Uponor re-establishes Board committees
Uponor Corporation's Board of Directors today made a decision to re-establish
its two committees, i.e. the audit committee and the nomination committee, in
alignment with a similar decision made in December 2008.
Both committees have the same charters as earlier.
The audit committee comprises Jari Paasikivi, Aimo Rajahalme (chairman) and
The nomination committee will be appointed later. Uponor will deviate from the
Finnish Corporate Governance Code recommendation by requesting the three
largest shareholders, as per 31 July 2009, each appoint one member to the
nomination committee. The members shall appoint the chairman from amongst
themselves. In addition, the Board appointed its Chairman of the Board as an
expert member of the nomination committee.

a model in which the largest shareholders nominate the members of the
nomination committee will best serve the interests of the shareholders as well
as the goal of transparency.
The Board further resolved that it will continue to fulfil the duties of the
remuneration committee itself, thus no separate remuneration committee will be
