Board of Directors for the proposal to the Annual General Meeting of shareholders concerning the composition and compensation of the Board. The committee shall inform the Board of its recommendation. The recommendation prepared by the committee shall not be regarded as a proposal by a shareholder to a General Meeting of shareholders. Nor shall the recommendation have any impact on the Board’s independent decision-making powers or its right to make proposals to General Meetings of shareholders.
