The Board of Directors has elected Fredrik Cappelen (Chair), Ingrid Bonde and Johan Menckel as members of the Audit Committee for the period up to and including next annual general meeting. The majority of the Audit Committee members are considered independent of the company and senior management.
Specifically, the Committee monitors the financial reporting, the effectiveness of internal control, internal audit activities and the risk management system. The Committee also stays informed about annual statutory audits. It assesses the external auditor's independence and approves the performance of non-audit services.
The Committee presents its findings and proposals to the Board, prior to the Board's decision.
