In accordance with the Company’s instructions for the Nomination Committee, the three largest shareholders in the Company are entitled to appoint one representative each to the Company’s Nomination Committee. If any shareholder chooses to waive his or her right to appoint a member to the Nomination Committee, the right shall pass to the next largest shareholder. Kenneth Synnersten intends to participate in the Nomination Committee to be appointed based on the ownership as of the last business day of September 2022, provided that his current ownership continues to entitle him to appoint a representative. Mats Synnersten, Annelie Arnbäck and Jan Synnersten have, however, indicated that they wish to refrain from appointing one representative each to the Nomination Committee.

The change in how the family owns its holdings in Arla Plast is of a technical nature and does not change my or the family's view of the company. The distribution means that we will now make individual decisions regarding our respective holdings, but my own commitment to the company will remain strong and I am sure that the same applies to my family”, says Kenneth Synnersten, Chairman of the Board and one of the largest shareholders in Arla Plast.
