Annual General Meeting, 17 June 2020
Specific measures due to the Coronavirus
Due to the spread of the virus causing Covid-19, Artificial Solutions has taken several precautions in connection with the AGM to protect shareholders’ and employees’ health and to prevent the risk of spreading the virus. The precautions include:
- Postal voting is offered in accordance with the temporary law for general meetings.
- No drinks or food will be served.
- Customary speeches will be minimized.
- Participation by the management, board of directors and other attendees who are not shareholders will be limited.
Shareholders are encouraged to comply with the authorities’ recommendations and take responsibility to prevent from spreading the virus, as well as exercising the possibility of postal voting or participate by proxy instead of participating in person.
Possibility of postal voting
In order for shareholders to be able to participate and exercise as much influence as possible, on 3 April 2020 the Swedish Parliament decided to introduce a temporary law entailing a possibility for shareholders to exercise their voting rights at the AGM by postal voting, although not set forth in the articles of association or the notice. Artificial Solutions has decided that shareholders are to be able to exercise their voting rights in such a way. The company wishes to enable for shareholders to vote by post in order to minimize the number of participants attending the AGM in person and thus reduce the risk of spreading the virus that causes Covid-19.
The form for postal voting can be found below. The completed and signed form and any authorization documents, if applicable, shall in due time be sent by post to Cirio Advokatbyrå AB, “AGM”, Att. Sarah Rehnström, P.O Box 3294, SE-103 65 Stockholm, Sweden or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The voting form shall have reached the Company no later than 11 June 2020.
Shareholders who exercise the possibility of postal voting and whose postal vote has been received by the Company by 11 June 2020 do not have to register separately for the annual general meeting since such postal vote will also be considered as a notification. Please note that the shareholder must, if applicable, temporarily enter the shares held via bank or other nominee in their own name (as set out in the notice) even if the shareholder intends to carry out their voting rights by postal voting.

Swedish Code of Corporate Governance
The Swedish Code of Corporate Governance (the “Code”) shall be applied by companies whose shares are admitted to trading on a regulated market. The code does not currently have to be applied by companies whose shares are listed on Nasdaq First North. It is therefore not binding on Artificial Solutions, but is an important part of the Company’s guidelines for corporate governance. If the Code becomes binding for Artificial Solutions, the Company will apply it.
At the AGM on February 28, 2019, it was decided to adopt principles for the appointment of the Nomination Committee. The following principles apply to the appointment of the Nomination Committee. The Chairman of the Board was instructed to contact the three largest shareholders or the groups of owners in terms of voting rights (herewith referred to both direct registered shareholders and nominee-registered shareholders) in the Company, according to Euroclear Sweden’s transcript of the share register as of September 30, 2019, and urge them to appoint a representative each to, together with the Chairman of the Board, constitute the Nomination Committee for the time until the new nomination committee has been appointed according to the mandate from the next AGM. If one of the three largest shareholders or owner groups does not wish to appoint a representative, the fourth largest shareholder or the owner group should be asked and so on, until the Nomination Committee consists of three members and the Chairman of the Board.
Information about the names of the members of the Nomination Committee must be submitted no later than six months prior the AGM 2020 on the Company’s website as soon as possible after the Nomination Committee has been constituted. If owners, who are represented on the Nomination Committee, no longer belong to the three largest shareholders after the announcement, their representative shall make their place available and such shareholders belonging to the three largest shareholders shall instead be offered a place in the Company’s nomination committee. However, there is no need to consider minor changes. If a member leaves the nomination committee before its work is completed and if the Nomination Committee considers that there is a need to replace this member, the Nomination Committee shall appoint a new member according to the principles above but based on Euroclear Sweden’s printing of the share register as soon as possible after the member left the Nomination Committee. Owners who have appointed a representative in the Nomination Committee have the right to dismiss such a member and appoint a new representative.
The current Nomination Committee is:
- Andreas Ossmark, Scope
- Bengt Kileus, AFA Försäkring
- Henrik Söderberg, C Worldwide
Audit and Compensation Committee
The Swedish Code of Corporate Governance does not currently have to be applied by companies whose shares are listed on Nasdaq First North, and is therefore not binding on Artificial Solutions, however, it is an important part of the Company’s guidelines for corporate governance. In the cases of the Audit Committee and Remuneration Committee, the Board of Directors has made the assessment that committees should be established for both.
The Remuneration Committee consists of Johan Ekesiöö (chairman) and Johan Gustavsson.
The Audit Committee consists of Fredrik Oweson (chairman) and Åsa Hedin.
Internal Control and Audit
According to the Swedish Companies Act (2005:551), the Board of Directors has the overall responsibility for ensuring that the Company’s organization is designed so that the bookkeeping, the financial management and the Company’s financial conditions in general are monitored in a satisfactory manner. Artificial Solutions’ internal control structure is based on the division of responsibilities between the Board and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Regular reporting and auditing of financial outcomes takes place in both the operational units’ management bodies as well as within the board.
According to the Articles of Association of Artificial Solutions, one or two auditors with or without deputy auditors, or one or two registered auditing firms, shall be appointed by the General Meeting. The auditor and deputy auditors, if applicable, are appointed yearly at the Annual General Meeting for the period until the next Annual General Meeting has been held.
The auditor reviews the annual report of Artificial Solutions, and accounting, as well as the administration of the board and the CEO. The current auditor is presented under the heading “Auditors” in the section “Board of Directors, senior executives and auditor”.
Grant Thornton Sweden AB has been the Company’s auditor since 2019; it was elected at the Extraordinary General Meeting on January 28, 2019 and was re-elected at the Annual General Meeting 2019, for the period until the end of the AGM 2020. Carl-Johan Regell (born 1963) is the chief auditor. Carl-Johan Regell is an authorized auditor and member of FAR (the industry organization for auditors in Sweden). Grant Thornton Sweden AB’s address is Sveavägen 20, Box 7623, 103 94 Stockholm.
Öhrlings PricewaterhouseCoopers AB was the Company’s auditor during the period covered by the historical financial information in the Company description up to and including the Extraordinary General Meeting on January 28, 2019. The chief auditor during the period from the Annual General Meeting 2018 until the end of the Extraordinary General Meeting on January 28, 2019 was Nicklas Kullberg. The chief auditor during the period covered by the historical financial information up to and including the Annual General Meeting 2018 was Dick Svensson. Both Nicklas Kullberg and Dick Svensson are authorized auditors and members of FAR (the industry organization for auditors in Sweden).
The reason for the change of auditor was to select the same auditor for the entire Group after the Reverse Acquisition.
