Board has been appointed by Munksjö Luxembourg Holding S.à r.l. (EQT) and two
groups of shareholders, as described below.
Holdings by a group of shareholders, who have agreed to nominate a joint
representative to the Nomination Board, are summed up when calculating the
share of all the voting rights, provided that the shareholders in question
present a joint written request to that effect together with a copy of such an
agreement to the Chairman of the Board no later than on 30 May preceding the
Annual General Meeting. Munksjö has been informed that two such agreements have
been made. The first agreement has been made by Antti Ahlström Perilliset Oy,
