Uponor Board organisation and roles

In its organising meeting subsequent to the AGM held earlier today, the Board of Directors elected Jorma Eloranta as Chair and Annika Paasikivi as Deputy Chair of the Board.

The Board decided to re-establish an Audit Committee and a Personnel and Remuneration Committee. The committee charters are described on the company’s web site at http://investors.uponor.com > Governance > Corporate governance > Board committees.

With regard to the Personnel and Remuneration Committee, Uponor does not comply with the Finnish Corporate Governance Code that recommends three members in a Board committee. Uponor considers that sufficient expertise for the Personnel and Remuneration Committee is secured with two members. The Committee acts as a preparatory and assisting body for the Board of Directors, and all essential matters relating to remuneration shall be dealt by the Board of Directors. Furthermore, the Committee may also obtain views from outside of the Committee

Composition of the Audit Committee:
Timo Ihamuotila (chair)
Markus Lengauer
Annika Paasikivi
Jari Rosendal

Composition of the Personnel and Remuneration Committee:
Jorma Eloranta (chair)
Annika Paasikivi
