With the support of the instructions for the Nomination Committee and of information in Euroclear Sweden's owner register, the Nomination Committee for the Annual General Meeting 2023 in Troax Group AB (publ) consisted of Johan Menckel (Chairman), Investment AB Latour, Patrik Jönsson, SEB Investment Management, Thomas Widstrand, own holding and Anders Mörck, Chairman of the Troax Group as co-opted.

The Nomination Committee has held four meetings and reconciled regularly via telephone and e-mail. At the meetings, the Nomination Committee discussed the issues that a Nomination Committee has to deal with by the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance. The shareholders have been informed that comments and proposals can be submitted to the Nomination Committee. No comments were received from the shareholders to the Nomination Committee on the issues.

The Chairman of the Board, Anders Mörck, is proposed as Chairman of the Annual General Meeting.

The Nomination Committee proposes the following principles for the appointment of the Nomination Committee:

The Chairman of the Board shall contact the three largest shareholders in the company in terms of voting rights by the last banking day in August each year. In these principles, the three largest owners mean the Euroclear Sweden AB registered and owner grouped as of the last banking day in August.[1] Each of these owners is entitled to appoint a representative to constitute a nomination committee until a new nomination committee has been appointed. None of these three representatives should be any of the board members. The Chairman of the Board shall be co-opted to the Nomination Committee. If one of the three largest owners waives their right to appoint a representative to the nomination committee, the right proceeds to the next shareholder's order. Suppose a member leaves the nomination committee before its work is completed. In that case, if the nomination committee so decides, the replacement shall be appointed by the same shareholder who appointed the resigned member, or, if that shareholder no longer belongs to the three largest shareholders in terms of votes, by the shareholder who has been added to this group. Suppose the company's ownership changes before the Nomination Committee has completed its work. In that case, the Nomination Committee shall have the right to change the composition of the Nomination Committee in the manner that it considers appropriate. A complete proposal regarding establishing principles for the Nomination Committee is presented in a separate appendix and available on the company's website,

[1] Ownership statistics to be used must be sorted by voting strength (owner-grouped) and contain the 25 largest shareholders registered in Sweden, i.e., shareholders with an account with Euroclear Sweden AB in their name or shareholders holding a custody account with a trustee who has stated that shareholder’s identity to Euroclear Sweden AB.

Determination of the number of board members (item 12)

The Nomination Committee proposes that the number of Board members elected by the Annual General Meeting during the coming term shall be six. In addition to these six members, there are employee representatives who the Annual General Meeting does not elect.

Determination of the number of auditors and deputy auditors (item 13)

The Nomination Committee proposes that a registered audit firm be appointed as an auditor and that no deputy auditor is appointed.

Determination of fees to the members of the Board of Directors and auditors (item 14)

The Nomination Committee proposes that the board fees for the coming year be as follows. The fee is proposed to be SEK 720,000 (695,000) for the Chairman of the Board and to each SEK 290,000 (280,000) for other members elected by the Annual General Meeting except the CEO. The proposal means that the total remuneration to the Board of Directors will be SEK 1,880,000 (1,815,000). Amounts in parentheses describe the previous level. The Nomination Committee further proposes that fees for audit committee work should be paid with SEK 112,000 (108,000) to the chairman and SEK 86,000 (83,000) to the member, and fees for remuneration committee work will be paid with SEK 54,000 (52,000) to the chairman and 27,000 (26,000) for a member. The Nomination Committee has analyzed the fees compared to similar companies based on a number of different measures of size and complexity. According to the Nomination Committee, this analysis's outcome shows that the proposal for new board fees is market-based. The auditor is proposed to be paid a fee according to the invoices approved by the company.

Election of Board members and Chairman (item 15)

The Nomination Committee proposes the re-election of Anders Mörck, Eva Nygren, Anna Stålenbring, Fredrik Hansson, Bertil Persson, and Thomas Widstrand.

Election of auditor and deputy auditor (item 16)

The Nomination Committee proposes the re-election of the registered audit firm Öhrlings Pricewaterhouse-Coopers AB until the end of the Annual General Meeting 2024. Öhrlings PricewaterhouseCoopers AB has announced that Johan Palmgren will continue as the main responsible auditor.

Decision on the disposition of the company's profit according to the adopted balance sheet (item 9 b)

The Board of Directors proposes that the company's profits be allocated so that EUR 0.32, a total of EUR 19.2 million, is distributed to the shareholders and that the remaining part of the company's profit, approximately EUR 23.8 million, is carried forward. The Board of Directors further proposes that April 28th, 2023, should be the record date for the payment of dividends. If the Annual General Meeting resolves following the proposal, the dividend is expected to be distributed to those included in the share register on the record day through Euroclear Sweden AB's provision on May 8th, 2023.

