Starbreeze utser valberedning

By | Corporate News, Investor News | No Comments

Starbreeze AB meddelade i dag att ny Valberedning utsetts. Enligt beslut på årsstämman den 13 november 2014 skall Valberedningen bestå av en ledamot representerande envar av de tre röstmässigt största ägarna jämte styrelseordföranden. Tillsättningen av Valberedningen har skett genom att Starbreeze styrelseordförande Michael Hjort på grundval av bolagets, av Euroclear tillhandahållna, förteckning över registrerade aktieägare per den 30 juli 2015 kontaktat de för bolaget största kända ägarna. Med beaktande av pågående ägarförändringar har de största aktieägarna uppmanats att var och en föreslå en representant till Valberedningen. När någon av dessa tillfrågade aktieägare avstått sin rätt att utse representant till Valberedningen har nästa aktieägare i storleksordning beretts tillfälle att utse ledamot till dess att Valberedning kunnat utses.

Efter dessa kontakter har Valberedningen utsetts och består av följande ledamöter:

  • Michael Hjorth (styrelseordförande i Starbreeze)
  • Bo Andersson Klint (representant för Varvtre AB)
  • Rami Galante  (representant för Societe Generale, Securities Services SPA/Digital Bros)
  • Viktor Vallin (representant för Marcus Wass)

Valberedningens uppgift är att inför årsstämman i november 2015 framlägga förslag avseende antal styrelseledamöter som skall väljas av stämman, styrelsearvode, styrelsens sammansättning, styrelseordförande, ordförande på stämman samt val av revisorer och revisorsarvoden. Aktieägare som vill komma i kontakt med Valberedningen kan vända sig till Michael Hjorth, Styrelseordförande Starbreeze, telefon: +46(0)70-2655273, e-post: micke.hjorth@starbreeze.com. Den som vill lämna förslag eller synpunkter till Valberedningen kan göra detta skriftligen genom brev till Starbreeze AB, Box 7731, 103 95 Stockholm.

See it more like a blog post format where we, the employees, can express ourselves within our areas of interest.

So, we wanted to make E3 something special this year. We decided to showcase not only the latest PAYDAY2 DLC – The Casino and PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition in our fabulous casino themed booth occupying our usual spot in the West Hall lobby. Nah we wanted more. We decided that we wanted the space next to it as well, to feature a first preview of OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead. In VR. With our new VR-initiative and HMD StarVR. Boom.

Also, did we mention we had real life walkers roaming the halls? It was awesome.

We had a great time meeting members of the press, old as well as new potential partners and fans, serving up more than 1200 VR-demos throughout the week. Please enjoy a selected news sweep starting from the announcement of our E3 line-up at House of Blues on June 13 and onwards together with a gallery below:
