Activities of the Board of Directors
During the period from January 1, until December 31, 2019, the Board held ten scheduled meetings and one statutory meeting.
During 2020 (until and including February) one Board meeting has been held.
At all scheduled Board meetings, with the exception of the statutory Board meeting, the Board received a general report from the CEO and discussed the activities and financial results of the Company and the associated companies, as well as other pertinent projects and matters.
All meetings held during the year followed an approved agenda. Prior to each meeting, a proposed agenda and, where applicable, documents relevant to the items on the agenda were sent to the Board. The Company’s auditors attended the Board meeting in February 2019 to present the audit report and observations from the audit. At the board meeting in June, which was held in Owensboro, Kentucky, the Board visited Swedish Match’s Owensboro factory including new ZYN production premises. The Board also met with the company’s employees who told about their business.
