All the nominees have given their consent to the position and they are independent of the company and of the company’s significant shareholders except for Timo Kokkila. Timo Kokkila is not independent of the company based on overall evaluation, especially considering his consecutive membership of the Board of Directors for more than 10 years. He is not independent of the company’s significant shareholder AS Pontos Baltic, as he is the CEO of AS Pontos Baltic.
The proposed members of the Board of Directors are presented on SRV’s website: https://www.srv.fi/en/investors/cg/board-of-directors/members-board-directors/.
The Shareholders’ Nomination Board proposes that the remuneration of members of the Board of Directors would remain unchanged and that the following annual fees would be paid:

- Vice Chair, an annual fee of EUR 48,000 (year 2021: EUR 4,000 per month),
- Board member, an annual fee of EUR 36,000 (year 2021: EUR 3,000 per month), and
- Chair of the Audit Committee, an annual fee of EUR 48,000 (year 2021: EUR 3,000 per month), if he/she does not simultaneously act as Chair or Vice Chair of the Board of Directors.
In addition, the Nomination Board proposes that EUR 700 fee per member per meeting for Board and Committee meetings be paid (year 2021: EUR 700). Travel expenses arising from work for the Board of Directors shall be reimbursed in accordance with the company’s travel policy.
The Nomination Board proposes that the aforementioned annual fees be paid in SRV Group Plc’s shares and in cash, with approximately 40% of the remuneration paid in shares. After the transfer of shares, the remaining amount is to be paid in cash. The company will acquire the shares in the name and on behalf of the Board members. The company is responsible for the costs arising from the acquisition of the shares. The shares are to be acquired within two weeks from the publishing of the interim report for the first quarter of 2022, or as soon as it is possible in accordance with applicable legislation.
