Committees of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors may establish permanent committees to assist the Board of Directors in the preparation and performance of its tasks and duties, and decide on their size, composition and duties. In its meeting held on 23 November 2021, Lamor’s Board of Directors resolved to establish the Audit Committee, which activities have been described in more detail below. The term of the Audit Committee begins as of the listing.

Audit Committee

The purpose of the Audit Committee is to assist the Board of Directors by preparing the matters falling within the competence of the Board of Directors. The Audit Committee prepares matters relating to, for example, financial reporting, risk management, monitoring and evaluation of related party transactions, auditors, internal audit as well as the compliance with laws and regulations. The Board of Directors has determined the main duties and operating principles of the Audit Committee in a written charter.

Lamor’s Board of Directors appoints the chairman and the members of the audit committee. The Audit Committee consists of three members of the Board of Directors whose term is one year, and the term ends at the close of the Annual General Meeting following the election. A majority of the members of the Audit Committee must be independent of Lamor and at least one member of the Audit Committee must be independent of Lamor’s significant shareholders. A person who participates in the day-to-day management (for example, as the CEO) of Lamor or another company in the same group of companies, cannot be appointed to the Audit Committee at all.

The members of the Audit Committee must have sufficient expertise and experience with respect to the Committee’s area of responsibility and the mandatory tasks relating to auditing. At least one Audit Committee member must have expertise in accounting or auditing.

In its meeting on 23 November 2021, Lamor’s Board of Directors appointed Timo Rantanen as the chair of the Audit Committee and Nina Ehrnrooth and Kaisa Lipponen as members of the Audit Committee.