Acquisition and transfer of treasury shares (item 17)

The Board of Directors proposes that the meeting authorizes the Board to decide, on one or more occasions, until the next Annual General Meeting on the acquisition of its shares. Acquisitions may be made of so many shares that the company owns a maximum of ten (10) percent of all shares in the company.

The shares may be acquired partly through an offer addressed to all shareholders and partly through trading on Nasdaq Stockholm. In the case of acquisitions on Nasdaq Stockholm, the price shall, at the time of acquisition, be the current market price with deviations that do not exceed the quoted price interval at any given time. The acquisition is mainly intended to fulfill the obligations under call option programs.

The Board is also proposed to be authorized, on one or more occasions, until the company's next Annual General Meeting, to have the right to decide on the transfer of the own shares the company holds at the time of the Board's transfer decision. The transfer may be effected through trading on Nasdaq Stockholm at a price within the quoted price range at any given time.

The transfer of treasury shares may be used to cover the company's commitments following the proposed call option program in item 20. Such transfer may be made at a price in cash or value of the acquired property which, in the case of acquisitions, corresponds to the stock price at the time of the transfer or which corresponds to a transfer by issued call options, a price set by independent advisors such as market-based at the time of issuance of the options.

The Board of Director’s remuneration report (item 18)

The Board has prepared a remuneration report proposed to be approved by the Annual General Meeting. The remuneration report is among the Board’s complete proposals on the company’s website.

Decision on guidelines for remuneration to senior executives (item 19)

The Board of Directors established a proposal for new guidelines for AGM 2022, a proposal that the AGM approved. This year's guidelines are unchanged compared with the previous year. The Board's complete proposal for guidelines can be read in a special appendix to this notice, titled “The Board's proposal for guidelines for salaries and other remuneration to senior executives within the Troax Group”. It can be found on the company's website,

Decision on call option programs for senior executives (item 20)

The Board of Directors proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves on a call option program aimed at senior executives within Troax Group AB (publ) or its subsidiaries. It is proposed that the Annual General Meeting instruct the Board to issue call options for a maximum of 300,000 shares, corresponding to a maximum of 0.5 percent of the total number of shares and votes in the company. Until the next Annual General Meeting, senior executives will be offered the option of acquiring call options of a maximum of 300,000 shares. The terms for the call options shall be market-based by accepted valuation models at the time of each issuance. The option premium shall constitute 10 percent of the share price at the time of issue. The term of the options shall be a maximum of 3.9 years from its issuance, and the exercise period shall be 20 May 2027 – 30 June 2027. An independent appraiser shall determine the exercise price at each occasion by applying the Black & Scholes valuation model. The Board's proposal means that the Annual General Meeting approves that the company, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, transfer up to 300,000 shares to the option holders at the exercise price determined for the options in connection with any exercise of the call options (subject to any conversion due to, among other things, fund issue, aggregation or division of shares, new share issue, reduction of share capital or similar action). Troax Group AB holds 83,343 own shares at the time of the notice.

The Board of Directors also proposes that the meeting approves of transfer of shares acquired following item 17 for obligations under call option programs. The Board has prepared the decision in its entirety. The proposal is part of creating a long-term incentive for important employees. The proposal is considered to be of reasonable scope for employees and Troax's shareholders' collective. The Board intends to return at future Annual General Meetings with similar proposals. As the program is offered at market terms and poses a financial risk to the executive, no social security costs are incurred.


At the time of this notice, the total number of shares in the company amounts to 60,000,000 shares, corresponding to a total of 60,000,000 votes. At the time of the notice, the company holds 83,343 shares in treasury.

The Board of Directors and the CEO shall, if any shareholder so requests, and the Board of Directors considers it can be done without material harm to the company, to provide information on conditions that may affect the assessment of a matter on the agenda and conditions that may affect the financial situation of Troax Group AB and its subsidiary(ies) or Troax Group AB’s relationship with other group companies and the consolidated accounts.

Annual report with the audit report, complete proposals for resolutions, and other documents that will be available before the meeting, according to the Companies Act and the Swedish Code of Corporate Governance will be available at the company, Troax Group AB (publ), Tyngel, 335 04 Hillerstorp and on the company's website: no later than three weeks before the Annual General Meeting and will be sent to the shareholders who so wish and state their address.


For a proper resolution regarding item 17, according to the above proposal, a majority requirement of two-thirds (2/3) of the votes cast and the shares represented at the Annual General Meeting applies. For a proper resolution regarding item 20, a majority requirement of nine-tenths (9/10) of the votes cast and the shares represented at the Annual General Meeting applies.
