NORDIC BUSINESS REPORT-April 15, 2019-Bactiguard Holding reports on board proposals of nomination committee


Bactiguard Holding AB (Bactiguard)(STO:BACTIB), a Swedish medical device company, announced on Friday that its nomination committee has proposed to the Annual General Meeting 2019, that Professor Anna Martling and Thomas von Koch be elected as new board members.

Martling is professor of Surgery and Dean of Campus North at Karolinska Institutet and at the same time senior consultant surgeon in cancer at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. She has broad experience of both clinical work and research, especially in cancer diseases. Since 2019, Martling is a member of the faculty board at Karolinska Institutet. Martling has a holding of 823 B shares in Bactiguard.

Also, von Koch is one of two founders and principal owners of Bactiguard and was chairman of the board of directors during the period 2005 to 2014. In connection with his appointment as CEO of EQT Partners AB (EQT), von Koch resigned his assignment on the board of Bactiguard in March 2014. At the end of 2018, he stepped down from the CEO role in EQT and thus freed more room for other assignments.

He has a holding of 2,000,000 A shares and 4,125,878 B-shares in Bactiguard (directly and via companies), corresponding to 18.4% of the capital and 34.8% of the votes in the company.

In addition, the nomination committee has proposed re-election of the board members Mia Arnhult, Christian Kinch and Jan Stahlberg, also to be re-elected as chairman of the board. Reportedly, Marie Wickman-Chantereau and Svante Ostblom have both declined re -election.
