E.     Appointment of state authorised public accountant.

The Board of Directors proposes re-election of PricewaterhouseCoopers Statsautoriseret Revisionspartnerselskab in accordance with recommendation of the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee has not been influenced by third parties and has not been governed by any third-party agreement that restricts the annual general meeting’s election of certain auditors or audit companies.

 

F.     Proposals from the Board of Directors for: 

1) Amendment of the Company’s shares from bearer shares to registered shares.

The shift from bearer shares to registered shares is suggested to be implemented through the following amendments to the articles of association:

In article 4.4 of the Company's articles of association, the second sentence will be amended to the following:

”For capital increases pursuant to articles 4.2 and 4.3 applies that the new shares will be issued as registered shares.”

Article 5.1 of the articles of association is amended to the following wording:

”The shares are registered shares.”

Article 5.3 of the articles of association will be revoked resulting in renumbering of the subsequent provisions. In addition, references to amended or relocated provisions are adjusted.

The background for the proposal is a change in legislation which means that it is no longer possible to issue new shares as bearer shares, just as voting rights on issued bearer shares require listing or announcement to the Company.

2) Amendment of the election term for board members, entailing that all board members elected by the annual general meeting will stand for re-election at the annual general meeting.

The change is suggested to be implemented through the following amendment to the articles of association:

Article 10.2 of the articles of association is amended to the following wording:

"Board members elected by the annual general meeting are elected for one year at a time. Retiring members can be re-elected."

The proposal follows the recommendations for corporate governance.

3) Amendment of language

(a) Amendment of corporate language to English.

The corporate language will be inserted in the articles of association with a new article 12.1 containing the following wording:

"The Company’s corporate language is English."

The current articles 12-15 will be renumbered to articles 13-16.

The background for the proposal is that the Company is an international shipping company which operates in English and wants to be able to attract non-Danish speaking candidates for the Board of Directors.

The amendment of the corporate language to English will entail that the common language for the Group’s strategies, overall policies, general documentation and basis for decision-making in general will be English. At the same time, English as the corporate language will mean that board meetings may be held in English.

(b) The Company’s annual report will be prepared and published in English from the financial year 2017 onwards.

If the annual general meeting adopts the proposal, it will be entered into the articles of association. The Board of Directors plans to prepare an extended summary of the annual report in Danish.

 

G.     Any other business.

The Company's share capital is DKK 42,200,000 divided into shares of DKK 1 each. Each share of DKK 1 will carry one vote at the general meeting.
