During the year, the Board has had a special Audit Committee consisting of Chairman Ulf Barkman and Petter Stillström. The Audit Committee shall, without it otherwise affecting the Board's responsibilities and duties, oversee the company's financial reporting and the efficiency of the company's internal control activities and risk management relating to the financial reporting, keep itself informed about the audit of the Annual Report and consolidated financial statements, examine and monitor the objectivity and independence of the auditor and specifically pre-approve any services that the auditor provides the company with other than audit-related services. The Audit Committee evaluates the audit work that has been carried out and informs the company's Nomination Committee of the results of the evaluation and assists the Nomination Committee in preparing proposals for auditors and remuneration of the auditors' work.
