“ Metroland’s proposal for new Board in PetroGrand AB
As shareholder in PetroGrand AB, org. No. 556615-2350 (the "Company"), requests Metroland BVBA ("Metroland") that the following proposal of a new Board is admitted to treatment at the Extra General Meeting of the Company.
Metroland suggests Mats Jansson, Thomas Eriksson and Anders Ahlm to be elected as Directors of the Board until the next Annual General Meeting.
The objective with this proposal is to establish a vision of the Company’s future operations within the Company’s management. Metroland is positive to Shelton Petroleum AB's public takeover bid. In case of Shelton's takeover offer is not completed or the current Board dissuades the takeover bid, the proposed Board intends to wind-up the Company’s operations in Russia. Thereafter the Company's remaining liquid assets will be transferred to the shareholders. The objective of this action is to utilize the Company’s worth to its shareholders.
