In general, Boliden is in compliance with the Swedish regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting.
Under ITEM 20, it is proposed to establish a(n) (external) nomination committee. Like several international institutional investors, ECGS has concerns over the bundled form under which the election of directors is put to shareholders vote in Sweden. We therefore have decided to take above mentioned concerns (if applicable) into account and express these at the resolution on the nomination committee, since in Sweden said committee is responsible for nominating candidates to the board of directors (either in bundled or unbundled form). As the election of the board of directors is proposed as a slate (bundled) at this year's AGM, we recommend opposition to the establishment of the nomination committee.
There are no further peculiarities.
