Holmen’s AGM, held on Thursday 16 April, resolved in favour of paying a dividend of SEK 10 per share for the 2014 financial year, which is an increase of 1 SEK per share compared to the preceding year.

The AGM elected Henriette Zeuchner, President and CEO of Berling Media, as a new member of the Board and re-elected Fredrik Lundberg, Carl Bennet, Lars G. Josefsson, Carl Kempe, Louise Lindh, Ulf Lundahl, Göran Lundin and Henrik Sjölund. Fredrik Lundberg was re-elected Chairman of the Board.

KPMG AB was re-elected as company auditors. Joakim Thilstedt, authorised public accountant, has been appointed principal auditor.

The AGM resolved in favour of mandating the Board for the period until the next AGM to make decisions to buy back the company’s own shares via the stock market. Acquisitions may be made of up to so many Class B shares that the company’s own shareholding does not exceed 10 per cent of all shares in the company at any time. The Board was also mandated to make decisions to use bought-back shares as settlement for acquisitions or to finance such acquisitions. The 2014 AGM gave the Board a corresponding mandate.

The address to the AGM by Henrik Sjölund, President and CEO, is available on our website www.holmen.com
