Keops' Supervisory Board will, as a part of the Company's strengthening of Corporate Governance, recommend the election of a number of new members for the Supervisory Board at the Annual General Meeting on 26 January 2006.
The following persons have acknowledged to the Company that they will stand for election:
- Executive Officer Steen Hundevad Knudsen, AP Møller - Mærsk A/S
- CEO Jesper Møller, Toms Gruppen A/S
- Professor of accounting Thomas Plenborg, Copenhagen Business School
As Keops owns 33% of Capinordic A/S in which Steen Bryde is Group Chief Executive, and with reference to the rules on good Corporate Governance, he will not stand for reelection for the Supervisory Board.
Further to this, the Supervisory Board recommends re-election of Director Jørgen Basso Larsen, Director Skarphédinn Berg Steinarsson and Director Eiríkur S. Jóhannsson.
As previously announced, the Executive Board of Keops A/S consists of Group Chief Executive Ole Vag¬ner
The strengthening of Corporate Governance is a part of the Group's overall six-point plant for the next steps of the Group's development as announced in the preliminary announcement of financial statements on 14 December 2006.
