Board of Directors

The board of directors is the company’s second-highest decision-making body after the shareholders’ meeting. The duties of the board of directors are governed by the Swedish Companies Act, Balco’s articles of association, the Board’s Rules of Procedure and the Code.

The directors are normally elected by the annual general meeting to serve for the period until the close of the next annual general meeting and meet according to a schedule of meetings established annually. The chairman of the board of directors represents Balco in dealings with the company’s shareholders. Balco’s board of directors consists of six ordinary directors.
