Changes in Board/Management/Auditors
June 14, 2021 at 11.10 a.m. EEST
As previously announced on June 10, 2021, Tikkurila Oyj's Annual General Meeting decided to elect Michael McGarry, Timothy Knavish, Laura Alvarez, Emmanuelle Guérin, Steven Pocock, Rocco Semeraro and Ramaprasad Vadlamannati as new members of the Board of Directors, and to elect Michael McGarry as the Chairman and Timothy Knavish as the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, for a term commencing on the registration of the right and obligation of PPG Industries, Inc. or of its subsidiary to redeem minority shares with the Finnish Trade Register, and ending at the closure of the next Annual General Meeting.
PPG Finland Oy, a fully owned subsidiary of PPG Industries, Inc., has informed Tikkurila that it holds more than 90 percent of all the issued and outstanding shares in Tikkurila Oyj and voting rights carried by these shares. The right and obligation of PPG Finland Oy to redeem minority shares in Tikkurila Oyj has been registered with the Finnish Trade Register today, on June 14, 2021. Therefore, the term of office of the aforementioned new members of the Board of Directors has commenced. Consequently, the term of office of the members of the Board of Directors elected by the Annual General Meeting until the right and obligation of PPG Industries, Inc. or of its subsidiary to redeem minority shares has been registered, has ended.
Additionally, the Annual General Meeting decided to disband the Nomination Board, such resolution being conditional and becoming effective upon the registration of the right and obligation of PPG Industries, Inc. or its subsidiary to redeem minority shares with the Finnish Trade Register. As the right and obligation of PPG Finland Oy to redeem minority shares has been registered with the Finnish Trade Register today, on June 14, 2021, the Nomination Board of Tikkurila Oyj has been disbanded.
Composition of the Audit Committee
Upon the commencement of the term of office of the new Board of Directors, Tikkurila Oyj's previous Audit Committee's term of office has also ended. The Board of Directors of Tikkurila Oyj will appoint the new members of the Audit Committee separately later. The appointment will be announced separately.
