Annulment of resolution on the nomination committee (item 7)
At the Annual General Meeting held on 12 May 2015, it was resolved that the company's nomination committee shall consist of representatives from the four largest shareholders by voting powers (grouped by owner) and the Chairman of the Board. Since Circassia Pharmaceuticals plc ("Circassia") now holds more than 90 per cent of the shares and votes in Aerocrine, Circassia is of the opinion that there is no longer any reason to have a nomination committee in the company and therefore proposes that the EGM resolves to annul the resolution on the nomination committee made by the 2015 Annual General Meeting.
Resolution on fees payable to the Board (item 8)
Circassia proposes that no fees shall be paid to the members of the Board.
Resolution of the number of Board members (item 9)
Circassia proposes that the company's Board shall consist of five Board members.
Election of Board members (item 10)
Circassia proposes that Steven Harris, Julien Cotta, Matthew Frankel, Mats Carlson and Caroline Andersson are elected as Board members for the period until the end of the next Annual General Meeting, to replace all current members of the Board, and that Steve Harris is elected as Chairman of the Board. Information regarding the proposed Board members are available on the company's website, www.aerocrine.com.
Number of shares and votes
As of the date of this notice, there is a total of 698,844,749 shares in Aerocrine with one vote each, corresponding to a total of 698,844,749 votes. The company does not hold any own shares.
Shareholder's right to request information
The Board of Directors and the CEO shall, if any shareholder so requests and the Board believes that it can be done without material harm to the company, provide information regarding circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda, circumstances that can affect the assessment of the company's or its subsidiaries' financial situation and the company's relation to other companies within the group and the consolidated accounts.
