Press Release from Skandia's Nominating Committee
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb. 8, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Skandia's nominating committee proposes that Lennart Jeansson, Birgitta Johansson-Hedberg, Kajsa Lindstahl and Anders Ullberg be re-elected and that Christer Gardell be newly elected to Skandia's board. Pursuant to a resolution by the 2004 Annual General Meeting, the mandate period is one year. At the 2004 Annual General Meeting, Bjorn Bjornsson, Karl-Olof Hammarkvist and Bernt Magnusson were elected for a two-year period, i.e., until the 2006 Annual General Meeting. The Nominating Committee proposes no change in this respect. This means that, provided the Annual General Meeting votes in favour of the committee's proposal, Skandia's board will have the following composition until the 2006 Annual General Meeting: Bjorn Bjornsson, Christer Gardell, Karl-Olof Hammarkvist, Lennart Jeansson, Birgitta Johansson-Hedberg, Kajsa Lindstahl, Bernt Magnusson and Anders Ullberg. Consequently this entails that the Board will be increased by one member. In addition, as usual the Board will also include three employee representatives.
