Reference is made to the stock exchange release 29 December 2023 regarding the Extraordinary General Meeting on 22 January 2024. The Nomination Committee of Carasent ASA proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting votes no to the proposed changes to the Board.
The Nomination Committee of Carasent ASA (“Committee”) proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting ("EGM") votes no to the proposed changes to the Board. The Committee has taken the following information into account:
- Aeternum has recently transferred its shares in Carasent ASA to ACapital Cara HoldCo AS (“Holdco”), and the Committee further understands that Aeternum will lose control of Holdco within a couple of days following the EGM; and
- Aeternum was represented on the Nomination Committee until recently, when its representative resigned on November 10, 2023. Furthermore, the Board member affiliated with Aeternum resigned on November 30, 2023.
Based on this, the Committee considers it prudent to await the change of control in Holdco to avoid the risk of multiple Board changes over a short period of time. The Committee will further seek to work together with Holdco’s new controlling shareholder to ensure appropriate representation on the Committee.
